Has Bachelor Jake Quit His Pilot Career?
Say what you want about the guy, but Bachelor Jake Pavelka is doing a hell of a job extending his 15 minutes of fame. After parlaying his appearance on Jillian Harris’ season of “The Bachelorette” into a gig as the next season’s “Bachelor,” Jake then worked his way onto “Dancing With the Stars,” and he didn’t stop there. Jake’s newest job is a guest-starring role on Lifetime’s comedy-drama “Drop Dead Diva.” Luckily, he won’t have to rely too heavily on any acting skills he may or may not have; he’ll play a suitor on the fictional dating show “Finding the One,” in which his character “spurns one bachelorette for another.” He begins shooting his scenes on June 18 ( to air Aug. 22), and executive producer Josh Berman says, “When we spoke about his shooting dates, he told us that he would be coming from Texas and could be on the set by noon. Since he was a former [commercial] pilot, he still remembered the flying schedule!” Wait, former commercial pilot? Does that mean Jake has hung up his aviators for good now that he’s found his route to Hollywood? Well, no one ever accused him of being overly bright, right? [via People]
