The Bachelorette‘s fifth season star Jillian Harris and her fiancé Ed Swiderski will appear on the premiere of the 14th season of the Bachelor. According to ABC, the engaged couple will provide Jake Pavelka with some advice on his journey to find love. The lovebirds will surprise the 25 bachelorettes during the first night of the competition just before he’s about to present one of them with the first-impression rose. They will then help Jake make his first decision and share a special announcement with the new bachelor, says ABC.
The new season of the Bachelor will start with Jake, a 31-year-old commercial pilot from Dallas, TX arriving at the mansion to meet the 25 bachelorettes. Once in the mansion, all the ladies try to impress Jake and the competition officially begins.Once host, Chris Harrison arrives, the atmosphere takes a serious turn as he announces that Jake has to give one of the ladies the first impression rose, which he does after meeting with Jillian and Ed. At the end of the premiere show, Jake will have to send 10 bachelorettes packing.
This season’s Bachelor will include Jake and his bachelorettes appearing in a photo shoot for InStyle Magazine’s February issue; a private plane ride to Palm Springs for a Chicago concert; a trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain, where they have the amusement park all to themselves; bungee jumping off the Bridge to Nowhere in the San Gabriel Mountains; a trip to the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, where the ladies find out they are the ones performing; a road trip up California’s coast; dinner at Napa Valley’s Castillo di Amorosa; and a San Francisco visit that culminates in a romantic dinner for two at the top of Coit Tower.
The final 3 women will vacation with Jake in St. Lucia, where the season’s finale Rose Ceremony will take place. The new season will premiere Monday, January 4 at 8PM ET/PT.
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 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 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.
The last seasons of both The Bachelor and Bachelorette have both ended with a bang, as Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski seems to be sleeping with everyone including his fiancé Jillian Harris and two ex-girlfriends – Bethany SteffenandLindsey Johnson. Despite all the cheating accusations surrounding Ed and Jillian, the Bachelor producers are already casting for the next season of the Bachelor.
There have been rumors that Jake Pavelka, Reid Rosenthal or Kiptyn Locke will likely be the next Bachelor. These three are all fan favorites from this season of The Bachelorette. The Bachelor Producer, Mike Fleiss, has now confirmed one of the three will be the next Bachelor to Entertainment Tonight. “When the new season of The Bachelor premieres, look for Reid, Kiptyn or Jake to be handing out the red roses,” says Fleiss.
While the producers have yet to announce when the next Bachelor will be revealed, we can definitely continue to count on both Ed and Jillian to keep us occupied with the cheating/break up allegations.
According to our polls, you all want Reid to be the next Bachelor. I guess we will wait and see.
It had been heavily rumored that Kiptyn Locke would be the next Bachelor, but ABC is saying not so quick, as they have still yet to name the new Bachelor.
It however seems all but certain that the next Bachelor will be picked from this season of The Bachelorette. The 3 front runners are Reid Rosenthal, Kiptyn Locke, and Jake Pavelka.
Personally, none of these guys stand out that much to me, but I think I would rather see one of them be the new Bachelor than someone new. So we ask you this question. Who do you want to see as the next Bachelor? Feel free to comment and vote in the poll below.
The Bachelorette’s 5th season ended tonight with a normal ending, which is somewhat of a shocker nowadays. Jillian Harris ended up picking Ed Swiderski, an IT consultant from Michigan. She also accepted his proposal.
The finale however had a twist that involved previously eliminated contestant, Reid Rosenthal, returning to propose to Jillian. Jillian pretended to be confused before eventually turning Reid down.
Kiptyn was the first to get the bad news from Jillian, and is also heavily rumored to be the new bachelor. Congrats to Jillian and Ed, or should be wait until the After The Rose show before we start congratulating?
Also, the rumors that Ed came on the show with a girlfriend have never been substantiated, so we have no reason to believe Ed was two-timing Jillian as of today. Actually love Ed and Jillian together, so I hope it works out for them.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILLIAN MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE?
The Bachelorette finale is tonight! And there are a lot of speculations at to what will happen. Who will Jillian Harris pick? Do not read further if you do not want to know any spoilers.
Unlike last season, the producers of the show have done a pretty good job in keeping the finale results sealed. We however have some details on what will likely happen.
What is all but certain is that Kiptynwill not be the winner. He is heavily rumored to be the new bachelor.
Another certainty is that Reid will be coming back to the show. It seems he will be proposing to Jillian as well.
So that leaves us with Ed and Reid. Everything seems to be pointing to Reid not being the winner.
That leaves us with Ed. This is where the confusion comes in. Will Jillian pick Ed to be her man or will she pick no one?
A lot of the information as well as interviews Jillian has given points to her picking no one, and not being engaged. Then again this could be the producers playing a trick on us, as they tell her what she can and cannot say.
During all of her interviews before and during the show, Jillian has never mentioned being in a relationship or being engaged. This is very rare. The Bachelor(ettes) of the past shows always talked about being in love with the winner or being engaged. When asked again last week if she was engaged, Jillian said – “I can definitely say I am on top of the world right now and I can’t wait for Monday, so everybody can see why.”
She only says she’s happy with her decision. RealitySteve also has another theory. He believes with Reid and Ed proposing to her, she might decide to pick no one because she needs more time, leaving us with a cliff hanger until the After The Rose show.
