HOLLYWOOD — The winner of Wicked Pictures' Spend a Night Out With The Wicked Girls contest enjoyed an evening, with a good buddy in tow, at Lucky Strike bowling alley Friday with Wicked stars jessica drake, Mikayla Mendez and Alektra Blue.
"I know how to pick 'em, huh?" Javier, the buddy, said of winner Gabriel, both of whom were escorted in a limo to and from the posh Hollywood spot with all three girls.
Gabriel was randomly selected as the contest winner from those who joined the studio's during a Valentine's Day promotion last month.
"I've never won a raffle or anything before, so something like this just caught me totally off guard," Gabriel told AVN.
A San Diego student and seasonal worker with the Chargers, Gabriel said he learned of the contest after attending this year's AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas. He listed Fallen and Se7en Deadly Sins as two of his favorite recent Wicked productions.
Gabriel wagered a bet with Alektra Blue before the bowling began that if he was able to beat her in two out of three rounds, she'd go topless for the limo ride home. He won the bet. (He'd have had to shell out $5 had he lost.)
The bowling night promo was the first public outing for AVN Best Actress winner drake since she during AEE.
"It doesn't seem to be affecting my game very much," she said. "I seem to be sucking regardless!"
Fresh out of her cast, drake is headed to Texas for a feature dance gig.
"I leave next Wednesday, so every night I try on a pair of high-heeled shoes to try to see which ones are more comfortable," she said. "It still hurts a little bit, but I'm the type of girl that could probably get up on stage and not notice if I broke my arm. I can tell myself all I want I'm gonna take it easy on stage, but then I get a lot of adrenaline right before I go up, and I just go wild. So I'll be fine."
Summing up the experience of the evening, Gabriel said: "My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, everybody's been saying, 'Your 25th year is going to be the best year,' and shit, my 25th year started off with a bang!"
