Every Bridgerton couple (PLUS A FEW!) ranked from best to worst

Will Colin and Penelope reign supreme? Here's our rundown of the best and worst Briderton Couples

Popverse is taking a brief pause beginning Thursday, July 11, as we not only prepare for SDCC 2024, but also put the finishing touches behind the scenes on a new website platform to continue delivering news, interviews, guides, and more about comics, tv, movies and conventions, the best way we know how.

Popverse's top stories of the day


The third season of Birdgerton is, without doubt, the social event of the Netflix season. Part one of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington's love story is available on the streaming giant right this very moment with the second half of the season debuting June 13th, to conclude one of the most anticipated slow burn romance payoff of recent years.

Do ColPen really deserve to reign supreme when Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma are right there, however? And where is the love for Dafne and Simon? Have no fear, Popverse has some Lady Whistledowns of our own prepared with not a pamphlet, but a video, ranking the best Bridgerton couples list for your pleasure.

Be sure to indulge with a strong cup of tea and tasty biscuit in hand.

Happily for us, Popverse’s Ashley V. Robinson was able to sit down with ReedPop Marketing Director and Bridgerton expert Fallon Prinzivalli ahead of the premiere episode of the second half of Bridgerton season 3 ,to discuss and rank the three couples above - with some additional exploration of Benedict Bridgerton's onscreen bisexuality (Happy Pride!), and the fanon ship of the series: Eloise Bridgerton and Cressida Cowper. Will they agree? Will they manage a definitive ranking? Do they even like Bridgerton?

Okay, that last one's an obvious yes.

"I love them!" Prinzivalli gushes to Popverse about Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington's romance, "I love them so much. So, Ih have to say: ... Pen and Colin are my favorite. This season is my favorite. This couple is my favorite."
