To help celebrate on The Young and the Restless’ 45th anniversary, a few of the soap’s stars will appear on The Price is Right. Soaps.com has learned that Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman), Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) and Mishael Morgan (Hilary Curtis) will join the game show on March 26 to honor their soap’s milestone.
Of the guest spot, Ordway told Soap Opera Digest, “I always love hanging out with my favorite people at Price but sharing the day with Mishael and Daniel made it even better.” The actress also posted on Instagram, “Hanging with my friends @realpriceisright today!!! Which means it’s going to be a fun day!”
On the same day, a few Y&R stars will appear on Wheel of Fortune. The game show, which is celebrating 35 years, will welcome Tracey Bregman (Lauren Fenmore), Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), Bryton James (Devon Winters) and Camryn Grimes (Mariah Copeland).
This isn’t the first time these Y&R cast members have made appearances on the CBS game show. Melissa Ordway appeared on The Price is Right for their Halloween special in 2013, while Goddard showed up in December of that year. Ordway returned again in 2014. Meanwhile, former onscreen love interests Mishael Morgan and Kristoff St. John appeared on The Price is Right in 2014.
The Price is Right first aired in 1956 hosted by Bob Cullen. It was revamped in 1972 with Bob Barker taking over hosting duties. Barker famously invited contestants to “Come on down,” until 2007 when Drew Carey took over the role. Contestants compete on the show for cash and prizes (A brand new car!) by guessing the price of various products.
