Some soap operas dish up a buffet of shirtless soap hunks on nearly a daily basis, like General Hospital. Other soaps provide fans with a smattering of shirtless beefcake throughout the year, like The Young and the Restless. Here are Daytime Confidential's Top 25 Shirtless Soap Hunks of 2013. Share your favorites in the comments!
From Magic Milo (Drew Cheetwood) and his pals stripping down for charity on General Hospital, to Salem’s hottest getting their pants stuffed with dollars on Days of Our Lives, shirtless hunks were everywhere on soaps in April.
Vargas (Sean Douglas) sizzled with Nicole (Arianne Zucker) on DAYS, while Rick (Jacob Young) and Co. worked out at Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Eric (Greg Vaughan) walked in on Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Vargas (Sean Douglas) about to have sex on her desk. Eric ripped into Nicole, telling her she knew better than to hook up with Vargas in his office. Nicole shot back at Eric. She told him he’d better be careful, or she’d slap the collar off him. He was furious, but didn’t stop Nicole from leaving when she quit. Everything about those scenes was fantastic.
After leaving the rectory, Nicole called Vargas and invited him over to her house. The two ended up in bed, but the episode concluded with her saying “I want you so much Eric.” Ouch. Vargas’ ego definitely suffered a blow from Nicole's comment. READ MORE
Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Vargas (Sean Douglas) did a bit more flirting in the church office while eating some lip smacking fried chicken. For dessert, they had a cream filled doughnut, which Vargas topped with whip cream that he intentionally got on Nicole’s fingers so he could lick them off. The pair started making out on Nicole’s desk and all I have to say about Nicole and Vargas is, Eric (Greg Vaughan) who?
There may be no greater task in soapdom than existing as the remaining half of a mega popular supercouple. As a rule, fans have a hard time seeing characters that represent 50 percent of a beloved squish name moving on. What generally happens when one half of a famed pairing leaves the show, is their former screen partner is either left dwindling in the fictional winds, or paired off with someone else with little forethought (Remember Days of Our Lives' Kayla and Shane?)
As the ultimate fan of DAYS' Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso)—this used to be my cellphone ringtone—I've held out hope that TPTB would come to terms with Reckell, so that Beauregard could finally come downstairs from tucking Ciara in bed, or wherever he is, and reunite with his Fancy Face. Since that doesn't appear to be happening any time soon, I have come to the bittersweet realization that it's time for my fav-o-rite Salem, U.S.A. heroine to move on with her soap operatic life.
