Ryan Murphy is having one hell of a year. His drama American Crime Story swept the Emmys. His horror anthology American Horror Story is back for its sixth installment, and tonight, the season 2 premiere of his campy Scream Queens returns. At last, America can now rest knowing Chanel Oberlin will be hurling insults at them from the comfort of their own television screens.
Chanel Oberlin, for those who have not been acquainted, is a Blonde Alpha Bitch who comes from a very long line of Blonde Alpha Bitches. This trope has given us Heather Chandler. It gave us Regina George. More regrettably, it gave Mandy Moore a chance to shed her “good girl” image in the early Aughts. The BABs perfect skin, quick wit, and penchant for matching co-ords lives on in Oberlin, despite being chased by a crazy axe-wielding murderer in a Red Devil costume.
We’ve rounded up our ten favorite Chanel Oberlin moments to get you excited for the season 2 premiere of Scream Queens.
