The Definitive Ranking Of All 60 'Gossip Girl' Characters From Worst To Best

Spoilers Ahead. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Posted on

60. Vanessa Abrams

Is anyone truly surprised that Vanessa is dead last? From her sleeping a majority of the characters on the show (Nate, Dan, Chuck, Olivia Burke), to scheming with Juliet to take down Serena, Vanessa is the most unfavorable character. Pack up your mismatched clothes and get out Vanessa, you're not wanted here.

59. Prince Louis Grimaldi

Tried to come between Chuck and Blair which in and of itself is unacceptable, but also confessed that he didn't love Blair and forced her to pay a dowry after their marriage fell apart. Not cool dude, even for a prince.

55. Juliet Sharp

Juliet was creepy obsessed with Serena and worked to gain revenge for what happened to her brother--including drugging Serena and having millions of pictures of her on her wall. Stage 5 psychopath.

54. Ivy Dickens

Was paid by Carol Rhodes to pretend to be her daughter, and once she got a taste of the Upper East Side she would not leave (no matter how many times we begged her to).

47. Maureen van der Bilt

Nicer in her earlier episodes, but becomes the scorned wife of Trip and therefore blackmails Lily to keep Serena away from her husband. A shame that she turns vindictive because you could tell she really loves Trip (and being a congressman's wife).

43. Russell Thorpe

Tries to take over Bass Industries--and fails after he is convicted of being the murdering his wife twenty years ago. However, points to him for being able to wear a tux so well.

42. Damien Dalgaard

Overall Damien was pretty destructive to the Upper East Side. He got Jenny involved in his drug dealing and started the rumors between Serena and Ben. Most of the time everyone just wanted to wipe that smug grin off his face.

37. William van der Bilt

Grandfather to Nate and Trip, William is not above manipulating those around him to get what he wants. It also should be noted that he is always wearing the EXACT.SAME.EXPRESSION.

35. Nelly Yuki

One of Blair's former minions, who ends up going to Yale over Blair. Becomes a fashion critic set out to get revenge over Blair. Her wide rimmed glasses may possibly be the most annoying thing about her.

31. Bree Buckley

Bree Buckley and Nate hit it off on a plane and then found out their families were political rivals. Bree used Nate's friendship with Serena to get to Carter Baizen, but she also had some pretty dresses.

29. Blair's Minions at Constance

Out of all of the sets of minions Blair had the the group of Penelope, Hazel, Isabel, and Kati were by far the best. They had more of a backbone and personality then her other minions by far. And they knew how to use yogurt as a weapon.

28. Sage Spence

Daughter of Serena's boyfriend in season 6, Sage sabotages the relationship as well as Blair's fashion show--she did however have amazing style and was the Queen of Constance.

27. Ben Donovan

Ben was Serena's previous teacher that got thrown in jail because of Lily van der Woodsen. Him and Serena start a relationship once he is out of prison--but the truth is that they aren't right for each other and this whole storyline was kind of boring.

24. Olivia Burke

How Dan was unaware that he was dating the famous movie star Olivia Burke continues to baffle me. Her most memorable moment was having an embarrassing to watch threesome with Dan and Vanessa.

23. Jenny Humphrey

Ahh Little J, there are such mixed emotions for you. She started out as sweet and an amazing fashion designer, but she turned quite bratty. And no one will ever forget that you slept with Chuck causing him and Blair to break up in season 3. NO ONE.

19. Colin Forrester

Colin was Serena's gorgeous neighbor and romantic interest, making it quite awkward when she found out he was going to be her professor. Their love didn't last but his good looks sure did.

18. Jonathan Whitney

Jonathan was Eric's first true boyfriend. Jonathan was one of the most normal characters on this show, thus ending it with Eric when he saw how much Eric had changed.

14. Jack Bass

Chuck's hot scheming uncle caused a lot of despair in earlier seasons. Jack did seem to care somewhat for his nephew and helped Chuck regain Bass Industries. His devilish grin alone is enough to love him, right?

12. Eleanor Waldorf

Eleanor can be criticized for caring more about herself than her daughter on occasion. However, Eleanor does grow to fully appreciate Blair and understands that Chuck is the one for her daughter. Also, being a successful fashion designer doesn't hurt.

11. Eric van der Woodsen

Eric was so sweet and dealt with a lot of bullying from Jenny and her friends. He himself got a little too wrapped up in trying to take down little J. Leave the scheming to Chuck and Blair, kids.

10. Georgina Sparks

While a majority of the time Georgina was being malicious, she offered some of the best quotes of the show--and eventually I began to respect her for the slightly crazy woman that she is. Also, it is far too great that she ends up with her counterpart Jack Bass in the series finale.

9. Dan Humphrey

While Dan spent a large chunk of his time talking about how much harder it was to be from Brooklyn to the people on the Upper East Side, credit where credit is due. Dan WAS Gossip Girl, and imagining him typing XOXO continues to make me chuckle.

6. Nate Archibald

Aww, "Saint" Nate was always such a gentleman. He was always awkwardly stuck in a love triangle and never had any great story lines past season 2, but his kindness and good looks will be remembered.

4. Serena van der Woodsen

Much respect to Serena for changing from her party girl ways (for the most part). Serena had wonderful fashion sense (albeit a few too many chest cutouts), and always cared for Blair even when they were enemies. Serena had an infectious personality and dreamed big--earning her a place in the top four.

3. Chuck Bass

Chuck Bass was one of the most complex characters on the show. He works to prove his father wrong by building up Bass Industries and loses his playboy characterization by falling in love with Blair. My one hope is that everyone learn to dress as smoothly as Chuck Bass.

2. Dorota

There is no one in this world as loyal to Blair as Dorota is. Dorota said some of the most hilarious statements on the show, with my personal favorite being "KGB can’t get me to talk, Chuck Bass has no chance." Dorota will forever be one of the best things about Gossip Girl.

1. Blair Waldorf

Are any of you actually surprised that Queen B is number one? There is no doubt Blair can be malevolent towards most people, but when it comes to the people she most cares about she is unconditionally loyal. Blair will always be queen; especially in terms of intelligence, power, fashion, and love.

All in all, Gossip Girl gave us 6 great seasons of Upper East Side love, drama, fashion, and friendship and for that I am eternally grateful.
