The Top Ten

1 Galina "Red" Reznikov
2 Nicky Nichols

Greatest badass


3 Poussey Washington

The best character on television

goat - mixtapeweezy

4 Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett

I have never thought that I would like Pennsatucky so much.

5 Alex Vause

Alex is definitely the best. She is witty, funny, sarcastic and she steals the show!

Alex is on fleek and better than all of the other characters by far... She can slay and doesn't take crap from anyone. I mean her eyebrows REALLY bother me but she knows how to put on a prison show. She knows how to fight too!

YAS SLAY QUEEN - JoshTheDrummerBoy


6 Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson
7 Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren
8 Lorna Morello

She's such a sweetheart.

9 Piper Chapman

She was kinda cool but doesn't deserve to be called the second best character, she was only in season 3. - Luke72New

She's doesn't deserve it. She didn't stick around that last long - JoshTheDrummerBoy

Portrayed by the very beautiful Ruby Rose. - MidKnight
