The World According to Kim Kardashian
Why he was hot: Jason Donovan’s soapie incarnation Scott Robinson was a household name, mainly because of his enduring love affair with main squeeze Charlene Mitchell AKA pop princess Kylie Minogue. Their fictitious on-screen wedding actually eventuated in a real life romance.
Why he was/is hot: He was the Home & Away hottie of notable sporting pedigree – his dad is Wally Lewis – but he proved his acting chops when he reached beyond the beachside drama of Summer Bay and landed a gig in Tomorrow, When The War Began.
Why he was hot: He started out on legendary show Sons and Daughters but Craig was one of the biggest drawcards of Neighbours in the 80s alongside Kylie Minogue. He played her character’s brother, the lovable prankster Henry Ramsay.
Why he is hot: Besides the blonde locks and angelic good looks, Jesse Spencer AKA Billy Kennedy will be remembered as one half of Neighbours’ cutest couples when he and Brooke Satchwell AKA Anne Wilkinson paired up – he’s obviously good boyfriend material.
Why he was hot: For ten years in the 1990s Bruce Samazan became the only actor to star in all three of the big soapies ,E Street, Neighbours, and Home & Away - mass appeal!
Why he was hot: He filled the “looks good shirtless” criteria, had dreamy dimples and an adorable wife to boot (Angel, played my Melissa George). There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when his character was killed off!
Why he was hot: Embodying that “x-factor” charm, way back in the late 80s, Guy Pearce AKA Mike Young was stealing hearts on soapie Neighbours. Audiences loved him so much that when his role ended, it wasn’t long before he wound up on Home & Away as David Croft for another small screen stint, before hitting Hollywood big time.
Why he was/is hot: He managed to woo his high school teacher (Claudia Karvan) in his breakthrough film Heartbreak Kid. Charming and good looking, he went from soapie star on Heartbreak High to edgy indie actor in Head On and most recently The Slap.
Why he is hot: Ryan was the sporty one in his family, but when mum took his brother to a casting agency Ryan ended up signed-up and on screen, becoming a Home & Away favourite. Now he’s a True Blood star. Sporty, creative, babe – all rounder!
Why he is hot: After heating up our lounge rooms with stints on local soapies Neighbours and Home & Away he is now a bonafide megastar after teaming up with Natalie Portman in Thor, accruing 10 kilos of muscle mass for the role.
Why he is hot: What can we say, we love a guy that can win a girl over with a song, and Axle can certainly hit the right notes. He’s released his own album and won a regular spot on Home & Away, but the popular vote sealed his hunk status when he won Cleo Bachelor of the Year in 2009.
Why he was/is hot: We may have lost him to Hollywood, but Simon Baker was the gorgeous surfie guy who became an Australian household name, mainly because he was on every Aussie soapie you can think of, think E Street, A Country Practice, Home & Away, and Heartbreak High.
Why he is hot: A tradie-turned-pop star, he became popular with X Factor watchers across Australia. We love that the self-taught singer and musician is fulfilling his teen dream of becoming a star. Now part of the Home & Away family too, he’s certainly kind on the eye.
Why he was hot: Marcus Graham became popular as Wheels in E Street, and that’s where his bad boy appeal was born. While he was the quintessential teen heartthrob back in the day, he’s earned a lot of acting cred through his Shakespeare, Underbelly and Crownies roles.
Why he is hot: Dean first made girls weak at the knees competing on Australian Idol, so moving into Ramsey St as Ty Harper - a character based on an aspiring musician was a natural next step. Now he’s scored a spot on hit US show Glee and he’s way more accomplished than aspiring.
Why he is hot: Nice guy Daniel is, well, not too hard on the eye also. Endearingly, all he wanted when he landed his first acting gig on Neighbours at 17 was a car. He then won a Logie in 1999, starred as a copper in The Bill and years later he’s hosting massive shows like the X Factor.
Why he is hot: Relatively new to the small screen, Steve is a magnet for attention as member of the outlaw surfie gang the "River Boys" and masters the elusive bad boy charm on all time soapie Home & Away.
