The 11 Craziest Crazies Of "One Tree Hill," Ranked According To Craziness

Because there's only one Tree Hill. And it is literally filled with psycho killers and deranged ex-girlfriends.

Posted on

This Friday, April 4, marks the second anniversary of the airing of "One Tree Hill's" finale episode. We could count down the most inspiring monologues, or cutest relationships, or the most tear-jerking moments of "One Tree Hill." But let's be real -- that place was filled with crazy-ass people and they're way more fun to remember.

11. Chris Keller

Okay, he wasn't a true crazy-crazy. But I firmly believe anyone who speaks about himself this much in the third person shows an obvious disconnect from reality.

He was also a member of one of the weirdest rescue missions to ever occur and also ran over someone with his car. I know, people who run other people over with their cars are a dime a dozen in Tree Hill, but it's still kind of crazy.

10. Nicki

In any other world, Nicki would probably be higher on the list. After all, she kidnapped her own child, started a girlfight in Nathan's apartment, and stalks her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Jake from Tree Hill to Savannah. But this is Tree Hill, and unless you are getting terrifying tattoos of your stalkee or trying to drown someone while doing all of the aforementioned things, you're not getting higher than a 10 on this list, honey.

9. Rachel Gatina

Hearsay, you cry! I know, I know, but hear me out. Rachel turned out pretty cool in the end. And, let's be real, we all wanted to BE her. But Rachel did some pretty weird ish along the way, including but not limited to running around Tree Hill naked all the time, trying to steal Nathan from Haley...

...not to mention causing what could be the most dramatic Tree Hill car crash of all time.

But in the end, we all knew Rachel wasn't crazy. She was just crazy in love, and that's something we can all relate to. Amiright Bey?

8. Deb Scott

Deb is another one who won our hearts in the end, but she had her moments. The woman tried to set her on-again-off-again husband on fire, had a relationship with one of her son's friends, and she stood really close to this clown for an extended period of time. Case and point.

But in the end, she was there for her family and redeemed herself in all our hearts. Plus, she cracked Nanny Carrie across the face with a bottle. That was pretty badass.

7. Those mobsters who stole Nathan

Would rank higher, but honestly they probably weren't even really from Tree Hill.

6. Katie Ryan

It's the oldest story in the book: Girl gets contacted by a sports agent, girl gets rejected by the agent because she looks too much like his dead wife Sara, girl becomes obsessed with Sara and dyes her hair blonde and buys pictures of the sports agent and threatens to jump of bridges and shoots the agent and his girlfriend.

5. Daunte the Loanshark

Nathan contracted Daunte's services when he ran out of money in season 4. Because at that point he was, you know, your average married high school senior about to be a dad and cut off from his father's fortune.

First, he tries to break Nathan's leg. You'd think that would indicate to Nathan that perhaps he should stop doing business with him.

Nope. Daunte then SLAMMED HIS CAR INTO HALEY WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT, certifying him as top-tier crazy and furthering "One Tree Hill's" obsession with car crashes.

4. Xavier Daniels

Xavier was quite possibly the scariest of the crazies in Tree Hill. He attacked Brooke twice, stole her foster daughter Sam, and also shot Q.

Xavier was quite possibly the scariest of the crazies in Tree Hill. He attacked Brooke twice, stole her foster daughter Sam, and also shot Q.

However, his scariness was subverted by the fact that he has a brother named JACK DANIELS who made this face, which will make me laugh until the end of time.

3. Psycho Derek

Did he even have a real name? If he does, I don't remember it.

Psycho Derek was undoubtedly one of the craziest characters to set foot in Tree Hill. His psycho-stalker repertoire includes: dressing hookers up as Peyton, having the screen name WATCHMEWATCHU, jumping out of a second story window (AND SURVIVING), and looking a lot like Chad Michael Murray from behind...

I could keep going, but I won't. Thank God Brooke and Peyton remembered their eighth grade cheer camp moves, or Psycho Derek would still be terrifying the Tree Hill community to this day.

2. Nanny Carrie

Nanny Carrie, how do you frighten me? Let me count the ways.

Nanny Carrie, how do you frighten me? Let me count the ways.

First, you jumped into the shower with Nathan unexpectedly. That was weird, Care-bear. But OTH fans sympathized with you that time, mostly because they all secretly wanted to jump into a shower with Nathan too.

Then, you kidnapped Jamie, thereby cementing yourself in our minds and hearts as a crazy. When that didn't work out, you kidnapped Dan. More impressively, Carrie, you acquired a whole working hospital set-up. HOW DID YOU GET THOSE THINGS, CARRIE?! Or do I want to know the answer?

Then, girlfriend, you REALLY went off the deep end and started running through corn fields. Corn fields are literally the scariest places to be trapped with a crazy.

1. The dog who ate Dan's heart transplant

He ATE a HUMAN HEART. In all honesty, Nanny Carrie probably would've eaten Dan's heart given the opportunity. I'd definitely put money down on that. But she never had the chance, and this dog did. And he monopolized on that situation and cemented himself as the Number One Crazy in Tree Hill.

Tree Hill was for sure a place filled with the craziest psychos to ever be, but despite that we all wish we went to high school there anyway.
