After five weeks of eliminations and heartbreak, "The Price is Right" narrowed its next male model search down to three - Jonathan Morgan, Jay Byars and James O’Halloran - when the finalists appeared on the Monday, December 1 edition of CBS' "The Talk." After the reveal, America began voting for who they felt best fit the brand of the game show when the polls opened via priceisright.com/nextpricemodel. Polls closed on Friday, December 5. Today, December 8, the game show revealed who would finally take home the prize of becoming the next male model on "The Price is Right," which entails a week-long modeling gig beginning Monday, December 15. So who did America choose?
It’s raining men at “The Price Is Right,” which has been in the thick of a national male model search of manly proportions for the past couple of weeks. And seeing as how the game show not only helped launch the career of “Days of our Lives’” Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers; ex-Pete Cortlandt, “All My Children”) but also decided to include “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) and Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) in this year’s search (which Soap Opera Network was the first to reveal), we decided to have executive producer Mike Richards come on down and give us the full scoop!
Soap Opera Network has been bringing you all of the twists and turns regarding “The Price Is Right’s” male model search — including the exclusive story that “The Young and the Restless’ Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) and Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) are taking part in the national search. And there’s yet another super soapy story regarding the search: One of the male model hopefuls is headed to “The Bold and the Beautiful!”
“The Young and the Restless’” Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) and Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) already have quite the dream gig, both being stars of daytime’s most-watched drama series. But the pair was recently given an opportunity of Showcase Showdown proportions: They were asked to participate in “The Price Is Right’s” recent national male model search, for which they not only filmed soap opera scenes with the contestants, but also helped narrow down the final five hotties to the final three that America will have the chance to vote on!
As previously reported, "The Young and the Restless'" Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) are heading down the aisle one more time, but before the happy occasion can take place, they along with several of their closest friends and family members are heading to lockup! Set to air on Tuesday, September 30, CBS has released a first look clip of the pre-celebration of the joining of the high school sweethearts, who are determined to put the past behind them and face the future together once more.

After nearly a year in a coma, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will once again say hello to Phyllis Summers when daytime veteran Gina Tognoni takes over the role beginning Monday, August 11, Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively. In our tribute to the character as she gets ready to wake up for the first time in the coming weeks, we take a look back at what Phyllis has missed while she was sleeping, including what former loves Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) have been up to since last seeing their favorite feisty redhead.
Since Melissa Ordway joined “The Young and the Restless” as Abby Newman just over a year ago, she hasn’t had much exciting story to sink her teeth into — until now!

As previously reported, former "All My Children" star Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) is joining the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" as a recast Ben Rogers. The actor replaces Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman). Gaston was let go after his 13-week contract cycle was not picked up.
Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former "All My Children" actor, and "The Price is Right" male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to "The Young and the Restless'" Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).
Best known for his singing stints in "Nashville Star" and "If I Can Dream," country music singer and actor Justin Gaston has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of Ben, who a casting call from last summer described as "early-to-mid 20s... midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary." The actor began filming scenes in mid-October and will first air later this month.
