Jake Pavelka grew up in Denton, Texas and attended University of North Texas and Embry Engineering University for Aerospace Science.
"Bachelor" Jake Pavelka has opened up about the latest scandal to rock the reality dating franchise.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Rozlyn Papa, 28, was booted from the show after it was revealed she allegedly engaged in a romantic relationship with a producer of "The Bachelor."
"Unfortunately, Rozyln, a girl I had [been] developing feelings for, entered into an inappropriate physical relationship with a producer," Jake told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman on Monday.
On Monday night's episode of the dating show, model Rozyln is shown the door.
Rozlyn claimed last week to Radar Online that her relationship with the "Bachelor" staffer was not sexual, but Jake isn't so sure.
"I have reason to believe it was sexual," Jake told Laura. "Some of the things that were said when she was gone… by the women… The women exposed it."
But Rozyln is now lashing out at ABC. In a new interview with Radar Online, Rozlyn claimed the network made her hide the fact that she has a 7-year-old son. ABC has no comment, but Laura made sure to ask Jake his opinion.
"I heard one of the reasons she left or was thinking of leaving was because she wasn't supposed to tell you about her son," Laura asked.
"I don't' think that's true at all," Jake said. "This is the first time I'm hearing about that. There were other women there who had kids…. The staff seemed to be really sensitive about that. That's – I think – kind of a low blow."
Jake has now bounced back from the booted bachelorette, a model for Model-Logic Wilhelmina, who once posted for Vow Bride magazine and he gave Laura a hint at a future "Bachelor" finalist.
"That's what she would have looked like," Laura said, showing Jake Rozlyn on the cover of the mag.
"I think Gia would look better," Jake smiled.
