Last Shift Lunch Break: Queen Bees 

Happy Friday and Ramadan Mubarak, Degrassholes! We’re taking a little lunch break here at The Dot (even though two of your hosts were fasting during the recording and thus there are several mentions of tacos and pizza throughout the episode, bear with us please…) to bring you a new surprise minisode! To celebrate the new musical Mean Girls movie released earlier this year, we’re talking favorite Queen Bees of Degrassi! Because who doesn’t want an excuse to talk about our favorite instances of bad bitch behavior?

What makes someone a “Queen Bee” à la Regina George? And who in Degrassi: TNG/Next Class lore is the ultimate one? Is it Paige Michalchuk because of her ability to destroy someone, their family, and their ancestors with a devastating one liner? Holly J. Sinclair because she’s not only the meanest in the room but also the smartest (and most likely to be more successful than you’ll ever be)? Or is it our dark horse, Zoe Rivas, who has the uncanny ability to manage to be something so many people desperately long to achieve in the age of social media – the main character of EVERYONE’S lives even after getting fired from a tv show…? Listen to find out who we choose!

And don’t worry, we don’t forget to talk about each of our Degrassi Queens’ sidekicks, the Gretchen Wieners’ and Karen Smiths of Degrassi Community School. Never forget your backup singers. They’re there to make you look better.

Finally, we discuss the “failed Queen Bees” of Degrassi, who are cringeworthy at best and the reason the show was canceled at worst (Frankie Hollingsworth, we’re looking at you).

So, grab a taco, a slice of pizza, and pour one out for Angie “Big Ange” Jeremiah, who just may be the meanest of them all…
