30 Day Love Meme, Day 10  
I didn't really like the original question (Why aren’t these two married in real life?) because frankly it didn't make sense, actors are actors and their character are characters so I don't really see how that works together. Just because two actors have chemistry, or their relationship is written well on-screen means they should be married in real life. Just weird. So, I went with the opposite of Day 09.

Day 10 - The least believable relationship?

Leonard and Penny (Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco), The Big Bang Theory

I've ranted about these two so often, my brain is going to fall out when thinking of them. I'm not saying that they have to be this terrible. Yes, I don't think that Galecki and Cuoco have an ounce of romantic/sexual onscreen chemistry, but if the writing was better for the pair, I'd be fine with them. But it's not. The only reason we've ever been given as to why Leonard wants Penny (and dated her) is because she's hot and he liked having regular sex with a hot blonde. (He pretty much said that three separate times while they were dating.) And the only reason Penny was with him was because ... I have no flippin' clue. He treats her as badly emotionally, making fun of her intelligence, and disregarding her feelings as all of her lunky boyfriends in the past. So, yeah, I don't know. I have no clue why she likes him. And the idea that she's secretly in love with him just boggles my mind.

Ugh!

Day 01 - What is your current favourite ship?
Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?
Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?
Day 06 - Best kiss?
Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?
Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage
Day 09 - The most believable relationship?

Ugh, these two. It kind of blows my mind that they were secretly dating for a long time, though not all real life pairings have romantic or sexual chemistry on-screen. Leonard is just such a whiny dick. In principle I don't mind them having an asshole geek character, because those dudes are so prevalent in real life but not really represented as much on-screen (the geek is always the "nice guys finish last" dude). I just wish the show didn't try and make me sympathize with him. I do not.

It doesn't surprise me as much as I thought I'd be, mainly because when I heard the rumors it made sense of the complete blindness that everyone has (including these two, and you know the cast/crew they were around all the time suspected) about Leonard and Penny. I think they saw the "cute" of the real-life duo and thought it applied to the awful L/P. Ugh! It's really the only thing that makes sense. :shrugs:

Nope; he's too much of an ass.
