AVN Awards Names Jessie Andrews 4th Red Carpet Host

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Media Network has named Jessie Andrews the fourth red carpet host for the 2012 AVN Awards Show. The heralded newcomer, who is nominated for Best New Starlet, joins superstars Jesse Jane, Dave Navarro, and Kayden Kross, who hosted together the previous year.

Andrews also will be backstage to interview award winners as they step off stage, reprising that role from last year. The tall blonde is herself nominated for six AVN awards in 2012, including Best Actress for Elegant Angel’s Portrait of a Call Girl. That movie, a star vehicle for Andrews, is nominated for 10 AVN awards.

"I am uber excited to be on the red carpet interviewing all the stars this year,” Andrews said. “Last year I was backstage catching the winners' reactions right after they won, and I'll be there again this year. It's also going to be great to be on the red carpet as everyone comes in to talk about their nominations and show off their amazing dresses. It's going to be so much fun, and I'm happy to join the other red carpet hosts for this special night to celebrate our industry." 

Andrews arrived on the porn scene with a bang. Her sun-kissed, freshly-scrubbed look proved immediately popular as Andrews began working for the biggest companies in the industry right off the bat. She's been featured in the pages of Hot Video magazine and in the music video for dubstep artist Borgore's song "Flex."
