Jake Pavelka, former Bachelor, has admitted to trying just about anything to find his perfect match. He went on The Bachelor after all. Jake, 32, even admitted to trying out Match.com:
“I’ve tried Match.com.Â It is really hard to meet people, and the reason it’s hard to meet people is timing. You don’t know where people are! Did they just come out of a relationship, are they completely closed off emotionally, or have they had a whole line of really bad breakups?”
He said the best part of finding someone on a reality show is the “little adventure”:
“The one thing the producers ensure is that everybody is in a good place personally, unless they’re in a current relationship — and that has happened. That isn’t supposed to happen, and it’s those people who are there strictly for selfish reasons — career ambitions. To be on The Bachelor just to be famous, well, that’s not the way you want to do it. I’ve watched three seasons now and America gets wrapped around the axle when you go on there to just be on TV. America wants to see the romance and in the end they expect that commitment to come true.”
Jake famously broke things off with Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi on national television. But he says he’s:
“still looking for someone to be romantic, passionate and protective with, someone who is kind and I can trust. The hard part for me is dating women who have a pre-conceived notion of who I am. I’m not ‘Jake The Bachelor.’ I’m just Jake. I’m just a guy who was on a television show.”
Jake is a little too sensitive for my taste. Hot? Yes. Smart? Eh. Gay? Definitely. Talk amongst yourselves.
