“Penny’s Worst Boyfriend on The Big Bang Theory,,”

“The Big Bang Theory” will go down in history as one of the nerdier sitcoms. However, like most television comedies about characters navigating life, careers, and love, the show embraced romantic storylines throughout its 12-season run on CBS. During that time, audiences witnessed love blossom between some unlikely couples, including Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), as well as Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette Rostenkowski (Melissa Rauch). That said, the romantic pairing of Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) was arguably the best of the bunch — even if they were prone to the occasional breakup.

That said, it took Penny a minute to realize that Leonard was the one she wanted to be with. Before settling down with the experimental physicist, she dated several guys who were easy on the eyes but terrible in most other ways. Some of Penny’s love interests were jerks at the end of the day, making viewers wonder what she saw in them. But which one of Penny’s boyfriends on “The Big Bang Theory” was the worst of the worst?

On The Big Bang Theory, Kurt was Penny’s worst boyfriend.

Kurt (Brian Patrick Wade) and Penny had an on-again, off-again relationship for years on “The Big Bang Theory.” Despite his evident physical qualities, it isn’t easy to decipher what she saw in him. For a start, he was a bully who took her money and belongings. And if that wasn’t bad enough, he also enjoyed picking on people, with Leonard often being on the receiving end of his harassment.
When Kurt was first introduced during the pilot episode of “The Big Bang Theory,” he and Penny had just gone through a dramatic breakup. She didn’t want to face him, so Sheldon and Leonard visited him to retrieve her stuff. Their mission was unsuccessful, however, as Kurt used his hulking physique to intimidate the scientists into removing their pants.
Kurt returned to attend Penny’s Halloween party in Season 1, only to subject Leonard to more humiliation. While this leads to Penny breaking up with the bully and into Leonard’s arms, it’s further established that Kurt was terrible news from the start. This wasn’t the last chance she gave him either, as it was later revealed that he owed her $1800, and it took him a while to pay it back. Any redeemable qualities Penny saw in him behind closed doors were never made apparent, so we can only assume that he was downright terrible in every capacity.
