CHATSWORTH, Calif.—The tradition started with a bang in June of 2016, when AVN Media Network decided that it just wasn’t enough to shoot out a press release announcing the co-hosts for its upcoming 2017 AVN Awards Show. So instead, CEO Tony Rios brought Riley Reid and Aspen Rae to the AVN headquarters along with a few friends—a few hundred, that is—and threw a party. Everyone had so much fun, it became another AVN tradition.
AVN and event sponsor MyFreeCams.com kept the party rolling, bigger and better than ever this year. The catered affair had drinks flowing and phones blowing up with selfies as the cream of the industry partied into the night and celebrated the evening’s big reveal. After the crowd quieted down just enough to hear themselves think, Rios prepared to make the introductions.
“OK, we’re going to do this in NO particular order. This first person is a girl. She hails from the Midwest,” Rios said, describing a “nerdy girl” who played the clarinet. “But, perhaps her biggest claim to fame,” he said, was “being the cover girl of the January issue of our own CAMStar magazine. Please welcome to the stage, BAILEY RAYNE!”
Rios followed up with the other co-host, “also a girl.” Continuing in a jocular vein, Rios described “a former waitress, model and booth babe at ComicCon,” before wrapping it up with a big finish: “Around here we have come to know her as the Wonder Woman of porn—let’s hear it for ROMI RAIN.
Rain and Rayne—a dynamic duo, wet and wild indeed. The two will take the stage at the 2019 AVN Awards Show, presented by MyFreeCams.com, on January 26, 2016.
A true porn princess—after all, she was a natural as the Amazon royal in Justice League XXX: An Axel Braun Parody (Wicked Pictures)—Romi Rain has been in the adult entertainment business since 2012, and she’s been at the top of her game the entire time. Rain was born in Boston and moved to L.A. at age 18. After modeling for lingerie and bikini websites, she moved on to exotic dancing and took the last name of Rain. She made the jump to webcamming for Playboy Live, and in November of 2012 she signed with an agency and started shooting solos and girl/girl scenes. By February 2013 she started in earnest on boy/girl scenes, and has become known for her intense, energetic performances. Fans of the AVN Awards Show will remember her work in an engaging skit from last year’s broadcast of the event.
Bailey Rayne is an Indiana native who has built a passionate following on MyFreeCams with her laid-back demeanor and engaging cam shows. Rayne has had an eventful journey in the adult industry, going from unknown model to landing layouts for Playboy Plus, Penthouse and Hustler all while sharpening her business and social skills on MFC. She also helps other cam models produce their own content. At this year’s AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, Rayne was one of the MFC models chosen to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the event. And Rios wasn’t joking about the clarinet. According to Rayne, earning her music degree ranks at the top of her growing list of accomplishments. “It was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done and I’m so glad I saw it through,” she says.
The 2019 AVN Show is set for a triumphant return in January, when the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE) and the 36th annual AVN Awards Show take place at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
AEE dates are January 23-26, 2019, while ANE will be January 23-25, 2019. Those two events set the stage for the 36th annual AVN Awards Show, which will be Saturday, January 26, 2019, inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
