The Forrester family has been a staple on soaps since its debut on the premiere episode of The Bold And The Beautiful in 1987. Fans took to the clan right away and the show has wisely kept the Forresters in the front-burner over the years.
Soap Hub asked viewers who their favorite Forrester is. While all the Forresters hold a special place in your hearts, folks do tend to enjoy some over others. The results would likely vary from year to year or even month to month, but here’s who the top contenders are now!
Eric The Great
Nearly 59% of your votes went to Eric Forrester, played by original cast member, fan favorite, and Daytime Emmy nominee John McCook. He was in the show’s first episode and continues to be a presence on the show today.
Fans instantly took to the drama surrounding his troubled marriage with Stephanie (Susan Flannery) and were happy he found another chance at love with Quinn (Rena Sofer).
Coming in second is Steffy Forrester (Daytime Emmy-winner Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) with 35% of your vote. She’s recently back on screen, having completed her work in Paris at Forrester International.
Steffy is Taylor’s (Hunter Tylo) daughter in her beauty and she has her grandmother’s fierce loyalty to family. Additionally, Steffy knows how to stand up for herself and is one of Forrester Creations’ most successful execs — and models! She’s the best!
Ridge Forrester, a character seen in the show’s premiere and now being played by Daytime Emmy-nominee Thorsten Kaye, is the show’s main romantic lead.
Ridge, who earned a solid percentage of your votes, has designed a lot of gowns over the decades and captured many hearts. You love how he stands by Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang). and is extremely protective of his kids.
