On the <strong>Thursday, March 12</strong> episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," fans of the daytime drama series will be introduced to "The Price is Right" male model search winner <strong>James O'Halloran</strong>, who will guest star as a waiter in scenes with actors <strong>Tracey E. Bregman</strong> (Lauren Fenmore) and <strong>Christian Le Blanc</strong> (Michael Baldwin). In an interview with <em>Soap Opera Network</em>, O'Halloran reveals that his appearance on "Y&R" marks the first time he has ever been on the set of an American soap opera, his thoughts on winning the "The Price is Right" male model gig and what's next for the 6'1 Australian native.

On <strong>Thursday, December 25</strong> and <strong>Thursday, January 1</strong>, CBS is handing fans of "The Young and the Restless" a wonderful Christmas and New Year's present in the form of original episodes of the daytime drama series, the network recently announced.

As <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/next-male-model-price-right">previously reported</a>, <strong>James O'Halloran</strong> won "The Price is Right's" next male model competition when host <strong>Drew Carey</strong> announced his name during Part 1 of the daytime game show. O'Halloran, 30, came on down the famous aisles of the <strong>Bob Barker</strong> studio before conversing with Carey, who noted that not only is the model young and good looking, "He's got to have that Australian accent too?"

After five weeks of eliminations and heartbreak, "The Price is Right" narrowed its next male model search down to three - <strong>Jonathan Morgan</strong>,<strong> Jay Byars</strong> and <strong>James O’Halloran</strong> - when the finalists <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/talk-reveals-final-3-price-right-male-model-search">appeared</a> 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 <a href="http://www.priceisright.com/nextpricemodel/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">priceisright.com/nextpricemodel</a>. Polls closed on Friday, December 5. <strong>Today, December 8</strong>, 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 <strong>Monday, December 15</strong>. So who did America choose?

You met the three finalists for the next male model search currently underway at CBS' "The Price is Right," via their <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/talk-reveals-final-3-price-right-male-model-search">appearance</a> on the Monday, December 1 edition of CBS' "The Talk," but what does the game show's first male model, <strong>Robert Scott Wilson</strong> (Ben Ridgeway, "Days of our Lives"; ex-Pete Cortlandt, "All My Children") have to say about another person taking on his former daytime role? The actor recently spoke with <em>Soap Opera Network </em>about his experience on the game show, what it was like helping judge the competition, and responds to <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/11/exclusive-guy-right-price-right-ep-mike-richards-reveals-secrets-behind-game-shows-male-model-search-soap-opera-crossover">comments</a> made about him by "Price is Right" executive producer, <strong>Mike Richards</strong>.

Call it a coincidence of sorts if you like but CBS' "The Talk" today announced the three finalists for the ultimate prize of becoming "The Price is Right's" next male model, and their names all just so happen to start with the letter "J."
