"Okay, nobody calls me Terrence! I am T-Bo! T-Bo. I don't talk like this. I sling smoothies! I put food on sticks! And I like a lot of women!"
— T-Bo in iStill Psycho

Terrence Jeter "T-Bo" Bo[4] is an odd Jamaican man that works at the Groovy Smoothie. He typically wears a bandana and is known for selling various types of food on a stick, like pickles, bagels, or tacos. Although he usually annoys people, he seems to be good friends with the iCarly trio.

T-Bo Has a Crop Circle in England.

T-Bo is a Jamaican man who resides in Seattle, Washington.

He works at the Groovy Smoothie. In an interview on iCarly.com, Boofus interviews T-Bo. T-Bo claims that he had worked at the Groovy Smoothie for a year. He also claims that he went to Boston University.[2] Gibby interviewed him and found out that T-Bo used to be a hand model.[3]

In an interview on iCarly.com, Sam says he is one of the managers at the Groovy Smoothie. We find out that before he started selling things on a stick, he sold things in buckets. He proved that food sold better on a stick because he tested it by first trying to sell bananas in a bucket and only sold a few. He put the rest of the bananas on a stick and sold the rest. It is shown that T-Bo can put almost any food on a stick. In iGot A Hot Room, he put hard shell tacos on a stick, which Carly could not do without breaking them.

Physical Appearance

T-Bo has braids and typically wears a bandana.

Personality

T-Bo is portrayed as rather eccentric. Despite working at a smoothie store, he is often seen was begging people to buy items on a stick that are not smoothies, such as bell peppers, bagels, donuts, turkey breasts, muffins, pot pie, yams and tacos. He enjoys asking people to buy these products at inconvenient times, and usually doesn't stop bothering them until they finally give in.

He is rather talented when it comes to putting food items on a stick. He even manages to put hard shelled tacos on a stick without cracking the shell, which Carly was unable to do. One time, he put a stick through the doughnuts instead of using the holes. In an interview with Sam, he says that he puts food on a stick because it looks better and creates more sales.

T-Bo is fascinated by extraterrestrial life, as shown on Carly's blog, and apparently wants to be abducted by aliens one day. When crop circles that looked like him were found in England, T-Bo made some special smoothies using "English ingredients" to celebrate it.

Relationships

Carly Shay

(2009-Present; Friend) T-Bo gave Carly a job at the Groovy Smoothie on very short notice so that she could make some money her room burned down.[1] He was quite laid back and joked around with Carly.

T-Bo sometimes spends time in the Shay Apartment. However, after T-Bo accidentally knocked out Carly's date with a lemon launcher, destroyed items in her house and went to her house without invitation in the middle of the night, Carly banned him from the apartment. In retaliation, T-Bo banned her from The Groovy Smoothie. He eventually dared her to spend one night at the Bensons' apartment to lift her ban. After an overly healthy dinner, being sprayed with anti-tick gas and a fire drill in the middle of the night, Carly realizes how hard it is to live with Mrs. Benson and allows T-Bo back in her place. T-Bo also lifts her ban from the Groovy Smoothie.[5]

Spencer Shay

(2009-Present; Friend) T-Bo gave Carly a job in return for the favor Spencer did for his sister, despite the fact that his sister ended up in the hospital while working for Spencer as she fell off a ladder.[1]
