About This Quiz

It would seriously stink to be stuck in prison! For most people, prison is a distant planet and one of the scariest places in the world. And in the series "Orange is the New Black," Piper Chapman is most people. 

"Orange is the New Black" is the Netflix hit series about a woman convicted of a crime years after she committed it and the time she spends incarcerated in Litchfield prison. While the show originally followed Piper Chapman to show the effect prison has on an otherwise "normal" person, it has broadened into the lives of dozens of characters and how they landed themselves in the slammer.

For example, can you name the hot-job lingerie company that was started at Litchfield? Or, why does Piper land in the SHU in season one?

These are only a sample of the questions a true "Orange is the New Black" fan can answer. So, how bad are you? Take this quiz and see how you stack up against the women of Litchfield!
