Untitled[edit]

Is this remark about Italy really relevant? I guess it could be said for every country. For example, in French, the name is Top Models Lvr 09:25, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)

By the way, i am French and I can confirm you that the French title is not "Top Models" but "Amour, Gloire et Beauté" (Love, glory and beauty) !

I think it is. The show is wildly popular there, but it would be in Francophone countries, too. I can add that. Mike H 12:51, Sep 9, 2004 (UTC)

In Quebec, it's called Top Modeles, in France, it's called Amour, Gloire et Beaute.

DVD[edit]

21 episodes have been released on DVD! Apparently it has only been released in Australia. Jleonau (talk) 12:17, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Speculation on actors[edit]

Actors who have participated in taping but not aired aren't current cast members. They will be when they get aired. What if someone important in the plot dies? How can one be sure the previously taped episodes won't be revised or re-recorded? The same priniciple applies for actors that are leaving. Perhaps something could happen that would postpone the leaving of the character for another month. S/he would still exist, but not be shown. Encyclopedias contain facts, not speculation. --jag123 08:31, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Actor names in the first paragraph[edit]

I removed the actor names because there were a literal shitload of them, and made it harder to read. Mike H. That's hot 21:20, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Actor names[edit]

I have re-inserted the names of only the actors who are not mentioned in the cast list.

Show Description[edit]

The fact of continuous incestuous sole story lines and the lack of minorities (with the exception of a homeless african-american woman and an african-american club manager and his disabled brother in the earlier years) is more than notable, insulting and deplorable!!! --[User: jewelwms]~~

That's a bit POV. I don't think we need to go out of our way to note the lack of minorities. That's not exactly an isolated thing for soaps. Besides, you might remember that Kristen Forrester's adopted son is black. Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 19:26, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

The story is just a bunch of reaccuring plots. I think it is boring.

Bad Plot[edit]

Due to several really bad, repetitive, improbable and plain illogical plots, like the perpetual Brooke-Taylor-Ridge triangle, the constant fluctuation of Brook's protagonist/antagonist nature and the constant unnessessary abductions (the ones by Prince Omar, Morgan, Sheila, etc.), I have concluded that The Bold and The Beautiful is too monotonous to watch. Are all soaps so badly written? --[User: Vader1941]~~

No. Try watching Y&R. Kogsquinge 02:36, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

What does this have to do with the article? Go to an discussion forum if you want to give your opinion about the show. This section is for the article itself. --84.230.180.67 16:47, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

CJ and Karen returning?[edit]

Has it been confirmed that Joanna Johnson and Mick Cain are returning? I find it hard to beleive.Kogsquinge 00:07, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

FOX TV Serbia[edit]

Ladies and gentlemen, i would like to announce that The Bold And The Beautiful is showing on my cable TV providers version of FOX. RocketMaster 17:46, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

No surprise it's FOX for such a show 85.217.44.242 21:14, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

I'm finding that some editors are using ordinal suffixes when writing dates, such as February 2nd, 2007. This is not how dates are normally written. Please write as February 2, 2007. Dbart 22:12, 2 February 2007 (UTC)


Merge from Los Angeles, California (The Bold and the Beautiful)[edit]

I suggest Los Angeles, California (The Bold and the Beautiful) be merged into this article. --Flex (talk|contribs) 13:34, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Pamela Douglas[edit]

It has been confirmed that Alley Mills is on on contract, so why is her name under the recurring list?

Alley Mills must be put on the contract list.
Done.

Thanx, but could it please be add that in 2006 she was a guest, intead of just 2007-. Her status should be 2006 (guest), 2007-

{{editprotected}} This article is only semiprotected; any username more than a few days old can edit it. CMummert · talk 17:38, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Why is Alley Mills still in recurring. She signed a contract at the end of last year??? Can someone change it?

I have removed Alley Mills from the cast list. I think it's safe to say she won't be returning given that she has been removed from the opening credits and is no longer in the cast list at www.boldandbeautiful.com. Kogsquinge 01:11, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Constantine Maroulis?[edit]

Where is Constantine as Constantine Parros? He should be in the contract players. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.12.244.9 (talk) 02:26, 16 May 2007 (UTC).


CBS Soaps in Depth confirms that Constantine is on contract.

B&B's CURRENT WRITING TEAM[edit]

Why do you have Hope dressing so frumpy? Please dress her for her age. March 2018

Background and history needs some cleanup[edit]

This "Background and history" section has been in bad shape for a long time.. I tried to help by translating the parallel article on the Hebrew Wikipedia (which also needs cleanup). Anyone whom belives he could help us perfect this section to meet Wikipedia's quality standards is welcome to try. Acidburn24m 05:10, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Who's the mystrey man?[edit]

This image. Top row, second from right (Annual Cast picture of the bold and the beautiful. season 1 - 1987). original source. Help me :-) Gridge 19:54, 1 August 2007 (UTC).

That is Stephen Shortridge. He played Dave, the detective Brooke was originally in love with in the first episodes. Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 21:11, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! Gridge 19:33, 3 August 2007 (UTC).

Request for comment on articles for individual television episodes and characters[edit]

A request for comments has been started that could affect the inclusion or exclusion of episode and character, as well as other fiction articles. Please visit the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(fiction)#Final_adoption_as_a_guideline. Ikip (talk) 11:22, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Senior Cast Members[edit]

Okay, I don't know what idiot I've been battling with but let me give you a definition of what a senior cast member is. A senior cast member is a cast member who has been on the show since the beginning and continues to today. Therefore, Hunter Tylo is not a senior cast member. It says in the cast section that Tylo has been in the cast since 1990. Now I don't know if my chronology skills need work but I would say that if the show started in 1987 and Tylo joined in 1990, she has not been on the show since the beginning. Please do not list her under the senior cast members. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.23.108.88 (talk) 21:51, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

B&B and GL and Running Time and YouTube[edit]

Some idiot has been posting that B&B is expanding to an hour after Guiding Light ends in September. Currently, absolutely NO STATEMENTS have been made suggesting this to be true. Furthermore, there is NO INFORMATION about Guiding Light becoming a YouTube soap opera. Would the idiot vandalizing this page with the B&B and GL information please stop!

Posted 7/2/09 I agree! Nowhere has it been said that B&B is expanding to an hour. I edited the broadcast history accordingly. Cosmo2006 (talk) 15:05, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

An episode per day?[edit]

Since it started, over 6000 episodes have been broadcasted.
I calculated a little, and got an average of 4.8 episodes per week. Ain't there any summer or winter breaks in the show? 85.217.39.79 (talk) 23:42, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

"Impact" section[edit]

This section clearly has problems. General readers are unsure about how much effect storylines made. Since I'm not an avid watcher of The Bold and the Beautiful, I hope someone here is an expert of the show and out-of-universe coverages in non-primary sources. --George Ho (talk) 18:50, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Someone deleted the whole section, I put it back in with the comment, many TV series are summarized like this and much of the rest of the article is unsourced." Raquel_Baranow (talk) 16:00, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
That someone was me, and I did it again not to start an edit war, but because, well, WP:OTHERSTUFF notwithstanding, many of the TV series articles aren't like this. Also, if you think the section should be kept, how about backing it up with some sources? Erpert Who is this guy? | Wanna talk about it? 00:31, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:The Bold and the Beautiful/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

B-class because it would be GA material if it had references and footnotes. Mid-importance within fashion as long-running fashion-based soap, popular internationally. Daniel Case 15:21, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Wrong Link[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Stich_(director) should be linked instead of the tennis player https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Stich — Preceding unsigned comment added by Blaztard (talkcontribs) 14:08, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Reynolds Link seems to point to an incorrect Rachel Reynolds. (2019 05 15)

Suggestions to improve accuracy[edit]

Section:"Start and development of the series"...

Section: "Complementing families" (last paragraph)...

  • (major) "Caroline Spencer"... Died mid-March 2019. The page at the Caroline link agrees, "...it is revealed that Caroline had died following a blood clot."
  • (minor) For clarity and consistency on the page, rather than "Original character Bill Spencer's children", use "Bill Spencer, Sr.'s children".
  • (minor) Phrase "make up the Spencer family" isn't accurate (since there are other characters that make up the family, now written out of the show), AND the makeup of the family is already described via the earlier "Spencer family" hyperlink. Instead, maybe use something like, "are currently involved in the business to follow / support the first sentence." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.185.39.220 (talk) 16:27, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
