Month Day Event LINK
January 1 Ava Zinn began an over-the-air/Internet stream (via AT&T U-Verse) hybrid as a television provider
(replacing Bright House), the Indianapolis stations (except WNDY and newscasts on WISH, WXIN and WTHR) were replaced by
out-of-market (and out-of-state) affiliates of the corresponding networks, including stations in Chicago (WBBM-CBS, WLS-ABC, WGN-CW, WMAQ-NBC, and WFLD-Fox), Miami (WPLG-ABC and WSVN-Fox), Tampa (WTVT-Fox and WTSP-CBS), New York (WCBS-CBS and WNYW-Fox), Chattanooga (WDSI-Fox), Harrisburg/York (WPMT-Fox, WGAL-NBC, WHTM-ABC), and Dayton (WRGT-Fox).  The substitution began on July 15, 2012 and continued in 2014.
March 1 Following the eliminations of American Idol favorites Marrielle Sellars and Jillian Jensen, Zinn goes on a meat strike (essentially going vegetarian) for an undetermined amount of time. It is later revealed in a  Twitter post on March 28 the meat strike will last for the rest of the year, and will last until January 3, 2015. The meat strike ended on December 25, 2014.
15 Vote for the Girls UK broadcasts the final Ariel Swaringen appearance before her death 1 week later.
18 and 20 The final episode of the original US version of Vote for the Girls with Ariel Swaringen as moderator. Swaringen had died on March 22; the remainder of the fifth season of Vote for the Girls USA were shown broadcast as an “in memoriam” tribute to her from March 25 to the season finale.
April 5 Vote for the Girls UK gets its first loss on The Voice UK series 3.
10 Five days after Jermain Jackman won The Voice UK series 3 and upon seeing that Malaya Watson had the lowest number of votes on American Idol, Holly Everman is shoved to the floor when a fight begins on the Vote for the Girls set between moderators of Vote for the Girls US and Vote for the Girls UK. The fight originated between Holly Everman and Khayla Chow, after Everman called Chow a bi-black bimbo.
18 Ava Zinn announced on her YouTube channel after learning Jessica Meuse landed in the bottom two that she followed through on her threat to auction her virginity as a male. It was announced on November 29 that 47 year old Kymberly Alvaraz, originally from Denver, Colorado had been the winning bidder.
29 Upon seeing that Bria Kelly was not saved on the sixth season of The Voice of America of which criticized the moderators for not including Indianapolis native Josh Kaufman as a Vote for the Girls pick because the site’s operations are in the state of Indiana, yet supported Alisha Bernhardt and Marrielle Sellars on American Idol 11 and 13, respectively. Kellie Rock stormed out muttering “this is a f—ing joke” while confrontation between Maribel Mort and Veronica Willis (in which Mort referring to either Willis or Everman as “slutty bi-bimbos”) led to Willis punching Mort into the face and forcefully shoving Mort to the floor, and subsequently a full-scale brawl in the audience with items hurled and punches thrown. Audience members, several stage hands, Jameson, and Everman themselves got involved, with Jameson and Everman intervening to separate the pair. In the process, Ava Zinn was struck in the head by a a can of shaving cream and escaped uninjured yet washed out the shaving cream off her head.
May 1 Upon hearing Sam Woolf was eliminated, Ava Zinn stripped naked after she celebrated by spontaneously whipping off her shirt and falling to her knees in her bra (a la Brandi Chastain in the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals). It was not the first time Zinn “pulled a Brandi Chastain” as three years earlier after learning Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina made the Top 3 of American Idol’s tenth season.
6 During The Voice season 6 Top 8 results after learning Christina Grimmie was saved, Ava Zinn creates more controversy by “Twerking,” a YouTube that some described as “raunchy” and “provocative”. It also included a strip tease by Zinn, which critics had similar comments about.
20 Supporters of Christina Grimmie (via Vote for the Girls) and Josh Kaufman (via Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR) engage in a Twitter and Facebook brawl involving WTHR anchors and Vote for the Girls moderators. Jennifer (Tedder) Morris, a supporter of Kaufman initiated the conflict with fans of Grimmie when another supporter of Grimmie (Holly Everman) began intercepting and cyberbullying non-supporters of eventual American Idol 13 4th place contestant Jessica Meuse after Zinn posted incorrect voting info for Meuse and calling supporters for Kaufman “girl-hating commies.” The fifth season of the site’s YouTube series was already called off on April 17 a day before Vote for the Girls founder and Aministrator Ava Zinn announced she was auctioning off her virgininty and her desire to have sexual interourse with a biological female for the final time as a biological male as part of Zinn’s ongoing gender transition from male to female, a threat Zinn made earlier if a male won The Voice and/or American Idol, which did happen on both The Voice and American Idol. The following day after Christina Grimmie’s third place finish (and Vote for the Girls’ first loss on The Voice), on May 21, Everman had shaved off her traditionally long hair immediately upon learning Jena Irene (Asciutto) was runner-up, and consequently, along with Vote for the Girls moderator Kellie Rock began to wear breast binders for the rest of the summer, while Ava Zinn and Kathi Jameson wore strapless tops and halters for the remainder of the summer.
June 1 For the Vote for the Girls Punishment following the losses on The Voice 6 and American Idol 13, the transgendered women (Ava Zinn and Kathi Jameson) and biological women (Kellie Rock and Holly Everman) essentially trade respective gender identity roles: To coincide with their gender transitions from male to female, Zinn and Jameson begin strapless tops, halters, and bikinis over the summer, accompanied by Zinn not wearing a skirt or dress for the summer while Jameson continues her gender transition with skits and dresses; Everman and Rock returns the favor by binding their breasts to create a flat-chested appearance, with Everman passing as a male after her head is shaved and appearing more masculine and wearing male clothing (later revealed to be her father’s) and Rock passing as a woman that had breast cancer.
26 It is announced that Ava will bring INNewsCenter back after a three year hiatus. The revival of INNewsCenter launched on December 28.
July 11 The sixth season premiere of the American adaptation of Vote for the Girls premieres with “Ava’s Virginity Auction,” following the decision to put Ava Zinn’s virginity to the highest female bidder, and the media firestorm that followed after the site’s failure to support Christina Grimmie and Jena Irene Asciutto to victory and a perfect season.
19 As part of a Vote for the Girls Reward as winning moderators, Ava Zinn (as the winning moderator for Tessannne Chin’s victory on The Voice 5), makes the bicycle trip from Marion to Muncie (clad in a strapless pantsuit) visiting Concannon’s Bakery and Cafe (as well as stopping by a Dollar General store in nearby Gaston, in addition to Dollar Tree, Walmart, Speedway, and Aldi) in Holly Everman’s hometown of Muncie. Everman returned the favor spanning three days starting on August 12, 2014 when she biked from Castleton Square Mall to Anderson, from Anderson to Marion (at which necessitated Everman’s relocation to Marion after announcing she and her wife, Veronica, divorced after two years) on August 13, and finally from Marion to Van Buren to visit the Popcorn Festival.
August 11 Tribune Broadcasting signs a deal with CBS to have WTTV (channel 4) become the network’s Indianapolis affiliate. The move to WTTV, effective New Year’s Day 2015, will end CBS’ 58-year relationship with WISH-TV (channel 8), and is reportedly the result of disagreements between CBS and the LIN Media-owned WISH over the network’s demands for reverse compensation of retransmission consent from its affiliates. This eventually spawned the second major network affiliation switch in Indianapolis in over 35 years as WRTV (channel 6) and WTHR (channel 13) switched networks with NBC moving from WRTV to WTHR and ABC moving from WTHR to WRTV, and was confirmed December 22 that WTTV and WISH will swap affiliations, with CW moving from WTTV to WISH.
22 Holly Everman is arrested for her second DUI on the northeast side of Indianapolis after driving northbound on the southbound lanes of Binford Boulevard, and was recorded as having a 0.17 percent blood-alcohol content. She was sentenced to one year probation in a Marion County, Indiana court in Indianapolis on September 10, 2014 and another year of probation and 40 hours of community service five days later in a Grant County court for her role in the Vote for the Girls brawl that began the brunt of Everman’s troubles. She entered a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol abuse and anger management counseling as part of her court obligation, of which she is forbidden from consuming or possessing alcohol and her driving privileges were revoked for a period of six months and 20 days (expiring on March 30, 2015). She will be subject to random drug testing as a condition of her probation. In addition, the judge stipulated that any subsequent OWI or DUI charge in a three year period will be treated as a felony. Everman was also forbidden from doing any media interviews or making comments related to the Vote for the Girls (other than voting but cannot post who she voted for) on social media during the suspension.
24 Vote for the Girls USA is dealt another loss as the site was unable to help Audrey Kate Geiger and Dana Williams to the site’s first victory on the ABC show “Rising Star.”

29 As part of an ongoing negotiation deal with Zinn and her desire to relocate to Indianapolis, it is revealed that Ava Zinn had successfully auctioned off her virginity to Kymberly (Christian) Alvaraz for an undisclosed sum with the sexual encounter that reportedly took place at Zinn’s home on August 31, 2014 with Alvaraz signing a three-year long term relationship deal with Zinn to have Alvaraz as the sixth girlfriend of Ava Zinn. The Ava Zinn/Kymberly Alvaraz relationship agreement ended Alvaraz’s 30-year relationship with Dan Alvaraz, Kymberly’s husband since 1994, is reportedly the result of irreconcilable differences between Dan Alvaraz and Kymberly as well as disagreements between Ava Zinn and several of Zinn’s friends on her Facebook profile over the Zinn’s demands for compensation.
