In the land of TV, ugliness rarely actually looks like ugliness. Even characters who are supposed to be utterly disgusting compared to their costars are equally attractive. For whatever reason, Hollywood has no idea what "ugly" really looks like.
Betty Suarez, 'Ugly Betty'
If America Ferrera is ugly, what hope is there for the rest of us? Click through to see more "ugly" TV characters that aren't actually ugly!
Chandler and Ross, 'Friends'
Um, I would! Ross and Chandler are both very attractive men with successful careers who seem like perfectly good choices to me. So why are they constantly degraded as being nerdy, ugly, fat, or generally repulsive to the opposite sex?
Obviously that isn't the case, and it's backed up by the fact that they easily land the stunningly beautiful Rachel and Monica. Anyone who thinks these two gents are anything less than studly are simply nuts.
Rachel Berry 'Glee'
So what? She's played by Lea Michele! You could dress her in a garbage bag and she'd still be more beautiful than 90% of the female population.
Carlton Banks 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'
By today's fashion standards, Carlton was the good-looking one! Will, on the other hand, dressed like a middle schooler. Let me be the first to say it: Carlton Banks, you were always a handsome guy!
Alex Dunphy, 'Modern Family'
Oh wait. She's a gorgeous teenage girl who happens to be smart and wear glasses. Why exactly are we supposed to think she's ugly? I don't get it.
Liz Lemon '30 Rock'
There is no way anyone found Lemon's "ugliness" believable. She managed to land the gorgeous James Marsden, so how ugly could she possibly be?
Max Blum 'Happy Endings'
As you can see in this photo, the man is far from morbidly obese. Sure, he's not a waif-thin supermodel; he's got some meat on his bones, as most men do. But he's much more attractive than the "chubby" rhetoric gives him credit for. Cut the guy some slack!
Grace Adler 'Will and Grace'
First of all, Debra Messing is mega-thin. Secondly, she's gorgeous! The idea of her character being anything less than stunning is simply outrageous. Karen, you are one crazy chick.
The Cast of 'The Big Bang Theory'
Sheldon and Raj are both absolutely adorable, on screen and off.
Bernadette is quite a looker; even the biggest, thickest pair of glasses can't hide that!
Leonard's a pretty handsome guy; how else do you think he managed to date a girl like Penny?
Amy and Howard are slightly more believable, but only because they have such awkward body language.
Topanga Lawrence 'Boy Meets World'
Even with her crazy hair and over-the-top hippie persona, she was still the most beautiful girl in class. And later, when Eric easily convinced her to go on a diet, even he later admitted that she was hot all along!
People would have to be crazy to disagree.
