Who did you vote as the number one actor, actress and couple for the week of August 19, 2013? Find out in the newest edition of the Pulse Results.

Soap fans cast their votes over the weekend to determine their favorite actor, actress, couple and best soap for the previous week. Your votes determine the positions and your comments represent why you made your selections.

  • Due to requests from readers, we began publishing the the total number of VOTES cast for week.
  • A few weeks ago, we instituted a change in the way fans vote for their favorites. Missed it? Don’t worry, we’ll recap it for you. Fans can only vote for ONE actor, actress and couple per ballot, as opposed to selecting stars/couples from each show on the same ballot.
  • WHY THE CHANGE?: A couple of reasons:
    • We wanted to increase the competition among the fans and allow the opportunity for other actors to be represented each week. It’s easy to cast a vote for all of your favorites, but when you can only select one, it makes your vote mean more.
    • This officially merges the couple selections and fan’s choice. Now, EVERY couple is a write in. You can choose one that’s together on-screen, might be together on-screen or those you hope will be together on-screen. It’s up to you.
    • This reduces the amount of time we have to spend sorting through ballots (meaning results will go up earlier).
    • Another benefit? It will hopefully reduce the amount of votes we have to discard for people who can’t follow the rules and try to automate multiple votes per day.

Total Votes Cast: 10,274

Soap of the Week
SPOTLIGHT FAN COMMENTS

Voting for Rebecca Herbst and Tyler Christopher from GH along with their ship pairing of Nikolas & Elizabeth (Niz). Here’s to hoping Liz will be done with AJ romantic, while being there for him friendship-wise, and moving on with Nikolas. Hopefully, we can FINALLY get our couple. We’ve waited long enough. No more triangles or quads, just Niz please!! The rest is trash. – Kristen M.

I voted for GH’s Michael Easton (Silas Clay) and Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan) individually and as a pairing. I love forward to their characters’ developing romance heating up soon. The momentum definitely needs to be picked up because these two have chemistry that is too good to waste! – Maria

My vote x2 is for the dynamic duo of EJ DiMera and Samantha Brady! Their love for one another and the on screen chemistry of James Scott and Alison Sweeney phenomenal! James and Alison have brought EJ and Sami to life and their fans simply adore them for their portrayals and the natural chemistry shown by them! We love you, James and Ali! – bettyrj

Voted for Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey as favorite actor and Eileen Davidson as favorite actress. Will And Sonny are my favorite couple. Days of our Lives continues to be favorite soap. - kayhan
