DC's 10 Worst Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No. 5: Kevin and Chloe, The Young and The Restless
We were all fans of John Hughes' movies in the 80's, but sometimes the Geek and the Glamour Puss are meant to just be friends; this is certainly the case with Kevin Fisher's (Greg Rikaart) sexless romance with Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) on The Young and the Restless. We adore Kev and Chloe—separately—but as a couple they do absolutely nothing for us.
Sneaky, weasley Kevin should be off hacking into Jack Abbott's (Peter Bergman) computer, at the behest of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden); while luxury queen Chloe could be mixing it up at Jabot with her ex-hubby Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard), his wife—and Chloe's onetime rival—Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) and sexy newcomer Tyler Michaelson (Redaric Williams). Maybe Tyler and Chloe could team up to bust up the Ashbys, while accidentally falling for one another, much to the chagrin of Tyler's overprotective big sis, Leslie (Angell Conwell)?
Or maybe, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) could enlist the former NYC socialite to host parties at his new club, putting her in the orbit of Nick's hunky son Noah (Robert Adamson) and his foes Carmine (Marco Dapper) and Alex (Ignacio Serricchio)? We don't know exactly who or what Chloe should be doing in Genoa City, but we definitely know it shouldn't be Kevin.
