Join us in celebrating the 6th Annual Daytime Confidential Hot 100! Throughout 2013, Daytime Confidential has been tracking which daytime professionals 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 we've compiled the entire year into the Daytime Confidential Hot 100.
In 2013, 29 people made their Daytime Confidential Hot 100 debut, or returned to the ranking after having fallen off the list in previous years. General Hospital's Tyler Christopher made the biggest jump in 2013, leaping 53 spots from his 2012 ranking. However, General Hospital also featured the person with the largest drop in ranking. Former GH star Lexi Ainsworth plummeted 49 spots from her 2012 ranking.
Former All My Children star Cameron Mathison was the only person to hold the exact same ranking for two years in a row. After spending two years atop the Daytime Confidential Hot 100, Kirsten Storms dropped to No. 9 in 2013 and was replaced by someone who has never ranked No. 1 on a Hot 100 countdown.
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 solely on user clicks. The name of each current and former soap star who appears on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 is credited to the show on which they last appeared.
No. 100: Chrishell Stause, Days of Our Lives (Return)
And baby makes three for The Bold and the Beautiful’s Linsey Godfrey (Caroline) and her boyfriend, The Young and the Restless star Robert Adamson (Noah). Adamson announced on Facebook, he and Godfrey are expecting a baby. He posted:
Who should Hope Logan (Kim Matula) choose on The Bold and the Beautiful? There's Wyatt (Darin Brooks), the hopelessy-devoted jewelry logistician; then there's Liam (Scott Clifton), the fickle, proposal-happy publishing scion and Daddy's boy. From where I'm blogging, it's a no brainer. Wyatt for the win!
Hope's Aunt Katie (Heather Tom) doesn't see it this way. On today's episode of B&B, the Spencer Publications CEO encourages her niece to marry Liam — like she's always wanted. "Steffy's gone!" Katie insists. Okay, so she wants her niece to marry a guy who can only commit when his other beloved concubine is off sipping espresso in some foreign land?
Dishing out advice like that, it's easy to see why Katie accepts Dollar Bill's (Don Diamont) loads of b.s. time and time again. Do any of these women even know who Gloria Steinem is? Watch a sneak peak of Thursday's B&B after the jump!
Soap viewers are already hip to what the mainstream press is crowing about — daytime dramas are on the upswing! Days of Our Lives recently boasted its biggest audience since Feb. 2011 and is up 12 percent among women 18-49 for the season. READ MORE
