THIS CHARACTER WILL NOT BE A MAIN CHARACTER IN SEASON 10
Season 10 SummaryEdit
In What A Girl Wants Part 2, a cheerleader with blonde hair is seen cheering because it is the beginning of the school year. The girl cheering is supposed to resemble, Manny's season seven hair style, with her blonde died hair. The character with the blonde hair, looks like filipino, which was Manny's race. She has Manny's same face, and has the same smile, and has dimples. The camera only follows on her for a mear 3-4 seconds, but they try to imply that it is a "new" version of Manny Santos. Also, this unknown character is a cheerleader for the power squad. Manny was a power squad, or formerly known as spirit squad member since season seven.
In Tears Dry On Their Own Part 2, Anya and Riley are walking out of Degrassi about to go to the hospital, and you see the same blonde haired cheerleader sitting on the front steps of the school giving another friend or background character advice. This is very coincidental since Manny was always a good friend, and whenever her friend would need advice she'd give it to them no matter what. For instance, in close to me, Manny gave Jane advice on what to do with her relationship problems.
