The "Are You the One?" crew hasn't had it easy: their track record is less than stellar, they just endured a mind-blowing Match-Up ceremony and there have been plenty of tears along the way. But through it all, the feisty Ellie Puckett has provided some much-needed laughs -- and a whole lot of sass.
We’ll admit it: We fell head over heels for the Southern gal the minute she opened her trap on that very first day in Puerto Rico. So, to honor the lovable brunette, we're comparing her to some equally endearing ladies from the small screen. Here's what Ellie has in common with them:
She's a scene-stealer, just like Lucy Ricardo on "I Love Lucy"
Ellie always grabs the spotlight, much like the fiery redhead portrayed by Lucille Ball. And after a few cocktails, she sounds just like Lucy did after downing a bottle of the "health tonic" Vitameatavegamin.
She doesn't hold anything back, just like Gloria Pritchett on "Modern Family"
Sofia Vergara's character and Ellie are the queens of priceless quips, and they also rule their respective households.
She sounds juuuuust like Joy Turner on "My Name Is Earl"
And who doesn't love a Southern drawl a la Jaime Pressly?
She's a good pal, just like Kimmy Gibbler on "Full House"
DJ's bestie (played by Andrea Barber) was an honorary member of the Tanner family, and Ellie is just as tight with her "AYTO" crew.
She's a guy's girl, just like Joan Holloway on "Mad Men"
The buxom queen bee of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (Christina Hendricks IRL) can hang tough with all the dudes. And Ellie has no problem doing the same -- especially when it comes to her current crush Anthony.
She's fearless, just like Daenerys Targaryen on "Game of Thrones"
E isn't seeking the Iron Throne, and she doesn't have three dragons at her disposal like Emilia Clarke's character, but she still gives her all during competitions. Case in point: her fierce commitment during that ice challenge. All hail the great Khaleesi Ellie!
She's so damn charming, just like Rachel Green on "Friends"
The two share an obvious appeal, plus Jennifer Aniston and our girl would probably make amazing BFFs -- if we could only orchestrate a meeting between the two. Sing it with us now: “I’ll be there for you..."
+ Who do you think Ellie is most like? Let us know your thoughts, and be sure to catch a new episode of "Are You the One?" on Monday at 10/9c.
