** Creator/ArianaGrande's fanbase was very insistent that this was the case for #2, and, in fact, continued to insist the case even after #2 was killed on screen, her dead body was located, multiple characters commented that she was dead, and a funeral was held with her being either buried or cremated after. Not helping due to the fact that her ghost (or Chanel's dream of her) made an appearance, which fueled the fire for speculation. There is talk that the character was meant to have a larger role, but it had to be cut down because Ariana had to go on tour.

** The Red Devil [[spoiler: Hester]] well and truly crossed it when they murdered Gigi. While a mass murderer from the start, up till then there was so much ambiguity, same as Boone. However killing the woman who raised them, immediately after they gave you a heartfelt speech about how you're the only family they have left, is too much.

** Sam's death. She claimed to have known who the Red Devil was, and offered to help him/her. Was she [[AintTooProudToBeg not too proud to beg]]? Or did she sincerely want to join him?* Assuming Boone was the Red Devil that killed her, Sam most likely assumed that since Boone was (to her knowledge) gay, that being LGBT trumped everything and that Boone would take her up on her offer to help him, since in theory, Boone was killing a bunch of heterosexual people and that he would be more than happy to have a fellow homosexual aiding him in his killing spree.

** Doctor Brock Holt. He's being constantly tormented by his evil transplant hand, over worked by Dean Munsch, stressed over trying to keep said hand from killing people- pointedly, Chanel- along with the pressure of being [[LizLemonJob the only actual doctor at the hospital]], and he's been made to look (by Cassidy) like the Green Meanie/flashback baby.

** One of the promos for Season Two ''heavily'' indicated that Chanel would be out for revenge against Hester or at the very least have some anger and hostility towards her, both of which would have been immensely entertaining. Instead, Chanel- who, it is worth mentioning, responded to Hester trying to steal her boyfriend and Chanel #5 allegedly turning her in for murdering Miss Bean by attempting to murder them or get them murdered- without much convincing allows Hester to live with her and the other Chanels (as a prison escapee, something that directly puts Chanel in danger of being tried for harboring a fugitive) and, [[CreatorsPet for some]] [[VillainSue reason,]] also praises Hester for her intelligence and compliments her on successfully framing The Chanels.

** [[AlphaBitch Chanel Oberlin]] is the biggest one, and there's three bases that came from her (vs. the usual two) One base ''adores'' her, loves that she's the lead of the show, and thinks she is hilariously bitchy. The second base finds her entertaining, but thinks she is far too unlikeable, bitchy, and one-dimensional to be the lead character; they find her incredibly overexposed, but would like her a lot more with a smaller role. The third base straight up hates her due to her unrepentant bitchiness, finding it more annoying than amusing. Being portrayed by Creator/EmmaRoberts makes her even more divisive, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment seeing that Emma herself is a very divisive person and actress.]] And she's only gotten more divisive as the show goes on. Her fans continue to praise her for being a royal bitch to everyone and also like to point out there's some scenes implying Chanel has HiddenDepths, such as defending Hester. On the other hand, her detractors points out that Chanel is becoming a hypocrite as she defends the same people she's bullied or, even worse, attempted to kill.
** Denise Hempville, the security guard assigned to protect the girls of Kappa Kappa Tau. Some fans [[EnsembleDarkhorse love her]], finding her to be among the funniest characters in her debut episode as well as her "GTFO" attitude towards the killer being present. On the other hand, a lot of fans [[TheScrappy utterly loathe her]], seeing her as a terribly written, obnoxious, and [[UncleTomfoolery racist]] stereotype, as well as a ripoff of Reese from ''Film/UrbanLegend''. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Again, this could be as much the actress as the character.]]
** Hester Ulrich. Some viewers find her psychopathic tendencies to be hilarious, and feel she steals every scene despite her small role, but a sizable amount of viewers also found her extremely psychopathic personality to be as creepy as the characters did. [[RunningGag Again,]] [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment the choice of actress could have something to do with this.]] She's become even more divisive as the show continues, with some fans loving Michele's performance and the plotline about her trying to replace Chanel, citing her as one of the most entertaining, original, and interesting characters of the show. On the flipside, a lot of fans are tired of her being a "wanna-be Chanel" (despite the two being very different characters) and find her BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch storyline to be redundant as there already is an AlphaBitch with Chanel Oberlin. [[RunningGag And, as said, there's also a large segment who just hates her because it's Lea Michele (not even because of her acting, because of the actress).]]

* MagnificentBastard:
** Hester. The whole season finale can be summed up as her explaining how she systematically manipulated the whole season ''and'' set up the Chanels to take the fall. And then she gets away with it! Until she confessed her crimes to Denise who recorded it, sending her to jail and setting Chanels free.
** Chanel has some moments of being this. Her unrepentant bullying and extreme wealth also help fans see her as one.


** Sam's death. She claimed to have known who the Red Devil was, and offered to help him/her. Was she [[AintTooProudToBeg not too proud to beg]]? Or did she sincerely want to join him?* Assuming Boone was the Red Devil that killed her, Sam most likely assumed that since Boone was (to her knowledge) gay, that being LGBT trumped everything and that Boone would take her up on her offer to help him, since in theory, Boone was killing a bunch of CIS-Gendered white people and that he would be more than happy to have a fellow homosexual aiding him in his killing spree.

* CounterpartComparison: The Chanels to The Plastics from Film/MeanGirls. The comparison was inevitable given the GirlPosse composed of RichBitch girls and the comedic tones in both Scream Queens and Mean Girls. Regina George and Chanel Oberlin are both the BlondesAreEvil AlphaBitch who are extremely HotBlooded and deal with an former outsider they brought into their cliche trying to usurp her- and they both have a MeaningfulName relating to their wealth and status. Gretchen Weiners and Chanel #5 are the high strung TheDragon ButtMonkey to Chanel/Regina, whose [[HollywoodHomely looks are subject to ridicule]] and who are driven to oppose Chanel/Regina due to being mistreated by them. Karen Smith can be compared to both Chanel #3- vacant CloudCuckoolander who ReallyGetsAround - and Chanel #2 - TheDitz largely left out of the main crutch of the plot. Either Grace or Hester are the Cady Heron.


*** Of course, Chanel herself also tends to qualify in this scenario. Whereas Chad has shown some redeeming qualities, she shows little to none. It's also worth noting that Chad doesn't worm his way back into good graces, she just gets down on her knees and begs him to take her back ([[{{Hypocrite}} while often complaining about him doing exactly what she does, no less]]). Its pretty hard to feel bad for Chanel being mistreated by Chad when she not only constantly, but willingly, with no coercion or manipulations, puts herself in the position to be mistreated again; while at the same time mistreating quite literally everyone else. It's also worth noting that when Chad promised to not cheat on Chanel, he stayed completely true to it. The difference is she actually asked him not to (vs. willingly let him walk all over her).
