We're not trying to read into this photo or anything, but what the heck is going on? And we don't just mean with the guy wearing the funky red-and-black hat in the background. Why is Gia Allemand getting cozy with her Bachelor Season 14 ex Jake Pavelka?

The caption for the photo describes Jake taking “a mystery redhead to Katsuya [restaurant in Los Angeles] for a Friday night treat.” First of all, are we calling that hair red? It seems more like chestnut brown from here. And “mystery”?! That’s Gia freakin’ Allemand, swimsuit model/bikini designer and Bachelor Pad Season 1 veteran. Come on, now!

On Sunday, while on vacay in L.A., New York-native Gia tweeted, "Surfing for the first time today, this should be interesting!!!" and, later, "I officially am obsessed with surfing.... And no I didn't pee in the wetsuit!!!"

Around the same time on Sunday, Jake tweeted, "Awesome day of surfing in Manhattan Beach!"

So they had dinner Friday and then went surfing on Sunday? Gia was Jake’s third choice on The Bachelor Season 14, and on the show she was winner Vienna Girardi’s only real friend. After Vienna and Jake endured their very public split, Gia stayed close with Vienna — until Wes Hayden came between them.

So is this Gia/Jake thing just a casual reunion between old friends or an official taking-of-sides against Team Vienna? Vienna and her new man, Bachelorette Season 6 guard-and-protector Kasey Kahl, have been taking some thinly veiled shots at Jake lately. Is this retaliation? If Jake didn’t want to be photographed, would he have taken Gia to such a well-known paparazzi hangout? Points to ponder...
