No. 19: Sharon Case - The Young and the Restless

No. 18: Jake Silbermann - As the World Turns
Jake Silbermannis holding steady this month on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. It will be interesting to see if the arrival of Forbes March and interest in their storyline him move higher up on next month's list. Silbermann's other screen partner, Van Hansis, fell off the DC Top 20 to No 22.
No. 17: Kelly Monaco - General Hospital

No. 14: Rebecca Herbst - General Hospital
No. 13: Farah Fath - One Life to Live

No. 12: Steve Burton - General Hospital
Steve Burton loses one more spot on this month's Daytime Confidential Top 20. In May he appeared at No. 11. This month he slides to No. 12. Could there be a connection between the bottom falling out of General Hospital's ratings and the lack of Liason on the show?
No. 11: Arianne Zucker - Days of Our Lives
Arianne Zucker makes her Daytime Confidential Top 20 debut at No. 11. Zucker joins Deidre Hall and Alison Sweeney as just the third Days of Our Lives star to earn a spot on the DC Top 20.
No. 10: Alicia Minshew - All My Children
Alicia Minshew jumps up the Daytime Confidential Top 20 list from No. 20 in May to No. 10 in June. Could interest in whether or not Kendall is responsible for Stuart's murder on All My Children have made fans more interested in Minshew?
No. 9: Daniel Goddard - The Young and the Restless
Daniel Goddard isn't going anywhere, at least this month. For the second month in a row Goddard appears at No. 9 on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. Will the revelation that Goddard's character Cane is a fake result in Goddard dropping lower next month? Stay tuned.
No. 8: Scott Evans - One Life to Live
One Life to Live star Scott Evans makes his Daytime Confidential Top 20 debut at No. 8. This is the highest any OLTL star has appeared on the DC Top 20 since Farah Fath appeared at No. 10 in July of 2008. Could OLTL have found its "Nuke" in the Fish and Kyle pairing?
No. 7: John Driscoll - The Young and the Restless

No. 5: Christel Khalil - The Young and the Restless
Consistency seems to be code word for this month's Daytime Confidential Top 20. Like Daniel Goddard, John Driscoll, Nathan Parsons and Jake SilbermannChristel Khalil occupies the same spot for a second month in a row. The highest Khalil has appeared on the DC Top 20 was No. 2 in April of this year.
No. 4: Jessica Leccia - Guiding Light
Things get more interesting among the top four stars on this month's Daytime Confidential Top 20. Guiding Light's Jessica Leccia drops one spot from No. 3 in May to No. 4 in June helping to make room for two new actors to sneak into the top 3.
No. 3: Melody Thomas Scott - The Young and the Restless
Interest in Melody Thomas Scott's contract status skyrocketed her from No. 12 in May to No. 3 in June. It will be interesting to see if she has what it takes to make it to No. 1 on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 in July. If she is able to do so it will be the first time since February that a The Young and the Restless star has occupied the top spot on our list.
No. 2: Chris Engen - The Young and the Restless
The controversy surrounding Chris Engen's departure from The Young and the Restless and interest in the Adam gas lighting Ashley and seducing Rafe storylines helped Engen move up two spots from No. 4 in May to No. 2 in June. Now that his time on Y&R is a fading memory will he be able to maintain his perch so high on the Daytime Confidential Top 20? Only time will tell.
No. 1: Crystal Chappell - Guiding Light
After being dethroned by All My Children'sDavid Canary in May Crystal Chappell returns to the No. 1 spot on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 in June.
