Things I'm Obsessed With: Chuck Bass


I don’t know if anyone that reads this blog even watches Gossip Girl, but since it’s a show that’s blog themed, I, of course, adore it. One of the reasons I love GG so much is the voice of Gossip Girl is Miss Veronica Mars herself, Kristin Bell. But the other reason is of course, that God among high school boys, Chuck Bass. Even that name—“Chuck Bass” is so sexy…who wouldn’t love a name that brings to mind images of ground beef and fish?

Anyway, if you’ve ever seen an episode, any description of Chuck is inadequate, so you might as well stop reading now. He is played by Mr. Ed Westwick from jolly old England, but does an amazing American accent with a certain, how the French say, I don’t know what…BUT his delivery is always dry, mean, cynical, and generally hilarious.

David hated Chuck at first, but only because Chuck tried to rape lil’ J—I mean give the guy a break, lil’ J was probly askin’ for it. Let it just be known that I return to Gossip Girl every Monday night with my eyes batting at Chuck, and the meaner he is, the more I love him.

More about Mr. Bass, and a video after the Jump:


Here’s Chuck’s Wikipedia background:
"Charles Bartholomew Bass was born to the late Bartholomew "Bart" Bass, a self-made billionaire who owns the New York Palace Hotel, where Chuck resides. Both of his parents are now deceased, as of It's a Wonderful Lie, leaving Chuck with only his step-family, the van der Woodsens and uncle, Jack Bass. Chuck attends the prestigious St. Jude's School for Boys with long-time best friend Nate Archibald. He is the resident bad boy of the Upper East Side, originally portrayed as a Casanova type. After sleeping with Blair Waldorf in Victor, Victrola, he has taken on a softer side, and is often shown to be nearly monogamous in light of his love for Blair. He is the male version of Blair when it comes to manipulation and revenge, the two often coming together to form cruel and sometimes elaborate plans for vengeance and self-gain. Fan-favorites, they have proven to be the sharpest, wittiest characters on the show, and are thus often described as equals. In the second season, Chuck reveals to Dan Humphrey that his mother died giving birth to him. With the tragic death of his father, Chuck has essentially come full circle in his character development, now the same dangerous lothario he was introduced as at the start of the show."

His American accent is as convincing as Dominic West's on The Wire.

And unfortunately, we've started Monday night GG almost every week here.

Everything about him ( the way he moves, his facial expressions, that hot, hot, hot voice) screams SEX!!! And the fact that he is so fiercely loyal to Blair just makes him hotter! There is no other couple on tv that has as much chemistry as Blair & Chuck
