Celeb Collins Building Lead In "Trading With Stars"

Stephen Collins

Actor Stephen Collins continues to make solid gains each day--and he's very consistent in adding $3,000 a day in Bonus Bucks (so that's why we put in his picture). His strategy is paying off as he builds his lead in "Trading With The Stars." Actor Ernie Hudson is making some buys and sells as is Hall of Famer Johnny Bench--who's still in 9th place, but at least he's staying out of the cellar--ahead of actor Willie Garson, who's also busy with the buys and sells.

Here's video of Stephen from today's "Morning Call" appearance:
