The Young And The Restless’ 10 Most Mismatched Couples

Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

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.



8. J.T. Helstrom and Victoria Newman

Billion-dollar princess Victoria Newman seemed to have a type that she always fell for: hunky corporate businessman. Her relationships with Neil Winters, Brad Carlton, Billy Abbott, and Ryan McNeil proved this and maybe she always falls for this ‘type’ because of who her father is. Along came J.T. Helstrom in 2008. Unlike her other suitors, he wasn’t corporate, a businessman, or even remotely wealthy. J.T. was an average Joe, who also happened to be incredibly handsome and charming. While this couple was mismatched, they also had tremendous chemistry and were actually a good fit at one point in time. Perhaps some of that chemistry is attributed to the fact that the actors who play Helstrom and Newman are also a real-life couple.
