Teen Choice Awards Rigged?!? Find Out How The Winners Are Really Determined!

| Filed under: TV NewsAwardzTeen Choice Awards

On an evening that is supposed to give teens their say, it turns out young voters had almost NO part in picking the winners at last night's Teen Choice Awards!


The producers of the annual award ceremony can't hide behind their surfboards any longer! Our investigative team has uncovered some little known details about just how the winners are determined!

Check out the fine print on the Teen Choice Awards' web site. It describes how producers actually hand-pick whom they want from the list of nominees! The rules for voting states:

"Winners for the Teen Choice Awards are determined using the votes cast on the Site. Votes are tabulated electronically and winners are determined based on the nominees in each category with the highest number of eligible votes. Teenasaurus Rox reserves the right to choose the winner from the top four vote generators."

They also flashed this disclaimer for a hot second during last night's telecast:

So fans aren't actually picking the winners at all! From what we can tell, it boils down to who the producers can get to be there and who they can't!

The celebs that show up get their surfboards, and the stars who can't make it, regardless of how many votes they garner, get nothing!

Wowee zowee! We guess voter fraud actually is a serious problem in this country!

OK, but regardless of the fraud, last night's show was AH-Mazing! Lea Michele's acceptance speech alone was just incredible! So, maybe that is the point? To put on the best show possible?

Still, we have to say, this both shocks and disappoints us! And it also makes us wonder about other award shows where all of the winners just HAPPEN to be there.

Are YOU upset by the voting system for the Teen Choice Awards???

    I understand glee winning because of Cory's death but chord overstreet winning even though he was one of the most hated characters made me mad. Now I understand why.

    Perez, you finally came onto something not fabricated. "Top 4"?? Most categories only have 5 nominees! This is like the NHL in the 1980s when 4 of the 5 teams made the playoffs.
    I wish Teen Choice would show the raw vote counts just like Billboards.

    Actually, most "choice award" shows are like this. That is why in the earlier "Peoples choice awards" Justin Bieber won all four awards that he was in running for, but since he didnt show, they automatically were given to whoever they seemed fit. I'm really not surprised at all

    I also caught that after watching it, too. I knew it made no sense for Miley Cyrus to win the Candie's award because she looks really gross in the outfits thanks to her hair. Lea Michele deserved that award, she made the clothes look cuter and nicer.

    No wonder Taylor Swift didnt win anything Anounced!

  13. Soph says – reply to this


    The only person I thought deserved to win was Lea Michele
    I she should have won Candies award too not Miley!

    i think the ultimate choice they are referring in the last line is the one that ashton kutcher won last nyt..previous ultimate choice winners were JT, taylor swift and last year it was twilight… just saying…

  15. lc says – reply to this

    Re: tie – They are all fake. So what?

  18. DK says – reply to this


    NEWSFLASH: This applies to pretty much every audience choice awards show ever. Nothing new.

    Fake music too. When it gets bad enough people will check out the real alternative to what rock/rap/country/pop have become called WOW or world open wide music. Corporate music is out for many of us.

    Thanks for reporting on this PH.
