Top Ten Worst Big Bang Theory CharactersLedRat
The Top Ten
I think Penny, and not Amy, would have made the best Queen for Sheldon's Kingdom. But no, they had to wedge this puzzling and annoyingly dour Amy in between Sheldon and Penny. Amy is changing Sheldon, sure, but now he is not the over-achieving genius when he is with Amy because she competes with him and seeks her own validation instead of idolizing him. He is far, far ahead of Amy in terms of scientific intellect, but she just drags him down, and it's ruining the show.
A character that brings any momentum in a scene to an abrupt halt, she was almost funny and interesting at first, but has evolved into a character who is selfish, cloying, needy, manipulative and often quite disturbing. Referring to Sheldon as a "sexy toddler," secreting bedclothes throughout his apartment and constantly nagging Sheldon for sex or complaining to the other characters about not getting any, she has moved beyond comedic to creepy. The show and the Sheldon and Penny characters could only benefit from her absence.
I was so sick of her immaturity and all of this "Penny is my best friend, not yours" business. What kind of "friend" says that right to another friend's face (Bernadette) and why Bernadette even bothered to put up with the behavior I haven't got a clue. Perhaps she actually is more mature than the resst of the girls with their high school cliquey ways and the reason why she's so angry all the time is because she has to hang out with her husbands crap friends. People think that Amy is this life saviour who changed Sheldon's life for the better, opened his world and all that garbage but seriously just look at how she treats Bernadette. The only time she gives the woman any attention is either when someone in the girl group is having a disagreement with the other and she wants to be everyone's best friend to seek validation, even though it's very back stabbing the way she acts. That's just my Amy rant and I'm glad the show is over. Just, ugh...
Now I figured out what the problem is. Amy is some sort of mixture of the worst of Archie Bunker and George Costanza. There is no pleasing her. She whines. She is manipulative. She is self-absorbed. She turns every social circumstance into it being focused on her. Sheldon will be a miserable man if he marries her. But the writers want him to give up his amazing life of science to marry this awful girl. These writers are sick. Not my kind of comedy show anymore...V 139 Comments
I just can't stand Lucy. Her sight makes me skip the episode instantly.
Her mannerisms. Her facial expressions. Her haircut. Her voice. I just can't.
NOTHING appealing about this character. So ANNOYING.
Horrible character, annoying traits. No redeeming qualities.V 34 Comments
She is the absolute worst. She's cruel, controlling and annoying as all hell. Her fake voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Kill her off already!
She is a terrible person. She is a cruel person, and is also a hippocrit. Very manipulative. Her and Howard are terrible people.
I don't like her sarcastic, undermining, better than all, controlling and lack of compassion attitude. She is just mean and Howard is her puppet. I wish he would grow some balls and put her in her place. That would be a good change for that couple. Get your balls back Howard and show that getting a Woman that will have sex with you regularly is NOT worth a lifetime of belittle meant!
Started out okay but in later seasons she just became sadistic and controllingV 72 Comments
He wasn't bad at first, but then things happened, firstly he is the biggest douche on the show. Here's why: If you remember one episode he actually slept with a girl that Howard picked up, then some time after that he shows Bernadette his experiment, which is not bad, but then he tell Bernadette Howard isn't comfortable with him showing her the experiment, which again wouldn't of mattered if it wasn't for his past with that other girl he stole from Howard, in other words Howard actually had a reason to not want him to show her the experiment, even though he didn't use that reason. Next he goes out with Raj's sister Priya, without consulting him at all, then he goes on to ignore his presence in the apartment and go into Raj's bedroom with his sister, while I would like to add that Raj should have dropped him at that moment, then while Raj is at home he has intercourse with Priya and then Raj ends up having sex with penny and guess what he is automatically the bad guy.
It's always nice to see a hot girl falls in love with a nerdy fella who is sweet and compassionate in a dorky way. Yet Leonard possesses none of the charming characteristics that would draw a girl like Penny to him. He's often rude, irrationally emotional, fixating on small flaws and frankly a douche in his own way. His relationship with Penny is so forced and unlikely that it's almost painful to watch. The character gets gradually worse seasons after seasons. Also, that's one bad looking bloke...the other guys (Sheldon, Raj, Howard, Steward) aren't good looking but they have certain charm about them. Leonard literally has no charisma whatsoever.
I think Leonard is creepier than Howard used to be in earlier seasons. He only seems to love Penny for her looks and seems likely to be a cheater. Especially since he already cheated on her by kissing someone on a a boat while they were dating. In earlier seasons when him and Penny broke up he immediately slept with another woman, Sheldon's Doctor friend (who ended up also sleeping with Raj as well). He slept with an older lady to gain funding for the university and this list goes on and on. He's gross and whiny. Big old yuck from me.
Quite frankly, I've stopped watching this show because of Leonard. He is a hypocrite and annoying, He constantly whines and keeps doing the same mistakes over and over again, it's just gotten repetitive.
Here's an example: In one of the seasons, He has a relationship with Raj's sister, he has intercourse in the same apartment, with Raj hanging out next door and feels no shame in it (Who would even do that to their friend? it's just wrong on so many levels) then when Raj does it with Penny, He get's mad even though he's not with penny because they broke up and he's now doing Rajs' sister. I can't understand his logic?
Like I said, He's a hypocrite, self centered, arrogant, whiney character which just gets more and more annoying as time goes on.
I'm pretty sure the reason why, The producers of this show included Leonard in the first place, was so that he could kinda be the normal person in the group. It instead, just progressed casually into madness.
I know from experience that people like Beverly Hofstadter exist and there is nothing worse than having a parent like this - takes away every chance you have in life, you will never (fully) recover from this. Leonard is such a sweet person and I am glad he got Penny and his friends, but he does not deserve such a mother. At least his father seems okay.
There is always room for mean or cruel comedy, but Beverly takes it to an extreme. Maybe it's because her condescending attitude is directly almost solely at her own son. She can be critical of Penny, Raj, and Howard, but nothing like she is with Leonard. I think the main characters of this show are just too likable and relatable, especially for those of us who have watched it from the beginning, to find anything funny about one of them being constantly humiliated by someone who should support them.
She is such a horrible mother if I were Leonard I would make sure not to even talk to her ever again I mean she belittles Leonard at every point come on dude
Generally boring and annoying, the only reason that she has remained low on the list is because she rarely appears on the show. - LedRatV 12 Comments
She started out funny, a fish out of water in what early on was truly Nerdvana. But as the series has progressed, she has really turned into a bee with an itch. And she has so many neuroses that she makes Sheldon seem normal by comparison: inferiority complex, daddy issues, commitment phobia, narcissism. And she treats Leonard like crap, like she's doing him a favor by being with him. It's like she is just settling for him until someone better comes along, despite the fact that he is the only guy who was ever interested in more than just her body and genuinely cares for her. She gets mad at him over nothing, even when she is the one that did something wrong (her unknowingly being married to Zak is somehow grounds for being angry with Leonard). And way too often the writers make her the moral compass of the show, despite the fact that she is an alcoholic who could give Kelly Bundy a run for her money in the slut department. She complains that Howard is creepy and pathetic for the way ...more
Penny is just eye candy now. The relationship between Leonard and Penny is unrealistic and stupid. Leonard is to intelligent and Penny is to stupid for their relationship to work out. A better fit for Leonard is Alex, Sheldon. S intern. The show could easily dump Penny (Kaley Cuoco) from the show, than hired another pretty actress and no one would notice or even care. Kaley Cuoco is a lousy actress, once the Big Bang Theory has ended she will be typecast and never get a real acting job ever!
You're just jealous because you can't get as many people interested in you.
So cruel treats leonard like dirt. Treated Amy like dirt in seasons 4 and 5. And is just very unattractive. Why do people think she is hot? Bernadette and Amy are much more attractive.
She is false!V 61 Comments
The episodes with Priya are awful. She is so unlikable and not funny.
I don't like Priya. She wanted Leonard to stop hanging with Penny because she felt threatened by her, but she no sooner gets back to India and she automatically has sex with her ex-boyfriend while still with Leonard. She's a joke.
She didn't fit in. Her attitude stunk. I prefer the characters not so stuck up. I'm happy she is gone!
Her voice is so annoying to hear, yes even worse than Bernadette. She has a nasally sound which paired with her accent just sound horrible. Raj with an Indian accent sounds fine, but priya sounds like she needs to clear her nose or something. She also has an unlikable personality.V 21 Comments
In the past 2 years, Sheldon has become a snarky, arrogant, care-free guy who is very different than the version of Sheldon that made the show famous. He's not very entertaining anymore, because he is just a typical jerk now, instead of being the socially awkward scientific genius that he used to be. I understand that finding Amy could have caused him to mellow a bit, but I really wonder if Jim Parsons has lost the recipe for acting the Sheldon part.
This is a vote for the "New" Sheldon Cooper as worst, not the old version. Starting somewhere during Season 10, maybe as he got closer to Amy, he became even more narcissistic and arrogant. I don't like this version of Sheldon.
In this final Season 12, Sheldon is not adding much to the show. Maybe Jim Parsons is just going through the motions now. Not a funny guy anymore.
I'm surprise to see him so low down in the rankings. He's just the worst of all the characters. Maybe his antics were hilarious and even adorable at first but 8 seasons later and I just wish someone would shoot him already. He's 100% selfish and controls or seeks to control everyone around him. He tells his friends where to eat, when to eat, what to eat, degrades them constantly and deminishes their achievements. He thinks he's superior to everyone when he's achieved the least out of all his peers. Even Penny went on to have a successful career as a pharmaceutical salesrep. He's immature and childish and he needs help from a lot of people to do basic things like get to work or go to the dentist yet still he insults the very people who go out of their way to help him. He's ungrateful and takes advantage of everyone he can and he acts like he's compromising on things that should just be basic courtesies to another human being, much less his friends. He's narcissistic. Oh boy is he ever! ...moreV 33 Comments
Can't stand this character, I mean I know all the characters on the show have flaws, but with Stuart he has zero positives he's creepy, annoying, mooches off Howard's mom, hits on Amy the minute she's broken up with Sheldon
I hate Stuart a lot! I honestly like a lot of the characters and I was trying to think of one that I dislike. Then I saw this list and found Stuart. Then I remembed how much I hated him. I don't like it when he hangs out with the gang because he just doesn't fit. Like the Christmas party while Sheldon was away. Why did they invite stuart? Why did they even add Stuart in this episode?!
Also I hate how he has no respect of boundarys. He got close to raj and now it's like he's Raj's best friend. It's like Howard isn't even his best friend anymore! Also I was so mad about when Stuart moved in. I felt bad for Howard and the relationship between Howard's mom and Stuart just seems creepy. He shouldn't have put Howard's mom's furniture in his comic shop. That's just rude and werid...
Also he's so awkward and I don't like the depression and anxiety jokes with him...
I hate Stuart, end of story.
It hurts watching him.
Not because of his acting, or his character. It's just how the writers think the stuff he goes through is quote end quote "funny".
A few things: him alone at the cheesecake factory, his depression, the loneliness.
As someone who goes through all that, it's cruel making jokes about it all.
Depression is no joke, loneliness and anxiety aren't funny. Insensitive to people who actually live this kind of life.
I like Stuart, but the writers don't know what to do with his character. One minute he's strong & capable, the next he's falling apart and a mess. His character's never developed and will probably always be an after-thought. Sad.V 12 Comments
He is the lamest character of all who has no self respect at all. He is a man but gives impression of a girl with his hobbies and traits. After 4th season, big bang theory could have done better without him. It's the same self loathing mode on repeat in whatever screen time he gets. All other character's have developed as the show progressed but he is still the guy who is happy to be treated like a carpet. You can skip his scenes in the big bang theory and episodes would still make sense. Further he says so much factually incorrect things about India and passes it on as a bitter fact. It's like loathing himself was not enough so he needed to bring his country into it.
I just find him the most annoying character in this show, manipulative, ego driven, needy, jealous, plays the nice guy card while boasting to others, always doing something to sabotage himself... and at the end whining about his character faults. He thinks he is a hopeless romantic but he constantly dismisses women around him and uses them while trying to pretend he is sensitive. A total jackass
The guy is the definition of the creepy loser guy who is always trying to get with his friends' girlfriends while pretending to be sweet and understanding. Both Howard and Leonard should have dropped his ass after he tried to get with Bernadette and sleeping with Penny (a girl with her own insecurity issues, she really wasn't creep out after Raj pretty much took advantage of her drunk ass? I mean she was creep out by Howard's advances, but he never ever did something as half as creepy as Raj). I don't know what people can like about this character, he is pathetic and not a real friend to any of the characters on the show, nobody would be friends with him in real life after what he has pulled.

She's just so annoying. I can't stand her and I'm not quite sure how she's only number 10
Hated the way she was mean to Sheldon. Glad she's gone.
Hate the Leslie character. I avoid the episodes she's in. She's so pompous, annoying and has absolutely no appeal. She's so cruel to Sheldon, and She's the dumb-ass. So glad when she left.
She's the dumbass and not Sheldon!V 6 Comments
The way he talks and smiles at the same time..I hate it
Just too weird in my opinion he mocks people just because of their accent (cough cough Raj)! The way he tries to flirt with Penny is... This is debatable but let me just say in my opinion: JUST. SO. AWKWARD!
Hated his personality, he is just way to creepy number 1 worst character!V 33 Comments
A ginger boring airhead rubbish actress and the character is a waste of space
Emily is trying way to hard to fit into the show, but she is now friends with everyone for doing nothing. Every character got in the gang very easily and were not as annoying as her. She also yells at Raj for doing nothing! - LegoGeek21
Even Lucy was more likeable. Emily's kind of a b****. - truckturner
An interesting concept but overplayed. If they want to keep her around for some reason, Raj should break up with her which causes her to stalk him in increasingly ridiculous ways.V 10 Comments
This caracter is, maybe the worst one for me. I remember especially when she told Leonard that she had forgotten one of her earrings in one patient and had hidden the other before she ran away. She's so creepy!
In addition she behaves as if she were a fatal beauty, when she is very ugly.
So annoying. Glad she was a one-off character, because if she frequented the show, I would probably stop watching.
The absolute WORST.
Its his speech, hate it.
I think that Barry's a riot! His rivalry with Sheldon is hysterical and he's the perfect nemesis.
He just annoys me so much...I don't think he's funny at all
Annoying because she sucks
Worst T.V. character ever!
R.i.p., Mrs. Wolowitz.
This is an actress, not a character. - Cesium
Best looking woman on T.V.
Funny character. She and Raj's father are great. "Call the police in America! "
Sexiest milf ever!
I like her. I wish we could see more of her because she's a little better than Emily. She and penny are so alike and they should be friends. They are blonde, wrote/writing a screenplay and Claire was a bartender. She was SO pretty. please let's bring her back. I don't blame zack for having a crush on her.
No sense in Raj wasting his time with her. It won't work. - Cesium
I think she is absolutley lovely. Very funny. Terrific character, well acted.
Every time I see her It adds a breath of fresh air to an episode.
She was annoying and only liked people because of money.
