Back when these TV characters were some of the nerdiest guys and gals on air, didn't you feel like you would NEVER date any of them? Well have you taken a gander at them lately? These wallflowers are suddenly the life of the party and maybe, just maybe, they'd give you time of day (if you asked nicely of course!) Here are the nerdiest group of the 90's. How many of these shows did you watch? Would you date them now?

'Dancing With The Stars': Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins For Top Spot

May 1st, 2012 9:40am EDT
Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins
The Motown Celebration ended with the “Empress of Soul,” making her exit, which left seven of the stars to battle it out for the seventh week in the ballroom. Now you would think that since it was classical week the intensity and fire would burn out, but things seem to get hotter with Maria and Derek and the steamy shirtless team pose doble dance. I don’t know what it was, but the pose doble ruled the night.

The night started off with a performance by award winning violinist and throughout the evening we had the pleasure of hearing the lovely voice of 12-year-old classical singer, Jackie ...

Maria Menounos DWTW
Last night marked the halfway point of season 14, and the stars came one by one heating up the floor with their sexy moves for Latin Week. For the shows steamiest week, the contestants had the option to either dance to the samba, salsa or Argentine tango.

Carlos Santana was the performer for the night and kept things hot, with the sultry sounds from his guitar. The evening filled with energetic performances was amazing, and I can say one of the best nights of the competition.

My favorite performance of the evening was by William. As for my least favorite, it would have to be Gavin. Here...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Elimination Not A Surprise

Martina Navratilova Eliminated on DWTS
After a killer kick off and week two’s struggles with the quickstep and jive, the stars gathered to find out who would be the first in the competition to go home. What a night! And I would say one of the most nerve-wracking. Especially since one of the contestants would be eliminated without having the opportunity to prove what they really could do on the dance floor.

However Sugarland helped ease the tension with their country tunes; and one by one contestants were told if they would be safe or placed in the bottom. The scores going into the elimination were the following in ranking orde...

Reality is not always a factor when it comes to TV relationships. Actually, it usually isn't. Often, two characters that would never come together in real life are forced into a relationship for any number of reasons. It's not really a problem for most TV viewers because they understand that entertainment value will always trump reality.

That being said, there are some on-screen relationships that make perfect sense. Then there are the head scratchers. Below is a sampling of the latter. Please note, just because these relationships are unrealistic doesn't necessarily mean they ...
