  1. Well, looks like I won’t be watching New Girl anymore. Thanks for poisoning another good show, Munn!

  2. Lisa says:

    I haven’t like Olivia Munn since her Attack of the Show days. Some ladies are actually smart and funny without needing to draw attention to their racks.

  3. Amanda says:

    What happened to Andrae? He’s our little lamb.

  4. erin says:

    Ooooohhhh mmmyyyyy ggggoddddd. I am so obsessed with Olivia Munn these days. She is so incredibly hot. Unffff

  5. gdv says:

    Happy to hear PR All-stars is replacing the incredibly boring host from last time. Hopefully the new model/host will actually have a personality. And yay for Uli, Kayne, and Althea! Loved them on their seasons. Hopefully one of them wins this time around.

  6. Terri says:

    I do not remember Cassanova at all.

  7. Lauren says:

    I couldn’t stand Olivia Munn until I watched her on the Newsroom. I love her now, she is great. She won’t beat Lizzie Caplan though, she was great as Nick’s love interest last season.

  8. DeeKayTee says:

    Love Olivia Munn! Happy for her :-)

  9. Jesse says:
