Here’s an interesting soapy twist!
Raphael Thompson, who was eliminated from The Price is Right’s Male Model Search (as they look for the next hot dude to fill the void left by DAYS Rob Scott Wilson), was given an opportunity to have a role on The Bold and the Beautiful in an ideal crossover and a dream come true for young Raphael!
Thompson, will make his B&B debut on the upcoming Thursday, November 20th episode playing Forrester Creations employee, Matt, and from the looks of this sneak peek video below, he even shares a moment with visiting Y&R cast member Judith Chapman (Gloria) who is appearing in a guest stint on Y&R’s sister soap!
Apparently, Thompson was a fan of The Price is Right and The Bold and the Beautiful growing up stating to Soap Opera Digest: “As a child wanting to be an actor because of soap operas and actually being on The Bold and the Beautiful was like, ‘Wow, I could really get used to doing this. It would be an amazing and humbling pleasure to be a series regular. That would be the ultimate reward.”
Watch what went down as Thompson was eliminated from The Price is Right Male Model Search but ushered into the world of the soap landing the role and working on set with the Forrester clan and more! Then let us know, does Raphael have the “it” soap factor to you? Would you like to see him live his soap opera dream? Comment below!
