Not only did Fall Out Boy’s fans vote for them to get a People’s Choice Award, they ended up being the ones to tell Pete Wentz that they won!
The bassist was in the middle of an internet after show for Best Ink, the tattoo reality TV series that he also hosts.
Suddenly, the fans who were in the chat session with him broke the news that FOB just won the PCA for Favorite Alternative Band!
Pete did NOT see it coming! He excitedly responded on-camera, saying:
"No way, really? Really? Really? Woohooo, baby! Pop some champagne!”
And even though he didn’t have an acceptance speech prepared, he still took a moment to say a sincere thank you to all of the fans who made the win possible!
"The people who voted on this award, this is your award. I’m going to smash up that award with a hammer and start mailing it out in pieces.”
