Ship of the Week: Bolinger

"You really are as dumb as those rocks. Of course we're a couple."
— Ginger to Bolin before kissing him
For this week, I decided to write about Bolinger which is the ship between Bolin and Ginger. I believe that somebody requested this last week. As usual, let me know what you would like to see next.


Bolin and Ginger got to know each other through their acting careers while working for Varrick. Bolin quickly developed a crush on Ginger while they were playing each others' love interests in the mover series The Adventures of Nuktuk: Hero of the South. Bolin quickly decided that they should be together in real life as well but Ginger coldly told Bolin that she was confusing her character for herself. Bolin eventually forced a kiss on her while filming a scene. When Bolin and Ginger were introduced as a couple at the premiere of the series finale, they were introduced as a couple but Ginger told Bolin that he was just a knucklehead and that it was only for show. However, after Bolin defeated a group of waterbenders, Ginger referred to Bolin as her boyfriend and kissed him. However, it does not seem that they were actually dating as Bolin briefly got back together with Eska afterwards.

I never liked Bolinger. I found Bolin's sudden crush on her to be weird and I was slightly grossed out when he forced a kiss on her. My dislike for Bolinger was partially due to the fact that I was shipping Boleska but I thought that the whole Bolinger situation was just random. I also found Ginger to be very shallow as she showed no interest in Bolin until he kicked butt with his earthbending. I was even more confused when Ginger said that they were a couple yet Bolin got back together with Eska for a bit afterwards. So did he cheat on Ginger?


  • Bolin and Ginger worked well together as actors.


  • Ginger was very shallow and never showed any real interest in Bolin.
  • Bolin briefly got back together with Eska and then started dating Opal.

So what are your thoughts on Bolinger? Please feel free to comment and thank you for reading this. While it is okay to compare other ships, please try to keep discussion centered around Bolinger. Also, let me know what you would like to see next/
