History of Robert Pattinson Worldwide, formerly Spunk-Ransom.com:

The Spunk Ransom || Robert Pattinson fansite began as a MySpace between two strangers across the globe, Kristin Rielly (Owner) in the United States and Mareike Annies (Media Crew) in Germany, who shared a common interest, Robert Pattinson. The MySpace opened on July 10, 2008 and grew to 3700+ friends and more than 170,000 blog views in three months. The MySpace garnished the attention of The Movie Fanatic with Kristin as a writer and Mareike as a German correspondent for the Little Ashes Promotional Blitz project. With the popularity of the MySpace, Kristin took the MySpace to the next level and this site was born.

The name change of Robert Pattinson Worldwide came in August 2014 after five years under the Spunk Ransom name.  The hopes are to expand connections in the industry of film with a not so risky name.

What Others Have Said About Robert Pattinson Worldwide, formerly Spunk-Ransom.com:

MTV’s Larry Carroll (12/28/08) said,

“Your site holds a special place in my heart, especially since the “Spunk Ransom” name was originally coined during one of my interviews with Rob. Somehow, as soon as the words came out of his mouth, I knew the Twilighters would love it!”

The Movie Fanatic (08/22/08) said,

“….is that kind of special place – chaotic but cool, fresh, versatile, friendly and hip.”

PopSugarTV’s Kat (5/4/11) said,

“Spunk Ransom is an amazing resource for all things Rob! I love swapping news with the Spunk team and sharing excitement over upcoming releases and appearances. Spunk Ransom’s dedication to Rob news is one in a million!”

Film festival journalist, writer, and photographer Larry Richman (8/2/11) said,

“Unlike most blogs and “fansites,” Spunk Ransom actually makes the effort to get it right. That’s what distinguishes journalists from gossip columnists — their desire to print the truth comes before the temptation to grab readers with rumors.”

WhatCulture! writer Simon Gallagher (9/6/11) said in his Water for Elephants blu-ray review,

“Of course Water For Elephants was always going to carry the subtitle of What Robert Pattinson Did Next, and as such the myriad fansites dedicated to the Twilight star (my favourite of which is called SpunkRansom) quickly took it to their hearts.”
