And it looks like HollywoodLife.com readers got their wish! 67% of you wanted to see him host the awards, scheduled for June 9. In a statement, Aziz said, “I’m so happy Ronnie from ‘Jersey Shore’ was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way.” Ha!
MTV general manager Stephan Friedman praised the comedian, saying “Our audience fell in love with Aziz on Human Giant.
