Over the course of its nine seasons, One Tree Hill kept things interesting with the arrival of new characters to shake things up for the core group. Sometimes this went well and that person became a fan favorite, other times it was hard for audiences to watch that character on their favorite show. Given how popular the show was, and how great the writers were with character development, not a lot of annoying characters were actually hated and many were essential to shaping the show and part of the most intriguing storylines. Regardless, One Tree Hill was not devoid of some infuriating characters, and here are some of the worst.
9. Ian Banks
In all honesty, the character of Ian Banks aka “Psycho Derek” was only annoying because of the ridiculous storyline he was embroiled in. Ian was most definitely creepy and it got annoying that it was clear to everyone except Peyton that something was off with him, but what made it worse was that he just wouldn’t go away. After being beat up and shoved out of a second story window, it seems most people would struggle to get their bearings, but not Banks who escaped only to return and terrorize and almost kill both Peyton and Brooke.
