Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2014/03/14 - As the RealityWanted TV Awards conclude their first week of voting, fans are topping the charts at over 20,000 votes. This is over double to what the votes were at this time last year.
Award Ceremony will be Held on Thursday April 17, 2014 with LIVE Stream of the Red Carpet Arrivals Beginning at 7:00 PM PST
Nominees for the 2nd Annual RealityWanted TV Awards were announced last week in Los Angeles and the executives from the awards and the new public relations firm have worked together to incorporate a much more visible presence on social media this year. Votes are being submitted from all over the United States and as far away as the UK and Australia.
The most significant difference however is the involvement of the stars themselves in getting fans to vote. Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms sent a Tweet out to her fans Thursday acknowledging her four nominations and within minutes fans of the Lifetime Channel show were flooding the online voting system and “Re-Tweeting” Miller’s original post..
Deadliest Catch brothers, Edgar and Sig Hansen have been very vocal on their social media pages since the nominations were announced because the brothers are nominated for Best Reality Duo. On Friday morning Deadliest Catch fans sent out a Tweet to remind other fans to vote followed with “DON’T LET SNOOKI WIN”. The crab fishermen from the Discovery Channel’s hit show are up against Reality TV icons, Nicole Polizzi and Jenni Farley better known as Snooki & JWOWW from their self titled Jersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWOWW
Sixty5 Media, the award show’s public relations firm, is managing the award show’s social media accounts and after seeing the Tweet, immediately initiated a #FanWarFriday promo creating a challenge between both groups to see which set of fans would submit the most votes. Between the four Reality TV stars and their respective show pages, they have close to twenty million followers combined. That is a reach greater than CNN and MSNBC combined.
“It is amazing what has been accomplished in a year”, stated award show Executive Producers, Andrew Ward and Kristen Moss. Both agree that the fan following has been amazing and the participation of the nominees is humbling. “The reality stars and fans have truly adapted the RealityWanted TV Awards as their signature award show”, stated Ward.
“We have a new PR firm, an amazing behind-the-scenes team who has produced promotional videos every weekend leading up to the awards. Everyone has been working around the clock. Kristen and I couldn’t be more proud.” Concluded Ward
Final voting will conclude on April 5th, 2014. Results will be tallied and sealed until the envelopes are opened at the 2nd Annual RealityWanted TV Awards ceremony on April 17, 2014.
