After the new star of The Bachelor was revealed last week, ABC received a collective "wow" reaction from fans. Just not the type of "wow" they were looking for.

"OMFG ... JAKE is the new Bachelor?!" This was the collective response here at THG headquarters. And we were far from alone in that exclamation of shock and blah.

But are we writing off Jake Pavelka too quickly?

Perhaps the backlash against the Dallas commercial pilot can be mostly attributed to greater adoration for Reid Rosenthal and/or Kiptyn Locke. Or perhaps not.

Here's a look at some of the pros and cons of Jake Pavelka. Think he'll be worth watching when The Bachelor when the long-running show returns in January?

Jake Pavelka: The Bachelor

JAKE SUCKS BECAUSE ...

  1. He sold out Wes Hayden. What a d!ck move.
  2. He was kinda angling for this the whole time.
  3. He's not Reid Rosenthal. What can you do.
  4. Jake is boring. That was why Jillian Harris rejected him on The Bachelorette. He seems like Mr. Perfect, yet only superficially. Odd choice for a star, no?

JAKE RULES BECAUSE ...

  1. He sold out Wes Hayden. Hey, it made for good TV.
  2. He really "believes in the process" for some reason.
  3. He's Chris Harrison endorsed. "I haven't spent a ton of time with him yet, but he seems like a good guy," Chris said. "I bet it's a really good season."
  4. He's open-minded about the gals' looks. "I'm looking for a heart of gold. Character. Someone that's compassionate and romantic. Passionate."
  5. Jake is hot. See pic above. No disputing this one.

Well? Will Jake Pavelka be a good Bachelor?

The Hills star Stephanie Pratt was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence early this morning in Hollywood, Calif.

The She-Pratt was busted this morning at 3:45 a.m. PDT.

Da She-Pratt

She was taken into custody. Her bail is set at $5,000. As of this posting, Stephanie Pratt is still in custody, and has yet to be booked by the local police.

Few details of her arrest are known, but spectators who had just gotten out of a club saw Pratt get busted. Some started taking pictures of her arrest.

This apparently sparked a big fight in the street while Stephanie was being cuffed by cops. Nevertheless, Pratt was the only one taken into custody.

Pratt was also popped for bad plastic surgery. Just kidding.

We eagerly await the latest Stephanie Pratt mug shot.

So far, it's all quiet on Team Speidi. We know, we're as surprised as you that Spencer Pratt has not commented or held a massive press conference yet.

The occasion last night? It looks like she was out celebrating the birthday of Heidi's sis Holly Montag. About 11 hours ago, Stephanie wrote on Twitter:

"its my sissy @hollymontags bday party! just finished dinner and going to Empire but im pretty tired aka yes i am the party pooper :("

Looks like she rallied. Big time.

This summer, So You Think You Can Dance producer Nigel Lythgoe had this awesome Michael Jackson-dance-tribute episode of the Fox hit planned. He even had Paula Abdul putting it together ... until Team MJ nixed it at the last minute.

Whether it was Sony or the [Jackson] family estate, SYTYCD could not get the music cleared legally, as they must to use it on the show. Which is too bad.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Pic

Well, Dancing With the Stars will be putting on its own show dedicated to the late King of Pop. The special Jackson tribute will air this Tuesday, October 20.

All Season 9 DWTS pros - including Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, Derek Hough, Kym Johnson, Lacey Schwimmer, Jonathan Roberts, Edyta Sliwinska and Karina Smirnoff - are on board.

The late Michael Jackson will be honored on Dancing with the Stars.

That's cool and all, except for the fact that So You Think You Can Dance would have done a better job. DWTS' higher ratings probably persuaded Jackson's reps to green light it, but the late music icon himself would probably disapprove.

If he were alive, he'd be hiring his backup dancers out of the younger, hipper SYTYCD troupe (like winner Jeanine Mason) before the DWTS pros in a second.

DWTS' professionals are talented, but lack the unique, eclectic styles and wow factor that has consistently made SYTYCD one of the most fun shows on TV.

We hope we're proven wrong and Dancing With the Stars knocks it out of the park. But it seems like So You Think You Can Dance and its better production/direction, and more appropriate talent, should have been the pick to honor MJ.

Let's put it this way: Which show's cast would do the best job paying homage to Jackson's "Bad" video, for example? We rest our case.

Levi Johnston has been working out like a madman to prepare for his Playgirl photo shoot. He's also looking to gobble up massive amounts of publicity and attention high-protein moose meat whenever he can go hunting.

The 19-year-old baby daddy of Bristol Palin definitely didn't shoot blanks when he knocked her up last year, so you best believe he uses live ammo, if you follow.

"Moose meat is very good for you, high in protein and very lean," his trainer, Marvin Jones, told People magazine. "[Levi] is an avid hunter, so he has his own."

He's adopted a 3,500-calorie low-carb diet as part of a grueling regimen to ready him for next month's highly-anticipated Levi Johnston nude photo shoot.

Johnston works out three hours a day, six days a week, followed by cardio training and then rest in the sauna. It's a tough life, but someone's gotta do it.

Redneck

Whether he's hunting moose or sleeping with Sarah Palin's daughter, Levi Johnston does not mess around. The safety is definitely not on, if you know what we mean.

"I'm not trying to give him that body builder look. He's going to be more toned and defined," says Jones. "I'd like to see him with rounder and more muscular shoulders, with a fuller chest. We're going to firm his abs up,  give him a smaller waist."

Levi has also been milking his 15 minutes of fame to death paying bills by busting a nut in an ad for Wonderful Pistachios. Is this a great country, or what?

He may not have ever really been engaged to Bristol Palin, but Johnston is wholly committed to the training sessions, according to his fitness coordinator.

"I know this is something he wants to do and we're having fun training," says Jones. "We're very much  looking forward to revealing all his hard work!"

Do you wanna see Levi Johnston naked?

Robert Thomas, who used to work for Richard Heene (Balloon Boy's dad), said he was obsessed with becoming famous, wanted his own reality show, and had this wild idea for a media stunt that involved a weather balloon that resembles a UFO.

As with Heene's press conference, we wish we were kidding.

Thomas tells Gawker that Heene said this would "be the most significant UFO-related news event to take place since the Roswell Crash of 1947."

He says Heene was "driven by ego and fame" after being on Wife Swap. He says Heene's idea for a show was something like "MythBusters-meets-mad scientist."

Yeah. Richard's gonna be out a lot of money pretty soon.

Thomas says he worked for Heene from March-May of this year, and said he was looking to sell his side of the story for money. Gawker admits paying him for it.

Nevertheless, the Larimer County Sheriff's Department is preparing to file charges against the Heene family over the heavily-publicized incident late last week.

Hopefully Richard Heene and family have a lot of money saved up.

Six-year-old Falcon Heene (middle) was reported missing and thought to be carried off in Richard's balloon, causing mass hysteria. But he was just in the attic.

Sheriff Jim Alderden indicated criminal charges may be filed against one or both parents for the Balloon Boy hoax. He said the charges now would likely be misdemeanors, but that "hardly seems serious enough given the circumstances."

He said he will speak with the FAA about pursuing more "appropriate charges."

In other words, payback for the millions Heene caused emergency responders to waste planning to rescue his son, who wasn't even on the freaking balloon.

Deputies are already working on a search warrant of Richard Heene's home. Officers showed up at the Heene home with a search warrant late Saturday night.

At least three officers showed up at the home to execute the warrant, and while they wouldn't reveal what they were looking for, they're not taking it lightly.

No word on whether Falcon Heene is feeling better.

In 2008, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart posed for a photo shoot with Vanity Fair.

At the time, the actors were almost scarcely known, as the Twilight phenomenon was just taking off and rumors of their relationship weren't making a blip on the celebrity gossip radar.

Fast forward a year, and it's safe to say times have changed.

Now, the recently-released outtakes from this spread are causing quite an online stir. The reason? They may be the most revealing shots we have of this likely couple.

Because the pictures were snapped prior to the paparazzi and tabloid onslaught that has taken over Robert and Kristen's life, the two were unafraid to be cozy, comfortable and adorable with one another. Here's what we mean:

Major Smooch

You'd be hard pressed to find any new photos of Robsten conducting such PDA sessions, so take full advantage of these images. Click on each below for larger, cuter pics of the Twilight Saga stars:

Used to stealing the spotlight from other talentless celebrities, Kourtney Kardashian has now seen expensive items of her own stolen.

The socialite's home was burglarized last night, a discovery made by Kourtney after she and Scott Disick returned from dinner.

According to police, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was taken, including a Cartier watch, a Rolex, diamonds and gifts given to Kourtney by her late father, Robert Kardashian.

Kim and Kourt

Kourtney celebrated an early birthday for Kim Kardashian on Friday night, but her mood quickly changed an evening later.

As Liam Hemsworth likely knows, Miley Cyrus knows a thing or two about sex.

Soon, movie fans will find this out for themselves.

Following various reports and rumors, it's now been confirmed that the Disney icon will make a cameo in the Sex and the City sequel.

She won't speak (thank goodness), but the singer will appear on the red carpet of an event... wearing the same dress as Samantha Jones, much to the chagrin of the latter character!

Cyrus actually modeled the dress in question for reporters this week. This is what you'll see her donning on screen:

  • Miley Dress
  • Miley Cyrus Cameo

In response to the role, Miley Tweeted... nothing.

Sex and the City 2 comes out in May 2010. Will you be more likely to see if with Cyrus on board?

We apologize to Megan Fox, Marisa Miller and whatever other beauties people wish to bring up.

But the debate about the sexiest woman alive is over. It's finished. It's more obvious than the phoniness of the balloon boy hoax.

Halle Berry has earned the honor. Her years of hard work, solid acting and absolute hotness are unparalleled in the annals of female homosapiens.

Just look at the photo of Berry below. This comes after giving birth, mind you. Can anyone really debate that you're looking at the best looking woman alive?

After weeks of dragging out the rumors in order to create headlines speculation, Bethenny Frankel has confirmed the worst kept secret on reality TV:

She's engaged to Jason Hoppy!

"He liked it so much he put a ring on it!" the entrepreneur, channeling her inner Beyonce told E! News.

Hoppy proposed in Frankel's apartment, presenting her with an 8-carat ring. No wonder she said yes! The pair has been dating since December 2008.

"It feels great, because I'm with the right person," said Frankel. "He's may be regretting it because it's been beyond a week and he's in panic mode – no, we're enjoying it."

Frankel and Hoppy

The other major Real Housewives of New York City news this week was that Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert are joining the cast.
