Pete Wentz Is Coming To Oxygen Very Soon!

By Matt Muro

You may (or may not) recall we announced that Pete Wentz will be hosting "Best Ink 2" this spring. We're happy to report the show has wrapped! Upon first thought, you may think a rock star is an odd choice to host a reality tattoo competition show. But emo and hardcore go with tattoos like peanut butter and jelly (or maybe like Bad Girls and pop-offs). The Oxygen Press department puts it like this:

Combining his raw musical talent, unique personal style and love for tattoos, Pete Wentz has been tapped to host the new season of "Best Ink."  Best known for his musical accomplishments with Fall Out Boy, Wentz will help guide the contestants through the competition and serve as a passionate and business-savvy role model.  "Best Ink" is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions.


What our trusty Press peeps did not mention is that Pete is also heavily tattooed. You may recall that Pete made waves a few years back after getting an unusual tattoo as the result of a bet: The face of his friend and Cobra Starship frontman Gabe Saporta. He's also no stranger to television, listing hosting gigs for MTV and an appearance on CSI: NY among his credits. 
So, let's recap. We have a rock star with TV experience and a sense of humor to host Best Ink 2. Should be a home run! Check back for more details soon and tune in this spring.
