Except for that whole, one-of-a-kind love of a lifetime thing with Bo, Hope hasn’t been particularly lucky in love on Days Of Our Lives. (And even with Bo, he and Hope took turns being presumed dead for a good part of that love story.)
Since Bo (Peter Reckell), Hope had Aiden (Daniel Cosgrave) the crazy killer, Rafe (Galen Gering), the boring co-worker, and Ted (Gilles Martini), the now-dead sleazy ambulance chaser. Can she do better? Who should be Hope’s next love? What almost 10,000 fans had to say:
None Of the Above
Looking over the Salem canvas, 66% of you decided…Hope really needs someone new. No one currently there measures up. Though you do wonder if any man ever really could. Because Bo.
Then there are the 31% who think Hope should give Rafe another shot. He may be boring, but he’s sweet. Kind. Dependable. Kind of like a puppy. And who doesn’t love puppies?
Sure, he left Hope in a lurch to go help Sami (Alison Sweeney) with a Johnny crisis. And, sure, he still has custody of Jordan’s (Chrishell Hartley) baby, even though Hope has made it clear she’s not interested in raising another child, especially his psycho ex-girlfriend’s. But he’s…there.
Split the Difference
One percent of the vote – each – went to John (Drake Hogysten) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis). Uhm… what. Sure, John was once considered a possible dad for Zack. But that was while she thought she was a princess named Gina, he was an amnesiac killer, and both were out of their minds.
As for Tony… Hope “killed” his father. Not that Tony wouldn’t entertain the notion himself but, still. Plus, how to put this nicely? John and Tony are too old. They were adults when Hope was still a carefree teen. So… no. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
