Penelope Taynt is Amanda's 12-year-old self-proclaimed number one fan. She runs a fansite,, which is actually an official site created for the series. Penelope also has the odd habit of interjecting the word "please" into almost all of her sentences (though in her website she puts this down to the fact that she has always been told to say "please" when she wants something, and she wants to meet Amanda).

Between segments in every show, she uses some harebrained scheme to try to meet Amanda, often with the help of Drake, Josh, or her brother Preston Taynt (played by Taylor Emerson), but never succeeds, though she is at times exceedingly close to doing so. She frequently interviews people who know Amanda in an attempt to be pointed in the right direction. On rare occasions, Penelope invades skits already in progress (most notably 'Cooking with Me' where she is chased by Security, and steals the cooking pot to try to carry Amanda with her, but Amanda comes up from the hole in the cooker). Her brother Preston has met Amanda and sometimes asks if she could meet Penelope; Amanda always says she cannot. She once shared some romance with Trevor, Barney's son, for a while. However, just as she was about to meet Amanda, she willingly gave up the opportunity and kissed Trevor just as Amanda walks by, unseen by the two. Penelope Taynt makes an appearance in the All That episode that guest starred Amanda Bynes, once again chasing after her idol. rocky cassdie loveless
