Days of our Lives has always been about couples. Doug and Julie led to Roman and Marlena who led to Bo and Hope who led to Steve and Kayla who led to Kim and Shane who led to Marlena and John who led to Shawn and Belle and yes, all the dozens of others we don’t have the bandwidth to list. But, among the newer pairings, which one is your favorite? We got the scoop from almost 4,000 viewers.
Days of our Lives Polling: So, So Close
It was a heated battle here at the top but, ultimately, 33% of you went with Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Eric (Greg Vaughan). They’ve been through so much together – including her death – and now their life seems perfect. They’re finally married, they’ve got little Holly, and almost had a brand-new baby boy with no name! What a shame a cloud of doom is hanging over Eric… in the shape of Vaughan’s looming departure.
They’ve still got it! An almost equal 32% Days of our Lives fans voted Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John (Drake Hogysten) tops, even though John is a little bit different after his coma. You’re sure this couple will weather whatever storm comes their way, either from a hospital bed… or with strawberries and whipped cream.
A drop off to 21% placed Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) in third place. Who cares that she’s a complete psycho who has killed and kidnapped and is currently sitting in jail for stabbing Brady’s grandfather? She loves her baby… aw! That makes this couple a keeper!
Bad Girl’s Friend…And Eli
Only 14% voted for Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers). Perhaps because Lani is currently mad at Eli for arresting Kristen for stabbing Victor (John Aniston). As a cop herself, Lani knows Eli could have easily ignored slapping the cuffs on her friend. She’s furious he chose to do his job! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC.
