Beverly Hills, 90210 is an institution of ’90s popular culture. The non-stop drama and love triangles held us glued to our seats for all 10 seasons! The constant battles and rivalries between lovers created some of the most iconic couples of the decade. In honor of its role in teen love-lives everywhere, we’re ranking the best and worst couples from the saga.
13. Donna and Ray
Ray Pruit may have been one of the most villainous boyfriends on the series—and also probably revealed the show’s prejudice towards poor people, but the insecure, underprivileged Ray seemed great at first. Donna even left Giffin Stone for him! But in time, Ray’s abusive side was revealed, and after cheating with Valerie Malone, he pushed Donna down the stairs! Ray even stalked her and confronted her new boyfriend, football quarterback, Joe Bradley. The two fought and Ray got the worst of it—an injured arm. He obviously tried to sue, but dropped the charges and left town. The series must have realized just how stereotyped Ray was because they were sure to bring him back for an episode to show how reformed and successful he was.
