Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

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.



8. Diane Jenkins

Speaking of Diane, she hits the bottom of the list because all these two really had was a whole lot of chemistry, but very little love. Sure, they engaged in a steamy affair together, one that resulted in a child, but Diane really only wanted to use Jack thanks to his connections at Jabot and his family status. The two would continue their affair, on and off during the years, but they never really had that spark to turn their romance into soap super couple status.
