32-year-old Jake Pavelka is out to prove to the world that nice guys don't finish last. No, they finish in love. Fasten your seatbelts and leave your relationship baggage at the door as this handsome commercial pilot from Dallas prepares to take flight as The Bachelor. Jake Pavelka grew up in Denton, Texas and attended University of North Texas and Embry Engineering University for Aerospace Science. He discovered his passion for flying at a young age, as he started taking lessons at age 12. As an accomplished pilot, he became an airline captain flight instructor at 23. In his free time, he has fun flying acrobatic planes, taking dance lessons and woodworking at the home he owns near Dallas. Now, if you're thinking this guy looks familiar, you'd be right. Ever since Jake shared a magical date with The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, millions of women have had their own high-flying fantasies about him. A fan favorite for his rep as an honest guy with an open heart, viewers were stunned when Jillian rejected Jake just before the hometown dates. But when Jake returned in the next episode to protect Jillian from some less-than-genuine suitors, this gorgeous flyboy sent our hearts soaring once again. We weren't alone because requests for him to be the next Bachelor came pouring in. Jake's fairytale experience with Jillian gave him motivation to continue his search for love on The Bachelor. Only this time, it's his turn to call the shots. Jake longs to find that special someone who is intelligent, confident, energetic and spontaneous. He wants a best friend and soul mate. He also admits that he can't wait for fatherhood. Hey, the family thing seems to be in his genes. Jake's parents have had a long and happy marriage and he also has two happily married siblings, older brother Jason and younger brother Matt. Will Jake jet off into the sunset one of the bachelorettes waiting in the wings? One thing we know for sure is that there will be 25 arrivals and at least 24 departures once the 14th edition of The Bachelor takes to the air on Monday, January 4, 2010 on ABC
