He's not just "America's Favorite," he's also a soap star! Big Brother 16 contestant Donny Thompson wasn't named champ on last night's season finale of the CBS reality hit — he was evicted from the house weeks ago — but at the end of the show, the North Carolina groundskeeper did bag $25,000 in a viewer popularity poll.
Now he's off to the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, where he'll appear in scenes on Oct. 30-31 with Emmy winner Scott Clifton (Liam) and Aussie beauty Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) that'll riff on the paranoia Donny caused on Big Brother — he was so humble and down-home nice that the other houseguests suspected he was really a genius doctor from Harvard or an undercover super soldier.

Sound the trumpets! Hope Logan has finally made up her mind. Daytime's splashiest soap opera, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful, went on location to Paris and Monte Carlo to shoot the conclusion of a year-long triangle that has the love-torn heroine (played by Kim Matula) deciding which of two Spencer brothers she's going to wed. Will it be flaky sweetheart Liam (Scott Clifton) or feisty opportunist Wyatt (Darin Brooks)? Spoiler alert! Though Hope is seemingly committed to Liam right now, she will end up married to Wyatt by the end of the episode airing Wednesday, Aug. 13.
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the Bel Air farm, after they've seen Paree? CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful went on location to Paris and Monaco for the latest twist in the Hope-Wyatt-Liam love triangle, and TV Guide Magazine has a first-look clip!
This fashion montage, from the soap's Aug. 8 episode, features goddess-in-training Hope Logan (Kim Matula) modeling the Hope for the Future Diamond in the famed Trocadero Gardens, with the Eiffel Tower in the background and one of her lover boys, Wyatt (Darin Brooks), looking on adoringly.
Thorsten Kaye, Heather Tom
It's March Madness on CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) hit the sack. Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) hits the bottle. Dead Darla (Schae Harrison) returns as a ghost. And who knows what's going on with that crazy Aly (Ashlyn Pearce)? TV Guide Magazine went to exec producer-head writer Bradley Bell for all the dish.
Katherine Kelly Lang
In a first for daytime drama, The Bold and the Beautiful is gearing up for a location shoot in the United Arab Emirates — specifically Abu Dhabi and Dubai — that will involve...
The Bold and the Beautiful led the way at Sunday's Daytime Emmy Awards, taking home four prizes including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for Heather Tom, as well as awards for writing and directing. Days of Our Lives, however, claimed the night's biggest prize, for Outstanding Daytime Drama.
Here it is folks — that annual exercise in utter foolishness and certain humiliation known as my Daytime Emmy predictions! But, hey, don't take my word for anything. For the first time ever, you fans can watch the reels that each nominated show and star submitted to the blue-ribbon panels by going to HLNtv.com. And don't miss the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, airing live on HLN from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 16 (8/7c). Suds-sational!
The stars of daytime's No. 2 soap are about to get a big dose of reality: On September 7, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful will start broadcasting in high definition, a development "that will take our show to a whole new look and level," exec producer Brad Bell tells TV Guide Magazine. "We knew back when we did all that CGI work on the Brookeberries story that it would have been so much better in high-def. Now we've got what we need to really move the show forward. And it's about time because, globally, you need to be high-def. It's now expected that you deliver your product that way." (B&B is the most widely seen daily drama in the world.)
The Bold and the Beautifu
The Bold and The Beautiful was the big winner at the 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, taking home the trophy for Outstanding Drama Series for the third consecutive year.
It received four awards altogether, as it also tied in the directing category with another CBS soap, The Young and the Restless, while Heather Tom was named best supporting actress and Scott Clifton won best young actor.
It's time for that annual exercise in hopelessness, pointlessness and foolishness — predicting the Daytime Emmys! I mean, seriously, why do we bother? You can think you have good taste and know award-worthy talent when you see it. You can spend hours upon hours reviewing the reels that each of the nominees has submitted to the judges. And then it can all blow up in your face with three little words: Drew Tyler Bell. Yes, my little soap peeps, anyone can win at the Daytime Emmys (which air Sunday at 8/7c, on CBS). Anyone. So, with that in mind, here we go...
