Four of daytime's hottest hunks — Galen Gering (Rafe, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), Michael Mealor (Kyle, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), and Donnell Turner (Curtis, GENERAL HOSPITAL) — made a special appearance on THE REAL! If you missed the Oct. 21 episode, we've got a couple of clips for you to enjoy.
First, Turner admitted how he didn't get the part on GH he initially auditioned for, but the network loved him and created a character specifically for him. Then, he revealed how he's had some input in making his daytime role his own. "I was wooing my lady love, who is now my wife," Turner explained. "And they had me doing some old, you know, 'Oh, I see something in your hair,' like a butterfly. And I'm like, 'Hm, that's a false moment, you know? I've never been that dude that yawns to put my arm around the lady.' And I said, 'Plus, you don't touch a black woman's hair.' And so, with that, they were like, 'Oh, just do it.' I'm like 'Look, let's be a little bit culturally sensitive here.'"
Then, all four hunks played "Answer or Eat" with the hostesses where they were forced to either answer an embarrassing question or eat something nasty. Gering answers a personal question, but Mealor opts instead to eat fried crickets! Check out the highlights here!
