Jeff and Troy 2
Jeff and Troy portrayed by Joel McHale and Donald Glover.
Jeff and Troy were two of the most physical and athletic members of the study group who would occasionally compete in various sporting contests. In their first years together at school Jeff established himself as a leader and a popular figure at Greendale. This would at times bother Troy as he himself was once a star quarterback, homecoming king and B.M.O.C. at Riverside High School. Although Troy enjoyed his juvenile antics with Abed he longed to be considered more of an adult. Because of this Troy looked up to Jeff and admired his seemingly more mature and cool persona. At different times they each pursued a romantic relationship with Britta Perry but in both cases it didn't work out. In their fifth year at school, Troy left Greendale to embark on a potentially financially rewarding adventure. Jeff admitted that by doing this Troy had become much cooler than he was. Jeff is portrayed by Joel McHale and Troy is portrayed by Donald Glover.

Pairing historyEdit

Season OneEdit

We're trying to get Jeff ready for the fiiiiiii-ght. I couldn't think of another word.


–Troy and Jeff, "Comparative Religion".

School year synopsis

In the 2009-2010 semester at Greendale disbarred attorney Jeff Winger met recent high school graduate Troy Barnes through Abed Nadir. Troy had been invited by Abed to the library along with a few other classmates to a Spanish study group Jeff had formed. Unbeknownst to him Jeff had formed a fake group just to woo Britta Perry, one of the students in attendance. When Jeff's ruse is discovered he is kicked out but afterwards Troy encounters him outside the building. They bonded when Troy was impressed with his opinion on whether or not he should continue to wear his varsity jacket. Troy and the other members of the group take pity on Jeff and convince Britta to let him rejoin them. After the Dean puts Jeff on the college recruiting posters, Jeff convinces Troy to play football for Greendale in order for the posters not to be used. This causes a conflict with Annie which makes Jeff feel guilty. He tries to get Troy to quit football at a pep rally but Troy is OK playing because the standards at Greendale are so low there is no pressure on him. Troy passes wisdom to Jeff by saying he should accept he is at Greendale and relax. Troy gets Jeff to help a tripping Pierce at the study group's first Halloween party and before Christmas, helps Jeff train to fight the school bully. Jeff (and Britta) interfere in Annie's relationship with Vaughn Miller by telling Troy things about Annie to make him interested in her.

2009 - 2010 semester

"Pilot": When Troy meets Jeff, he calls him "Seacrest" and indicates since Jeff says he is a Spanish tutor, that Jeff can do all his homework for him.

"Environmental Science": The study group tries to get Jeff to talk to Chang about easing up on homework. Jeff dissuades them but it is Troy who points out Jeff is convincing and gets him to relent. When the group finds out Jeff is partying with Chang to get good grades for himself only, Troy says Jeff has a weird forehead.

"Comparative Religion": Troy helps Jeff get ready for a fight with school bully Mike Chilada by teaching him the Forrest Whitaker stare and "what's up?".

Jeff makes fun of Troy but eventually comes to respect his opinion and calls him Captain. Once the mission is over, Jeff hugs Troy and gives him a "complisult" on his ability to be a real astronaut.

"Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples": In the end tag, Troy dresses the same as Jeff and copies what he says.

"Epidemiology": At Halloween, Jeff makes fun of Troy's "Alien" costume so Troy changes to a "sexy Dracula".

Uh, I guess they share one important feature in your eyes.
