Soaps may be primarily a woman’s genre, but the men of The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) often think they’re living in a world where men are king! Which B&B guy acts the most selfishly when it comes to going after what he wants?
Soap Hub asked viewers if they think Bill (Don Diamont), Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), or Thorne (Ingo Rademacher) is the best at looking out for their own best interests. Read on for the results!
The Buck Stops Here
Not surprisingly, “Dollar” Bill Spencer came in first for being selfish with over 58% of your vote. Forget about how he used to try to manipulate Wyatt and Liam’s love lives. His more recent actions of blowing up Spectra and sleeping with Steffy after she’d had a fight with Liam are beyond selfish.
Bill wants what he wants when he wants it and if people get in his way, well, that’s just too bad for them. What’s worse is that Bill never seems to learn from his lessons or take time to reflect. Jumping into bed with Steffy seemed ill-advised for no other reason than Bill is supposed to still be in love with Brooke.
Ridge Over Troubled Waters
Ridge comes in second with your votes with almost 32% of the tally. He could give Bill lessons in arrogance. Ridge kissed Quinn on the eve of his wedding to Brooke.
It’d be one thing if he were trying to get Quinn out of his dad’s life, but Ridge didn’t say that was the reason. And let’s not forget the time Ridge pretended to be back in love with Brooke only so she’d dump Thorne. That move was just plain cruel.
A “Thorne” By Any Other Name
He may have only received just under 10% of your vote but Thorne is no saint. He manipulated Caroline into marrying him years and years ago by conspiring with Brooke, who wanted Ridge.
Years later, Thorne developed his own relationship with Brooke, breaking Macy’s heart in the process. He can “want what he wants” just as much as any other guy on B&B.
These actions were all done, of course, when other actors played the part, but they come with his history now that Rademacher is playing the role. Time will tell if his Thorne develops his own selfish streak! Stay tuned.
