This list was particularly hard to compile because, let’s face it, most soap stars are hotties. With that in mind, we tried to winnow the lists down to a mnageable size based on more than just looks — after all, we crush on people who we find attractively funny, smart or even dastardly, too.
Invariably, someone got left out. We apologize in advance, but think the candidates below represent a good slice from the spectrum of daytime’s most-crushworthy stars. And, yes, we’ve gone back in time, too. It was basically a necessity since daytime soaps are well on the way to extinction.
Be sure to vote below and in all of the TV’s Most Crushworthy polls. Winners in each category will be revealed in the coming weeks, and they’ll then square off for the title of TV’s Ultimate Crush.
