Jenny McCarthy sure knows how to show her appreciation to the troops. When it came time to kiss someone at midnight, the "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" co-host grabbed a member of the Navy for a big fat smooch.

It was only later that McCarthy, who was in a relationship with Jim Carrey until 2010, learned that her sailor's name was Benjamin. "I think I'm in love," she said. For the record, he's single -- and she rated the kiss an "11."

This is the third year McCarthy has helped host the live New Year's countdown. In 2012, she celebrated the new year by kissing an off-duty policeman. Who should McCarthy target next year?
