Wes is a former Dalton Academy student, first appeared in Never Been Kissed as a member of the Dalton Academy Warblers. He is one of Blaine Anderson's friends and along with him and David, catches Kurt Hummel "spying" on the glee club and the school. Kurt first thought that Wes was gay due to the stereotype of the school; however, Blaine states that Wes has a girlfriend. In Special Education, it is revealed that both he and David are two of three upperclassmen in the council that leads the Warblers, as they do not have a director. However, David continues on from Season Two to the later seasons, while Wes graduates in Season Two, implying that David is a few years below Wes.
He is portrayed by Telly Leung.
Wes and the Warblers gave their schoolmates a little performance, singing Teenage Dream at the Senior commons in Never Been Kissed. After the performance, he, Blaine, and David talk to Kurt over some lattes. Kurt was a little wary that they might beat him up for spying, but Wes assures him that they weren't going to beat him up. Kurt asked if they were all gay, to which the three laugh. Blaine reveals that although he was, Wes and David have girlfriends. Wes tells Kurt that in Dalton Academy, everyone gets treated the same, no matter what they are. "It's pretty simple," Wes added. When Kurt almost breaks down, Blaine asks the two to leave them for a while. Wes tells Kurt to take it easy, before leaving.
As the episode runs, the Warblers offer Kurt the chance to audition for solos. For the audition, Kurt sang Don't Cry for Me Argentina. Wes could be seen clapping by the end of the performance, along with the rest of the Warblers (Kurt didn't get in, though).
During Sectionals, the Wablers performed Hey, Soul Sister. When the results of the competition were being announced, Wes and the other Warblers waited nervously. It was a tie with New Directions, and being the Council, Wes, David and Thad received their prize on behalf of the team.Bills, Bills, Bills.
At the Lonely Hearts Dinner at Breadstix, as Kurt introduces himself, Wes and the other Warblers walk into stage. They perform Silly Love Songs. In the middle of the Warbler's performance, the students went down the stage and danced with the diners during the humming interlude part (Wes could be seen cuddling up to Santana.) During the end part of the song, the Warblers go back to the stage.Animal. As Blaine was introducing them to their sister school, Wes and the other Warblers could be seen on the side of the stage by the window in line with the rest of the Warblers. As soon as the music starts, they run up the stairs. By the last chorus the Warblers and Wes are dancing with the girls of Crawford Country whilst bubbles and beach balls filled the warehouse.
Wes and The Warblers sing Somewhere Only We Know to Kurt to give farewell. This is the last appearance of Wes on Glee.
Wes seems to be a loyal student of Dalton Academy, as he is seen stating random facts complete with dates about the school and the Warblers. Being an upperclassman and one of the members of the Council, he is somewhat seen as uptight, although he rarely argues with his fellow Warblers and keeps his cool (unlike David and Thad). It can be concluded that he is the Council Head, since the power of the gavel was bestowed upon him, and he sits in the center of the council desk. He is also the one in charge of officially opening and closing Warbler meetings, and seems to have the final word on decisions made by the team.
Wes follows a strict "Majority rules" principle. His role as a person of authority in the Warblers could be seen in some instances, where he is seen to be somebody in charge of the choir who marks time and signals the Warblers when and how to sing. Wes is clearly not a homophobe, one of his best friends being openly gay. He also seems to value Kurt's suggestions and talent, and seems overall to be a kind and caring individual, as well as one who can be trusted to make the right decisions and be granted a power status in a group of individuals.
We're not going to beat you up.
In our oldest tradition for our newest Warbler... an actual warbler.
—Wes, "Special Education"
This bird is a member of an unbroken line of canaries who've been in Dalton since 1891. It's your job to take care of him, so he can live to carry on the Warbler legacy. Protect him. That bird is your voice.
—Wes to Kurt, "Special Education"
The Warblers haven't performed in an informal setting since 1927, when the Spirit of St. Louis overshot the tarmac and ploughed through seven Warblers during an impromptu rendition of "Welcome to Ohio, Lucky Lindy"
