DC's 10 Worst Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No. 4: Daniel and Jennifer, Days of Our Lives
Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell simply will not stop trying to make Shawn Christian happen at Days of Our Lives. Christian's character, the perennially randy, nondiscriminating Dr. Daniel Jonas, continues to drive the women of Salem so insane that they forget about their newly-dead husbands, and/or threaten to fling themselves off the steps of the Horton Town Square, when denied access to the good doc's pink flesh stick.
The peeps at DAYS want us to believe that Daniel is the love of Jennifer Horton's (Melissa Reeves) life. The problem is, we've actually been watching the soap opera all these years, and know that Jenn has only truly loved one man — Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford). Tomlin and Whitesell may get tickled by killing off Jack with the same frequency that South Park slaughters Kenny, but it doesn't change the fact that he remains the only man for Jennifer Rose.
