Gossip Girl Blair and Chuck or Blair and Dan

Video: Chuck vs. Dan — Who Is Better For Blair on Gossip Girl?

Gossip Girl returns this week after a short hiatus that left fans in the lurch regarding Blair's romantic fate. It seems as if she's getting more serious with Dan, but is Chuck really out of the picture for good? As fans take sides on the matter, BuzzSugar editors Becky Kirsch and Shannon Vestal debate who is better for Blair in this episode of The Buzz.

first of all compliments for the interview it was funny and u made a very good analysis of the whole situation and also my congrats are for the fact that you two talked bout this topic without arguing ahahaha which - let's say that - is quite a miracole nowadays xD xD xD by the way i'm a dair supporter... i love penn and leighton they're great actors and they really match well together ,i always have a smile on my face when i see them . I obviously can hide the fact that between blair and chuck and between dan and serena there's a strong connection....but their relationships belong to the past ...serena and chuck hurt dan and blair's feelings a lot of times, their love is profound but ...sick  ....i support dair because when blair is with dan she is happy she laughs, she is free to express herself , dan protects her ,guides her ,he's always been there for her when she needed to even when they weren't  friends ...and despite all they've got a lot of intellectual stuff in common which is a great thing...dan and blair should definitely end together they need and they deserve a pure and simple love.... DAIR FTW

Okay.....what is going on here??? First off, i would like to just stop with all this Chuck and Blair are Ross and Rachel??? Have you even seen Friends??? If you are going to compare Ross and Rachel to anyone it would be Dan and Serena not Chuck and Blair. Last time i checked, Ross was the geek that was in love with the most popular girl in school. He loved her for years and she eventually noticed him...um that's pretty much Dan and Serena's story since S1. So invalid argument!! Second, last time i checked Chuck Bass has slept with half of NY's women.  And how on earth would Blair have a long term relationship with Chuck rather than Dan? The longest Chuck and Blair lasted was a few months. I don't think that they would last, if she were to choose Chuck it will just be an endless on-again-off-again relationship and trust me when i say this that any girl,even Blair,  will get tired of it. Hell she got tired of all the games and crap she went through with Chuck in S2/3. I just feel like Blair has already gone through hell and all she needs in her life is some good. I'm not saying that Dan is saint, cuz he isn't, I'm just saying that she will treat her right and give her something that she has lacked for so long....happiness!!! I feel like Chuck's purpose, even since the beginning, is to have a family that appreciates him. I feel like he needs to come into terms with who he was and start to improve not change bc then he wouldn't be the Chuck Bass we know him as. And i don't believe that an apology, a dog, and few episodes of no scheming satisfy as a character growth, especially when you have done what he has in his past.  Same goes for Blair, she needs to find herself again, cuz since the hotel fiasco, she has lost a part of who she is.    I just feel that in order for Blair to get back to Blair, she can't be around someone who always brings her two steps back. Chuck can try all he wants, but i don't think he knows what he needs to do in order to give Blair what she wants. (emotionally) Have you noticed that mostly all Chair scenes are full of sadness?? That just gets tiresome for me at least. I think that alot of GG fans whether they are Chair or Dair or Derena, are bored of the same recycled SL every year. And I'm tired of hearing that Dan manipulated Blair? Are we all watching the same show? Last time i checked, Blair is the one that goes to Dan not the other way around. And let's face it, even if Dan wanted to, he wouldn't very good at it anyways, at least not against Blair. I just hope that Dan helps her become the new and improved Blair Waldorf that we love. Cuz the only time I have seen Blair being a glimpse of the Blair we know from earlier seasons, has been when she was insulting Dan or arguing with him.    BTW: Funny thing is that Chair fans can't really debate why Chuck is better other than they're Chuck and Blair or They're Meant to Be. Proof? Q: He slept with Jenny. A:........  Q: He sold her for a hotel. A:......... And don't give be BS saying that Dan hurt Blair with that video leak on her Bday. First they weren't even friends back then. Second, he was standing up and protecting his sister. And he felt horrible after that. Plus its not like Blair treated his that great either. I just feel like the things that Dan did to Blair (if you really think about it is really just the wedding video leak thing, which was for her btw) do not even come close to what Chuck has done to her!!! I have to admit that Chuck and Blair had their appeal in S1/2. But when i saw how much crap Blair had to go through to get Chuck and the things she went through while with him. I just don't see what the point is? Its not like Chuck is some great person to have. If you have to work that hard to keep something, then maybe its not yours to keep.    So answer to your question. Who is better for Blair? Dan. What kinda of man does she need in her life? Dan. What kinda of man does she want? Chuck. Who will she choose?? Probably Chuck.

" And the fact that people are saying well Dan loves her for her...um last time i checked so did Chuck." Ed himself said Dan loves Blair more than Chuck.   " if the sex ain't good the relationship won't last, and the last time I checked Chuck and Blair's sex was AMAZING!!!" And the last time I checked, Chuck and Blair weren't together anymore.

I would have to say Dan only because it hasn't happened yet. Since there is only one more season of Gossip Girl left, that too a shortened season :/ , Chuck and Blair will eventually be back together for sure :)   Btw, Season 6 is indeed the last according to the producers...sucks, doesn't it?

The question is an insult for women. And I said WOMEN not little girls who think it's Blair and Chuck, Chuck and Blair because "OMG! Ed is hot" LMFAO!!   And by the way, Chair fans should stop giving their opinions with "we" and "no one"  cause, thanks God, there are people who don't approve that unhealthy and disgusting relationship (and they are not 13)

I like Dan, just not with Blair, well I like them as friends anyways. Chuck and Blair are on the same level. He's the king of the UES and she is the queen. They have been through so much together, yet still love one another. And the fact that people are saying well Dan loves her for her...um last time i checked so did Chuck. I mean he did give everything up that HE wanted because he wanter HER happy, even if it means her marrying someone else. And he loves her flaws and all. And they do spice everything up, even if it is just being extremely flirty with one another. And for people who says that sex is the only thing they have is totally not true but hey, sex is a large part of every relationship, and as much as I hate to admit it, if the sex ain't good the relationship won't last, and the last time I checked Chuck and Blair's sex was AMAZING!!!

 @nontugumedair But Penn acknowledged Chuck and Blair were EACH OTHER'S soulmates.. Chuck has loved and gotten Blair from the beginning. The REAL Blair, not the messed up, crazy one on screen now that no one recognizes. We want Real Blair with Chuck.

Chuck and Blair. They're the pairing most have loved and watched. No one's watching Blair and Dan because we're all grossed out by them. We want the real couple.

Even tho this doesn't require an answer more than "CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK" here is my comment:  CBare everything, exiting, passionate, compassionate, understanding, sharing life goals, smart and intellectual soulmates, partners in crime lobsters <33333 i cant tell how much i love CB and watching them. every scene is exiting with them. They are fun, dramatic, hot and so compelling. and they can actually manage to be all of those things in one scene! and this db thing is a real show killer. d managed ruin every relationship of him and look how he treats to those girls he actually been in love with. how can anyone root for him for any of his relationship? he is a horrible douche who never actually faces any consequences and gets what he wants, he is not an underdog here. not to mention how judgemental he is and not changed a bit since the S1! even the scene you put, shows how dan is horrible for her.  he wanted to have a relationship with her while knowing the risk of she is having (bankrupting her family). he manipulated and isolated her all season. kept secrets from her just to have her to himself. blair is not good this season either -thx to dan mostly- so only for season i can say that they actually deserve each other, and chuck and serena truly deserve better <3 db became their worstselves with each other. lol. chuck and serena on the other have been amazing adults.  they have grown up. and may i mention all the things chuck has done all selflessly for blair? and not just after he fall in love with her, not just this season!  all the strikes you count for chuck are true, but at least he owned up to them and payed for so long time! and those were exiting times actually. not like now. also this makes one of the reasons which makes D's strikes worst! also 3 strikes for him were not true. he has more (and only for this season I'm not even counting the times he acted horribly in previous seasons). what about the time he actually kept the secret of Louis helping him and causing Blair to break her engagement? He kept Chuck's situation as a secret when B asked him. Could he help B about her crisis? He enabled her fairyland actually. He wrote the vows and make her continue with the wedding and then he claims that he sent the video just to ruin the wedding he saw she didnt want in the first place after framing chuck and making her isolated from her friends. How hypocrite he is.   also he loved her for who she is? lol so much!!! "i dont want to change anything about us" Chuck to Blair in S2,  "its stupid of you to want her other than she is" Chuck  to Nate in S2, "you are special on your own, you dont need any other group to say" Chuck to Blair in S3. Look how he encourages her to become herself and now how D manipulated her to become her worstself, made ashamed of her wonderful self. THIS IS NOT EVEN BLAIR EFFING WALDORF! Dan to Blair in season 5 "I thought you have changed"  Also about your Rufly and DB parallel? Did you have amnesia and forget about DS? So funny. DB is not original at all. Can't you see how unnatural they are?    What they show and try to sell is very different things. And they can not sell to majority as it seems. and they only have thid CB vs DB thing to make buzz i guess. but there is no comparison, only a bad taste in our mouths.

What kind of a  hypocrite are you? he is a unique douche-bag i would never want to meet or be friends with. ughh   also about your Rufly and DB parallel? Did you have amnesia and forget about DS? Hellooo? So funny. DB is not original at all. Can't you see how unnatural they are?
