Jake Pavelka is a Drop Dead Diva

by at . Comments

Dallas pilot Jake Pavelka vied for Jillian Harris' affections on The Bachelorette, then starred on The Bachelor, then joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars.

It's been a heck of a reality TV run for the hunk, and it's not over yet!

The 32-year-old will guest star on Drop Dead Diva, playing Toby Davlin, a suitor on a dating show (featured within the actual show) entitled Finding the One.

Talk about typecasting. In the show, he'll dump one bachelorette for another, leading the producer to be sued "for intentionally conflicting emotional harm."

He begins taping scenes on June 18 for the August 22 episode.

Says Pavelka, who is engaged to Vienna Girardi in real life, "I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season, and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew."

It's not his first acting role. Pavelka, who used to go by Jake Landrum, was on Walker, Texas Ranger as a young version of Chuck Norris' character, Cordell Walker.

Sadly (or thankfully), Jake has no plans to return to the ABC show that put him on the map this season - unless The Bachelorette spoilers we have are all wrong.

OMG are you kidding me??? That is a great show and now they are ruining it by putting him on there! I agree Lee - they have lost a viewer! Why doesn't he just ride off in the sunset with Vienna and live happily ever after - does the rest of us have to continually be subjected to him?

Great Jake, another show I enjoyed until now. I won't be watching. I encourage everyone to go on the Lifetime site and express their thoughts. Drop Dead Diva has lost a viewer. Next I guess Vienna will be quest starring as something or someone. Oh brother, where does it end?
