Top Ten Best Orange Is the New Black Characters

The greatest characters from the very popular Netflix original series.

The Top Ten

1 Galina "Red" Reznikov
2 Nicky Nichols

Greatest badass


3 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

The best character on television
