Here’s some info on how to win a walk-on role on As The World Turns in the Brighten Bay Idol Contest,, along with a giveaway for a year of Cheer detergent.

The Procter & Gamble Company announced the launch of Brighten Bay Idol, an online talent search for the next bight star. The sweepstakes invites consumers to log on to to see if they have what it takes to be a bright spot in a dingy world!

Participants have until March 2 to upload their own ‘Idol’ acting audition video clips for the chance to win a walk-on role on the popular CBS soap series, As the World Turns.

Visitors to will be able to play a role in selecting the ultimate winner, by voting for their favorite video starting March 10.

With the recent news that As the World Turns will be ending its longtime run in September 2010, fans of the soap and Brighten Bay Idol contestants have an exceptionally unique opportunity to become part of soap history and join the cast for a scene during their last season on the air in August 2010.

Additionally, the winner will win a trip to New York City and the opportunity to have professional photos taken of them to help build their portfolio, as well as participate in an exclusive, behind-the scenes tour of the As The World Turns set. The tour will be captured on film with photos and video being posted on and the Brighten Bay Facebook page and the As the World Turns FaceBook fan page.

The contest is part of the Brighten Bay Cheer soap campaign that kicked-off in November and has been brightening laundry routines at an affordable price all across the country. The campaign, which was inspired by daytime dramas, celebrates Cheer’s commitment to provide consumers with sparkling bright clothes, and now at a lower price point.

  3. I’m currently using Wisk but only because it was on sold BOGO! I buy whatever detergent is on sale & whatever will work in my HE washer/dryer. I probably won’t enter the walk on role contest…

  4. I’m a bargain shopper, so I usually buy whatever is on sale. Usually either Cheer, Tide or All. Right now we have a bottle of cheer. I won’t be entering the Brighten Bay Idol contest. I don’t even like having my picture taking, so I know I wouldn’t like being on tv!

  5. I currently use whatever laundry is on sale and I have a coupon for. I don’t plan on entering the contest because I have no talent!

  6. I currently use either Purex or All detergent. And I’m not sure yet if I will be entering the Brighten Bay contest. Thank you for hosting this fabulous giveaway – I would be SO thrilled to win!

  7. Now we use PUrex and we do love it, but we would give Cheer a try if it had one without scent? Several are very sensitive in family and have gotten serious hives from some laundry soaps.

    I am older than dirt…well, FEEL like it anyway, so wont be entering that contest. BUT, I have a Tween that is very quick and is a bit of a showboat…SHE could do it!

  8. Recently I picked up the Cheer For Darks. I would love to do a walk on for As The World Turns I’ll have to check it out further.

  9. I usually buy whatever is the best deal. Currently I’m using Xtra.
    I won’t be entering the Brighten Bay Idol contest.

  10. Right now I am using tide because that was what was on sale and I probably won’t enter..think I would be nervous to act.

  11. I usually buy whatever is on sale. I probably won’t enter the contest because I don’t have the courage 🙁

  12. I currently use Dynamo. I do not plan on entering their contest– I don’t need the camera adding ANY extra weight! LOL

  13. Honestly I use whatever brand is cheapest at the time and no I don’t plan on entering the Brighten Bay Idol contest.

  14. I currently use All detergent and love it! I probably will not enter the “walk on role contest” I would be too shy to do it, lol!
    Thanks for a chance to win!

    I don’t watch soaps, but if I remember, I am all over it!

  17. I use Purex and will not be entering the Brighten Bay Idol contest but I would be one happy camper to win a year’s supply of Cheer! Thank you!

  18. I currently use Purex Laundry Detergent.
