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

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 15th 2011 1:18AM
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.

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 9th 2011 12:00AM
Bachelor Pad contestantsSummer is here! For some, that means barbecues, pool parties and beach bonfires; for the alumni of ABC's 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' franchises, it means 'Bachelor Pad' -- possibly the trashiest, tawdriest trainwreck of a reality competition show since 'Temptation Island,' and we just can't resist it! (Believe us, we've tried.)

If you thought last year's contest was crazy, you ain't seen nothing yet. Wedging feuding exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi back into one house seemed juicy enough, but add in the likes of Kasey "Guard and Protect Your Heart" Kahl, Gia Allemand, Justin "Rated R" Rego and crazy-eyes Michelle Money, and you've got the most combustible group of contestants ever to grace our screens.

Join us after the jump for our Top 5 most awkward moments from the season premiere. Can you guess how many involve Jake and Vienna?

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

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 4th 2011 9:45AM
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 FoodStop everything you are doing and watch this trailer for 'Famous Food.' Why? Because it's an epic train wreck and if this trailer is any indication, this series will be reality TV gold.

The celebs behind it all? Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, Ashley Dupre, DJ Paul and Juicy J from the Three 6 Mafia and 'Sopranos' actor Vincent Pastore.

The cast members are competing for a partnership stake in the restaurant with the Dolce Group.

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.

Jake Pavelka to Look for Love Once More on ABC's 'Bachelor Pad'

Jake PavelkaMaybe the third time will be the charm for Jake Pavelka.

The airline pilot has signed on as a contestant on ABC's 'Bachelor Pad,' the vaguely incestuous dating show comprised solely of 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' castoffs that will air its second season later this summer.

Entertainment Weekly reports that filming has begun on 'Bachelor Pad,' and Pavelka was spotted out on a TV date with 'Bachelor' Season 15 contestant Jackie Gordon.

This will be Pavelka's third time competing on an ABC dating show. He wasn't right for Jillian Harris on the fifth season of 'The Bachelorette,' but he got another shot at televised love when he became the fourteenth 'Bachelor.' Unfortunately, he didn't find the one after all and ended his engagement with Vienna Girardi a year ago.

Mr. Pavelka played a mean dating show dude who was being sued for "intentionally inflicting emotional harm" upon a female contestant. ... Of course, in real life, some might argue that Jake has also done the same thing.
