It's no secret that Jane the Virgin has taken TV by storm. What's not to love about the show? You've got the wonderfully strong and empowering character in Jane, a supportive and ever-growing mother in Xo, and a hilariously dramatic and goofy telenovela father in Rogelio. If Rogelio is one of your favorite characters on Jane The Virgin , you're not alone. #VivaDeLaVega is the perfect stand-out character, as he not only leaves me laughing as a fan, but also offers some wise and sound advice to use in my everyday life.
Rogelio might not stand out as your typical words-of-wisdom character on a television show, but that's just because he is a bit of a Confucius in disguise. When you think Rogelio is talking about himself and his fame, he's really handing out life advice that Jane the Virgin fans can carry with them through the highest highs and lowest lows of life. Sometimes, you just need a semi-conceited soap star to tell you what's what.
Here are 12 life lessons from Rogelio that should come in handy if you ever find yourself lost in life, and need some help from the best telenovela star on TV.
