Jake-the-bachelor

Jake Pavelka is speaking out on being chosen to be the new Bachelor.  The official announcement was made on Tuesday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars.

Jake reveals to UsMagazine that he is “honored” to be given a second chance at love as the latest Bachelor. Jake was dumped on the last season of The Bachelorette by Jillian Harris.  “It’s such a unique opportunity,” Jake, 31, revealed after the DWTS show taping in Los Angeles Tuesday. “I still cannot believe this is happening. How did I get here?”

When asked about the drama from last season including the accusation that Wes Hayden had a girlfriend back home, Jake reveals he hopes that’s something he will not have to deal with. “I hope that’s something we don’t deal with this season,”  he said.  “I’m going to give everybody a clean slate going in, and I think over time [contestants] will weed themselves out. I’m hopeful.”

So who is Jake’s dream girl? “I’m going to look deep into the heart for character,” he said. “The four most important things to me are similar qualities — someone who is romantic, passionate, compassionate and protective … and will laugh at my jokes!”

the-bachelorette-jillian-harris-ed

Bachelorette couple, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, are still going strong based on their latest interview with PEOPLE magazine.

The couple, currently living together in Ed’s one bedroom Chicago condo, both admit it took a lot of effort to get to this next step in their relationship.  Who can forget two of Ed’s former girlfriends coming forward last August to reveal that Ed had continued relationships with both of them during his time on The Bachelorette, and even after he became engaged to Jillian.

Ed is willing to admit some wrongdoing on his part but still claims those very believable reports of his cheating were exaggerated. “I was a bachelor in every sense of the word,” Ed admits. “I am not an angel, but things were exaggerated.”

Jillian continues to maintain Ed did nothing wrong — “It would be more naïve of me to trust [these women] than to trust the person I’m going to bed with every single night and have spoken to every single night,” says Jillian.

The Bachelor fans no longer have to wait for ABC’s official announcement on October 13th as multiple sources are now confirming Jake Pavelka to be the next Bachelor!

Brittany Gammell, a Tenessee native — who says she’s been cast to be on the upcoming season of The Bachelor tells Musiccitytv.com that indeed, Jake the Pilot is the new Bachelor.

“He’s pretty cute. I’ve seen he was on The Bachelorette. I’m not worried about that part,” said the 25-year-old Brittany, who adds that the taping of the show will begin Oct. 12 in L.A.

RealitySteve also believes Jake’s the new Bachelor, saying Kiptyn Locke was not a contender due to his non interest, leaving the final choice between Jake and Reid Rosenthal. He reveals that all signs point to Jake being the chosen one.

It’s a bit surprising to see Jake chosen as the new Bachelor, as I thought Reid was the favorite to win. ABC chose not to comment on this report, but one can’t help but wonder whether or not there will be any penalties levied against Brittany for revealing this information, if she is indeed a contestant. What she did is a huge no no, and she basically ruined ABC’s big surprise reveal on Dancing With The Stars’ Oct. 13th episode.

Tell Us: Are You Happy With Jake as The New Bachelor?

The Bachelorette's Reid, Kiptyn and Jake

The Bachelor fans are free to rejoice once again as ABC will be announcing the new “Bachelor” on Tuesday, Oct. 13 live on Dancing with the Stars.

The host of the show, Chris Harrison, also confirmed this news via his Twitter page.

The show’s producer, Mike Fleiss, had previously confirmed the next Bachelor would be one of the contestants from Jillian Harris‘s recent Bachelorette season, even narrowing the choices down to three men. “When the new season of The Bachelor premieres, look for Reid, Kiptyn or Jake to be handing out the red roses,” said Fleiss.

There are however rumblings that the new Bachelor could be a new contestant all together. Our previous polls showed a preference for Reid as the next Bachelor.

The new season of “The Bachelor” will premiere in early 2010; with all signs pointing to Monday, Jan. 4, though the actual premier date has yet to be confirmed.

DeAnna Pappasjillian-ed

Former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas wishes the best for Jillian Harris, who recently moved to Chicago to live with cheating fiance Ed Swiderski.

“I do hope it works out for them; the odds are against them,” she told Usmagazine at the Madison & Mulholland charity suite in West Hollywood over the weekend.

“Supposedly Jillan and Ed are head over heels in love. I haven’t hung out with them, but we have mutual friends, and they say they are just crazy about each other,” she added. “It seems to be working so far.”

It was reported that Ed cheated on Jillian with 2 different women during the taping of The Bachelorette, and also just 8 days after proposing to her.

This news did not surprise DeAnna who says, “I wasn’t an Ed fan while [Jillian] was filming the show.”

“I think some people go on the shows with different intentions and maybe they are not open in the beginning what their intentions are,” she told US, without elaborating. “So in the end, you get duped.”

DeAnna is however a bit more optimistic about Bachelor couple, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are still together despite the odds. “They are so happy, and I do think that they are going to get married,” said DeAnna. “They really just get each other, and it works for them.”

Tom DeLay on Dancing With The Stars

With less than one week to go before the season 9 premiere, Dancing with the Stars has suffered its first casualty, in former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Tom injured himself during a rehearsal with pro dance partner Cheryl Burke. “Old age is catching up to me. May have a stress fracture in my foot. No worries, it’ll take more than that to keep me off the dance floor,” the Texas politician posted on Twitter Tuesday.

A DWTS rep confirms the injury to PEOPLE, saying DeLay is currently having his foot examined in Los Angeles. Doctors will determine if he can continue on the show, which kicks off Monday, Sept. 21 on ABC.

The injury is however not likely to restrict the politician from dancing on premier night as he twittered again on Tuesday afternoon, “No stress fracture. It’s a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day.”

People is also reporting that DWTS will honor Patrick Swayze on its Sept. 23 live results show.
