10 Popular Young And The Restless Couples Ranked Worst To Best
Soap opera fans tune in weekly to their daytime shows for many reasons. Some love the adventure, others enjoy watching the drama unfold, but many tune in to watch for the romance! We all have our favorites when it comes to soap opera characters and couples, and The Young and the Restless (Y&R) has seen its fair share of hook ups over the years. Below is a ranking of the ten most popular Y&R couples over the years from worst to best:
10. Cricket Blair and Danny Romalotti
Going through the Y&R’s history vault, we hit a super couple of the late ‘80s. Before she was known as Christine Blair, Lauralee Bell was simply Cricket, a young strong girl who was always looking for adventure. She fell in love with rock star Danny Romalotti and the two shared quite the romance. Sadly, super fan Phyllis Summers put an end to their relationship in the early ‘90s when she drugged Danny and then pawned off her son as his kid. While their marriage ended, the twosome was that A-typical long-time soap couple that would be on-again and off-again from time-to-time. They land at number 10 on this list because, while they were popular, they never seemed able to get their relationship act together. Phyllis broke them up initially, but their careers also got in the way of true love.
9. Chelsea and Adam Newman
These con artists initially found mutual ground together as the social outcasts of Genoa City. They hit the list near the bottom, but this has more to do with the fact that their relationship simply hasn’t lasted as long as others on the list. This is mainly due to lapses in their coupledom, mainly due to the constant recasting of Adam Newman. Regardless, both with backgrounds of deception, neither Adam nor Chelsea were strangers to manipulating things to get their way. Alas, together these zeros quickly turned into heroes over time. Was it Chelsea that turned Adam into a better man or was it Adam’s love for Chelsea that helped her figure out that lying and scheming was no way to live a life? One could argue that their relationship both essentially helped them to become better people and their son Connor also played a part in their transformation. Sadly, Adam is gone, but in the world of soaps no one is ever truly dead. Here’s hoping that at some point in the near future, fans will get treated to an Adam return and the return of (one of) Y&R’s most popular couples.
