Days of our Lives is trying a series of different couple pairings to see which ones get the fans most excited, but considering how many chemistry tests happen in Salem, it’s hard to pinpoint which one is really setting hearts afire!
Days of our Lives Polling
Luckily, you’ve had a few weeks to watch and evaluate, and here’s where the majority of you stand on the most important issue on daytime – who is our next Salem supercouple?
DOOL: Bad Girl/Good Boy
Exactly half of you, 50%, are rooting for Nicole Walker Brady (Arianne Zucker) and Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). They’ve both been through the wringer. He broke up with Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso), lost David, then fell into a relationship that can only end badly – and criminally – with Ava Vitale (Tamara Braun).
Meanwhile, Nicole spent a year waiting for Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) to come back from doing good in Africa, but, along the way, she managed to fall into bed with Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer). So, bye-bye, marriage. These two broken hearts can likely heal each other.
Days of our Lives: Bad to the Bone
Ava and Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) already had a professional relationship, they might as well have a personal one, 31% of the audience suggests. Neither one expects the other to be a saint…or even a decent human. With these two, there will be few apologies and lots of schemes and plans. Which is always more fun for the rest of us.
DAYS Italian Stallion
Give Ava and Rafe a chance, 19% insist. She hasn’t done anything horrible to him…yet. And she’s a good cook. And pleasant to look at. And she doesn’t let Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) throw her weight around. Rafe and Ava are exploring where this relationship might go, and they need more time to settle in and really get a sense of each other, before tossing him off to somebody else. Nicole will still be there if this implodes, so sit back and let the Ava and Rafe love wash over you.
