Gia Allemand Photo

Gia Allemand is a swimsuit model from New York, N.Y. She is vying for the heart of Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor, ABC's long-running reality dating series.

“If you had to label her, you would say ‘vixen,’” host Chris Harrison said. “But she is well-equipped to handle the situation. Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

Whatever that means. Gia Allemand has certainly come on strong of late, wooing Jake with her looks and charm and securing a place in the final five.

Can she overcome the elite competition on the show's hometown dates, though? That we'll have to wait and see. But you best not count this beauty out.
