Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Last season's Big Brother winner Rachel E. Reilly and runner-up Porsche Briggs have joined Extra Host Maria Menounos's AfterBuzz TV Network, the largest online broadcast network on the worldwide web, to deliver a premiere “after-show” for CBS's hit show Big Brother Season 14. The duo hosted their 1st AfterBuzz TV show last week and within hours it became the top-rated Big Brother after-show on iTunes, receiving a rating of 5 stars out of 5. Menounos and AfterBuzz founder Keven Undergaro targeted Reilly and Briggs based on their popularity as well as their abilities to host. “The insight Rachel and Porsche bring to our Big Brother after-show is like nothing else produced. They're also amongst the top TV personalities out there and we're very lucky to have them,” said Undergaro.
Shows will stream live Friday mornings (11am PT) in order to capitalize on booking the most recent eliminated contestant. Shows will feature many of those eliminated from Big Brother as well as past participants. Last week's guest was 2006 Playmate of the Year, Kara Monaco, who was eliminated on Day 5 of the this season.
The pair joins an illustrious list of celebrities to host an AfterBuzz TV after-show such as former WWE Divas Melina Perez, Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson, Maria Kanellis and Lilian Garcia, former Real World castmates Lee Roy Garrett, Alex Govere, Frank Sweeney, Adam Royer and Nehamiah Clark, former Bachelor and Bachelor Pad contestant Krisily Kennedy and The Voice's Winter Rae. AfterBuzz TV currently garners 5 million listeners/viewers a week from over 75 countries and expects those numbers to grow by at least 50% in the upcoming fall season.
