The Bachelor: Love Takes Flight - 1/4/10

Recommended Posts

I knew it. They chose the least interesting guy from The Bachelorette to be the new Bachelor. Jake the tattletale Pilot will be putting me to sleep each Monday night until he chooses someone as boring as himself to make his wife. Of course, they'll never go through with it, like always.

Why couldn't it be Reed? Or Tiptyn? Or, god forbid . . . someone new?

This is worse than just a re-tread. It's a boring re-tread. You don't get any more "aw shucks" milktoast than Jake.

I looked and didn't see a thread for this new Bachelor season. I'm sure the mods will move it to it's appropriate spot.

The Bachelor: Jake Pavelka Gets A Second Chance At Love

October 14, 2009 01:00:18 by Britteny Elrick

On a very dramatic (but when is it not?) season of The Bachelorette, Jake Pavelka got his heart broken by Jillian Harris. However, that didn

I'm already getting a little nauseous. I think it's going to be a looong season, with Jake trying to prove to us all that he has a 'wild side'.

Hang on to your hats girls -- some crazy times ahead! :rolleyes:

I'm also a little worried that they will pick a lot of 'pageant' types for him.

I don't think I can take it.

:disappointed:

Why oh why oh why do I keep watching this show? I KNOW that it will probably be boring with Jake but that won't stop me from tuning in every week!

I don't think I'll watch. If I can get past the first show, I'm usually able to ignore the whole season.

I don't think I can take all the talk there's bound to be about morals, integrity, etc... all by people who are taking part in one of the cheesiest, sleaziest, reality shows.

Oh, I know there are worse. I've seen 'Rock of love' a few times, but that one doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is.

The Bachelor series tries to paint this pretty romantic picture, and about the only difference is, it is not an aging rock star, and the girls don't wear their skankiness like a badge of honor, like on Rock of Love.

They are less obvious about it, but it's basically the same thing. And they may not have spandex roller derby, like on rock of love, but they have to write poems, or sing songs, or other silly things.

If they are taking turns shoving their tongues down a guys throat, I guess it doesn't matter if they are wearing a tube top and hot pants, or an evening gown.

Ivy I am agreeing with you. If they had the show and had a no kiss rule I might watch. The love connection just seems more phony each season I watch.

JAKE PAVELKA GETS A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE IN "THE BACHELOR: ON THE WINGS OF LOVE," WHEN ABC'S HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES PREMIERES MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 2010

[11.04.09 - 12:34 PM]

For the First Time Ever "The Bachelor" Will Be Broadcast in High Definition

Jake Pavelka is out to prove that nice guys don't always finish last in love. The handsome commercial pilot from Dallasand America's most hopeful romanticbegins his own bid for true love, choosing from among 25 bachelorettes, when "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love" premieres MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 2010 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. This will be the 14th edition of ABC's hit romance reality series and, for the first time in the history of the series, "The Bachelor" will be broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with stereo sound.

Ever since Jake, 31, shared a magical one-on-one date with Bachelorette Jillian Harris to see Martina McBride, millions of women have had their "Top Gun" fantasies about him. A fan favorite for his reputation as an honest guy with an open heart not to mention his good looks -- viewers were stunned when Jillian rejected Jake right before the hometown dates on last season's "The Bachelorette." But women were drawn to him even more when Jake returned of his own accord in the next episode to protect Jillian from men who were not there for the right reasons. Jake who already knew Jillian would not take him back -- freely shared and showed his emotions.

Jake's fairytale-like experience falling for Jillian made him confident that he can find the love of his life on "The Bachelor." Now it's his time. Jake knows himself well enough to know that he's not made to live alone. He just needs to find the right woman -- his best friend and soul mate and that's whom he'll marry. Searching for a woman who is intelligent, confident, energetic and spontaneous, he admits that he can't wait for fatherhood.

Fortunate to discover his passion at a young age, Jake started taking flying lessons at age 12. An accomplished pilot, he became an airline captain flight instructor at 23. On his days off, he has fun flying acrobatic planes, taking dance lessons and woodworking at the home he owns near Dallas. His parents have had a long and happy marriage, and it seems to run in the family, as Jake also has two happily married brothers older brother Jason and younger brother Matt and two nieces.

Jake grew up in Denton, Texas and attended University of North Texas and Embry Engineering University for Aerospace Science.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.

By Andrea Reiher

December 16, 2009 10:24 AM

Later today we'll have an interview with "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka wherein he talks about seeing Jillian and Ed again and that he made no promises on proposing at the end of "The Bachelor" if he didn't feel it. But for now, let's find out who his potential partners are.

Alexa, 25, an entrepreneur from Galloway, OH

Ali, 25, an advertising account manager from Williamstown, MA

Ashleigh, 25, an account manager from North Potomac, MD

Ashley, 29, a teacher from Pittsburgh, PA

Caitlyn, 24, a spokesmodel from Winfield, IL

Channy, 29, a mortgage loan officer from Santa Rosa, CA

Christina, 25, a restaurant manager from San Diego, CA

Corrie, 23, a wardrobe consultant from Kissimmee, FL

Elizabeth, 29, a nanny from Imperial, NE

Elizabeth, 29, a Captain in the Air National Guard, from Washington, DC

Ella, 30, a hair stylist from Lafollette, TN

Emily, 23, a fit model from West Chester, OH

Gia, 26, a swimsuit model from New York, NY

Jessie, 25, a cosmetic sales manager from Oakville, Ontario, Canada

Kathryn, 25, a corporate flight attendant from Lexington, KY

Kimberly, 24, an NBA dancer from Norman, OK

Kirsten, 25, a waitress from Aurora, CO

Michelle, 26, an office manager from Anaheim, CA

Rozlyn, 28, a model/makeup artist from Richmond, VA

Sheila, 25, a commercial pilot from San Juan Capistrano, CA

Stephanie, 24, a dance teacher from Morris, IL

Tiana, 31, a medical technician from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Valishia, 32, a homemaker from Carlsbad, CA

Vienna, 23, a marketing representative from Sanford, FL

Channy, Tenley and Vienna are definitely the best names on the list. We also like the age range (23 to 31) and the fact that there are two Canadian ladies on the list. Canada gave us Jillian, maybe it can give Jake his new lady love.

'The Bachelor's' Jake Pavelka: The women were 'very high caliber'

By Andrea Reiher

December 16, 2009 12:40 PM

Jake Pavelka's season of "The Bachelor" is taking off in just under three weeks. What did this pilot have to say about it?

Fasten your seatbelts, "Bachelor" fans. The passenger manifest has been released and the 14th season is ready for takeoff. Are you ready to fly the friendly skies with Jake Pavelka?

What surprised you the most about being on the other side? Do you feel more empathy for Jillian?

I definitely have a new respect for what Jillian and Jason Mesnick and other past bachelors have gone through. I don't want to say you're judging anybody, but it almost feels like that.

Did you find someone special on the show?

I don't want to ruin the ending but I will say I stayed true to myself. From the very beginning, I went in and said very honestly if I find love, I'll come out engaged. If I don't find love and don't have that feeling, then I won't. I didn't promise a ring at the end of this and I stayed true to myself and didn't necessarily do what everybody wanted me to do.

What were the girls like?

All 25 women were absolutely amazing, very high caliber. All walks of life. Just incredible journeys. I'm sitting here just running different girls through my head and they were all amazing, really amazing.

The track record of the show is less than stellar, so were you confident going in that you would find somebody?

If I wasn't confident at the beginning, then why would I go through the journey in the first place? It's kind of like getting set up by one of your good friends. The producers and the casting department, they know me. They really do know me and psychologically they know what type of girl I'm going to be attracted to and that's the way they cast. If there's just not that magical spark, it's never gonna work.

What was your reaction when you were approached to be the next bachelor?

I did a back-flip on my front lawn. I was so excited. I was just really flattered and humbled to be considered and have it actually happen. I still can't believe that all of this happened.

Everybody's saying you're the hottest bachelor yet. What is your reaction to that? Do you think you are the hottest bachelor so far?

No, I don't. My reaction is that's really sweet of everybody. I hadn't heard that. I don't know that that's true. The show tends to ask good-looking people and I don't think I'm by any means top of the scale.

How has your attitude changed this time around?

I formulated my opinions about the show when I went through with Jillian. I saw the way they cast for her temperament and her love language and what they knew about her and it worked. Jill and Ed are such an incredibly perfect match. They're so perfect for each other, it's almost like a shot in the dark. The [man] that makes all this possible, Mike Fleiss, has such a passion for putting all this together and creating a couple. Just how much passion they have for this journey. I went into it on cloud 9 and basically came out the same way.

Did you expect to be such a fan favorite when you went on "The Bachelorette?"

No, no at all. I knew a little about Jillian from Jason's season but I did that same back-flip when I found out she was going to be the bachelorette. I went on there to see if we were a good match. I had no idea how I'd be received.

What made you decide to do the Bachelor? Was there any one deciding factor?

The one deciding factor was how well Jill and Ed were matched up. Casting and producers knew Ed really well, they knew and loved Jillian with a mad passion. The way it feels when you're going through this journey is like your best friend that knows you setting you up with the perfect girl. In this case, it happens to be 25. You know how a lot of times in life, your best friend knows you but also knows this girl over here and they make a match and it ends up working. That's exactly what I saw in Jill's season and that was the determining factor.

Jillian very famously had some steamy scenes during her seasons that she said she had to apologize to her dad for. Are you in the same position to apologize to your parents for any steamy scenes?

In a normal dating relationship, would you get into a hot tub in a swimsuit with a girl? Yes. I've done that in past relationships. Why would I not do that now and give the relationship every chance I can? I don't think I have anything to apologize for. I'm very confident with how I handled myself on the show.

What qualities were you looking for in a woman?

I was looking for someone that is adventurous and intelligent, athletic, compassionate, romantic, something that I see that is lacking in relationships these days is finding a girl that is protective. When you bundle all that together, that's what makes it.

ABC has released that Ed and Jillian make an appearance on the season premiere. Is this the first time you've seen them since "The Bachelorette" wrapped? How was that?

It is the first time I've seen them. Getting to see Jill and Ed together, they complement each other, it's unbelievable. It was really a testimony to me to see such a successful relationship because they had some pretty hard mountains that they had to climb getting everything started. But to answer your question, it was really good to have them around and be a part of this season.

You also famously came back to confront Wes on Jillian's season. Have you spoken with him or seen him since the show wrapped?

I have not. I wish the guy well, I don't know that we'll ever be the best of friends. He's a talented artist and I hope he does well. Other than maybe just coincidentally bumping into him somewhere, we're probably not going to do a lot of hanging out.

So there you have it. It sounds like Jake had a great experience. We can't wait to see "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love," premiering Monday, Jan. 4 on ABC.

I hope the "affair" happened after she got ditched by him. What a shame to ABC if it happened while she was still a contender.

And thanks Marty and Sugar. It sure is an entertaining show! :D
