It looks like Peter Bergman gets as bored with seeing Smilin' Jack Abbott always scripted to lose against The Mustache, aka Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) as we do. Here's what he said to Fancast's Sara Bibel on Genoa City's continuously predictable Clash of the Cosmetics Titans:
Is Jack going to be allowed a victory? He’s suffered a lot of defeats the past couple years.
I’ve been doing this twenty years now and I’ve been wondering if that was ever going to happen, too. And I’ve stopped wondering. For the audience, I would think they’d say, ‘Oh, Jack’s going up against Victor. We can see this coming down Broadway.’ It’s the same thing all over again. I’m waiting for the next group of writers to come in and say, ‘What if Jack actually won?’ It hasn’t happened in twenty years. I don’t know.
Sigh, Peter, Peter, Peter! If you want Jack to win, you have to work on your number of magazine covers, big guy!
