Jake Pavelka: The Next Bachelor?

by at . Comments

On The Bachelorette, Jake Pavelka often told Jillian Harris he was "too perfect" for many women.

Fellow contestant Wes Hayden would disagree with that, of course, as Jake returned - after he was kicked out - to rat Wes out and tell Jillian that Hayden had a girlfriend.

Now, if rumors are true, America will get to decide for itself what kind of a man Jake really is: a Tennessee woman, who tried out for the 14th season of The Bachelor, claims the show has chosen Pavelka as its next star.

Brittney Gammel says the show's new season starts taping next month and premieres in January. She revealed the news about Jake to Us Weekly, who followed up with ABC.

The network replied:

"We are not going to confirm who The Bachelor is or if this woman is even one of the bachelorettes. People need to tune into Dancing With the Stars on October 13 to find out the real identity of the next Bachelor."
