AVN Enlists Jane, Kross, Navarro to Host 2012 Awards Show Red Carpet

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Media Network has tapped adult superstars Jesse Jane and Kayden Kross, as well as rock legend Dave Navarro, to host the Red Carpet for the 2012 AVN Awards Show. The prolific trio previously hosted the carpet together in 2011.

A fourth Red Carpet host will be announced at a later date. The only detail revealed is that the host will be a fresh, new face on the scene.

The AVN Awards’ Red Carpet is the fast-paced, star-studded precursor to the industry’s most prestigious and glamorous awards show. The event takes place Jan. 21, 2012 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Joint is a sleek and upscale, 4,000-seat showroom with a reputation as one of the most sophisticated and authentic venues in Las Vegas.

2012 marks Dave Navarro’s sixth straight year, Jesse Jane’s third straight year, and Kayden Kross’ second straight year hosting the AVN Awards Show Red Carpet. Each has also been the recipient of coveted AVN awards acknowledging their excellence in the industry.

“For me, the holiday season isn't officially over until the AVN Award Show has happened,” Navarro, the guitarist for Jane’s Addiction, said. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off 2012 than a gathering in Las Vegas with some of my close, intimate friends to celebrate the adult industry.”

Navarro continues, “Co-hosting the Red Carpet at the AVN Awards has become somewhat of a personal tradition, and I am looking forward to catching up on all the latest news from the variety of talent.”

Jesse Jane exclaims, “I'm so excited to host the AVN Award Show Red Carpet again. I love being a part of the insanity, and every year it gets better and crazier! It's an honor to be on the red carpet all night. I love being a reporter and correspondent because I love interviewing everyone when they are all dressed up and seeing how excited or nervous they are for the show. Thank you AVN for making this a dream come true, year after year—love you guys!”

Kayden Kross said, “Thank you AVN for allowing me another opportunity to do what I love most: improvise! Hosting the Red Carpet with Dave and Jesse again will be a blast—we might even have a few tricks up our sleeve.”

AVN Media recently announced the 2012 award show hosts: adult superstars Bree Olson and Sunny Leone, along with comedian Dave Attell.
