Tori Vega is a Pick Me

Kae Lajorda, Writer

We all know Tori Vega as one of the main characters from VICTORIOUS.

Now, maybe in our middle school minds, we looked at Tori with rose-tinted glasses, but now, sitting on the floor of our dorm, mouths dropped wide open, we clearly see that she is awful. Why was Tori the star of the show? What made them create the lead of a children’s show to be so horrible? Who was going to tell her that Cat and Jade had more talent in their pinky’s than she did in the entire show?

From the very beginning, Tori flirts with beck, who she happens to soon learn is Jade’s boyfriend. You read that right; Jade’s boyfriend. All within the first episode, just to get revenge on Jade, she kisses Beck right in front of her face. Tori being the worst.

Let’s not forget when Cat gets a new boyfriend, that just so happens to be her ex and sabotages their date by exploding a cheese fountain onto the two of them. Talk about acting out of desperation, am I right?

We also have to remember how ungrateful Tori is when everyone around her is helping her constantly. How about during her sister Trina’s “Birth Week”? Tori can’t come up with a gift for Trina. Andre ends up writing, playing, and gathering other people to help Tori sing a song for Trina. Not once does Tori thank Andre for doing all of the work for her sister’s birthday.

Finally, because somebody has to say it, Tori just so happens to fall shorter than others in her level of talent. Don’t get me wrong, Tori does “make it shine” a good deal, but compared to some of those around her, one might even say she doesn’t deserve all of the praise she gets.
