The TV world is filled with fantasies — and its couples are no exceptions. Do you ever wonder how certain guys could have ended up with women who are way out of their league? Or how two people with absolutely nothing in common are suddenly soul mates on their show? We understand that sometimes a show needs some new energy and momentum to get through a long season, but these weird romantic matches can be a little unbelievable. Here are our picks for the 9 most mismatched couples on TV:
9. Don Draper and Megan (Mad Men)
Megan is quite a bit younger than her boss, Don Draper — but given how handsome and charming Don can be, we don’t think it’s totally crazy that Megan would go for this guy. Still, their romance was doomed from the start. After seeing Megan be a sweet and patient stepmother to his children, Don had a crazy notion that he could slide into some idyllic perfect marriage. Um, Don, have you met you? From the get-go, Don was unable to be a supportive husband as Megan pursued a career in the impractical, soul-crushing and competitive world of acting. Much of their marriage consisted of phone calls from Los Angeles to New York, and when Don went to visit Megan in California, he stuck out like a sore thumb in his Madison Avenue suit. Megan and Don were doomed from the start.
