New performers selected via social media for coveted honor
CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Media Network has named adult starlets Carmen Caliente and Jillian Janson as Trophy Girls for the 2015 AVN Awards Show. The two newcomers were selected for the coveted honor via Twitter in AVN’s Trophy Girl social media contest, which ran through October.
The ceremonial trophy girls serve in a highly visible capacity, which makes this a prestigious assignment for rising stars within the industry. Caliente and Janson will be on stage for the duration of the awards show and featured prominently on the show’s cable broadcast.
“They are beautiful, hard-working, talented and have shown the potential to become true stars. We are thrilled to have them join us for the adult industry’s biggest night,” said Gary Miller, producer of the AVN Awards Show.
A Florida native, Carmen Caliente entered the industry this past year at the age of 20, opposite Erik Everhard inThe Cute Little Babysitters 3, and has since gone on to perform in Teen-aholics, Cumsumption, Manuel Ferrara’s Reverse Gangbang 3, James Deen’s Seven Sins: Wrath, Not Jersey Boys XXX Porn Parody and other titles. With a large fan following on Twitter and a good reputation with adult studios, Caliente’s career is on the fast track.
“I am honored and excited to be attending my first AVN Awards as one of the Trophy Girls!” exclaimed Carmen Caliente. “To be involved directly in the show is one of my many dreams come true. Thank you to AVN for selecting me.”
Nineteen-year-old Minnesota native Jillian Janson made her mark in the industry this past year with strong performances in such high-profile movies as the POV-themed Supreme Booty, opposite Mike Adriano, as well as Real Pickups, All Things Anal 2 andWet Asses 4, among others. Janson’s star is on the rise.
“My biggest dream was to become a performer, and I achieved it,” says Jillian Janson. “After a wonderful first year, I didn’t think life could get any better, until AVN reached out to me announcing I was chosen as one of the 2015 AVN Awards Trophy Girls! I’m extremely honored and grateful for this opportunity. It’s a wonderful feeling to know I can always achieve my dreams regardless of life’s obstacles.”
Caliente and Janson will follow in the footsteps of past Trophy Girls, including Bonnie Rotten, Brett Rossi, Nicole Aniston, Chanel Preston, Teal Conrad, Emily Austin and Rikki Six.
This year’s Trophy Girls will escort talent onstage, as well as assist presenters and the 2015 AVN Awards Show co-hosts, Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol. The adult industry extravaganza will be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on January 24, 2015.
