Bakit Lahat Ng Gwapo May Boyfriend? follows Kylie (Curtis), a wedding planner whose ex-boyfriends are all discreet gay men. She decided she won’t be a ‘cover girl’ again for men, who [just] make her their girlfriend so they could keep their ‘straight man’ pretenses.
One day, Benj (Ballesteros), her gay best friend, who is also her ex-boyfriend enlisted her help to stop Diego (Trillo), childhood crush, from marrying the beautiful and classy Fiona (Yam Concepcion). As a woman, who had five gay boyfriends, Kylie got entrusted by her friend to prove that Diego is gay.
Thus, the wedding won’t proceed.
Kylie has developed a fear for new relationships that convinced her that the next guy to ask her to become his girlfriend is [just] like her exes—all gay.
Her theory gets tested when she finally meets Diego and finds out that like her best friend, Benj–she’s attracted to him, too. Her pursuit of proving her theory gets threatened and derailed when she begins falling in love with Diego.
