Jessica Drake, Kayden Kross to Host XRCO Awards

CHATSWORTH, Calif. - The X-Rated Critics Organization has announced that Jessica Drake and Kayden Kross will co-host the 25th annual XRCO Awards on April 16 at The Highlands in Hollywood.

Drake, a Wicked Pictures contract girl and a previous XRCO winner, is honored to be hosting the silver anniversary show.

"The XRCO Awards have always been one of my favorite shows," she said. "Now that I've been chosen to be a host along with Kayden, I'm sure it will be a night to remember! This one's extra special, as it's the 25th anniversary of the show, and I'd like to personally thank Dirty Bob and Wicked for the opportunity to be a part of it!"

Kross, a exclusive performer for Adam & Eve, remarked, "I'm so excited to be hosting this year's XRCO Awards! It is an honor to have been chosen as hostess for such a well-respected and ever-growing event. I am really looking forward to seeing the best of the best of the adult industry on such a special night!"

XRCO's Dirty Bob is delighted with this year's hosting duo. "The co-hosts of the XRCO are hand-picked from the current crop of adult performers," Dirty Bob said. "The choice this year of Jessica Drake and Kayden Kross, both well-known contract girls, has us eagerly anticipating their on-stage chemistry. The ladies will be able to enjoy themselves in the more relaxed atmosphere that is this industry-only event. There is no doubt that those attending will appreciate these women as they take command of the stage."

Drake and Kross will be joined on stage by 2009 Heart-On Girls Amber Lynn Bach and XRCO Hall of Famer Amber Lynn. The beautiful blondes will be handing out the "Heart On" trophies that accompany an XRCO win.

"In keeping with the original spirit and intent of the XRCO, the Heart-On Girl (Trophy Girl) is traditionally someone relatively new to the business," Dirty Bob said. "Being the special 25th Anniversary XRCO Awards Show, we are going one step further with two - with a twist! One will be Amber Lynn who was the first Heart-On Girl 25 years ago. Gracing the stage with her as the other Trophy Girl will be Amber Lynn Bach - a busty and bubbly MILFish new girl in the business. It is also our hope that the similarities in their names will produce an amalgam of fun for the ladies and the evening's festivities."

The show is industry only and free. Visit for more information.
