The Bachelor Season 14 - Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

The Bachelor is an American competitive reality show broadcast on ABC in which a supposedly highly eligible single man makes his choice of the ideal partner from a number of female contestants. Season 14 was subtitled On The Wings of Love, presumably because it featured Jake Pavelka, a commercial pilot whose final decision rested with Vienna Girardi, a twenty-three year old marketing representative from Geneva, Florida. Season 14 of The Bachelor was the first to be telecast in high definition and ran from January 4, 2010 March 1, 2010.

The Bachelor Jake Pavelka

Born as Jacob Lynn Pavelka on January 27, 1978 in Dallas, Texas, Jake began taking flying lessons when he was just twelve. By 23 years of age, Pavelka was already an airline captain flight instructor and working with American Southeast Airlines. Pavelkas stint in the entertainment industry began with a few television commercials and programs produced locally in which he appeared under the name of Jake Landrum.

Pavelkas first major break in the world of showbiz came in May 2009 when he was called as one of the contestants of yet another ABC dating reality show, The Bachelorette, Season Five. In this show he vied with another twenty-nine men for the hand of Jillian Harris, an interior designer from Peace River, Alberta, Canada but was eliminated in the sixth episode. Pavelka was brought back by the ABC network to star in the title role of Season fourteen of The Bachelor and this time he had twenty-five women competing for his affections.

The winner Vienna Girardi

Calling herself, a huge daddys little girl, Vienna Girardi looked set to conquer another guys heart as sparks flew between her and The Bachelor Jake Pavelka in Season 14 of the dating reality show. Born in Orlando, Florida, Girardi claimed on the show to be spoilt rotten by her father wrecking the five cars he has given her - and have a great playmate in her pup Chloe. Girardi is apparently a graduate of the University of Central Florida and has a Bachelor's degree in Interpersonal Organizational Communications. However this attractive blonde came with more than her adequate share of past relationships. Girardi was engaged to her pastors son when she was a senior in high school but broke off later. However when her former fiance got married to someone else within a month, Girardi admitted eloping with another guy, Joshua William Riley, who she barely knew. The two ended up getting married but were quickly divorced four months later.

Apparently Girardis colorful past did not bother Pavelka too much and rather he was attracted to this bubbly and cheerful young woman, one who has had her share of fun and games and is not averse to doing more.

The winning couples interaction on the show

One of the first indications of the crackling chemistry between Pavelka and Girardi on the reality show was when the two went bungee jumping. This was also the occasion they shared their first kiss, hanging upside down, literally on top of the world. Pavelka expressed anxiety over bungee jumping, saying he and Vienna had "conquered a fear" together. That bungee jumping date was Girardi's ticket to Pavelka's heart and gave her an edge over other contestants in the early weeks of the show.

The fifth episode of the show saw Girardi going on a two-on-one date with Pavelka and another close contestant Gia to the Napa Valley. Here she got a little lost as she tried to find Jake when he went off to talk to Gia in private. Later Girardi did her best to live up to her naughty girl image as she appeared in Pavelkas room late at night with a bottle of wine. However Pavelka sent her away, rightly thinking that it would not be fair to the other girls.

Also when the couple took the cruise down Floridas waterway, it was quite evident that The Bachelor was fascinated by Girardis playful ways. Once Jake and Vienna got the boat going, he grabbed her legs and hauled them up on his lap. In fact Jake couldn't seem to keep his hands off from her and looked delighted to be with Vienna. Girardi responded by trying every trick in the flirting manual, including asking him if he knew how to pilot a boat.

That Pavelka would finally choose Girardi as his partner was also anticipated by his successful visit to Girardis hometown where he had a good time meeting her parents. Later as Pavelkas parents flew down to St Lucia, the contest was narrowed between Girardi and 25 year old Tenley Molzhan. Girardi seemed to slip momentarily because of the reputation she had of being difficult to get along with the other contestants on the show. However soon Girardi stole a march over her rival by cavorting in a live volcano with Pavelka. The chemistry between the two was undeniable and it hardly came as a surprise when in the season finale Pavelka gifted the final rose to Girardi and proposed marriage to her.

After the show

However barely a few months after becoming Americas favorite couple, Pavelka and Girardi had a messy break up in July last year which was aired in a television special during Season 6 of The Bachelorette. While Pavelka accused Girardi of cheating on him, the latter hinted that he was more interested in fame than in working at a relationship.

Whatever the reason for their breakup, both seemed to have moved on with their lives. Following the end of The Bachelor, Pavelka was named as one of the celebrity contestants for the tenth season of Dancing with the Stars though he and his partner Chelsie Hightower were the fifth to be eliminated. However Pavelka and then fiancee Girardi made a surprise appearance in a special episode on the dance show. On January 14, 2011, Pavelka made a guest-appearance on the long running soap series The Bold and the Beautiful. Girardi on the other hand has been linked to a series of men - from John Sala and Matt Nordgren to Bachelorette bad boy Wes Hayden - following her break up with Pavelka. Currently she is believed to be single and living in Los Angeles.

Jake Pavelka Promises Dramatic Season of The Bachelor

The Bachelor has not produced a successful marriage in 13 seasons (although to be fair, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney are threatening to break that barrier).

That doesn't stop new star Jake Pavelka from believing in the process, but the Dallas airline pilot concedes that some of what transpired on the show was tough.

"I can tell you from the get-go, it is a very rocky and dramatic season," Jake tells USA Today. "Some of the things that happened, drama-wise, just floored me."

But did he find love? "I don't want to ruin the ending," The Bachelor says, adding, "I stayed true to myself from the very beginning. I went in and was very honest."

"I said if I find love I'll come out engaged. I didn't promise a ring at the end and stayed true to myself. I didn't necessarily do what everybody wanted me to."

Jake Pavelka says that "Half way through the entire journey, I still had no idea whatsoever. It was cast extremely well for my temperament. I had a lot of romance."

The 31-year-old notes that he personally is short on scandals: "I don't have a girlfriend, I'm not married and don't have 8 mistresses - pardon me, Tiger Woods."

"Stuff like cheating and shady activity? ... Everyone has skeletons in their closet, but if I could think of anything that I thought would shock everybody, I would get it out there right now and confess it to you, but I can't think of anything to say."

Give it time, Jake. If there are no skeletons, ABC will plant some.

6 Shocking Things Jake Pavelka Just Revealed About The Bachelor

Jake Pavelka was at the forefront of one of The Bachelor's most notorious breakups and now, he's revealing behind-the-scenes details from the show.

In case you need a refresher, Jake was the leading man on season 14. His final two women were the not-so-liked Vienna Girardi and America's sweetheart Tenley Molzahn. Ultimately, he proposed to Vienna and the two were in pure engaged bliss. Fast forward to a month in and their relationship started going downhill, and soon enough they were practically enemies. Jake was upset that Vienna ran to the tabloids about their personal relationship, but she just wanted to be heard in what was described as an emotionally abusive relationship.

In late May of this year, Jake appeared on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast, hosted by Bachelor alumni Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti. It was there that Jake revealed some never-before-heard info.

He had two rings in his pocket that fateful day. "I don't know if anybody knows this, I had both engagement rings in my pocket at the time of the engagement," Jake said. When asked why, he said, "Because I didn't know what I wanted to do. What I really wanted to do was to continue to date both of them and see how it went." We knew that Jake had selected a ring for each woman, but getting down on one knee while having another ring for another woman in your pocket is a bit unnerving. He could feel pressure from Bachelor Nation. "At the end, I wasn't ready to be engaged," Jake said. "The producers were like, 'Whatever you want to do is fine with us, you just need to probably decide whether you want to be engaged or not.'" He admitted that he didn't feel forever with either woman. When asked why he just didn't propose, he said that he thought about it, but that decision didn't play out well for Brad Womack when he didn't pull out a ring at the end of season 11. "America travels on this big journey with you. When you're upset, they're upset. When you're happy and you have a great date, it's like America has a great date," Jake said. "They expect the fairy-tale ending. That is definitely an expectation at the end of The Bachelor."

His family was not pleased. "[My mom] would have said at the time my picker was broken," Jake said. "My parents loved Tenley." He is still heartbroken. "I always wanted it to be Gia [Allemand]. I thought Gia was just an amazing person, and I still do," Jake said about the brunette beauty who was in the final three and later died by suicide in 2013. "I wanted it to be her so bad, but she had so much hurt in her life." He used his Fantasy Suite time to get ring preferences. During Jake's overnight dates, he asked Vienna, Tenley, and Gia what settings they wanted on an engagement ring. He made mental notes and picked out rings for Vienna and Tenley with the settings they liked. He partially based his decision on who he didn't want to see as The Bachelorette. "I had made my choice based on which one I could stomach watching come back as [The Bachelorette], and I said, I'm gonna have a harder time watching Vienna, not having seen that through, than enjoying Tenley's season next year." Although he had a feeling that he was going to choose Vienna, he admitted that he kept waffling.

These aren't exactly the happy-go-lucky details we would hope for from The Bachelor. But you've probably thought about these exact points before. Now we can't help wondering . . . are all former and current contestants holding secrets as disheartening as these?
