Introduction

Yolanda Buenaventura is a recurring character in BoJack Horseman. Her first appearance was in Hooray! Todd Episode!, in Season 4.

Physical Appearance

Yolanda is a light pink adult female axolotl with light blue eyes with black pupils, cyan blue lips, and six dark pink external gills sticking out from her head. She appears to have magenta freckles on her nose and cheeks.

According to the model sheets, she is roughly 5 1/2 ft tall.

She wears a blue and white plaid button-down collared shirt underneath a purple and white striped sweater with white sleeves with the sleeves of the plaid shirt cuffed on the outside of the sweater, a white belt, dark blue jeans, dark brown socks, and white shoes with light red soles and peach pink laces.

Personality

Yolanda describes herself as a "tough crowd," claiming that she met Paul Rudd at a cocktail party, and did not find him charming. She typically keeps a deadpan and serious manner. She was initially dismissive of Todd and seemed to greatly dislike his clown dentists.

Although a professional businesswoman, who can act in a stoic and serious manner, she eventually grows to like Todd; despite their significantly different personalities.

However, she expresses concern for Todd's lack of motivation and drive—the two both feel concerned about not having anything else in common, besides being asexual.

This results in their breakup at the end of Season 5. Todd wants Yolanda to find someone better than him, but they agree if they don't find anyone by the time they're one hundred, they'll get back together.

Background

History

Yolanda Buenaventura was raised in a sex-obsessed family. Her mother Angelica is a famous adult film star, her father is an erotic novelist, and her identical twin sister, Mindy, writes for a sex advice column.

Despite this, Yolanda is asexual but stayed closeted from her family.

When she was in high school and still trying to figure out her sexuality, she dressed up as Mindy and tried to seduce her boyfriend, but she realized she wasn't into it. However, the whole school found out, including Mindy; who continued to hold a grudge against Yolanda.

Season 4

S4E03 Asexual meet up

Yolanda's cameo in "Hooray! Todd Episode!"

Yolanda had a cameo appearance in Hooray! Todd Episode!, where she was seen in the background of an asexual meetup.

Yolanda is officially introduced in Lovin that cali lifestyle!! She meets with Todd at the diner in January 2018, because his clown dentist practice is not getting great reviews, due to most of the dentists not being actually licensed. Also, due to the fact, most of the children finding them frightening.

However, Todd proposes that he could turn his business into an entertainment company. He makes a deal, that if in a week he made an entertaining show for Yolanda; she could make them a legitimate business. If not, he will dissolve the business, and set the clowns loose into the woods. Yolanda agrees to the deal.

Yolanda is ultimately not impressed, shuts down the clown dentistry, forcing Todd to release them into the woods.

However, the clown dentists end up getting rabies, due to one of them getting bitten by a rabid raccoon. Todd meets with Yolanda to tell her this, convincing her to help him, since she's partially responsible for the clowns being in the forest. Also, it could damage the Better Business Bureau's reputation, if word gets out.

Todd and Yolanda plan a trap to capture rabies-infected clown dentists, but their plans fall apart and are forced to run off. When they get to a safe distance, a panting Yolanda remarks that she doesn't run much, and needs to get in better shape. This sparks inspiration for Todd.

He makes a new business with the clowns now called "Run For Your Life: Escape The Rabid Clown Dentists!" which has people run away from the rabies clown dentists and gets them in better shape.

This new business is deemed "better" by Yolanda, and Todd thanks Yolanda for her help. Before Yolanda leaves, she asks Todd out. When he tells her he's asexual, she says she is too, and she leaves with a smile on her face.

Season 5

Todd and Yolanda are still together by the beginning of Season 5.

However, Yolanda tells Todd, she is concerned that he doesn't seem to have any ambitions in life career-wise.

She also shows self-consciousness, about her and Todd having polar opposite personalities after he says asexuals should have a dating app—due to the difficulty of romantic asexuals finding each other. They may just have to settle, even if they don't have anything in common, and Yolanda defensively said that could be good for people.

Todd tries looking for work and inadvertently becomes president of ad sales at WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com due to his experiences, that resulted from his past misadventures. He was initially just applying to be a janitor, for a scheme for BoJack.

In Planned Obsolescence, Yolanda goes to pick up Todd from WhatTimeIsItRightNow.com. They're going to meet Yolanda's parents, but Yolanda tells Todd that she hasn't told them that she's asexual. She asks Todd if just for tonight they can pretend to be sexually active. Todd agrees but says that her parents probably wouldn't bring up that topic during dinner. Yolanda reluctantly agrees.

Todd and Yolanda are having dinner with her family, where it's revealed they're sex-obsessed—her father is an erotic novelist, her mother Angelica is a famous adult film star, and her identical twin sister Mindy is a sex adviser columnist. After Todd becomes uncomfortable when Mindy hits on him, he and Yolanda try to leave, but Yolanda's parents insist they stay the night and make love in their house. Yolanda reluctantly says yes to this offer.

Yolanda's mom, Angelica, asks Todd for some help moving something. Todd goes to help her but when he gets to her room, she drops her robe and exposes herself. When Todd does not show signs of being aroused, Angelica confirms her theory that he is asexual. Todd accidentally blurts out a confirmation to this and runs out.

However, he gets pulled into Mindy's room, and she tells him to meet her under the oak tree at midnight for sex. Todd escapes and gets back to Yolanda's room and tells her what happened. Yolanda comes up with a plan—after Mindy leaves for the oak tree outside, she'll dress up as Mindy, and tell their mom that Todd made a pass at her.

At midnight after Mindy leaves, Yolanda sneaks into Mindy's bedroom to steal her clothes. However, Angelica arrives in Yolanda's room and corners Todd, revealing she researched asexuality and is fascinated by it, and that she still wants Todd to seduce her—asexually.

Mindy returns to her bedroom mad that Todd stood her up, and sees Yolanda's clothes on the floor, which gives her a devious idea.

Yolanda, dressed as Mindy, knocks on her mom's door but hears Mindy being called by their father, so she goes to see him. Todd tells Angelica to go put on every piece of clothing she owns because asexuals do that so they don't appear sexy.

Yolanda's dad shows "Mindy" a barrel of her grandmother's secret lubricant that he wants to give Yolanda, and tells her it's worth $100,000 dollars. Mindy goes into Yolanda's room pretending to be Yolanda and tries to seduce Todd, although the real Yolanda comes in telling Todd about the lube.

She notices Mindy dressed like her, and they start wrestling on the bedroom floor. Yolanda's father brings the barrel up the stairs and hears the racket coming from the bedroom. Thinking Todd and Yolanda no longer need the lube, as he believes they are already having sex, he becomes disappointed. Angelica walks out wearing every article of clothing she owns, as instructed by Todd. Her husband then questions what she's wearing.

The two sisters then bring the fight out into the hall, accidentally opening the lube barrel and causing it to spill everywhere. Mr. Buenaventura slips down the stairs and Angelica trips over the balcony, breaking the railing. Yolanda and Mindy manage to grab on to her arms before she falls, and Angelica winds up dangling over the broken railing, with the sisters holding on to her.

Yolanda's dad tells Todd to plug the hole with his erect penis, but Todd, not wanting to blow his and Yolanda's covers, tries to pull his shoe off to use his big toe, calling it "the penis of the foot." He ends up slipping and pushing the barrel over the edge of the banister. In the process, he ends up pushing Angelica, Mindy, Yolanda, and himself over the edge of the banister as well. They end up falling back downstairs from the upper level of the house. The barrel then falls and breaks. It winds up covering everyone and the entire living room in lube. This situation further escalates the fighting.

Yolanda's family continues to fight each other. Yolanda's dad is furious at Todd for destroying their family heirloom, and Todd slips out of the house on the lube as he says sorry. As Yolanda and Mindy fight, Mindy then brings up the incident with her boyfriend in high school. Yolanda finally admits she didn't actually sleep with him, and, as she pushes Mindy off of her, yells that she's asexual, surprising everyone.

On the car ride home, it's revealed Yolanda's family was very accepting of her asexuality.

However, Todd asks Yolanda why she lied and told her parents that he went to college. She tells him that she wanted to make him look impressive.

Todd tells Yolanda that they need to break up because the only thing they have in common is that they're asexual.
