The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper is also a fan favorite on Instagram, being the third-most-Instagrammed character in the report with 393.4K hashtags.
Sheldon’s quirks, such as his spot on the couch, his knock on the door, and catchphrases like “bazinga,” contribute to him being so memorable and iconic.
Detective Jake Peralta of Brooklyn Nine-Nine claims the title of the fourth-most Instagrammed with 305.1K hashtags.
Jake Peralta is known for his quick quips, pop culture references, and playful banter with his colleagues which make him a consistently entertaining character.
