Man, this girl looks great in any outfit - and any capacity.

Last night on The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas assumed the role of pit crew chief as her aspiring husbands took the racetrack.

One by one, the guys took a lap at the speedway and tried to get the best speed and time, thus earning a special date with D.

The Bachelorette's DeAnna Pappas is a natural when it comes to auto racing. Or at least wearing the clothes that one of the pit crew chiefs might don.

A pair of Hollywood Gossip favorites recently showed off their fine form - on the pitcher's mound! As baseball fans, we couldn't resist this photo finish ...

Newlywed Mariah Carey threw out the first pitch at a Japanese baseball game this week. No word on whether her throw made it to home plate, but at least she has a shiny jacket with her initials embroidered. That counts for something.

This week on The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas took to the hill against some of her aspiring boyfriends at Dodger Stadium. Most of the shlubs proved inept at home run derby, but DeAnna looked stellar. And we don't mean her mechanics.

Last night on The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas and a bunch of her would-be boyfriends went to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for some home run derby.

These guys may be cool folks with great careers, but if their hitting skills are any indication, they shouldn't bank on hitting many home runs off the field, if you know what we mean. We're saying they're terrible.

DeAnna Pappas, meanwhile, proved every bit the All-American girl, a fun-loving, candid, gorgeous gal who doesn't even have to try too hard at it ...

In a possible sign of things to come, few homers were hit last night by DeAnna Pappas' aspiring husbands, who competed for time with her via home run derby.

After the final rose ceremony, DeAnna had handed out roses to Paul, Graham, Jeremy, Ron, Jesse, Robert, Brian, Jason, Fred, Sean, Richard, and Twilley, thus paring the field down to 12 and eliminating Ryan, Chris, and Eric.

At the end, DeAnna took a minute to herself, as it was hard to let people down. It was especially hard for her since she knows how it feels - that jackass Brad Womack did the same thing to her, as ABC reminded us 25 times.

On the fourth season premiere of The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas met 25 eligible men who came from all over just to meet her.

First, she addressed the issue of past, when she had her heart broken by former star of The Bachelor, that moron Brad Womack.

Bachelorette Dance-Off!

Then one by one, men got out of the limo and tried their best to make a good first impression. Some did well... others not.

With a little help from friend and fellow Womack reject Jenni Croft, DeAnna Pappas took on the tough task of axing 10 men in one night.

At the rose ceremony, the natural beauty from Georgia asked Ron, Graham, Eric, Robert, Sean, Ryan, Chris, Paul, Fred, Twilley (!?), Jason, and Brian (Texas) to stay and get to know her better. Ah, The Bachelorette.

We just hope DeAnna finds true happiness with one of these dudes the way Trista Sutter did. There's too much heartbreak in the reality TV world.

Move over, Shayne Lamas.

A new season of The Bachelorette kicks off Monday, starring DeAnna Pappas, the girl that jackass Brad Womack was about to propose to on The Bachelor, but dumped on the season finale (as he did Jenni Croft) instead.

In any case, DeAnna gets a new chance at love when 25 men from across the country come to win her heart. This season features a new twist.

She'll be able to ask some of the men to live with her, in order to get to know them better. Her former Bachelor rival, Jenni Croft, will help her narrow down the group of men on the first night at the house as well.

In return, DeAnna will teach Jenni how to properly spell her first name.

Pappas, DeAnna

Every time a commercial airs for The Bachelorette, it begins by showing DeAnna Pappas' heart get broken when Brad Womack dumps her on The Bachelor.

Although hard to watch, DeAnna Pappas keeps it in perspective.

"I was really confused when it happened. But after it was all over, said and done with, I was actually very happy that [Brad Womack] stood up for what he believed in and didn't propose to someone just because he was under pressure," Pappas said.

"I'm thankful he didn't propose to me. Everything happens for a reason and I'm where I am today because of all of that and I'm very happy for that."

They're hot and they're about to be two of the biggest stars on the reality TV scene. DeAnna Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack on the stunning finale of The Bachelor last season, returns this summer as The Bachelorette.

Starting this evening at 9:30 EDT on ABC, Matt Grant takes over for Womack as The Bachelor begins its 12th season. Heck, all the handsome Englishman needs to do is pick a damn winner and he'll be an improvement over that stiff Brad.

Who are these hotties? We'll have to get to know them better in the coming weeks and months to really answer that, but for starters, here are a few Matt Grant photos and DeAnna Pappas pictures to get you acclimated ...

Answer: Not with the chicks they picked.

That would be enough to answer that question for us, but ABC insists on airing an entire special about it next month. This will surely offer us some hot footage of some past Bachelor studs, but still. Pretty unnecessary!

When The Bachelor finishes airing each season, only one thing is certain: the final couple breaks up ASAP and goes back to real life.

While updates are often found on the hunky bachelors themselves after the inevitable split, the same cannot be said for the women.

ABC has this decided to shine a light on those forgotten women, giving Matt Grant a glimpse into his future of public humiliation and failure.

On Monday March 10 at 8 p.m., ABC will air the special, The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? During the hour-long special, host Chris Harrison will sit down with and visit some of the memorable bachelors and aspiring trophy wives.

Some stars of The Bachelor (well, one) have achieved lasting romance, while most do not. Some even end up beating the crap out of their chosen partner. So it goes.

In addition to rekindling massive amounts of heartbreak, the special will visit the only happy couple to come out of the series so far, Ryan and Trista Sutter (above) - now featuring an adorable baby boy, Max! Yay!

Fans of last year's epic season of The Bachelor are also in luck as both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft will offer updates. DeAnna will dish on starring on the newest season of The Bachelorette for ABC, which airs this summer.

All we have to say is that Brad Womack better not show his face. If he does, our staff is gonna go Mary Delgado on his indecisive punk ass.

The Hollywood Gossip is pleased to relay some big reality TV news - a dream of ours that we hoped would come true for some time now.

No, Whitney Port has not agreed to go out with us.

Something almost that good, though. After getting dissed on the last season of The Bachelor, DeAnna Pappas is ready for another go at TV love.

It's true! DeAnna Pappas, 26, a real estate agent from Neunan, Ga., will headline the next season of ABC's The Bachelorette, airing this summer.

Despite being awesome, she endured a painful, last-minute rejection by that jackass Brad Womack on The Bachelor season finale last November.

Even though he had even flown her father in and implied he was going to pick her, he rejected Pappas, as well as her competition, Jenni Croft.

Worst. Bachelor. Ever. Good riddance to you, Brad Womack.

Best. Bachelorette. Ever. Welcome back, DeAnna Pappas!

ABC recently announced that in addition to the new season of The Bachelor that will air this spring, The Bachelorette will return this summer.

Why there has been a three-year gap since a woman was last in the driver's seat is not known, though the waffling of Brad Womack may be a big reason the network eventually decided to bring back the popular spin-off.

DeAnna Pappas from the last season of The Bachelor was first on many lists of prime candidate for The Bachelorette. While nothing has been announced, she's certainly stoking the rumors with some recent comments.

If she were to become The Bachelorette, DeAnna said:

"I would approach the experience with a very open mind. I would also do my best to try to be very understanding considering I would know exactly what the guys are going through! I will approach it with the hope of finding one amazing man that hopefully I can live happily ever after with in the end."

DeAnna Pappas, seen here with that ass clown Brad, also mused on what kind of romantic dates she would like to plan if she were chosen as The Bachelorette.

"[Brad Womack] told us girls that he was able to help the producers with some of the ideas for the dates... like the circus date, the pool date, etc. Those dates were my favorite because I am so a low key, easy to please person," she said.

"I'm not a very "girly" girl... so diamonds and fancy dresses don't impress me! Flowers either for that matter... they just die! I guess if I could choose the dates, I would really love to go to a baseball game and drink beer! A football game would even please me. Maybe something more active, like white water rafting or on a boat at the lake. That's real life for me."

NOTE: Call us, DeAnna. Please?

Whether or not DeAnna Pappas becomes The Bachelorette remains to be seen, but it appears she's put some thought into it - and would be stellar.

We've heard from Brad Womack earlier. Now it's time to hear what DeAnna Pappas - one of the two women he spurned on The Bachelor - has to say.

Our friends at BuddyTV sat down with DeAnna Pappas for an exclusive. She dishes some pretty good dirt on Brad Womack, fellow rejected finalist Jenni Croft, and the rest of the girls on the show. Here are some excerpts ...

Question: Did you watch the finale? Or did you decide to skip it?

DeAnna Pappas: It was kind of hard for me to watch, but I watched it.

Question: Did you have any sympathetic feelings toward Jenni Croft?

DeAnna Pappas: Of course. Jenni is a great person. She has a big heart. And to see her standing there smiling, I mean, I don't feel like she had any clue that he wasn't going to pick her, and my heart just went out to her.

Brad Womack, DeAnna Pappas

DeAnna Pappas and Brad Womack: Almost meant to be.

Question: They mentioned very briefly on that after the final rose special, that your dad was flown out for the engagement. What happened?

DeAnna Pappas: When I came back to my apartment the day after the final rose, my dad was there. He was just as confused as I was because he had no idea. He just knew that I didn't get chosen after he was already there.

Question: Now how long into the process did you really start to think that things could be serious with Brad Womack?

DeAnna Pappas: I knew from the first moment that I sat down and talked to Brad that I had a very strong connection with him. I truly felt like I was meant to be with this person. But it wasn't until he went to my hometown and Brad got to meet my family, that I realized I was actually falling in love with this person.

Question: Have you guys had any contact since?

DeAnna Pappas: I have had contact with Brad. Yes.

Question: There's a lot of rumors going around as to why he pick either of you. Do you, at this point, have any idea as to why he opted out?

DeAnna Pappas: I do have an idea, and I don't believe any of the rumors. I don't listen to them because I know that Brad is a very genuine person. He is a great person and one of the most amazing men that I've ever met. I truly believe that in this experience he got completely confused. He didn't know what was real and what wasn't real, and I'm not sure that he even knows today.
