The Bold and the Beautiful has everything a soap fan could want — romance, drama, social issues, fashion, and feuds! There have been many classic rivalries over the years on the half-hour soap, which have led to the program becoming an international success!
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
But which rivalry on the show do you miss the most? Soap Hub posed this question to the show’s fans. Read on for the results and let us know if you agree!
It seems 40% of you say you miss seeing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor (Hunter Tylo) feuding on a regular basis. The two started out as allies in that they were united in helping Ridge (then Ronn Moss; now Thorsten Kaye) deal with the fact that his wife Caroline (Joanna Johnson) was dying.
They soon became rivals for the merry widower. They’ve thrown cake at one another, had a mud fight, and battled each other in a lily pond. Given Brooke’s acrimonious relationship with Taylor’s son Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), the two women now have one more conflict between them!
It’s Spectra, Baby!
Viewers who are watching classic re-airings of BB have been reminded of the famous Sally (Darlene Conley) and Stephanie (Susan Flannery) feud that began before the two ever even met. These two scored second-by-a-hair in the poll with 39% of your vote.
Steph didn’t care much for the fact that Sally’s company, Spectra Fashions, was knocking off Forrester originals to make a tidy profit. Over the years, the two were rivals, in-laws, and, eventually, friends. Sally calling the Forrester matriarch “Queen Stephanie” and envying her so much put BB on the map!
Hope For The Present
The couple coming in third (with a smidge over 21% of your vote) is Hope (Annika Noelle) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). The pair likely scored low because you don’t “miss” this rivalry at all — it’s still a big part of the show!
It wasn’t that long ago that Steffy locked lips with Liam (Scott Clifton) and even though she initiated the kiss, Liam didn’t exactly balk at the idea of embracing his ex. This rivalry is continuing on much to the pleasure of BB fans! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
