Why Bernadette Was The-Worst In The Big Bang Theory

From September 2007 to the show’s ending in May 2019, CBS broadcast the enduring but dubious “Big Bang Theory,” giving television viewers a fresh take on the classic sitcom. Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady’s series put the attention on those who rarely get a say in most high-budget productions: geeks, instead of focusing on families or coworkers. In doing so, “Big Bang” popularised being a geek and embracing whatever facets of popular culture, general entertainment, and science called to you through a diverse cast of endearing characters.
Sheldon Cooper, played by Jim Parsons, and Leonard Hofstadter, played by Johnny Galecki, were perhaps the show’s stars. Alongside them were Leonard’s future wife, Penny Teller, Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Rajesh “Raj” Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), and (Kaley Cuoco). Amy Farrah Fowler, played by Mayim Bialik, later entered into an unusual but happy relationship with Sheldon, and Bernadette Rostenkowski, played by Melissa Rauch, was after a cast member. With Howard, she later married and had a family, giving birth to Halley and Neil.

Bernadette was a fantastic friend, wife, scientist, and mother, as we often saw on “The Big Bang Theory.” Her personality did have one significant flaw, though, and it never hesitated to show itself.

No one was safe from Bernadette’s temper.

At her core, Bernadette was a mild-mannered, kind person who wished for the happiness of people around her as much as she wanted for her own. However, she didn’t always show these qualities, particularly in competitive circumstances, no matter how minor. She would suddenly become a persistent and unrepentantly harsh person, frequently hurling insults at everyone in her path. Even Howard couldn’t escape her rage; more often than he probably wanted to, he found himself on the receiving end of his wife’s hatred.

Despite this, Bernadette’s quick temper didn’t always result in her targeting only her pals. She could also channel her fierce energy to fend off anyone who disrespected the people she cares about in front of her, protecting them in the process. As noted by Screen Rant, she stood up to Sheldon for bullying Howard and even defended Stuart (Kevin Sussman) from bullying the owner of a rival comic book business. She comes across as a quiet, laid-back young lady, so they don’t expect it, which makes these specific instances funny since they don’t.

When angered, Bernadette could transform into a fearsome force that verbally attacked anybody who got in her way. That is not the best quality to have, but it is helped by the fact that she frequently uses it to stand up for the people she loves. Only when her loved ones were on the receiving end of her contempt did it become an issue.

Bernadette knew how to go for the jugular.

In The Big Bang Theory, Fight-like behavior is one thing. It’s one thing to become so fixated on something that you denigrate the person you love most in the world. Season 12, Episode 9, “The Citation Negation,” would be the episode that most captured Bernadette’s competitive attitude. In this episode, Howard and Raj develop an obsession with the smash-hit video game “Fortnite.” It’s only that Bernadette isn’t very good at the game, which prevents her from joining in on the fun. Denise (Lauren Lapkus) is brought in to teach her the ins and outs of “Fortnite”. But no matter how hard she tries, she cannot surpass her husband’s skill level. Bernadette’s character is swiftly killed by Howard, to which she retorts, “I make more money than you!”

The strange thing is that Howard never teased her for playing poorly in Fortnite. He was also okay with letting her play the game for a while so she could experience it for herself. She wouldn’t let Howard and Raj share a fun activity because of her competitive nature. When she didn’t succeed at being the best at it. She had to find another means to prove her supremacy to her husband.

Of course, we’re probably examining this personality feature too closely. Whatever your opinion of Bernadette, you have to acknowledge Melissa Rauch’s portrayal is unmatched, even if it occasionally made the character likable. It’s all meant to be funny.
