In a new twist on the reality TV format, NBC is launching a nationwide search for America’s favorite mom. The search is being done to commemorate Mother’s Day. NBC will partner with Reveille and Teleflora to give children and adults the chance to nominate their moms for this special recognition.
Since January 7, people have been nominating their mothers at AmericasFavoriteMom.com. After all the nominations have been received, the top twenty-five nominees will appear throughout the week before Mother’s Day on the Today show on NBC. Viewers will then be given the chance to vote for their favorite mom.
The winning mom from each day of the week will be featured on the America’s Favorite Mom finale on Mother’s Day. On the program, one mom will be announced as the winner of America’s Favorite Mom. The winner will have a rose named in her honor and will receive thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, including an 18-carat, gold heart-shaped America’s Favorite Mom pendant trimmed with diamonds.
Teleflora Presents America’s Favorite Mom was announced by Craig Plestis, Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming, Development and Specials at NBC Entertainment. “Partnering with Teleflora and showcasing America’s best moms on the Today show creates the perfect platform to recognize these amazing women,” said Plestis. “We want to highlight America’s favorite mothers on a grand scale and give them the spotlight they deserve.”
Teleflora Presents America’s Favorite Mom airs on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11 from 7 PM to 8 PM ET on NBC.
