On last night’s episode of CBS’ Big Brother it was fan favorite Donny who got evicted from the Big Brother house u a heartbreaking moment to may of those following the reality series!

And shortly after receiving the devastating boot, Big Brother host and co-host of The Talk, Julie Chen had a surprise for Donny to lift his spirits!

Chen informed Donny that he has been offered a role on CBS Daytime’s hit soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful!

News of a role was good news as Donny admitted to Julie that he was a groundskeeper, and that he had to resign his position working for a school district in Albemarle, North Carolina, to appear on Big Brother.

Now the question is; will Donny become the groundskeeper for the Forresters?  What role will he play on the soap? And if you let your mind run wild, is their a character that Big Brother’s Donny could be a love match for? Weigh-in below!

He’s just a humble groundskeeper who loves the game of Big Brother. He actually wanted to have his beard shaved but the show doesn’t want to let him do that. he actually looks very young without his beard.

It seems to be that real and dedicated Actors are seeking out roles and in need of work, especially considering the lack of daytime dramas being produced. I don’t mean to sound “preachy” but show-business or should I say the so-called “entertainment field” most certainly isn’t what it used to be with all the Reality garbage out there. I’m not a young guy anymore but I can tell you if I were a young actor today I would feel challenged by the lack of dramatic acting opportunities.

TOTALLY AGREE….what qualifies for an “actor” these days is disrespectful to those who actually did their time and studied, honed their skills and worked their way up the ladder!!!! SMH I don’t wwatch ANY Reality shows for that reason! It’s ALL Trash!

Acting as a profession has always been and always will be highly competitive, and the advent of reality television certainly hasn’t help, but this is just shameless cross promoting of CBS shows. Donny isn’t the first BB fan favorite to get a bit role on the soap. It isn’t a steady gig, although if Donny is given some lines, he could be get his union card and go for other roles, but based on what I saw on BB this summer, this guy isn’t likely to go the Hollywood route. I have known actors, and those who are truly passionate… Read more »

Donny’s a sweetheart– not sure he will feel comfortable with all those Hollywood types, but wish him well on his appearance–most likely it will be just a walk on, or a short term gig.

Big Brother was pre empted in NY last night, So here I am settled in to watch. Halfway through episode I click on MichaelFairman soaps and BAM the episode is spoiled for me. There should be a 24 hour rule on posting spoilers or at least a warning. So if the show comes on at 8:00pm , you have until the next night at least to watch before somebody ruins it. Just my thoughts

And just mine. Sometimes that happens so i’ve learned to stay off the internet..especially sites that provide East Coast spoilers until i’ve watched the show without inadvertently finding out because I just couldn’t wait. Good lesson to learn. And why on EARTH would you be watching a show you love and surfing the internet at the same time instead of waiting until the show was over??? SMH…there shouldn’t be a rule on posting aired shows…there should just be common sense rules for people on the net..which most of us utilize.

HEY MICHAEL, I AM FROM NC SO I WAS PULLING FOR DONNIE. I ALREADY KNEW HE WOULDN’T WIN CAUSE HE WAS A GOOD GUY. HE HAD FEELINGS OF RIGHT & WRONG WHICH U CAN’T HAVE IN BIG BROTHER. THEY KNEW DONNY WOULD WIN IF THEY WERE IN THE FINAL 2. I HOPE DONNIE SHOWS THEM WHAT A WINNER REALLY IS WHEN THEY SEE HIM ON THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL. HE IS WHAT A REAL SOUTHERNER OF NC CAN BE. SO PROUD OF HIM.

I agree edna I am in the process of moving to nc in oct and I was pulling for Donny also..i think he shows real character and he was very kind to everyone..that is why he lost..they should get that damn Victoria out I cant stand her and derrick

My hometown was Emerald Isle, NC, and I too pulled for Donny, as did my husband and father in law, btw we are in TN. Donny would have had a chance to make it to the final 2 if he would have strategized a little more and picked which people to confide too. His only true ally in the game was Nicole. I think Donny might be a little out of place on B&B, but at the same time I think he can pull it off. I really don’t see what the rush in getting Victoria out is, I mean… Read more »

Vicky… be nice!! You really should have tuned in to know who and what he is all about.. He is a great guy with the biggest heart… He has and had everyone in that house “heart” growing a few notches bigger because they had the experience with him. He is not an actor, but cbs is trying to capitalize on the younger Big Brother Audience to get them to turn into Bold and Beautiful Do not worry.. he will only be there for one or two episode and will not be a main character.. … Many of you are judging… Read more »

Donnie is not going to take a job Away from anyone, he will do a couple scenes with few lines. I think it is a nice gesture to give him a little attention post big brother. He was my reason to watch Big brother this summer, what a kind, genuine human being. If only he could have won the veto. He would need to win HOH as well to advance. He would win the game if he made finals. I would love to see him on the Amazing Race. I see nothing wrong with CBS milking his popularity.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
