It turns out that Jake Pavelka, hunky star of The Bachelor, wasn’t always in such high demand. While he recently had his pick of 25 gorgeous women on the ABC reality show, the sexy pilot claims that his nickname in high school was Mr. Dateless. Keep reading to find out more about his loveless past…
On the fourth episode of The Bachelor, Jake opened up to bachelorette Gia about his unlucky-in-love experiences, bashfully admitting that classmates used to call him Mr. Dateless in high school. It’s hard to believe that the heartthrob has ever had a hard time finding a girl, although his insecurity on the ABC show hints that he may not have always been as desired as he is now.
â€œI was just shy around girls at that age,â€ Jake tellsÂ Life & Style. â€œI tended to be bullied in the seventh, eighth andÂ ninth grades.â€Â One former contestant on The Bachelor isn’t shocked by the news. Recently ousted bachelorette Ella Nolan tells the mag,Â â€œThe time that I spent with Jake, I could see that he was probably very shy in high school.â€
One thing’s for sure: the smokin’ hot commercial airline pilot certainly doesn’t have any issues finding a date nowadays! He’s narrowed down the competition from 25 beautiful ladies to four potential wives on the ABC series which airs on Monday nights.
