James Clement didn’t win the $1 million grand prize onÂ Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains, but he managed to nab another TV gig in the process. The three-time Survivor vet will appear on the popular soap opera, The Young and The Restless, in June. Keep reading for more details on his dramatic new role…
James Clement definitely has experience being in front of a TV camera. The gravedigger has appeared on three different seasons ofÂ Survivor. He first appeared on Survivor: China before earning a spot in Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites. Most recently, he competed for a million bucks on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. His next TV venture won’t be of the reality competition variety, but rather a popular soap opera.
CBS recently announced that theÂ Survivor star will appear on an upcoming episode of The Young and the Restless on June 4th. Clement will play a police officer, appearingÂ in scenes alongside Greg Rikaart, Peter Bergman, Eric Braeden, and Joshua Morrow. TheÂ Survivor alum admits to being a longtime fan of the show. He’s not the firstÂ Survivor contestant to work on The Young and the Restless though. FellowÂ Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains competitor, Colby Donaldson, appeared on one episode of the hit soap opera in 2004.
The Young and the Restless airs every weekday onÂ CBS. Clement’s acting debut will air on Friday, June 4th.
