Blair vs Serena-the ultimate question?

Who deserves to be Queen Bee? Or "Queen B"? That is the question we gossip girl viewers can't help but speculate over, particuarly since it has been a running theme since the very first episode.

Okay, so personally I'm with Blair all the way. I don't love her character, but out of B and S, I'm with Queen B. Yes, she is paranoid, bitchy, and insecure, but that's why we love her! In a weird way, it actually adds to her unique sense of style (I mean in character, not looks), and we can identify more with her than serena, who is portrayed as having a "perfect life."


I find Blair amusing to watch, and I often feel sympathetic and touched too. Sometimes her motives are so transparent, that I don't buy into the whole manipulative side to her, she's just another struggling kid in my eyes. She's generally kind to those close to her, and even those who aren't, on ocassions she has helped Jenny and Dan, with no personal motives. She cares about Eric, about her mom, and she looks after serena. I love loyalty!


she also has SUCH style!! I love the way they dress her. The thing is, I think she deserves to be Queen B because she clearly wants it so much more than Serena. Serena's attempts at gaining that life style are so out of the blue, because until now, she's just been about being kind/having fun/ being with dan. Until now, I found her much more dull, which was why, as an onscreen character, i preferred Blair. Now i think S is much more interesting to watch, but I think the way she is pushing her way up the ladder lacks authenticity, she doesn't want that power the way Blair does, she's just doing it out of insecurity. I don't mind when Blair acts that way, because that's who she's meant to be. But I thought Serena was just meant to be a good natured person!


On the other hand, until now, she's been much nicer, and much more thoughtful, than Blair. If it were real life, I'd probably prefer Serena, because-until now at least- she's been more genuine and down to earth. But as characters on a show, Blair is much more appealing and interesting to me. Also, the question of their looks, which everyone always seems so interested in! Well, i personally think Blair is absolutelly stunning, so pretty! and a lot more natural looking, since she's a little curvier, has natural hair colour, not as much make up etc. But I think serena is more striking, because she's tall/thin/blonde and all that. And also the whole nose job thing, I don't have a problem with plastic surgery, but I admire a more natural look personally. I just think serena's look is a lot more manufactured than Blair's. But I can see why some people prefer her character. So what do y'all think? Queen B or Queen S?

Queen B of course!I always stick with the first character. Blair needs that status to feel like she has got something, like she is important in some ways. While Serena is just trying to steal her throne because she wants to piss her off. Of the two motives,Blair is the one who needs it more. And Serena looks so fake when she tries to be all bitchy. We've seen how nice she really is when she was going out with Dan, before they decided to break up (definitely break up on season 2).And when Blair is going to end up with Chuck (because I kno and hope she is) then they are going to reign on manhattan as Queen B and King C.(alphabetical hazard lol)

OMG obv Queen B as Blair is the best because she never pretends to be something shes not like serena did cause Blair always showed she was a bitch and Serena always was trying to hide something and Serena only wants to get back at Dan and Blair just wants to be Queen as its her thingoh n Blair and Chuck are so MTB :d
