Young And The Restless’ 7 Worst Characters Of All Time

5. Ian Ward

One would think that an evil cult leader that lies and manipulates would be considered a force to be reckoned with in Genoa City, but the sad truth is, Ian Ward is anything but. He entered Y&R in 2014 as part of a storyline that revolved around Dylan McAvoy and his true paternity (which also involved Nikki Newman). Ward also dabbled in the plot which involved Sharon Newman and the reveal that she had another daughter in Mariah Copeland. Not sure if it’s because Ward does not fit the stereotypical image of a cult leader, but when push comes to shove, he doesn’t really seem that dangerous … or crazy for that matter.



4. Mariah Copeland

When Mariah entered the Genoa City scene at first, her character was quite intriguing. Whether that is because audiences wondered if she was Cassie, or because she was interesting to watch due to her manipulative ways. Nowadays Mariah is dull at best. Her storyline with Devon is a nice change, but she’s lost her ‘edge’ over the months.
