VENICEIn an unexpected twist, Rising Star PR has announced that both Leya Falcon (pictured, right) and Nicki Blue have won the three year anniversary contest for Next Rising Star of 2012. After two weeks of intense fan voting on Twitter for the Sweet Six, these two fierce competitors each racked up a thousand votes and came within ten votes of one another – prompting a tie.

“I've never seen anything like it,” claimed Rising Star PR founder Devan Cypher. “Both girls were so competitive yet they remained kind to one another, encouraging their voters and complimenting one another. Both girls have shown they have the drive and class to make it as super stars in this business.”

Owing to the massive campaign both girls waged over the last three days of the competition, the tie-breaking rule that saw former Rising Star clients and Best New Starlets Kagney Linn Karter and Brooklyn Lee selecting the winner has been waived. Instead, both girls have been named winners and will receive complimentary services from Rising Star PR for the next month. In addition to a full month of publicity from the industry’s leading public relations company, the girls will share a booth at the upcoming LA Adultcon. The amazing lineup of runners-up—Allie James, Jenna J Ross, Katt Dylan and Kendra Lust—will also be offered reduced price booths at the show.

“This contest has really brought the best out in all the girls,” Cypher added. “We had some of the girls encouraging their followers to vote for other contestants! It is because of this spirit of cooperation that we have decided to offer special summer rates not just to our Sweet Six but to any new performer interested in promoting themselves.”

Performers looking to take their career to the next level are encouraged to contact Devan at to discuss their potential.

“I'd like to thank all the contestants, the wonderful followers on Twitter, and Adultcon for making this contest fun for everyone,” concluded Cypher. “Don't forget to congratulate our two amazing winners!”
