Jake Pavelka from "Bachelor Pad" is one of the contestants on Season 2 of the ABC reality competition series. He returns to the site of his infamous post-breakup face-off with Vienna Girardi, seeing her for the first time since their heated exchange. This time, Vienna's new man, Kasey Kahl (Ali Fedotowsky's season), will be by her side. Jake is a pilot currently living in Los Angeles, California.

Previously, Jake Pavelka ("Bachelor Pad 2") competed in Season 10 of ABC's reality ballroom competition

series, "Dancing with the Stars" in 2010. He was teamed up with professional dancer Chelsie Hightower, returning for her third season. They were the fifth pair eliminated.

Jake Pavelka starred in Season 14 of "The Bachelor" in 2010, setting out to prove that nice guys don't always finish last in love. The handsome commercial pilot from Dallas—and America's most hopeful romantic—starred in his own bid for true love, choosing from among 25 bachelorettes, in "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love." In the season finale, Jake became engaged to Vienna Girardi.

Ever since Jake shared a magical one-on-one date with Bachelorette Jillian Harris to see Martina McBride, millions of women have had their "Top Gun" fantasies about him. A fan favorite for his reputation as an honest guy with an open heart—not to mention his good looks—viewers were stunned when Jillian rejected Jake right before the hometown dates on last season's "The Bachelorette." But women were drawn to him even more when Jake returned of his own accord in the next episode to protect Jillian from men who were not there for the right reasons. Jake—who already knew Jillian would not take him back—freely shared and showed his emotions, and that's when the requests for Jake to be the next Bachelor started to pour in.

Fortunate to discover his passion at a young age, Jake started taking flying lessons at age 12. An accomplished pilot, he became an airline captain flight instructor at 23. On his days off, he has fun flying acrobatic planes, taking dance lessons and woodworking at the home he owns near Dallas. His parents have had a long and happy marriage, and it seems to run in the family, as Jake also has two happily married brothers—older brother Jason and younger brother Matt—and two nieces.

Jake grew up in Denton, Texas and attended University of North Texas and Embry Engineering University for Aerospace Science.
