Who Is TV's Ultimate Mean Girl? Let the Nominating Process Begin!

There’s a name for you, ladies. But it isn’t used in high society…outside of a kennel.” We all know and love that zinger from the 1939 classic The Women — or at least we should! — and it will certainly apply to the participants of TVLine’s next great bracket tournament.

Yes folks, get ready for TV’s Ultimate Mean Girl, a single-elimination tourney that will celebrate the small screen’s all-time greatest she-devils, harpies, vixens, harridans, and “rhymes with the English-language equivalent of brujas.” The tournament obviously would be invalid without the likes of Revenge‘s Victoria Grayson, Melrose Place‘s Amanda Woodward, and Ugly Betty‘s Wilhelmina Slater, but we need a total of 64 delectable ladies to channel our inner Tim Gunns and make it work. And that’s where you come in.

Head on down to the comments section and nominate your favorite TV mean girls — we welcome characters from classic TV series all the way through to current hits — and give us a few reasons why these battle axes shouldn’t be left out of our tournament. We’ll then scour your list of nominees and your well-reasoned arguments to select our full roster of 64.

So start your nominating below, and for up-to-the-minute alerts on when TV’s Ultimate Mean Girls will begin, sign up to follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Faye Chamberlain from The Secret Circle!
    Didn’t like the show but totally girl crushed on her.

  6. Mikaela says:

    Blair Waldorf – Gossip Girl, she’s called a Queen B for a reason. She is the smartest sassiest elegant scheamiest girl and can destroy the once she hate and once she love and still look fabulous.
    Georgina Sparks – Gossip Girl, she was a Gossip Girl after all
    Juliet Sharp – Gossip Girl, she destroyed Serena and looks great doing it
    Cordelia Chace – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she was THE mean girl in Buffy
    Darla – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, poisoned beauty
    Faith – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she was a bitch
    Glory- Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glory is the most selfish, most self centered character on show
    Drusilla – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she was so damn crazy it made her unforgettable
    Ilyria – Angel
    Lilah – Angel
    Kathrine Pierce – The Vampire Diaries, she’s the craziest psychotic bitch in town
    Rebekkah Mikaelson – The Vampire Diaries, She maybe sad and neglected but also bitchy and sassy
    Alison dieLaurentis – Pretty Little Liars, she made them all fear her and adore her
    Mona Vandervall – Pretty Little Liars, she might have been crazy but after the Alison era she was IT
    Sue Sylvester- Glee, she’s a bitch!
    Quinn Fabray – Glee, she’s the perfect Quinn chick
    Santana Lopez- Glee, this girl really is the IT mean girl
    Chloe McGruff – Don’t trust the bitch in apartment 23, well she hates underwear
    Siobhan Martin – Ringer, might have been the good twin but she definitely wasn’t good at all
    India – Jane by Design, heartless bitch
    Paris – Gilmore Girls, ‘keep your eyes on the prize’ this Blairs quote is most certainly about Paris

    These all I conciser to be mean girls, at least at certain point of their lives. But my ultimate mean girls are Blair Waldorf and Kathrine Pierce.

  7. Lianne says:

    The infamous Katherine Pierce, of course.

  8. felicia says:

    Emily thorne for sure
    Rebekka from Vampire Diaries (or Katerina either one)

  9. Shea says:

    Katherine Pierce hands down.

  10. Aviram says:

    The Seer (Charmed)
    Patti Nyholm (The Good Wife)
    Alice Morgan (Luther)
    Lilian (The Charmings)
    The Borg Queen (Star Trek Voyager)
    Lilah Morgan (Angel)
    Isabelle Tyler (The 4400)

  11. Beth Ann says:

    Jen Clark, Naomi’s sister, on 90210 – she is such a b*tch!

  12. Ackles. says:

    Bonnie and Katherine from TVD
    Meg, Lillith and Ruby (both) from SPN
    Gabrielle from Desperate Housewives (Ha!)
    Kate Beckett from Castle (definitely)

  13. Beth Ann says:

  14. Gail says:

    The gals of Mama’s Family:
    Thelma Harper (Vicki Lawrence), Ellen Harper (Betty White) and Eunice Higgins (Carol Burnett)

  15. km says:

    There is a tragic lack of support for Downton’s Miss O’Brian here. Also, almost no mention of Lady Mary Crawley? She might be the show’s romantic heroine but she’s also a class A queen B.

    You could fill a bracket with daytime mean girls alone, but at the very least the cream of the crop: Carly (GH), Dorian Cramer and Blair Daimler Cramer (OLTL), and Erica Kane (AMC).

    From Buffy, Cordelia Chase definitely, but I think Darla and Angel’s Lilah Morgan were meaner girls than Faith.

    Adding on to the votes for Pam de Beaufort, Nicki Grant (Big Love), Santana Lopez, Sue Sylvester, Regina Mills, Cersei Lannister, Gillian Darmody (she talked her son into killing his father!), Karen Walker, Sydney Andrews, Miss Parker, Anna (V), Madison Sinclair, Miss Piggy, and Angelica Pickles.

  16. darcywilson says:

    Ling from Ally McBeal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And Sydney from Melrose Place. Always loved her more than Amanda.

    • Everleigh says:

      Rachel Gatina! Besides being the quintessential high school popular b****, she lied about her age to Cooper, caused him to crash the limo, then lied to Nathan about seeing dead Keith, tried to sleep with Nathan knowing he was married, expecting a baby with Haley and completely devoted to his wife, almost got into a physical fight with a pregnant woman, got addicted to drugs (if i remember correctly), married Dan… yep, she needs to be there.

    • Nikos says:

      Rebekah and Lauren Tanner FTW

    • Stephen Evans says:

      Seconded Siobahn Martin – RINGER

    Nellie Oleson
    Mrs Oleson,
    Alexis Carrington
    Sue Ann Nivens

  25. Nicole says:

    Katherine from The Vampire Diaries! I think the point of this competition is not only to see who is the meanest of the mean, but also who is the most appealing mean girl. Katherine has that quality that you love to hate. Let’s face it — we all hate her most of the time but at the same time, the show wouldn’t be the same without her on it. She is the ultimate mean girl because she is despicable and also human. She is the ultimate bully, the ultimate mean girl, because she is well-rounded and three-dimensional. She’s done so many awful things, and she is cruel, but we love to watch her be the way she is. She is and always will be the ultimate mean girl in my book. I hope this nomination convinces you also.

  26. Nicole says:

    Alison DiLaurentis from Pretty Little Liars. Alison was a bully. Her actions were lower than low, and she has little to no redeeming qualities. But admit it, guys…we live for those moments during this mediocre show when there is a flashback and we see the Queen Bee herself. She is magnetic, and she makes you want to watch her. I’d probably stop watching the show altogether if Alison wasn’t a part of it. Dead or not, she is one of the ultimate mean girls of television at the moment.

  35. Taelor says:

    Anna from the new V or Dianna from the old one

  36. Charnice says:

    Did anyone mention Valerie from BH 90210?

  37. elspeth says:

    what about Nicole Wallace from Law and Order: Criminal Intent? Not sure if she’s a mean girl as much as just plain evil, but I’m not sure if a “female villains” contest will happen. other thoughts: Julia Winston from CSI: Miami, Jane Christie from “Coupling” (BBC), Paris Geller from Gilmore Girls (i know we come to like her, but still), and Yolanda/Saffron/Bridget from Firefly.

  38. Anna says:

    Sue Sylvester! She’s the meanest, overpowering, miniachal bitch I’ve ever watched on television. She’s funny about it, but she’s still mean.

  39. Kaitlin says:

    Lucille Bluth, anyone? Not quite as villainous as some of the potential nominees but boy does she get in some great bitchy lines.
    When asked by her granddaughter if they could get ice cream: “I don’t think so, that chubby little wrist is testing the tensile strength of that bracelet as it is.”

  40. Ashley says:

    Cordelia Chase or Blair Waldorf… Or Abed on Community LMAO

  41. Zilly says:

    Okay, im just gonna throw this out there. Kimmie Gibbler from Full House!!! I mean come on :-)

  42. Mel says:

    Lucille Bluth, Blair Waldorf, or Regina from once upon a time!

    • Susan says:

      Lucille is one of those mothers who you love watching on tv but would never wish to have as your own mother. She cracked me up and was certainly mean, but poor Michael!

  43. Lorelaisquared says:

    Paris Gellar from Gilmore Girls
    Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl
    Regina from Once Upon a Time

  44. Katelyn says:

    Blair Waldorf from gossip girl. Santana Lopez from glee. Rachel Gatina from one tree hill. Cordelia from Buffy. Elle from heroes. Jackie from that 70s show. Sue Sylvester from glee. Wilhelmina from ugly Betty. Georgina sparks from gossip girl.

  45. Katy says:

    Lauren from Fairly Legal!
    Also Lauren Reed from Alias. :)

    • Susan says:

      Can we nominate Lauren (alias) just for marrying Vaughn? ;) Sure she was a double agent but her stealing Sydney’s man is what really sticks in my mind.

  46. Dawn says:

    Wow, some really great ones. Someone finally put down Katy Sagal’s Gemma from Sons of Anarchy. Andrea Parker’s Ms. Parker from The Pretender. Then lets go back even further…
    Jane Wyman as Angela Channing of Falcon Crest
    Donna Mills as Abby Cunningham of Knots Landing
    Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing of Dallas
    Delta Burke as Suzanne Sugarbaker of Designing Women
    Sara Clarke as Nina Meyers of 24
    Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O’Brian of 24
    Penny Johnson as Sherry Palmer of 24
    Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones of Sex In The City
    Nina from Fringe

    That’s all I can think of for now, but I’m sure there are LOTS more.

    • Jim says:

      Yes to Nina Myers and Sherry Palmer, no to Chloe. She may have supported bad boy Jack, but she’s not a mean girl. If TVLine decides to do a “weird girls” tournament, though, I’ll nominate her myself.

  47. Thea says:

    Lilah Morgan from Angel without a doubt. Cordy from her Buffy years, even tho I still think she had plenty snark/edge in Angel. And even though we only saw her twice in it, I volunteer Yosafbridge from Firefly as tribute to this tourney.

  48. Miranda says:

    Paris Gellar from Gilmore Girls?
