“I really love my followers,” he told us over the phone earlier this week. “They’re smart, they’re driven, and they’re open to learning new things all the time. I feel very lucky to live in a time when people who are interested in my brand and the lifestyle have the ability to have a dialogue with me personally. For me, it’s a real big thank you to all of the followers and fans I have social media and Instagram. And all the people who get hungry watching and following #CookingWithZac.”

A few of his most famous friends encouraged voters, including the creative team behind @projectrunway and model @cocorocha, but there was one person who definitely tipped the scale in his favor, he said. “Contrary to me having powerful friends, who encouraged people to follow me, I have an incredibly loyal mother, who definitely clicked away,” he said. Congrats again, Zac. And Mrs. Posen, too!
