There's just something about a dude who knows his way around a laptop, tablet and/or a smartphone! This #CyberMonday we're counting down five soap opera computer geeks we'd let hack into our accounts any day!
No. 5: Damian Spinelli, General Hospital
Whether he's hacking into the systems of rival mobsters of the Corinthos crime family, or using his skills to dig up dirt on evildoers as Port Charles, New York's go-to private dick, Damian Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) has proven time and time again he's the "Jackal of Cyber Space" on General Hospital. We're sure his tech savvy will come in handy this #CyberMonday, as he selects gifts online for Connie, the infant daughter he was recently awared sole custody of.
No. 4: Petey Cortlandt, All My Children
He may have inherited his love for old school electronics from billionaire dad Palmer Cortlandt (the late James Mitchell), but All My Children's Petey (Robert Scott Wilson) made quite the user name for himself when he began dominating the world of app development. Now if he will simply create a social media game where Facebook fans can score points by managing to get him undressed in the least amount of time.
No. 3: Zach Florrick, The Good Wife
Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) wouldn't know her ChumHum from her Scabbit on The Good Wife, if it wasn't for her whip smart son Zach (Graham Phillips). When her ex-partners at Lockhart-Gardner discovered Alicia and Cary (Matt Czuchry) were planning to exit with most of their top clients, they moved quickly to stop Alicia from accessing her files. One call to trusty Zach, and Alicia's files were backed up on her at-home cloud — whatever that means!
Zach also sprung into action when a cyber Peeping Tom was taking naughty pics of his little sister via her PC's camera. What's not to Facebook "like" about this kilobyte-loving kid? Oh, and Phillips is 20-years-old in real life, so it's perfectly acceptable—and legal—to fantasize about file sharing a little "Computer Love" with him!
No. 2: Nolan Ross, Revenge
Hampton's scheme queen Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) would have been stranded on the Information Highway years ago on ABC's Revenge, if not for her trusty search-engine-optimized sidekick Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann). Emily's dad was the first person to believe in Nolan's PC prowess and gave him the start-up money for NolCorp.
Although he lost his company—due to those wicked Graysons— and temporarily swore off hacking, Nolan is now back to his old typeface tricks. Now if the binary system-operating bisexual can just find the right man (or woman?) to settle down with.
No. 1: Kevin Fisher, The Young and the Restless
Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) sure has come a long way since he tricked a teenage Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) into giving up her V-card to him, during an online creep-mance. While Genoa City's favorite hacker has collected a few more criminal charges since then on The Young and the Restless, it appears K-Fish is resolved to use his powers for good these days.
Kev has even taken a job with the Genoa City Police Department, helping muy caliente cop Chavez (Ignacio Serricchio) chase down leads via the web. We'd be much more interested, though, if Kevin hacked his way into Chavez' Grindr account!
