After looking for love among 25 beautiful women onÂ The Bachelor,Â Jake Pavelka thought he found his one and only with contestant,Â Vienna Girardi, but five months later, the couple endured a nasty public breakup. Now, over a month later, Jake admits he’s enjoying his time as a bachelor again and taking advantage of the perks of being single.
“You know what, being single sometimes isn’t a bad thing. It gives you time to worry about you and work on yourself,”Â Jake Pavelka says about his new bachelor status. He says his split with Vienna Girardi wasÂ ”disappointing at first…but I’ve been taking advantage of being single. It’s been really nice to kind of slow down a little.”
Although he’s enjoying the single life, he’s definitely open to finding love again. “I like blondes, brunettes, redheads or any combination,” Jake joked about his ideal girl, before seriously adding,Â ”I’m just looking for a sweetheart. That’s the biggest thing. I’m looking for a girl that has a really big heart.”
Jake Pavelka is thrilled about former flame, Ali Fedotowsky’s run onÂ The Bachelorette and her new engagement to Roberto Martinez.Â ”It seemed like Ali did exactly what she needed to do. She went in there, had a lot of fun, broke a lot of hearts — good for her — and then followed her heart in the end,” says Jake Pavelka. “And the most important thing you can do on The Bachelor is to follow your heart and have fun along the way.”
