MONTREAL—Magdalene St. Michaels and Giovanni Francesco have been crowned the 2013 Mile High Madness champions. The duo narrowly edged out Lily Cade and Nina Hartley in Mile High Media’s social media tournament after thousands of votes were counted.
Mile High Madness originally consisted of a field of 64 porn star pairings selected from fan submissions and divided into four regions named after Mile High Media’s studios.
On March 25, the Final Foreplay round began with four pairings representing four Mile High Media studios: Lily Cade and Nina Hartley (Sweetheart Video Region), Natasha Starr and Sean Michaels (Reality Junkies Region), Angell Summers and Keni Styles (Sweet Sinema Region), and Magdalene St. Michaels and Giovanni Francesco (Sweet Sinner Region).
Votes were cast through Twitter, Facebook and email. While every couple in the Final Foreplay round were guaranteed to shoot a scene for Mile High Media in the coming year, only two pairs could move on.
Advancing to face each other on April 5 were Lily Cade/Nina Hartley and Magdalene St. Michaels/Giovanni Francesco. After tallying up the votes cast on Facebook and through emails, Hartley and Cade were narrowly ahead by 30 votes. However, St. Michaels and Francesco took the majority of the Twitter votes, thus securing the championship.
“I am ecstatic with the overall results for Mile High Madness this year,” Mile High Media Vice President Jon Blitt said. “More than twice as many votes were cast throughout the tournament, with a thrilling number for our championship round. Congratulations to Magdalene and Giovanni. I know fans are extremely excited to watch the scene they film for Sweet Sinner.”
In addition to each of the Final Foreplay scenes being filmed for a future Mile High Media movie, the submitters responsible for the pairings will receive a DVD copy of the movie with their pair. They will also receive a six-month membership to the Mile High Media pay site for their winning region. Twitter user @LindsayHudson32 will receive six-month memberships to all four pay studio pay sites for selecting the championship pair.
