History

Bob Bain and Michael Burg came together to produce an award show for a young demographic, somewhat older to that of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards but similar to that of MTV. The format of the show has remained the same, awarding the achievements of those in the entertainment and athletic industries with non-traditional categories fixed into the ceremony. For example, in 2007, Verizon's VCast was a big digital advancement, that the "Choice VCast Video" category was added to the repertoire.

Ballots are usually found in teen oriented magazines, where readers were to purchase and tear out their ballot. Votes may also be cast online through FOX.com, the official website for the Teen Choice Awards. Even though the show suggests it is based on viewers votes, the case is far from the truth. According to the credits, fans chose the top 4 finalists. Out of those four finalists, the winner is selected by "Teenasaurus Rox". Also, the ultimate choice and red carpet icon awards are determined by the producers of the show.[3]


Since the ceremony's inception, the show has given out lifesize surfboards to individual winners. They create a new original design every year.

PTC founder L.

The PTC also named the 2005[13] and 2006[14] awards ceremonies the "Worst Family TV Show of the Week" after their initial broadcasts on FOX.
