Most Realistic Glee Characters

The most realistic characters from our beloved Glee!
The Top Ten
1 Kurt

His struggle with bullying, and the fact that things aren't just handed to him on a silver platter ( Rachel, Blaine ) make him realistic and a good person to look to for realism in the show. His uncertainty about taking Blaine back after he cheated on him, his issues with seeing all of his friends succeed while he sits on the sidelines, his reaction to his father's heart attack, his issues with religion and faith not being as interchangeable as people believe - all these things make Kurt a realistic character that fans can look to in order to see themselves.

I can relate to Kurt in almost every single way, minus the being gay part. He can push aside insults and taunts like they're nothing, and I really respect that. And Kurt still manages to confront his bullies while discovering who he is. All his internal struggles just emphasize the problems going on inside all of us. He expresses himself and doesn't care what other people think. I loved in that Gaga episode when Karofsky and Azimio pushed him and Tina into some lockers he went full out diva on them; and when he chases down Karofsky and calls him a chubby guy who sweats too much and will be bald by the time he's thirty. SERIOUSLY ADORABLE AND TOTALLY MY FAVORITE CHARACTER

Season 1 Is very realistic and then some further episodes stand out but I think some of the older prima donna actresses did not like Chris Colfer’s rise and suddenly the part started to shrink and then overshadowed by Rachel and Blaine. But to me he had the absolutely the best song in the entire show...As if We Never Said Goodbye.

Kurt is one of my favorites! Chris Colfer makes Kurt’s character so much more realistic with his great acting. Kurt goes through things that people in real life go through. Kurt is amazing!

2 Quinn

She's not one of my favorite characters but she is realistic. She went from biggest loser Lucy Caboosey to Queen Bee Quinn Fabray and she fell for the bad boy while she was dating someone.

For me, she has the most relatable and realistic character in Glee. Quinn's character has depth that just grows deeper every season, just like every other human experience. And just like the other Glee characters, Quinn's stories and experiences have made more of an impact in me, thus, Quinn's development is my favorite one.

Let's face it. EVERYONE wants to be popular. And her? After how much she was bullied at her old school and what she used to look like? I understand. She's has a good side and can be really sweet. She's like a lot of teenage girls but is still one of a kind.

Quinn has her moments of selfishness but underneath all that she is a kind hearted girl, fighting her way through life. She is really inspiring for going through all she did and still making it all the way to yale. Quinn is amazing!

3 Rachel

Getting another Broadway job after breaking her contract with Funny Girl is NOT realistic. If it were, she would've been sued, and that record would follow her around for the rest of her life. She's nothing but immature and self centered, and that's not a way to get what you want. There's a reason Santana is at the top of the list you Santana haters, and that's because Santana is better. She always has been better, and she always will be. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it

She is the most realistic and inspirational character for me. She has big dreams, dreams of being someone big, chase what she loves to do and don't care about what others think. I totally understand how bad she wants to leave her hometown and achieve something big, because that's what all the small town girls (including myself) dream of.

I love how rachel set her goals and reached them. She aimed high for the stars and she believed so much she reached it.

So much better than that joke Santana

4 Santana

Santana is the most realistic character on Glee because there is more to her than meets the eye and she is three dimensional, just like people in the real world are. She has this cold-hearted bitch facade but deep down she's caring and empathetic. The reason she is so snarky and cruel at times is because of her insecurities and inner conflicts with accepting her sexuality and her feelings for Britt. Santana is realistic because her struggle is one that many can identify with and not everyone is strong or proud enough to allow their reputation and social status to be threatened by embracing their true selves. The reality is - coming out can be complicated, especially for a highschool teenager and sometimes self acceptance is a process. I love and have huge respect for Santana Lopez.

I'm laughing so hard at the comments that said she had no character development. Do you really think Season 1 Santana would've helped Rachel with Brody? Do you really think season 1 Santana would've cared about Brittany being in MIT? Do you really think season 1 Santana would've let Klaine (ruin) piggy back their wedding? If anyone had no development, it's Rachel.

Wait you guys really scared me right here. There are people who exist who are actually as cruel manipulative and concited? are you kidding me she's horrible. Rachel is the real queen

She had so much character development. She became a much better person and she had realistic struggles. Plus she didn’t have everything handed to her (cough cough Rachel) and she had to work for and fight for what she wanted.

5 Marley

Her weight issue is what every teenager goes through.

Melissa can make anything good

She and Rachel are actually relatable unlike Santana who is just a bitch who has no character development

6 Mercedes

Who isn't in love with tater tots.

She's WAY better than Rachel

7 Finn

Awkward, funny, makes mistakes, accidentally says something to screw himself up, hurt by cheaters, loves his girlfriends, we've all been there. He's just a great guy in general, and it's so sad he died so young

He was everyone's leader. Kind hearted, the trying to find where he fit into in life. Just all round good guy. Struggling with what every person at that age struggles with.

I think that most teenage boys can relate to Finn and most teenage girls can relate to Rachel, that's why they are/were the lead characters.

8 Blaine

He's doesn't like to talk about his problems and kind of an outsider in the New Directions. He's also dealt with a lot of problems even though it doesn't seem like it. I easily relate to all of his main characteristics (Besides him being gay, so that's why I believe he's the most realistic.

Nobody wheres that much hair gel

(sarcasm) Yes, because EVERYONE has tried to rape their boyfriends before. What a "great" example for children. Seriously, just no. He is just your typical jerk and bad boyfriend. Kurt WAS the man in the relationship

9 Tina

Everyone has had a hard time coming out of their shell

10 Mike

His relationship with his dad was very realistic. Mike was under a LOT of pressure - he was a football star, an A++ student, and was in glee club. But as soon as he got an A-, his dad was unhappy and disappointed. He wanted Mike to quit glee club, something he really loved. Mike then cracked and followed his heart - instead of doing what his dad wants (like always), he went to audition for the role in a musical. He also told his dad that he wants to be a dancer, and not a doctor or a lawyer. After that, his dad didn't even want to talk to him. It was until later in the season that his dad finally understood his decision and decided to support him in his dream.

The Contenders
11 Lauren Zizes

Bad ass that doesn't care what people think about her, you go girl!

A terrible character, ruined an otherwise great season

She is so amazing

12 Artie

Artie is so sweet. He has to live as a kid in a wheelchair and he doesn't complain. He is an amazing and kind hearted boy

Artie is a good name how is doing with your friends and stuff artie.

13 Blaine Anderson

He is a gay guy who loves to sing and has to face the worst because of it but through all of that he continues to embrace it no matter what other people say

14 Becky Jackson
15 Lord Tubbington

The best and most underrated glee character deals with the struggles we all go through every day, like not being able to poop candy bars. While sad, Lord Tubbington's story is beautiful and relatable to almost all of us. He is a great character, and we learn several inspiring life lessons from him.

Where to start... Lord tubbington is such a cute and hilarious character

Lord Tubbington inspires me so much. He deserves to be number 1, and a solo.

16 Dave Karofsky

He was victim of bullying by Finn Hudson in fifth grade. In high school he became a bully and bullied every glee club member later focusing on Kurt for a several months. He then got a great redemption arc and he ended up facing an unprecedented level of bullying when his football teammates discovered he was gay. He became a totally new person during his redemption arc he was able to be himself, even though Glee used him like a toy to bring back Klaine together and that was awful.

He deals with his sexuality and that's something very common and well portrayed in the show.

17 Bree Davenport

There is a lot of mean people in high schools and she is a perfect representation

Leo howard and bree davenport were never in glee

18 Puck

Hot Hot cute cute hot cute cute hot cute cute song

19 Ryder

Troubles with his spelling and reading, feeling stupid. Getting hurt when his "girlfriend" was fake

20 Leo Howard Leo Howard is an American actor, model and martial artist. He began his acting career at the age of seven, Howard is known for incorporating his karate skills into his feature film and television roles.
