    Yeah, and we don't really know what all Chidi did before/during school. Tahani's the only one out of the group who we can say for sure has never worked a normal job.

    Chidi 100 pecent worked his way through school . He wouldnt want to put a burden on his parents by having them co-sign a loan. Im sure he got some scholar ships as well

    Tahani’s good friend Leonardo was in a movie about a ship once. Not a scholar ship though.

    I think scholar ship is where Tahani had her yachting lessons. (Which is to say, lessons on how to dress on a yacht, what orders to give the crew, etc.)

    Actually, it's werid - Chidi is the only one we have NO IDEA about their parents. like... at all. Everyone else's parents we know were various shades of awful, but we have zero idea for Chidi's (In general we seem to know the least about chidi's life)

    I think they have had trouble figuring out what exactly Chidi's life is, what language he speaks, where he lives, what accent he should have, etc. They don't even seem to understand how professor jobs work, so it's not really clear what he was doing at that university.

    Well we know he's multilingual, and French is his preferred language. As to where he lives, we know he grew up in Senegal and was based in Sydney, Australia (whether this is shown well enough in the show is a different question)

    Beyond that... ???

    The logical career progression in the real world would be Senegal -> graduate studies + early career in France -> tenure track in Australia. They seem to be going to great lengths to avoid the whole French linguistic situation though.

    Yeah, shouldn't he have a French accent in the Australia scenes?

  • tynictynic PICNIC BADASS Registered User, ClubPA regular
    There was some thread discussion about that in S3, I think they did try and shove in some extra backstory to explain it but I don’t remember the details.

    My headcanon is that he got anxious about his Senegal French accent but was worried about appropriating Australian culture and ended up with this American accent.

    IIRC they had William Jackson Harper try a Senegalese accent and it messed with the joke rhythm so they just told him to do it in his regular accent and invented The Good Place de-accentification thing to accommodate. And got the killer Tahani accent joke out of it.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    While not exactly the same, growing up in a certain part of Canada, I know a number of people who primarily speak French, who can fluently speak English with little to no trace of a French accent.
    I'm guessing the main reason on the show is just that it was easier to handwave it and move on, but anecdotally, it's definitely a thing.

    I love that every time we've said something like this, where we notice a big hole like this, like chidi's backstory, the show almost immediately fills it in

    And there's the episode we get to cite when we're mad William Jackson Harper does not get an Emmy nomination. But also quite possibly the one Danson wins with, so there's that.

    That scene between Michael and Chidi was gold.

    Kristen Bell should have been nominated a couple times for various things and never has been.

    Patricia Arquette won lead actress for freakin' Medium the year Veronica Mars premiered, as the most galling example.
