Soap opera actors enjoying the big game.
While Super Bowl LIII, half-time show, and even the commercials didn’t necessarily live up to the hype as the New England Patriots met the Los Angeles Rams, stars past and present of The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless were out in force cheering and hosting or attending Super Bowl viewing parties.
Anticipated to be a high-scoring match-up, Super Bowl LIII turned out to be a defensive game virtually free of the exciting big offensive plays fans enjoy, and expected, from the Pats and Rams, which boast Tom Brady and Jared Goff, respectively, as quarterbacks. Accordingly, the ratings came in at a 10-year low for Super Bowl broadcasts, as the Patriots beat the Rams 13 – 3.
B&B’s Patrika Darbo appeared in the Planters Peanuts’ commercial, and Don Diamont (Bill Spencer), dressed in Rams gear, posted a hilarious new clip of his as his wife, Cindy Ambuhel’s ‘sign bitch’ on Super Bowl Sunday. B&B alum Crystal Chappell (Danielle Spencer) posted on Instagram to congratulate the Patriots on their win and added, “Boring game but ya pulled it out!!!”
Days of our Lives’ alum Molly Burnett (Melanie Jonas) shared a photo gearing up for the match and asked, “Double teethin REAL hard on this beautiful #superbowl afternoon 😁🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈 Who we rootin for?” Another DOOL alum, John Enos, who played Elvis, and is also known for his role as Bobby Marcino on Y&R, celebrated the Pats’ win with his two dogs and a shot in an enthusiastic video clip, and Drake Hogestyn (John Black) shared a sweet photo with his newborn grandson in Rams swag in front of a photo of Tom Brady captioned, “Enjoy the game…we are!”
General Hospital actress Michelle Stafford (Nina Reeves) posted a photo with her kids in Rams gear and stated, “Clearly… this was taken before the game… We are STILL diehard #LA and #RAMS fans! Thank you #LARAMS for a GREAT season!!” Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) tweeted his congratulations to the winners, and said, “Congrats to the @Patriots. TB12 is the 🐐and Please pay @Edelman11. Thank you.” Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos) shared a photo from a pre-game hike with her husband. Alum Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) was cheering for the Rams and shared a photo with the statement, “It’s the Super Bowl. I’m in good spirits. Go rams.”
Some actors at Y&R made their picks known before Super Bowl weekend, in a video posted on the show’s Instagram, while other soap actors shared photos on social media during the game. Jason Canela (Arturo Rosales) posted a funny clip almost making a Super Bowl prediction. Kelly Kruger (Mackenzie Browning Hellstrom) shared about her plans with husband, B&B’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt Fuller), and said, “Happy #Superbowl Sunday!! 🏈 Who you rooting for today Rams or Pats? We are staying super cozy today. @theedarinbrooks is gonna BBQ in the rain and I’m gonna eat my body weight in chips. Cuz ya know. Super Bowl. What’re u guys doing?” Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) shared a photo as her group cheered on the Rams, and captioned it, “Come on @rams #superbowl here we go !!!!!!!!!!” Actress Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) and her girls were rooting for the Patriots, as her photo cheered out, “LETS GO PATS!!! ❤️💙❤️ And yes, one of my daughters is pulling my other daughters hair while she is eating a football…” Lexie Stevenson (Mattie Ashby) posted a photo of herself and stated, “Brady’s baby.” Afterward, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), a passionate sports fan, took to Twitter to comment, “Patriot’s defense was awesome! They covered RAMS like a wet blanket and RAMS left EDELMAN and GRONK wide open most of the time!! I’m an outside, amateur admirer of the game, but how can you give two of the most dangerous players wide open????” Alum Tammin Sursok (Colleen Carlton) shared a photo of her sleeping newborn and noted, “Lennon’s thoughts in the superbowl.” Another alum, Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti), simply shared a photo of Tom Brady, as he was cheering for the Pats.
