'H8R' Premiere: Snooki Finds Out Her Hater's Mom Is a Hater, Too (VIDEO)

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, 'H8R'Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and former 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka were the first subjects of new reality series 'H8R' (Wed., 8PM ET on The CW). The new series puts together C-list celebrities with regular people who hate them to see what happens when the celebrity stops being the sum of their tabloids and television appearances.

In premise, the show isn't a bad idea, but in execution it was lacking. Plus, am I the only one who doesn't understand why this is a fall-launching show on a major network (minor-major network, but still!)? 'H8R' feels like the kind of filler that does quite well in the summertime, and even better on cable. Even the textable title screams MTV.

Did you H8 The CW's 'H8R'?

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 14th 2011 10:01PM
Jake Pavelka, H8RWhen I watched 'H8R,' I wasn't expecting much. However, I had a little faith there would be at least some entertainment value. There wasn't.

This show is probably one of the least real reality shows out there.

The premise: "Real" people (putting real in quotes because I'm not convinced these people aren't actors) hate "celebrities" (putting celebrities in quotes because this show is filled with lots of D-list reality stars), then there is a confrontation between the "real" person and "celebrity."

After the two spend a day together, the show ends on a message of "bullying is bad" -- hey, it is -- and the two people go on their merry way.

Danielle Staub Wants Jake Pavelka to 'Grow a Pair' on 'Famous Food' (VIDEO)

Jake Pavelka, 'Famous Food'Poor Jake Pavelka. His smarmy grin and over-confidence doesn't work on Danielle Staub. She has no interest in his "charm" and calls him out for what she sees a serious lack of gonads on 'Famous Food' (Wed., 8PM ET on VH1).

The problem for Jake is that what he sees as his charisma and charm, many people instead see him as kind of a jerk. There's confident, and then there's arrogant, and he tends to come across as more the latter.

Danielle called him out after a discussion about what to do with the walls of the restaurant. After their first designer made the restaurant boring and bland, Ashley was prepared with another designer, but Danielle figured it wasn't in the budget.

Danielle Staub Sees Why Jake Pavelka Is 'One of the Most Hated Bachelors' (VIDEO)

Danielle Staub, 'Famous Food'Normally, it can get pretty annoying when Jake Pavelka is getting pretentious and preachy. But for some reason it was an absolute delight watching him turn those snarky retorts on Danielle Staub on 'Famous Food' (Wed., 8PM ET on VH1).

"Now I know why he might be one of the most hated Bachelors," Staub said of Pavelka, an ironic claim considering her popularity with 'Housewives' fans.

The fight came when they made changes to the menu without consulting Staub. She was incensed that Pavelka hadn't texted her and called him a snake. She then asked him if they had "some of those in Texas".

Designer Scott Argues Over the Floor Plan on 'Famous Food' (VIDEO)

Jake Pavelka, 'Famous Food'With seven famous people trying to work together to put a restaurant together in five weeks on 'Famous Food' (Wed., 8PM ET on VH1), we can expect some world-class clashing going on. And we have not been disappointed on that front.

But this week, they were able to unite for a common purpose: Trying to figure out what their designer, Scott, thinks he's doing. When they came to him with some concerns about the seating in the main dining room, they found out he'd already ordered furniture for a floor plan without consulting them.

What's worse, he didn't seem to care how they felt about it, or whether it was a breach of his contract or not. Probably because he'd already received a check for $42,500. He told them if they needed anything more, it would cost them more.

'Famous Food' Cast Photo: Yep, This is Real

Famous FoodWe've been chronicling the creation of VH1's 'Famous Food' as any self-respecting rubber-necker might do, and the latest tidbit from the trainwreck-in-the-making, an official cast photo, won't disappoint.

In what many (we) are calling a reality show apocalypse, Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka are teaming to open a restaurant. The cast also includes Ashley Dupre (call girl to New York's former governor Eliot Spitzer, but VH1 lists her as a "singer"), Oscar-winners DJ Paul and Juicy J from the Three 6 Mafia and 'Sopranos' veteran Vincent Pastore.

The cast will have to complete tasks to get the restaurant (titled Famous Food) off the ground. Restauranteurs Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore of the Dolce Group will award one lucky "celeb" with a partnership stake in the new restaurant.

The show premieres Sun., July 10 at 10PM and you bet your bottom we'll be watching this gem.

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #3' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted Apr 13th 2010 1:34AM
Jake trips on Dancing with the Stars(S10E06) The format of 'Dancing with the Stars' continues to borrow from other reality shows by creating different themes each week. This week the contestants will be scored by both technique and performance. The scores are still out of a 30. For the rumba and the tango, the judges will be looking for three specific dance moves.

As the couples walk down the stairs, Maks tries to signal someone by tugging his ear and almost trips down the stairs. Kate continues to tell her children that she loves them via bad hand signs.

I had a problem with Brooke tonight. Not only did the crossing ribbons on her midsection make her look fat, was she pronouncing celebrity names incorrectly? Luckily, the filler this week were very interesting demos from professionals that didn't make the cut this season.

'Dancing With the Stars': Who Waltzes Away With a Win?

by David Hofstede, posted Mar 15th 2010 3:00PM
Pamela AndersonIt's that time again. The celebrities have been gathered from across the sports and entertainment spectrum to show off their ballroom skills (or lack thereof) on season 10 of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., March 22, 8PM ET on ABC).

This year, there aren't any outsized fan bases among the participants, as there was last season with Donny Osmond, who took home the show's mirror-ball trophy over competition that was a little more polished on the dance floor. Hopefully, that means the results will be decided more by dance ability than popularity. Here's how we rank the season 10 contestants and their odds of winning:

How Much 'Bachelor' Is Too Much 'Bachelor'?

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 8th 2010 4:00PM
The recent season finale of 'The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love' drew 15 million viewers, and helped make the season the show's most watched since 2003. Obviously, despite the fact that many fans are still scratching their heads over 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka's choice of Vienna Girardi to receive his final rose (not to mention an engagement ring), and that the show has so far resulted in just one marriage, 'The Bachelor' is getting much love these days.

But with spin-offs, televised weddings, 'Bachelor' stars on other reality series and now, even a 'Bachelor' video game on the way, are we in the midst of 'Bachelor' overkill?

'Bachelor's' Jake and Vienna Fail Ellen DeGeneres' 'Newlywed Game' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 4th 2010 10:04PM
New 'Bachelor' couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi were on Thursday's 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and DeGeneres had them play a version of 'The Newlywed Game,' in which a couple has to answer questions to determine how much they know about each other. Unfortunately for the pair, it turns out that they don't know a heck of a lot about each other's likes and dislikes (well, at least not in this round). Is this a bad omen?

Tenley Molzahn Would Love to Beat Jake Pavelka on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 3rd 2010 11:12PM
Tenley Molzahn, Ellen DeGeneresWow, Tenley Molzahn has a great attitude about Jake Pavelka's decision on 'The Bachelor.' You know the one we're talking about – when he chose Vienna Girardi over Molzahn. Outraged fans took to the Internet to rake Pavelka over the cyber-coals for his decision.

But Molzahn? She's ok with it. "I think it was two completely different relationships, and he just had to pick which one he wanted to live with for the rest of his life," she said on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

But Ellen DeGeneres brings up a good idea. Since Pavelka's going on 'Dancing With the Stars,' maybe Molzahn should consider it, too. She's a dancer, after all. "The most brilliant idea would be to be his competition," she told DeGeneres.

Crush him like a rock, Tenley! We'd love to see that!

'The Bachelor' Finale and 'After the Final Rose' Recap

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 1st 2010 10:00PM
Oh, Jake. Jake, Jake, Jake. In a choice that came down to the so-called good girl vs. the girl who'd been called everything but good, 'The Bachelor' Jake Pavelka chose the bad girl, by proposing to blonde vixen Vienna Girardi and sending good girl Tenley Molzahn packing.

Yep, he chose Vienna, the woman hated by many other bachelorettes; the woman who said she was in love for the first time (despite being married once and engaged to another man); the woman who both viewers and tabloid magazines had trashed since Jake had chosen her as a finalist.
