Jessica Drake, Kirsten Price Named Red Carpet Hosts for 2013 XBIZ Awards

LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce Jessica Drake and Kirsten Price as Official Red Carpet Hosts for the industry's awards event of the year, the 2013 XBIZ Awards, presented by Fleshlight, on Jan. 11 in Los Angeles.

Both performers are among the most popular stars working in the world of adult film today. Drake, an exclusive contract performer for Wicked Pictures, is one of the industry’s most accomplished actresses who also co-hosted the 2012 XBIZ Awards this past January.

Price, who was a Wicked exclusive for almost her entire career until early 2011, has become well-known not only for her sizzling performances but also as one of the top red-carpet hosts in the business.

Both girls said they were thrilled to be reunited for such a grand occasion and also to be part of the largest, most elaborate XBIZ Awards to date.

"I'm so excited to have been chosen to co-host the red carpet at the XBIZ Awards this year!” Drake said. “As one of the Awards Show hosts last year, I know first-hand all of the hard work that goes into making the show a raging success, and being able to bring that to the red carpet is a great opportunity. Kirsten is an energetic, enthusiastic, witty host herself and I love our chemistry. Big thanks to XBIZ for choosing me!"

Price remarked, “I'm so excited to be hosting the 2013 XBIZ red carpet show with Jessica Drake. It's such an honor to be one of the girls chosen to host this year. This is gonna be fun!”

Dan Miller, managing editor of XBIZ, said he couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s red carpet hosts.

“Jessica and Kirsten not only carry themselves with exceptional class and style, they also are two of the most beautiful and dynamic women in the world,” Miller said. “We think that with Jessica and Kirsten’s involvement, the 2013 XBIZ Awards Red Carpet will be the most glamorous and star-studded in the history of our event.”

Glitz, glamour and the biggest personalities in the world of adult entertainment have made the XBIZ Awards the most prestigious symbol of industry success. The annual event attracts A-list movers and shakers of the multibillion-dollar adult entertainment industry, generating buzz throughout the business and mainstream media. With an expanded list of more than 150 award categories, the 2013 XBIZ Awards show is set to feature the most expansive array of honors in the show’s history.

The gala will culminate an unprecedented series of six grand-slam industry events dubbed XBIZ 360°, which gets underway on Jan. 9 in L.A.
