Millions of viewers tune in daily to watch the drama unfold on their favorite soap operas. It also doesn't hurt that many of the male soap stars are some of the sexiest people on television.
Primetime viewers can't seem to get enough of McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) or McSteamy (Eric Dane) on Grey's Anatomy, but they better watch out. These daytime stars will give you a run for your money:
Aiden Turner is best known for his role as Aidan Devane on ABC's "All My Children." Turner joined the cast in 2002 and left briefly in May 2004 due to a "family emergency." He returned a few months later and has been playing this role ever since.
Cameron Mathison is best known for his role as the sexy Ryan Lavery (also on "All My Children), who spent the first four years without his shirt on. His chisled abs and gorgeous eyes make Mathison one of the sexiest daytime soap stars.
"All My Children's" Billy Biller plays the crazy, but sexy, Richie Novak. Richie arrived in Pine Valley and called himself Wes. He immediately took interest in Babe Chandler and used that attraction to get information about certain Pine Valley Residents. Turns out Richie, a.k.a. Wes, was stalking his sister Annie. This is when everyone learned that Wes was really her psycho brother Richie who was just released from prison.
James Scott, another "All My Children" hottie, first started out in Pine Valley where he played the role of Ethan Cambias from 2004 until 2006. Later that year he moved to Salem where he originated the role of E.J. Wells DiMera on Days of Our Lives.

John McBain (Easton) first came to Llanview in 2003 where he fooled many people into thinking that he was a pool scout. It didn't take long for people to know that John was a good guy. He was an FBI agent. After a car accident, John was presumed dead. Like many soap operas, he wasn't dead. No one knew he was lying in a hospital bed. In fact, everyone thought John was Hugh Hughes. As always, the truth finally came out, and he now faces a road filled with many challenges. He's back on the force fighting the bad guys trying to make Llanview a great place for everyone.
Colin joined the cast of "All My Children" in 2005 where he plays Erica Kane's (Susan Lucci) supposedly aborted son Joshua. Between his eyes, abs, sexy dimples and devilish smile, it's easy to see why he is one of the sexiest men on the show.
