12. Amber Moore
Amber Moore first appeared on Bold and the Beautiful, Y&R’s sister show, and was portrayed as a gold digger and schemer. When she made the jump to Genoa City in late 2006, Amber was pretty much up to her old tricks; however, as time wore on, Moore would evolve into a very decent person with a nice connection to Katherine Chancellor. She not only won the love of Y&R viewers, but also the respect of many in town.
