After four years of hosting 1 Girl 5 Gays, host Aliya-Jasmine Sovani has decided to step down and a new “1 Girl” has just been announced. Aliya-Jasmine just made the following big announcement:
“Hey everyone, I have very exciting news and it’s finally official so I’m stoked to share it with all of you. After four amazing years of hosting 1G5G on MTV and Logo, and meeting some of my best friends, hearing some of the craziest stories, being totally embarrassed on TV, laughing more than I have ever laughed, and crying more than I ever thought I would on TV, most of all being welcomed into a community that I will always stand by and stand up for. I am finally ready to pass on the torch as the “One Girl.” I’m really excited, I’m working on a passion project for MTV that I’m gonna be hosting and producing on and I’m really excited to fill you all in on that, it’s coming very very soon.
But in the meantime, from myself and the producers of 1G5G, the amazing crew behind the scenes, and all of my boys, do not miss the next three weeks as we countdown to my goodbye show and announce the brand new host of 1 Girl 5 Gays. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter @aliyajasmine and let me know what you think. I’ll always be there sending you lots of love. And from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for supporting our little Canadian show that made a loud North American statement, and told the world that no matter what you are in terms of race or gender, religion, ethnicity or sexual preference, the truth of humanity is that love is love is love. And remember to ask yourself, ‘Who’d you rather?’”
The new host of 1G5G is Lauren Collins. You might remember the 26-year old Canadian actress from her role as Paige Michalchuk on Degrassi: The Next Generation.
