Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I still cannot see why one would leave contract status on Days to be a glorified Vanna White on the Price is Right unless they were told that Days would not be renewing their contract or Days pays contract players a lot less than I think they get.I could see someone leaving to take over Drew Carey's spot but not to be an announcer or model.
Right. But that other guy is the one whose imdb lists the price is right.
:facepalm: Justin is not leaving Days for TPIR. Rob has been on The Price is Right since 2012 and appears periodically, even when he was doing AMC. I'm guessing it's not too difficult to show up, take his shirt off, and point at things for a couple hours while still doing other projects. Who knows why Justin may (or may not) have been recast? With what little I've seen of both actors, I'd say it's an even swap.
Rob's Instagram seems to indicate that he's taped TPIR recently, up until 2 months ago, if not more recently. If Justin Gaston is swapped out with someone in May, that means that the new person started taping in... December (I think?) if Days is 5-6 months ahead.

The only downside to my theory is that I can't imagine NBC's Days of our Lives allowing one of their contract actors to appear on CBS' game show (even in this age of soaps' "all for one, one for all" mindset.)

katemansi @robertscottwilson stole my sunnies.

robertscottwilson @katemansi jacked my style

katemansi @robertscottwilson ok. Whatever you say

So, obv Kate Mansi's relationship with Rob Wilson is close enough that they interact and joke together. Allow me to make a rather large inference in that this only occurs when you interact on a regular basis... like working steadily together?

I just don't see how the clue "Some fans may not be smiling" would apply to the guy playing Ben.We have barely seen him.The clues seem to indicate that someone is leaving Days to go to the Price is Right but I haven't heard anything about replacing Drew Carey and I can't imagine anyone leaving Days to be an announcer on the Price is Right.The only person who might fit is Shawn Christian.Maybe Liam does kill him or he dies trying to save Jennifer/Nicole.
When Jason was dropping hints about Justin Gaston joining the cast, one of them was a smiley face, in reference to Justin's ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus. That's the connection to "smiling" - at least in my mind.

Is Justin Gaston being replaced by Rob Wilson?

They look similar and could pass for the same age.

The only Days cast member Rob Wilson is following on Twitter is Kate Mansi (obviously, Ben's love interest...) Hmmm...

I can definitely be okay with this change.
