Gia Allemand isn’t dating her former Bachelor flame, Jake Pavelka, after all. The Bachelor Pad star’s new squeeze is another professional athlete — NBA star Ryan Anderson. Our girl has a type!

Life & Style ran a pic of Gia, 27, and Ryan, 23, who is 6-foot-10 and plays for the Orlando Magic.

"I've been on an emotional roller coaster between The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, so it's good to find some stability," Gia told Life & Style. "I finally found what I've been looking for."

We knew she had something up when she tweeted on April 26, “It's official I have a boyfriend.... Lol.” @GiaAllemand then added, “Ok since everyone keeps asking me who my boyfriend is here he is....... My cutey pie :)”

She linked to the photo above, which was so goofy we couldn’t tell whether Gia was kidding or making an official introduction. But that is the same guy from the Life & Style photo — without the fake ‘fro — so congrats, Ryan and Gia!

This appears to be Gia’s first serious basketball player boyfriend. She was dating hockey player Chris Campoli while flirting with Wes Hayden on Bachelor Pad, and she also dated former Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano.

Look out, golfers. You’re next!
