The Newest 'Bachelor' is a Pilot for Atlantic Southeast Airlines
ABC's dating reality show, "The Bachelor", is about to head into its 14th season--yes, 14th season--and thanks to a long line at our grocery store the other night we learned from People magazine that the newest bachelor will be Jake Pavelka, a contestant who was dissed on last season's "Bachelorette" by Jillian Harris.
So what's so special about Jake aside from his winsome smile, adorable baby pic (in a tracksuit!) and his rock hard abs? Well, he actually flies for Atlantic Southeast Airlines. (Yeah, we haven't flown them either.)
ASA is actually a Delta Connection carrier that serves 135 U.S. destinations from its hub in Atlanta and goes as far west as San Antonio and as far north as Montreal. Jake, 31, has been flying for ASA since 2000, a year after he starred in a bit part on the TV show, Walker, Texas Ranger (Check out his IMDB Profile!) The show, titled "The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love," is expected to start filming later this month and will air in early 2010.
Still, Jake told People mag that he's not doing "The Bachelor" to make a TV show, "I'm here to fall in love."
Awww, we fully expect some high-flying adventures on the next season. Or at least some dirt on the Mile High Club and saucy tales from the Cockpit. Wonder what the folks at ASA and Delta have to say about all this?
