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: You still love her, huh?
Chuck: I can't imagine the day I won't.
Nate: Look, the polls close in a few hours. Can't you just wait?
Vanessa: I wish I could! This is not some high school thing with Blair and the mean girls, this is someone running for public office, Nate.
