“Having hired my first hooker at 14 (gave a boy my lunch money out in the woods), I am truly honored and excited to be hosting this prestigious event again,” Leslie Jordan said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. “Let those boys know that Little Sugar Daddy is in the house and looking for someone to spoil!"

The Hookies feature categories such as Best Daddy, Best Newcomer and Mr. International Escort 2014, the show's top prize. The Awards themselves will take place on March 21 from 9:00 p.m.-1:00 a.m. at BPM at The OutNYC. Head here for more information.
