Origin of the term
The slang Chad originates from Illinois in Chicago.
In the 90’s, it was used as a derogatory term for successful, young men, be it athletic, business or with the ladies.
In the early 2000’s it was described on the internet as the high school or college alpha male that likes to pick up women.
The full name Chad Thundercock was first introduced in 2013 by user Dr. James Russell on Urban Dictionary.
Spread of the term
The netflix series “Blue Mountain State” features the football team captain “Thad”, clearly inspired by Chad, and many other forms of media feature a similar character.
Today, the term is still considered derogatory, and is rarely used by a “successful alpha male” about himself. It is more often used by other men, who is or isn’t jealous of the Chad.
