Nope, I'd say Paris is going to get that honor. I mean, its hard to say. We're only halfway through the decade but I think I'm pretty good at predicting this sort of thing.

Jessica's fame is topical. And while you might not be a fan, it is actually based on her talent. People started paying attention to her because she can sing. Now I'll grant that her being hot took her a lot farther than her voice or her acting ability. And I'll even say that I find her MUCH more attractive than Paris Hilton (whom I actually personally think is kinda ugly ). But this doesn't matter. I thought Bettie Page was TONS hotter than Marilyn Monroe. But Paris Hilton is essentially identified with sex. She is sex. From the tape to the hamburger commercial, she simply is symbolic of sex. Jessica's fame kinda ebbs and flows given the project she happens to be on at the moment. Does she have a TV show on? Has she dropped an album lately? Is she in a movie? While Jessica is a pop culture icon, she has to be doing something for us to pay attention to her.
Paris on the other hand, never really does anything. She's just Paris and that's worthy of attention. If Paris Hilton gets drunk in a bar and goes home with some guy, that's news, despite the fact that she does it all the time. Its a different kind of celebrity, and one that I think is going to make her memorable as being sexy for years and years and years to come.

Yes, watching DailyShow/Letterman/Leno/whoever monolouges is a pretty good way to get a lot of news and media reports, or at least the gist of them, condensed into a daily dosage of 5 minutes.
