We were a little surprised by the results of a poll we did on the popularity among fans of Franco and Elizabeth–aka, Friz. No offense, Friz fans!
A Vocal Majority!
A whopping 81 percent of Soap Cities (SC) readers love Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) together! This was surprising to us because the two are an unorthodox couple, mostly due to of Franco’s past.
We love that fans love this story of change and forgiveness. After all, Franco has had, shall we say, that colorful history, with multiple murders and other malfeasances among his crimes. But fans can apparently learn to forgive and forget. And they love an unorthodox, well-told love story, as evidenced by these excerpts from comments readers made on our poll.
SC reader Stephen Parker wrote: “The Franco/Elizabeth pairing is one of the most refreshing aspects of the current entire GH storylines. The two actors have wonderfully quirky chemistry together and their union is a masterful example of ‘anything is possible.'”
Jamie, another reader, wrote:” The slow build up of Franco and Elizabeth is amazing.”
A Sizable Minority
Seventeen percent of our readers don’t care for these two together. They think they are creepy and not going to achieve supercouple status any time soon. They think it’s just not believable that Elizabeth would be with Franco after all he’s done.
Then there’s an even smaller minority–two percent–who don’t care either way. They’re sick of GH screen time being taken up by Friz and just want the show to focus on other storylines. Will they or won’t they? This group doesn’t care!
Moving on, this group says!
