Chandler is known for his sarcastic and witty sense of humor so it’s no surprise that he tops the table for being the most hashtagged sitcom star on Instagram. Even years after the show’s finale, fans still quote the lovable character’s catchphrases on a regular basis.

Dunder Mifflin boss Michael Scott is the second-most Instagrammed sitcom star with 675.8K hashtags.

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.
