No. 10: Adam and Melanie, The Young and the Restless

No. 10: Wyatt and Hope, The Bold and the Beautiful
Wyatt Fuller (Darin Brooks) is definitely his father's son. Like Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), when he sets his sights on something (or someone) he wants, he goes for it! Even if it means going after his newly-discovered half-brother's fiancé.

No. 5: Angie Hubbard, All My Children
Debbi Morgan’s return to Pine Valley as Angie, with the relaunch of All My Children, has nearly erased all memory of the YoHarmony debacle on The Young and the Restless. This summer we watched as Angie searched for answers in her daughter’s kidnapping. We saw her grapple with the awful truth of Cassandra’s (Saleisha Stowers) rape and drugging when her beloved daughter was returned to her arms.
