VOTE: Best Soap Couple of the Decade





As the 00’s come to an end and we look forward to the 2010’s Daytime Confidential pauses to look back at the best of the past decade. In the coming days Daytime Confidential readers will be able to vote for their favorite soap actors and characters in a variety of categories.

Voting ends December 24 at midnight and readers' votes in all the categories will be discussed in a “Best of the Decade” podcast to air the week of January 28.

Whether they are General Hospital’s Patrick and Robin, As the World Turns' Luke and Noah, Days of our Lives’ Bo and Hope or any of the many other popular soap couples, they heat up our screens, inspire fanbases and drive us nuts when they aren’t together.

Open voting has ended.

So where are Steve and Kayla from Days? They are the soap couple of the century let alone this decade!

Of course I voted for JaSam.  I wish I could've voted for more than one couple because I would've voted for Scrubs.

I also agree where is Liz and Lucky.  Like other viewers posted they were actually a couple.  A great couple at one point.  I don't understand how jason and Liz are on there but yet they weren't an actually couple and Liz and Lucky were left off.

I voted for Liason, the "non-couple" gets my vote everytime. They are also the ones to come out ahead in most polls.  With that being said, why can't TPTB see it too.  GO LIASON!!

Show some love to the soaps cancelled during this decade: Alison & Rafe, from Port Charles, have to be one of the hottest, most passionate soap couplings ever created. The rivalry between Rafe, Alison, Caleb, and Livvie could have carried a soap for years to come and the cliff hanger of Alison being pregnant with Caleb's child should have pushed that soap into continuing at least until that story was resolved....

As far as Passions, Ethan/Theresa gotta get some love. Theresa's singular determination and Ethan's loyalty to her, despite her machinations, were great to watch for nine years.

Guiding Light had kissing cousins carry story for two years! Tammy/Jonathon were nothing but fire for that show.

Awwww....I'm so sad there were so few who shared my Greenlee/Leo love.  Sad

I'm happy to see that there was a strong show of support for Scrubs!  There were WAY too many great couples to choose from, IMO, but I guess that's why they're competing for best couple of the decade, LOL.

This was hard for me. Its either Liason, the couple that hooked me on GH way back when or Otalia, who has held my investment over the last year. Otalia is for sure the soap couple of the year but Liason's story has spanned the decade in some way or another. So Liason gets my vote with Otalia coming in a very close second.

I'm with Starrgirlfish... most definitley Liason.  For all the reasons she gave.  I don't know of any other starcrossed lovers that have generated so much passion in their fan base.

Going with the most classic couple for the past decade and beyond with no recasts and the same undeniable chemistry,  Bill Bell's Nicholas and Sharon.    This is the couple that fairytale love is built around.  For some it might not work since some don't believe in fairytale love anymore but for me,  I am not so jaded that I can't appreciate the classic romeo and juliet story.   Joshua and Sharon still have that beautiful haunting chemistry that can be felt w/out even touching.

Other faves:

Neil/Dru  - VR and KSJ sizzled! 
Todd/Tea
Jason/Sam

LIASON all the way. The chemisrty the trust the love the friendship.
These two steamed up the screen just as friends and put it in fire with NOP and then it continued.

LIAOSN is the COUPLE OF THE DECADE Smile

Liason all the way!

I think any people who share a child and were engaged count as a couple. To debate that is a little idiotic. The fact that after ten years with tons of starts and stops people are still rooting for them to overcome everything and be together, that says more than anything I could come up with.

I'd love to vote for my favorite couple but everytime I come on to DC, I just get the results of the voting.  Doesn't matter what I do, delete cookies, refresh, restart my computer, or use another computer, nothing works.  And I know it's just not me having this problem.  Somethings not right!  This is very fustrating, to say the least!!!

I had to vote for my Otalia, but I wanted to give a shout out to the Liason fans!

You guys always give us a run for our money!

The whole lot of you are nice, polite, and love your couple so much!
Just makes me <3 you all!

Even though they will only be a couple for a couple of months this decade, I had to vote Kish. LOL 

 

I agree with you 1000%.......and so do countless other OLTL viewers so just ignore those rude comments as that is strictly their own opinion and besides they could very well be a Nuke fan now facing major competition.........

The chemistry between these actors is truly amazing and the reason why their popularity is growing fast and they are considered one of the best couples ever seen on daytime....GO KISH...

"most underwhelming and chemistry-less couple in daytime HISTORY".....

uuuuh...projecting much Amamal? I don't know what couple you have been watching but Kyle and Fish are the definition of chemistry and passion! They may not be your cup of tea but no need to hate. KISH is awesome! And they seem to at least be getting the most votes from the OLTL gang, even if they have only been around for a few months.

Actually, Lizzie, I'm not as good as you think I am.  Unfortunately, I have to log in to vote, so once I log in, it shows that I've already voted.  I'm afraid I can't vote on your behalf. 

Darn Daytime Confidential and its voting efficiencies!!!  No hanging chads here!  ;-)  Sad

HI, TV, Gord -- Just saw your message.  I really appreciated your offer and the fact that you would do that for me without hesitation.  That was so nice of you.  While my couple is not number one, they are a strong number 2 and that says alot.

My best wishes to you and your family for a joyous holiday season!

Hmm this says I voted when I didnt. I would have voted for JaSam, but I dont expect them to win this one, not on this particular board at least. Thankfully the full audience doesnt mirror the preferences at dc.
