Last week, new episodes of “The Bold and the Beautiful” aired for the first time in three months.
Production on the CBS soap opera was shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. But with production resuming on most daytime shows, fans can’t wait to see the return of their favorite soaps.
“The Bold and the Beautiful” returned with a bang last week, creating lots of drama.
Viewers are tuning in to see their favorite characters find romance in the midst of all the drama.
While soap fans do like happy endings, they don’t want to see them for all characters.
B&B is filled with a lot of characters that fans have a love and hate relationship with.
So let’s take a look at a few of the most hated characters on B&B.
When it comes to the most hated characters on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Liam Spencer is at the top of the list.
For the past 10 years, B&B fans have watched his never-ending love triangle with Hope Logan and Steffy Forrester.
While Liam is now considered the new leading man on the show, fans have come to detest the character.
Fans describe Liam as a waffler who is always bouncing between Hope and Steffy. When one relationship ends with one woman, he quickly moves on to the other.
Liam has drawn criticism for not being able to make up his mind and continuing to put Hope and Steffy through so much heartache.
Liam is now married to Hope and they’ve got their own family to raise with their daughter Beth and Hope’s stepson Douglas. But Liam is still going to be in Steffy’s life since they share a daughter. Plus, when he learns about Steffy’s new man Dr. John Finnegan, odds are he’s going to be green with envy.
Flo Fulton was introduced to B&B fans when she became embroiled in the baby switch storyline for Hope Logan’s daughter Beth.
Dr. Buckingham stole Hope’s baby and would later persuade an unsuspecting Steffy to adopt the girl. Flo was brought in to pretend to be the baby’s birth mother and sign away her rights.
Soon Flo became a central character when it was revealed that she and Wyatt Spencer were high-school sweethearts. Flo realized the love was still there between her and Wyatt and plotted to win him back from Sally Spectra.
Meanwhile, it was later learned Flo was a member of a central family. Flo learned her father was the late Storm Logan, and she was quickly welcomed into the family.
But there was a problem, Flo’s cousin was Hope Logan, the woman whose baby Dr. Buckingham switched.
Despite feeling remorse for her role in the baby switch, Flo kept quiet for fear of punishment. However, when Liam discovered the truth, she finally confessed.
After the truth was revealed, Wyatt and the Logans disowned Flo.
However, she managed to work her way back into their good graces when she donated a kidney to her aunt Katie.
Wyatt eventually forgave Flo and they got back together. However, the couple is being kept apart by Sally’s evil plot.
Fans are upset with the recent Sally, Wyatt, and Flo storyline. The main reason is because Sally’s being turned into a bad person, while Flo is being groomed to be the new heroine of the show.
Many fans believe it’s awful how Sally is going to be criticized for her actions, even though Flo gets a free pass for her past misdeeds.

Brooke Logan has been a central part of “The Bold and the Beautiful” since its debut in 1987.
Her romance with Ridge Forrester is legendary, and her feud with Stephanie Forrester is one of the most iconic in soap opera history.
Throughout the decades, fans have formed a love/hate relationship with Brooke.
While she’s considered B&B’s leading lady and heroine, her actions have been less than admirable.
She’s had relationships with most of the men in the Forrester family, got pregnant by her daughter’s husband, slept with her sister’s husband, and constantly interfered in Ridge’s marriage to Taylor.
Even though Brooke is still beloved by some fans, in recent years her actions have turned off viewers.
Brooke’s interference in the Hope, Liam, and Steffy saga has fans furious. Viewers were upset with the way Brooke criticizes Ridge’s daughter Steffy.
Brooke was quick to judge Steffy over her affair with Bill, yet fans believed Brooke had no right to criticize given her past.
Ms. Logan’s hypocritical attitude has become a major turn off for many B&B fans.
One character that “The Bold and the Beautiful” fans have come to hate is Thomas Forrester.
Thomas is the son of Ridge Forrester and Taylor Hayes. Last year, Thomas returned to town with his son Douglas following the death of girlfriend Caroline Spencer.
When Douglas took a shining to Hope Logan, who he considered a mother figure, Thomas became obsessed with winning Hope’s heart.
Thomas pulled a lot of manipulative tricks including running Emma Barber off the road and keeping the secret about Beth being alive.
After Thomas fell from a cliff it looked like he was headed towards a redemption arc.
However, his obsession towards Hope continued to grow as they agreed to share custody of Douglas.
Thomas amped up his plot when he romanced Zoe Buckingham in order to make Hope jealous. On the day of Thomas and Zoe’s wedding, Hope came down in a wedding dress much to Thomas’ delight. However, Hope exposed Thomas’ plot in front of everyone.
After his plan was exposed, many fans are wondering what’s next for Thomas.
He used to be one of B&B’s lovable characters, however fans are appalled at the way he’s been written since his return.
Viewers keep hoping for a redemption storyline with Thomas going back to being a good boy. However, given the way the show’s mishandled storylines, odds are they’ll continue to make Thomas crazier as his obsession with Hope grows.
