The Young and the Restless (YR) heartbreakers range from titans of industry Victor and Jack, to heroes like Paul (Doug Davidson) and Dylan, caring dads like Nick, Neil (Kristoff St. John), and Michael, and younger heartthrobs like Billy, Cane, Kevin, Devon (Bryant James) and Noah.
But which is your current favorite leading man in Genoa City? Over 7,000 viewers gave the thumbs up to these finalists!
It wasn’t even close! A decisive 82% of you named Nick (Joshua Morrow) top of the heap. And why not? The guy knows how to be romantic with his latest squeeze, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), understanding with his ex, Sharon (Sharon Case), and paternal with kids Noah (Robert Adamson), Faith (Alyvia Alyn Lind) and Christian.
He can even handle his sister, Victoria (Aemlia Heinle), and offer tips on dealing with his nephew, Reed (Tristan Lake Lebau). He is, in fact, the perfect man. Well, except for all those divorces….
If Not the Victor, Then the Runner Up
Odds are, Victor (Eric Braeden) would not be happy to hear he came in second in anything. Not even to his own son. Alas, Vic, only 13% of the audience named you as their favorite. Maybe it’s all the lying and manipulating, followed by the endless explanations of why you are right and everyone else is wrong. That can get pretty tedious after 30+ years.
Yes, We Cane!
Not a Newman, not an Abbott, not even a Foster (though he did fake it for a while), Cane (Daniel Goddard) still made the list with 4% of the vote. But was this before or after viewers — and he — learned he’d cheated on Lily (Christel Khalil) with Juliet (Laur Allen)?
And All That Jack(s)
On the other hand, being an Abbott didn’t stop Jack (Peter Bergman) from coming in last, with only 2% of support. Maybe he’d have had a better turnout if he didn’t keep alienating his own family? Or forgetting he had kids? Keemo? Kyle? You can’t win these things without grassroots voting, and going Lone Wolf is not the way to make that happen.
