Following three spectacular New Zealand dates on The Bachelor, star Jason Mesnick had to narrow the field of three - Jillian, Melissa and Molly - to two.

Right or wrong, Mesnick elected to eliminate Jillian Harris, a 29-year-old interior designer from Canada, who gave ET the inside scoop on the show...

ET: What was your favorite part of this experience?

Jillian Harris: Before I did the show, I was a little bit worried if I would find my Prince Charming. Being there and feeling those sparks again made me realize that I can have that feeling again. I loved the adventure of it. I loved not being in control for once. I loved traveling. The girls were awesome. Obviously, Jason treated me like gold. I loved that I was brave enough to take a leap of faith. What do they say? You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.

ET: It has to be hard to get to the final three and not win Jason's heart. If asked, would you consider being the next The Bachelorette?

Jillian Harris: Part of me says, "Jill, stop while you are ahead. Now that you have done this and learned a lot about yourself, do it the old-fashioned way." The old-fashioned way hasn't really been working for me, so the other part of me says, "Jill, just go ahead and do it. You are an adventure seeker. Give it a shot and maybe you can find him that way." I think I have to sleep on it - and maybe have a glass of wine.

ET: You mentioned that you felt you were too slow in letting Jason know how you felt about him. Is that what you would do over? Do you think it would really make a difference, or do people make a true connection, so it wouldn't change things?

Jillian Harris: Very good question. Watching the show now, I think, "Jill, you should have opened up more. Why weren't you more flirty like Melissa?" But a) I am not really like that to begin with, and b) it may have been the connection.

For the record, Rihanna's camp has declined to officially comment on Chris Brown's first public comments since his felony arrest two Sundays ago.

Sources close to her, however, have described the battered singer as being "appalled" by her boyfriend's statement, issued through a spokesman.

Dining Out, Solo

"All of us, including Rihanna, do not understand how he can say he's sorry on the one hand, but still... does not admit any guilt," a Barbados pal of Rihanna tells the Chicago Sun-Times. "He should have expressed more contrition."

After a week of negative press for Chris Brown subsequent to the alleged assault that took place involving Rihanna, Brown released a statement saying he was "sorry and saddened... over what transpired," but did not go into detail.

It has been theorized that a booty call text message triggered an argument between the couple that spiraled out of control and led to a violent altercation. Rihanna also told police that this was not the first time Brown attacked her.

Rihanna and Chris Brown in happier times.

A source close to Rihanna apparently told the newspaper that she is "royally pissed off" at what she calls Brown's "cavalier and arrogant statement."

Both singers have kept a low profile after the incident, which allegedly left Rihanna with horrific injuries. Chris Brown is due in court March 5.

Although she's kept quiet since first being romantically linked with Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher last month, Carrie Underwood publicly cheered for her boyfriend when his team took on her hometown Nashville Predators Monday.

Sitting in a private box in Nashville's Sommet Center, Underwood gripped the edge of her seat as he scored an assist and grimaced as Fisher was checked hard.

At one point, Fisher appeared to look up in her direction and the singer smiled back at him. Ah, to be young, in love and dating a professional hockey player.

It wasn't all fun and games, though. The 25-year-old American Idol champ was briefly shown on the scoreboard for the entire arena to see, and after noticing the cameras were on her, she quickly (and hilariously) tried to take cover ...

The Hollywood Gossip's recap of The Bachelor is a rundown of our favorite (and least favorite) moments, with points awarded or deducted as we see fit.

Last night, the three women accompanied Jason Mesnick to New Zealand - where he made a surprise choice in which one he sent home. Let's get to it ...

Plus 10 for New Zealand. Jealous.

Jason took Jillian to the edge of a cliff and said: "It was just the two of us. There was no one else around for miles and miles..." Minus 5 for ABC's boom mic guy getting in the way of Jason completing that thought.

This week's special feature: Plus 1 for every boring euphemism for sex the writers can come up with. So far: Spend the night together. Connect physically. Handle all this fire. See the passion. Time alone. This week's total: Plus 5!

Sweet mother of ... Jason actually pulled the Titanic card and proceeded to spread his arms in an I'm-the-king-of-the-world sort of way. Minus Infinity.

Jason on the suite card: It was "from Chris to give to me to give to her..." Minus 5. Not as romantic to acknowledge the pimp-like role Chris Harrison plays in all this. But Plus 12 for the pimp-like role Chris Harrison plays in all this.

Despite giving off the impression that she's forcing it and isn't quite sure why she's there, Molly Malaney stuns Jillian for the second rose and earns a place in the finals! Could it be that less enthusiasm and insanity is more? Plus 11.

Melissa Rycroft just wants her parents to see how happy Jason makes her? Their dates are being FILMED! Minus 3, because that makes no sense, and Minus 6 more for the obvious overplaying of the parental absence for two weeks now.

The picture frames of the girls Jason gazes upon contain the same promotional stock pics we use on this site! You can't get any other candid photos, ABC? Minus 4.

Plus 5 for Melissa's video, because it is by far the most sincere and least awkward. On a related note, Jillian refers to Jason as "babe" in hers, while Molly goes with "J" and Melissa the ever-annoying "you." Minus 1 for Jillian and Melissa.

"Dude, when you're 90, you want to be with your best friend." - Jillian Harris. We know you're all laid back and cool and Canadian, Jill, but never start a sentence with "dude" and expect to be taken seriously. Minus 8.

Minus 7 for Jillian for making up that dream about Ty after getting eliminated. Just move on, girl. Sorry, that was mean. Bad us. Minus 5 for our staff.

Finally, Plus 30 for the melodramatic setup to the "shocking" finale and the "intimate" After the Final Rose special to follow. What happened is so emotional ... that we've decided to keep it as intimate as possible. What does that even mean?

Oh, and Plus 16 for that great deleted scene with Jason and Molly in the tub, with their microphones malfunctioning. We imagine 98 percent of the show is like this.

TOTAL: -Infinity, +47! A quick list of who's in and out on The Bachelor...

Roses received at ceremony: Molly, Melissa.

Booted By Jason Mesnick: Jillian.

The Hills stars Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Audrina Patridge and Stephanie Pratt took a little vacation at Turtle Bay resort in Oahu, Hawaii last weekend - and the action was captured by the MTV cameras as well as celebrity news photographers.

The whole gang came - including Brody Jenner, Frankie Delgado and, it appears, even the great Doug Reinhardt - and later kicked it at the famed Sunset Beach ...

The Hills Gang

The Hills stars (all present except for Heidi and Spencer, who apparently have bigger and better things to make money on), spent the afternoon filming the show, with the girls sipping cocktails and the boys going out for an attempt at surfing.

Despite recent photos showing her with a stunningly rounded stomach, typically stick thin supermodel Kate Moss insists she is not pregnant again.

"I am a woman now. It's true! Honestly, I have never worn a bra in my life. Ever! It's so awful, even my friends are phoning me up lately and saying, 'Are you pregnant?'" she tells New York Magazine.

"And I'm like, 'No! I just put on a couple of pounds and they went in the right place.' Isn’t that weird?"

Actually, for her, it kind of is.

Kate Moss says she can now "fill a B-cup" but fears her boyfriend, Kills guitarist Jamie Hince, might like a curvy Kate Moss nude a little less.

"I'm a bit worried," confesses the model, who has a 6-year-old daughter, Lila, from her previous relationship with publisher Jefferson Hack.

Moss also pulled out her cat claws later in their interview, slamming Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes for cutting her in line at last year's Met Ball in NYC.

"Tom and Katie just walked right up to the front, and we were like, 'Who the - are they?" Moss recalled to NY Mag. "They're not even in fashion!'"

No they are not - our Katie Holmes fashion gallery proves as much!

With her heavily-hyped reunion with The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick drawing near on the season finale, DeAnna Pappas has revealed some additional details about why she rejected Mesnick in favor of Jesse Csincsak - then later dumped Csincsak.

"I believe that we all make mistakes in our lives and we learn from them ... it came down to two totally different people. Jason, who has it all together has everything a woman would want. And then there's Jesse, who kind of was a wild card," she told Extra.

The Bachelor Wedding Photo

"For me, I felt like the wild card was going to work out. Someone to keep me on my toes. Eventually, it wasn't what I was attracted to anymore," she added.

Both Jason Mesnick and Jesse Csincsak attempted to propose marriage to DeAnna Pappas during July's broadcast of The Bachelorette's fourth-season finale.

DeAnna Pappas rejected Mesnick, on bended knee, before he could follow through with his marriage proposal offer and presented Csincsak with her final rose.

Things initially seemed to go well for the engaged couple, but after months of wavering over a wedding location, Pappas announced she had broken up with Csincsak.

That split took place in November.

As for her reunion in New Zealand with Mesnick on The Bachelor, Pappas said it was a positive experience for her - and hopefully for The Bachelor viewers as well.

"I believe that it's going to resolve some issues for myself and possibly some viewers," she said.

When speaking of DeAnna Pappas' surprise visit, which will air in two weeks, Mesnick admitted to being caught off guard by the appearance of his ex-flame.

"Of course it threw me off. I fell in love with her and I went through my healing process. She's the last person I expected to see, especially in New Zealand," he said.

Sad dating news to report this morning: Heroes co-stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia have called off their relationship, according to reports.

"It was a lifestyle conflict," a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly, adding that the split happened within the last week.

Hayden Coughs

"[Hayden and Milo] were in very different places in their lives. They are still on friendly terms. There are no hard feelings."

The source tells Us that Hayden Panettiere, 19, "is young. She likes to go out in the Hollywood scene and that's not his style."

THG NOTE: What exactly does this supposed source mean by "go out" exactly? Despite what you see on Gossip Girl, teenagers can't drink freely in clubs - even though bribes do go along way. Just saying. And does Hayden even party that much?

As for Milo Ventimiglia, 31, he "has been concentrating on work on his production company [Divide Pictures]," the source adds.

The two, who began dating in late 2007 or early 2008, had been an open secret as a couple for months – in part because of their 12-year age gap.

This is too bad, but we totally saw it coming. Kind of makes us think that the recent report of Hayden mauling Jesse McCartney was probably true.

Tonight on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick takes the final three bachelorettes to New Zealand for overnight dates - where the fantasy suite may or may not be in play.

Later, the L-word is dropped by one of the three girls, and one is sent home at the end. Will it be Melissa Rycroft, Jillian Harris or Molly Malaney hitting the road?

Check out the sneak preview below ...

Pretty standard promo - except for the part about the "shocking" season finale, which is already being hyped even before tonight's elimination has been announced.

We're referring to the millisecond-long shot about two-thirds of the way in, which clearly shows Jason kissing a woman that really, really looks like DeAnna Pappas.

We know she's coming back to the show in some capacity, but is she really making a play for The Bachelor's heart? We're fairly certain it's her. See screen cap below:

Jason Mesnick Kissing DeAnna Pappas

Scandalous, to say the least - either if it actually happens, or if ABC used old footage from last season's The Bachelorette as the ultimate fake-out. Wouldn't surprise us.

What do you think? Would Jason actually choose DeAnna Pappas if given the choice over his remaining options this season, or is this all just reality TV smoke and mirrors?

We'll find out soon enough. For now, follow the jump for a two-minute clip from tonight's episode, in which Molly Malaney and Jason go bungee jumping ...
