Tara Ganz is one of Hayley Ferguson's friends. She is the secondary antagonist in Freak the Freak Out.


Along with Hayley, Tara is first introduced flirting with the guys, André in her case. After Jade returned to confront Hayley about flirting with Beck, Tara noticed that the gang went to Hollywood Arts High School causing both to look down on them all. Jade and Cat then challenged Haley and Tara to a singing contest. Although the audience clearly preferred Cat and Jade in the competition, she and Tara always win the competitions since Hayley's dad is the owner of Karaoke Dokie.

After Jade and Cat convince Hayley and Tara to compete for the audience's votes against another person of their choosing, Tori's performance of Freak the Freak Out, under the disguise of Louise Nordoff easily beats them. Though Hayley meekly pointed out that the audience hadn't voted yet, the crowd quickly voted Tori as the winner. As a result of their loss, Hayley and Tara were forced to "babysit" Trina, who had recently gotten her wisdom teeth removed.

In Tori Goes Platinum, Tara makes a cameo appearance auditioning for the Platinum Music Awards by singing Give It Up.


She, like Hayley, has very little singing talent, although mistakenly thinks she is very good. She is a rather smug individual, dismissing Hollywood Arts as a school for "wannabes." She seems to be a fan of Ginger Fox, because at Karaoke Dokie, she and Hayley sing two songs by her. Like Hayley, she didn't appear to be intimidated by Jade.

Despite all this, she, along with Tara, is, according to Cat, not as mean as Jade.


  • Tara was defeated by Tori in two different singing competitions.
  • Tara seems to be the "follower" of the friendship, as Hayley seems to be the leader of the two.
  • Tara is one of the many characters that got into a fight with Trina, the others being Hayley, Beck, Robbie, André, and Tori.
  • The actress who plays Tara is seen in Stage Fighting as "the hot blonde" who Rex sits down next to, although the character is not actually Tara, given her proclamation that Hollywood Arts is for wannabes.
  • Ironically, in her audition for the Platinum Music Awards, she sings Give It Up, the song that Cat and Jade performed against her and Hayley in the episode Freak the Freak Out.
  • The actress, Jamie Snow, has been in Dan's past show, The Amanda Show and also an extra on iCarly.
