Jenny McCarthy sure likes her men in uniform, and who can blame her. After ringing in 2012 by making out with a handsome cop, when the ball dropped for 2013, she was kissing a soldier in naval uniform.

Locking lips with strangers might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Jenny is having her cake – and kissing eating it.

As last year, Jenny was co-hosting ABC’s “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve” with Ryan Seacrest. The soldier won a competition to get to kiss Jenny, so just showing up, handsome and in uniform would have probably not been enough.

After the smooch, Jenny asked him – Benjamin is his name – how high he’d rate the kiss, to which he replied it was “probably a 10.”

“Oh, I’d say it’s an 11!” the former glamour girl answered back.
