PLAYED BY:
John: Larry Bryggman
Bob: Don Hastings
YEARS: 1969-2004, 2010
COMMENT:
"They fought for decades over women, their children and control of Memorial hospital.  When Bryggman returned for the final three weeks of ATWT in 2010, he and Hastings picked up the rivalry as if John had never been gone." - Roger Newcomb

DUO: Stephanie Forrester & Brooke Logan
SHOW: THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
RANK: 7
PLAYED BY:
Stephanie: Susan Flannery
Brooke: Katherine Kelly Lang

"Stephanie and Brooke’s complicated relationship has been front and center on B&B for years. For most of those years, Stephanie has been in open battle with Brooke, though they occasionally call a truce." - Patrick Erwin





DUO: Victor Newman & Jack Abbott
SHOW: THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
RANK: 6
PLAYED BY:
Victor: Eric Braeden
Jack: Terry Lester, Peter Bergman
YEARS: 1980-present
COMMENT:
"What do you call these two? Frenemies? Rivals? Former in-laws? Regardless, Jack and Victor's rivalry has riveted viewers for more than 20 years, and their portrayers' (Braeden and Bergman) ownership of their characters' history is one of the reason why viewers still care!" - Jonathan Reiner

  2. I loved this list and now getting into the nitty gritty of top ten. Rick & Phillip gosh yes, their friendship had ebbs & flow but when push came to shove they were both there for each other as that shoulder to lean on as real friends.

  3. As for ATWT's super couple of John & Bob...damn growing watching these respectful doctors fighting over everything was OUTSTANDING! Two powerful actors knowing each character's well and when John returned the underlining seething still was present. Both always had and showed each respect for their medical knowledge. It was unusal for Bob or John going to each other for help on a diagnosis of a patient and treatment.
