Jake Pavelka Lands on Bachelor Pad 2 — Will Vienna Girardi Join Him?
Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka
Jake Pavelka is moving into Bachelor Pad 2 this summer, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Although the cast has yet to be officially announced for the upcoming Bachelor spin-off — where former contestants compete for love and money — producers confirmed Pavelka's participation to the magazine and released an image of him on the show with fellow ex-contestant Jackie Gordon.

The ex-airline pilot, 33, is no stranger to reality TV and most recently finished seventh on Dancing with the Stars, just months after his time on The Bachelor.
Pavelka memorably competed for Jillian Harris' heart on the fifth season of The Bachelorette, before searching for Mrs. Right on Season 14 of The Bachelor. The end of the show saw Pavelka propose to Vienna Girardi. However, their happy ending was short-lived and ended with an extremely messy and dramatic Bachelor tell-all special. In the hour-long special, Pavelka accused his ex-fiancée of cheating on him and Girardi alleged he had let fame go to his head.

In what could be an explosive twist, Girardi is also rumored to be joining Bachelor Pad 2, according to People. Since splitting from Pavelka, Girardi has been dating Kasey Kahl, who tried to win Ali Fedotowsky's heart with a tattoo last year on The Bachelorette. Naturally, Kahl is also rumored to be on Bachelor Pad 2.
Pavelka will also appear on the new VH1 reality series Famous Food, alongside fellow reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Danielle Staub.
Bachelor Pad 2 premieres Monday, Aug. 8 at 8/7c on ABC.
