Vienna Girardi was Bachelor Jake Pavelka's final pick in Season 14 of The Bachelor. A graduate of the University of Central Florida (with a Bachelor's degree in Interpersonal Organizational Communications), Vienna is a "daddy's girl" who has wrecked the five cars he's given her. She also has a small dog named Chloe that she likes to dress up for "mommy-daughter days."
Vienna was engaged to her pastor's son for four years and broke off the engagement when she was 17. When her ex got remarried within a month, she was upset enough to run off and elope with a guy she barely knew. The guy was Joshua William Riley. They were married on September 6, 2005, and the divorce was finalized on July 18, 2006.
Although she won Jake's heart in the Bachelor finale, the two had a messy breakup that aired in a television special during Season 6 of The Bachelorette in the summer of 2010. Vienna has been linked to many men after Jake — from John Sala and Matt Nordgren to Bachelorette bad boy Wes Hayden — and recently got back together with an old flame after her November 2011 breakup with fellow BP2 contestant, Kasey Kahl.
