Gossip Girl :: The Guys
For the guys of Gossip Girl, life on the Upper East Side isn’t just crashing lavish parties and donning designer duds—it’s also contending with backstabbing family members, cheating girlfriends and sktetchy business partners. Kidzworld’s got your run down on the complicated guys of Gossip Girl. You know you love them—xo,xo!
Chuck (played by Ed Westwick) is the flamboyantly-dressed playboy everyone loves to hate. He might be a womanizer and a party animal, but his love for Blair Waldorf seems to hint at a deeper sensitivity—maybe there’s a heart hiding under all that expensive gabardine, after all. The second season of Gossip Girl ended with Chuck presenting Blair with all her favourite things from Europe—including macaroons and stockings—and finally admitting to her that he loves her.
Nate (played by Chace Crawford) is the All-American boy with the looks and money to match—it’s no wonder he’s dated half the girls in Manhattan including It girls, Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf. Nate may have the face of an angel but he’s got a devlish streak too—he once dated a married woman and used his relationship with Serena as a cover-up. But Nate redeemed himself at the end of season 2 when he kept his promise to backpack across Europe with Vanessa.
Dan (played by Penn Badgley) is one of the few students at St. Jude attending on a scholarship, but his charm and quick wit keep him running in the rich kid circles. Dan dated Serena for the first season, but their relationship fizzled with all the class differences to contend with. Despite a public dalliance with his teacher, Ms. Carr, Dan gets accepted to Yale. He’s excited until he realizes he won’t receive financial aid and will have to serve his peers as a waiter to make the money he needs.
