|Bob in a moment of moderate terror|
Bob has the least Stupidity of the original four but also the least Courage and does not have the "badass" trait to make up for it. All things considered, he should be the most likely to display frightened facial expressions. Calling Bob "the smart one" might be overstating it, but Bob's personality traits cast him closer to the role of nerdy scientist than intrepid test pilot.
His Steam Trading Card says, "Just realized he's not coming home".
Bob seems to be the least famous of the original four with fewer search hits than Bill Kerman, who has far less than Jebediah Kerman. It's unclear what, if any, consensus fans have of Bob Kerman's character, role, or attitude. In an unofficial video by fan 'EventHorizon5' Bob is depicted as somewhat anxious and unassertive in "Bobbing Around in Space". In the equally unofficial fanwork Kerbal Comics, Bob is depicted as young, eager, scared, and not too bright.
