The Office: You'll Never Get 100% On This Ryan Howard Quiz

How well do you know Dunder Mifflin's biggest trainwreck?


There's no other character in The Office quite like Ryan Howard, the office temp who gets promoted far past his station, leading to him growing a planet-sized ego and eventually ended up in handcuffs.

There is certainly a relatability to Ryan in the early days - the apathetic low-level employee who has little interest in his job or the people in it, but of course, Ryan evolved to become a douchebag of the highest order.

Beyond his run-in with the law, Ryan's infuriating self-interest and tendency to have drama gravitate towards him made him one of the show's most contemptible figures, to say nothing of his dumpster fire of a relationship with Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling).

Ryan was nevertheless a prime source of entertainment thanks to the sharp writing and B.J. Novak's terrific performance, but from his unassuming debut through to his shocking act in the show's series finale, just how well do you really know Ryan Howard?

No matter how you do, the answers are at the end as ever, so good luck!
