2015 also marks the 10th anniversary of the first "Wild 'N Out" premiere in 2005. In order to celebrate the milestone, MTV2 today is launching #BestofWNO, a social voting competition across several platforms to determine fans' favorite moments from the first six seasons of the show. From April 30 through May 6, seven different categories will be voted on by fans: "Favorite All-Star" (showcased via GIFs on MTV2 Twitter); "Favorite Game" (showcased via video on MTV2 Instagram); "Favorite Wildstyle Moment" (showcased via video on MTV2 YouTube); "Favorite Wild 'N Out Girl" (showcased via photos on MTV2 Instagram); "Favorite Wild 'N Out Song" (showcased via video on MTV2 Tumblr); "Favorite Cast Member" (showcased via photos on "Wild 'N Out" Facebook); and "Wildest Moment" (showcased via video on MTV2 Vine). The winners of each competition will be featured on MTV2 in the days leading up to the season seven premiere.
"Wild 'N Out" is hosted by Nick Cannon, who is head of the highly successful multi-media company NCredible Entertainment, which produces a myriad of TV and film projects. In addition to "Wild 'N Out," Cannon also stars in NBC's "America's Got Talent" and BET's "Real Husbands of Hollywood."
MTV2 achieved its highest-rated quarter in its nearly 20-year history during Q1 of 2015, extending its streak of seven consecutive quarters of year over year growth. MTV2's first quarter success was driven by original hit series "Guy Code" and "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out," each of which was watched by more than 15 million viewers. Showing no signs of slowing down, the network kicked off Q2 with new improv comedy series "MTV2's Joking Off," which ranks as one of the top shows in its time period for Teens and Male Teens since its April 1 premiere.
"Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" is Executive Produced by Nick Cannon and Michael Goldman for NCredible Entertainment. Nile Evans serves as Show Runner and Executive Producer. Chris McCarthy, Paul Ricci and Candida Boyette-Clemons are Executive Producers for MTV2.
