On the SN & MBE versus the DHs, I think you have to also lump in PR & KA into the 'budget' equation behind this asinine decision. All speculation and my opinion of course but of the three vet couples, the largest fan bases go to B&H and J&M - mostly due to their longevity with the show. Yes Steve and Kayla had a huge fan base back in the day, but the botched up return didn't draw back in everyone. |
Of who has the highest salaries, likely by far it is the DHs. And of age, of both actors as a couple, again it'd go to the DHs (I think Drake is younger than SN but I mean as a couple). So in terms of which vet couple do you eliminate? It would seem, the oldest and most expensive. Then, they can force P&K to take a pay cut and keep a large fan base with actors that are young enough to carry on for a few more years yet.
(keep in mind I don't think age should even enter this equation - but you often hear it as an issue about why we don't get more love scenes between the older couples. I myself prefer it to the so called 'love' I see among the 'younger' set they like to show!)
I can see the rationale and how it works on paper enough for them to make the decision. I don't like it. I don't agree with it and I really hate how they went about it.
