Bachelor Jake Pavelka will play a single guy on Drop Dead Diva, Lifetime has announced.
Pavelka, 32, will guest star as Toby Davlin, a suitor on a dating show-within-a-show called Finding the One. He begins taping scenes on June 18, and his episode, “Good Grief,” airs Aug. 22.
In the show, he’ll dump one bachelorette for another, leading the producer to be sued “for intentionally conflicting emotional harm.” Says Pavelka, who is engaged to Vienna Girardi in real life, “I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season, and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew.”
It’s not his first acting role. Pavelka — who previously used the stage name Jake Landrum — once starred on Walker, Texas Ranger as a young version of Chuck Norris’ character, Cordell Walker.
Paula Abdul and Chad Lowe have also appeared on the Lifetime show, which airs Sundays at 9 p.m.
