Nate Archibald is a wealthy, good-looking lacrosse player at St. Jude's school.

His mother is a French socialite and his father is a former Navy captain. Nate smokes copious amounts of marijuana and was once caught and sent to rehab for buying a dimebag in the park. Tough luck on that one.

Archibald  has dated a number of girls including Jenny Humphrey, Serena, Georgina Spark, and Lexie -  but his only serious relationship has been with his on again/off again girlfriend Blair.

Although Nate was originally planning to attend Yale University and play lacrosse, he eventually left to sail across the world with his father's Navy mentor, Captain Chips White, to figure his life out.

Nate: It's not your fault.
Blair: Do you love me? (Nate can't look her in the eyes) You should deal with your father. He needs you. You know what? I don't.
