We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which main character from a TV show kind of sucked, and their responses didn't disappoint!

Warner Bros. Television

Here are just a few of the surprising responses:

🚨Some submissions contain series spoilers.🚨

1.Archie Andrews — Riverdale

<div><p>"As a character, he doesn't have much depth. He's the least interesting main character and consistently makes the worst, and most predictable decisions. He's also a hothead who always seems to make situations worse." — <a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/jaladhihpatel" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Jaladhi Patel" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><b><u>Jaladhi Patel</u></b></a></p></div><span> The CW</span>

2.June Osborne — The Handmaid's Tale

<div><p>"After Season 1, she just sucks the life out of <i>The Handmaid’s Tale</i> with her impulsivity and rash decisions.

3.Jim Halpert — The Office

<div><p>"The more I watch it the more I dislike his character. He is a bully to Dwight. He treated Karen like shit — remember when he didn’t want her to live on the same street as him?! That was ridiculous. He yelled at Pam because she didn’t record a recital on her phone properly when he was just pushing his insecurities of not being there on her. He should have been straight up with her instead of trying to keep the truth from her." — <a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/madnbryant91" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:madeebee" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><u><b>madeebee</b></u></a></p></div><span> NBC</span>

38.Ross Poldark — Poldark

<div><p>"I like the show a lot because it's a beautiful and dramatic story. But he is honestly the most frustrating protagonist I've ever encountered. Ross constantly ignores the advice of his wife and friends — who are usually right — and somehow gets away with it."</p><p><b>—</b><a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/delorienaz" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:delorienaz" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><b>delorienaz</b></a></p></div><span> PBS</span>

39.Elizabeth Keen — The Blacklist

<div><p>"People have been complaining about her for years, but I was fine with her until this season. She's been gone for most of the episodes and I haven't enjoyed the show this much in years. I tried rewatching some older episodes to compare and I think I finally see it. Elizabeth's wishy-washy and whiny. Every choice that she makes is the wrong one. I hope that she never comes back."</p><p><b>—</b><a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/gern_blanston" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:gern_blanston" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><b>gern_blanston</b></a></p></div><span> NBC</span>

40.Tori Vega — Victorious

<div><p>"Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the show and all the other characters but she didn't really have many redeeming qualities. Tori got annoyed very quickly at her friends and anyone else who didn't agree with her opinions. She was also quite boring and KISSED A GUY WHO HAD A GIRLFRIEND! I do love Victoria Justice, but Tori was probably the worst character I think she has ever played."</p><p><b>—</b><a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/bfpurplekoala6" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:bfpurplekoala6" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><b>bfpurplekoala6</b></a></p></div><span> Nickelodeon</span>

41.Emma Swan — Once Upon a Time

<div><p>"She was just such an entitled character, who was frequently in the wrong but would always paint herself as a victim.

42.Dr. Jason Bull — Bull

<div><p>"The main character is insufferable, and somehow everything always goes perfectly his way.

44.Joan Clayton — Girlfriends

45.Gina Linetti — Brooklyn Nine-Nine

<div><p>"She has a way of making everything about her, regardless of how other characters were treated, and she was rarely called out on it. Don't get me wrong, Gina is a fun character in small doses. The show never calls out how she harasses Terry on a regular basis, even though it explores themes like racial profiling and gender-power imbalance, and it’s even worse when you realize what Terry Crews has been subjected to in his career."</p><p>—<a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/jbmasta" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:jbmasta" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">jbmasta</a></p></div><span> NBC</span>

46.Darrin Stephens — Bewitched

<div><p>"He was a stick-in-the-mud jackass who treated Samantha horribly anytime something didn't go his way. I get that he was the driving device behind a lot of the plotlines but he was so insufferable and couldn't let Samantha enjoy anything without berating her about witchcraft (unless it benefited him). Every single episode he'd call her and say, 'Surprise! I'm bringing home a client tonight in two hours. Whip up a delicious gourmet meal for everyone, but don't use any witchcraft or I'll yell at you!'"</p><p><b>—</b><a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/byndilaupsteen" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:byndilaupsteen" class="link rapid-noclick-resp"><b>byndilaupsteen</b></a></p></div><span> ABC</span>

<div><p>"I've never found a main character so insufferably annoying before her. Every decision she made in the first season was stupid and reckless, and yet she never took any responsibility for her actions.
