The Bold and the Beautiful fans have been seeing more of talented actress Jennifer Gareis these days as her character Donna has been tending to an ill Logan sister. It’s been fantastic to see Gareis onscreen as she helps out with Katie’s (Heather Tom) latest dilemma.
Katie needs a kidney, and unfortunately, Donna is not a match, something that was learned during the Friday cliffhanger show. You just know that sweet and loving Donna would have given both kidneys if she could!
We hope that Jennifer Gareis stays on the canvas a bit longer this time around, but in the meantime, here are some fun facts about the beautiful thespian who has reigned supreme as Donna Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful since 2006.

Before that, she was a beauty pageant contestant and was named the second runner-up on her very first try, the Miss Pennsylvania USA pageant in 1992.
From her auspicious debut, Gareis went on to enjoy more success on the circuit. She won the 1994 Miss New York USA title and represented New York in the Miss USA 1994 pageant. Jennifer Gareis eventually placed in the top six of the pageant contestants.
