Whoever you want it to be.by jessicakzaleskiCommunity ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 45. Rebecca Bloom Via oc.wikia.com You DO NOT try to break up Sandy and Kirsten Cohen. 44. Will Via dvdsea.com LOL Chris Brown as a band geek. 43. Charlotte Morgan Via tvguide.com Remember when she met Kirsten in rehab and then tried to con her? But then Julie Cooper saved the day and ran Charlotte out of town because Julie is the HBIC of the OC? 42. Johnny Harper Via joshschwartzfans.wordpress.com Way to mess things up between Marissa and Ryan, dude. RIP 41. Veronica Townsend Via oc.wikia.com We all wondered why Taylor was so insane until we met this demon woman. 40. Carter Buckley Via tvmegasite.net UGH CARTER. We all knew what you were doing when you took Kirsten to a wine tasting, got her drunk, and then tried to stay in the SAME hotel room because you guys couldn't drive home. 39. Young Kaitlin Cooper Via fanpop.com Hey, it's Shailene Woodley! Little Kaitlin was kind of boring, which is probably why her parents shipped her off to boarding school. 38. Dean Hess Via fanforum.com It was SO satisfying when Ryan punched him. 37. Casey Via fanpop.com Can you REALLY blame someone for cheating on wimpy Johnny with Volchok? 36. Brad and Eric Ward Via tvfanatic.com Luke's twin bros/Kaitlin's BFFs were the breakout stars of the final season even though they shaved their chests. 35. Matt Ramsey Via fabriziomuscio.it NO. You DO NOT get to mess with Sandy Cohen's conscience. 34. Oliver Trask Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via t-h-e-o-c.tumblr.com Can we just talk about how Oliver made up a girlfriend, physically tried to hurt Ryan, and lied about taking a bunch of pills? AND HOW MARISSA BELIEVED ALL OF IT??? 33. Jess Sathers Via oc.wikia.com Way to make everything terrible for everyone. 32. Zach Stevens Via tvguide.com Let's be real. Zach was just a placeholder for Seth. We knew it, Summer knew it, even Zach knew it. 31. Trey Atwood Via foooooooooooooo.tumblr.com I can't decide if he ruined Ryan's life or saved it by making him steal that car. 30. Chili Via dailymail.co.uk Public school Seth just wasn't the same. 29. Teenage Kaitlin Cooper Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via the-oc-love.tumblr.com Okay, I don't know which boarding school she went too, but Kaitlin left Newport as a boring little girl and came back a QUEEN. 28. Dr. Kim Via hotflick.net A true princiPAL. 27. Dr. Roberts Via fanpop.com His choice in women was...questionable, and he hated Seth when he first met him. He would have been ranked dead last if it wasn't for the fact that he produced Summer, one of the most amazing humans ever. 26. Theresa Diaz Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via t-h-e-o-c.tumblr.com She was totally jealous of Ryan's new life and eventually LIED TO HIM ABOUT LOSING THE BABY. 25. Taryn Baker Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via t-h-e-o-c.tumblr.com Taryn was the best Newpsie in Newport. 24. Lindsay Gardner Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via taylortownsend.tumblr.com She ended up being Caleb's daughter, which meant she was kind of Ryan's aunt, which meant things got way too weird. BUT she did make Ryan apply himself and get good at school, so great job. 23. Frank Atwood Via turbinefashion.tumblr.com Okay so he used to be a deadbeat, but Frank ended up becoming a pretty nice guy. It was weird when he dated Julie though, right? The Cooper women must have put some witchy spell on the Atwood Men. 22. DJ Via fanpop.com I think Summer described him perfectly when she said DJ was "a hot, hot yard guy, who was hot." 21. Gordon Bullit Via derok.net BANG! 20. Young Sandy Cohen Via dazedhq.wordpress.com It's Schmidt, you guys! 19. Holly Fischer Via fanpop.com The reason Marissa ODed in Tijuana, but I always wanted a friend like Holly who would invite me to drunken ragers at her beach house. 18. Dawn Atwood Via hotflick.net Sometimes I loved her and sometimes I just couldn't deal. 17. Caleb Nichol Via tvsubs.tumblr.com He loses points for being a huge meanie and also for becoming Charles Widmore. 16. Hailey Nichol Via en.wikipedia.org GET A JOB, ALREADY. 15. Anna Stern Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via its-a-teenagewasteland.tumblr.com Seth couldn't deal with dating the lady version of himself, and to be honest, she was probably way too cool for Newport anyway. 14. Jimmy Cooper Via screened.com He really tried to be a good dad but went about it in all of the wrong ways. Running away isn't a good parenting technique. 13. Volchok Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via queen-0f-candyland.tumblr.com He turned Marissa into Courtney Love and then KILLED HER (but he was sooo hot omg). 12. Alex Kelly Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via sadnessandmemories.tumblr.com Olivia Wilde! These scenes are how most of us convinced our boyfriends to watch the show. 11. Marissa Cooper Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via sadnessandmemories.tumblr.com No, Marissa, you were NEVER emotionally stable. 10. Che Via annabiotics.tumblr.com Chris Pratt was GOLD on this show. 9. The Nana Via tvmegasite.net The Nana struck fear into the hearts of the Cohen family, but I always thought she was the coolest old lady. 8. Luke Ward Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via taylortownsend.tumblr.com He went from a school bully to an outcast who loved hanging with Seth. Is anyone else curious about what Luke's life is like in Portland right now?? 7. Ryan Atwood Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via thehourhascome.tumblr.com Look, I know he's the main character of the entire show, but he was from CHINO and also could be kind of boring at times. 6. Kirsten Cohen Via pintasdajoaninha.wordpress.com I would be happy if I ended up being 1/1000th as classy as Kirsten. 5. Julie Cooper Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via patchthatqueenbitch.tumblr.com In the first season we ALL hated Julie. She was a superficial, gold digging mom. BUT tell me you didn't cry when she got a diploma in the final episode and didn't want a man to support her anyone. #TeamJulie 4. Taylor Townsend Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via lizzieolsens.tumblr.com I know a lot of people won't agree with me here, but 98% of us would never be as cool as Summer and Marissa if we lived in Newport, and we'd probably end up being more like Taylor. 3. Summer Roberts Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via lizzieolsens.tumblr.com O.C. queen. 2. Seth Cohen Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via weheartit.com Yes, Ryan was probably supposed to be the show's heartthrob. But I will take wit and sweaters over a wife beater/wrist cuff ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. 1. Sandy Cohen Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Via the-oc-love.tumblr.com BEST TV DAD EVER. PLEASE GIVE ME GUIDANCE.
