The Bold and the Beautiful hit the jackpot when the show cast Don Diamont as Bill ‘Dollar Bill’ Spencer on the half-hour soap. The fan-favorite brought a male antagonist to the show, giving many of the show’s leading ladies a viable love interest and providing a formidable foil to many of the men.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
As with every character on any daytime show, Bill has seen his share of time on the backburner in recent years. Are you looking to see more of Bill? Soap Hub posed this question to BB fans. Read on for the results!
Not surprisingly, the majority of you, 84% say that yes, you would like to see more of Bill. He fills a unique void in the show in that Bill can say pretty much whatever is on his mind whenever he wants. Bill’s remarks will result in some groans and eye-rolling at times — especially when he says something that’s so on the mark!
Just when you think Bill’s all business, he’ll have a (rare) moment of compassion such as when he learned that Sally (Courtney Hope) is dying. Bill’s turned over a new leaf given what we’ve seen in his recommitment to Katie (Heather Tom).
Bet Your Bottom Dollar
The rest of you, 16%, say you’re okay seeing Bill as often as you are now. BB being a half-hour serial is a double-edged sword. The show knows quickly how to leave you wanting more, but it doesn’t take an hour a day to watch either. Alas, that means there’s just not enough screen-time to see all your favorites as often as you’d like.
If BB were to ever go to an hour, there’d be lots of airtime for Bill and all the other characters we don’t see enough of to appear more often. What’s going to happen to Bill next? Stay tuned to find out! The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
