Slide 1 of 4 | View On One Page

Friday Night Light‘s had it’s fair share of intense and intriguing love stories that had many fans wishing the actors were together in real life. In fact a major part of the reason why the show was a critical success, despite not having a large audience, is because it was so realistic, and made you believe the stories and lives of the characters in a football town in Middle America. Even though much of the show revolved around a few ongoing and major relationships, there were deviations, break-ups and even just hints that a potential couple may be in the works which resulted in quite a few odd pairings. Regardless of how good the actors were or interesting their storyline was, Friday Night Lights had a few couples, flings and hook-ups with absolutely no chemistry resulting in some cringe-worthy or exasperating moments. Check out Friday Night Light‘s 8 Worst Chemistry Couples.

8. Tim Riggins and Becky Sproles

This is one of the couples that never happened but was hinted at and dragged through over the course of way too many episodes and was enough for fans to know it could never happen. Although Tim was a well known ladies man, and Becky was definitely pretty, he knew better than to go for a high school girl and he had already slept with her mother. Regardless, Becky constantly tried to flirt with Tim and the results were nothing short of awkward as he had to turn her down every single time, and had to be careful that his intentions did not get misconstrued all the times he had to come to her aid. Their friendship ended up being pretty cute, but there was absolutely no romantic chemistry between the two that made anyone wish it was actually going to happen.

7. Tami Taylor and Glen

Again, Tami Taylor and her co-worker Glenn were never a couple, but yet again there was a lot of unreturned flirting and a shocking and cringe-worthy kiss. The intrigue of the relationship between Tami and Eric Taylor prevailed without the usual sub plots of infidelity, mistrust or unrequited love; however, the show did play at the hint that these things happen when it came to Tami Taylor and Glenn, a counselor at West Dillon High. A few episodes at included Tami feeling distance between herself and Eric because of his busy schedule and constant distractions dealing with his team, something Glenn must have picked up on when he planted an unwanted kiss on Tami. While many shows might just include a story of an affair when a wife feels neglected, not Friday Night Lights, and not Tami Taylor. It was clear there was no mutual attraction between her and Glenn from her side, and just that one kiss was enough to make fans’ cringe.
