With host James Deen in place since June, the only thing that remained to be seen regarding this year's XBIZ Awards was who was going to host the red carpet portion of the ceremony. Well wonder no more, as XBIZ (link below) has announced Stoya and Steven St. Croix as co-hosts for the opening segment of the January 15 event.
Both of these performers are past winners themselves, but this is their first hosting gig together.
“I was honored to be asked to host this year's XBIZ Awards red-carpet arrivals, and I look forward to experiencing just how dapper Mr. St. Croix is,” Stoya said.
St. Croix said the feeling is mutual.
“I'm thrilled as hell to be asked to host this year's red-carpet arrivals,” he said. “Just when I thought Ryan Seacrest was going to beat me out yet again for hosting duties, I can now breathe easier.”
With tongue in cheek, St. Croix added, “Stoya is beautiful and clever and a unique package wrapped up in porcelain skin. I only hope she doesn't file a restraining order against me because it'll be extremely hard to keep my paws off her. But I'm professional and have also built up a resistance to pepper spray, so it should be a fun night all around.”
“Stoya and Steven are glamour and class personified,” said Moe Helmy, executive producer of the XBIZ Awards. “We are beyond thrilled to have them host our international guests as they walk the red carpet on Jan. 15.”
