Fans React Angrily to the Teen Choice Awards Being Rigged

If you kept the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on throughout the credits at the end of the show, you may have noticed the fine print that basically said the show was rigged. Check it out below:

  • Winners for the Teen Choice Awards are determined using the votes cast on Teenchoiceawards.com. 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 getters. The Olay Fresh Effects Breakout Star Award and Ultimate Choice Award were both chosen by Teenasaurus Rox.

Well, a bunch of fans noticed and were so angry that they started a hashtag on Twitter: #TeensDontHaveaChoiceAwards,

The news seemed to spread even further around online after a bunch of the talent nominated for the web awards, including Cameron Dallas and Matthew Espinosa, tweeted about it as well. All of them ended up deleting their tweets though.

Check out more backlash from the fans over on BusinessInsider.com.

    Ah, youth! Welcome to the real world, kids.

    This isn’t new, they’ve had that disclaimer for years at the end of the show. Teens are just too damn dumb and still end up voting every year and giving the website hits. Then they get offended when they learn their vote is pointless. LOL.

  • Gretchen

    None of them noticed til now that they basically give it to whoever is d-list enough to actually show up?

  • gilmore

    Lol it’s not like this is the Grammys, Emmys, or even the Oscars. They are mad about a completely POINTLESS award show ffs! An award show that hands out surfboards as a prize, pls winning anything from this isn’t going to further your faves career.

  • nfff

    It is not a real award show. I just assumed everyone knew that.

  • DUH

    How is this not obvious when people like IAN SOMERHALDER win? I mean this is probably like his Oscars.

  • Ken

    @sillyme: I couldn’t have said it better myself

  • Lydia

    Some kid lost “part of [his] week” voting…? Get a life, kid. Go outside and get some fresh air. The MTV/VMA/Nickelodeon/whatever awards are rigged in the same way.

  • vicki

    Really, you people are just realizing this?

  • Sasuke

    Duuh this is like every awards show nowadays. Just wait till the Emmys come this month….

  • allison

    @Lydia: Exactly. All these awards shows are about promotion. It’s why MTV has what 4 /5 award shows a year.

  • POOGOO

    Ah, that explains the Kardashian win. They just paid for it then.

  • Alaia

    lol at that loser who wasted a week voting for a completely superfluous award show.

  • lina

    I’ve read on some fan sites for vampire diaries that the older women lie about there age so they can vote for Ian. I just have this image of a bunch of middle aged women in front of there computer day after day voting over and over again. As for the Kartrashian’s come on everyone knows they would hire people to spend there days voting over and over again. Teen choice is like the peoples choice. Voting more than once makes it fake and when you here who’s going. That means they’re getting the fake trophy. Lol

  • chris

    these awards are so prestigious I am just blown away by this news….

  • cindy

    Of course there rigged just like MTV video awards VMA

  • niles

    Teens: your whole life is a lie. Welcome to the real world.

  • Marisa

    This kid needs a better hobby. It’s not a surprise that it is rigged. Ever notice how typically the winners are the only ones who show up. Besides, the kid that didn’t win has basically no talent whatsoever.

  • SHINE

    not news, same every year

    Why are these people angry at the made up award show?
