Good versus evil is a compelling story that is told time and time again within movies, primetime television, and of course daytime drama! In fact, villains battling heroes is an over-arching theme for soap operas in general. As fans of soaps, we sure do love the good guys, but they would be nothing without the bad guys they rival. As such, below is list of eleven popular soap opera villains ranked:
20. Y&R: Victor Newman
Victor is certainly a character Y&R fans love to hate, yet they respect him too, all in the same breath! Sure, he’s done some pretty terrible things over the years, but understanding where he’s come from and his past has made him multi-faceted. He’s got a controlling streak that’s for sure, but his tenderness towards his grandchildren and his overall love for his family has him hitting the mid-point of this villains’ list. Victor can be a bad guy, but he’s done some good over the years too.
