    Posted: September 18 2010 at 20:47
The poll is simple, who of the four main characters of the show appear to be the worse human being? 

You first got Jerry whose questionable behavior includes breaking up with no remorse with women over the slightest flaws and his consistent indifference (or even enjoyment) over his friends' misery (like George). Also very obsessive, quite selfish. 

George's negative traits that make him hilarious include selfishness (mainly with money), laziness, outrageous dishonesty ("come on ... my father's gay), and extreme impulsiveness. 

Elaine Benes: Extremely superficial (e.g. dating a guy solely for his good-looks then dumping him because he scarred his face), laughs at friends, selfish tendencies, fakes it, etc

Cosmo Kramer: sometimes shallow, occasionally breaks the law, uses Jerry's apartment without consent, brutal honesty issues,

Jerry's not so bad.  He bought his Dad a Caddie. 

And that's the only thing I could think of.  You're right.  Jerry.

Love that show!

Honestly, it's Jerry.
None of them (except Kramer perhaps) are really likable, as real people, but Jerry is the most despicable!

My first impulse upon reading the topic title was George. But then I read your accurate assessments of the characters, and I had to think a minute. They're all horrible people. George is handicapped as a short, stocky, bald man; Cosmo is mentally imbalanced; and Jerry has some good qualities (despises stealing, for example). But Elaine doesn't really have a good reason to be so despicable.

^ Yep but more importantly I don't think she's remotely funny and merely serves
to 'rip my knitting' grievously.

Gotta be George for the fire at the birthday party incident where he knocked over women and kids trying to escape. But he's still my favorite.

George but at least has a reason to be despicable, he's short, he has shy hair, not very succesfull and suffers from terrible parents.

When speaking of actors it's easily Michael Richards. Love the show but can't watch it the same way after his horrible racist f**k-up.

I love he show. I own all seasons on DVD and have watched every single episode... The peak of comedy in TV...

When I saw the topic I thought "george of course," but after reading your post and thinking about it I'm not so sure.  They all do some terrible things but also have redeeming moments

George. Ok Jerry is bad too, and Elaine. But George pretending to be handicapped and the thing with the foundation for his dead fiance. Hilariously horrible.

Let's remember when someone yelled fire and he pushed the old lady aside as he was running away from danger..

I love George. No way I can vote for him. I'll vote for Jerry, because he enjoys watching horrible things happen to his friends and laughing at them.

George gave a security guard a chair because he felt bad for him having to stand up all day. You know that deep down he must have a good heart.

Say Vandelay!

George for me. Come on, dude, if only he'd put as much energy into finding a job than into faking a job.

And trying to get a date right after his fiancée died?

And because of that Tongue
