They say love is blind, but looking at some of the couples on TV, I’m starting to think it’s also deaf and mute. Granted, we all love the drama that comes with a good old-fashioned love story, I just don’t know how in the world these particular couples would ever fall for each other. In the real world, things are different, but on TV is seems that anyone has a shot with anyone, so here are 11 TV characters who dated people way out of their league.
1. Leonard and Penny, The Big Bang Theory
From the very beginning this unholy union was meant to be. The second Penny moved in to the apartment across Leonard, I said “boy, those two are gonna get married”. But as it usually goes, it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. And even though I don’t like what the show has become, Penny and Leonard’s journey is one of the best things about it.
2. Jay and Gloria, Modern Family
Gee, where do I start here… Do I even need to say anything? Take Gloria… and then there’s Jay. Just, how? I’d get it if she was after his money, but she clearly loves him. Call agents Mulder and Scully, something’s not right here!
3. Ross and Rachel, Friends
On one side, we have Rachel, or, in reality, young Jennifer Aniston – it doesn’t get any better than that! Ross, on the other hand, well… He’s Ross. They have absolutely nothing in common, nor do they complement each other. At least they took breaks while dating. Yes, they were on a freaking break!
4. Cersei and King Robert, Game of Thrones
Ah, finally a relationship I can understand! The only real reason a hottie like Cersei would marry a smelly old dude like Robert, is because she’s in it for the gold and power! I mean, this one’s a no-brainer, so let’s move on.
