Although Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are the perfect couple in real life, their characters Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso were a totally different story. On That '70s Show, the onscreen partners were often tangled in a web of drama and lies that often resulted in heartbreak. They may have looked adorable together on the outside, yet it was pretty clear that they weren't the healthiest fit due to the way they often mistreated each other. Here are the five worst things Jackie has done to Kelso (and the five worst things Kelso has done to Jackie).
10 JACKIE ONLY CARED ABOUT HIS LOOKS - WORST THING JACKIE DID
Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso weren't exactly dating each other because they admired one another's personalities. In fact, the majority of their relationship seemed to be based on matters that most people would consider quite vain. Jackie only seemed to be interested in Michael because he had an incredible jawline and abs that would put a greek god to shame.
Other than that, she didn't seem to hold that much admiration for his personality or anything beyond his physical appearance. Michael deserves to be with someone who likes him for who he really is rather than someone only liking him on a surface-level.
9 KELSO CONSTANTLY CHEATED ON HER - WORST THING KELSO DID
Jackie Burkhart may have been self-centered and shallow on That 70s Show but she was by no means a bad person. It was totally unfair the way Kelso kept breaking her heart because he seemed to be unable to control his teenage urges. Countless times throughout their relationship together on the series, Kelso would cheat on Jackie with another woman despite the fact that Jackie was fully faithful to him. This was totally unfair on Kelso's part and Jackie deserved to be with someone who would never even think about being unfaithful.
8 JACKIE FORCED KELSO INTO DOING CERTAIN ACTIVITIES THAT HE DIDN'T WANT TO DO - WORST THING JACKIE DID
Jackie was a bit of a controlling girlfriend to Kelso, considering she always dictated his every move and made him participate in activities that he had absolutely no interest in. For example, in one particular episode of the series, Jackie makes Kelso wear a dress and she basically forces him to let her do his makeup.
Despite the fact that he is not a fan of this plan, she continues to treat him like a doll that she can play with, rather than treating him like a human being. This is seriously not cool on Jackie's end and she should learn that she can't always get her way when it comes to their relationship.
7 KELSO TALKED POORLY ABOUT JACKIE BEHIND HER BACK - WORST THING KELSO DID
There were several instances on the show when Kelso would talk poorly about his girlfriend behind her back. This would mostly occur when the gang would sit around in Eric Foreman's basement in order to form "The Circle".
"The Circle" is pretty much designed for the friends to get high while discussing their issues so we're not saying Kelso doesn't have the right to talk things out with his friends, but there is no need for him to trash-talk his girl in the process. He is supposed to love and respect Jackie, yet the way he consistently talks about her when she's not around is definitely uncalled for.
6 JACKIE CHOOSING A RELATIONSHIP WITH HYDE (AND LATER, FEZ) - WORST THING JACKIE DID
Kelso wasn't exactly an angel by any means when he was dating Jackie, but it was pretty unfair of her to go for his best friends as the series progressed. Yes, Jackie and Kelso were already broken up so Jackie had every right to enter into new relationships, but the fact that she decided to start something new with Hyde and then Fez was slightly selfish. Steven and Fez happened to be Michael's closest pals and she was fully aware of the fact that dating those two would put a strain on her ex's relationship with them. It would probably be better for her to date someone outside of their circle, but feelings are feelings and she ended up falling for the two of them despite their friendship with Kelso.
5 KELSO HITTING ON OTHER GIRLS RIGHT IN FRONT OF JACKIE - WORST THING KELSO DID
In the same vein, it was really uncalled for when Kelso would hit on other women right in front of his girlfriend. This would often happen where Kelso would either flirt with Eric's sister Laurie or Donna when Jackie was in earshot. This careless behavior totally proved that Kelso couldn't care less about Jackie's feelings and he only cared about receiving instant satisfaction. Jackie, on the other hand, only had eyes for Kelso when she was dating him.
4 JACKIE NEVER CARED ABOUT MICHAEL'S DESIRES - WORST THING JACKIE DID
It was very clear that Jackie never cared in the slightest about Michael's hopes and dreams. All she really cared about was how he made her feel and whether or not he was being a good boyfriend to her. She never really loved him as an individual person, she only wanted him to serve her. When it came to his goals and ambitions outside of the relationship, Jackie would often dismiss them and instead force Kelso to put all his focus on her. This kind of behavior is just selfish in a relationship and it proves Jackie didn't care as much about Kelso as we might have originally thought.
3 MICHAEL NEVER RESPECTED JACKIE - WORST THING KELSO DID
It's pretty obvious that Michael never looked up to Jackie in any way shape or form. He never was able to give her the respect that she deserved and whenever she would express her pain about the relationship, he would disregard it as her being "a nag" or "difficult". He only seemed to like her for her looks, but other than that he found her to be quite annoying. It was made very clear that Michael could never give Jackie the relationship that she wanted because he was always looking the other way and trying to find the next best thing.
2 JACKIE KEPT TRYING TO CHANGE HIM - WORST THING JACKIE DID
This was unfortunate for both Kelso and Jackie. It was unfortunate for Kelso because instead of being Jackie's boyfriend, he was more like Jackie's experiment. She wanted to form him into being the perfect man, something he could never be because he's a human being and not a robot. It was unfortunate for Jackie as well, because she was wasting her time trying to change him into a person that he could never be. She wanted him to be a committed partner but he just didn't have the capacity to be faithful. In the end, her controlling need to fix him only made Kelso run further away from Jackie and into another girl's arms.
1 KELSO ONLY SEEMED TO HAVE ONE THING ON HIS MIND WHEN IT CAME TO JACKIE - WORST THING KELSO DID
Throughout their time together, Jackie and Kelso seemed to want different things from the relationship. Totally different things. While Jackie was after the perfect committed relationship filled with romance and flowers, Kelso was only really interested in... what most teenage boys are interested in. This was a reoccurring issue throughout their time as a couple because they never seemed to want the same thing. Because of Kelso's main desires when it came to his relationship with Jackie, it prevented him from seeing her as a human being as opposed to a conquest.
