The 24-year-old Bold and the Beautiful actor shared his excitement on Instagram after the nominations were announced.
“3-24-16 is the day everything changed,” he wrote. “I wake up on an active volcano in Hawaii to a call from @boldandbeautifulcbs saying I was just nominated for an Emmy. During this exact same moment my family is on their way to auction off our family farm.”
Pierson went on, “Reasons being my dad has had three heart attacks in the last 6 years from the stress of debt running our farm and being a hero with my mom for us kids. I’ve got so many things to be grateful for right now and am so honored to be apart of this amazing show on @cbsdaytime . Thank you to everyone who continue to support me no matter what. To celebrate Im jumping off a cliff… Farewell!”
