Like the Facebook post says, Tara Reid is a household name for more reasons than just Sharknado. Including cult classics The Big Lebowski, Van Wilder, and Cruel Intentions. Geek-wise, interestingly, she appeared next to Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds in Van Wilder:

Geek'd Con is one of the largest comic/geek/pop culture conventions in the state, seeing over 12,000 turnstiles during last year's inaugural event.

This year looks to be even bigger, with the first two guest announcements being massive. Earlier this year, comic book legend George Perez was announced, and now with today's news of Tara Reid coming, Geek'd Con is setting up to surpass last year's attendance.
