We left you hanging after part one of our interview with reality star Jake Pavelka. Enquiring minds want to know the juicy stuff: Does he still talk to Vienna? Has the handsome actor found that the “Bachelor” fame helped or hurt him in the dating scene? And the big question for the “Burning Love “ actor, has Jake found love?
“I never talk to her,” says Jake.”Why would I?”
When I look back, I realized I picked the closet to what I was looking for but let’s face it, I really didn’t have enough time to really get to know her. Is anyone really ready to propose in 12 weeks?”
“America expects a happy ending …you feel the pressure to propose. I figured it was better to choose someone and try to make it work.”
“Oh, my ‘Bachelor’ background definitely gets in the way – women see me as this “player”, which I’m not.”
Love, marriage and kids?
After a good hour talking, Jake exclusively told us that yes, he has a “serious” girlfriend, Ashley Ann Vickers, a beautiful model and actor eight years his junior.
“We’ve been together almost a year now,” says Jake, the happiness evident in his voice. I have such respect for her. She works her rear end off! “
When asked what is important to him in a woman, he ticks off three things:
” One, we have to respect for each other. Two, we have to level with each other and be able to talk about anything and three…,” here he pauses to find just the right words. “I guess I’d call it chemistry. It’s either there or it’s not.”
Does he see himself as a Dad someday?
“Oh, I absolutely see myself as a father!”
What next for the actor?
“I’d love to be a host; I love talking to people. I’m hosting a morning show in New York for a bit, which will be good experience.” (At press time,we still couldn’t release the name of the show.)
Now back to the beginning of this interview, where Jake pulled over to help a man he thought was hurt . Is he really that nice? Yeah, he is, America.
