Jasper Jax fans were absolutely thrilled earlier this year when General Hospital announced he would be making a permanent return. Ever since Ingo Rademacher stepped back into the role, viewers have been salivating at the prospect of which lovely lady would be paired with the dapper Aussie gent.
So SoapHub put it to a vote. You were asked which female would create the most sizzle with the brainy businessman. So who would you prefer to on Jax’s arm? Here’s what 7,000 viewers said:
A whopping 60% of you asked the question, “Valentin who?” You would much rather see Nina swapping longing looks, playful banter, and tender kisses with a man who wasn’t named Cassadine. You think that Rademacher and Cynthia Watros are fire together and relish any time these two share the screen.
Still, there’s just something about an old unrequited love. Over 20% of you gave trouble prone Brenda your vote. Sure, Brenda’s greatest love is Sonny, but she sure did heat up the screen with his arch-enemy Jax.
You think bringing back Brenda and pairing her up with Jax while Sonny and Carly wrestle with concerns for their baby would make for dynamite entertainment. And it’s been quite a while since the Sonny/Carly/Brenda/Jax quadrangle ruled the GH scene.
There’s 4% of you who think Jax would look awfully good with gal pal Carly back in his romantic orbit. He did marry the feisty blond after all.
Finally, there are 14% of you who think Jax would be perfect if placed opposite Miss Ava Jerome. She’s funny, feisty, blond — in fact, she’s quite similar to Carly (NEVER tell that to Carly). Well, similar in many ways, except Ava can get a bit more murderous when she finds herself displeased, threatened, or otherwise annoyed.
But still, you can see the sparks every time that Jax and Ava are together. Yes, they argue. Yes, he has called her out for her despicable behavior. But so what? Carly and Brenda were certainly no angels.
And Jax would be assured of one hell of a good time if he threw his cap Ava’s way. General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
