Days of our Lives fans have always needed a hero. Remember Bo arriving on his motorcycle to sweep Hope away from her wedding with that Footloose track blasted in the background?
Days of our Lives Polling
But, which hero has been your favorite over the years? Almost 4,000 were happy to tell us!
The One and Only
A majority 67% of you went with the original music video star, Bo (Peter Reckell). He did the classic turn from bad boy with a dark past to ideal boyfriend hero thanks to the love of a good woman. He died… he came back… she died… she came back. Currently, he’s dead. But we all know that’s just a temporary state. (We hope.)
Best Friend Steve
Once Bo had paved the path, Steve (Stephen Nichols) chose to follow, much to the happiness of a smaller 16% of the audience. He was also a bad boy with a dark past – which included Bo putting his eye out when they fought over a woman – and fell for a girl… and then died. He is currently alive, so he and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) are in a better place.
The Man With No Past
We first met John (Drake Hogysten) when he didn’t know who he was. Then, for a while there, he thought he was Roman. Marlena (Deidre Hall) – and the audience – fell in love with him and stayed in love even once it turned out he was someone else, too. That’s why 12% chose him as your favorite hero. No matter what name he’s going under these days.
Only 5% chose Shane (Charles Shaughnessey), who hasn’t been seen for a while. At his peak, he was the only hero with an actual license to do heroic things, so he was the pro in the room with the amateurs. Now that everybody has a badge, he’s less impressive. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
