* The BBC TV series 'Series/'NewTricks'' has an episode where Detective Superintendent Sandra Pulman was afraid to go to her High School re-union, eventually revealing that it was because she was the school Alpha Bitch. A colleague persuaded her to go, assuring her that people forget these things over the years. However, when she arrived, someone had drawn a devil's horns & beard in red lipstick on her photo in the lobby and she left in a hurry!

** Played with in Jenna and Melissa at times. In 3x24; it is shown that the two of them are [[spoiler: working together, alongside]] Shana, but it's unclear as to who is calling the shots, though Melissa seems to fit the trope best in this situation.

* Cassie Lynn Nubbles from ''FamilyMatters''. As Steve Urkel put it, she was "the poster child for useless people".

* Twist from ''{{Spaced}}'', a post-high-school version. Twist is attractive and fashionable, but she works in a dry cleaners and seems to have only one "friend", Daisy, whom she showers with back-handed compliments. Daisy doesn't seem to notice that Twist is an awful friend until the end of the show.

* Chanel in the upcoming ''Series/ScreamQueens2015''. From the teasers alone, it can be gathered that she's named after a line of expensive handbags, and in early promos the name of her sorority was literally [[CountryMatters KNT]] (it was later [[{{Bowdlerise}} changed to KKT]]), which leaves little guess as to what sort of character she's supposed to be.

** Paige Michalchuk is, strangely, a RichBitch who isn't rich. She's the head cheerleader (who takes credit for other girls' work), and she's a horrendous snob toward anyone less popular than herself. But when school is out, she has to work a minimum-wage job. Paige became a subversion of this trope. While she had a lot of moments setting this trope up, they peppered in PetTheDog moments to keep her from being irredeemable, mostly with Spinner, Alex, and J.T.

* In ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', Jackie is a stereotypical example of this trope (although when ''her'' karmic retribution comes, it's a bit more severe than growing up to lead an unfulfilled life). The second season has Debbie, who is a copy of Jackie right down to being the blond head cheerleader.

* From ''Series/VeronicaMars'', three words: Madison Freaking Sinclair. Vapid, stupid, and rude to everyone she knows, extremely entitled because of her rich parents, and absolutely vindictive towards people she's taken a dislike to, particularely Veronica. In TheMovie, even 10 years after they've all left high school she still thinks she's God's gift to the world and perceives V to be her personal nemesis.

* Amber in ''Series/HannahMontana''. She's not a ditz, though her sidekick Ashley fills that purpose.

* In ''Series/NightAndDay'', Kate Ellis and Jane Harper both embody this at times, but the show is also careful to depict their vulnerable, human sides. Parallels between the two girls are drawn in an episode focusing on Kate’s birthday, which mirrors the show’s first episode (centred on Jane’s birthday) in several respects – and even features Kate, who has never met Jane, being berated by her in a daydream sequence.
