"The Bachelor” is flying solo again.
Jake Pavelka and Vienna Giraldi, the lovey-dovey couple who met and became engaged in front of millions of viewers on the 14th season of the ABC dating series, have called off their engagement, according to Pavelka's spokeswoman.
Janice Lee said “Jake and Vienna have split. They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time.” No additional details were provided.
After choosing 23-year-old marketing representative Giraldi on “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” 32-year-old pilot Pavelka competed on the 10th season of ABC's “Dancing with the Stars” and was eliminated fifth from the competition.
Never miss a local story.
Out of 14 seasons, only one "Bachelor" relationship endures: Jason Mesnick married Molly Malaney in February. Two couples from five seasons of "The Bachelorette" are still together: first season's Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, who wed in 2003, and Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski.
