Trial and Error

Pimping My Soap Star Girls

October 10, 2007 11:35 AM

I’ve already maxed out my votes, using my five allotted ones last night to vote for Ashlee, one of the two finalists for SoapNet’s reality series “I Wanna Be a Soap Star.”

(Sure, it’s not as big as “American Idol.” But who cares!)

This is the one reality show I follow year in, year out. And for the first time ever—it’s about time because the show is in its fourth season—SoapNet is letting fans have a say. Fans can vote either via a toll-free number or online at SoapNet.com through this evening.

Viewer votes will count for 50 percent of the final decision to determine which of the two soap wannabe chickadees, Jimena or Ashlee, wins a contract role on “Days of Our Lives.”

You can vote here: http://soapnet.go.com/shows/soapstar4/vote.html

Even if you have never seen the show, you can still vote. How, you ask? Just click on the “videos” link on the above page to watch the performances of the two finalists.

The winner will be revealed live on the air on Oct. 16.
