The Rundown

As we explained when the new ballots went up, we lost some data during the server migration, so we opted to combine the missing weeks with the new voting period.

  • 38,865 total votes were cast during the voting period.
  • DAYS’ Robert Scott Wilson earns his fifth non-consecutive week at #1. Less than 60 votes separate the top 4 this week.
  • The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood holds on to #1 for the second week. Wood doubled her vote total from the previous week.
  • General Hospital’s Drew & Sam earn their fourth non-consecutive #1 atop the couples chart.
  • DAYS’ Tripp & Ciara pairing makes their highest appearance to date at #5.
