The Young and the Restless has had its share of wonderful couplings and connections over the years.
The success of daytime and particularly its love stories is based on the sublime chemistry between its actors. When they’re working, there’s nothing better. When they’re not, there’s nothing worse. Amelia Heinle, who plays Victoria, has bounced between a few leading men over the past two-plus years. It all started after Billy Miller exited the soap as Billy. Fans weighed in on which actor Heinle had the best chemistry with – nearly 10,000 of you!
Is anyone really surprised? Billy Miller, who portrayed the youngest Abbott son from 2008 to 2014, won by a landslide — collecting 66% of the votes. It was Miller’s Billy who was first paired with Heinle’s Victoria, and sparks instantly flew between them. During their run, “Villy” married twice and reached bona fide supercouple status.

Jason Thompson, who took over the role of Billy in 2016, snagged 25% of fans’ approval. You’re enjoying the General Hospital vet’s take on the character and genuinely like his chemistry with Heinle. As a result, you’re hoping the show’s writers reunite Victoria and Billy. They belong together.
Billy who? That’s the question 7% of you are asking, because you’re pulling for a Travis and Victoria love story. You think actor Michael Roark and Heinle have that indescribable “it” factor. Even though Travis cheated on Victoria, you’re hoping she forgives him and they can move forward together.
A small 2% of you really liked Burgess Jenkins’ interpretation of Billy and the onscreen rapport he shared with Heinle’s Victoria. In fact, you were sad when he left the soap and the role had to be recast, yet again.
