SOAP STAR; Who's your pick?

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 am not really happy with either one. I think it completely depends on if they are doing a recast or a whole new character. I won't know until they are on the show if I like them or not.

Whichever comes on I just hope they do a great job. Sometimes I felt that Ashlee just didn't bring the emotion to the scenes they were doing. But, the Jimena love from the judges was something I didn't see either. Guess that's editing for you.

I would have liked Travis, he was my pick. Unfortunatly he is gone. I liked Justin until his cocky attitude hit my final nerve. Wanting to leave because of the stripping scene and then the baby scenes.

Yves, I would have liked to see him as a Kiriakis. Maybe one of Justin and Adrienne's boys. Heaven knows that age is not a factor on soap operas.

What a ramble for a simple question.

Definitely Jimena!


Ashley got good towards the end, but Jimena rocked it from day one.

I am just glad, either way, a girl will win this time.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

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 glad that Yves didn't make it because I know I would have hated his character no matter who he played because of the episode where Travis got eliminated instead of him for really bullshit reasons.

I like Jimena. She is exotic and I loved her acting. Ashlee just made me think she was acting most of the time. She did not take me to the place where I forgot she was working w/a script.

If Jimena wins I think she will bring some nice new flavor to Salem.

But as has been said, HS will still be writing, so disaster could be just around the corner.

I would accept either of them but I prefer Jimena as well.

Both are good, but I do think Jimena brought it each week. I am just glad Ives didn't get a chance to win because he was atrocious if you ask me about his acting ability. I got pissed a few times when MBE and Sheffer said he definitely has the look, because he seemed to me he got through a few weeks based soley on his looks, which is one reason daytime is where its at right now. I would rather watch someone who can act 9 times oit of 10 over someone who is gorgeous/studly. I am still pissed Travis was "killed" off so early in the season.

The more I watch IWBASS, the more I dislike Sheffer!

I think this might be the first year that two relatively likable and some what talented people made it to the final two. The first season the guy that one was good and was the obvious choice, the second season Alec was better then the other person who made it to the final but there were better choices. Last season, well both the final two were terrible and should of never made it that far. The final two should of been BethAnn and Shamika.

GET EM STEPH!!

I am very happy it's two girls and both have talent. 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 only watched two episodes of the show, but despite my lack of loyal viewership, I wanted Ashley to win. I am pleased she won. I think she will be great. :D
