ABC has officially announced that it’s new Bachelor will be Jake Pavelka. If you watched last season of the Bachelor then you’ll remember Jake as the smiley Airline Pilot who rushed back to the side of Jillian Harris to tattle tale on Wes. I don’t think there were a lot of people asking “Who will be the next Bachelor?”
It was an obvious choice that ABC made for it’s next Bachelor.
But is Jake Pavelka a good choice? ABC seems to think so. He definitely has won some hearts over already with his charming good looks and his “too good to be true” attitude. The Bachelorette Jillian Harris seemed to think Jake lacked that little bit of personality and it kind of got passed off that he was a little too fake even for The Bachelor.
Jake Pavelka was in fact deemed too perfect. He didn’t show Jillian any flaws and that kind of made him seem robotic on the show. But as The Bachelor television audience, maybe we didn’t get to see enough of Jake with the edited version to make a judgment on his character. Maybe we shouldn’t be judging at all. But that’s what audiences do. They come to conclusions on reality television stars and you kind of know that going in.
The New Bachelor Jake Pavelka will probably have a little bit of a public relations makeover in the first few episodes of the show. The Bachelor producers will probably make absolute sure that everyone in America realizes that Jake Pavelka has flaws. Nobody is perfect and ABC will probably dig inside like a political reporter to uncover anything of remote interest that will help engage viewers and paint a less perfect picture. When all is said and done we will figure out that Jake isn’t perfect. Jake, afterall, is still single for some reason. His lack of having the perfect partner obviously makes his relationship life not perfect. So he isn’t perfect. And he’ll prove it early on in the show. The only question then is “Will America still like Jake Pavelka after they see his flaws?”
We’ll definitely see. I think Jake will be a fun and great Bachelor. I am sure there are many single women out there who fell in love with the guy last season. When Jake returned for the ” Bachelor: Men Tell All” episode the women in the audience just gushed when he was introduced. Then the women were equally as pleased when Jake was asked if he wanted to be the next Bachelor. Of course he does. Who would go on The Bachelorette and then not want to be The Bachelor. Not perfect Jake Pavelka, surely not?
More fame, more minutes and definitely way more women to choose from. It’s a win-win.
