Daytime Confidential Hot 100 of 2012


 

Join us in celebrating the 5th Annual Daytime Confidential Hot 100. Throughout 2012, 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 2012, 38 made their Daytime Confidential Hot 100 debut or returned to the ranking after falling off the list in 2011. The Bold and the Beautiful’s Susan Flannery made the biggest jump in 2012, zooming up 76 spots. However, without All My Children on the air Thorsten Kaye experienced the biggest drop, plummeting 80 spots. Only two out of the 100 people on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 maintained the exact same ranking in 2012 that they held in 2011.

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 that appears on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100 is credited to the show on which they last appeared. READ MORE

No. 20: Crystal Chappell, The Bold and the Beautiful

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Crystal Chappell plummeted from No. 7 in July to No. 20 on August’s Daytime Confidential Top 20. Could it be that Joanna Johnson's (Karen) lack of availability, due to work as a primetime TV producer, has caused interest in Dani and Karen's love story to wane? B&B showrunner Brad Bell recently promised more story is coming for his soap's premiere lesbian couple. We'll see how that effects Chappell's ranking.
