Meet Alessandra, the "Full House Quinceañera"
Telemundo is proud to announce that Alessandra Quiñonez will be one of the girls featured on MVTO's new docu-series, "Quinceañera." The show, airing August 15th on MVTO's Facebook Page, will revolve around seven quinceañeras and the rollercoaster of emotions they face while planning for their big day.
Alessandra Quiñonez is a studious, kind, and well-spoken teen. She fills her time with clubs and extracurricular activities like the Spanish club, cheer squad, K-pop group, and soccer.
Alessandra wasn’t sure about having a Quinceañera party at first, but all it took was one look in her princess-like gown for her to realize it was meant to be. Alessandra’s mom is especially excited about her decision because she wants her daughter’s day to be perfect, since she never got to have a Quince of her own.
Alessandra will be celebrating her big day with an Under The Sea theme. Alessandra will only be doing the Shoe Exchange but is making sure to have her Toast (brindis) done in English and Spanish for her grandmothers.
For a week leading up to the event, she’ll have an additional 11 family members from Chicago and Guatemala stay in her house; they’ve even cleaned out the garage and painted their rooms to accommodate the large family. Alessandra and her parents want their family members to feel welcome but are afraid of dealing with the stress of the party combined with the responsibility of hosting.

Alessandra is worried that her friends will forget the dance moves during the "Baile Sorpresa." She’s having six couples join her in a dance and she’s not confident that they will all be able to learn everything in time.

Alessandra’s mom is worried that the decorations in the hall will not live up to her expectations. With the pressure of the decorations and the big dance, how will Alessandra and her mom stay sane until the day of the party?
After her Quince, she expects to be treated more like an adult, even if that means more chores and helping contribute to the family more, but like any teenage girl, hopes to be able to date as well.
With all the chaos at home, will Alessandra still manage to be the center of attention as she hoped?
