‘Bold and the Beautiful’: Jacqui Giggles over Steffy-Finn First Kiss With Mannequin & Wife

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers promise the first kiss soon with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and FinnDr. John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan). However, judging from a recording from behind the scenes, it’s less romantic and more hilarious for actress Jacqui Wood. See what they revealed in a recent podcast.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Steffy Forrester Heats Up With Dr. John Finnegan Soon

B&B spoilers promise it won’t be too long before Steffy Forrester makes some magic with her new man – the hot doctor Finn. However, it seems like they need to break that doctor-patient bond first, so Dr. John Finnegan doesn’t cross any ethical lines with Steffy.

This week, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers have Finn dropping by for another house call. Pressed by Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), Steffy Forrester talks to Dr. Finnegan about her pain and asks for more meds. Of course, the hot doc knows the dangers of opioids.

However, Finn doesn’t want Steffy in pain on Bold and the Beautiful. Spoilers say he’s torn. Whether or not he gives Steffy the pills, one thing is clear – he’s interested in her as more than a patient. So, that means Finn needs to cut ties with her professional to see her personally.

B&B Spoilers: First Finn Kiss Soon – Jacqueline Giggled Shooting It

We’ve heard already that the CBS soap’s using a combination of mannequins and stand-in spouses and partners to keep the romance alive on Bold and the Beautiful. It was noticeable recently that Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) almost laughed while smooching a mannequin.

Now, Jacqui struggled the same way in a Bold and the Beautiful scene recorded by the BBC for a podcast. They brought in a mannequin to stand in for Finn, and we overheard the rehearsal. Jacqui, as Steffy Forrester, paced across to the doll and then got stage directions.

The Bold and the Beautiful director told her to “move your head as if you’re kissing,” and she giggled as the mannequin wiggled back and forth. That’s the same problem Steffy’s dad had shooting his doll-kissing scene. It’s just not natural, and it must be hard to keep a straight face.

Tanner Kissed His Wife – as Steffy – on Bold and the Beautiful

For the other half of the Finn-Steffy Forrester kiss, B&B brought in Tanner’s wife, Kayla Ewell. We overheard some production chatter for that side of the smooch too. Bold and the Beautiful directors promised, “you’ll see some very good kissing.”

They also said when it comes to kissing scenes with Steffy, Finn, and others, that figuring out who’s kissing whom may be “part of the fun” of watching Bold and the Beautiful. The good news is that Steffy Forrester’s romance heats up soon with Dr. Finnegan on the CBS sudser.

The strange thing is, it’ll be someone else playing Steffy for kissing and love scenes. We’d also expect Bold and the Beautiful to do a slow burn rather than Steffy Forrester hitting the sheets soon with Dr. John Finnegan.

Hopefully, COVID shooting restrictions will ease, and they’ll return to normalcy. For now, watch for actors struggling not to laugh as they make out with dolls…
