Easily Rona. Kennedy at least wanted to learn to fight and defend herself. She made an effort to not be entirely reliant on Buffy. She was the only one not content with being a helpless girl.
I cut Rona, and the others, some slack now as I realize they're just 14 or 15 years old thrust into a war with enemies actively trying to kill them every day, and unlike Buffy, they possessed no enhanced strength or speed.
I have found and truly believe that there is nothing so bad it cannot be made better with a story.

You know though, Rona was bad, but she hadn't been part of any of this until the Bringers started coming for her; and then all of a sudden not only is her life in constant peril, she's being told by these complete strangers what to do, and the things they ask of her often puts her in even more danger and even gets her hurt, while others are dying around her. Make her a teenager on top of all that and yeah, there's going to be push back. I don't know that it excuses everything, but there it is.
Meanwhile, Kennedy's a snot from the very beginning; she's entitled acts like she knows better than everyone else. There's just something about her attitude that's grating right from the start; which seems to be expressed best by when she calls magic "fairy tale crap". Willow is one of the most powerful beings on the planet by that point, and Kennedy, for all she's invariably learned about the reality of the supernatural, seems to keep putting Willow down for it.
The one saving grace is an idea I thought recently, that given what we know with Kendra's history and indication that Potentials are removed from their families at an early age, Kennedy is probably compensating for growing up under the care of her Watcher; and her family being wealthy with multiple homes that have several wings to them is just something she made up as a coping mechanism.
