Tonight, we bid farewell to the inaugural season of 'NYC Prep,' Bravo's attempt at creating a real-life version of the CW's 'Gossip Girl.'

Between P.C.'s drama and Camille's Ivy League dreams, 'Prep' secretly became one of our favorite guilty pleasures of the summer. To celebrate, here are 6 things we learned from this season:

Sebastian1.) Hairflipping Isn't Sexy

Sebastian's signature move may lure the girls in, but you also need to have social etiquette skills if you really want to hook up with two, maybe three girls in one night. Instead, it turned out hair-flipping and bad French were the only tricks in this purported playboy's bag ... and we got to watch him crash and burn two, maybe three times in one season.

Kelli2.) Prep Early for College
Planning to visit Harvard anytime soon? Make sure to have your entire life mapped out ahead of time -- just in case you run into Scarlett, an alumni who majored in Russian Literature and passive-aggressiveness. Also remember to keep your expectations very, very low. "I wish you the best of luck getting in here, although of course, you probably won't," she told Camille.

Jessie3.) Jessie Is the Hero
Jessie began this season as 'NYC Prep''s resident queen bee, the cast member whom everyone (including us) feared. But as the season moved forward, she let down her guard and actually showed signs of a rational, hard-working and caring human being -- three things you couldn't say about anyone else on the show. If P.C. ever gets his act together, he'll only have Jessie to thank.

PC4.) Second Row Is So Last Season
If you're lucky enough to attend fashion week with P.C., make sure to get a spot in the front row -- unless you want to be subjected to pouting and below-the-belt name calling. Also: Gawking at celebrities is so unfashionable, so if you see someone like Amanda Bynes, act natural.


Camille5.) Never Question Camille
When out on a date with Camille, keep the conversation to relevant, topical items (ie, Harvard; SAT scores). Never ask about her hobbies or how the night is going, and never repeat your questions. Otherwise, the night is only going to get worse (or better, if Dan's sly eyebrow-raising is to be believed).


Taylor6.) Don't Mess With Public School Girls
If you're going to date outside your comfort zone, be prepared: Public school girls are tougher than you might think. Sebastian learned this the hard way via Taylor, a no-nonsense vegan who refused to fall for his -- or any other guys' (Cole!) -- tricks. No wonder P.C. is such a fan.
