Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

  • Mindy Lahiri on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#11) Mindy Lahiri

    • The Mindy Project

    The Apartment:

    Mindy's one-bedroom apartment is a New York City gem with ample space and a lush boudoir. Mindy's place is decorated in a trendy and modern style, but is also feels lived-in and homey.

    The Income:

    The title character is a doctor, so her income (which would be around $200K a year) is substantial. But it'd be a struggle to stretch a doctor's paycheck to cover Mindy's shopping habits and abode. Her apartment would cost around $2.5 million to purchase.

  • Danny Tanner on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#7) Danny Tanner

    • Full House

    The House:

    Danny Tanner houses his entire immediate family, some of his extended family, and a friend in an enormous home in San Francisco, CA. The space has three bedrooms upstairs, a huge finished basement and attic, and a small living room alcove that also serves as Joey's bedroom. Oh, and the kitchen is massive, and there is a yard big enough for Comet, the Tanners' pooch, to run and play.

    The Income:

    Even with all the adults living in the house and, presumably, contributing to the mortgage, it would still be expensive. A similar home in the same Western Addition neighborhood sold a few years ago for nearly $2.9 million, creating a $14,000 mortgage. Danny hosts a morning talk show, Jesse is a musician, and Joey is a stand-up comic. Plus, they're raising three kids who come with expenses of their own.

  • Hannah Horvath on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#6) Hannah Horvath

    • Girls

    The Apartment:

    Hannah lives in a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn's trendy Greenpoint neighborhood. While the place isn't incredibly lavish, it's a palace by New York City standards. The living room is generous enough to fit sofas, chairs, and a television. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the bedrooms are of moderate size.

    The Income:

    A roommate (first Marnie, then Elijah) usually occupies the other bedroom in Hannah's apartment, but even with someone sharing the rent, the monthly expenses should put Hannah in the poorhouse – especially considering her erratic work history and the low-paying nature of many of her jobs. Seriously, she's a barista, public school teacher, and freelance writer. An average price for a similar apartment would be about $3,000 a month, meaning Hannah would have to make $60,000 a year to afford her half.

  • Kimmy Schmidt on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#10) Kimmy Schmidt

    • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    The Apartment:

    Kimmy and Titus share a one-bedroom basement apartment in Brooklyn, NY. Titus has the bedroom, and the title character sleeps in a closet. In the unit, there's a small kitchen, living area, and bathroom. Landlady Lillian calls the unit a "garden-level maisonette."

    The Income:

    The space is small and a bit dank, but still, it would demand a small fortune in New York City. A one-bedroom in that neighborhood usually calls for around $3,200 a month. Neither of those characters are consistently employed, and when they are, they don't rake in the dough. At one point, Kimmy works as an Uber driver; a median salary for a NYC Uber driver is around $3,700 a month. Assuming she's covering the rent (because Titus's full-time job is being Titus), that doesn't leave much left over.

  • Max Black on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#3) Max Black

    • 2 Broke Girls

    The Apartment:

    Max and Caroline's Williamsburg apartment is meant to look cheap, but it's clearly not. It's huge by New York City standards, even though Caroline sleeps in the living room. The place is always in a state of disarray, but even the clutter is strangely unrealistic. And there's a yard, which is incredibly rare and fiscally impossible. 

    The Income:

    The girls are supposed to be broke; they waitress at a local diner. However, a one-bedroom Williamsburg apartment is around $3,500 a month. Waitresses living on tips would struggle to afford that sort of rate.

  • Mia Dolan From 'La La Land' on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#5) Mia Dolan From 'La La Land'

    The Apartment:

    La La Land is meant to be at least somewhat unrealistic; the characters are dreamers and everyone spontaneously bursts into song. But the poshness of Mia's apartment exceeds the bounds of believability. The place appears to be a refurbished Old Hollywood flat with multiple bedrooms. The unit is impeccably decorated in bold colors, expensive furnishings, and wall murals.

    The Income:

    For most of the movie, Mia is a barista and struggling actress. Roughly estimating, she takes home about $16,000 a year. The rent for a stylish four-bedroom unit in Los Angeles, CA, would be around $6,000, though. Split four ways, that's $1,500 each. And Mia only makes $1,333 a month.
