Steffy Forrester is a prime example of a woman who doesn’t need a man to feel complete. The Bold and the Beautiful character has been happily forging forward solo, since giving birth to her daughter Kelly.
The Bold and the Beautiful: A New Man For Steffy
But the time has come to get Steffy back in the relationship game. In fact, the soap has hired a new leading man – actor Tanner Novlan, who’s been cast as Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan – to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood. Before Steffy embarks on her next romantic adventure, let’s take a look back a the guy’s she’s flirted with, loved and lost over the years.
The Earlier Years: Man, Oh Men
When Steffy began working for the family business, Forrester Creations, in 2008, she briefly dated Marcus (Texas Battle). But the death of her twin, Phoebe, sent her in a new direction. Steffy turned her attention toward Rick, her late sister’s boyfriend, to help her mourn the young woman they both loved.
The pair grew close, started dating and became engaged. Steffy’s family didn’t approved and, ultimately, broke up their relationship. Steffy also made moves on the married Owen (Brandon Beemer) and tried to steal Hope’s boyfriend Oliver (Zack Conroy).
Playing with Fire
Steffy found herself intrigued with Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), when the mogul took over over Forrester Creations. Determined to get the business back for her family, she attempted to seduce Bill — then, blackmailed him into signing the company over to her.
In time, Steffy fell hard for Bill and vice versa, despite the fact that he was married to Katie (Heather Tom). But the twosome’s plans to be together were derailed when Katie suffered a heart attack and Bill recommitted to his wife. Years later, Steffy had on a one-night stand with Bill while she was wed to Liam (Scott Clifton), totally destroying her marriage.
Love for Liam
Steffy’s attraction to Liam, who initially was involved with her stepsister, Hope, led to a BB triangle that would play out for years. Although Steffy initially plotted and schemed to snare him from Hope, she eventually learned to play fair, endearing herself to Liam. As he tried to sort out his feelings, he bounced back and forth between the two women.
Part of him was drawn to Hope’s sweet virtuous side, while another part of him was drawn to Steffy’s sexiness and love for adventure and fun. In the process, Steffy married Liam three times, and they had a daughter, Kelly, who they’re currently raising as divorced, yet dedicated parents.
The Wyatt Factor
During one of her many breakups with Liam – only this time he had also lost his memory and was being held captive by Quinn (Rena Sofer) – Steffy found herself drawn to his brother Wyatt (Darin Brooks). Determined to show her how to enjoy life again, Wyatt took her surfing and even bought her a motorcycle.
The duo fell in love and ended up marrying on the beach, but their happy union wouldn’t last long. The couple’s opposing views on Quinn and Eric’s (John McCook) relationship and the eventual marriage proved to be their downfall, and they decided to divorce. Plus, of course, Liam returned and still wanted Steffy…
