"[Adam] was the best. He was the very best."
— Bianca to Drew in Young Forever

The friendship between Bianca DeSousa and Adam Torres, known as Badam (Bianca/Adam), began in the eleventh season of Degrassi. The two began a flirtatious friendship when Adam chose Bianca as his partner for their ballroom dancing class. When Bianca found out that Adam was an FTM transgender, she outed him, thus ending their short-lived friendship. However, they reconciled when Bianca finally apologized to Adam for her earlier behavior, and have since shown to be good friends with each other.

Friendship History


Bianca and Adam first interacted in My Body Is A Cage (1), when they were assigned to be dance partners. They began flirting and seemed to like each other, until Bianca found out that Adam was an FTM transgender. After that, the two became enemies, until Bianca apologized for her behavior towards him in the past. They were seen dancing together in Dead and Gone (2), and were good friends at the time.

Season 10

In I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself (2), At a Dead Hand concert that Adam, Sav Bhandari, and Eli Goldsworthy attend, a drunk Bianca appears and falls into Sav's arms. Sav tries to calm her down, and she calls him "the guy at school who doesn't like fun." About to leave, they stay for the band's encore. After the encore is finished, Sav rushes to the car, bringing Bianca because she is too drunk to drive. Sav decides to speed, and the police soon begin following him. Bianca yells "floor it" because she can't be caught drunk again since she was caught once before.

In My Body Is A Cage (1), Adam discusses which is worse: ballroom dancing or ping pong with Bianca. While taking attendance, the teacher calls out "Gracie Torres" (Adam's birthname), which confuses Bianca. While choosing partners for ballroom dancing, Adam chooses Bianca, and she accepts with a snarky comment. During the actual dance, the tension between Bianca and Adam grows. After class, they compliment each other and start to flirt. Bianca touches his chest and notices something is there. When he proceeds to back up slowly, Bianca grabs his shirt and rips it open, only to find that Adam is physically a female. She is disgusted and Adam runs away, humiliated and embarrassed.

In My Body Is A Cage (2), Adam arrives at remedial gym, where Bianca, the one who outed Adam, is telling about how she accidentally touched Adam's boobs to listeners. Adam approaches Bianca and asks her if she'll still be his dance partner. Bianca denies being a lesbian, and she threatens and tells him he needs therapy. When Adam appears as Grace in remedial gym class, Bianca makes a snide comment and is sent to the principal's office.

In Purple Pills (2), Bianca shows up in the weight room to fight the "girl" Fitz wanted her to fight. She doesn't know it's Adam, and when she learns it's him she pretty much rolls her eyes, and tells them that she should just get it over with. She then walks up to Adam and starts to get ready to fight. When Adam doesn't know what's going on Fitz explains that if he were really a dude, he wouldn't fight a girl. Bianca starts to tap and get ready to punch Adam, until Adam storms off angrily. Bianca is upset that she's not fighting anyone.

Adam and Bianca slow dancing once again, at prom.

In Dead and Gone (2), Bianca goes to prom trying to have a good time, even though Katie and Adam don't want her there. She is civil with Katie even though she has feeling for Drew. She then dances with Adam and apologizes for her not letting him be her ballroom partner. Bianca is shocked to see Vince walk in, and tells Drew she will handle it. Bianca tries to calm Vince down, but he grabs her again. Drew comes and saves her. Vince then tries to shoot one of them, drops the gun and flees to his warehouse. The bullets hits Adam, and Bianca picks up the gun, and decides she has to kill Vince. Bianca goes to his secret warehouse, intending on killing him. Bianca tells Drew she's tired of being Vince's slave and killing him is the only way out. Drew talks her out of it and hands her a phone. Bianca calls the police and tells them everything she knows about Vince and his gang. She sits in a police cab crying as Vince gets arrested. She then goes to the hospital to see how Adam is, and Drew tells his mom to get her a lawyer. Mrs. Torres agrees, and Bianca mouths "thank you" to Drew.

In Nowhere to Run, Bianca is shown to be working for Drew's father as part of her plea bargain. She has become good friends with the Torres family, making Katie jealous. She and Adam were the only ones in the Torres' House to not go to the party at Jake's cabin. Then Bianca calls Clare, needing to know where Drew left the Xbox controller. Clare tells Bianca that she isn't at the cabin and then the two decide to go up there. Bianca asks Adam to come, but he has physical therapy and can't.
