Two-Hour Event Premieres Wednesday, June 13th at 10 PM, ET/PT

NEW YORK, April 5 -- Spike TV is giving the biggest shout-
outs in television history to the things guys love most with the first
annual GUYS CHOICE. In what is sure to be the signature event for the
channel, Spike TV is relying on its millions of viewers to pick who to bow
down to from the worlds of sports, music, film, TV, and the internet.
Honors like BEST A**-KICKER, BALLSIEST BAND, HOTTEST GIRL ON THE
PLANET, FUNNIEST M.F., LUCKIEST BASTARD, MOST VIRAL VIDEO, MOST DANGEROUS
MAN and THE BRASS BALLS (legendary action hero) AWARD will make this
non-traditional awards show a one-of-a-kind cacophony of manly pursuits.
This star-studded event will feature everything guys want, including a
bevy of unbelievably foxy trophy girls. Also, for the first time in awards
show history, Spike TV will narrow the field for all awards to only two
nominees, so it can be settled like men: 'mano a mano.' The two-hour event
is scheduled to tape on June 9 at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles. Spike
TV's GUYS CHOICE will premiere on Wednesday, June 13 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT.
In addition to honoring the sexiest women and coolest guys from the
past year, GUYS CHOICE will also feature unforgettable tributes to
legendary entertainers, rockers, and babes, as well as edgy stand-up comedy
and truly house-shaking musical performances.
Voting for this year's nominees on http://www.spiketv.com starts
Tuesday, May 1 and runs through Friday, June 1. Also online, fans can log
