THE BATTLE FOR JABOT, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
A year ago, the Abbotts were reveling in the fact that Jabot was safely back in the family. The celebration proved premature, though, because Victor still held a promissory note, payable on demand. When Jabot launched a cosmetics teen line to directly compete with Brash & Sassy, Victor called in the hefty balloon payment, prompting Jack to ask for money from everybody in town, with the possible exception of Miguel. Unaware that Victor was pulling the strings, a disbelieving Jack exhausted all avenues until it looked like The Mustache would once again get his hands on the company that the Abbotts had built. At the 11th hour, Nikki stepped in with a sizable check, which, combined with Brad's millions, saved Jabot from Victor's clutches. Curses, foiled again.
THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS knows exactly how to personalize the corporate intrigue. Now, Victor's ex-wife, Nikki, and his mortal enemy, Brad, have a voice at Jabot, making them forces to be reckoned with. And Victor's unexpected romance with Ashley was nipped square in the portfolio when she learned that her ex was once again going after her brother. Jabot may have staved off Victor's latest attack, but you know that he'll be trying to take over that company until Genoa City freezes over. Even the great Victor Newman may have trouble going up against Jack, Ashley, Nikki and Brad - unless, of course, one of them gets enterprising and switches sides.
