On Days of our Lives, we’ve got the people you love to love, the people you love to hate… and the people you just hate. Not everyone on agrees on who fits into which category.

Days of our Lives Polling

So we asked almost 3,000 fans: Who is Salem deserves the most hate? Here’s what you had to say about that.

DOOL: Annoying Gnat

Leo (Greg Rikaart) wants to believe that he is super important and that everyone lives in fear of him and his Lady Whistleblower column. But the truth is, barely 5% of viewers cared enough to remember who he was, much less expend any emotion on the loser.

Days of our Lives: Justified

Paulina (Jackée Harry), Chanel (Raven Bowens), and Belle (Martha Madison) are in agreement that no one worse than Sloan has ever walked the Earth. Yet, only 16% of voters agree with them. Sure, Sloan has done some mean things. But she had her reasons. And they weren’t even that bad.

DAYS: Killer Plant

As for Orpheus (George DelHoya), now there is a bad man, 35% agree. He also may have had his reasons, but he was taking his revenge out on the wrong people. Marlena (Deidre Hall), Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), and Kate (Lauren Koslow) didn’t deserve his punishment. He’s just lucky nobody dies in Salem. Or else he might have scored higher here.

Bad Days of our Lives Girl

Megan (Miranda Wilson) has the ire of a winning 44% of the audience, though. She kidnapped the women Orpheus “killed,” and she brainwashed Bo (Peter Reckell) away from the true love of his life. Her reasons are trivial compared to Sloan and Orpheus. They, at least, are mourning people they truly loved. Megan is still obsessed with a guy she dated in high school and taking it out on everyone he ever cared about. That’s why Megan is the one you all hate the most.

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada. For more about what’s coming up in Salem, check out all the latest DAYS spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
