I WANNA BE A SOAP STAR


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I'd loved SOAP STAR this season for the most part. Who do you guys want to win? Is anyone watching? Glad they let fans vote this season. :) But I Tivo it and didn't get to vote though. :mellow: A woman will win for the 1st time this season. Women are the final 2. I love Ashley and hope she wins. She could be a relative of Celeste and Lexie. Jimena is ok, but I don't think she fits on DAYS. I wish Yves had finished in the top 2, I thought he'd make a good Brady Black re-cast or a long-lost son for Tony & Anna. I liked Travis, and he's joining ATWT soon.

I hate that they got rid of Travis and Justin whom I felt were the best this season. I think they were trying to get the guys out so that they could have a female winner this time. I dont care for either of the final 2 but if I had to pick it would be Ashlee

How do you know Travis is joining ATWT?

I agree with you. I dont care for the 2 finalists. I watched off and on.

Travis was great, but DOOL does need more women in the 25-35 age range so with Travis not winning I think Ashlee or Jimena winning is the next best thing.

At this point I like Jimena better, although that may be just because I'm afraid if Ashlee wins they'll pair her with Jett and I want him GONE GONE GONE!

But I adore Tanya Boyd/Celeste so if they brought on Ashlee as a half-sister of Lexie and daughter of Celeste and give them both stories this way I would FLOVE that. You are right that Jimena could have a hard time fitting on "Days" but if it forces the show to write someone who is not a Brady, Horton, Carver or a DiMera that could be a very good thing. I could deal with them making her Chloe's friend who comes with her back to Salem and is her roommate, EJ's ex-girlfriend back in town to cause trouble and/or a model who goes to work at Countess Wilhelmina or Basic Black (if those companies still exist). Or they could restart Tony and Anna DiMera designs and she could be a model there. That could be all kinds of awesome if they made an excuse to solidify Tony and Anna's places on the canvas more (I know it's futile, but I refuse to give up my pipe dream that the show will actually wise up and give Leann Hunley a story).

Really though I hope whichever wins they at least explore whether BD can spark with the girl because the EJamucas crap needs to end yesterday.

My biggest fear though is that whichever girl wins that Hogan will go back to his misogynist well and make the character an ex-hooker or porn star since I don't think he's introduced a single new female character during his term who didn't have a hooker past or present.

I am very happy it's two girls and both have talent, even though I liked Travis. I can see Ashley as a Virginia from Sunset type character. She has a villainess quality about her IMO. However, Jimena has brought it every week. She is serious about the craft and puts her all into every scene. She has a diva attitude at times but if she puts 100% forward all the time then she is someone I want around. Plus, she has that exotic quality and that would be unique on Days. She could fit nicely into the upper 20's crowd.

Yves was horrible but, while I know I am in the minority, I saw no problem with what Hogan or MBE said. Yes, it's why soaps are the way they are but this has been the case in daytime long before this. How many actors got by on their looks in soaps over the years? Camerone Mathison, Drake Hogestyn, Austin Peck, Ronn Moss, etc. It's been happening long before. These guys have some talent, like Yves, but it's mostly a look issue. Sadly, what Hogan said was right for about more then half the audience. All of us on boards like this may want talent but there are those fangirls that want their beefcake and don't give a damn about talent whatsoever and that has been the case for at least ten years.

It's the wrong thinking but Hogan and MBE were alluding to something that has been a daytime fact for years. Looks mean alot. Yes, too much emphasis is put on them now but there has always been a strong emphasis . I think it's just some are so frustrated with Hogan that if he looks the wrong way people are going to get on his case. I see why the comments are upsetting but it's been like this for years and it isn't going to change.

I didn't get the chance to vote but if I had I would have voted for Ashlee.... maybe it was just me but I wasn't all that moved by Jimena's acting.... she always seemed flat to me.... but the judges appeared to love her... don't watch DAYS so I don't know how either would fit but I'm pulling for Ashlee...

I will say the final episode.... Yves did so much better in his scene than Jimena... to me it seemed like she was just going through the motions and wasn't putting anything into it.... Yves.... I could see his scene working on a soap.... a romantic lead... he certainly had the looks....

Overall it was a good season and I can't wait until Tuesday to see who wins...

It was in SOD. Glad for you, Ron, and other ATWT fans for getting the best man on SOAP STAR this year. He was my fave and I wish he hadn't screwed up the week he got voted off.

It seems like the entire cast is there. I think I see Judi Evans. Brandon Beemer is there w/ Nadia. Cameron Mathison's mom and dad are there too. His mom is kinda hot, lol.

I hope Ashlee wins. I don't see what's so great about Jimena. IMO, I think she kinda gets lucky each time. I think Ashlee is a better actress.

It's so good to see the cast there. I like this whole live thing. The judges stuff is great but there is way too many recaps. It's almost like American Idol :lol: .

I like both woman but tend to sway toward Jimena. She's exotic and there is just something about her. She's more raw and she seems so serious about the craft. I am ok with either though.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ASHLEE WON!!!!!!!! THAT'S MY GIRL! I LOVE HER!

There's something about her that just draws me in. I think she'll be a welcome addition to DAYS. Perhaps a sister of Celeste? Maybe a daughter of Andre? Who knows :D

She better not be some sorority chick....<_<
