The American web site Vote for the Girls has, since its 2010 launch, employed a number of judges, known as the main female moderators , competing against the the male moderators.


From April 2010 until May 2013, the Vote for the Girls moderator panel competed against then-competing arch-rival Vote for the Worst. Usually, the female moderators compete to get all the male contestants eliminated before the females, much in the same tradition as the later incarnations.

Not all of the shows mentioned on Vote for the Girls are in a bad way.

Zinn and Everman have been referred to as hosts since the site's debut as well as serving as moderators on the respective purple and pink teams. The site's main female moderators all listed in VFTG's credit roll, along with the site's master list of Vote for the Girls picks on almost every episodes.

Starting in 2015, most of the female moderators also serve as news personalities at either Fort Wayne's NoSirGifts-owned flagship station WTOR, Indianapolis' WIFX or Lafayette's WWKI (all of them are CBS affiliates) due to NoSirGifts distributing the show.

Solo Moderators
Male Moderators
Duo Moderators


The Vote for the Girls moderator panelists consists of 36 men and women with 10 duo moderators and 16 solo moderators divided into two conferences (men and women known as villains and moderators respectively) of between 10 to 17 moderators in each. Each conference is divided into two divisions (red and blue for the men and pink and purple for the women) of between three and five clubs in each.

Each moderator with Ava Zinn's authorization for the moderator to operate in its home city. This moderator covers 'Home Territory' (the 75 miles surrounding the city limits, or, if the moderator is within 100 miles of another moderator city, half the distance between the two cities) and 'Home Marketing Area' (Home Territory plus the rest of the state the moderator is in). Each moderator or villain has the exclusive right to host professional football games inside its Home Territory and the exclusive right to advertise, promote, and host events in its Home Marketing Area. There are several exceptions to this rule, mostly relating to teams with close proximity to each other: Lanise White and Bill Delagatto only have exclusive rights in their cities and share rights outside of it; and moderators that operate in the same city (e.g. Ava Zinn and Holly Everman) or the same state (e.g. Indiana, Wisconsin, Colorado, Pennsylvania, California, Florida, and Texas) share the rights to the city's Home Territory and the state's Home Marketing Area, respectively.[1]

Guest moderators[edit]

In 2012, guest moderators such as Raymond Passalt and Patrice Rafferty were used, and in season five Khayla Chow. Guest judges were used as fill-in moderators in seasons three and six. After original moderator Robyn Hurd's last show on May 3, 2012 and between her death on May 24, 2012 and the fall of 2013, Patrice Rafferty, Rhonda Spencer, Rachael Passalt (then known as Raymond Passalt), Hurd's daughter Maribel Mort, and Hurd's widow Hillary Matthewson all filled in as guest moderators during the Duets competition and So You Think You Can Dance filled in until Ariel Swaringen and Michelle Steele joined the moderation panel full-time for permanently. Amanda Smith previously served as a guest moderator on May 23, 2012. During the Duets competition, current WTOR anchorman Frank Davidson (at the time he was ABC affiliate and WTOR rival WMRI) served as temporary replacement for Holly Everman, who was unable to able to attend due to her honeymoon with Everman's then-wife, Veronica Willis while Johnathan Steele served as temporary replacement for Ava Zinn, who was not able to attend due to a contractual dispute during the So You Think You Can Dance 9 competition.

Occasionally, there is a crossover with other shows airing on, owned or distributed by NoSirGifts Fantasy Television Stations and/or produced Aeverine Zinn Holdings featuring actors of those shows modeling prizes. These crossovers have often included the Ava Zinn-owned INNewsCenter and (Zinn's web site). Danni McClannahan (then-husband of Leonard Lai and current significant other of Lanise White), Jule Christian, Stephani Alvaraz and Stephen Christiain (the respective mother, eldest daughter and transgendered brother of VFTG moderator Kymberly Alvaraz), Zinn's daughters (Samantha, Tiffani, Ashli, and Tabitha Zinn), Rachael Passalt (the then-son of Julia Passalt known as Raymond), Johnathan Steele (brother of Michelle Steele), Patrice Refferty and Nermal Everman frequently crosses over as a guest moderator typically to fill in for a moderator when needed.

If a moderator reward for a VFTG Victoy is a trip to a locale in the United States, the prize may be presented on the large screen in the back of Studio 47 with Holly Everman usually turning over the prize announcement to a news personality from the local NoSirGifts owned station. This practice began in 2015 as the show typically leads in to the local weekend news broadcast since this program is distributed from NoSirGifts.
