(No. 10) EJ DiMera, Days of Our Lives
Who would have ever guessed someone conceived by an Elvis-impersonating Stefano (Joe Mascolo)—inseminating sperm into his adopted daughter’s toothy doppelganger—would one day grow up to be so snooty and entitled? Don’t get us wrong, we love some EJ DiMera (James Scott) on Days of Our Lives, but he can be a bit of brat!
From coercion to kidnapping, EJ has done it all to prove himself to his beloved, bazillionaire “Father”. Now that EJ’s DiMera lineage is in question, we wonder if he will keep that upper lip quite so stiff? As long as another part of his anatomy stays stiff anytime he’s in the presence of one Samantha Brady (Alison Sweeney), we’ll still be watching this poor little (not so) rich (anymore) boy tale play out.
(No. 9) Adam Chandler Jr. , All My Children
Adam Chandler Jr. was his mother Dixie Cooney’s (Cady McClain) “sunshine” when he was a tyke, but by his late teen years, he was a raging SOB-in-training, much to the delight of his ruthless, mega rich father Adam Chandler (David Canary). What happened to the sweet, blonde moppet whom Dixie’s true love Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight) raised up as his own? We’ll tell you what happened, Babe Carey (Alexa Havins)!
The moment nubile, blonde bombshell Babe awe-shucked her way into the lives of an adult JR (Jacob Young) and his stepbrother Jamie (Justin Bruening), the young man’s dark side was awakened, launching a poor little rich boy saga fans of All My Children would never forget, especially since the soap's series finale cliffhanger was the culmination of it!
