June 15, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Jake Pavelka has plenty of experience competing for love on national television (he starred on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette). Now he’s putting that reality TV experience to work on a new acting gig, playing–what else?–a guy competing for love on national television. Pavelka has just landed a role in an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Diva playing a Bachelor-esque character. Keep reading for more details on his acting debut…

After vying for Jillian Harris’ heart on ABC‘s The Bachelorette, Jake Pavelka then went out looking for love on his own as the star of The Bachelor. After that wrapped, he danced his way into competition on ABC‘s Dancing with the Stars. It turns out we haven’t seen the last of Jake Pavelka. He reportedly just nabbed a role in an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Diva.

Jake Pavelka will guest star on Drop Dead Diva in August. He will be playing the role of Toby Davlin, a competitor on a show called Finding the One (aka The Bachelor). His episode isn’t slated to air until August 22, but Pavelka will be filming scenes on June 18. “I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season,” Pavelka says, “and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew.”

Drop Dead Diva creator and executive producer, Josh Berman says the former Bachelor really impressed everyone in his audition. “When Jake came into the office to audition for the role,” Berman says, “the whole production came to a stop. Everyone wanted to talk with him. He was so gracious and charming. He was spot-on and won the role in the room.”

This isn’t Pavelka’s first attempt at acting. Prior to starring on ABC‘s The Bachelor, Pavelka found minor success as he pursued an acting career. Using the name Jake Landrum, the reality TV star managed to land a role playing a young Chuck Norris on episodes of Walker, Texas Ranger.
