The Bold and the Beautiful pop Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) loves to compare himself to sons Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Depending on the day of his week, his mode, and how far his offspring pushes him, those comparison may be favorable or they may fall short in his eyes. But which of them Liam or Wyatt, is most like Dollar Bill on the CBS sudser?
Each seems to have some of his best and worst traits of the publishing tycoon. At times, it seems like one is more like him and at others, they flip flop. At the end of the day, both Wyatt and Liam resemble their dad – especially in their worst moments – but sometimes in their best moments as well. Take a look at their differences and similarities and then vote in the poll below.
Bold and the Beautiful: Wyatt Spencer Is a Chip Off the Old Bill Spencer Block
When it comes to big business on B&B, Wyatt is definitely his father’s son. He’s got that killer instinct and can be ruthless when he needs to be. Wyatt Spencer’s known for turning a blind eye to Dollar Bill’s sketchy practices as well. So, in the arena of his professional life, Wyatt Spencer is a whole lot like his dad. They are both willing to go all out to make a buck and want to make sure it stays in their wallets.
On the flip side, Liam Spencer, as their dad likes to remind him, is a tofu eating, tree hugging softie. Liam wouldn’t know what a killer instinct was even if he tripped over it. The trees he hugs are more aggressive than Liam himself. Sure, he’s operating in the business world but unlike his father, Liam is very touchy-feely and wants to give big bucks to charity. He’d give away all the profits if he had a chance.
To be fair, though, the son of Bill Spencer’s that may be most like him in business is Will Spencer (Finnegan George). The kid cut his teeth on a stock ticker. Plus, Dollar Bill read him The Wall Street Journal as a bedtime story. Will may be doing hostile takeovers of others kids desks at school. His namesake is living up to his dad, especially since they did the SORAS recast with an older child actor on Bold and the Beautiful.

Human Ping Pong Ball Liam Spencer Likes to Waffle With Women Like Good Old Dad
When it comes to his love life on Bold and the Beautiful, Bill Spencer certainly has an eye for the ladies – and so do his sons. In this arena, though, it seems like Liam Spencer is more like his dad than Wyatt. Viewers watched Bill bounce back and forth between Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and her sister Katie Logan (Heather Tom). Liam Spencer has done the same with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Hope Logan (Liam Spencer).
Up until recently, Wyatt Spencer just seemed to be chasing his brother’s women. He was never the waffler that Liam Spencer is on B&B. Wyatt just wants to find love. But now, he is definitely channeling his dad’s worst traits with this situation with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) and Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden). He was telling Sally that he loved her and then a few days later, he was pulling off Flo’s bikini and boinking her. Granted they have a past, but Wyatt Spencer didn’t even take a breath before leaping from one to the other on Bold and the Beautiful.
Bold and the Beautiful – Bill’s Three Sons All Got His Genes
You can see Bill Spencer’s influence in the choices his sons make on B&B. Remember, Liam and Wyatt didn’t grow up around Bill and only got to know him as adults. So, at least some of this has to be genetic, right? But for little Will, he’s got the genes and the day to day influence growing up. So we can expect him to turn into Bill Spencer Junior in every way in a few years.
For now, we’ll see more of both of Bill’s older sons doing some ping ponging between the women in their lives. And neither seems to have their minds on business much these days. We’ll also wait to see if Dollar Bill cleans up his act and sticks to one woman as he remarries on Bold and the Beautiful.
But for now, the question for you to consider is – which son do you think is most like Bill Spencer? Vote in the poll above. And stay tuned to the CBS soap for lots more action with Bill, Liam, Wyatt, and Will.
