Jake Pavelka may have failed at finding love on The Bachelor, but he wasn’t far off when he headed to Los Angeles in his search. Not too far away from the L.A. mansion where he found Vienna Girardi was actress Kristin Chenoweth whom he’s been seeing since last year.
“Kristin and I have been spending time together,” Jake revealed to In Touch Weekly during an event in Los Angeles. “She is wonderful, absolutely wonderful.” However, when asked about the L-word, Jake became immediately guarded. “No comment,” he said, laughing. It sounds like Jake wants to keep that to himself — at least for now.
Jake and Kristin first met at the Hero Dog Awards which brought out one of their first common interests. “We are both dog lovers, and in her case she loves all animals.” Following their first meeting, the two were spotted at dinner and then a concert in Los Angeles, but Jake had stayed mum on their relationship until now.
During the event, Jake also weighed in on what he has learned since he first made his debut on The Bachelor. “I had a very high profile relationship and it does put an unnecessary strain on something that could be beautiful,” he explained. That must be why he’s being so secretive about his feelings for Kristin!
