Recently, on The Young and the Restless, Mariah recommitted fully to her relationship with Tessa, despite all the lies and drama they've experienced this past year. Sharon helped participate when Victoria and Nikki kidnapped Tessa, and now Mariah has chosen her girlfriend over her mother, and nothing has been right since then.
CBS Soaps In Depth asked readers if they believe that Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) could survive against all the odds, and viewers answered with a resounding "no." In fact, a mere 14 percent believe that the couple will ultimately overcome the lies. A huge 86 percent think that there is no hope for this pairing, which was not very popular in the first place.
Part of the reason fans never appreciated Mariah and Tessa together is that when they first started seeing each other, Tessa had been dating Mariah's brother, Noah (Robert Adamson). Plus, Mariah had been dating Devon (Bryton James) while Devon and Hilary were on a break. The fact that Mariah cheated with her brother's girlfriend never really sit right or seemed to align with the character since she'd never really shown a desire to date women until that time. Plus, cheating with her brother's girlfriend does not seem like Mariah.
