'Big Bang' scoop: Sheldon's perfect match is... Blossom!

Posted on

As I first teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello, Bialik’s character, Victoria, gets paired with Sheldon on an eHarmony-type matchmaking service — and with good reason. She’s described as the female version of Jim Parson’s theoretical physicist.

Bialik, who has a recurring role as the high school guidance counselor on The Secret Life of the American teenager, will appear in Big Bang‘s May 24 season finale and could return next season in a recurring capacity.

The casting comes amid a flurry of female activity for Sheldon. As I reported earlier this week, Judy Greer will “spend the night” with him in early May.

Thoughts? Kind of fitting that Sheldon’s first potential love interest would be Blossom, no? And is this proof that exec producer Chuck Lorre has reconsidered creating a third gender for him? Sound off below!
