Taking place on January 21, 2017 in Las Vegas, the two will share the stage and entertain stars and fans of the Adult Entertainment Industry. Tony Rios, AVN Media Network CEO said, “It was so wonderful to share the thrill of revealing the news with so many adult stars and industry powerbrokers around us. We’re delighted with the new hosts and look forward to seeing what’s in store for the fans at the 2017 AVN Awards Show. We had a great night and we’ll keep the fun going in Vegas, starting off with the opening day of the AVN Show on January 18 all the way to the last cocktail at the awards show after-parties.”
Riley Reid is one of the biggest names in the adult industry. She was named the 2016 AVN Female Performer of the Year as well as winning the showcase movie award for her Tushy movie – Being Riley. In previous years Reid has been nominated for and won multiple AVN awards. When she found out she was chosen as a host for the awards show, Riley said, “I was simply shocked and at first ready to say no for the fact that the last two shows had a song and dance routine, which isn’t my forte…Tony and Gary laughed and were quick to tell me … they wanted me for the fact that while winning my awards this past AVN they said that I conquered the stage, my personality shined through.” Riley is honored to be ask to host the show alongside Aspen – “Being asked to host the awards show is an honor and a pleasure alike. I never once ever thought I’d be winning awards year after year, let alone hosting the awards show. Not that hosting the awards show changes how I feel about where I am with my career, but at the same time it feels so damn good to know that I’m recognized by my peers. … This is another incredible experience I get to add to my list of life experiences.”
Aspen Rae, the 2016 Penthouse Pet of the Year and girl/girl performer who has worked mostly with Girlfriends Films said, “I was in disbelief! After I received the phone call asking if I wanted the opportunity to co-host, it felt like I was being proposed to. ‘Yes! Yes! A million times yes!’” Rae is a passionate advocate for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. She competes in bodybuilding shows around California and she’s learning how to fly helicopters.
