What can one say about soap opera heartthrobs? They make daytime drama interesting; their smiles light up a room; and they make our heart’s skip a beat. When it comes to Genoa City, this little town certainly does not lack in the department of heartthrobs. Nick Newman still rules the roost, half-brother Dylan McAvoy has all The Young and the Restless (Y&R) ladies swooning, and while Stitch Rayburn can’t seem to get a break when it comes to love, his fans still adore him. But what about those heartthrobs of the past? Below is a list of seven Y&R forgotten heartthrobs.
7. J. Eddie Peck
In the 1990s, J. Eddie Peck Swooned Y&R fans while portraying novelist, Cole Howard. He charmed the pants off the Newman women, engaging in affairs with both mom Nikki, and the billion-dollar princess Victoria. He even had a relationship with Ashley Abbott. While Peck has moved on from his stint in soap opera land, he did leave quite an imprint. Peck not only had a solid run on the Y&R, but also Days of Our Lives, All My Children, as well as primetime dramas like Dallas and Dynasty.
6. Scott Reeves
When Ryan McNeil stormed into Genoa City, the handsome and aspiring business executive was looking to climb the corporate Newman ladder. That he did, but he also stole a few hearts along the way. Scott Reeves entered the show in 1991 and quickly moved into a serious relationship with a young Victoria Newman. The two wed and while they were deeply in love but, unfortunately, things lacked in the bedroom. Enter: Nina Webster. She was more than happy to fill in any gaps that Ryan was missing with Victoria and jumped at the chance to have a relationship with him. Sadly, Ryan passed away in the early 2000s, on the day he was supposed to remarry Vicky. Saving Victoria from a bullet, his ex-girlfriend Tricia was too jealous to imagine anyone with Ryan but her – and she shot and killed him. Some Y&R fans are still grieving!
