Bachelor Jake Pavelka: “I Believe In This Process”
Last season, Jake Pavelka was one of our favorite guys on The Bachelorette. Everything about him made us smile - from his great abs to his pilot uniform to his attempt at rescuing Jillian Harris from certain doom with Wes. Keep reading to find out what kind of girl Jake is on the prowl for this season…
So what exactly is Jake looking for? “I’m not after the most attractive girl in the world, but she’ll be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,” Jake told ET. “Someone that’s romantic and compassionate.”
Even though it didn’t work out between he and Jillian Harris, Jake has a lot of high hopes for this season. “I really do believe in the process…so I think I’m gonna come out with a fiancée,” he added.
Jake’s parents, Jim and Sallie, told PEOPLE that Jake needs an adventurous woman. “He likes a girl that is spontaneous,” Sallie said. “The way he put it to me, he would like a girl that can work in the yard and then put on a pretty dress and go out to dinner.” His dad Jim added, “He likes scuba diving and snow skiing.”
As for Jake’s take on the adventure thing, he added, “I fly on the weekends, play golf, go to a movie, but I’m not a couch potato. That’s the one thing I have to make these girls understand — I have a lot of energy. 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.”
The new season of The Bachelor will premiere in early 2010 on ABC.
