Eva (Papi) Torres, The L Word
Eva “Papi” Torres (Janina Gavankar)
When Alice turned The Chart into an interactive website, she found a woman known only as “Papi” with the most conquests, even more than Shane, the show’s resident player. Alice then went on a mission to find and interview Papi for her radio show. After they met, Papi slept with Alice after their date, and then with her roommate Helena the following day.
Papi was at first dismissive of Alice and her friends, believing them to be too spoiled, but ended up befriending them and also introducing Tasha to the group. She was a minor character, and as one of the few Latin American women on the show, also highly stereotyped, portrayed as overly sexual and known for her sassy comebacks.
