I bet Jake goes running back to Ali, or even Tenley. What do you think?
Sure, we all know The Bachelor‘s Jake Pavelka, 32, is on the rebound after his recent breakup with fiancee Vienna Girardi, 24, but the big question is — what’s his next move? My bet is that he’s going to go running back Ali Fedotowsky, 25, who left him on The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love in order to keep her job as an Account Rep at Facebook.
Ironically, Ali is currently The Bachelorette. So, a move like this would be nothing new. We’ve seen old Bachelors and Bachelorettes return on seasons before to try and win back the ones they let go. From DeAnna Pappas trying to get Jason Mesnick back to Ed Swiderski leaving then returning to Jillian Harris‘s season, this is no new stunt.
In fact, this seems to be a trick plugged by ABC to increase ratings. On Wed, June. 23, ABC filmed The Bachelor Breakup Reunion Special that will air during Ali’s July 5th Bachelorette episode. What a perfect build up for a return by Jake during one of the final episodes to try and win Ali back!
If this isn’t in the works, then maybe ABC has other plans for Jake. He will be making a guest appearance on ABC’s new series, The Bachelor Pad and guess who will be there … Tenley Molzahn, Jake’s runner up on season 14. Is this a contrived interaction to see if sparks fly (aka ratings). There will be 5 other girls, including Gia Allemand, from Jake’s season also there to keep a watchful eye (there are more contestants from Jake’s season than any other season — ironic? I think not!)
But, the real question — even if ABC devised these setups — would either Ali or Tenley ever take fame-hungry Jake back? I warn them both to send this once-pilot on the next flight home!
