'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka Devastated Over Death Of 'Bachelor' Contestant He Barely Knew

2/17/2016 6:50am EST
Jake Pavelka Cashing In On Death Of 'Bachelor' Contestant He Bar
Jake Pavelka was missing from the crowd of former Bachelor stars during last Sunday night's Bachelor at 20 special. Although a clip from his unforgettable showdown with his former fiancee Vienna (video below) was shown during the ABC special, no one seemed to notice Jake wasn't there to reminisce with Chris Harrison about his season.

However, his lack of popularity within the franchise didn't stop him from rushing to People magazine on Monday to give an exclusive interview about the death of a former contestant from his season, Alexa "Lex" McAllister.

Jake's season took place six years ...

Jake Pavelka
Kristin Chenoweth is one lucky lady. The actress is dating a sexy, younger man - former "Bachelor" star Jake Pavelka.

Chenoweth, 44, met Pavelka, 34, in October, and they've gone on several dates together. Pavelka appeared on the fifth season of the reality show and nearly married fellow contestant Vienna Girardi before they broke off their engagement in 2010.

Chenoweth told, "We have been spending a little time together."

The actress previously dated screenwriter Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing," "The Newsroom.")

A Bare Chested Jake Pavelka Celebrates Chippendales' 10th Anniversary

Jake Pavelka
"The Bachelor" star Jake Pavelka hosted the Chippendales 10th Anniversary event in Las Vegas at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas yesterday.

The reality star showed off his rock hard abs on the red carpet.

Jake got on our radar on the fifth season of "The Bachelorette." In 2009 he starred on "The Bachelor's" 14th season. The following year he appeared on"Dancing With the Stars."

Like most reality show romances, his relationship with fiancee Vienna Girardi ended not long after "The Bachelor" ended. The drama continued for the former couple on "Bachelor Pad."

'Bachelor Pad' 2 Finale Had It All: Winners, Hugs, Breakdowns & Proposal

9/13/2011 4:40pm EDT
Holly Durst, Chris Harrison, Michael Stagliano of Bachelor Pad
Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst were named the “Bachelor Pad” season 2 winners and the winners of $250,000 on part two of Monday’s season finale. While some viewers may have thought Michael would go rogue and run off with the money due to recent, extremely awkward developments, the couple did decide to share the money, with Michael citing that Holly was always loyal and will always be his partner.

Despite no longer being a couple, Michael said it was loved that carried the pair through the game, adding that he could’ve punched Blake and fought with Holly but that wouldn’t have won him $2...

Q&A: 'Bachelor Pad' Star Vienna Girardi

8/29/2011 4:00pm EDT
Vienna Girardi
Vienna Girardi knows what it really means to be famous. After winning season fourteen of ABC's The Bachelor, she had a messy split with Jake Pavelka that labeled her a reality TV "bad girl." Now she - and her ex, not to mention her new boyfriend - are back for the second season of the Bachelor spin-off series Bachelor Pad. Before tonight's new episode (8 PM ET/PT), Vienna dropped in for a chat about love, the rest of her life, and what it's like to be judged in the public eye.

After everything that you went through on The Bachelor and afterward, why come back? Why put yourself out ...

'Bachelor Pad' 2 recap: Did Vienna's And Kasey's Wishes Finally Come True?

Bachelor Pad
Despite another shot at trying to take down the “Bachelor Pad” 2 power couple, Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl finally managed to oust their number one enemy, Jake Pavelka, on Monday’s episode. Prior to the rose ceremony, Jake told viewers he was going to take some people down with him if he was eliminated, so when Kasey’s name was called to receive the final rose I was anxious and excited – and then we cut to masked synchronized swimmer Jeff Medolla. Talk about frustration! Not that Jeff’s performance wasn’t top notch, but I really hate having to wait until next week to hear Jake go off on t...

'Bachelor' Recap: Send In The Clowns

THE BACHELOR Episode 1502
We knew Brad’s second outing as ‘The Bachelor’ was bound to become a freak show eventually, but we didn’t think it would happen this quickly – or literally. Right after move-in, Ashley the dentist scores the very first one-on-one date with Brad, and it’s (ta da!) a private carnival, complete with tents that advertise attractions like MIDGET HORSES and DADDY ISSUES.

Since he’s a changed man, the bachelor jumps right into tent #2 for some serious talk about commitment, abandonment, fear, and redemption. The date would be a total downer if not for the teddy bears, ferris wheels and wine. Lu...

'The Bachelor' Recap: Brad Is Back

The Bachelor 1501
“The Bachelor” had plenty of cringe-worthy moments in 2010. There was the dude who wanted to “guard and protect” Ali’s heart so much, he ran out and got a tattoo. Then, we were treated to the ewww-fest/spin-off known as “Bachelor Pad,” a gruesome display if ever there was one. Still, it’s a new year and the franchise seems to be courting a new low, trotting out a commitment-phobic former “Bachelor” whose introduction includes references to intense therapy and panic attacks. Here’s hoping the 21st season will be the next ‘Most Dramatic Season Yet!’

So without further ado…. Once again, it’s...

The Top Reality TV Moments Of 2010

Amazing Race Watermelon
Unscripted TV has yet again given us some of the most talked-about moments this year. Here are the Top Reality TV Moments of 2010:

Boom, Headshot! It seemed like a relatively harmless Amazing Race challenge at the time: launch watermelons with a giant slingshot and try to hit stationary targets. Unfortunately for Claire Champlin of the Home Shopping Network team, she inadvertently made herself one of the targets. A watermelon to the noggin is never a good thing.

Just Dance! Kate Gosselin wanted to make a statement on Dancing with the Stars. Unfortunately for her, the...

'Bachelor Pad' Recap: The West Coast Version Of 'Jersey Shore' Ends Its Season

9/15/2010 4:05pm EDT
Now that we’ve endured a full season of “Bachelor Pad,” we can confirm that our suspicions were correct and this show was a West Coast version of the “Jersey Shore” experiment: What happens when you put a bunch of lazy, shameless people in a house with a hot tub, a lot of alcohol and a camera crew?

From the evidence we’ve gathered so far, we can make the following conclusions: 1)Being slutty and orange-skinned or slutty with killer abs pays really well; 2)Bromances are the best relationships; 3)Anonymous letters from roommates and better judgment still won’t get some girls to reclaim their...

'Bachelor Pad' Recap: The Most Dramatic Guilty Pleasure Ever

8/11/2010 9:42am EDT
Bachelor Pad
After 20 seasons, “The Bachelor” franchise decided to do away with the flimsy pretense that it has anything to do with love, marriage, or common decency. What we’re left with is “Bachelor Pad,” a tasteless and classless version of a show that was never particularly tasteful or classy to begin with --in other words, a ‘Jersey Shore’-caliber guilty pleasure.

An extended opening montage features a lot of horribly annoying people being horribly annoying, and the guilty part of guilty pleasure kicks in. I recognize all of these horrible people. I hate all of them. I hate myself for knowing ...

Tenley Molzahn The Bachelor Pad
We sat down with reality sweetheart Tenley Molzahn at the W hotel in Westwood for KIIS FM’s Teen Choice gifting lounge! After checking out steamy commercials from her hit new show, The Bachelor Pad, we asked Ms. Molzahn about some of her juicy hook-ups! She revealed she made-out with not one, but two hotties while taping! But Tenley insisted only one was for fun and the other had some meaning behind it! After getting dumped by loser Jake Pavelka, she deserves true-love! Good luck, Tenley!

People Ali Fedotowsky
Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky opens up to PEOPLE about choosing between two men and risking everything for love. With the season finale of the hit reality show set to air on August 2nd, millions of viewers are wondering if the 25-year-old former Facebook employee picked down-to-earth landscaper Chris Lambton, 33, or sexy insurance salesman Roberto Martinez, 26 - or if, as some rumors have suggested, she simply walked away solo. Ali had been doing a good job of keeping the answers to herself - until, finally, she cracked.

Last night, we caught up with E!’s Catt Sadler at the Keep A Child Alive AIDS benefit in West Hollywood, where she dished all about Jake Pavelka’s recent break-up with the not-so-great Vienna Girardi!

After multiple interviews with the two, Catt was convinced they weren’t in-love from the get-go and is certain Vienna did indeed cheat on Jake—we knew it!

What 'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Lacked – Unpredictability

5/26/2010 11:07am EDT
Erin Andrews
“Dancing With The Stars” is a great idea for a television show – get a handful of some famous faces, pair them with professional dancers and dress them up in sparkly outfits while they get harsh criticism filled with double entendres. As season 10 came to a close last night, it’s clear that audiences have really grown to love this formula as the show’s ratings top the juggernaut that is “American Idol”.

However, here’s one complaint – the celebrities with the dancing experience always place the highest! Ok so DWTS is a show based around competitive dancing. It’s like the free market where ...

Nicole Scherzinger Wins 'Dancing With The Stars'

Nicole Scherzinger
The final three celebrities gave it one last dance for judges on Tuesday night's "Dancing With The Stars" finale, but it was Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger who emerged victorious, narrowly edging out the other two competitors - ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews, and Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek - to win the show's coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

During the finale, the three competitors danced the Tango in the penultimate elimination. Andrews was ousted first, leaving Scherzinger to face off against Lysacek in one final dance-off before being crowned champion.

Eliza Dushku has apologized to reality TV star Vienna Girardi after accusing her of setting her sights on the actress' boyfriend Rick Fox.

Dushku sent a warning message to The Bachelor star Girardi via on Tuesday, posting a screen grab of the reality star glancing at the former basketball player during a taping of Dancing with the Stars.

She wrote, "Vienna, I will CUT you. Keep yo' eyes on yo' own meat!"

However, the Bring It On star has offered up an apology to Girardi, who is engaged to marry Jake Pavelka - in a bid to prove the comment was a joke.

Dushku tweets: "I he...

Kate Gosselin Booted From 'Dancing With The Stars'

Kate Gosselin Given Boot
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin has one fewer job to juggle.

The author and reality star was eliminated Tuesday from "Dancing With the Stars," leaving seven couples in the competition.

Gosselin failed to ignite the ballroom, landing near the bottom of the judges' leaderboard during five weeks of dancing. She and professional partner Tony Dovolani came into Tuesday's results show with the week's lowest score: 15 points out of 30 for a lackluster foxtrot.

"I think Tony could have had more life out of a frock on a coat hanger," judge Bruno Tonioli said Monday.

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Rumbas, Tangos, And A Twist Of Kate

4/13/2010 1:20pm EDT
The stunt-heavy tenth season of “Dancing with the Stars” continued last night with a “Double Score Showdown,” where each team received scores for both technique and performance. Despite a few much-needed triumphs (Kate! Chad!), it was an odd, unpredictable episode where the whole was often better (and more entertaining) than the sum of the judges’ scores.

First up, Erin and Maks performed the tempting, titivating Tango. I thought their dance was really entertaining and they did a good job performing it. The judges were not as enthusiastic, although Len admittedly did like the lack of blind...

Dancing With the Stars
Once upon a time, there was judge... Let’s call him Len. He wanted to see dancing that told a story on this week’s “Dancing with the Stars.” He got his wish. But there was a price. This was a dance competition and the performers started sacrificing their dancing for the story. Len did not see this coming and he was not happy. He scowled and criticized, and gave the stars lower scores than they deserved. How dare Derek Hough break the laws of the quick step!!!!! Until finally, the night of dancing was over and Len vowed to never again ask these fools to do anything but dance.

That was the b...

Top 5 To Watch March 22-28: 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'V: The Arrival,' & More

V: The Arrival
"Dancing with the Stars" is back! The favorite reality competition will return Monday for its tenth season with 11 new celebrities strutting their stuff for this season's grand title. They're saying that this will be the best season yet, and they may be right if they mean it will be the best season to see the most hysterical dancers to date. They've put together quite the cast for season 10, and although I don't normally like to pick a winner before the premiere, I'm already putting my money on either Evan Lysacek, the Olympic gold medal figure skater, or Nicole Scherzinger, the Pussycat Do...

3/19/2010 11:50am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
The 10th installment of "Dancing with the Stars" doesn’t begin until Monday, March 22, so we haven’t seen how well (or not-so-well) this season’s 11 singers, actors, athletes and TV personalities can shake their booties. But based largely on popularity, here are early predictions on who has the best chance of dancing their way to the top.

Pamela Anderson, 42

Occupation: Former Playboy playmate, actress, blonde bombshell

Chances of winning: 1 in 6.

Why? Perhaps the most popular of the group, Anderson already has a large fanbase that includes both men and women. But, unfortunately, she’s ...
