Ten years ago, Grey’s Anatomy premiered on ABC and introduced TV watchers to Meredith Grey, a dark-and-twisty surgical intern who has just about the worst luck… ever. But she’s not the only one: Each main character on Grey’s is (probably) cursed.
There’s Webber, who lost his wife and his lover. Izzie, who almost died from cancer after losing her patient-turned-soulmate to a stroke. And Owen, who suffers from PTSD after serving in the army. And this is just touching the surface of their many, many woes.
But some are more unfortunate than others, so with the help of a point system, we’ve narrowed down which doctors (who have been a main cast member on the show for at least five seasons) have suffered the most — and which have had a relatively easy go of it.
Here’s how it works: Each traumatic event is assigned a certain number of points, as shown in the table below. The doctor with the most points wins the title of Unluckiest Grey’s Anatomy Character (an honor, indeed). Now let the counting of misfortunes begin.

OWEN HUNT RANKING ...
13. Owen Hunt
-The rest of his platoon dies in Iraq. (6 points)
-Struggles with PTSD. (6 points)
-Shot by hospital gunman. (6 points)

Total: 20 points
NOTE: Off the top our our heads, Team McKidd can easily score Owen Hunt higher on this list.
