In the second season premiere of "Baby Daddy" titled "I'm Not That Guy," Ben thinks he might like Riley and tries to convince her he's changed his playboy ways. Riley invites Ben to be her date at a work party, but Ben's efforts to prove he is dependable fall short. Danny hopes to come to Riley's rescue but he arrives only to find Riley getting friendly with another man. Meanwhile, Tucker schemes to go out with a model and Bonnie attempts to get to know a handsome stranger...with a little help from Emma.

"Baby Daddy," which launched as the network's #1 comedy series in ABC Family history, follows Ben (Bilodeau), a young man in his early 20's living the life of a bachelor as a bartender in New York City with his buddy, Tucker (Mowry), and his brother, Danny (Theler), a professional hockey player. Their lives are turned upside down when they come home one day to find a baby girl left on the doorstep by an ex-girlfriend of Ben's. After much deliberation, Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his friends and his protective and sometimes over-bearing mother, Bonnie (Peterman), and his close female friend, Riley (Kane), who has had a secret crush on him since childhood. Riley is hopeful that Ben will finally take notice, but she doesn't realize that Ben's brother, Danny, is harboring a secret crush on her.
