    The Definitive Ranking Of "Gossip Girl" Characters

    XOXO.

    60. Jenny Humphrey

    The CW / Via muchlovetosave.tumblr.com

    Even when she was sweet "Little J" she was annoying. But by the time she turned into "gothic barbie," she managed to destroy Nate and Serena's, and Blair and Chuck's relationships. We're so thankful for Momsen's music career only because it got her wretched character off the show.

    59. Beatrice Grimaldi

    capturingbreakfastclub / Via capturingbreakfastclub.tumblr.com

    Irrelevant and annoying, Beatrice tried to ruin Blair's chance at happiness. While we agree that the marriage will likely be a disaster, Beatrice gained no sympathy.

    58. Maureen Vanderbilt

    The CW / Via xoxogossipgirl.wikia.com

    Yet another lady who tried to save yet another doomed relationship, while managing to irritate us all. Her attempts at manipulation and power were weak in comparison to the rest of the show.

    57. Russell Thorpe

    The CW / Via blog.muchmusic.com

    His last appearance involved him trying to burn Blair alive in a house... Need we say more?

    56. William van der Woodsen

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Aside from abandoning Serena and Eric, he also slummed it with Ivy in an attempt to win back Lily. And we are all supposed to be okay with him succeeding? You're the Jack Donaghy we never wanted.

    55. Asher Hornsby

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    With possibly the grossest last name on the show, Asher was also a real dick. Hiding his love for Eric in an attempt to help the social-climbing Jenny ranks him low on this list.

    54. Alison Humphrey

    The CW / Via flikefrank.wordpress.com

    Look at that sly smile as Alison "tries" to make things work. Alison was hypocritical, whiny, and we were all happy to see her go.

    53. Poppy Lifton

    The CW / Via youknowyoulovefashion.com

    Poppy always felt like she could waltz right in and ruin Blair's fashion shows and friendship with Serena. As if. She was also a scam artist just for kicks.

    52. Bree Buckley

    The CW / Via xoxogossipgirl.wikia.com

    Another one of Nate's flings that we just couldn't care less about. Insignificant. Goodbye!

    51. Bart Bass

    The CW / Via etonline.com

    Bart Bass was Satan. We thought we got rid of him in Season 2, but leave it to Bart to pop up alive in some haunted mansion orgy. Melodramatic, viciously cold, and attempted murderer of his own son—need I say more? And if you didn't laugh when he fell off the roof, you take the show way too seriously.

    50. Jordan Steele

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    You're probably trying to remember who this character is, so let me refresh your memory: she's the one who hooked up with Nate on his trip to Yale. Jordan might be the most obscure character in the sense that she never really caused any drama.

    49. Anne Archibald

    The CW / Via gopixpic.com*documentingreality*com%7Cforum%7Cattachments%7Cf10%7C436480d1363522669-women-caskets-thread-44*jpg/

    If you can't already tell, the parents on this show are the worst. Anne always looked neurotic and was willing to blame anyone but her husband for his obvious crimes. Nate deserves better, Anne.

    48. Aaron Rose

    The CW / Via buddytv.com

    Serena had a lot of horrible boyfriends, but Aaron had to have been the worst. Slimy, gross, and without a personality, Aaron just managed to cause drama. His only saving grace is his father.

    47. Howard Archibald

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Again, another horrible parent. He's only ranked ahead of Anne because at least he attempted to redeem himself in later seasons.

    46. Carol Rhodes

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    She hired an actress to be her daughter in order to get more access to the family checkbook, which ultimately backfired. Classic Rhodes girl. At least Krysten Ritter played her in a flashback.

    45. Damien Daalgard

    The CW / Via plotkara.soup.io

    What do you mean the kid from "Air Bud" is a drug dealer? Damien has a fair amount of good one-liners, but other than that, he was just another troubled rich kid with unreasonable issues with the main characters.

    44. Nelly Yuki

    The CW / Via sarahmarieh.wordpress.com

    Once endearing and awkward, Nelly Yuki becomes a journalist with a vendetta against Blair. As if destroy her chances at admission to Yale wasn't enough, she had to side with Poppy Lifton, of all people, in Season 6.

    43. Sage Spence

    The CW / Via fanfiction.net

    Nate's relationship with seventeen year-old Sage always creeped us out. And while her attempts at revenge were cute, they were no match for seasoned veterans, Serena and Blair. She's also a repeat fedora offender.

    42. Steven Spence

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Another Spence, another huge age-gapped relationship — only this time, Serena is involved. Sure he was nice, but he was too much of a dad to handle the drama of the Upper East Side.

    41. Diana Payne

    The CW / Via spoilersguide.com

    Diana "Payne in my butt" AMIRIGHT? Just kidding, but still Diana managed to run a brothel of sorts, date Nate, and coerce with Bart Bass. Props for getting so involved, but she was just another product of the ridiculous drama of Season 5.

    40. Marcus Beaton

    The CW / Via tumblr.com

    Otherwise known as "The Lord" by Blair, Marcus was involved in arguably the best episode of Gossip Girl (Season 2, Episode 1). The accent switch he pulls in the episode is predictable, but classic. Points lost for hooking up with his step mom.

    39. Rachel Carr

    The CW / Via youknowyoulovefashion.com

    We hoped the simple Iowan teacher would be cool, but she had sex with Dan in a costume closet and tattled to Yale, ruining Blair's chances of admission.

    38. Juliet Sharp

    The CW / Via tvguide.com

    Crazy? Probably. But her intentions were good and she pulled off a pretty elaborate scheme and looked pretty damn good doing it.

    37. Jonathan Whitney

    The CW / Via youknowyoulovefashion.com

    Jonathan was an overall annoyance on the show and certainly not good enough for Eric. He also whined too much when Jenny's minions egged him. Get over it. Happens all the time in the Upper East Side.

    36. William van der Bilt

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    "Grandfather" tends to mess with the members of his family's heads, but you had to respect the old man's power and wealth.

    35. Ivy Dickens

    The CW / Via ask-ivydickensxo.tumblr.com

    Ivy Dickens was the character we all wanted to love, but never did. When we found out she was a con artist, it was enough to want this character to disappear. And the image of her cuddling with Rufus is still vomit-inducing.

    34. Scott Rosson

    The CW / Via fanpop.com

    Rufus and Lily's love child was very forgettable for both the audience, and Dan and Serena as well. He always meant well, which is rare in the "Gossip Girl" world.

    33. Vanessa Abrams

    The CW / Via tumblr.com

    Vanessa had the worst style of anyone on the show and always managed to mess things up for superior characters — So annoying. We are blessed she left the show after Season 4.

    32. Ben Donovan

    The CW / Via etonline.com

    Ben gets pity points for having to spend jail time for a crime he didn't commit. Other than sleeping with Serena, he was pretty forgettable.

    31. Raine Thorpe

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Raina's role on the show is irrelevant, but she always looked gorgeous and managed not to annoy anyone too much. Also, points awarded for having to tolerate a terrible father.

    30. Headmistress Queller

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Queller brings back the nostalgia of better seasons of "Gossip Girl." She tries her best to handle the girls of St. Jude and seems to be the only sane adult.

    29. Jack Bass

    The CW / Via tumblr.com

    Jack Bass had great quips, witty comebacks, and the Bass family name, but his incessant need to destroy his nephew got old quickly. Luckily he redeemed himself in the last season.

    28. Louis Grimaldi

    The CW / Via hphrpg.forumcommunity.net

    Before he turned evil and brought in a horrible dowry plot line, Louie had some good qualities. There was a point where he thought he was right for Blair, which earns him a mediocre spot on this list. After all, he is a prince.

    27. Agnes Andrews

    The CW / Via waldorfia.tumblr.com

    Agnes is psychotic. But let's be honest, we all wish we could have lit all of Jenny's hideous dresses on fire in a trash can.

    26. Kati Farkas and Isabel Coates

    The CW / Via the-fashion-barbie.blogspot.com

    Two loyal minions with a short-lived lifespan on "Gossip Girl." That's about it.

    25. Those little girl stalkers

    The CW / Via imdb.com

    Their names are irrelevant. But they always manage to pop up on screen somehow and confront the main characters.

    24. Eva Coupeau

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    She was the roadblock to Blair and Chuck's happiness, but you have to respect her as a person. She took in a homeless Chuck, remained by his side through hardship, and loved him unconditionally. But let's be honest, that isn't any fun.

    23. Roman Garrel

    The CW / Via youknowyoulovefashion.com

    Roman falling on the ice in Season 1 is enough to separate him from other secondary characters. However, it's pretty hard to believe this man is a model.

    22. Lola Rhodes

    The CW / Via ggbygossipgirl.tumblr.com

    Lola just wanted to cater events and escape the insanity of her family, but that isn't an option when you're a Rhodes. She always had good intentions, but who cares?

    21. Olivia Burke

    The CW / Via fotolog.com

    Olivia Burke is played by Hilary Duff — points for that. But when Lizzie McGuire decides to have a threesome with Dan and Vanessa, we have issues.

    20. Lily van der Woodsen

    The CW / Via pennbadgly.tumblr.com

    Lily is the OG of the Upper East Side with her conniving and deceitful ways. However, her old tricks get annoying and her drama detracts from the story lines we actually want to see.

    19. Tripp van der Bilt

    The CW / Via loveholic198.tumblr.com

    Aaron Tveit playing Nate's hot cousin? What could go wrong? Apparently a lot, seeing as he left Serena in a car crash and then tries to kill Nate a couple of seasons later.

    18. Carter Baizen

    The CW / Via ohsebastianstan.tumblr.com

    Carter started off as a con artist. Then, somehow, he turned it around, becoming morally superior to nearly everyone on the show by the time he accepts his sentence on a Texan oil rig? Gossip Girl's character development is weird but you can't question it too much.

    17. Rufus Humphrey

    The CW / Via littleruiners.tumblr.com

    The poor man just wanted to make waffles for his children, yet he somehow managed to be a terrible father. He was always so clueless and his mistakes got tiring.

    16. Colin Forrester

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Colin was the super hot professor Serena hooked up with for a semester, but then decided to ditch the show when he found out Juliet drugged her. Colin is the one that got away.

    15. Penelope Shafai

    The CW / Via gossipgirl.wikia.com

    Penelope was always a fun minion who gave Jenny hell when she deserved it. She was also, inevitably, loyal to Blair.

    14. Hazel Williams

    The CW / Via de.gossip-girl.wikia.com

    Maybe it's her distinct face that we find amusing, but overall Hazel was a great character. She embodied everything a minion should be.

    13. Harold Waldorf

    The CW / Via xoxogossipgirl.wikia.com

    Harold is a great father to Blair, despite leaving her mother. The #1 Dad of the "Gossip Girl" world.

    12. Cece Rhodes

    The CW / Via fanpop.com

    Cece is ranked highly on this list because, ultimately, she was right: Dan was not a match for Serena. You have to respect Cece for being a queen and stirring up drama from below the grave.

    11. Eleanor Waldorf

    The CW / Via coolspotters.com

    While Harold is the #1 Dad, Eleanor is the #1 Mom. Aside from her crappy parenting at the beginning of the show, Eleanor really turned around and became very supportive. She also stayed out of most of the super boring parent drama (*cough* Rufus and Lily *cough*).

    10. Dan Humphrey

    The CW / Via silly-luv.tumblr.com

    Dan barely sneaks his way into the top ten. The show would be nowhere without him and he is the ultimate insider, but the character is destroyed in the last two seasons. He is manipulative, cold, and judging by his hair, sort of disgusting.

    9. Georgina Sparks

    The CW / Via waldorfia.tumblr.com

    Georgina is the villain we love to hate, and whenever she turns up, the episodes get better. Georgina Sparks is committed to plotting like no other character, which is saying a lot.

    8. Henry Bass

    The CW / Via leightedlimosex.tumblr.com

    While only appearing on the show for a matter of seconds, Henry Bass proved he is flawless and is the product of flawless parents.

    7. Eric van der Woodsen

    The CW / Via fyeahgg.tumblr.com

    It's a shame the writers ran out of plots for Eric because he truly is a gem. Always the voice of reason and a great brother.

    6. Cyrus Rose

    The CW / Via fuckyeaheverythinggossipgirl.tumblr.com

    Cyrus is flawless. This is indisputable. He never does anything wrong. He is also the cutest person on the show.

    5. Nate Archibald

    The CW / Via padfoot-s.tumblr.com

    Nate is a gorgeous human being and so kind. He's the only one to never send in a tip to "Gossip Girl," and he's adorably dim-witted. His screen time and story lines grow less and less significant as the show goes on.

    4. Dorota

    The CW / Via ggbygossipgirl.tumblr.com

    Dorota is the comic-relief of "Gossip Girl" and always fantastic on screen. The show would not be the same without her.

    3. Serena van der Woodsen

    The CW / Via sebastijanstan.tumblr.com

    "Gossip Girl" is Serena's show in the end. She's always the "it girl," and it starts and ends with her. Despite all her boy troubles being tiring, she's always a fashion icon and the center of the good drama.

    2. Chuck Bass

    The CW / Via gurl.tumblr.com

    Because... he's Chuck Bass. Enough said.

    1. Blair Waldorf

    The CW / Via blairwarldof.tumblr.com

    Of course Queen B tops the list. Who else would? This is her kingdom and, inevitably, everyone else is just a minion.
