Has Jake Pavelka found love outside The Bachelor — with actress Kristin Chenoweth?? That’s what Life & Style is reporting. The mag claims that the pair are secretly dating. “Kristin and Jake walked into Joey’s Cafe in West Hollywood on Nov. 13 and sat together at a cozy table,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “They both had sunglasses on like they didn’t want to be recognized.”
According to the onlooker, the two were quite affectionate during their date. “They had lunch and held hands across the table,” the eyewitness continues. “They started to kind of nuzzle and Jake seemed so into Kristin.”
It appears Jake, 34, is quite smitten with Kristin, 44. “He looked like he was starstruck and in love at the same time — just beaming and smiling the whole time,” the eyewitness says.
Before revving up this relationship, Kristin dated producer Aaron Sorkin for several years. Jake was famously engaged to Vienna Girardi, who won his heart on The Bachelor in 2010. The two split later that year.
“I want to be married,” Kristin said last year. “I feel finally ready for that. Possibly [becoming] a mom someday, even if it’s to animals. My goals might be different than doing all these amazing career things. I think the next chapter will be focusing more on my personal life.”
This seems like such a strange couple to me. But isn’t love funny…. who knows!
