Criminal Sentence 40: Read What You Write

From a fascinating article on who was chosen for the list of hottest bachelor:

"Bruce Willis, who has been linked to model Emma Hemming, landed him a spot too."

This should say either" landed a spot" or "landed himself a spot." It seems that this sentence was edited but not proofread. Editing is good, but proofreading is even better.
