Portrayer Beth Behrs

Caroline Wesbox Channing, (born May 28, 1987), portrayed by Beth Behrs, is one of the two main characters of 2 Broke Girls, along with her best friend Max Black.


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 investors' 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 Appearance[]

Caroline is a tall, extremely attractive and beautiful young woman with blond hair and blue eyes. In the first few seasons, she wore her hair long and straight with a fringe, but later cuts it into a stylish bob. She has very slender legs and has small breasts, which Max repeatedly points out with snide remarks. Due to her upbringing, she is very stylish and used to wearing designer clothing. Caroline 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 lockdown, though she admitted that she grabbed 'all the wrong things'. She is also called Barbie by Oleg in the pilot. 

Later on in "And Strokes of Goodwill", 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 Problems", 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 many designer clothes "with a price tag on it that [they] can resell or that [they] think she'd look amazing in."

Personality and Traits[]

As the foil to Max, Caroline is a perky, cheerful, notably bubbly, charismatic young woman. Despite what her bubbly disposition may suggest, Caroline is actually an extremely intelligent and educated woman, having gotten excellent grades during her time in school and serving as valedictorian. She is knowledgeable in business and finance, using her skills to help grow Max's Homemade Cupcakes and also help the diner gang with their taxes. She is much more driven than Max, being the one to come up with the idea for starting a cupcake business and becoming the main driving force in making sure that their business gets off the ground thanks to her book smarts and talents in sales.

While academically inclined, Caroline lacks Max's street smarts and is quite meddlesome. While Max prefers to stay out of other people's business, Caroline often meddles and while she usually does so with good intentions, it usually ends poorly due to her saying the wrong things, or not fully understanding the situation before jumping in.


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. Throughout the series, Caroline is often referred to as being a part of the Diner Family. Although they make fun of her, they will do anything for Caroline.
