THE SEMIFINALS: Unlike in past contests, this year there is no pre-established set of 32 semifinalists. Instead, ALL qualifying actors from each daytime soap are eligible. The first four weeks of voting will focus on two soaps only each week (see schedule below). All eligible actors from a given soap will compete against their co-stars only. The top vote-getter from each of the eight daytime soaps will earn a spot in the finals.
WILD CARD WEEK: The hunk who polls in second place for each soap during each semifinal week will return for Wild Card Week. The public’s top vote-getter from this group will also earn a finalist’s spot. The final three spots will be hand-picked from the eight wild card contestants by this year’s three esteemed judges: Nelson Branco, superherofan of superherofannet.com and SoapHunks.net creator, Danny!
