12. Brooke And Bill

“Brill” lands at the bottom of this list due to the outrageous nature of their relationship. They’ve got great chemistry together, but this coupling was contentious from the start. These two carried on behind Brooke’s sister and Bill’s wife Katie’s back, making them a toxic combination. But after witnessing a video of Bill and Brooke kissing, Katie told Bill they were through and she wouldn’t take him back. And with Brooke’s marriage to Ridge all but over, will Bill and Brooke turn to each other again?

11. Quinn and Carter

Quinn and Carter bonded just as Eric was developing a serious mistrust of his wife. As a result, Eric wasn’t feeling very frisky in the bedroom, which sent Quinn directly into Carter’s arms. These two had a passionate run — they were physically in tune with each other and emotionally connected. Unfortunately, just when the couple had the green-light to go public with their relationship, B&B writers ran out of ideas for Quinn and tried to put her on recurring status. Actress Rena Sofer then decided to leave the soap, putting an end to “Quarter”.

10. Steffy And Liam

Steffy and Liam have broken up and gotten back together many times since they first met ten years ago. Liam professes to love Steffy, but the problem is, he always goes running back to Hope at the first opportunity. He’s broken Steffy’s heart many times over the years and although there are still some Steam fans left, most Steffy fans are happy she’s finally moved on with Finn. Could viewers have seen the last of Steam?

9. Taylor And Ridge

Taylor first appeared on B&B in 1990 and she and Ridge started dating shortly after Ridge’s wife Caroline passed away. “Tridge” was quite possibly one of the most popular super couples the B&B has ever seen. Ridge and Taylor had great chemistry between them and were on and off for years. But Taylor always had to compete for Ridge’s affections and although he did choose her occasionally, Brooke usually won his heart.

8. Sally And Thomas

When Thomas returned to B&B in March 2019, many fans were hoping it meant Sally and Thomas would reunite. Instead, they saw a Thomas who had blinders on. He was set on winning over Hope and barely spared a glance for Sally. But now that Hope has committed herself to Liam and Sally’s relocated to Genoa City, will viewers ever see this popular couple reunite? It’s always possible!

7. Shauna And Ridge

Ridge and Shauna weren’t together for very long but fans liked their chemistry and sense of fun. Shauna was in love with the Forrester designer and he enjoyed her company and seemed captivated by her. While Ridge and Shauna got married during their night out on the town in Vegas, it’s a shame they kept Ridge in the dark about Brooke’s attempts to save their relationship. Could Shauna swoop in and nab Ridge?

6. Sally And Wyatt

Sally and Wyatt were both nursing broken hearts when they ran into each other at Bikini Bar. Sally had been abandoned by Thomas when they were in New York and she had returned to LA to drown her sorrows. Wyatt was in a similar place, having just been dumped by Katie. Knowing she had nowhere else to go, Wyatt told her she could stay at his place for a night. Then before they knew it, Sally and Wyatt ended up in bed together. This popular couple seemed like they were headed to the altar, until Flo arrived on the scene.

5. Stephanie And Eric

The matriarch and patriarch of the Forrester family, Stephanie and Eric were one of the most popular couples on the B&B, until Stephanie passed away in 2012. Despite their often turbulent relationship, due to Eric’s habitual cheating and Stephanie’s obsession with controlling everything and everyone, these two always made their way back to each other.

4. Maya And Rick

Rick and Maya endured several breakups and reconciliations over the years and were still together when they left LA for the Forrester Creations office in Paris. But when Maya returned to LA alone in December 2018, she shared the news that she and Rick had broken up. Although B&B’s Executive Producer Bradley Bell keeps hinting this popular couple will return, so far we’ve seen nada.

3. Quinn And Eric

Their relationship was an unconventional one and started out on rocky ground, but Quinn and Eric are one of the most popular couples on B&B. They have their ups and downs and Quinn even cheated on him, not once but twice (with Ridge, then Carter). But “Queric” seems to be able to overcome any obstacle placed in their path and they remain together to this day.

2. Hope And Liam

Hope and Liam have always enjoyed what seems like an eternal spark between them. They’re friends as well as lovers, which makes their love an enduring one. Even when this popular couple is apart, they always seem to be drawn to one another. Lope has been married three times, and most recently tied the knot again in March 2020. Will this couple finally get their happily ever after?

1. Brooke And Ridge

This popular couple has been on and off for years now, having first met at a party Brooke’s family catered at the Forrester estate 33 years ago. They were immediately attracted to each other and have been married countless times. Brooke believes Ridge is and always will be her destiny. And although spoilers tease that Ridge has once again moved on with Taylor, “Bridge” is never apart for long. Will these two reunite some day? Keep watching B&B to find out!
