LOS ANGELES - Digital Playground contract superstar Jesse Jane and AVN Hall of Famer Randy Spears of Wicked Pictures have been chosen to host the third annual F.A.M.E. (Fans of Adult Media and Entertainment) Awards Show on Saturday, June 7, 2008, at the Los Angeles Convention Center as part of Erotica LA.
“I am really excited to host this show," said Jesse. "I love the F.A.M.E. Awards because it truly is all about the fans. Being on stage with Randy Spears is going to be a blast. He is fun and smart, which makes for a great co-host. If you’re going to be in town for Erotica L.A., don’t miss this event, bring your party and let’s get it on people.”
“It’s always an honor to be thought of in this capacity,” said Spears, who was named Favorite Male Performer at the 2007 F.A.M.E. Awards. “I’m very excited to be in the same room with Jesse, let alone hosting the awards with her, not only because she makes me look tall, but really because I love Jesse. I’m looking forward to seeing all the fans and stars out there in attendance, and the field of nominees this year is incredible. We’re all going to have a great time.”
"We are honored to have the most popular adult stars in the world hosting this year's show. Jesse and Randy are both incredible. With them on board, we are guaranteed a fantastic turnout and a great time thanks in part to such well-known and entertaining hosts," said Dan Davis, F.A.M.E. Awards spokesman and GENESIS magazine's Editor in Chief. "Jesse Jane is an industry icon and a long-time fan favorite,. You meet this girl and you immediately fall in love with her looks and attitude. Randy is both an incredible performer and has an incredible personality. We feel the chemistry this year will be unbeatable and that Jesse and Randy will give fans a show to remember."
The first round of voting to determine the finalists in the fan-based awards show is currently underway on the F.A.M.E. website, www.thefameawards.com. Response for this year's show is already surpassing last year's totals as the stars and studios are stumping for votes. In addition, this year the F.A.M.E. Awards has increased the number of categories to 15.
The F.A.M.E. Awards were created in 2006 by industry leaders Genesis Magazine (www.genesismagazine.com), Adam & Eve (www.adameve.com), WantedList.com and AVN.com as a way for fans to honor their favorite adult film stars, directors, movies and companies. It is the first show where the fans take part in the entire process —from choosing the finalists to ultimately selecting the winners in over a dozen categories.
Admission to the 2008 F.A.M.E. Awards is free with admission to Erotica LA. Information on tickets for the convention can be found at www.erotica-la.com.
