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.
