Exclusive: GLEE’s Kevin McHale Dishes on Hosting the 2012 Teen Choice Awards with Demi Lovato!

Hey CelebSecrets4U readers,

Earlier this week we were with GLEE star Kevin McHale at the famous Hollywood and Highland Complex Central Courtyard for a really cool event about giving back to the environment and going green.

For the second year in a row, FOX and the THE TEEN CHOICE AWARDS encouraged teens to do their part for our planet and go green! Keeping in line with our GREEN IT. MEAN IT. campaign, Fox Broadcasting Company has partnered with Global Inheritance and constructed  an energy playground where participants not only learned more about what they can do to be eco-friendly, but could hop on a bike, swing, see-saw or wheel and generate some clean energy themselves! On Monday, July 16, both amateur and experienced riders pedaled 16 bikes hooked up to Global Inheritance’s “Tour de Energy” bike station to produce kinetic energy that is converted to electricity and pumped back into the grid. The site also featured the Energy Playground which included Energy Swings, Energy See-saws and Human Hamster Wheels as well as fun activities for all ages including t-shirt making, a Sno-Cone machine and a raffle! All of the energy for the event was generated by riders, making it a totally carbon neutral event!

GLEE star and this year’s Teen Choice Awards Kevin McHale was there to support the awesome cause and also gave us a little teaser about what it will be like hosting with Demi Lovato this Sunday. Check out the full interview and photos below. Make sure to tune in this Sunday at 8PM ET/PT for the 14th Annual Teen Choice Awards only on FOX.
