The Pepper costume features a fire-inspired colour palette, and consists of a dress, adorned with jewels across the torso and sleeves, and a skirt, that appears to be made bunches of red tulle. The costume also features orange boots laced all the way up the thigh.
The mask itself, resembles the top of a chilli pepper. It has a large grin and bright blue eyes, similar to that of Jalapeño from the second season of ¿Quién es la máscara?. The stem of the pepper features two leaf-like strands, resembling hair.

|3||"I'm excited to come into the competition as a wild card, especially as the Pepper. I want to spice things up. You know, I've always had my own flavour, and I'm constantly thinking of ways to not be bland. But this last year has been the craziest. Something I did went viral basically overnight. It spreads like fire. I never expected any of it. But the coolest part was seeing people take what I did and add their own flavour to it. You know how they say strike when the iron's hot? That's why I'm here. You know? What the hell. Why not get out there and keep the flame alive and party as the Pepper?"|
|5||"If I could revisit any time in my life, it would be when I first hit big. I was suddenly pulled in a million directions. There were interviews, award shows, red carpets, but I think sometimes you can get so caught up in what's next that you're not really living in the what's now. And I wish that I had enjoyed that time for what it was, the beginning of an amazing career. I'm trying to remember that lesson here. I actually signed on to do this a few days before it started, so it's been that same sort of whirlwind. I don't think people realize all that goes into this. There's costume fittings, music meetings, but it's crazy because it all comes together. And when it does, it's magic. I've always believed in magic. I see myself a bit of a wizard. And I'm trying to stay calm because the semifinals are so close."|
|7||"You know, joining the competition just a few days before it started, I really had to adjust very quickly. I can't believe that I made it to the semifinals. My whole goal is just to explore another side of myself. I kind of had like a good girl thing for a long time and with the Pepper comes a lot of spice and hotness and energy. Tonight, I'm really gonna dig into my ability to tell a story. All the songs I've sung so far, they've got a lot of emotion in them, like recovering from pain. But the hardest thing I've experienced was watching the one I love and care for most face the unthinkable. I just remember wanting things to get better, and this song reminds me of that."|
