If you watch Southern Charm, you know how addicting it is and the main reason that I tune in every Monday night is to see what Thomas Ravenel is up to. At first, I didn’t really get why he was on this show because he seems like a pretty random person to be in this friend group and the show’s cast, but after I watched the first episode, one thing was so clear to me: Thomas makes this show.
Sure, the other cast members are great, but Thomas is the one who really makes Southern Charm as a outrageous as it is. We have his life to thank for all the twists and turns and that is why I believe that he is the one that people should credit with the show’s success. In fact, I think that T-Rav is the best cast member on Southern Charm and came up with eight reasons to back up my opinion.

I’m not saying that Thomas is the best person on the planet, but he is definitely bringing the most to this series. And in all honesty, most of my points about him being the cast member are not even compliments. A great person does not necessarily make a great reality star and Thomas has struck a perfect balance.
These are the reasons why Thomas really is the most valuable cast member.
He Gives Everyone Something To Talk About
Try to name a story line that involves any other cast member. Try to think of two. It's pretty difficult isn't it? That's because this show basically revolves around Thomas, and for the most part, the other stars get their screen time when they make comments about Thomas and his antics.
He Is Always Down To Party
Thomas is always ready to have a good time. He never misses a party and always has a drink in his hand. Once he's had a few, he really goes in, too. He is hitting on every available woman and insulting his closest friends. The man couldn't be boring even if he tried.
There Is No Logical Reason For Him To Be In This Friend Group
I will never get over the inclusion of Thomas in this social circle. It's not as if he grew up hanging out with these people who are significantly younger than he is. I love how he's always partying and hanging out with these people. It makes no sense for him to be a part of that friend group and it's pretty ironic how the oldest dude in the cast is often the most childish cast member.
There Is Always Some New Drama With Kathryn
Southern Charm is basically the Thomas and Kathryn show at this point. It's never clear where Thomas stands in regard to his relationship with Kathryn Dennis. They are always so up and down and it is something that is never in the background. Their interaction is always the center of attention and I wouldn't have it any other way.
He's Insulted/Offended All Of The Cast Members
In general, this should not be a positive thing, but it really does make for entertaining television. Thomas has gone way too far with pretty much every cast member and it pretty much always happens in some sort of dinner party setting. It may not be nice, but it's always interesting to watch and it gives the other cast members something to do when they have to defend themselves against whatever insults he's thrown out there.
He Has No Shame
This statement applies to so many aspects of Thomas's existence. He has an outrageous wardrobe, he had children with someone decades younger than him, he hits on every girl at every party, and he says what's on his mind. The dude just does not care what anyone thinks and I can't get enough of watching it.
He Is Petty On Social Media
Again, this is not a positive thing, but I just love how petty Thomas is. He may be on the senior end of the cast, but he is far from being the most mature. He's definitely not the kind of person who thinks before he speaks (or types) and he's willing to hit below the belt, especially whenever he is at odds with Kathryn. Their Twitter rants against each other are pretty infamous.
He Is Endearing
Even with a lot of the questionable things that Thomas has done, he just has such an endearing personality that makes it easy for everyone in his life to forgive him and hand out second, third, and fourth chances for redemption. Plus he's a reality star, so it makes sense for him to have a charming personality.
