Ann Veal is George Michael's occasional bland girlfriend.
Actor: Alessandra Toreson & Mae Whitman — First Appearance: "Let 'Em Eat Cake" — Last Appearance: "Development Arrested"

   It sounds like your father just gave us permission to start doing it. You must teach me, George Michael. You must teach me the ways of the secular flesh.

Ann Veal is George Michael's occasional bland girlfriend. Michael, Maeby and the rest of the Bluth family aren't too keen on her.

In "Development Arrested", it is revealed that G.O.B. was sleeping with her after trying to have a threesome with Ann and another woman.

Ann Veal is portrayed by two actresses: Alessandra Toreson in Season One's "Let 'Em Eat Cake" and by Mae Whitman for the other 12 appearances in Seasons Two and Three.

Family and faith

Her father, Terry Veal, is a pastor and her mother is Mrs. Veal. She is very religious and often invites George Michael to mass.("Meat the Veals") She also has a "music burning party" to burn the devil's music but the party turns into a "CD burning party" where other classmates burn CDs for each other. ("Burning Love") Their Christmas celebration is set in Bethlaham time and includes many hours or singing and silent prayer. ("Afternoon Delight")

(Lack of) personality

She is continually thought of as bland looking, which makes Michael Bluth feel that George Michael is settling in his relationship. Many other Bluths forget who she is and are confused as to why George Michael would be dating her, often asking "Her?" or inquiring if she is funny. Michael constantly forgets her name and calls her many nicknames.

Ann and George Michael start dating while watching a FOX 6 news special about the Banana stand together. They spend more and more time together but don't take things physically due to Ann's religion. When Michael finally comes to terms with his son's attraction toward Ann he gives them his blessing, which Ann takes as permission to get physical. ("Meat the Veals") It is unknown if they ever got physical, but Ann "outgrew" George Michael and moved on to see other men, namely G.O.B. ("Notapusy") ("Development Arrested")
