To be a Days Of Our Lives heroine, you gotta be bold, wiser, tough, stronger, cool, calm, and you gotta stay together. Most importantly, you gotta have longevity! Your top three vote-getters for favorite leading lady are Salem vets! Here’s how almost 15000 viewers ranked them:
With 51% of the vote, Marlena (Deidre Hall) was the undisputed queen! She’s survived multiple husbands coming back, the Devil – and Sami (Allison Sweeney), though it was a bit tricky to tell the difference sometimes between the latter two.
She and John (Drake Hogysten) are happily married – again – and on the back burner, recapping other people’s stories. But you still love her the most, and you need to see more!
Caring For Kayla
Dr. Kayla Brady Johnson (Mary Beth Evans) is tops with 36% of the audience, especially now that her better half, Steve (Stephan Nichols), is on his way back to Salem and they, too, might end up back on the front burner.
For now, Kayla balances a busy professional life with counseling practically every lost young person who crosses her path. She supported Tripp’s (Lucas Adams) green-card marriage to Hayley (Thia Megia), and JJ’s (Casey Moss) crush on her, too. Now that’s the kind of versatility you like to see in your leading ladies!
You Gotta Have Hope
Only 12% stuck up for Hope, but that’s likely because she’s currently in the middle of blowing up her marriage to Rafe (Galen Gering) over an ill-advised flirtation with Ted. Let’s not forget that she is still not thrilled about daughter Ciara hooking up with serial killer Ben (Robert Scott Wilson).
Hope’s not in a great place in her life right now, which explains her not great ranking in this poll. Maybe she’ll get the chance to redeem herself. Days of our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local station for air times.
