‘Young and the Restless’: Can Victoria Keep CEO Chair – Or Will Nick or Adam Take It?

Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) can’t keep running Newman Enterprises due to the seriousness of his illness. Recently, he appointed a temporary CEO to take his place while he’s in treatment. But soon, The Mustache will look for a permanent replacement when he’s ready to step away from the throne. When that day comes, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) are all in the running for that prestigious spot.

Poor Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) isn’t even in the running. Heck, they might not even tell her about it. So, Y&R spoilers question who he’ll appoint his successor. Fans are wondering which Newman sibling is better suited to take over the huge conglomerate? Let’s look at the options and who might land in the ruling chair at the Newman corporation on the CBS sudser.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Adam Newman Was First Choice – Change of Heart Ahead?

Y&R spoilers promised Adam Newman was Victor Newman’s first choice as his heir. He offered the job to Adam and said he’d make him the boss at Newman Enterprises. Of course, the prodigal son turned him down flat. That was when Adam was planning to run back out of Genoa City, though. With him rethinking things and wanting access to his kids, that means he’s staying in GC. But would he go back to Victor Newman and agree to the job?

Things are tense now with Adam and Victor. So much so that his dad kicked him off the ranch since Adam Newman won’t drop the Christian Newman (McGuigan twins) custody suit. Everyone in the family is aligned against Adam right now, including his dad. But, if he wins the custody case against Christian – or drops it – everything could change. Since Adam Newman was the one Victor went to first, it sure seems like that’s the kid he wants running the company, hint Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Nick Newman Finally Tough Enough to Satisfy Victor Newman?

Let’s next consider Nick Newman on Young and the Restless. While Nick is no stranger to business, it was a lot of smaller stuff in recent years. He had his hand in Crimson Lights but now he’s out of that. Then he ran the Underground Night Club until it burned to the ground. But he lacked a killer instinct like Victor. He wasn’t as ruthless as his father. Nick never wanted to screw over people in business or act shady and cut corners. But things changed drastically with Nick after losing Sage and then Chelsea.

He started Dark Horse as a competitor to Newman and seemed to finally learn how to play hardball. So, Nick Newman has a good head for business and he finally grew the nerve to stand up and do what needs to be done. It finally made sense for Victor Newman to offer Nick the job. But like Adam, Nick doesn’t see himself sitting in the big chair. Where he wants to be is Dark Horse, but Adam Newman bought it out from under him and puts Phyllis Abbott (Michelle Stafford) in the CEO chair there, indicate Young and the Restless spoilers.

Young and the Restless: Victoria Newman is Victor’s Consolation Prize?

The one kid of Victor Newman’s that most wants the boss chair at the family business is Victoria Newman. Yet, Y&R spoilers remind she’s acting CEO by default only. It was after Victor was refused by others that he turned to his oldest daughter. She knows it to be true when Adam threw it in her face. Yet, Victoria spent years working loyally under her father and trying to earn his respect. She worked twice as hard to prove that she is as qualified as her brothers to run Newman Enterprises. But Victor always seems to pass her by.

Young and the Restless shows Victoria is shrewder than her brother Nick. She took Brash N’ Sassy, which was nothing more than a Newman subsidiary, and made it a household name until Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard) ruined her company. Victoria’s willing to go that extra mile and do what’s necessary. She’ll even get her hands dirty so of all the kids, she’s the most like The Mustache when it comes to business (except perhaps Adam). But don’t forget, there’s one more sister.

There’s Abby who’s making a go of it with Society. While she probably doesn’t want to run Newman either, being left out of the conversation is insulting. But that’s pretty much how things always go for her. So, who should wind up holding the reins at Newman – Adam Newman, Victoria Newman, Nick Newman, or Abby Newman?
