Former Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars competitor Jake Pavelka unveiled his new girlfriend Monday night. And Meghan Jones, who is a wedding planner, dissed Jake’s former Bachelor fiancé, Vienna Girardi.
“He’s definitely upgraded since his last one,” Meghan laughed to OK! of being Jake’s new gal. And Jake agreed: “I upgraded.”
Jake, who split from Vienna after doing last season’s DWTS, introduced his blonde beauty Meghan on the red carpet at the DWTS 200th episode party at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood. Jake said they’ve been dating about six weeks.
“I think she’s just a bombshell. She’s smart. She brings the best out in me. Things I didn’t even know existed in a woman,” Jake gushed to OK!, while blonde Meghan cooed, “He’s the sweetest guy ever.”
Jake said they were “set up by one of my best friends. She said, ‘Hey, I’ve got this friend I want you to meet.’ It worked out that way.”
Meghan revealed she watched Jake on both The Bachelor and DWTS long before they met and liked what she saw. “I thought he was a doll.”
The former Bachelor has apparently learned from his past. When asked if Meghan could plan their future wedding, Jake smiled to OK!, “We’ve got a lot of steps to take before then. Baby steps. That’s the only way to do it.”
Although Jake laughed about upgrading from Vienna, he also insisted he has no hard feelings about their bitter breakup. “I hear she’s doing really well and I think that’s awesome. She chopped all of her hair off. We have not spoken since the breakup special but I kind of keep track of her a little bit through Twitter and it seems like she’s doing great and I wish the best. It was kind of ugly there at first and then it became amicable.”
But with Jake’s new girlfriend saying she’s an upgrade from Vienna, OK! thinks maybe that could change!
