Screen burn: "Where a permanent mark is burnt into the mask of the TV screen due to prolonged display."

If Jake's life is a TV show, the set that plays it is afflicted with screen burn, forever displaying his character in a frozen state, unable to change. He is the nice guy who always finishes last. He is stuck being the boring, straight, white male. 

Mateo is a bisexual, biracial troublemaker and everything that a girl wants. 

Jake aims to rewrite his character to win the girl of his dreams, and Mateo is going to help him (willingly or not).
