    Vote for your choice and explain why you thought he was the worst. And of course, this poll does not include JR. I voted for Clint Ogden. He was boring as hell and had no chemistry with Sue Ellen. I thought it was ridiculous how he claimed that it was hard for him to rent more expensive hotel rooms. I know that they were just trying to show the difference in wealth between him and JR, but they did it the wrong way. For heaven's sake, Clint owned his own company! Just because it wasn't as big as Ewing Oil didn't mean that he should not be able to afford anything more than those cracker box sized hotel rooms that he shacked up with Sue Ellen in! He also cheated on his wife.

    Contrary to popular belief, Sue Ellen did NOT lose her virginity to Clint - reason being - they couldn't afford the hotel room.

    I voted for Don. Dear God help us all. And he was smaller than her.

    You are exactly right. J.R. addressed Sue Ellen's lack of "experience" early on when he made the comment that his wife had not "known" any man before he married her. I believe it something to that effect.

    My least favorite boyfriend for her though was Peter Richards.:no:

    I voted for Peter. It was weird and it made Sue Ellen look like a desperate, cradle robbing cougar. He looked too boyish like a teenager than a young man in his twenties. Yuck!!!!

    JR probably only wanted to marry virgins. Or women that only he had slept with before the wedding, like Cally. He probably just rudely assumed that any woman who wasn't a virgin was a slut. And yet it was perfectly okay for HIM to sleep with all of the women in the world! What a hypocrite!

    You see, I believe that Peter was actually doing a psychology experiment: "Can a younger man and an older woman be happy together?" His research was not approved of by an Institutional Review Board. And he did not get informed consent from Sue Ellen!

    I blame this on the book "Dallas" by Laura van Wormer. The book states that Sue Ellen lost her virginity to Clint even though it was not consistent with what we had seen on the show.

    Oh and as much as I disliked Clint my vote went to Peter Richards. He was so annoying running after Sue Ellen even though she was not interested in him. He even threatened to drop out of college if Sue Ellen didn't spend time with him. He was just so childish.

    Despite this I must admit that as a teenage girl I found Peter Richards very good looking.

    Agreed about Laura van Wormer. That is utter bollocks. I liked the Peter storyline because of how jealous JR was, and admittedly when I watched it originally, he was older than me (like a proper grown up to my 10 year old!) so I didn't see it as a problem lol

    Yeah he had absolutely no charisma at all. Mind you his storyline wasn't all that great either.

    Peter Richards wasn't suitable either he was still a kid. But Clint was just yawn inducing for me. :)

    If I were Sue Ellen, I would have just been like: "Okay, go ahead and drop out of college. I don't care." Sue Ellen went too easy on Peter.

    It was a toss up for me between Clint Ogden and Peter Richards. Clint was pathetically boring, not even very good looking, and didn't seem the type Sue Ellen would have gone for. But Peter Richards took the cake. Not only was Christopher Atkins a horrible actor, but I just couldn't believe Sue Ellen ever would have gone for a guy almost young enough to be her son, no matter how unhappy she was in her marriage. Peter was an immature, insecure child, and Atkins went way over the top with the part. His obsession with her was ridiculous too. I considered him to be one of the show's bad memories.

    I voted for Dusty. Since I haven't watched the entirety of the original series yet, I couldn't comment on all of her extramarital affairs. There was just something about Dusty that I liked, and I recall being upset when he "died" at the end of Season 3. Wasn't it Season 3? Cannot remember precisely...

    Sue Ellen's fling with Peter had potential, too. It just wasn't ever used properly, that was the problem I had with it. I actually liked Christopher Akins' "look", but I just felt he was a tad too young to make his romance with Sue Ellen believable enough for my tastes. He did like that he was obsessive, but I would have enjoyed it more had Sue Ellen been more willing to be with him from the get-go. I wasn't too crazy about all that "I don't know" scenario. And, I didn't like Peter's subplot with Lucy, either.

    Cliff is my least favorite. That wasn't the worst storyline of Sue Ellen cheating on JR - that was the storyline with Peter, which was disgusting. I hate Cliff though, so he's the worst boyfriend she had. I don't know how she ever thought JR would leave her and Cliff alone as long as she was with Cliff.

    Clint Ogden, those scenes when they go to hotel rooms are almost unbearable to watch.
