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'sTyler 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.
