Hollis on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL — Everything You Need To Know
If you’re wondering who the new hunky guy is on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, that’s Il Giardino waiter Hollis, played by actor Hollis W. Chambers! And if the guy looks kind of familiar, it could be because you recognize him from previous appearances on the soap where his character was going by his real name, Paul. The actor also appeared on B&B as a waiter for two episodes back in 2016 and 2017. You might also have seen him in primetime in episodes of ANIMAL KINGDOM, WILL & GRACE, STATION 19, and SHAMELESS.
Paul “Hollis” Hollister first appeared back in December 2021 when he informed Deacon Sharpe that Il Giardino was going to be visited by the health inspectors and the boss wanted the kitchen scrubbed top to bottom, including the bathrooms. As an employee of Il Giardino, he would also show up occasionally when people ate at the restaurant. And when a red-headed woman showed up and started making eyes at Deacon, Paul urged him to go for it… not realizing that the woman in question was actually Sheila Carter! He also popped over to Deacon’s apartment with his niece and nephew to trick-or-treat on Halloween.
In February 2023, Paul approached the table where Brooke Logan and Taylor Hayes were sitting for lunch to wait on them. Hitting on Brooke none-too-subtly, he introduced himself as Paul Hollister, “Hollis” to his friends. He even managed to get Brooke’s phone number so he could text her the receipt since the printer was broken! Later, Taylor ordered takeout from Il Giardino and made sure that Hollis would be the delivery guy so he could flirt with Brooke and even ask her out on a date! Although she had been enjoying being single again, Brooke accepted.
Stay tuned to see what Hollis gets up to next!
