'The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love' gets premiere date

Commercial pilot Jake Pavelka, who failed to win Jillian Harris’ heart earlier this year on The Bachelorette, will become Top Gun this winter, with 25 women vying for his attentions on the January 4 season premiere of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.

This will be the 14th edition of ABC’s romance reality series, and its first to be shown in ABC’s selected HDTV format, 720 Progressive.

    Jake is sooo good looking and so sweet, I can’t wait till this Bachelor run starts!

  • RK

    On the wings of love? Puke.

    • Luis

      Ha! I thought the same thing! What does that even mean?!

      • Emily

        He’s a pilot and airplanes have wings. Duh. I still think he’s BORING and a bit of a sore-loser/stalker…

      • Luis

        Yes, he’s a pilot and what not, but that that is still a meaningless title

    • Starr

      It’s a cheesy tag line, but what were you expecting from The Bachelor? Haha

  • jado

    box of rocks

  • I agree

    Yes, please stop watching this show, it’s nothing but dreck.

  • Mike

    I know some are looking forward to Jake and others are dreading him, but the POTENTIAL is there for a very interesting season. With Jillian, all Jake had to do was focus on one woman and sort of make himself perfect for her – how does he do that with so many women to choose from, all with different personalities. How does someone who seems wound so tight and thinks he’s a “one of the good guys” deal with having to hurt women week after week. This could be one hot mess of a season.

    • Starr

      But it could also make for great TV. I liked Jake on the season with Jillian, and I think he showed enough personality. Yes, he’s a little too clean-cut, but maybe the 25 women or whatever will loosen him up. It will be interesting to see him get rattled by having to break some hearts.

    • Batch

      It’s the women who need to show their personality now. For the Bachelor (or Bachelorette), they don’t have to do anything because the 25 are trying to get his attention.

  • Daphne

    “on the wings of love” wow i threw up in my mouth a little. The guy is a total wank, makes my skin crawl with the tom-cruise-esque theatrics and $hit-eating grin — i’ll pass thanks

  • Jane

    OMG…I can’t wait to see those women come out of the limos!!!!!!!!!

    • Jane

      Meant to say see them come out of the limos in HD

  • I agree with Mike

    I’m betting Mike hit the nail on the head with the “one hot mess of a season” comment. In Jake you have another Jason Mesnick personality type, with built-in reluctant hero cred from last season, and a big female fan following from last summer. Add the nice guy image to boot, and you’ve got a recipe for sensational he said/she said drama, unmasked emotions, crazy, funny, awkward dates, and of course the quest for the fairy tell, happy ever after ending. Maybe that’s what gives this show such an ageless appeal.

  • Perdida

    Jake is sooooo creepy crawly and socially weird… I can’t wait for the season to start! All you naysayers must not read Kristen Baldwin’s recaps. Absolutely freaking hilarious, the one-two punch of watching the show and then reading her recap is pure golden entertainment.

    • A

      Can EW.com get a “like” function on the comments? Because I totally agree.

  • On the Wings of Cynicism

    If the title is any indication, this might be the most (unintentionally) hilarious season yet. I want FULL recaps from Baldwin, not that PopWatch B.S. Something has to get me through the winter…

  • Samantha

    Hopefully Jake is going to pick the Right woman.Who wants to be with him.When it begin January 4th 2010.

  • Jon

    Ah Another season of inflicting this
    painful garbage on the viewing
    public. Even if you don’t watch (I
    NEVER DO) you have to put up with
    the godawful promos.

  • still me

    He’s beyond creepy! He fell in luv in 5 mins and didn’t realize he was an overbearing, needy, whiny lil boy.
    Fleiss is gonna f*ck w/ him so bad; it might be worth watching this train wreck!

  • I agree with MIke too!

    oh boy only 21 comments, that about says it all for this season’s bachelor, i love it for ew’s recaps and for this is the final rose’s blog, who cares who he picks, but u have to also figure in the texas gene, what he deems to be the perfect LADY, and perfect ladies do not good reality tv make…..i’ll be watching, although my two twentyish daughters are not feeling him at all. give us a gilles marini bachelor type……now we’re talking ratings
