Chronology
2014

Vote for the Girls UK is a British web site devoted to voting for predominately female contestants. The second series of VFTGUK began on 26 September 2014 and concluded on 4 April 2015. Ava Zinn presented her second series of the web site. The moderator panel consisted of Nermal Everman, Kendra Ray, Rhonda Rhodes and Tracia Ward. Khayla Chow initially returned for her second series, but was fired on 18 September 2014 (Chow later died on 22 October 2014 after being fatally shot). Because of Rhodes' commitments to her American talk show (Your Debate, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) at the time, she only attended The Voice UK programmes and Britain's Got Talent. Rhodes is an experienced pilot and owns her own airplane.

On 4 November 2014, Ava Zinn initially called off the competition due to the level of conflict with the British public deciding not to support VFTG picks of Lola Sauders, Fleur East, Only the Young, and Lauren Platt on The X Factor's eleventh series and keeping said female contestants out of the bottom group, with viewers managed to upset the site, therefore making this the first time in the site's history competition was called before the competition ended. Unlike the American version on 18 April 2014 when Zinn announced she was auctioning off her virginity, Vote for the Girls USA moderators Lanise White and Kymberly Alvaraz filled in for Zinn due to Zinn launching Vote for the Girls Australia and a revival of American television news discussion site INNewsCenter.

This series is the first to have a make-up victory from Strictly Come Dancing following the elimination of Scott Mills and Joanne Clifton, but was not declared until Zinn added Mark Wright and Karen Hauer (in addition to her own picks of Pixie Lott & Trent Whiddon, eventual runner-up Frankie Bridge & Kevin Clifton, and eventual winner Caroline Flack and Pasha Kovalev) as well as an all-transgender female (as Zinn and Kendra Ray had picks remaining in the Strictly final. Another addition is the "Moderator's Veto," which is used before the X Factor series 11 final (or sooner) to veto a Vote for the Girls loss.

It is also the first series in the web site's history of which one moderator (Zinn) became undefeated as the winning moderator as four of her final picks either won or was saved via Moderators' Save.

This is the only series to feature Rhodes and Everman as a moderator as Rhodes died on 14 March 2015 and Everman died on 6 July 2015.

Changes from previous series[edit]

Many changes were introduced this series, from the format to the personnel of the site. Nermal Everman and Tracia Ward joined Ava Zinn as moderators following the departures of Ariel Swaringen (died 22 March 2014), Kathi Jameson (left to focus on the U.S. version), and Khayla Chow (sacked on 18 September 2014). The site was planning to add ITV's Rising Star upon the launch in March 2015 before the broadcaster announced in September it was a no go.

There was speculation that the site will add Britain's Got Talent as a make-up competition following the American version's decision to add America's Got Talent and the American version of So You Think You Can Dance during the summer months as make-up competitions. The site couldn't add the British version of So You Think You Can Dance due to that programme being axed in 2011.

In August 2014, it was confirmed that VFTG UK will indeed add Britain's Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing as a make-up competition following the American version's decision to add the respective American counterparts, America's Got Talent and Dancing with the Stars as make-up competitions.

In September 2014, Ava Zinn announced that the site's web shows' opening round (on Rising Star) and quarter-finals (battle rounds and Knockouts on The Voice UK and the six-seat bootcamp on The X factor) were axed with the eleventh series of The X Factor[1] Speaking on the change, she said "It [opening round and quarter-finals] was the one element of the site I wasn't happy with, and it looked too similar to what everybody else is doing."

These above changes all proved to be in place once the Strictly Come Dancing 12 result shows began airing but were also accompanied by a number of other format tweaks. These additional changes most notably include the fact that the season will crown two victories in the event should a female win (typically a female winning the competition and a previous VFTG pick, or if two females (two VFTG picks) are in the final two, then they are declared co-champions).

Moderator's Save[edit]

Another change in the VFTG UK format is the Moderator's Save, an element first used in Italy's Vota Femminili (Vote for the Girls (Italy)) and Rösta för Flickorna (Vote for the Girls (Sweden))[2] that has been used in other adaptations of VFTG. The moderators were given the power to exercise a veto on X Factor and The Voice UK and one during the make-up competition and spare the site from a Vote for the Girls Loss for that particular competition. This can only be invoked up until the semi-finals of The Voice UK and/or X Factor or before the Britain's Got Talent or Strictly Come Dancing final. If the Moderators' Veto is used in a make-up competition, the moderators will not get to choose any Vote for the Girls wild card picks on The Voice and/or X Factor because no victory nor loss is declared. The Moderator's Veto can only be used twice per series (an additional Veto can be used in the make-up competition) and it must be unanimous. The new format change was revealed on 23 November 2014. The first recipients of the Moderators' Save were Fleur East on X Factor when it was announced she was runner-up on 14 December 2014, which allowed the site to declare its second consecutive X Factor victory and Lucy O'Byrne on The Voice UK pending the final outcome.

Moderators, presenters and other personnel[edit]

On 22 March 2014, Ariel Swaringen, who was a moderator on VFTGUK moderator panel from its inception in the first series, died from natural causes.[3] [4] On 7 April 2014, Kathi Jameson announced that she would be leaving VFTGUK after one series, with a statement saying, "After some long ... hard ... thoughts ... I didn't feel like Vote for the Girls UK was the right fit for me." However the reports suggest that Jameson was sacked by the VFTG UK webmaster Ava ZInn. Jameson has indicated that her troubles with her transition from male to female was the primary reason she signed up to do Vote for the Girls UK, yet had stated that she would remain on the American version (and later sacked on 18 September 2014). On 23 June, Tracia Ward announced on during an interview with Fiona Johnson confirming she would be joining the moderator panel (in addition to the U.S. version).

On 11 July, Vote for the Girls USA moderator Holly Everman on her Facebook that her niece, Nermal Everman, was confirmed as a moderator. Nermal had inherited the moderator role that her father, Michelle Steele, held from the American counterpart. However, she was dismissed from the American version of VFTG due to Aeverine Zinn Holdings' (owner of Vote for the Girls franchise) strict family contractual restrictions disallowing immediate and extended family members serving as moderators to protect the Vote for the Girls' ratings and revenue; in the case of Nermal Everman, she is the niece of current VFTG USA co-host Holly Everman and daughter of former VFTG USA moderator Michelle Steele, and Nermal's auntie Holly has been with the American version since its debut in April 2010. Nermal Everman could serve as moderator on the American version, but only off-camera, including making frontrunner picks, except for common primary picks not claimed by Holly Everman, so Nermal's mother, Elisa Steele (and the sister of Holly Everman) approached Ava Zinn about allowing Nermal to become a moderator of Vote for the Girls UK as a birthday present for Nermal after she chose to resign from the American version completely. As mentioned above, Nermal Everman is the niece of of VFTG USA co-host Holly Everman, which would have come in handy had Holly Everman resign from the American version. This issue has also affected many other members of the same immediate family that have worked with Ava Zinn over the years, Nermal Everman was officially dismissed from the American version in August 2014.


Ava Zinn confirmed her return for her second series as presenter of the main site after initially posting on her Twitter on 14 April 2014, that a second series of VFTG UK would be postponed until as late as August 2015 as a result of Chow's actions after the first ever loss on the site and subsequent physical clash with Holly Everman on the U.S. version. Zinn later retracted her post and announced that a second series will begin in August 2014. Chow was eventually sacked on 18 September 2014 and two new moderators, American news presenters Kendra Ray and Rhonda Rhodes, both transwomen, joined the moderator panel to replace Chow. Ray and Rhodes were officially introduced on 4 October 2014.

Britain's Got Talent[edit]

The web site was planning to participate in the Britain's Got Talent make up competition, but due to Ava Zinn being the winning moderator of the series (with her Strictly Come Dancing picks Caroline Flack and Frankie Bridge respectively the winner and runner-up and her final picks of Fleur East named runner-up on X Factor and Lucy O'Byrne of The Voice UK), the moderators did not participate in the ninth series of Britain's Got Talent.

Guest Moderators[edit]

Several changes were planned for the second series. Ava Zinn was considering adding a fifth and sixth moderator and two guest moderators invited by Zinn to participate during the competition, this is the first series where guest moderators were invited to participate in the live shows of the competition following Khayla Chow's sacking on 18 September 2014, Ava Zinn filled the vacancy seats by a guest moderator invited by Zinn to participate during the competition (usually as part of a crossover with the American version of Vote for the Girls). The guest moderators featured were:

Date Show Guest moderator(s)
27 September 2014 (2014-09-27) Strictly Come Dancing Final 15 Result Kellie Rock

29 March 2015 (2015-03-29) The Voice UK 4 Semi-Final
Notes
  1. ^ After Chow's sacking 18 September, Vote for the Girls USA moderators Julia Passalt and Kellie Rock filled in as guest moderators until Kendra Ray and Rhonda Rhodes became permanent moderators to replace Khayla Chow.
  2. ^ Kendra Ray and Nermal Everman were unable to attend the result and Ava Zinn was only available via pre-recorded clips following an incident that occurred on the American version on 21 October 2014. So Stephani Alvaraz filled in as Ava Zinn's co-host and filled in guest moderator for Kendra Ray while Rachael Passalt filled in for Kendra Ray.
  3. ^ After Rhonda Rhodes' death on 14 March, Vote for the Girls USA suspended moderator Lanise White filled in as guest moderators for the remainder of the series.
  4. ^ Ava Zinn was unable to present The Voice UK 4 shows after her arrest on 12 March 2015 so Zinn's partner, Kymberly Alvaraz filled in as host for the remainder of the series.

Notes
  1. Because Zinn chose Frankie Bridge and Kevin Clifton, the moderators could not choose Scott Mills and Joanne Clifton nor Mark Wright and Karen Hauer as a moderator's pick due to strict family contractual restrictions imposed by Aeverine Zinn Holdings, owner of the Vote for the Girls franchise, disallowing immediate family members serving as moderators to protect the Vote for the Girls' ratings and revenue; in the case of the aforementioned pick, Joanne Clifton is the sister of Kevin Clifton and Karen Hauer is the soon-to-be wife of Kevin Clifton. However, in week 9, Zinn added a fourth Strictly Come Dancing pick -- Mark Wright and Karen Hauer, giving the site's a guaranteed victory since all the moderators have picks still in the competition. It has happened on the American version's fourth series in 2013.
  2. During week 6 of Strictly Come Dancing, there was no moderator eliminated and it was not announced if either of Tracia Ward's picks of Steve Backshall & Ola Jordan or Alison Hammond & Aljaž Skorjanec, the latter of which was saved last and no one chose Scott Mills & Joanne Clifton (the couple that got eliminated) on 2 November 2014.
  • Pixie Lott and Trent Whiddon were not initially chosen as a VFTG pick, but was declared a VFTG pick after Zinn decided she had made a mistake in not including Pixie Lott, bringing the total number of VFTG picks to nine. Initially, this meant Zinn had three VFTG picks while Chow, Everman, and Ward had two. However, with Chow's termination on 18 September, both of Chow's picks (Sunetra & Brendan and Alison & Aljaz) were voided Everman and Ward got an additional pick.
  • With the elimination of Sunetra Sarker and Brendan Cole in Week 10, Nermal Everman no longer have any remaining picks on her team.
  • With the elimination of Jake Wood and Janette Manrara in Week 12, Tracia Ward no longer have any remaining picks on her team. Additionally, the elimination resulted in an all-transgender female final, as Zinn describes "the year of the transwomen" as it marked the first time in web site's history of which two transgender females went head to head as moderators in the final.

The Voice UK (series 4)[edit]

REWARD FOR SUCCESS: As the winning moderator, Ava Zinn decided not to participate in the ninth series of Britain's Got Talent (had the Moderator Panel not been unanimous in using their Moderators' Save on two occasions).

PUNISHMENT FOR FAILURE: Kendra Ray, Tracia Ward, and Nermal Everman will also be participating in the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Controversy[edit]

Moderators' actions[edit]

Controversy was caused when Zinn refused to pick Fleur East and Blonde Electra upon seeing Cheryl Cole chose not to send contestant Lola Saunders through to the live shows. Saunders was considered an early favourite to win and many viewers (along with Zinn) were angry that Saunders was initially not put through to the live shows, but Zinn later changed her mind.

A spokesperson for Vote for the Girls explained: "A moderator can abstain from picking a frontrunner. [Zinn] made it clear that she would not participate and therefore abstained from choosing picks." Fans responded after the site's Twitter page showed Zinn (upon seeing that Saunders was brought back on X Factor), saw Zinn flipping her middle finger. In addition to the media outrage at Zinn's decision to abstain from making picks, there were verbal assaults and Ward also threw water over Zinn and Everman.

However, a Telly poll showed that 73% of them wanted either Zinn to be sacked for refusing to pick a frontrunner or axe Vote for the Girls UK.

Brawl on 2 November 2014[edit]

Upon seeing Lola Saunders was not saved, Tracia Ward stormed over to Lanise White and aggressively walked over the top of her, resulting in White pulling Ward down with her. White threw a punch at Ward before being tackled by Rhonda Rhodes as moderators from the USA and Australian adaptations quickly intervened. Production stopped at that point and the actions were too severe to continue production.

Zinn announced that the competition for The X Factor was called. Unlike the a similar incident between Khayla Chow and Holly Everman on the American Version, Lanise White filled in for Zinn for the remainder of the X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing.
