Bachelor JAKE PAVELKA, 31, is out to prove that nice guys don't always finish last. The handsome commercial pilot from Dallas, Texas, begins his search for true love, choosing from 25 bachelorettes, in The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love. Jake, who appeared on The Bachelorette with Jillian Harris, quickly became a fan favorite for his reputation as an honest guy with an open heart — not to mention his good looks. So viewers were stunned when Jillian rejected Jake, and stunned again when Jake returned of his own accord to warn Jillian of men who were not there for the right reasons. Millions watched as Jake freely shared his emotions, and the support came flooding in. Now it's his time, and Jake is ready to find the right woman — his best friend and soul mate — and that's who he'll marry. Hosted by CHRIS HARRISON, the series soars to new heights this season with drama and heartfelt emotion.
