Who isn’t a little drawn to the weird girl in movies and TV shows? Look, I love my awful queen bees too, but there’s something about the odd chick that I can’t help but love. Whether she’s the most unpopular girl in school, misunderstood by her family, or she’s just mysterious with a biting personality, the odd girl out can be pretty alluring–no to mention super relatable. Sometimes alarmingly so.
There are so many amazing weird chicks in TV and movies that it’s impossible to put them all in one roundup, but here 10 of our favorites and we know they’re some of your faves as well.
Tina From Bob's BurgersWhat's better than weird teen girls with an overactive libido? Not only is Tina one of the funniest offbeat chicks on TV right now, she's someone that a lot of us can relate to whether we want to admit it or not. I'd totally read her smutty fan fiction, that's all I'm sayin'.Source: Fanpop
Effy From SkinsEffy's an interesting case because she's a self-imposed outcast in a pretty uncommon way: While people are drawn to her, she does whatever she can to push herself away from them. Effy's self-destructive tendencies became pretty old hat as Skins continued and I, admittedly, grew tired of the way the show sensationalized her lack of mental stability. Nevertheless, she's such a memorable character that there is no way that I could leave her off this list. .Source: Fanpop
Jordana From SubmarineJordana isn't exactly an outcast, but she's not popular by any stretch of the imagination. But as a pyro who hates mushy displays of affection and loves some light bullying, she's a bit of an oddball in the realm of female love interests. Even if you're not a fan of her, you've gotta at least love her amazing red coat.Source: IMDB
Lisa From The SimpsonsLisa's passion for anything and everything intellectual sometimes puts her at odds with her family and the town of Springfield as a whole. Honestly, it's that dedication to being shamelessly smarter than everyone else that makes me lover her to pieces. Source: The Atlantic
Alike From PariahAlike is a teenage girl who is slowly but surely affirming her sexuality as a butch lesbian. Her masculine clothes and quiet disposition make her an outcast at school, in her community and even in her own family. Despite it all, Alike is such a strong, admirable chick. If you haven't seen Pariah yet, do that ASAP.Source: AccessAtlanta
Allison From The Breakfast ClubAny chick who has a lunch consisting of bread and sugar is probably a huge weirdo. Allison, the basket case of The Breakfast Club, is that weirdo and I kinda love her for it. That is, before she got that awful makeover. Yikes.Source: Fanpop
Daria From DariaOh, Daria. The quintessential outcast of the 90s, Daria's sardonic view of the world around her is a huge factor to her unpopularity. But it's her deadpan, unenthusiastic observations about the world around her that make her so endearing to us.Source:Fanpop
Janis Ian From Mean GirlsJanis doesn't do herself many favors when it comes to her outcast status since, well, she's not exactly the nicest girl around. But does Janis really care? No, not really. And do we really care? No, not really. In fact, that's sorta why we love her, right?Source: Fanpop
Tai From CluelessWhen Tai first arrived in LA she was, as Dionne put it, "To' up." But it was Tai's naive nature, grungy clothes and attraction to a dude at the bottom of the high school hierarchy that made Tai--well--Tai. Even though Cher saved her from social suicide, I'm always going to love that part of Tai that was totally out of touch.Source: Fanpop
Macy From As Told By GingerGinger and her friends weren't very popular. But it was her friend Macy who was, by far, the geekiest of lot. I mean, we all remember the little seal girl dance, right? Right? She get's an award for the most lovable loser ever for that alone. Macy rocks, period. I honestly liked her better than Ginger anyway.Source: Youtube
