The O.C. was one of the most popular teen dramas from the early 2000s but was also very short-lived. It started out strong but blew through so much storyline within the first three seasons that it was forced to come to an end after only four seasons. The O.C. centered around a troubled kid named Ryan Atwood, who is adopted into a wealthy family made up of parents Sandy and Kristen Cohen, and a lovable yet socially awkward teenager named Seth Cohen. One of the best things about The O.C. was the witty characters who fit their roles so perfectly, but the weak characters were also one of the show’s biggest downfalls. On that note, here’s a look back at 10 popular characters from The O.C. ranked!
10. Kevin Volchok
There’s no doubt that Kevin Volchok was the most hated character in the entire series. Ever since he was introduced, Volchok was responsible for all the terrible things that happened in season 3, from hooking up with Johnny’s girlfriend to kidnapping Marissa. Later on in the season, he was responsible for breaking Marissa and Ryan up (although Marissa definitely shouldered most of the blame as well) and was involved in the accident that ended her life.
