Occupation: Waitress at The Cheesecake Factory.
From: Omaha, Nebraska.
After splitting up with her boyfriend of four years, Kurt, she moved into the apartment across from Leonard & Sheldon. She is writing a screenplay about a girl from Lincoln, Nebraska, who moves to California to become an actress but instead ends up working as a waitress. Auto-biographical you say? Well, no! See, Penny is from Omaha.
What she lacks in academic intellect, she makes up for in good looks and common sense, frequently being the sane voice in the group.
Penny was embarrassed to learn that exciting details of her love life had been posted on the Internet, revealing she once had passionate kissing in a Subway (the sandwich shop!).
