A Definitive Ranking Of The Boys Of Degrassi The Next Generation

My love for them goes there.

Posted on

*Disclaimer: This list only includes boys from Seasons 1-7, which is when the last of the original cast graduated (aka when I stopped watching). Also, Dean and Rick are not included because they are/were terrible people.

29. Mr. Raditch

The long-standing principal of Degrassi from seasons 1-4 was just a total buzz-kill. One of the only good things he did was give Liberty and J.T. detention together, which helped bring their romantic relationship to life.

28. Bruce the Moose

Bruce was the stereotypical bully who was part of Johnny DiMarco's crew, and he was a douche who popped a water balloon filled with urine over somebody's head. Super gross.

27. Johnny DiMarco

While Johnny was a bad boy, his hair was sooo tragic that it cancelled out anything compelling about his rebellious nature.

26. Linus

The leader of the Friendship Club tried to help Spinner through his issues, but he eventually became way too close-minded and blinded by his faith when he says some choice words to Marco about his sexuality.

25. Archie Simpson

He was the cool tech teacher, but he also cheated on Spike. While she forgave him, that indiscretion still bumps him toward the bottom of the list.

24. Coach Armstrong

Coach Armstrong was always a good teacher, and he wasn't horrible to look at either. He also took the time to tutor students in his off hours (thus spanning rumors about him and Liberty).

23. Lucas Valieri

He was Mia's baby daddy from Lakehurst and was friends with Johnny DiMarco. He was kind of a deadbeat dad, which is never sexy.

22. Derek Haig

He looks like the poor man's Gordo from Lizzie Maguire, and he became a total jerk after framing his best friend, Danny, for shoplifting.

21. Scott "Tracker" Cameron

Sean's cool older brother who looks after him after some trouble with their parents. A good guy, but he eventually abandons Sean when he gets a job offer in Alberta.

20. Sully

The boy who spurred Manny's whale tail moment. He was pretty shallow and was a horrible boyfriend to Manny, but I can see why Manny didn't want to just be "cute" for him.

19. Damian Hayes

When Damian walked onto the scene, he was in hot demand. He hooked up with Manny on the night of J.T.'s death, and then later dated Emma. But then he cheated on Emma with Liberty at prom, so he was kind of a douche bag.

18. Toby Isaacs

Poor Toby. He seemed to be forever in the friend zone with multiple ladies, and his nose was just so unfortunate. Still, he was such a great friend and had a good heart.

17. Jesse Stefanovic

The editor at The Core, the college newspaper Ellie worked for. He and Ellie dated, but he cheated on her a bunch. He was pretty dreamy though.

16. Griffin Pierce-Taylor

He joined the house of Paige, Ellie and Marco in season 7 as the exotic new roommate. He was pretty irresistible as Paige and Marco both crushed on him hard. He was also Question Mark on Radio Free Roscoe, so he's basically flawless.

15. Joey Jeremiah

One of the original cast members from the '80s, and he clearly had it going on then (see above photo). He was Craig's stepdad and was just so adorable. He also has great taste in hats.

14. Chris Sharpe

He was Emma's rebound after she broke up with Sean. He was an aspiring DJ and taught Emma how to loosen up after dating such a bad boy. I would be down to spin some records with him if it weren't for that unfortunate bucket hat.

13. Danny Van Zandt

He was Liberty's little brother and J.T.'s best friend, and he definitely grew from dorky to major cutie.

12. Dylan Michalchuk

The hottie older brother of Paige who stole Marco's heart and mine. His curly golden locks and hockey skills were enough to make my heart swoon.

11. Matt Oleander

The ultimate teacher crush who had an affair with Paige, which resulted in one of Degrassi's most famous cat fight scenes. He was definitely worth the risk.

10. Sav Bhandari

Sav was the Indian hottie who came to Degrassi in season 7. He was also in a band with Peter and Danny, so he had the hot musician vibe going for him, too.

9. Jay Hogart

Sure he gave Emma gonorrhea in the ravine, and dumped paint and feathers on Rick, which lead to the school shooting. He was kind of a dick, but he was also quick with the one liners, and you were always rooting for him to redeem himself. He even managed to win Manny's heart in the end.

8. Craig Manning

The ultimate womanizer and tortured musician of Degrassi. He was terrible to Ashley, Manny and Ellie, but he could also be kind of a sweetheart. He was also a great older brother to Angie, which was adorable.

7. J.T. Yorke

J.T. YOU LEFT US TOO SOON. James Tiberius Yorke was the class clown of Degrassi, and he just was so lovable. R.I.P.

6. Chester

Oh Chester. The cutie who was only on the show a handful of times, but he made his impression nonetheless. I would jeopodize my relationship with Spinner at a school dance for him (à la Manny season 4).

5. Peter Stone

Peter's introduction on the show was definitely pretty scummy (he posted a video of Manny flashing her boobs online), but he eventually becomes a better person. He helps Emma through her anorexic phase, and then goes on to date Degrassi stars who later went on to star on The CW, which I think just proves his attractiveness.

4. Spinner Mason

Spinner's Degrassi experience was quite a whirlwind. He starts out as the chunky friend of Jimmy's, moves up to become Paige's "Honey Bee," loses all social status and friends after his involvement in the "Rick Incident," and then is eventually redeemed. Spinner's curly locks and pet names for Paige circa season 3 cemented my crush on him forever.

3. Jimmy Brooks

Just look at that smile! That's reason enough to fall in love with him. He's an athlete and an artist, and not to mention he has a hefty trust fund.

2. Marco Del Rossi

Marco is the epitome of the unattainable gay man. He's such a great friend, has good morals and sticks up for what he believes in. Sure, he's had some interesting facial hair choices in the past (soul patch), but he is still amazing, and I want to be his best friend.

1. Sean Cameron

The bad boy with a heart of gold. He's just so dreamy and tortured (we're just going to forget about that long hair moment), and I'm still bitter than he and Emma didn't end up together in the end. Oh well, maybe that means I can have him all to myself. Right?
