While there's no doubt that Andrea Zuckerman was the absolute lamest (see pic above), she was smart as they come and on a fast-track to Yale. But of course, so the gang could stick together, the 90210 producers sent her to California University, a fictional institution that apparently was quite popular in 90s.
While the show did reference she would later get her life together, the decision to send her to the middling Cal U led to a drastic 180 in Andrea's life. No longer was she the brainy teacher's pet with one eye on the school paper, the other one on Brandon's dreamy sideburns. Her aspirations and ambition crushed, Zuckerman shacked up with the caterer, filled her uterus with a child, and dropped out of school. Way to ruin her life, Aaron Spelling.
*Also, we'd like to wish the actress who played Andrea, Gabrielle Carteris, a happy 70th birthday.
