No longer having to hide their lightning hot passion, The Bachelor stars Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi stepped out for dinner twice this week in Hollywood.
The somewhat embattled couple put on a united front - in front of the paparazzi at celebrity hot spots, natch - at Koi on Wednesday and The Palm last night.
Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka smiled and greeted photographers as they left last night, enjoying a nice dinner following their visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Asked to comment on his alleged ex's claims that he cheated on Vienna and discussed marriage with her, Pavelka shrugged his shoulders, shaking his head.
"Nah," he replied. Bold, Jake. Bold.
Jake Pavelka: Two dates with Vienna. One blue turtleneck.
Although Pavelka's so-called ex has given interviews on the subject anonymously, reports suggest that the woman in question is 24-year-old Tanya Douglas.
She says Jake promised her he'd come back for her, and the women on The Bachelor meant nothing to him. He says they dated but there was no overlap.
If the vicious rumors are hurting Vienna and Jake, you wouldn't know it.
Walking hand-in-hand and sporting ear-to-ear grins on both occasions this week, the newly engaged duo certainly look like they may just go the distance.
Well, maybe. This is The Bachelor. If not for Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick getting married last weekend, the show would be 0-fer. So, we ask you ...
Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi last?
