Summer Newman thought she was the badass of The Young and the Restless. She’s a bad, bad girl. She stole a car once. And she slept with her mom’s boyfriend. And she made sure Sally (Courtney Hope) understood that plebian-born wannabes like her had better not dare hope to reach the heights otherwise reserved for the manor-born heiresses like her.
The Young and the Restless Polling
So, yeah, Summer (Hunter King) was the boss of Genoa City. But that was before New York City residents Ashland (Richard Burgi) and Tara (Elizabeth Leiner) blew into town. And made everyone look like the country bumpkins they actually are.
Tara laid it out for Summer. Leave town or Kyle (Michael Mealor) will lose his son for good. And if Summer goes crying to Kyle or Jack about it, well, Tara will make sure they side with Harrison’s mother.
Even Summer realizes she’s been outplayed and outsmarted, and that she needs help. Whom should she turn to? We’ve got the suggestions of over 2,000 of you:
Mother Knows Best
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) actually is all the things Summer just thinks she is, and 59% of the audience expect her to go to bat for her baby. As they sang in Gypsy, “You can do it/All you need is a hand/You can do it/MAMA is gonna see to it!”
Victor (Eric Braeden) got Ashland to sign over his company by refusing to call an ambulance for the heart attack he suffered until he signed the contracts. Surely, he can pull a similar stunt on Tara. For his precious Summer, 26% suggest.
Jack has always been a sucker for Summer, and he wants to keep Harrison as much as Kyle does. An optimistic 10% expect him to ride into the rescue just when Summer needs him most.
Only 5% are confident that Nick (Joshua Morrow) can offer a hand under these circumstances. He’s more morally upright than Phyllis, Victor, and Jack. That’s not what Summer needs. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
