Who is Flo Fulton on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’?

Flo is a The Bold and the Beautiful bad girl turned heroine. In January 2019, she becomes an accomplice in Reese Buckingham’s (Wayne Brady) baby switch with Beth Spencer (Madeline Valdez).

Flo stayed in Los Angeles and had connections to other characters. She reunites with her high-school sweetheart Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks), whom she never stopped loving.

After Reese and Flo’s baby scam was uncovered, the Logans shunned Flo and Wyatt dumped her to return to his ex-girlfriend Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope). However, Flo redeemed herself when she donated a kidney to save her aunt Katie Logan (Heather Tom). Wyatt then broke up with Sally to reunite with Flo, yet their reunion was cut short because of Sally’s scheme.

Believing Sally was dying, Wyatt returned to her to make her final days memorable. However, Flo learns of Sally’s deception but is kidnapped before she tells anyone. Wyatt rescues Flo, and the couple reunites while Sally leaves for Genoa City. After their ordeal, Wyatt proposes to Flo, ready to start a future with her.

Will the character ever return to ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’?

Flo and her fiancé Wyatt have been missing from The Bold and the Beautiful. The reason for the absence is that Bowden and Brooks were working on other projects. Brooks has returned to the the series and was featured on the July 21, 2022, episode. Meanwhile, it’s been over a year since Flo was seen.

Speculation about Bowden’s status with the show has been in question. In December 2021, fans noticed Bowden’s name was missing from the closing credits. Bowden debunked rumors of her exit, and executive producer Brad Bell promised a big storyline for Flo and Wyatt. Yet, Flo’s absence and Wyatt not mentioning her has fans believing she may be gone for good.

Whether Flo returns remains to be seen. However, when and if she does return, the show can create drama for her and Wyatt. Flo could return to her bad girl roots by cheating on Wyatt with either Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) or Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Also, they could create a feud with Hope, who never forgave her cousin for the baby switch.
