Daily Dish: Meet TV’s New Bachelor, Jake Pavelka
Jake Pavelka, who was eliminated on last season’s The Bachelorette, is now ABC’s new Bachelor.
Hubba hubba! Hunky Jake Pavelka is the new object of affection for ABC’s The Bachelor.
Jake will have 25 hopeful women competing for his love on the series, set to air in early 2010. Jake’s already familiar with how the show works because he was a contestant himself on last season’s The Bachelorette, where he was eliminated by Jillian Harris.
“I’ve dated some really amazing girls, but I’ve never been successful at finding that one girl,” Jake says. “I saw how the whole thing comes together, the process with Jillian. I saw how the process works and I believe in it. That’s a unique way to meet somebody.”
When it comes to what Jake’s looking for in a woman, let’s just say being pretty won’t be enough for this stud. “I have a lot of energy,” he says. “I love salsa dancing. Country dancing on a Thursday night in Dallas is really fun, too. I enjoy working with my hands, creating or building something, landscaping and doing garden work. Even if [a woman] didn’t enjoy doing the things that I do, I would want her to be a part of them because I love them so much.”
So basically, he wants a woman who can get dirty working in the yard with cuts on her hands from building a birdhouse and then be able to look stunning in high heels and a sexy dress for a night of salsa dancing? Good luck with that. (People)
