Chatsworth, Calif. — Blond bombshell Nicole Aniston has been selected as the second trophy girl for the 2012 AVN Awards taking place January 21 at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Qualified media interested in obtaining credentials for the AVN Awards red carpet may email redcarpet@avnawards.com.

Aniston joins previously announced trophy girl Brett Rossi. She replaces Sabrina Maree, who could not fulfill her obligation.

“I feel privileged to be included in the AVN Awards show and will be interested to see the turnout during my first walk down the carpet,” Aniston said. “Hopefully I’ll fulfill my duties up to par and gain a little additional recognition in the process. Should be great to be in the middle of all the action and see a lot of the interworking behind the scenes. Congrats in advance to all the 2012 winners!”

The ceremonial trophy girls serve as a highly visible and prestigious assignment for rising stars within the industry. The duo is on stage for the duration of the awards show and featured prominently on the show’s cable broadcast.

Aniston’s adult entertainment career has been white hot lately. A dead ringer for a young Jenna Jameson, Aniston has made quite a splash in her brief career in front of the camera. The 24-year-old California native has starred in titles from Elegant Angel, Vivid Entertainment, New Sensations, 3rd Degree, Brazzers, Hustler Video, Evil Angel and Adam & Eve.
