[via press release from FOX]

TWO LUCKY TEENS WIN FOX'S "TEEN CHOICE 2006 CASTING CALL" CONTEST PRESENTED BY JCPENNEY

Winners from Illinois and Louisiana Set to Present at TEEN CHOICE 2006 Live Sunday, August 20, on FOX

FOX and JCPenney searched nationwide for a guy and a girl to be on stage and hand out the Surfboard trophies to winners at TEEN CHOICE 2006 airing live Sunday, Aug. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET Live/PT Tape-Delayed) on FOX. The two teenagers chosen as winners of the "Casting Call" contest are Erica Paczkowski, 15, of Plainfield, IL, and Kenny Ho, 15, of Baton Rouge, LA. Their special duties will include presenting trophies on-stage and escorting celebrity winners off-stage. Additionally, they will provide assistance backstage and attend the post-show party.

Paczkowski is a dedicated guitar player who takes her music seriously. Paczkowski looks forward to being a part of TEEN CHOICE 2006, which she thinks is the "greatest ceremony of the year," and potentially meeting Ashlee Simpson, whose "funky style" she admires.

Ho can usually be found wearing anything "comfortable with jeans" and thinks being a trophy presenter at TEEN CHOICE will be the "happiest moment" of his life.

Paczkowski and Ho will shine on-stage and off while sporting the hottest junior and young men's brands from JCPenney: Arizona and Miss Bisou.

For the "Casting Call" contest, 13- to 19-year-olds were asked to submit a color photo and answer questions explaining why they would make a good trophy presenter. After the month-long nationwide search that also included "Casting Call" booths in 20 cities across the country, the two presenters were selected.

America's sweetheart Jessica Simpson and comedian Dane Cook are teaming up to co-host the eighth annual edition of TEEN CHOICE, celebrating the hottest teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion. Nelly Furtado and Timbaland will perform their No. 1 hit single "Promiscuous," Rihanna is set to perform her summer hit "S.O.S." and, making his network television debut, Kevin Federline will perform his single "Lose Control." Additional celebrities scheduled to appear include Jessica Alba, Nick Lachey, Paula Abdul, Kristen Bell, Rachel Bilson, the cast of "High School Musical" and Snoop Dogg, among others.

TEEN CHOICE 2006 is executive-produced by Bob Bain ("Kids Choice Awards") and Mike Burg. Paul Flattery serves as producer. Greg Sills serves as supervising producer.
