Every Single Gossip Girl Character Ranked Worst to Best

Bart Bass

There's evil and then there's Bart Bass. This man does not have one nice bone in his body. He was was sleazy, a cheater, a felon, oh and paid to have people killed...including the attempt of his own son. All around just a true monster. No wonder Chuck is so messed up. Justice was more than served to Bart in the second to last episode.

Carol Rhodes

Trash. That's the one word I think of when I think of Carol Rhodes. I mean, who has a baby with their own sister's husband and then hides the child, Lola, from her family throughout her own childhood? It's awfully ironic how she complains about the lifestyle of the Upper East Side when she hires someone her daughter acted with, Ivy, to pretend to be Lola in order to gain access to her trust fund. Then again, I wouldn't expect anything less from this woman.

Ivy Dickens

Speaking of Ivy, she sure does not fall far from the top of the Most Hated list. She is one psychotic girl. Also, am I the only one who cringes when I hear her obnoxious voice?

Juliet Sharp

Juliet is nothing but a vindictive, calculating psychopath...that's really about as nice of a way as I could put it. Sure, she's furious that the van der Woodsens put her brother in jail but drugging Serena and leaving her alone in a motel room to die was going a tad too far...especially considering Serena isn't even the one who signed the affidavit. She dedicated her life to ruining Serena's but I guess seeing a pinboard in her apartment of everyone's faces was a sign from the get go that she is demented. The worst part was, Serena just let her free after she figured out what all she did to her. If I were her, I would suggest she was locked up in a psych ward before she harms anyone else.

Trip van der Bilt

I was disappointed at how awful he turned out to be because he's so attractive. But between running off with Serena as a married man and leaving her alone in a crashed car to sending a car out to kill his own cousin, Nate, his looks have to be overlooked I suppose.

Russell Thorpe

To sum in up in one sentence: he killed his own wife and got what he deserved in the end.

Carter Baizen

One word comes to mind when I think of him: shady.

Prince Louis Grimaldi

Paid Chuck's therapist to share information about him and forced Blair into a dowry after they got married. You may be a prince but you will never be Chuck Bass, deal with it.

Gabriel Edwards

Just another no good con-artist, but he's from North Carolina so that's pretty cool.

Poppy Lifton

Just another manipulative socialite who worked with Gabriel to con Serena's family for money.

William van der Woodsen

Sorry but being Serena and Eric's father does not make up for giving out fake cancer and having a baby with his wife's sister.

Damien Dalgaard

Drug dealer who sold the drugs that almost got Serena killed. He was out of control and I think everyone was happy once his father finally figured out what he was really doing.

Vanessa Abrams

Let me start off by saying, I didn't like Vanessa from day one. I knew something wasn't right from the start when she climbed through Dan's window unannounced. She followed Dan around like a lost puppy dog and was always complaining about the lifestyle of the Upper East Side when last time I checked, she was always finding her way into these parties... and not to mention, slept with Dan, Nate, and Chuck all at one point. How about that for a contradiction.

Jenny Humphrey

I must say, I was rather disappointed that she turned out to be the little brat that she was. She was so sweet at the beginning but turned into quite the chaos. Sorry little J, but no matter how hard you try you will never be able to compete with Queen B.

Diana Payne

Her dresses were way too tight for work and her strong accent gave me a headache after a while. Oh, and let's not forget she ran a brothel.

Georgina Sparks

Oh Georgia. From crazy, to finding Jesus, to...well back to crazy. She is so messed up that after a while I somewhat found myself liking her because she simply could just not help how insane she truly was.

Jack Bass

I found this gif of Jack to be nonetheless fitting for him. He may have been awful at the beginning without a second of doubt, but just like Chuck, they grew into their characters and found a sense of morality. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I would ever consider Jack Bass to be a mortal person, but her certainly made some improvements. Oh, him and Georgina Sparks make the perfect couple.

William van der Bilt

He may have always pinned Nate and Tripp up against one another and may not really know how to smile but I guess that doesn't make him a bad guy.

Penelope Shafai

Nelly Yuki

We all know a Nelly Yuki. Top of the class, braniac who is so beyond obsessed over their grades that they they're too busy to not come off as rude to everyone.

Cece Rhodes

Howard Archibald

Anne Archibald

Ben Donovan

Colin Forrester

Lola Rhodes

Eh, I don't know. She's not a bad character necessarily but we really did not get much time to know her since we discovered her towards the end. I understand her frustration with her mother keeping her family a secret from her, but she did not have to take that out on those who did not know what Carol was doing.

Harold Waldorf

He may have left Blair's mom for a male model, but that didn't stop Harold from still being a good father all the way from France.

Eleanor Waldorf

Scott Rosson

Olivia Burke

Although Olivia was only on the show for a short amount of time, she gets bonus points for because she's Hilary Duff. She also seemed to have her morals in line throughout her time on GG, unlike most of the characters who come and go on the show...except for that painfully awkward threesome with Dan and Vanessa that has forever ruined my image of the once innocent Lizzie McGuire.

Cyrus Rose

Dan Humphrey

Dan is the one character I have seen be slapped or punched the most throughout the show. Serena, Blair, Chuck, and Nate have all thrown him around at one point or another for a very good reason. Dan meant so well at the beginning, but his judgement sure was clouded up throughout the series. Maybe Gossip Girl himself should be further up on the list and maybe it's just me, but I was never a huge fan of Humphrey.

Rufus Humphrey

Out of all of the scandal that went down on Gossip Girl, I would have to say I don't think I ever saw Rufus do anything totally immoral. Not sure how he handles having Jenny Humphrey as a daughter but he sure does a better job than I would have. He has such a good heart and honestly I wish him and Lily stayed married in the end. Side note: I would really love to try one of his waffles.

Lily Bass/Humphrey/van der Woodsen

Poor Lilly, she just could not hold a steady last name...or well, husband. She may have had several shady moments, but at the end of the day Lily was one of the good ones.

Eric van der Woodsen

Sweet, sweet Eric, he has such a good heart. Not to mention, his low key humorous remarks that get thrown in there don't go unnoticed.

Serena van der Woodsen

Nate Archibald

Aw Nate, he is such a good guy. Besides his love triangle involving two best friends at the beginning of the show, the boy is always seeking to do the right thing. Unfortunately, his "good guy" act is always seems to lead him to these psychotic women (ex: Juliet Sharpe, Diana Payne) who use him in their scheming plans. But how could you even begin to use Nate? He's one beautiful piece of God's work.

Chuck Bass

If there was a "Most Improved" award for the Gossip Girl characters, it would have to be Chuck. His life sure wasn't easy, but he was destined to find Blair to make him see the light. I think I can speak for all girls when we say we could all use a little Chuck Bass in our lives.

Blair Waldorf

All hail Queen B, also known as my spirit animal. She does not stop until she achieves her goals and because of that, I strive to be her. Her wit, charm, scheming, and devotion to those she cares for is what placed her in the Top 2.

Darota Kishlovsky

I think anyone who has watched Gossip Girl can agree Darota makes the show. Besides her unconditional loyalty to Blair, no matter what she says, she never fails to make me laugh. Oh, and the way she says "Miss Blair" and "Meester Chuck" is just the cherry on top. However, I will admit, I was always hoping she was the one who turned out to be Gossip Girl.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
