The land of Genoa City is a diverse one with many different characters that spill out of this larger-than-life fictional small town. You have those strong and powerful corporate types, vying for the top spot in the cosmetics’ industry. You have your socialites, who are busy planning all the big gala events, as well as heroes and heroines, schemers, lawyers, criminals, cops, and those characters that go a little psychotic at times. The good, the bad, and the ugly are all portrayed on the Young and the Restless (Y&R). While there are some strong characters, there have also been some terrible ones over the years. As such, below is a seven list of the worst Y&R characters of all time.
7. Austin Travers
Austin entered Genoa City in the spring of 2014 and was a seemingly nice guy. While he caught Summer Newman’s attention, the good guy turned bad when he held her Aunt Avery hostage, as he felt she was responsible for his mother’s death. Alas, he was a little messed up, but was given a second chance by everyone who was close to Summer. Despite the fact that Travers clearly had issues, the character lacked a tremendous amount of depth, considering the storylines he was embroiled in. No shocker here, he wound up dead in 2015 as a part of a ‘Who Dunnit’ storyline that involved drug lord Marco Annicelli.
