17. Kenny Bania
Best-known episode: "The Soup"
Stand-up comic Kenny Bania, played by Steve Hytner, wanted Jerry Seinfeld's approval so badly he'd do anything, including giving him a suit for almost nothing and asking him for mentoring sessions. Bania also had a knack for putting a positive spin on almost everything. ("The best, Jerry! The best!") But all these traits, including the comedian's litany of jokes about things that dissolve in milk, made Seinfeld loathe him. But hey, Jerry's loss is Ovaltine's gain. KORY GROW
