One of the best ideas to come out of television in the late eighties, the brilliance behind the TGIF lineup was pretty clear. A night in television that had always disappointed since many people go out on Fridays, the plan to air a bunch of family-friendly programming then made a lot of sense. After all, a lot of the people that do stay home on that night of the week are parents or their young children, so providing content they can all enjoy together is a great move. The home of a lot of beloved programming, the series that made up this block over the years also featured a lot of talented young people that would end up becoming very attractive. Realizing that is what inspired us to put together this list of twenty stars that prove the TGIF lineup was filled with future hotties.
In order for someone to be up for possible inclusion on this list, he/she first and foremost needs to have been a main cast member of a show that was a part of ABC’s TGIF lineup when it was airing. It doesn’t matter which iteration of that block of programming we are looking at as it was a part of television on separate occasions over the years. Furthermore, someone doesn’t need to have been considered the lead of any of the series that aired in the block as long as he/she was at least considered a regular. Aside from that, we looked at the way that celeb looked when he/she was on the show in question and decided if he/she had what it took to be a future hottie or, in some cases, if she did become one.
20 Rachel Blanchard - Clueless
A very popular film that more than quadrupled its budget at the box office, the movie Clueless was a hit and its star, Alicia Silverstone, who was quite popular at the time, was a huge part of that. However, when the decision was made to adapt the story for television, its star wasn’t interested so they needed to find someone that could take over the part, which was no easy task. Thankfully, they found Rachel Blanchard and she did a marvelous job at staying in tune with the character as fans already knew while also making it her own. Someone that turned twenty the same year the series that landed her on this list debuted, today, she is forty-one years old and she proves that aging can do a body good, at least visually.
19 Megan Park - The Neighbors
An actor in search of a project that is worthy of her skills and understands how to use her properly, Megan Park is a very talented performer that can come off as sticky sweet with the greatest of ease. However, solely focusing on that is a mistake as her greatest attribute is her ability to play off that perception. So when she does something dastardly, it is a real punch to the stomach. A part of this list due to playing a part in the very short-lived series The Neighbors, people may not remember that show but it is hard to forget how lovely Megan looks. An angelic blonde with smoldering eyes and a tight body, when looking at her, we can’t see any flaws at all.
18 Candace Cameron Bure – Full House
One of the most family-friendly sitcoms to ever exist, when putting together the concept of the TGIF lineup, it seemed like no show fit it any better than Full House did. A saccharine series that wraps up in half an hour and usually featured big moments of catharsis and hugs at the end of each episode, in a lot of ways, it was the stereotype of the overly simplified sitcom. Beloved by millions of people, it focused on a very tight-knit family with three daughters, the eldest of which was played by Candace Cameron Bure throughout its entire eight-season run. Back in the spotlight as the star of Fuller House, a spin-off from the show that made her a star, that has allowed people to remember how appealing to the eye she is to this day.
17 Soleil Moon Frye - Sabrina The Teenage Witch
Already a long-standing star by the time she had anything to do with the TGIF lineup, Soleil Moon Frye was a former child star that played the titular character in the sitcom Punky Brewster. Years later added to a sitcom from this programming block called Sabrina the Teenage Witch, in it, she played the powerless roommate of the titular character during her time in college. Twenty-four at the time she took on the role that qualifies her for this list, these days, she is a forty-one-year-old that also has four kids. She clearly still works hard on her body as she looks absolutely appealing in a photo like this one taken shortly after the birth of her final kid to date and where she only has swimwear on.
16 Melissa Joan Hart - Sabrina The Teenage Witch
From one actor from Sabrina the Teenage Witch to another, this time around, we’re going from someone that appeared in the latter seasons to the person that played the series’ titular character. A series that ran from 1996 until 2003, it aired during the TGIF programming block for many of those years and could easily be called a staple of it. Continuing to act to this day, Melissa Joan Hart is a talented and lovable actor that has gone on to be seen in shows like Melissa & Joey or movies including Holiday in Handcuffs or God's Not Dead 2. In her early twenties during much of her time on the show that earned her a place on this list, Melissa is forty-one years old today as well and is a beautiful and buxom blonde.
15 Eliza Coupe – Happy Endings
An actor that has co-starred with some incredibly gorgeous women during her career, largely due to that fact it seems as though Eliza Coupe doesn’t get nearly enough credit for her looks. One of the stars of Happy Endings, a sitcom with a loyal cult following, many people were sad when she and her co-stars were fired after this show that was briefly a part of TGIF was canceled. Previously a star of another beloved show called Scrubs, in recent years, she has gone on to star in the series Quantico which she is a part of to this day. Someone who we find very attractive due to the confident way in which she often carries herself, now that she is thirty-six years old, she even more so seems like she knows what she is doing in bed.
14 Trina McGee – Boy Meets World
Without a doubt one of the shows that is thought of first when the TGIF concept is brought up today, Boy Meets World is a sitcom that a generation of kids have attached themselves to. Most associated with the people who played a part in the family at the center of the show and a pair of kids that were very close to the character Cory, at times, some stars of the show are forgotten. One of those people is Trina McGee who played Angela Moore, the love interest of Rider Strong’s character, Shawn, throughout the final seasons of the show. Forty-eight years old today, after the show that made her a star went away, she continued to get more beautiful which should be quite clear when looking at an image like this one.
13 Elisa Donovan - Clueless
A supporting member of the cast that made the success of the film Clueless possible, Elisa Donovan’s character, Amber Mariens, was not a huge part of its story so forgetting her part in it is understandable. However, the following year, when the powers that be opted to adapt that story into a show that shared the Clueless name, she made the leap to the sitcom and became a pivotal part of it. Featured in every single episode of the show that aired in-between 1996 and 1999, the fact that she is still often looked over blows us away. After all, she may have dressed in ridiculous fashion when she played her part in this series but this ravishing redhead is now forty-six and is a dazzling beauty.
12 Raven-Symoné - Hangin' With Mr. Cooper
If you sit down and try to name actors that, decade after decade, find work that keeps them relevant and steadily employed, there is one name that you should not leave off that list, Raven-Symoné. First coming to the world’s attention when she joined one of the most popular sitcoms of the eighties and nineties partway through its run, she was absolutely adorable as Olivia from The Cosby Show. Subsequently moving on to other series like That's So Raven, The View, and Raven's Home, it was another show she starred in that earned her a spot on this list, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper. A true role model for kids today, she carries herself with a lot of confidence and seems to know exactly who she is, and we love that along with the size of her chest.
11 Christine Lakin – Step By Step
A series that was based on the same concept that The Brady Bunch had been decades earlier, Step by Step was a modern version of an old classic when it first was released. Lasting on television for seven seasons, it seems pretty clear to us that the idea of two families coming together through marriage works on TV which makes us wonder when we’ll see it again. Cast as Alicia "Al" Lambert on the show, Christine Lakin’s character started out as the tomboy of the series. But by the end of its run, producers had to make changes as she blossomed. Thirty-eight years old today, she has continued to grow as a woman. And when looking at photos of her, it seems like the improvements will never end.
10 Krista Marie Yu – Dr. Ken
A show that many saw as somewhat doomed from the moment it was announced, Dr. Ken aired from 2015 until 2017 as a part of the third iteration of TGIF. Starring Ken Jeong, a comedic actor that was known for his outrageous behavior in movies like The Hangover trilogy or the show Community, he didn’t seem like a good choice to anchor a series. However, he was able to scale back his over-the-top antics enough that the series lasted two seasons which gave fans an opportunity to become aware of the talents that Krista Marie Yu has. Seen here at an ABC red carpet event, this shot shows why we think that she will go on to be one of the best-looking actors around as she already has an impressive figure and a pretty face.
9 Elisha Cuthbert – Happy Endings
The type of beautiful blonde woman that the powers that be in Hollywood and casting agents salivate over, we don’t expect Elisha Cuthbert to go long without a notable job anytime soon. First becoming a star when she was cast as the daughter of 24’s Jack Bauer, since then, she has also appeared in shows like The Ranch as well as movies including The Girl Next Door and House of Wax. Of course, she owes her place on this list to playing the female lead in the hilarious sitcom Happy Endings for three years, which was too short of a run for a series that was as funny as it was. Only thirty-five years old today despite how long she has been a star for at this point, she was pretty when her career started but she is now one of the most divine-looking women in the world.
8 Megan Fox - Hope & Faith
Someone that a lot of people may not expect to see on a list pertaining to the TGIF lineup, it is easy to forget that the show Hope & Faith was a part of its lineup and that Megan Fox was one of its stars. A part of the series throughout its run, at the time, she may have thought her career couldn’t get any better but we all know that would not be the case. A major movie star at one time, she played one of the lead characters from both the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchises, which is an impressive feat. Thirty-one years old today, she has grown into being a woman that is the very picture of elegance when she wants to be.
7 Stacey Dash - Clueless
Best known for playing Dionne Davenport in the Clueless movie and show, had Stacey Dash opted to not be a part of the sitcom, we can imagine it not existing as she was so integral to why both worked. Also a part of a long list of other shows and films, you may also remember her for movies like View from the Top, I Could Never Be Your Woman, or Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. A very controversial figure today due to some horrendous things she has said about people in the last several years, Stacey’s image has shifted a lot but there is one thing that remains static. Fifty years old at the time of this writing, seeing how stunning she looks makes us wonder if she discovered the fountain of youth at some point.
6 Danielle Fishel – Boy Meets World
Fans of the show Boy Meets World at the end of its run may find it hard to believe, but during the first years of the show’s existence, Danielle Fishel’s character, Topanga, was very much in the background. Often present when the show’s lead was seen attending school, more often than not, she would be the butt of a joke about her hippie behavior and then she may disappear from the episode altogether. However, by the time the final episode was broadcast, it largely focused on her romantic relationship with Ben Savage’s Cory Matthews as they were a large part of the emotional core of the show. A splendid-looking woman with a large chest that we always enjoy being able to appreciate, Danielle is the most attractive woman in most rooms she enters today.
5 Sara Rue - Less Than Perfect
An actor that broke the mold of someone that led a television series when she was cast in Less than Perfect, Sara Rue was larger than most of her peers but was more beautiful than many of them too. A series that focused on her character and her friends that were misfits, it aired for four seasons, including as a part of the TGIF lineup for a time. Losing a great deal of weight as the series progressed, witnessing her transformation week after week was an inspiring experience for many of her fans, and she has managed to keep it off ever since. Now a slender redheaded beauty that still has a dynamic personality, she seems like a high-quality person, and we know for sure that she is extremely hot.
4 Jodie Sweetin – Full House
The second star of Full House to make this list, Jodie Sweetin was cast as Stephanie Tanner when she was just a child but since then has had a lot of publicly-documented struggles. Someone that suffered from substance abuse issues for much of her life, during interviews, she was honest about her history with some of the harshest drugs out there. Fortunately for her, most importantly, and her fans too, she has since turned her life around and has been sober for several years now, and we can only hope that she keeps winning that fight. After all, she seems like a lovely person that appreciates this time in her life, and we have to say that living a clean life has helped accentuate the fact that she is a buxom blonde that looks alluring.
3 Tia Mowry - Sister, Sister
A series that was unlike almost any other in existence, the concept of Sister, Sister was wholly dependent on the inclusion of identical twin sisters that were fun and likable enough to lead a sitcom. Fortunately, the Mowry sisters were going strong at the time and fit it to perfection which is why the show was able to run for six seasons, including spending time as a part of the TGIF block. One of the women at the core of the show, Tia Mowry and her sibling, Tamera, have since been able to strike out on their own while always being linked for obvious reasons. A fit woman that looks amazing in workout gear or pretty much anything else, she is the type of beauty that would have inspired songs or plays in times of yore.
2 Kaley Cuoco – 8 Simple Rules
One of the most popular, famous, and best-paid figures on television today, when thinking about the career of Kaley Cuoco, it is her current series, The Big Bang Theory, that comes to mind first. However, some may not realize it, but in the past, she also starred in the sitcom 8 Simple Rules for three years, including a period in which episodes of it were a part of the TGIF programming block. Sadly, her contributions to the series will always be overshadowed by the fact that her TV dad in it, the much loved John Ritter, would suddenly pass away during the production of its second season. That said, much of her career is happier and she always seems to carry herself with a smile, at least while she is in public. And we might be as joyful as she is too, if we were as hot as she is.
1 Elise Neal - The Hughleys
An actor that saw a watershed moment in her career during 1997, that year, Elise Neal appeared as a part of many movies, including Rosewood, How to Be a Player, Money Talks, and Scream 2. Taking full advantage of that momentum, the following year, she landed a starring role in TGIF show The Hughleys and remained a part of that show for a further five years. Continuing to work consistently ever since, since 2010 alone, she has appeared in twenty-film movies, most notable of which was Logan, on top of four different TV series. In her early twenties when she was a star of the TGIF lineup, today she is fifty-one and hotter than ever, which is epitomized by a truly impressive photo like the one you see here which was taken during the party for her fiftieth birthday.
