16 Choices Teenagers Made On TV Shows That Were Not So Smart To Say The Least

Yikes, just...yikes.

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what they consider to be the worst decisions teens on TV shows have made. Here are some of the most unbelievable replies:

🚨Warning: Spoilers Ahead!🚨

1. When Emily from Pretty Little Liars dated Paige, who once tried to DROWN her.


"I facepalmed at that."


2. On One Tree Hill, when Peyton chose to believe that psycho Ian was her brother just because he said so and they have the same color hair and eyes.

The CW

3. When Topanga from Boy Meets World turned down going to Yale for Cory.


"It kills me inside that she turned down going to Yale for a guy."


4. On Gossip Girl when Chuck betrayed Blair by trading a night with her to his uncle in exchange for a hotel.

The CW

"Whenever I remember that, I question his character."


5. When Ellie from You ignored Delilah's warning about Henderson and hung out with him at his house.


"If it wasn’t for Joe, who knows what would’ve happened to her that night."


6. On Shameless when Debbie got pregnant on purpose.


"That always bothered me SO MUCH, and it was clearly a bad decision. To no one's surprise, the dad didn’t want to be a father and abandoned her pretty quickly."


7. When Archie from Riverdale pleaded guilty to a murder he didn't commit so his family wouldn't have to endure a trial.

The CW

8. When Donna from That '70s Show decided to forgo college to live with and try to marry Eric.


"She even got excited over living with him in a crappy trailer, and then HE left HER at the altar and later left her altogether to go study in Africa."


9. When Rory from Gilmore Girls decided to sleep with Dean while he was married to Lindsay.

The CW

10. When Callie from The Fosters went off with that pimp in place of another girl.


11. And also when Callie and Brandon hooked up even though they were foster siblings and soon after became adoptive siblings.


12. On Glee when Rachel threw away her Broadway dream role for a TV show that flopped.


"Funny Girl was her dream role and she competed with Santana for it. Broadway was always her end goal; she was majorly versed in musical theater."


13. When Archie from Riverdale thought that the best disguise for his vigilante persona was a black hood even though there was a black-hood serial killer in the town two years prior.

The CW

14. On The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina when Sabrina resurrected Harvey's brother.


"And basically everything else she does."


15. On 13 Reasons Why when everyone let Ani into their group.


"She was getting into everyone's business and was just so annoyingly nosy."


16. And lastly, all of Pretty Little Liars when Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna never told their parents or the police they were being blackmailed and threatened.


"All of them were dumb as heck for that."
