Former Bachelor Jake Pavelka, 38 is due to make a cameo on Jojo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette…… but he isn’t trying to date her. He’s a friend of her family’s and he is coming to offer some brotherly advice.

7. He dated actress Kristen Chenoweth in 2012.

8: In July of 2011, Pavelka starred on the second season of Bachelor Pad…with his ex Vienna Girardi.

9: He has been on a number of reality shows in addition to The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad including a contestant on VH1’s 2011 reality series Famous Food, The CW’s reality show H8R and in 2014 he was a contestant on Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.

He even starred on the most amazing spoof ever Burning Love in 2012.

Of course the idea of Jake offering Jojo relationship advice is sort of funny since his relationship with Vienna Girardi was an epic disaster, but it will be fun to see him again regardless.
