Daytime Confidential Hot 100 of 2011
No. 100: Maria Arena Bell, The Young and the Restless (Debut or Return)
Welcome to the fourth annual Daytime Confidential Hot 100. Throughout 2011, Daytime Confidential has been tracking which stars or daytime executives our readers have been most interested in, whether positive or negative. Each month we published the Daytime Confidential Top 20, based on your clicks of those individuals. Now, at the end of the year, we’ve compiled the entire year into the Daytime Confidential Hot 100.
In 2011, forty-one individuals made their Daytime Confidential Hot 100 debut or returned to the ranking after falling off the list in 2010. Former The Young and the Restless star Shemar Moore made the biggest jump from 2010, climbing 67 spots. Of the daytime stars that appeared on a soap in 2011, One Life to Live’s Robin Strasser had the largest improvement, rocketing from No. 91 in 2010 to No. 31 in 2011. Former All My Children star David Canary experienced the largest drop, falling 77 spots. One Life to Live’s Gina Tognoni is the only person who maintained the exact same ranking she held in 2010. Daytime Confidential's 2010 Hot 100 No. 1 star, Kim Zimmer, slid to No. 21.
Unlike Daytime Confidential’s year end Best and Worst lists, the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 is not chosen or ranked by Daytime Confidential’s editors. It is based only on user’s compiled clicks of individual’s names. The name of each current and former soap star that appears on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 is credited to the show on which they last appeared.
