The full five hour event was captured using 12 cameras and a studio TriCaster which were set up in multiple locations inside the venue and streamed exclusively on Peeks from the @CITV user account. Viewers were given an access-all-areas pass, watching interviews of attendees including Mario Lopez, Sommer Ray, Kennedy Summers, Sarah Stage, Chantel Jeffries and Emily Sears and performances by Warner Bros. Records artist Dylan Gardner. The event picked up the interest of media conglomerates Maxim, TMZ, Viva Glam Magazine, Playboy Radio, and others.
