10. Annie Edison - Community

Annieedison Most of our readers will probably disagree with me on this one, especially since she is the only character to have a monkey named after a part of her anatomy. However, in the first season of Community Annie's innate sexual appeal is obscured by her conservative fashion sense and over-achieving nature. Of course the show's writers are well aware of Annie's viewer appeal, as evidenced by her numerous gif-able moments. However, although the students of Greendale acknowledge Annie's attractiveness, no one acts on it. Early in the show, Troy practically pretends that Annie doesn't exist despite her obvious attraction to him and no other student ever makes a pass at her; save for the tiny nippled hippy, Vaughn. If I were a student at Greendale, you can bet that I'd be following Annie around like a puppy dog.
