We’re still not exactly sure what qualified Lily Winters to be the new CEO of Chancellor Industries on The Young and the Restless. Sure, she used to be a fashion model, and that is a pretty dog-eat-dog world. And, yes, she did some time in prison, which means that, unlike most other CEOs, she actually does have a sense of how people without her level of privilege live.
Young and the Restless Polling
But is that enough? Does she even know what Chancellor produces? (We still don’t. The last business idea Lily had involved…podcasting?) Does she need a mentor to help her truly embrace her new role? Who should it be? What Y&R viewers who dabble as life coaches suggested:
Y&R: Two of a Kind
Thirty years ago, viewers weren’t sure what exactly qualified Jill Foster Abbott (Jess Walton) to be an executive at Jabot — beyond being married to the then-CEO John Abbott (Jerry Douglas), that is. And what qualified her to take on Chancellor? Well, she had sex with its onetime CEO while he was still married…and gave birth to his son.
Yeah, that’s good enough. The point is, Jill knows what it’s like to be an unqualified pretender to the throne. And 45% of you would like to see her share that life experience with Lily (Christel Khalil).
Young and the Restless: On My Own
Nope, Lily is fine on her own, 25% of fans counter. She got the job on her own merits — dating Jill’s son. And she will keep it based on her own merits — keeping Jill’s son under control.
Young and Restless: Father Figure
Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) is a much better choice for mentor, 15% of the audience advises. He’s good with young people. And he has nothing better to do, does he?
Young and the Restless: The Big Man
Lily is taking Katherine Chancellor’s place. And Katherine consulted with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Lily should do it, too, 5% say. Victor knows all.
