Jake Pavelka joined On-Air with Ryan Seacrest to give “probably one of the last interviews I’m [Jake] going to give about Vienna. Because that chapter [of my life] is over! Thats It! ”
“Bachelor Pad,” the show that has everyone talking, premiered last Monday and featured Hollywood’s most dramatic ex-couple ever, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. These two former lovers became engaged on November 22nd, 2009 after “The Bachelor” concluded it’s 14th season and began their rocky romance that ultimately ended in anger, drama, and sadness.
For those of us who tuned in to the Bachelor Pad, we can all agree that the episode was nothing short of entertaining. Beforehand, everyone was wondering how lovers-turned-enemies Jake and Vienna would act when they were reunited again.
On Vienna being cast in the show, Jake says he “didn’t really think about it. I had reached out to her a couple of times over the last few years to try and reconcile what happened during the break up special. She wouldn’t take my calls.” In fact, when he found out that Vienna would be starring alongside him in the reality show, he was almost relieved. He knew that he’d finally have the chance to talk with Vienna and (hopefully) iron everything out.
It was his desire to clear the air that led him to drop an unexpected bombshell on the Bachelor Pad last Monday. As the winning couple, he and his date, Jackie, had the opportunity to reward another couple with the “Immunity Rose,” that would save them from being eliminated. He surprisingly handed it off to Vienna, who took it without so much as a “thank you.” Later, he pulled her and Kasey aside to apologize to them for everything that had happened in the past. To his face, Vienna acted okay about the apology but later in her one-on-one interview, she clearly stated she wasn’t buying any of it.
Jake spoke candidly about the whole situation with Ryan: “I gave Vienna that rose because I went on the show not for $250,000 but to finish that conversation that we started a year ago where she crocodile teared out. She was so on edge and not to mention, on her way out [of the Bachelor Pad.] Everyone had decided that Vienna was leaving and she was going to be off the show and I couldn’t let that happen because I needed that moment with her….[and] I wanted her to be comfortable.” Jake’s move was undeniably nice but Vienna didn’t accept it, promising more drama in the upcoming episodes.
Despite the tension between Jake, Vienna and Kasey, Jake had some kind words to say about the couple: “I wish them both well. I think they both have a little bit of an uphill battle. Some of the stuff that’s coming up on the next episodes between them is a little bit disturbing. Kasey is a good guy, he’s just caught up in Vienna’s web.”
As far as the season of “Bachelor Pad” goes, Jake says he got “closure” which is exactly what he wanted. He also earned himself quite a nice paycheck, too! Not a bad gig!
The reason Jake shot to fame (or infamy, some might say) was because of his huge blow out with Vienna. Ryan had to get the inside scoop on their relationship, and we’ve got the details for you. Jake reassures us that he really did love Vienna, but after watching their season of “The Bachelor” together, he saw a side of Vienna that he had never seen, the one that America had tried to warm him about. Even though he was less than pleased with the woman he had chosen to be his wife, he “gave it a good go” and stayed with the two faced blonde for eight months, trying to work it out. Ultimately, he couldn’t give her what she wanted: “I think it was just that in our relationship I was not able to give her everything that she wanted, which was fame. That’s the one thing she truly wanted.” In order to speed along her process to earning celebrity status, she sold her break up story to a tabloid magazine. An unsuspecting Jake got a call from his publicist letting him know that, despite their happy relationship, Vienna had traded in the story for “thousands of thousands of dollars.” In her eyes, a break up was inevitable. Hurt and ashamed, Jake ended their relationship, earning them a spot on Chris Harrison’s “Break-Up Special.”
When asked about his heated interview with Chris Harrison on “The Break-Up Special” he blames Vienna’s tearful outburst on “crocodile tears. She can turn them on whenever she wants.” In his opinion, she played the “victim card” simply to gain fame. Confirming our suspicions, Jake spilled that he has absolutely “no feelings” for her anymore and even dished that she “looked fine” before her nose job. Well, that’s nice.
Jake has no shortage of kind words to say about the strongly disliked “Bachelor” contestant and he really seems genuine about it all. We’ll have to continue tuning in to the rest of the season “The Bachelor Pad” to see how everything boils down with with this warring former couple! Catch it on ABC on Monday’s at 8/7 central!
