It's official: Jake Pavelka joins 'Bachelor Pad' -- FIRST PHOTO


ABC has confirmed the worst-kept secret in guilty pleasure reality TV casting: former Bachelor Jake Pavelka will be competing for 15 more minutes of fame (and $250,000) when Bachelor Pad returns for season 2 on August 8. Click through to see the pilot-turned-reality TV fixture in action on the season’s first date.

Last night Jake took Jackie Gordon (from season 15 of The Bachelor) out on the town for a romantic (maybe?) dinner date at LA’s El Capitan theater. While Jackie didn’t make the final cut with her season’s Bachelor, Brad Womack, perhaps she and the square-jawed pilot will have more to talk about. (Actually, she’d probably have more to talk about with a bowl of pudding… but I digress.) ABC has yet to announce the remaining cast members on Bachelor Pad, but if all the rumors are true that Jake’s former fiancée Vienna and her new boyfriend Kasey (a.k.a. “guard and protect your heart” tattoo guy) have signed on, then it’s definitely going to be the most train-wrecky dramatic season… ever!

    It will be a train wreck and I will be the sucker who watches it even though I will proclaim loudly to all my friends, “No way will I watch that trash!” I need a hobby or something.

    • Jenn

      LOL…sadly I will do the same.

    • Amy

      Ditto :S

      • Marci

        Someone I know in HR at an airline was contacted by him before his first BACHELORETTE season. He wrote that he was going to be a big star and they should hire him as a pilot and get lots of publicity. HR thought it was a joke until the series aired.

      • Jen

        Lol, because yeah, that’s who I want flying my plane – The Bahelor!

      • Carla Houston

        @Marci: it’s still a joke. He’s not a big star, except in his own mind. But I’m like Jenn – I will watch this crapfest and not tell anyone, because it is such a train wreck I cannot stop!

    • Pattimac

      LOL, Jennifer! Me, tooooo!!

  • Jerome

    Go away Jake!

    • Andy

      Go away stupid reality TV shows! They are dumbing this country down even more than it already is.

  • Lindsay

    This show is such a train wreck, yet if you’re a Bachelor fan, you can’t NOT watch…

    • RaRa

      Not true. I love The Bachelor and The Bachelorette but I can’t stand Bachelor Pad. I may or may not read the recaps on it this time around.

  • Jethro

    Best Kept Secret! I don’t think so, he and all the others from this show will do anything to keep their 15 miutes of fame. Smart viewers will tune out!

  • Suze

    Not this dude again, please.

  • Lizzie

    I can’t stand that guy. Didn’t watch him on the Bachelor, but saw in on DWTS and his ego was huge, when he first started talking to the dancer and was so condescending and rude, I realized that is who he really is, a d**k. He comes off as so fake. I hope they can manage to film him in raw a-hold moments so he is outed! lol!

    • Mellissa

      They’ve already done that. See: Vienna/Jake break up interview.

  • Zeke

    Seriously…hoiw desperate is this guy for attention?!

  • mags

    I agree with Jerome….”go away Jake”!!!

  • Isla

    he’s never going to be able to redeem himself in the eyes of the public. I can’t imagine how painful it must be to be him.

  • Juneau

    Though I could definitely live without ever seeing Jake’s face again, BP is my fav guilty pleasure. Glad Vienna found someone before having to face him again.

    • Jeri

      @Juneau – she did find someone, but look who it is, the idiot who tattoed a rose on his forearm/wrist to prove he was there for the “right” reasons. Yikes! Here’s hoping Jake gets the boot pronto! I have no qualms stating I love BP, but that’s because I am using an alias…

  • Blades

    Jake is definately a twirp and I can’t stand to watch him on TV BUT Vienna would try the patience of any man. As soon the thrill of those long legs and blond hair wore off, I am sure Jake, or almost any guy would get sick and tired of putting up with her needy, whiny, self pitying drama.

    • Mellissa

      Good thing Kacey is there to guard and protect her heart.

  • tomm

    On a VH1 dating show, ‘Daisy of Love’, they had the guys fight in a boxing ring, with protective gear. I’d love to see Jake get knocked out by a “Kypton” type!

  • lo

    noooooooooo! I actually watched this show for mindless entertainment. Don’t know if I can do it now.

  • LiLi

    The only person more obnoxious than Jake is witchy Jackie, whose nose almost touches her chin. Remember how evil she was in the tell-all segment? On second thought…those two deserve each other.

    • Sandi

      Ugh! I forgot about Jackie (and would have like to have kept it that way). That girl is ugly inside and out.

  • Kat

    My apologies to Prince William, but with the button-down shirt, the toothy expression, and the paparazzi-ish photo, I assumed it was the future King of England in the photo for a second. Ugh, I’m still irritated he (and various other assorted “reality stars”) invaded my beloved DWTS.
