After a year of a baby-switch that brought a psychotic Thomas into the mix and then dragged into more of Thomas’s insane manipulations, The Bold and the Beautiful is finally offering a variety of plotlines to keep you entertained.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
It’s a switch for the soap that often only has one front burner story at a time (sometimes due to its half-hour format). Which of these new stories has you on the edge of your seat the most?
A New Romance
Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) have been on-again/off-again for the entirety of the show’s 33-year run. They always do something to mess up one of their many marriages and this time it was Brooke. While she knew she wanted Ridge back, she couldn’t resist Bill (Don Diamont) and one kiss became a huge scandal after Quinn (Rena Sofer) revealed all.
That sent Ridge even further into Shauna’s (Denise Richards) arms and 36% of you are loving their odd little relationship more than anything else right now. Shauna truly loves Ridge but doesn’t want to be his consolation prize. Meanwhile, Ridge does seem to know how he feels at all, but you are loving their chemistry.
A Huge Rivalry
An off-shoot of the Shauna and Ridge story is the new rivalry between Quinn and Brooke and 35% of The Bold and the Beautiful fans polled love the way these two women go at it. Their war even reminds you of Brooke’s former rivalry with the late Stephanie, a woman Quinn wants to replace, but never truly can. You can’t wait to see if their feud becomes a long term thing.
Sally: Death, Dying, and Lying
There was a time not too long ago when fans were rooting for the second incarnation of Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope), but then she went and did something shocking and seemingly out of character. She’s faking a fatal illness all in a ploy to win Wyatt (Darin Brooks) back — a man who dumped her one too many times. (Where’s your pride, Sally?)
A full 29% of you are loving this story because you didn’t see faux dying plot coming and look forward to seeing how this pans out. Can Sally be redeemed in your eyes or is she taking things just a little too far? The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
