You guys have been loving this series so far and we are back with another fictional character –Penny from the Big Bang Theory!
Penny is the non-nerd on the series and is known for her blonde hair, blonde jokes and a way of making the show more …watchable. The show is set in California, Pasadena, where it is not uncommon for people to chase their dreams of becoming an actor. The character Penny is no different. Penny’s big dreams of becoming an Actress sees her taking on a job as a Waitress at the “Cheesecake Factory” while living quite comfortably in a decent sized apartment near a lamp shop. It’s quite strange how a waitress and scientists with varying paychecks can afford to live in the same apartment building, so of course, we too like you are curious to know just how she did it.

Let’s just assume she got roles on a weekly basis that would allow her to pay rent, shop, and get new headshots — that would still not be enough on minimum wage if the roles she got were as extras.
In season 8 for the episode/s called “The Tenure Turbulence” and “The Fortification Implementation,” the writers flipped the script (literally) where Penny leveled up by getting a job as a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep with the same company Bernadette works at after getting married to Leonard. Here, Penny has a monthly salary +bonuses for she proudly earns from flirting with Doctors. This clearly means she is able to meet her quota each month plus much more and according to some digging, a pharmaceutical sales rep can earn $USD100,000 per year according to Glassdoor.
We now know that Penny afforded her Lifestyle by working a full-time job as a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative — another mystery solved!
