PARTNER: Chelsie Hightower
PROFESSION: Pilot/Reality TV Personality
BACKGROUND: Sorry ladies, he's taken. As the handsome commercial pilot and most recent single guy looking for love on ABCís The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka has the reputation as an honest guy with an open heart. He has been a fan favorite since viewers were stunned when Jillian rejected him right before the hometown dates on the previous seasonís The Bachelorette.
With a positive outlook on the experience, Jake won over the hearts of many and met his match as he narrowed 25 lucky bachelorettes down to one this past season.
An accomplished pilot, Jake grew up in Denton, Texas and attended University of North Texas and Embry Engineering University for Aerospace Science. He became an airline captain flight instructor at 23. On his days off, he has fun flying acrobatic planes and woodworking at the home he owns near Dallas.
Now this handsome aviator had landed on the Dancing with the Stars stage. Ladies and Gentleman, please return your tray tables to their upright position and buckle up for a sexy ride as Bachelor Jake soars once more, this time on the dance floor.
