Trisha Kirby is a sixth grade girl from the season 2 episode, "Bad Girl".

Background

Trisha is revealed to be a bad, troublemaking, uneducated girl who briefly dates Dustin Brooks. She had to retake sixth grade, and is paired up with Dustin for science. Dustin's sister Zoey is not happy about this so she tries to get Dustin and Trisha to separate. However, Zoey promised that she wouldn't butt into Dustin's personal business, so she sends Chase in to try to get them to break up. Unfortunately, Chase trying to explain Dustin's too young for Trisha goes in an entirely different direction, causing Trisha to think that Chase likes her, and ultimately kissing him. When Chase tells this to Zoey, he and Zoey try to pretend they're boyfriend and girlfriend. Trisha is not convinced, and tells them to kiss each other. Before they can, however, Dustin attacks Chase. Trisha finds this manly, but Dustin rejects her, leaving Trisha single again. It is unknown what happens to Trisha after her breakup with Dustin since she never appears again. However, considering her troublemaking personality, it is likely she was expelled from PCA after the episode.

Portrayal

Trisha is portrayed by Jennette McCurdy, who also plays Sam Puckett on Dan Schneider's series, iCarly and Sam & Cat, and Pinky Turzo on another Nickelodeon show, True Jackson, VP.

Trivia

  • On iCarly, a similarly titled episode with a similar plot is aired. They both involve a main character dating a "bad person", in iCarly's case a boy. Ironically, Jennette McCurdy is present in both episodes. Furthermore, both episodes were in the second season in their respective shows.
  • She somewhat resembles her characters Sam Puckett in iCarly, and Pinky Turzo in True Jackson, VP. Sam and Pinky are rude and aggressive, similar to Trisha.
  • She is in the sixth grade with Dustin, despite being a year older. This is because she was held back a year.
