On the 200th episode of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, many of the show’s former contestants came out to celebrate. Among them was Jake Pavelka, and we were all surprised to see the former Bachelor out with his new flame, Meghan Jones. Read on to see what Pavelka had to say about his budding relationship.
Pavelka and Jones sat in the audience holding hands during the special episode of the hit ABC reality show. Quite the contrast from the low profile the pilot has kept for the past several months. In that time, Pavelka was reportedly “flying planes and training and competing in triathlons.”
Pavelka tells People magazine that the couple met “a couple of months ago and we just clicked.” The reality stud also noted that meeting Meghan Jones away from all the cameras “is nice,” adding, “It’s normal.”
What are Jake Pavelka’s plans now that he’s back in the spotlight?
After a guest-starring gig on Drop Dead Diva last August, Pavelka says he’s still pursuing a career in acting and is working on a new series. “I can’t tell you anything more about it yet,” he says about the show, but tells People that “it’s 18 episodes.”
In the meantime, Jake is focusing on his new relationship, which despite the distance–Pavelka has homes in both Los Angeles and Dallas–has been going well.
“I am from here. I have family in Orange County,” says Jones, telling the magazine that the couple will spend Thanksgiving together in California.
As for now…
“I think tomorrow we may skip town. One of the greatest things about being a pilot is being able to jump on a plane to Australia spur of the moment,” says Pavelka. “We may go there or Bangkok or Bali. We’ve been looking at the weather so that will help us decide.”
Ahh, decisions, decisions!
