Stars from The Young and the Restless took to their social media accounts to participate in the 10 year challenge — a challenge that recently made the rounds as people everywhere dug up their decade-old photos. Many fan favorites revealed their stunning good looks, and how they’ve changed over the past decade.
It is fun to look back to see how hairstyles and clothing have changed since roughly 2009, and amazingly pretty much every single soap star has aged rather gracefully. The official Y&R social media accounts got in on the viral challenge, sharing side-by-side images of Nick Newman actor, Joshua Morrow. In the caption, the show asked fans to chime in with who else they’d love to see in the fun comparison photos.
Viewers instantly responded by asking for comparisons of Esther (Kate Linder) and Jill (Jess Walton). Plus, plenty hoped to see Victoria (Amelia Heinle), Devon (Bryton James), Sharon (Sharon Case), and Neil (Kristoff St. John).
Followers also commented on how they feel about Nick on the show. One wrote, “We grew up together. Always love watching me some Nicholas. Your character never changes.”
Another hoped to see more Nick 2.0 with the response, “Nick will be the new Victor Newman very soon, I’m loving this!!!!!!!!!!!”
Meanwhile, stars Camryn Grimes (Mariah, former Cassie), Kate Linder, Tracey Bregman (Lauren), and Daniel Goddard (Cane) shared their own versions of the challenge on their Instagram accounts.
Because Grimes is just 29 years old, her photos looked entirely different — and they proved that the soap star just becomes more beautiful as she grows. Grimes grew up on the show as Cassie Newman, and she took home a Daytime Emmy at the age of 10 for her portrayal.
Meanwhile, Tracey Bregman — who’s gone through so much this past year in losing her home to the California wildfires — shared hers, and she proved that she had taken the past decade in stride.
Kate Linder stunned her followers with the 10 year challenge photos. She said that the past decade has been filled with challenges — and also wonderful memories.
Meanwhile, Daniel Goddard took to his Instagram account to share pictures of himself and Christel Khalil — whom fans call “Lane” — Lily plus Cane. Currently, viewers do not love that Cane is cheating on Lily with Victoria, while Lily serves her prison sentence for her part in the crash that led to Hilary’s demise. The Inquisitr‘s Y&R spoilers show that things are about to get worse for Cane and Lily. Goddard reminded fans how much they adore the Genoa City couple, a couple who seem to be on the rocks right now.
On Twitter, the official Y&R account shared a bevy of comparisons that also featured Christian LeBlanc (Michael) along with Bryton James, Amelia Heinle, Tracey Bregman, Sharon Case, and Kristoff St. John.
