Though McKeon confessed that even she was nervous to do the live audition, she says Friehling did great. For his part, he looked focused and relaxed doing his audition. He said that it helped that he had auditioned for a soap before. "I think any kind of experience you have, anything on camera, can't hurt."
It did not hurt Candelarie either. A drama teacher's assistant, she said she was encouraged by her students to audition and now she, like Friehling, is a finalist.
She says, "We were talking about you really got to take every opportunity that you can, any door that opens, you got to go through it, so they encouraged me to audition."
