Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Jack Abbott may be best known for his rivalry with Victor Newman, but the man had many great love affairs during his tenure in Genoa City. The character was introduced in 1980 and over the years he’s had some interesting flings and marriages with some of the top leading ladies on the Y&R. Below are nine of Jack Abbott’s love interests ranked from worst to best.
9. Patty Williams
Poor Patty. She clearly loved Jack far more than he ever loved her. The two hooked up in the early ‘80s and the real reason Jack even gave Patty a second glance was to impress his father and show him that he was a man. Sadly, Jack engaged in an affair with Diane Jenkins while with Patty and, despite the fact that he and Williams did get married, the relationship did not last long. Unfortunately, Patty has suffered with mental issues her entire adult life, and she’s proven to be a thorn in Jack’s side over the years due to her obsession with him.CBS
