He won't need to dig too deep to play this part. Former airline pilot turned reality star Jake Pavelka (The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars) will guest star on The Bold and the Beautiful as the pilot of a private jet carrying Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Thomas Forrester (Adam Gregory) from Paris to L.A.

Pavelka, who previously played a reality show contestant on Drop Dead Diva, shoots the one-episode B&B role on Friday and it will air January 14.

Fans of the soap who don't give a hoot about Pavelka will still find this setup interesting. Here's why: Thomas, an up-and-coming designer, recently shocked viewers snotless by laying a lusty liplock on Brooke — his stepmother! — on stage at the end of his big fashion show. The kid later denied there was anything to it and claimed the kiss was intended to create a media uproar (which it did).

But apparently he does have a thing for the man-crazy matriarch. A rep for B&B tells TV Guide Magazine that by the time the Pavelka episode airs, "Thomas will have burgeoning feelings for Brooke but at that point she will be unaware of them." Does B&B really have the nerve to pursue this disgustingly trashy and near-incestuous romance? Oh, let's hope!
