It’s an unusual time on The Young and the Restless, as Jack, Ashley, Traci, and Billy Abbott are all simultaneously single. (So are their former stepmothers, Jill and Gloria, but out of sight, out of mind.)
The Young and the Restless Polling
They’ve all suffered through some bad relationships, and none of them have really been able to make one work. (The dead spouses don’t count. They’d have screwed those up, too, given enough time.) But which one is the most in need of a new relationship now? We’ve got almost 5,000 votes to answer that question:
Traci (Beth Maitland) is the one who has never done anything deliberately awful. (Unless you count allowing Victor to have her daughter Colleen’s heart after he was responsible for the girl’s death. Think how much trouble she could have saved Genoa City if she’d let him die over a decade ago.) So Traci is the one 53% are rooting for to find her soulmate. It wasn’t Brad (Don Diamont). It wasn’t Danny (Michael Damian). And it certainly wasn’t Cane (Daniel Goddard). So who should it be?
Jack Be Nimble
Get Jack (Peter Bergman) a woman, stat, 40% of the audience commands. It has been way, way too long, and he is way, way too rich and good-looking to spend most of his time worrying about his mother and offering advice to his son.
Billy Boy Gruff
Only 4% care whether or not Billy gets a new love interest. You enjoyed him with Victoria (Amelia Heinle), but he found a way to screw that up. Why let him near another woman so he can do it again?
Out Of the Ashes
And then there’s the 3% who think Ashley is in need of a man. She has always been strong, independent, and career-focused in a way her siblings can’t manage. Love would be nice, but it’s not the only thing in her world. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
