Jake Pavelka to Play a Bachelor on Drop Dead Diva
Jake Pavelka will be a bachelor on TV once more — this time on Drop Dead Diva.
In a nod to his reality-dating roots, the Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars alum will guest-star on the Lifetime series as a suitor on a fictional dating show, a show rep tells TVGuide.com.
Pavelka will play Toby Devlin on the faux show Finding the One, whose producer is sued for "intentionally inflicting emotional harm" after Toby dumps one bachelorette for another.

This will not be Pavelka's first stab at acting: In 1999, he played a young version of Chuck Norris' Cordell Walker on Walker, Texas Ranger under the stage name Jake Landrum.
Pavelka, 32, will film Diva on Friday and next Monday, and the episode is slated to air Aug. 22. Barry Watson is also scheduled to appear in the same episode as a grieving man who files a wrongful termination lawsuit after being fired from his job.
