in the series falls in love with the dumbest character in the series
Many will wonder what they see in eachother
, or suspect one of them is using the other.

, due to the Popularity Food Chain
Most often, he
will be the smart one, have thick, ugly glasses
, won't be able to tell his love interest his feelings without turning into a pile of stuttering goo

, and is usually
versions due exist, with the ditzy one being a jockish
yet still sweet guy
while she is a Hollywood Nerd
with an "average
" appearance, but most of the above tropes from the male example still applying. She may be the subject of a The Makeover
, going from Geek To Chic

Contrast Model Couple
. Compare Give Geeks a Chance
, Ugly Guy, Hot Wife
, Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl
and Perky Female Minion
. Such pairings can be justified since Opposites Attract
