Gossip Girl had a lot of potential. With characters like Chuck, Blair, Dan and Serena, it seemed like it was destined to be more exciting than most other teen dramas. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. It didn’t take long for a number of the storylines to become totally ridiculous, much like a soap opera. Most other teen dramas have tried to stay away from characters coming back from the dead and plots so complicated and over-the-top they were almost cartoonish, but not Gossip Girl. It was tough to choose, but here are Gossip Girl’s 10 most ridiculous storylines.
10. Anything Involving Jenny
During season one, Jenny wasn’t so bad. She was kind of annoying, but at least her storylines were moderately interesting. After season one though, Jenny became insufferable and the storylines involving her character became ridiculous. From dropping out of school to pursue a career in fashion to becoming Queen Bee at Constance to her obsession with Nate. By the end, she was a constantly screwing with other people’s relationships. It didn’t matter whether it was Nate and Serena or Blair and Chuck. She had absolutely no compunction and we wish that they had written her off at the end of season one.© The CW / Courtesy Everett Collection
