But don’t count on Paula Abdul or John Stamos, friends. The fleet-footed twosome (who also used to date!) are opting out. Paula turned down a $1,000,000 offer while John took to his Twitter page to put to bed any rumors he’d take the stage. “I’d put my foot in my mouth faster than John Mayer,” he wrote March 1.

But we did find out after tonight’s Bachelor finale that Jake Pavelka will be the 11th contestant! Hooray for ABC network synergy!

As for host Samantha Harris‘ replacement, well, the numbers have dwindled down to two potential ladies: former Spice Girl Mel B and Brooke Burke. The hot mamas will learn along with the rest of the world tonight how it’s all going to shake down. Keep close to for the latest!
