Jake Pavelka's Girlfriend: Is He Dating Someone? Or Is He Actually Gay?

Let’s us all just take our time out to admire this young bachelor pilot, Jake Pavelka. Girls, some raise in the heartbeat? Well, that is not something unusual because Jake is the guy who has the kind of looks that can make girls go weak in the knees instantly.

It looks like all of his past lovers have found their soulmates. However, the question remains whether he is he still a bachelor. Let’s see.

Jake Pavelka’s Girlfriend and Dating History:

According to Who’s dated who, Jake Pavelka has been in a total of five relationships till this date. Now, you get why we said “Let’s just take our time out” in the first place. It is because you cannot know about five relationships in a matter of seconds. 

It might get a little confusing. We will advise you to hang in there. We will do the partition according to the year.

1. (2010) Tenley Molzahn, the health blogger

Jake was dating Tenley Molzahn in the 14th season of The Bachelor. However, in the meantime, Jake chose Vienna Girardi, his second girlfriend, over her stating that they lacked physical chemistry. Apparently, Tenley has found someone special in life.

2. (2010)Vienna Girardi - the recruiting manager

Jake Pavelka then started dating Vienna Girardi whom he gave the final rose. He proposed her for marriage during the 14th season of The Bachelor. The couple got engaged in March. Sadly, Jake decided to break up after some months.

They split over the phone while he was filming for Drop Dead Diva in Atlanta and Vienna was in Los Angeles. Maybe the long-distance relationship just did not work out for them.

Vienna recently said yes to the love of her life.  His fiancee Todd Allen is an Orlando UCF Alumni.


He asked....I said Yes! I love you with all of my heart Todd I can't wait to spend my life with you. #engaged

The same year he had two consecutive unsuccessful relationships. In February 2010, he was seen for the first time with his new girlfriend Meghan Jones, a Dallas-based wedding planner whom he had met months after his unpleasant split with ex-fiancée Vienna Girardi.They were seen sitting in the audience for Dancing's 200th episode extravaganza.

5. Kristin Chenoweth(2012-2013)

After Ashley Ann Vickers, Jake being the charming bachelor pilot started dating Kristin Chenoweth in 2012. With Us magazine, Jake revealed:

"We met at an awards show for Hallmark. She hosted and I was presenting an award. She's the one who has the talent and that things are going "great" in their relationship.”

After three months of dating one another, their relationship sadly ended after Kristin reportedly broke up with him. In 2015, Kristin began dating Andrew Pruett, who is the CEO of NRS Sports.

Gay rumors clearing off?

Right now, there has been no news about his current relationship status. However, he was once rumored as a gay man.

Following up his gay rumors, we came to find out that he dated Tanya Douglas from 2008 to 2009. It turns out that he was not sexually attracted to her like he couldn't get intimate with then fiancée Vienna a year later. According to the article dated June 30, 2010, Tanya also told the Star magazine, “I always wondered if he could be. There were a lot of signs. … Jake would get really giddy [with one particular male friend], and the two of them were very touchy-feely”, indicating that she was also suspicious about him being a gay.

Later on August 4, 2010, he cleared off his gay rumors in an interview with Us Magazine saying:

"There was a lack of intimacy because our problems were so heavy. I can't separate love and intimacy and apparently that makes me gay." 

However, when he was directly asked the question if he was gay, he instantly said:

"No, no, one of my best friends is gay. I can't see how someone can look at [Vienna] and find her not attractive."

Since he is probably not dating anyone at the moment, we think all the girls out there still have a chance to be his girlfriend, and luckily get married and be the wife to the guy who flies in the sky.
