What Your Favorite Degrassi: The Next Generation Character Says About You

Paige Michalchuk — You’ve been prescribed what people would deem “fun” pills but refuse to share them with friends because you “actually need them.”

Manny Santos — As a teen you weren’t allowed to have a boyfriend, but owned thongs that would set off an airport metal detector.

Peter Stone — You date emotional fixer-uppers.

Emma Nelson — You make people uncomfortable at restaurants.

Jay Hogart — You don’t have a favorite book.

Ellie Nash — You believe moving to New York City will fix everything.

Spinner Mason — You’ve spent actual money on Alien Ant Farm paraphernalia.

Darcy Edwards — You really believe in “Catholic School Chic” and have owned several pleated skirts despite going to a public school.

Sean Cameron — You’ve drunkenly purchased Spaghettios (or similar Chef Boyardee products) in the past six months.

Hazel Aden — You are afraid of hand jobs.

Spike Nelson — You’re worried you may have cut your hair too short this time, every time.

Craig Manning — Your ability to attract the opposite sex despite being a total mess is really irritating for your emotionally stable friends.

Holly J. Sinclair — You used to wear white eyeliner.

Marco Del Rossi — You’re unsure of how to wear a vest but hope to someday pull it off.

Alex Nunez — You haven’t spoken to your parents in years.

Snake Simpson — There are too many forceful women in your life.

Liberty Van Zandt — As a child, you recorded audio of yourself giving fake interviews and award acceptance speeches; you still talk to yourself in the mirror occasionally.

J.T. Yorke — Your penis is abnormally large but you didn’t figure out what to do with it for a long, long time.

Mia Jones — You’d probably be screwed if you weren’t so good looking.

Joseph Jeremiah — You desperately wish high school never ended.

Toby Isaacs — You’ve read The Game and accidentally employ pick-up tactics when you’ve had too much to drink.

Ashley Kerwin — Your nail polish is perpetually chipped.

Jimmy Brooks — You have a lot going for you, but you’re impotent. TC mark

    Would have rather seen this done with the original Degrassi Characters.  But I’m a purist that way.

    “Who are you? Look, mister, I’m just a Canadian high school student trying to get by. I don’t know what you’re going on aboot, but I think it’s objectively creepy for any ‘adult’ to take as much interest in my life as you seem to–what did you say? How did you know that? Are you…stalking me? Look, fella, I’m just gonna walk away here, but please, please leave me al–WHAT? On the internet? About me? Like, stories about he and I…doing it? You write them so you can–WHAAAT? I NEED AN ADULT, SOMEONE HELP ME, I NEED AN ADULT!”

    Ellie’s should’ve been more complex than just moving to NYC. She’s a way more complex character.

  • Lilym

    alternately jimmy brooks: you like Drake ‘ironically’

  • Lilym

    alternately Jimmy Brooks: you like Drake “ironically”

    I’m glad I’m not the only 20something who watches Degrassi. Also, I’m glad you didn’t include any of the newest characters. They all suck and should never be anyone’s favorite.
