She used to be poor hapless Gabi Hernandez on Days of Our Lives, always getting the short end of the stick in relationships and in business. But then Gabi got tired of being a doormat and fought back!
Some viewers may not like this new feisty Gabi (Camila Banus) — a woman who refuses to back down when forced into a corner. Instead, she comes out swinging. Soap Hub wondered how fans are feeling about who Gabi has become — and you certainly let us know as almost 14,000 passed judgment!
For 52% you, Gabi’s turn to bad girl — lying to her best friend Chad (Billy Flynn) about his baby and gaslighting his wife and her other BFF Abigail (Kate Mansi) — was not the Gabi you’ve come to know and love and you want it to stop. Salem already has Kate (Lauren Koslow) for this service.
Gabi was a scrapper and that’s how you like her. Always reaching for the stars but sometimes getting swatted down. She was once worthy of JJ (Casey Moss) and Eli (Lamon Archey), but she wouldn’t be now and that’s not right.
Yet 24% see that her love for Ari, Will (Chandler Massey), and Sonny (Freddie Smith) somehow redeems her so she’s not a complete villain. There isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for them. So, she messed a bit with Abby and Stefan (Tyler Christopher). She kind of deserved it and he certainly did. You really can’t blame Gabi for snapping.
Getting Down With Her Bad Self
Meanwhile, an equal 24% are seriously loving this new dark side of Gabi and hope she keeps it because it makes her awesome! She calls people on their hypocrisy and that’s needed in Salem. Doormat Gabi wasn’t as fun as a Gabi who sees what she wants and is willing to fight for it — even if that fight crosses a line. Go, Gabi!
