The Desperate Wannabes are a clique at North Shore High School.

Like their nickname states, the members of these group are always attempting to impersonate someone else's behaviour and sense of fashion. This was seen when Bethany Byrd said that she bought army pants and flip-flops, just because Cady Heron wore them in school.

Members of this group include Bethany Byrd, Jessica Lopez, 'Shortest Girl', and another unnamed student.
