It’s the latest social media craze sweeping the internet to kick off 2019 – The 10-Year Challenge. Soap opera stars have joined in on the fun with side by side photos on their social media accounts consisting of one from 2009 followed by a current one from 2019 to show changes over the years. Soaps.com has collected various photos captioned by the daytime stars using the hashtag #10YearChallenge.
Bold and the Beautiful
Darin Brooks (Wyatt) asked for fan advice, “Alright… even though I hate the pic on the left… here’s my #10yearchallenge WTF?!? What was I doing??? What do you all think? For the better?” His wife Kelly Kruger (Eva; Y&R’s Mac) countered, “I clearly need to come up with more creative things to do with my hair 😂 #10yearchallenge 2008 – 2018 wow time FLIES!! This feels like yesterday.”
Days of our Lives
Lauren Koslow (Kate) stated, “#10yearchallenge not sure what it means… but it FLEW by!” Gilles Marini (Ted) added, “A lot is going through my mind, while I reminisce on the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m coming out with one thought. It’s really not about getting older that matters to me. It’s about the person I have become.”
Michelle Stafford (Nina) shared one photo with her furbabies and another with her kids and joked, “Oh good God… Nothing has changed…! #10yearchallenge #replaceddogswithkids.” Anthony Montgomery (Andre) changed up the date and played a different take on the change, “Took me awhile to stop wearing “skin tight” shirts. It was the late 90’s, don’t judge😂 At least I know what I’ll look like if I lose my hair. #10yearchallenge.x 2.”
Young and the Restless
Kate Linder (Esther) acknowledged, “Despite the changes and challenges, the past 10 years have been full of memories that will last a lifetime!?” Daniel Goddard (Cane) gave a shout out to his Lane fans by posting a photo alongside Christel Khalil (Lily) captioned, “So… here’s the #10yearchallenge … #Lane style.” Christian Leblanc (Michael) put a funny spin on his comparison photo!

2008. My first full year in LA. I set weekly goals with my Cali Bff @heycarlyoates, ran 10 miles a week, and networked and worked my butt off to accomplish my weekly career goals. 2019. I’m living my best life (so far), still setting and chasing lofty goals, and still married to the man of my dreams, with several special kiddos in tow. #10YearChallenge
