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.

No. 20: Ingo Rademacher, General Hospital (Debut or Return)

One thing we’ve learned from publishing the Daytime Confidential Top 20 and Hot 100 over the years, is that an actor’s departure or extended absence can often generate more interest in that star than when appearing onscreen. Ingo Rademacher’sGeneral Hospital departure and the subsequent Twitter revelation that he is returning to Port Charles helped propel him to No. 20 on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100.

No. 19: Sharon Case, The Young and the Restless (Down 10)

The Young and the Restless’ Sharon Case fell from No. 9 on 2010’s Daytime Confidential Hot 100 to No. 19 in 2011. Her character, Sharon Newman, remained front and center in 2011.  


bergman111672

No. 18: Alicia Minshew, All My Children (Down 14)

All My Children’sAlicia Minshew has always been popular with Daytime Confidential readers. In 2010, she earned a spot among the top 5 on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100, but with AMC ending in 2011 she fell to No. 18. 

bergman117489

No. 17: Kimberly McCullough (Up 19)

General Hospital’sKimberly McCullough jumped from No. 36 on Daytime Confidential’s 2010 Hot 100 to No. 17 in 2011. Her character, Robin Scorpio, was involved in a controversial storyline and the announcement McCullough is leaving GH was also a hot topic. 


bergman108913

No. 16: Crystal Chappell, Days of Our Lives (Down 9)


Former Days of Our Lives star Crystal Chappell fell from No. 7 on Daytime Confidential’s Hot 100 of 2010 to No. 16 in 2011. The third season of her hit webseries Venice premiered this fall. 

bergman119966

No. 15: Roger Howarth, One Life to Live (Debut or Return)

Roger Howarth returned to One Life to Live as Todd Manning in 2011. The tale of two Todds was one the year’s best storylines. Howarth makes his Daytime Confidential Hot 100 debut at No. 15.


BBC-003430

No. 14: Shemar Moore, The Young and the Restless (Up 67)

No. 13: Christel Khalil, The Young and the Restless (Down 10)


Daytime Confidential readers have always been interested in The Young and the Restless'Christel Khalil. She appeared in the Daytime Confidential Top 20 each month of 2011. This year, she falls to No. 13 on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 ranking.


berg110809_25_

No. 12: Thorsten Kaye, All My Children (Down 9)

All My Children star Thorsten Kaye is the highest ranked male ABC soap actor on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 of 2011. Zendall fans rejoiced when Zach returned to Pine Valley and was reunited with Kendall (Alicia Minshew) before the long-running soap ended its run.

bergman78114

No. 11: Maura West, The Young and the Restless (Up 4)

Soap fans loved Maura West as Carly Snyder on As the World Turns. Unfortunately, her time as Diane Jenkins on The Young and the Restless was less than well received.  The “Who Killed Diane?” murder mystery was also a flop. West edged up four spots from 2010’s Daytime Confidential Hot 100 to No. 11 in 2011. 


ALO-097216

No. 10: Billy Miller, The Young and the Restless (Up 6)

Billy Miller’s Billy Abbott fought for the woman he loved  in 2011 on The Young and the Restless, but his father-in-law Victor (Eric Braeden) didn’t make it easy.  Miller jumped from No. 16 in 2010 to No. 10 on 2011’s Daytime Confidential Hot 100 ranking.

bergman104651

No. 8: Kelly Monaco, General Hospital (Up 18)

General Hospital’sKelly Monaco was one of several soap stars whose run on E!’s Dirty Soap appears to have helped generate more interest in them. Monaco, Farah Fath, Kirsten Storms, John-Paul Lavoisier and Nadia Bjorlin each moved higher on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 in 2011. Brandon Beemer returned to the countdown after falling off the ranking in 2010.

SDW-001429

No. 7: Marcy Rylan, The Young and the Restless (Up 18)

The Young and the Restless’Marcy Rylan continues to generate interest among Daytime Confidential readers. Like Kelly Monaco, she jumped 18 spots in 2011 from her 2010 Daytime Confidential Hot 100 ranking. 


SGG-064832

No. 6: Natalia Livingston, Days of Our Lives (Debut or Return)

Former General Hospital star Natalia Livingston generated a lot of interest when it was announced she’d been cast as Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) sister Taylor on Days of Our Lives.  Her time in the role helped Livingston make an impressive return to the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 at No. 6. She last appeared at No. 35 on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 of 2009. However, two other soap stars had even more impressive returns or debuts in 2011. 

bergman100378

No. 5: Jeanne Cooper, The Young and the Restless (Debut or Return)

Jeanne Cooper’s absence, as Genoa City’s Grande Dame Katherine Chancellor, spurred large interest in the actress. It propelled The Young and the Restless favorite to a No. 5 Daytime Confidential Hot 100 debut. 


bergman113516

No. 4: Farah Fath, One Life to Live (Up 35)

One Life to Live’sFarah Fath had a good year. She spent a significant portion of it on the front burner in Llanview and gained more exposure on E!’s Dirty Soap. She rocketed up the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 ranking 35 spots to No. 4 from No. 39 in 2010.

bergman95425

No. 3: Melody Thomas Scott, The Young and the Restless (Up 17)

Genoa City just wasn’t the same without Melody Thomas Scott’s Nikki Newman waltzing around town in fur and diamonds much of the year. Thankfully, 2011 ended with Scott where she needed to be, on our TV screens. 

bergman52306

No. 2: Rebecca Herbst, General Hospital (Up 20)

General Hospital’sRebecca Herbst held the No. 1 spot on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 for four months in 2011. However, it wasn’t enough to help her claim the No. 1 spot on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100. She is 2011's runner-up.


bergman111285

No. 1: Kirsten Storms, General Hospital (Debut or Return)

Months away from General Hospital and her participation in E!’s Dirty Soap helped generate substantial interest in Kirsten Storms.  She spent September and October at No. 1 on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. Storms is also the second General Hospital star to earn the No. 1 spot on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100. GH’s Steve Burton was the first star to earn the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 No. 1 ranking, in 2008.
