A casting call from last summer described Ben as "early-to-mid 20s… midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary."
Gaston began shooting scenes in mid-October and will first air on the February 26 episode.
The Louisiana native was a contestant on the sixth season of NASHVILLE STAR. In 2010, he joined Simon Fuller's interactive reality web series, IF I CAN DREAM.
Gaston is married to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS actress Melissa Ordway (Abby).
