As noted, Josh Duhamel beat out Ashton Kutcher in a 1997 IMTA modeling completion. When the modeling gig didn't pan out as planned, he turned to acting, first in music videos and then on the soap opera "All My Children." He left the daytime drama for the primetime drama of "Las Vegas" in 2003, before jumping to movies like "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!" and the "Transformers" series of movies.
