ABC The Bachelor 14 Jake Pavelka

The 14th season of The Bachelor premieres on January 4 at 8 PM on ABC, and ABC has now released the photos of the 25 bachelorettes vying for the love of Jake Pavelka.

The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love will begin with the 31-year-old commercial pilot from Dallas, TX arriving at the same Malibu mansion where he first met Jillian Harris, who rejected him during The Bachelorette’s fifth season earlier this year. As we reported earlier, Jillian and fiance, Ed Swiderski, will be on hand to assist Jake in picking the right women on the premier episode.

In a new interview with USA Today, Jake promises a very dramatic and rocky season. “I can tell you from the get-go, it is a very rocky and dramatic season,” said Jake. “Some of the things that happened on the show, drama-wise, floored me.”

The question on everyone’s mind is did he find love? But did he find love? “I don’t want to ruin the ending,” he says. But adds, “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. I didn’t promise a ring at the end of this and stayed true to myself. I didn’t necessarily do what everybody wanted me to.”

Jake, 31, reveals that picking the right woman was a bit tougher than he anticipated, “Half way through the entire journey, I still had no idea whatsoever. It was cast so well for my temperament. I had a lot of romance. My heart went out to multiple women.”

Interestingly, missing from the cast is Brittney Gammel. Brittney is the 25-year-old Learjet pilot from Franklin, TN, who had been cast to be on the show. That is until she prematurely revealed back in October that Jake had been chosen to be the new Bachelor. The problem was ABC had yet to formally make the announcement and was planning to do so 2 weeks later during a DWTS episode.

Melissa Rycroft may have been jilted by The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick, but she has now found her happily ever after with new husband, Tye Strickland.

Melissa opens up in the latest issue of InTouchWeekly about her wedding details and Tye. The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant and GMA correspondent married Tye, a Dallas-based insurance executive, on Saturday, Dec. 12 in a romantic ceremony in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Invited were over 200 friends and family. It was their second ceremony as the first took place in the U.S. to make sure their union was legal.

Melissa tells InTouch magazine she was “fine” until ‘Here Comes the Bride’ started playing. “I think everything hit me at once. My dad started to walk down the aisle, and I just stopped him. I grabbed his arm, and I was like, ‘Hold on,’ and I started crying. And I saw Tye, and bless his heart, he had these big tears in his eyes, too. It was very emotional,” Melissa explains.

Tye was also taken back, saying: “When I saw her, I just lost my breath – like I was in a football game and had the wind knocked out of me … I’ve never felt that way in my whole life, and I just couldn’t help it. She was the most gorgeous bride I’ve ever seen in my life, and it was amazing. It was absolutely perfect.”

Melissa Rycroft is officially a married woman. The 26-year-old Good Morning America correspondent was dumped on national TV  earlier this year by The Bachelor winner – Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to her on the finale, and then later changed his mind. All that drama is now in the past for Melissa as she exchanged vows Saturday afternoon in Mexico with fellow Texan – Tye Strickland.

“Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he’s my partner forever. We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world,” Rycroft told In Touch Weekly. “I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!”

Melissa got married in a beautiful Alfred Angelo gown. Tony Dovolani, Melissa’s dance partner on Dancing With The Stars and the Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris were on the guest list. Both Melissa and Tye dated on and off for a couple of years before finally reuniting earlier this year. We certainly wish them the best.

Molly-malaney-engagement-ring

In a new interview with SeattlePI, Molly Malaney opens up about her new life post The Bachelor.  Molly talks about her recent engagement to Jason Mesnick, dealing with her new found fame, and settling down in Seattle with Jason, and his son Ty. Molly reveals that she and Jason are planning to get married within the next year.

Excerpts from Molly’s Interview below -

On Wedding Date – No. We haven’t had even a minute to think about the wedding. We haven’t even had one discussion about it. Now that things are slowing down, I think we’ll start talking. There are so many different factors: Is it going to be on TV? Is it going to be part of a magazine spread? Or are we just going to do it ourselves? It will definitely be in the next year.

On Dealing With Tabloid Attention – It’s amazing, seeing how personally invested people get. A lot of it, first of all, just with all the backlash that happened after the show, it was like, “Hello, people. It’s a television show!” Even today there’s still a small group of people who are still upset about it and still have animosity toward Jason and it’s just so strange to me.

I can’t say I regret going on the show or going through all the tabloid drama because I met the person I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, which makes it worth it. And I think a lot of our success comes from having gone through all that negativity.  I mean, it sucked. It totally sucked going through it, but it brought us a lot closer.

On Life With Jason – We are complete opposites. Oh my God. Two totally separate people. But it works. We disagree about any little thing. What to eat, how to rearrange the living room. But at the end of the day we love going to bed together and waking up next to each other and just being with each other. So our personalities definitely complement themselves. But he is so carefree and easygoing, doesn’t let a thing bother him. Everything just slides off. And he is such a glass-half-full kind of person. He always sees the positive side of everything. Whereas I am very square and safe and play by the rules, I’m very organized, and very consistent, so yeah — we’re very different. But we pull each other in the right direction. He eases me up a little bit and I kind of wrangle him in.

Jake Pavelka was officially announced as the new Bachelor during an October episode of Dancing With The Stars. Entertainment Tonight has now confirmed that the new season of “The Bachelor” will premier Monday, January 4, 2010 at 8pm on ABC.

The 31-year-old commercial pilot will meet the 25 bachelorettes who hope to win his heart. Jake is looking forward to finding the right woman to share his live with. According to Jake, she must be intelligent, confident, energetic and spontaneous. He also admits to looking forward to being a father.

During “The Bachelorette”, several fans fell in love with Jake during his solo date with Jillian Harris because of his reputation of being a honest guy with an open heart. It doesn’t hurt that he is also good looking. Most viewers were astounded when Jillian rejected Jake right before the hometown dates on last season’s Bachelorette.

Now Jake gets to meet and choose one of these 25 women to be his best friend and soul mate.

Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa had a special Halloween episode on Friday’s Live with Regis and Kelly, during which they spoofed some stars of reality television and pop culture.

Above is a pretty hilarious video of the two spoofing the now infamous public breakup between The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft. Jason famously dumped Melissa during the After The Rose special. Both Jason and Melissa are now both happily engaged to other people.

Regis and Kelly also spoofed the Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa ganging up on Danielle with Caroline, and flipping a table.

Jake-the-bachelor

The new season of The Bachelor only began filming weeks ago, but Jake Pavelka already believes he has met his future wife on the reality dating series.

Jake reveals to AccessHollywood during a group date for the show, “She is in Los Angeles right now. I have met Mrs. Pavelka.” The 31-year-old Texan says he has not officially chosen the woman he’ll marry yet, but believes she is among the 25 hopefuls currently vying for his love.

AccessHollywood reveals there will be three single mothers amongst the women competing, whom Jake calls, “The prettiest cast I have ever seen on the show.”  As for whether Jake has any jitters about picking the wrong woman, reminiscence to what Jason Mesnick did on his season, Jakes reveals he has no fears.

“It doesn’t scare me. I am going to let my heart lead,” he says. ‘I think Jason Mesnick in the end wound up with the right decision. I understand they are engaged. I bumped into Molly a couple of weeks ago in the airport and she is just giddy over that guy. So he is walking on a good path.”

The new season of “The Bachelor” returns January 2010.
