The Maxim Hot 100 list was mostly released today. The annual rundown of famous female eye candy sends men to the Internet each and every year. The top 10 won't be revealed until Wednesday, however. So we got to thinking — and studiously researching — who wasn't included among the first ninety gorgeous ladies.
10: Jordanna Brewster. She's fast, she's furious and she's graced their pages with her hotness before. The dark-haired dark horse makes summer even hotter at #10.
9: Gisele Bundchen. Pros: amazingly gorgeous and successful international lingerie supermodel. Cons: already married to the mister wonderful of the sports world, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Her marital vows keep her held down here at #9.
For the most part, we can't argue with People's 100 Most Beautiful List for 2009. We certainly do think that guys like Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron are beautiful — no, actually, hot. And let's not forget dreamy.
And, yes, we cannot argue with the fact that Angelina Jolie, Frieda Pinto and Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato are very beautiful, strong women with amazing careers and boyfriends.
When we initially glanced at the list, we saw the name Jonas and thought, "Well, obviously, the Jonases are beautiful and totally deserve to be on this list. They are an uber-successful pop act, and it would be strange if they didn't."
But there was one thing that was not rational about this: The editors over at People may have forgotten a Jonas Brother! And, no we don't mean 8-year-old Frankie. Nick and Joe managed to make the list, but, the eldest Jonas, Kevin, didn't. It just seems weird that only two thirds of the world's cutest pop act would be named Most Beautiful.
Well, you know what? Kevin, you made our list. You always do. To us, every Jonas Brother is beautiful.

When most people lighten their hair, it doesn't make headlines. But when you're Kim Kardashian, going blond is a big deal. The notoriously brunette reality star showed off her lighter locks this weekend and even took to her Twitter page to celebrate the new look.
"I'm loving my new blond hair!" she Tweeted on Sunday. But just when we thought Kardashian had gone all Lindsay Lohan on us and abandoned her trademark hair color to have more fun as a blonde, it turned out the transformation was just a farce.
Yes, Kim's new do was just a wig, and she cleared up all the speculation this morning on her blog.
Could Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner be dating? Well, they are both in Vancouver, British Columbia, right now shooting films (Selena's working on "Ramona and Beezus" and Taylor is, of course, working on "Twilight" sequel "New Moon"), and the pair were spotted hanging out together at a coffee shop.
Don't believe us? Well, LaineyGossip.com has a bunch of pics showing the pair leaving the place. OK, so they're not ever actually in the same photos at the same time, but they both happen to be with the same bodyguard mere moments after one another and they both happen to get into the same car once they've attempted to dodge the photographers.

Michelle Trachtenberg just isn't able to pick between Zac Efron and Chace Crawford in a dreamy-guy competition — which to us, seems crazy. (We pick both!)
Despite her inability to pick between those two heartthrobs, we do have to respect her taste in men: "That is a fantastic question!" the "17 Again" and "Gossip Girl" star told MTV News when asked to choose between the two, before throwing in a write-in candidate. "I'm going to go with Colin Firth. He is Dreamy McDreamy a lot!"
Late last year, Jared Leto surprised pretty much everyone here in the MTV Newsroom by sending us a box of cupcakes from NYC bakery Sugar Sweet Sunshine.
It was his way of saying 'thanks' for a story we had done about his band, 30 Seconds To Mars, and their ongoing lawsuit with their former label, Virgin/EMI, and, to be honest, it was pretty amazing ... and not just because he included some red velvet cupckaes (those things rule). No, it was because, as one MTV Staffer put it -- "Jordan-freaking-Catalano sent us cupcakes!"
Needless to say, it was the kind of thing that doesn't happen every day ... or at least, that's what we thought. Because, at around lunchtime Thursday, Leto sent us even more cupcakes. Why? Well, read on. Read More...

Val Emmich — a.k.a. Jesse from "Ugly Betty" and Liz Lemon's much younger boyfriend in the "Cougars" episode of "30 Rock" — kicked off his concert tour in New York earlier this month, and we caught up with him before the show.
The New Jersey native is a bit of a modern-day renaissance man: He's an actor, musician and recently completed his first novel. He recalled the moment when he felt his musical career was taking hold. "It was when you're not just playing for you and your buddies, and there's people coming to see you who you don't know, and you're like 'Whoa, who's that person?' " Despite the fact that he's been making music for the past 15 years, he said, "It wasn't until I got my first record deal a couple years ago that I said, 'Oh my god, I can call myself a musician!' I can literally say that I make money doing that. So that was the moment." Laughing, he added, "I still feel like a garage band."
Check out some video of the Val after the jump! Read More...
