The Bold and the Beautiful has had some pretty spicy couples over the years. But which couples — or, perhaps, throuples — are the greatest of all time? In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the notorious holiday of love, we decided to take a look at the CBS soap’s history of pairing some of the most beautiful people in Los Angeles with one another. Did your favorite couple make the list? And who is the hottest couple in all of The Bold and the Beautiful history? Let’s take a look.

5. Stephanie and Eric are a classic ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ couple

In terms of classic The Bold and the Beautiful couples, few — if any — compare to Stephanie and Eric, the matriarch and patriarch (respectively) of the Forrester family. Thanks to Eric’s love of fashion and a loan from Stephanie’s parents, Forrester Creations was born.

These days, fans were feeling sorry for Eric due to his inability to “perform” for Quinn in the bedroom. But back in the day, Eric was a total cad. He cheated on Stephanie constantly, and their marriage suffered because of it. What’s more, Stephanie was a control freak and had a really nasty habit of wanting to micromanage every aspect of her children’s lives.

Despite their faults, the pair always gravitated back to one another, somehow. And when Stephanie died of cancer in 2012, Eric was right by her side until the bittersweet end.

4. ‘Dollar Bill’ and ‘Dollar Bill’

Good old William Spencer — aka Dollar Bill. He never met a deal he didn’t like. Ever since Don Diamont joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful, he’s been portraying the sexy Spencer firebrand who has been loved by a lot of women (including poor, long-suffering Katie). But through the years, Dollar Bill proved there’s only room for one person in his world: Dollar Bill.

3. Steffy and Liam and Hope

If Brooke and Ridge and Taylor was the throuple that got everyone tuning in to The Bold and the Beautiful in the 1980s, Steffy and Liam and Hope’s pas-de-troix got the next generation of fans buzzing. Steffy Forrester proved she was every bit her grandmother’s baby when she would engage in the worst of the worst type of behavior to get — and keep — her man. Today, though, Steffy is happily married to Dr. John Finnegan, and Liam and Hope are happy together…for now.

2. Sheila Carter and Sheila Carter

Like “Dollar Bill” Spencer, Sheila Carter only loves one person on this planet: Sheila Carter. As of 2019, there are about 4 million people in the city of Los Angeles — yet Sheila (played with hilarious abandon by Kimberlin Brown) believes that the entire city — nay, the entire universe — revolves around her. Dollar Bill may be a womanizer with questionable parenting skills, but Sheila Carter is a straight-up villainess. You either love to hate her, or hate to love her — but either way you slice the bread, Sheila Carter loves herself. Yes, girl!

1. Brooke and Ridge are the top ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ couple of all time

They’ve been through the best of times, and they’ve been through the worst of times. And these days, they’ve been going through the worst of times. But through it all, there was one constant on The Bold and the Beautiful: Brooke and Ridge’s love for one another.

Brooke has loved Ridge from the minute she saw him working as a waiter in a country club. And though they can’t get it together for themselves — or each other — they always find their way back into each other’s arms. Fans simply can’t stand the thought of them being with other people.

In short, they’re a staple on the show. And that’s why Brooke Logan and Ridge Forrester takes the top spot as the greatest The Bold and the Beautiful couple of all time.
