There are all kinds of tricks to make a person look taller on screen. Just ask Tom Cruise. As it turns out, Jake Pavelka must have a few tricks up his sleeve because the former Bachelor — who we would have placed at a solid 6 feet — is short. Damn short.
According to online records, Jake is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, but a woman who worked closely with Jake says, "More like five-five or five-six. It's really apparent when you meet him."
Jake's apparent compactness (to put it nicely) is confirmed by an unnamed Bachelor contestant. "I mean, he's so short," she verifies. "Like, really short." Wait, how short does that make Vienna? Every time we've seen the lovebirds together, it looks like Jake is a good two or three inches taller than her. Hmm... is she vertically challenged, or is Jake sporting some lifts?
Luckily for Jake, his Dancing with the Stars partner, Chelsie Hightower, is only 5 feet, 2 inches, meaning he can continue to at least look tall, despite evidence to the contrary. No four-inch heels for you, Chelsie!
