It's a great way for them to meet each other, and for the fans to meet them. It was a weekend chockfull of themed events and parties, and there was also a convention center event with a long table set up where the reality stars were seated alphabetically to meet and greet their fans.
If the event was held in Atlanta, I'd probably buy a ticket and go. I'm not someone looking to build my own profile in the reality blog community, but I would enjoy meeting all of these people and would probably come back with all sorts of juicy scoop.
Someone on Reddit said that Jace was a big draw at the convention center, creating a lot of excitement for the fans who saw him. He was also reported be very nice. I saw him tweeting over the weekend about being happy that he was included n the BB Comic PoV competition.
Here he is with Ian Terry and some sort of PoV medal.
There was an 80's themed party and it looks like Derrick met Michael Jackson. And Judd was there, too.
Victoria Rafaelli was at the event over the weekend, so I'm guessing she took this picture by the pool. Even if not, it is a beautiful shot and since she is a photographer, it can't be an accident.
The famous Boston Rob from Survivor apparently had a great time this weekend with Mike Holloway, winner of Survivor San Juan Del Sur. Rob actually lives in the Pensacola area, so the event was sort of close to home for him and many of the other event participants who live in Florida.
(Like Amanda, Victoria, Zach, Andrew Gordon, Jessie Godderz, etc.)
I love Boston Rob. He's my guy, but he doesn't know it.
Ian is still gripping Nicole in this picture (like the picture yesterday). You can't blame a guy for trying, can you? There are two guys in here who must be from The Amazing Race, posing with Deena from Jersey Shore and a Minion.
And our own Jeff Weldon says this girl is his "future wife". She is from one of the classic seasons of Survivor but I don't remember much about her game, unfortunately.
(So she must not have been on a Boston Rob season...)
I do love Elissa's Minnie Mouse costume.
I think they took this picture at Gatorland. No way in hell would I touch that nasty snake. But I would touch Cody, which makes me pretty basic, I guess. That girl on the far right is from MTV, I think. I'll bet she would touch Cody, too.
Who wouldn't want to be a fly on the wall here, right?
A guy on Reddit who attended the event said Audrey was the prettiest girl there.
So take that, haters.
