Executive producer Mike Fleiss will be honored with the Reality Rocks Humanitarian Award on Saturday, April 9 at the first annual Reality Rocks Expo. Jack Osbourne will present him with the award, which honors a person who both makes significant contributions to the reality television genre and strives to better society through humanitarian endeavors.
Fleiss is the founder of Next Entertainment, and has created and executive produced such shows as ‘The Bachelor,’ ‘The Bacheloreete’ and ‘Bachelor Pad.’ He will also be rewarded for his work with “Bachelor Gives Back,” which supports nonprofit organizations around the world. Osbourne will present the award, as Fleiss recently co-directed the documentary ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,’ which is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 24.
More reality stars, including cast members from ‘The Bachelor,’ ‘The Bachelorette’ and ‘Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew,’ have been added to the list of personalities who will appear at the expo. They will appear alongside the event’s already announced stars, including Nick Cannon, Adrianne Curry, Audrina Patridge and previous personalities from such shows as ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ ‘The Real World,’ ‘Survivor’ and ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’
The expo, which is being held April 9-10, 2011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will feature previews of new reality shows, meet & greets with the stars and panel discussions. A complete list of scheduled events and tickets are available on the official Reality Rocks Expo website, realityrocks.net.
