In the land of soap operas, opposites do attract. The good girl next door always seems to be taken by the bad boy in town. When it comes to the Young and the Restless (Y&R), this recipe for romance has worked in the past, but there are also times when it failed miserably. Whether you are talking super couples or those who didn’t make it, below is a top 10 list of Y&R’s most mismatched couples.
9. Deacon Sharpe and Nikki Newman
Age difference aside, these two were a mismatched couple from the get-go. When they hooked up in 2011, Nikki Newman was considered a high-society diva in Genoa City, whereas Deacon was a con artist, bartender and a low life. The handsome Sharpe was able to turn Nikki’s eye and manipulate her into marrying him, despite her daughter Vicky’s warnings. Nikki would eventually see Deacon’s true colors, so these two didn’t last long, but still a cringe worthy mismatched couple to reminisce upon.
