Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

There’s nothing like a good soap opera super couple. It’s why fans tune into their favorite daytime dramas every week. A solid romance and a couple with tremendous chemistry can make soap opera fans swoon. Sadly, when two people get together that lack that certain something, it can be annoying to watch them fawn over each other daily. Alas, as we reminisce about the year that was 2016, below is a list of the best of the worst when it came to soap opera couples this year.

9. Jade and Joey – Days of Our Lives

You’d think that Joey Johnson may have picked up a thing or two in the love department from super couple parents, Patch and Kayla. Sadly, when it came to his first love affair with resident crazy teen, Jade Michaels — he missed his mark. Aside from the fact that this young girl has been nothing but trouble for young Joey since the day they became friends, the two lack incredible chemistry. The good news is they are young and have plenty of time to break up and find someone new. While Salem is a small town, there are plenty of other characters for Joey to meet and fall in love with; the same goes for Jade.

8. Victoria and Travis – The Young and the Restless

It seemed that Victoria Newman had finally met the man of her dreams in Travis Crawford in the spring of 2016. The two shared a hot and steamy affair when she met the bartender while becoming a frequent customer at Hank’s Bar. Alas, Vicky went as far as to hunt Travis down at one point when he left town, and when he returned to Genoa City to rat out Luca Santori things seemed to significantly sizzle down between Tricky. For one reason or another, Travis was intrigued by former flame Michelle Hazelton when she rolled into town and the two had a fling while he was still with Vicky. Not really a good indication that Travis is marriage material, especially considering it was still early in their relationship. The whole break up has opened a door for ex-husband Billy, and perhaps we shall see Victoria and Billy Boy shack up once again in 2017.
