Caroline Wesbox Channing, portrayed by Beth Behrs, is one of the two main characters of 2 Broke Girls, along with her friend Max Black.

BiographyEdit

Caroline is the opposite of Max; she's sophisticated and comes from a wealthy background. Caroline is forced into waitressing and doing occasional odd jobs after her home and all her money is taken when the government finds out that her father, Martin Channing, is involved in a Ponzi Scheme and apparently stole everyone's money.

She becomes friends with Max and decides to create a cupcake business when she finds out that although Max can bake delicious cupcakes, she doesn't really see how much she could sell it for. Caroline comes up with the idea of starting a cupcake business with Max but they need $250,000 to begin it, which is the main objective of the two girls in the series.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Caroline is average height with long, straight light blonde hair, and blue eyes. She is also very slender. Due to her upbringing, she is very stylish and used to wear designer clothing. She has altered her diner uniform to make it fit better on her figure, and despite working at a restaurant, she still wears her favorite (or maybe the only one) pearl necklace and a metal belt around the apron. The current wardrobe collection that she has is whatever she grabbed from her townhouse before it was put on lock down, though she admitted that she grabbed 'all the wrong things'.

Later on in "And Strokes of Goodwill" episode, she found and bought back her old $800 designer shoes at Goodwill for $8, which made her cry at first, because it reminded her how much she's been 'reduced'. In "And The Rich People Problem", Caroline brought Max along to break into her old townhouse so she could take her retainers from her closet bathroom and eventually, try to take as much designer clothes "with a price tag on it that [they] can resell or that [they] think she'd look amazing in."

Personality and TraitsEdit

Caroline is a perky, charismatic young woman and, unlike the stereotypical idea of blondes, she is quite intelligent and business-savvy with a degree from Wharton Business School, although sometimes she does have her blonde moments. She isn't skilled in house-keeping, but apparently knowledgeable about bringing people back from overdose. She is also shown to be able to speak French and Japanese.

Caroline wishes to be on everyone's good side and tries to be nice to most people but still has enemies, mainly because of her father's scandal. She gradually becomes a little tougher and street-smart after living with Max. She is mature enough that she can handle Max whenever she throws her childish tempers. She's also a very depressing stoner.

FamilyEdit

Caroline's father loves her very dearly (so far as to get her a horse for her first period) but since he was put in jail, she became frustrated by how much she misses him and how other people never consider his good side. Caroline's mother cheated on Martin when she was only five years old, so her grandmother got rid of her and all photos of her (in the "society" way), which led to Caroline being raised by two nannies in her earlier years. In season two, she started dating Andy. They broke up in And the Bear Truth.

  • She has a pink tazer which she sleeps with.
  • Max has caught her masturbating with the spray nozzle in their bathtub 3 times. Once was in And The Candy Manwich.
  • The reason she and Andy broke up was, because she was paying too much attention to the cupcake business that she and Max are trying to operate and too little attention to Andy, who was then her boyfriend.
  • In high school, she played Fantine in Les Misérables.
