The Bold and the Beautiful celebrates 30 years on March 23, 2017. Which means plenty of characters have come and gone, some leaving bigger marks than others. But who is your all-time favorite? Read what almost 2000 fans had to say:
She may have only been born on-screen in 1999, but she’s all grown up now, and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was voted the all-time favorite by 32% of viewers.
Maybe it’s the way she says, “Cha-cha-cha,” or the way she struggled for minutes to climb the corporate ladder. Or maybe it’s just that, like Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks), you can’t get enough.
Come On (Qu)Inn
Another newbie, and this one who came on as a psychotic, no less, but 30% tapped Quinn (Rena Sofer) for the second-place spot. Maybe if Eric (John McCook) believes she’s changed, so do you.
Or maybe it’s the opposite. You hope she hasn’t, and are looking forward to watching her stabbing people and pushing them off cliffs and bridges for another thirty years!
Third place, with 24%, was all over the place. Write-in candidates included the Logan girls and the founding Mr. and Mrs. Forrester, with Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Eric the only original cast-members still on the show.
Down With Men
The only man on the list, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), could only scrape up 14%. For the bulk of the show’s run, he was played by a different actor, so it’s impossible to tell whether Ridge would have finished higher or lower had Ronn Moss still been there.
What’s clear, though, is that unlike Caroline 1.0 (Joanna Johnson)…. and Brooke… and Taylor (Hunter Tylo)… and Katie (Heather Tom)… and Caroline 2.0 (Linsay Godfrey)… and all the other women who’ve fallen at his feet, current viewers aren’t as enamored with him. Wonder which side of the equation Quinn will come down on….
