Fortunately for Jake, during the season premier episode former Bachelorette Jillian Harris and her beauEd Swiderskicome to his rescue. Let’s not forget that Jillian and Ed are making history since they are one of the very few success stories to emerge from several years of ABCs The Bachelor and Bachelorettes shows. The couple appears on the premiere and offer advice to Jake .
If this isn’t the blind leading the blind, then I don’t know what is.
In less than three weeks, Jake Pavelka’sseason of the “The Bachelor” On the Wings of Love,” will premiere Monday, Jan 4th on ABC. The question on everyone’s mind is did Jake find love? In a recent interview, Jake talks being the new Bachelor, the 25 amazing bachelorettes, relationship with Wes Hayden and more.
In a previous interview, Jake promised a dramatic and steamy season. And we love drama! Overall, it seems like Jake had a great experience and may have found his soul mate even though he didn’t confirm or deny it.
Below are excerpts from Jake’s interview:
Did you find someone special on the show?
I don’t want to ruin the ending but I will say 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. If I don’t find love and don’t have that feeling, then I won’t. I didn’t promise a ring at the end of this and I stayed true to myself and didn’t necessarily do what everybody wanted me to do.
What were the girls like?
All 25 women were absolutely amazing, very high caliber. All walks of life. Just incredible journeys. I’m sitting here just running different girls through my head and they were all amazing, really amazing.
What was your reaction when you were approached to be the next bachelor?
I did a back-flip on my front lawn. I was so excited. I was just really flattered and humbled to be considered and have it actually happen. I still can’t believe that all of this happened.
What made you decide to do the Bachelor? Was there any one deciding factor?
The one deciding factor was how well Jill and Ed were matched up. Casting and producers knew Ed really well; they knew and loved Jillian with a mad passion. The way it feels when you’re going through this journey is like your best friend that knows you setting you up with the perfect girl. In this case, it happens to be 25. You know how a lot of times in life, your best friend knows you but also knows this girl over here and they make a match and it ends up working. That’s exactly what I saw in Jill’s season and that was the determining factor.
Jillian very famously had some steamy scenes during her seasons that she said she had to apologize to her dad for. Are you in the same position to apologize to your parents for any steamy scenes?
In a normal dating relationship, would you get into a hot tub in a swimsuit with a girl? Yes. I’ve done that in past relationships. Why would I not do that now and give the relationship every chance I can? I don’t think I have anything to apologize for. I’m very confident with how I handled myself on the show.
The 14th season of The Bachelorpremieres 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 duringThe 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.

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.
The new season of The Bachelor only began filming weeks ago, but Jake Pavelkaalready 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 whatJason 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.
Bachelorette couple, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, were spotted on Wednesday shopping at the new Victoria’s Secret store on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Jillian says, even though Ed isn’t complaining, she needs to add more to her lingerie collection.
According to People.com, both Ed and Jillian say the sexiest way to go is with “no panties” and “no bras”. A little too much information for a couple who have been in the spotlight for Ed’s alleged cheating.
The couple, who recently moved in together, couldn’t wait to talk about newly engaged Molly Malaney and her beau Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to Molly in New Zealand. “We had no idea they got engaged and we just literally talked to them yesterday,” Harris said, adding that they just found out. “They sent us a picture of them in New Zealand and they looked so happy … I guess I never thought about it, but them being in New Zealand would be the best time to do it. It all makes sense!”
Jillian believes the couple are “awesome together,” despite all the drama that surrounded their relationship initially. Jillian reveals that the four of them hung out in Vancouver and she and Ed look forward to future outings with Jason and Molly.
What does Jillian think of Jake Pavelka as the new Bachelor?
Jillian says, it’s akward seeing him date other women since he was one of my suitors. Nevertheless, she is thrilled that he may find his mate.
“I think he’s going to make an interesting Bachelor,” Jillian said. “He’s definitely got a lot of emotion so I think he’ll be very fun to watch.”
“I hope he finds somebody and gets married because that show is full of s–t,” he told Usmagazine at the Fox Reality Channel’s Reality Awards in L.A. “One marriage in 18 seasons? I mean, come on!”
According to Wes, it’s “absolutely impossible to find love” on the ABC show.
“Call me old fashioned and say that my moral compass is off, but is it OK for one woman to make out with 30 guys and in eight weeks dwindle it down to someone she is going to spend the rest of her life with?” he said.
That’s not all, Wes goes on to claim there are rumors that Ryan and Trista were a couple prior to the show. “I heard they were already a couple before the show started. That’s what I heard from the past contestants when I was off the show,” said Wes. Trista & Ryan are the only couple to ever get married during the 18 seasons of the show.
Wes is also upset on how he was portrayed on the show. “I saw one episode, and it was the very first one, and I was so upset that I didn’t watch any other episodes,” he said. “I mean, look at me! I’m sleeved out with tattoos! I’ve got the spiky hair!”
Wes reveals that his 17 year old sister signed him up for the show and he had no interest being a part of the show in the first place. How old is this guy again?
What about the future of BacheloretteJillian Harris and Ed Swiderski? “I love Jillian and I talk to her all the time on Facebook still,” Wes said. “If she gets married and has lots of babies and lives the American Dream, great. But honestly, I don’t think that is going to happen.”
