Well its official, Jake is the new Bachelor. He and his lovelies will be coming to a TV near you in January.

Word is that ABC has been looking for a pilot for awhile so no big surprise that he got the gig over Reid & Kip though there have been some rumblings on FORT that both Reid and Kip turned ABC down.

Jake wasn't a favorite during Jillian's season but that won't keep me from watching as I find the whole process quite scripted now and just watch for the snarking and bad fashion choices!

Kristin Baldwin isn't a fan either:

This is a good choice - I'm sure there are plenty of women who would be happy to snag a handsome pilot sometime actor wannabe family man ;)

The problem with Kip is that he doesn't have a real job (at least I can't remember him having one), and he seems to lack in a bit of emotion, which is so necessary for this show. Jake has already shown he can wrestle with his emotions and even shed a few tears.

Reid appeals to some but not others, and being in Philly RE isn't quite a sexy as a pilot with an accent, no?

Plus, we've never met Jake's family, so that's a whole new thing, and he'll get to take them on some interesting dates if he's doing the flying.

I might actually have to watch this :)

Yes, Jake will throw himself into this whole-heartedly. Reid and Kip might have been too reserved for the producer's tastes.

Being a nice and compassionate guy, I can see him going into agonies when he has to eliminate women as the season goes on.

As I think about it, I'm kinda curious as to what kind of women he will go for - someone he can take home to mom, or someone who will compensate for his boring side?

The making out might be awkward though - but who knows, he might surprise us!

Last season sucked me in so bad I thinking I'm already looking forward to this.

Someone posted on FORT that Reid posted on facebook last night that being the Bachelor "just wasn't for him" or something like that. So yeah, I agree, his neurotic, reserved personality didn't mesh very well with the concept of the show. And the same with Kip. Neither one was a good fit for the way the show is produced now. And I think they both knew that.

And It will be interesting to see how Jake fares with the making out with multiple girls. I can't see him pulling a Bob but he might surprise us all! And I'll admit, he's looking really cute in all his ABC media release pictures.

Has anyone seen the trailers for Jake's season yet? http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2009/11/memo-to-abc-get-bachelor-jake-pavelkas-name-right.html

Apparently, the season is subtitled "On the Wings of Love." Where is the barf emoticon? They should have just called it "Mile High Club."

In related news, the entertainment media is reporting that Mary and Byron have finally split after six years.

ooo goody! Early thoughts:

There are three women associated with the flight industry, which will no doubt piss off all the models and account managers because in theory he'll get to know them first. One is a flight attendant (Kathryn), so might be intimidated by the commercial pilot (Sheila) and the captain with the Air National Guard (Elizabeth), but she's a *corporate* flight attendant and might have a bit more experience in entertaining men ... although the commercial pilot is only 25, so what could she be flying? Then again, what does Jake actually fly?

Two good Canadian girls, so will have to root for them. Tiana is a medical technician from the west, while Jessie is in cosmetics from a fairly well-to-do suburb of Toronto.

Bitch potential from Gia the NY-based swimsuit model and Kim, the NBA dancer, and I'm not buying that Kristen is only 25.

Elizabeth the LA-based nanny from Nebraska would seem to be a good fit in the tradition of Tiger's formerly perfect life, and oddly, there's a 32 year old "homemaker," Valisha. One wonders what she's living on, and who is minding her home while she's away.

And is it me, or does Tenley look familiar? Have we seen her on something else?

Saw that they were going to be released today and I totally forgot to check when I got back from lunch!

Will have to look more closely at who's who later!

Jake is a pilot for ASA, one of the regional airlines that fly out of DFW; so he pilots those 50 seater jets to small town USA. I don't know what airline Sheila is employed by but I'm sure the gang over at FORT will figure it out and when they do, I'll be sure to post.

I think Kathryn can be an early contender as she's orginally from Kentucky and will have that southern charm going for her.

OMG, Kristen totally has to be pushing 40!!! I won't believe she's 25 unless her REAL birth certificate is produced by ABC!

Somehow the Bachelor/Bachelorette always seems to attract some people with really. . . well, ODD names. Channy? Valisha? All the photos look massively retouched as well, but that's nothing new. I haven't watched this for several seasons but I somehow can't keep away from the little bits of gossip surrounding this fake-search-for-a-spouse journey/fantasy/dream come true.

Ok, spent some time this weekend lurking over at FORT, to see what the gang has come up with pre-show.

ABC is promoting something very "shocking" to have taken place early on. Rumor is that 1. one of the contestants has a fling with a crew member or 2. two of the girls hook up. Will be interesting to see what happened and how Fleiss will spin it!

And of course I looked at the thread about who goes far. If anyone is interested in who is on the list, PM me!!

Thanks Catherine! I like spoilers about the people and what happens on the show, but not the actual boot order/who wins, so thanks for keeping those separate.
