When Tessa first appeared on The Young and the Restless (YR), she was some musician wannabe that Nikki found to help an angry Reed study music.
She seemed to have the magic touch with the unruly teen, able to quickly get his respect where few others had succeeded. But her magic wasn’t confined to just Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) wayward son.
It wasn’t long before Tessa had gained the confidence of one of the richest women in town – Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) – probably reminding her of herself as a young woman.
Nikki admires the way scrappy way Tessa is able to survive, and she wants to help her do it. In return, Tessa has reignited Nikki’s love for music and playing the piano. Along the way, she has also captured the heart of Nikki’s grandson, Noah (Robert Adamson).
But, has she captured the hearts of fans? Soap Hub asked if you’re warming up to Tessa and the response was quite surprising as almost 15,000 answered.

It’s So Warm, It’s Hot!
On the other hand, 36% of you have completely warmed up to Tessa. Just like Nikki, you are rooting for her to overcome her circumstances to become a thriving part of Genoa City life. You dig her music and how she brings out this other side of people you already care about.
