The Bachelor: Jake Pavelka & Vienna Girardi Break Up

June 22, 2010 10:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Most viewers of ABC‘s The Bachelor aren’t going to be too shocked to hear that Jake Pavelka and fiancee, Vienna Girardi have called it quits. During the reality dating competition, Girardi stirred up controversy and certainly wasn’t the fan favorite by a long shot. Today, just three months after announcing their engagement, a rep for the couple confirmed the break-up to People magazine. Keep reading for more details on their split…

When Jake Pavelka gave his final rose to Vienna Girardi on last season of ABC‘s The Bachelor, most fans were less than enthused. Girardi had earned herself a reputation of being the villain of the house, getting in catty fights with the other women and stirring up drama time and time again. As the season went on, tabloid reports of Girardi’s wild past hit every newsstand giving viewers even more reason to despise her. She certainly didn’t seem like the girl that self-proclaimed nice guy, Jake Pavelka, would end up with. But lo and behold, Pavelka gave Girardi the final rose and a marriage proposal on the season finale and never stopped defending his decision.

Now, three months later, Pavelka and Girardi have called it quits. Janice Lee, a representative for the couple, says, “Jake and Vienna have split. They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time.” Lee didn’t give any reason for the break-up. According to TMZ, unnamed sources say that Pavelka is the one who ended the relationship due to possible infidelity on Girardi’s part. Pavelka allegedly believes Girardi may have been cheating on him with Gregory Michael, an actor from Greek. The two were reportedly spotted flirting at a recent event.

In the newest report from TMZ, the relationship ended around dinner time last night and Vienna, not Jake, called it quits.  Supposedly, Vienna was tired of Jake being a “fame whore” and leaving her alone while he jetted off around the country doing photo shoots, interviews and television shows.

Which story do you believe?

Pavelka is currently in Atlanta filming scenes for his upcoming guest appearance on Drop Dead Diva, while Girardi remains in Los Angeles. Neither have updated their Twitter pages in the past 24 hours. After their season of The Bachelor concluded, Pavelka went on to compete in ABC‘s Dancing with the Stars. After his elimination, he said he and Girardi needed to ”focus on our relationship and just see where life takes us right after that.”
