There are a lot of amazing group costumes out there, but let’s be honest: there’s often a terrible part that some unlucky friend has to play. Maybe you’re the new kid on the proverbial block or perhaps you just want to spare all your friends of the same fate, but either way, these are the members of each cast you probably don’t want to be for Halloween.
1. Backstreet Boys: Howie
I remember him existing, sort of! Well, I remember hearing his name, at least. I knew he wasn’t the blonde one or the group’s token pierced guy.
2. Backstreet Boys: Kevin
I can’t just pick on Howie. Nobody wanted to be Kevin, either, let’s be honest here. One might argue Kevin comes in last place because he kept that silly goatee so f’ing long.
3. N*Sync: Chris
I’ll always wonder if the label asked him to get this hair or if he did it himself so people would stop cropping him out of pictures.
4. Spice Girls: Sporty
Originally, I said Scary Spice, but then I realized that those weird horn things she wears are vaguely back in style due to Miley Cyrus. Sporty was always my least favorite in attire and in Spice World, which was obviously a very accurate depiction of their personalities.
5. Game Of Thrones: Theon
I won’t spoil it for anybody who hasn’t watched much, but basically, nobody really likes you and you suck.
6. Miley Cyrus’ Style Evolution: Any Miley that does not involve twerking and/or teddy bears and/or nudity.
Because if you can’t look remarkably stupid, what’s the point? And absolutely nobody wants to be Billy Ray. C’mon now.
7. Scooby Doo gang: Fred
Fred was an asshole and everybody knew it. He wasn’t the smart one or the stoned one or the cute one or the dog or the extra tiny dog (that, by the way, is the order in which I rank how much I’d want to play them). He was pretty much useless unless there was some off-screen benefits being given, like cookies. No, clearly, Fred slept his way onto the show.
8. Destiny’s Child: That other girl
Okay, okay, her name is Michelle. But I had to actually look it up, unlike most of this list.
9. 98 Degrees: Justin
Another one I had to look up because I had literally no idea who he is. He wasn’t even included in some of their promos involving shirtlessness.
Fun fact: 98 Degrees was my second concert ever. Oh, to be young and in 3rd grade…
10. Disney Princesses: Sleeping Beauty
Aurora was clearly the most boring one. She was literally a snooze. To be fair, it’s not her fault she was written as an exceptionally boring and helpless character, but wouldn’t it be infinitely more fun to play a warrior or a mermaid?
11. Parks And Rec: Jerry
Poor guy gets no love. :(
12. DC Comics: Aquaman
I hate the ocean and any water where I can’t see the bottom so I feel no sympathy for this fellow.
13. Seinfeld: Newman
I’m a little tentative on this one because I feel like people also don’t really want to be Jerry, either, but it’s still not anybody’s fave.
14. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Donatello
Smart, sure, but dude was so boring. Plus, Corey Feldman played him and that’s just not really a good attribute to have going for you.
15. Mad Men: Peggy
Beautiful, smart and awesome, but when it comes to costumes, nobody really wants to style themselves like you. To be fair, nobody wants to be almost any of the guys besides Don or Roger, either, so they’re the real last finishers.
