On The Bold and the Beautiful, the CEO post is up for grabs at Forrester Creations, and there are a few good men and women who could totally tackle the job.
Now that Eric has decided he wants to spend less time on business and more time with Quinn, someone has to take over the reins of Forrester Creations. Quinn’s willing to pitch in and do her part. Meanwhile, Ridge would jump at the chance to take on the position. But perhaps it’s time some new younger blood steered FC into the future. Over 5,000 fans expressed their opinion on the subject.
The One and Only Eric
Over half of you, 51%, don’t want Eric to step down from the helm of the company. He is Forrester Creations to you, and no one can or should take his place. You’re hoping that once Eric (John McCook) fully recovers, he’ll come to his senses and realize it, too. Then, he’ll return to his desk in the corporate office and do what he does best.
The Son: Ridge
Number one son, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), is the choice of 20% of you. He has been Eric’s righthand man for years, not to mention the company’s lead fashion designer. Ridge has put in the time and earned the right to take over FC when Eric steps down. There is no other choice.
The Granddaughter: Steffy
The idea of someone new and young running the show at FC intrigues 17% of you. That’s why you cast your vote for Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). She’s smart, stylish, and an astute business woman. Plus, she’ll bring a freshness and a youthful perspective to the company. She’s the woman for the job.
The Wife: Quinn
After Quinn’s super successful fashion show, 7% of fans want to see Mrs. Eric Forrester running things full-time. Quinn (Rena Sofer) has proven she’s got an eye for the industry, and she’s not afraid to be bold and take chances. And Eric would always be by her side in case she needs any advice or wise words of wisdom.
The remaining 5% of you are divided between Thorne, Rick and Wyatt (Darin Brooks); Eric’s sons and stepson. You’d prefer seeing someone unexpected take over the company and think any one of the above men would be able to rise to the challenge.
