About This Quiz

"The O.C." had it all: supportive surfer parents, amazing pieces of real estate (burning down), wild beach parties and drama, drama, drama! It also had one of the most appealing teen casts ever: quiet, intense Ryan Atwood, a bruiser from the wrong side of the tracks; gorgeous free spirit Marissa Cooper, a troubled socialite with a taste for bad company; nerdy heartthrob Seth Cohen, an inexplicably unpopular comic book artist; and bubbly babe Summer Roberts, a whip-smart cool girl with a soft heart hiding behind her defenses.

The writers put these characters through so much, from earthquakes and overdoses to love triangles, accidental murders and society fashion shows. Whether you loved them or hated them, the teens of "The O.C." certainly made Southern California look like a thrilling place to live.

If you've ever fantasized about being a Newport Beach resident yourself, this is the quiz for you! We're going to ask you about how you'd dress, feud and date if you lived in Orange County.
