    34. Andy Hargrove

    The CW / Via fuckyeahonetreehilll.tumblr.com

    33. Derek Sommers

    The CW / Via xpeoplealwaysleavex.tumblr.com

    Peyton's real brother — he taught her to fight and to sleep after her attack by "Psycho Derek." Nice guy.

    32. Owen Morello

    She was fun and provided some good music.

    Hot Uncle Cooper — I too would lie about my age to sleep with you.

    27. Sam Walker

    The CW / Via waltzingwithfire.tumblr.com

    Brooke's foster child — she had some total spunk but had terrible eyeliner. She left Tree Hill to live with her mom and never returned.

    26. Tim Smith

    The CW / Via nathanhaley-purple-wildflower.tumblr.com

    Nathan's sidekick — so dumb but so funny.

    25. Chris Keller

    Yes, you tried to ruin Naley but you were hilariously evil and brought the comedy.

    24. Quinn James

    The CW / Via xpeoplealwaysleavex.tumblr.com

    Married Clay, took some good photos. Very average character — but she looked very good in her underwear

    23. Quentin Fields

    The CW / Via life-in-tv-show.tumblr.com

    I was so sad when Q was murdered. But your friendship with Jamie was so adorable.

    22. Clay Evans

    The CW / Via francheskaaar.tumblr.com

    Had a dead wife, a stalker, married Quinn and had a child whose memory he suppressed. Busy guy.

    21. Millicent Huxtable

    The CW / Via xpeoplealwaysleavex.tumblr.com

    Millie was awesome as Brooke's assistant, but as model she was a total bitch. She was, however, a great role model to non size-0 girls.

    20. Alex Dupre

    The CW / Via lunalovebad.tumblr.com

    Slutty actress turned musician. Loved her spunky attitude and how she showed that appearances are not what they seem with her suicide attempt.

    19. Victoria Davis

    The CW / Via thesecretsoflights.tumblr.com

    Bitchtoria was a bitch. But I still loved her, especially when she became nice to Brooke but a bitch to the rest of the world.

    18. "Skills" Taylor

    The CW / Via jessica-dayy.tumblr.com

    Yes, he had questionable taste in women cough Deb cough. But he was so cool and often said what we all thought.

    17. Julian Baker

    The CW / Via jumpersandwellies.tumblr.com

    The dick who broke Peyton's heart but then became Brooke's world. *Sigh* You were so lovely! But please stop with the movie quote references

    16. Jake Jagielski

    The CW / Via peacelovetreehill.tumblr.com

    Come back Jake! Definitely the best teen dad in the world and he can also serenade you.

    15. Larry Sawyer

    The CW / Via -sawyer-scott-.tumblr.com

    Best dad! Whilst he was away a lot of the time, he was there when it was needed and looked out for both Peyton and Brooke.

    14. Bevin Mirskey

    The CW / Via oneetreehiill.tumblr.com

    The best cheerleader and was always the "dumb" friend. She brought the comic relief to the show and ended up with Skills at the end — score.

    13. Dan Scott

    The CW / Via allyouneedis1treehill.tumblr.com

    Yes you shot your brother, went to prison, and ended up hosting a tacky television show, but what would Tree Hill be without you?

    12. Karen Roe

    The CW / Via thesecretsoflights.tumblr.com

    Karen was the mother I wanted — understanding, caring, tries too hard to be cool, but overall so lovely.

    11. Keith Scott

    The CW / Via theresonly1treehill.tumblr.com

    Lucas's "surrogate" father and such a great role model for everyone. RIP Keith.

    10. Whitey Durham

    The CW / Via waltzingwithfire.tumblr.com

    The coach everyone needs, with words of wisdom at the right times.

    9. Deb Scott

    The CW / Via tumblr.com

    Crazy Deb, where do I start? Yes, you were a train wreck as a parent, but I love you and your kooky ways.

    8. Hayley James Scott

    The CW / Via everythingtreehill.tumblr.com

    Hayley — you were a little yawn for me, personally. But I couldn't not put you in the top ten, as your relationship with Nathan was beautiful.

    7. Jamie Scott

    The CW / Via life-in-tv-show.tumblr.com

    James Lucas Scott definitely brought the humor to season five and was so cute. Never grow up!

    6. Marvin "Mouth" McFadden

    The CW / Via caughtwithinthecrossfire.tumblr.com

    The best dancer at all Tree Hill High and the guy that is everyone's friend. You were loved by all and got the happily-ever-after you wanted.

    5. Peyton Sawyer

    The CW / Via wonderfultreehill.tumblr.com

    Peyton had such a hard life, but her music and bad ass attitude got her through.

    4. Lucas Scott

    The CW / Via dreamerformyidol.tumblr.com

    The hopeless romantic who for five seasons was in the three-way love triangle. You could also be really whiny and sometimes got annoying. But I still love season one Lucas!

    3. Nathan Scott

    The CW / Via horny-for-pizza.tumblr.com

    Oh, Nathan! You were a dick who became the man every girl wants to end up with and were a great father. With you not being as whiny as Lucas, you get extra points.

    2. Rachel Gatina

    The CW / Via callmebiless.tumblr.com

    A controversial choice as I hated her at the start — but learned to love her! She had such spunk and confidence.

    1. Brooke Davis

    The CW / Via somaisumabagatela.tumblr.com

    Seriously, did you expect anyone else? Brooke Davis had it all — ballsy, cheeky, beautiful, open to love, funny, talented. Oh, I love you Brooke.
