That’s right! We are down to the semi-finals in soaphunks.net’s annual Adonis competition where soap fans can cast their vote for who is the overall, “Hottie”! The men still in the running for the Adonis 2011 competition are:  OLTL’s David Gregory (Ford) Y&R’s, Daniel Goddard (Cane) and DAYS, James Scott (EJ).

With two weeks to go, we hear the race is close and Week 10 of the voting competition is on now through August 9th. The voting results will be announced  on soaphunks.net on August 10th.  That means, next week fans will find out which hunk was given the boot and must wear a shirt…leaving only two of your favorites to battle it out in the final round with the final results announced on August 17th!

Now when deciding who to cast your vote for here are some points of interest…so let’s review!

Daniel Goddard: Has an energized fan base that seems to be pretty active on Twitter. In the prior 7 years of Adonis, no Y&R star has ever finished better than 7th place, but now he can’t do any worse than 3rd no matter what.

David A. Gregory: His fans are gathering on the actor’s Facebook page and coordinating efforts. David won the top award (“Best Hunk”) at the site’s other big contest– the year-end Soaphunks.net Awards last year.

James Scott: Has won Adonis the past four years, so obviously has history on his side. Obviously has a large, organized fan base that drives his efforts, mostly on message boards.

In an interesting turn of events there is one actor per network left in the competition, so it is shall we say, well-rounded!

So let us know here, who should win Adonis 2011 and why and make sure to cast your vote!

    A good body or a pretty face means nothing to me if there is not intelligence, humor, talent, personality, terrific faults, and depth behind the eyes of the individual. It’s a pity that , at least Gregory ( I am not familiar with the other two) seems to me to be little more than a blow-up doll. Trevor St. John, on the other hand, seems to encompass all of these things and they are visible behind his eyes. That, to me, is someone who is attractive. But then, I never claim to be part of the mainstream.

    You say that David is nothing more than a blow-up doll…that he has no intelligence, personality or depth behind his eyes. I’ve known David for many years and he is one of the smartest, sweetest guys you could ever meet. You shouldn’t judge someone that you don’t know in real life….when in actuality, you only get to watch him on TV and get to see him “portray” someone that he is not…..I say, David should WIN!!!

    I agree with J! I find the comment of David Gregory being a ‘blow-up-doll’ ,insulting, and in poor taste. To make such false assumptions because of someone’s looks, is not only being careless, but the statement is compeletely baseless! David is a trained actor, who has a degree in music theatre. This is not someone who was just hired because of his good looks, on the contrary, he is also a talented actor and singer. I second the motion, David should win!!

    You are certainly welcome to agree with J and to have your own opinion.
    I believe my point was missed, but okay. As I said, best of luck to him and to you.

    I was just musing that the phrase “Blow-up doll” is being imbued with meaning I haven’t given it. I meant “blow-up doll” not in the sexualized manner (I’m guessing it was mistaken due to the nature of these awards, but I’m just guessing) but in the way of placeholder, random young, sexy everyman, pane-of-glass way. This is more of a commentary on what the writers have created as a character than it is on the individual. In fact, I am neutral on David Gregory, and I will explain. The Ford are pretty much a plot device family created to develop story for the main families in Llanview. I have not seen any depth in any of them. Inez was played by Jessica Leccia, and she has been good in what I have seen her. Nate exists to create conflict between Todd and Dani, to make Dani act moronically, and to be disturbing because the actor is way too old for Kelley. James exists as an accessory to Starr, being hot (and jealous when necessary). Ford is nothing but a stereotype who is manipulated based upon what is needed. The role was designed for <>. I am neutral on David Gregory because he has not shown me anything else but what was written on the page. In another role he may be brilliant but I have yet to see it. In my opinion, the character is meaningless and boring. However, the actor has an opportunity to make me see something else, and I haven’t yet.
    For example, Téa is often used as a plot device or is a background character. (try watching “Perfect Stranger” for a prime example, and especially the courtroom scenes at the end in which she has no lines and is not a focus. She is the only reason that horrible movie is worth watching, honestly) However, no matter what crap she is given, the eye is drawn to her like no actor I have ever seen. She makes even filler worth watching.
    My point is, while David Gregory may do very well in a role that is written to have depth and meaning, I have not seen anything outside of what has been written as of yet. Therefore, I have not seen anything else from him. I am not making personal commentary on whether he is a nice person or whether he is a good friend because I have not seen anything outside the script.
    Please feel free to comment on my statement, me personally, or not, as you wish.

    Oops, the Fords should be plural and my bracket content disappeared: Young, sexy man with a good body.

    Di replied

    The role of Ford is much more than a supportive 2-dimensional character. I would put him in the same class as that of Rex. He is a complex character that has much more depth than some of the other on the show. His transformation over the last 2 years is incredible, and Ron Carlivati has done a phenomenal job developing this character. With the hint of foreshadowing, Ford’s journery has led him to Jessica. It is not an accident that these 2 characters have been placed together. David Gregory has made Ford his own, and this is a credit to him as an actor.

    J replied

    Alexa,

    With what you are saying….that David “hasn’t shown you anything else besides what he is given on the page” is because you don’t know him and/or seen him do anything else besides Ford, so how can he show you himself when he is playing someone else? Another good point that Di pointed out…the character of Ford was only created about 2 years ago…so in the entertainment business side of it…they could have gotten rid of his character easily and no one would had been upset by this, if he wasn’t a good actor. BUT, due to the fact that David took the role and made something out of it…they based other story lines and characters around his….he must be doing something right as an actor…wouldn’t you say?

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I respect that. I merely just think that you (alexa) were attacking David Gregory as a person and actor…instead of the character “Ford” (which I feel he does a great job at).

    Thanks

    Daniel Goddard is the whole package. He is drop dead gorgeous, an exceptionally good actor,, his fans love him because he shares his life with them and is very interactive with them. He is a very down to earth family man who absolutely adores his wife Rachael and two boys, Ford and Sebastian. He tries so very hard to give his boys a normal life and is very hands on raising them. He is very appreciative of everything his fans do for him. He just quite simply has it all.

    I believe I characterized my response with “seems.” I am sure he is a lovely person; I am merely pointing out what he has made visible to me, nothing else. I wish him well, as I wish you well despite the fact that you just judged me.

    David Gregory is much more than a pretty face, a great smile and a gorgeous body. He can play charming bad boy and sweet dad/brother/friend on OLTL. He is one of the main reasons I tune in. He’s also very fan-friendly, down to earth and a wonderful ambassador for the show. Best of the bunch. Deserves the Adonis this year – hands down.

    It’s Daniel Goddard’s year to win. He deserves it. He not only is easy on the eyes, he has an amazing love and compassion for his family and fans that emanates through his interaction with his fan page. Nothing makes a man sexier than intelligence and genuine concern for other people. Thanks DG for loving all of us so much. This year is for you if the GFFs have anything to say about it!

When he smiles its like a million lights go on and brighten up the room so for me he is Adonis.
