Let's Find Out Who Was Really The Most Hated Character On "The L Word"

People hate on Jenny, but how can you defend Tina?!

Posted on

One of the best parts of reminiscing about The L Word is discussing which character was just the absolute worst — there are so many to choose from!

Before this matter is fully put to rest, let's review some of the candidates:

Jenny Schecter

Showtime

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny. Oh, Jenny. It's widely known what most of the fans think of her, but for every Jenny naysayer there is a Jenny Truther defending her. Can the masses forgive and forget all the horrible things she did for her few moments of glory? I mean, she did gift us with the term "vagina wig."

Remember this sentence she actually muttered: "I'm working on a story right now about a woman who's mute from birth, but then she realizes she's able to speak the language of the manatees."

Bette Porter

Showtime

Bette was that character you defended and loved even though, deep down, you knew she was sort of scum. She was selfish and controlling — but, damn, Bette! You could really get away with it.

Source material in which Bette admits that she is, indeed, an asshole: "Because I'm just the biggest fucking asshole of the universe, I guess that's how."

Helena

showtime

The problem with Helena is that there is Season 2 Helena and there is Season 3 Helena — the two are different entities. Once she stopped being a manipulative control freak and simply became one of the gang, she was rather charming!

Tonya

Showtime

Thank you for pushing Alice and Dana to get together, but there's nothing that can reverse the damage done by the pitch and timbre of your voice onscreen. Also, it's like 99.9% a fact you killed Mr. Piddles!

Francesca Wolff

Maybe the one time you felt bad for Jenny was when this woman came back to stir things up in Season 1. Just...rude!

  1. So, who was the ultimate worst? Let's settle this.

    Jenny Schecter
    Tina Kennard
    Bette Porter
    Helena Peabody
    Dylan Moreland
    Creepy AF Adele Channing
    Shane
    Francesca Wolff
    Gabby Deveaux
    Tonya
    Mark “Video Dude” Wayland
    Dawn Denbo and Her Lover Cindi
    Alice Pieszecki
    Niki Stevens
    Kit Porter
    Angus
    Phyllis Kroll
    Marina Ferrer
