* ''Series/ModernFamily'' has Alex, who explicitly states in the first few episodes that she's not as pretty as her sister Haley. In reality, she was ''definitely'' as pretty as Haley. [[BuxomIsBetter Then she hit puberty.]] Since then they've been stuffing her into frumpy sweaters to hide her curves and even gave her a much less flattering pair of glasses with thicker rims. This has, naturally, done nothing to slow down her fanboys.

* ''Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'': The beauty and shapely figure of [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis- Dreyfus]] is ignored by the people around her, even though her wardrobe often shows off what one would consider damn fine assets.

Added DiffLines:

*** Both cases seem to be more of an example of extremely ugly ''personalities'', with Lilith seeming very cold and uncaring and Bebe hovering between cloying supplicant and ruthless she-devil.

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': While the characters vary considerably in their stated levels of attractiveness, the actors playing them are never ugly.

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': While the characters vary considerably in their stated levels of attractiveness, the actors playing them are never ugly. They are, however, portrayed as shameless nerds, horrible dressers, and with unflattering hairstyles. If you want to see how they can look better, check out [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/df/e2/10/dfe2100195b1c74cf591276b96c317a1.jpg some of the]] [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/ed/9f/48/ed9f48d9170425c6eecdbd83bbff8344.jpg later photo shoots]].


Added DiffLines:

** To be fair, in earlier comics, the younger Luann '''was''' drawn very plainly. She grew up nice, but tends to retain a bit of UglyDuckling Syndrome.

Added DiffLines:

** They don't really go out of their way to make her "ugly", but merely extremely nerdy and uncaring about her appearance - no makeup, thick glasses, overbite, mousy hair, and unflattering clothes. Once she starts gaining confidence, she works on all these and her beauty shines through.

** [[GenkiGirl Rachel Berry]] is supposedly less attractive than [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders Quinn Fabray]]. Now, Quinn's actress, Dianna Agron, is a cute girl, but Rachel's played by [[http://www.jasonthegleek.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Lea-Michele-Loreal-Paris-Ads-1.jpeg Lea Michele]]. In one episode, Finn describes Rachel has having "a smoking hot body... if you don't like boobs." Rachel is noticeably much, much curvier than Quinn. In an [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/tv/la-en-lea-michele2-2009dec02,0,6625011.story interview]] with the actress she mentions how the character is not supposed to be seen as attractive in the show. Once she [[ImportantHaircut got bangs]], started wearing more flattering clothing, and became more friendly with the glee club, the show stopped being shy about the fact that she's beautiful.

* ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'': Mellie, played by the actress Miracle Laurie, complains that she's pudgy and can't get dates because she lives in LA and has to compete with all the girls that ''aren't''. Her love interest doesn't care, and neither does the audience, because despite being a few pounds overweight, she's still kinda cute. [[spoiler: Later exploited when it is revealed that she is a planted agent with a timid personality specifically designed to ensnare her target.]]
