When you’re a sexually ambiguous reality-TV star who’s run out of shows to do, what’s your next move?
No, not porn (not this time, anyway)—you join the Chippendales show at the Rio in Las Vegas.
Jake Pavelka, former Bachelor bride-seeker and Dancing with the Stars contestant, has signed on to be the host of the all-male revue for a month. Did we mention he also popped up on Bachelor Pad and VH1′s Famous Food?
“I will be guest hosting the show for four weeks, getting the audience excited for the show as well as closing out the show,” Pavelka tells The Hollywood Reporter. “You know, I’ve always loved the idea of a live audience. Hosting in front of an unpredictable crowd forces you to draw from the energy of the crowd. It’s challenging but also exciting to work off that kind of adrenaline, knowing no two shows will be the same.”
Sadly, he won’t be dropping trou, but these photos should satisfy your flesh lust for now. “I am the guest host for the run of those weeks, so I’m leaving it to the professionals who have kept this brand thriving since the 1970s,” he says.
After Pavelka was on The Bachelor, much hay was made about the fact that he and TV fiance Vienna Girardi never consummated their relationship in the six months they were together. Even Girardi commented, “I don’t think Jake is into girls.”
