Peter Bergman reveals Jack’s one true love on Young and the Restless, and the second one too!
The Young and the Restless has been famous for many things. And the iconic love stories it has created over the years have got to be on the top of the list. Y&R has been on the air for more than four decades now. And over the course of time, major characters like Jack Abbott and Victor Newman have gotten a chance to romance over a dozen women. Speaking of Jack, specifically, you may know this character has fallen in love quite a lot of times. And while he may be without a partner as of late, he sure has enjoyed a few genuine love stories in the past.
Peter Bergman gushing over Jack and Nikki’s relationship
There are women who will always hold a special place in Jack’s heart. One of those women is Nikki Reed Newman, someone who is married to his biggest arch-rival as of late.
Nikki and Jack made a really cute couple. They had some decent chemistry and had also been married a few times. However, they could not end up as a super couple.
“Jack was very much in love with Nikki at one point. And the fact that he could not, in the end, have her is something he carries with him all the time. Any time you see Jack alone in a room with Nikki, he’s well aware that that was one of his great loves.”
When Nikki was with Jack, she disliked Victor. However, once she started feeling things for Victor, she could not help but choose him. The silver lining is that, despite Jack and Victor’s rivalry, Nikki remains good friends with Jack to this day.
Phyllis will always be the one for Jack
Jack has accepted the fact that Nikki is better off with Victor than him. But there is someone he still hasn’t gotten over – and that’s Phyllis, obviously.
Phyllis and Jack have had an incredible on-again and off-again romance over the years. They seemed like a perfect match for each other as they were both on the same level and wavelength.
“Phyllis, I would say, was the great love of Jack’s life. He gave himself completely totally to that. And truth be told, it can well be said that Jack and Phyllis did not fall out of love with each other. It just became too painful. The Victor stuff, the Marco stuff, the Billy stuff… all just too painful. And they had to walk away,” Peter mused.

Regardless of everything, Jack and Phyllis are always drawn back to each other. Jack has always had a spot for Phyllis in his heart that nobody else can take. And while their reunion is proving to be a complicated matter, everyone can agree that both of them still love each other.
“There is no one in Genoa City who knows Jack better than Phyllis and the reverse is true. No one,” Peter stated. “They have been through far too much together. I love Nicholas and Phyllis together and there are fun things there, but Jack and Phyllis went through so much together. There’s no one in town that knows the other better than Jack or Phyllis.”
Peter Bergman answers why Jack Abbott is still single
Every time Jack has loved any woman, he has loved her wholeheartedly. Yet again he hasn’t been able to meet his one true end game to this day.
Speaking to Soaps in Depth, Peter revealed the reason why his alter-ego may be single, and we think he couldn’t be any more right.
“I think Jack dives in face-first and that has been his problem. He is completely totally smitten and doesn’t do all the work to moderate that, to build on that. He thinks he can stay the same and love somebody like that,” Peter said.
Well, Peter knows what exactly Jack has to do to get a lasting love. But will Jack ever crack the code himself? Stay connected with us to find out.
