Ladies, take a moment and say your goodbyes — to my pants!
Bless his adventurous heart, Jake Pavelka never stops giving us stuff to talk about. The veteran of Bachelorette 5, Bachelor 14, Dancing With the Stars 10, Bachelor Pad 2, Drop Dead Diva, The Bold and the Beautiful, H8R, and Famous Food — oh and sometimes airplanes — is adding Chippendales host to his resume.
Jake will not be stripping himself (sorry, Erica Rose!), but he will be hosting shows starting February 23 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, in conjunction with Chippendales' 10th anniversary.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jake follows in the footsteps of Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and 98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons, who have both previously served as guest hosts.
“I will be guest hosting the show for four weeks, getting the audience excited for the show as well as closing out the show,” Jake told The Hollywood Reporter. “You know, I've always loved the idea of a live audience. Hosting in front of an unpredictable crowd forces you to draw from the energy of the crowd. It's challenging but also exciting to work off that kind of adrenaline, knowing no two shows will be the same.”
But they will all involve male stripping — just in time for it to (*finally*) make it big in pop culture, thanks to the upcoming film Magic Mike, based partly on star Channing Tatum's past as a male stripper.
“As our society becomes more open-minded, we get to see the other side of things, like male dancers in addition to female," Jake added to THR. "But do you know, what sells even better than sex? Sexy. You don't have to get raunchy to be sexy.”
But it sure helps. Good luck, Jake!
