For the five people who actually care, the last bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and his would-be bride, Vienna Girardi, have predictably broken up. There were rumors of trouble in this showbusiness pairing from the start. Jake’s ex girlfriend spoke out to say that he told her he loved her well after proposing to Vienna and the show, and we heard that Vienna was only scheming to land Jake to get famous. Vienna has a troubled background including a failed marriage to an Iraq veteran who claims she slept with his best friend and stole all his money to pay for a boob job while he was deployed overseas. She was also reportedly planning more plastic surgery in a futile attempt to get famous “like Heidi Montag.” Well Vienna has earned some more headlines with this breakup, but she better plan something fast if she wants to prolong the public’s very mild to nonexistent interest in her.

Bachelor Jake Pavelka and fiancee Vienna Girardi have called it quits, a rep for the couple tells

“Jake and Vienna have split and appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time,” the rep tells Us.

Pavelka, 32, surprised fans on The Bachelor last season when he chose Girardi , 24, who often clashed with the other women, over contestant Tenley Molzahn. On the finale, he claimed he was in love with both Molzahn and Girardi, but ended up popping the question to Girardi because he felt more of a spark with her.

Shortly after his decision, he told Ellen DeGeneres he was also impressed by Girardi’s “values and spirituality and different things like that … I just realized, ‘Wow, we really line up.’”

“We make each other glow inside and out,” Girardi, an ex-Hooters waitress, also gushed to Extra.

The news comes as a surprise as the two seemed tighter than ever: During Pavelka’s recent stint on Dancing With the Stars, Girardi was often in the audience rooting him on.

“Chelsie [Hightower, his partner] has been great,” he told Us of his final dance on the show’s finale. “I really enjoyed it, but dancing with my beautiful fiancee really was special.”

Earlier this month, they even took a trip to Disneyland, where Pavelka said he would be happy to wed Girardi in the “land of happies!”

Even though she told E! News they wouldn’t wed “for a few years,” they were already talking babies as of this past March.

“We want five kids,” he said in the E! interview.

No word if she’ll be giving back the $50,000, 3-carat ring by Neil Lane she received from Pavelka on the show.

Jake prolonged his 15 minutes with a decent showing on Dancing With The Stars this year, but I have a feeling that unless he hooks up with a minor starlet, gets a DUI or is arrested we won’t be hearing about him for some time. The Frisky reports that Vienna was seen flirting with a TV actor I’ve never heard of called Gregory Michael from Greek. If she wants to land another D-Lister she better put on her game face while she’s still able to get access to events. Barring that, she can always chose the Heidi Montag route to fame with a new face. I bet it will take her 6 weeks before she’s showing off her plastic surgery in one of the secondary rags like In Touch or Life & Style. It looks like she’s already had a nose job recently.

    Oh My God NOOOOOO!

    I really thought this one would last!

    sob, sniff, boo hoo

    (what’s the smiley for sarcasm?)

  2. Jackson says:

    Who? What?
    Do people still watch these shows??

  3. Abby says:

    No big surprise… when did this happen? He’s still talking about VIenna like no big deal on his twitter as of like, June 19…

  4. piglatinforcows says:

    Hahah..yawn. zzzzzz.

  5. DD says:

    If these two crazy lovebirds can’t make it, what hope do the rest of us have?

  6. bellaluna says:

    Two famewhores couldn’t make it work strictly for the fame they so desired?! Colour me shocked!

  7. NayNay says:

    This seems to be the way that these shows end. I guess that means, that going on tv, and having your every moment televised, cannot be a good thing, and certainly will not bring true love.

  8. lucy2 says:

    She already looks really fake. Yuck.

    Anyone going on these shows at this point is just looking for fame. It’s really gross.

  9. Ellen Smith says:

    Frosted eyeshadow? And yes, regardless of whether she’s a fame whore, she needs a nose job.

  10. mary jones says:

    This girl is one of the fugliest I’ve ever seen. She is cross eyed with a huge nose.

  11. Brooke says:

    I don’t watch TV so have never seen this show, but tell me – how much fame can possibly be involved with being the third Duff sister? She needs to canter on back to the nowhere from whence she came. The dude is alright looking I guess, but if you are reduced to this level of prostitution maybe you should seek other employ.

  12. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    WHAT?????????????THIS CANNOT BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Feebee says:

    I was thinking she looked a bit like a Kate Gosselin younger sister. She’s not as hated but it’s worse for her, total indifference.

    Obvious total amateur at famewhoring. If she had any sense she would have left Jake to the other one and negotiated to be the next Bachelorette to prolong her fame but alas not our interest.

  15. debbie says:

    Quick…somebody call Kate Gosselin! Didn’t she have a thing for Jake? I read that in one of the tabloids! Can you just see the new show–Jake and Kate Plus 8????

  16. Isa says:

    He is cute now, but he is gonna have some major lines on his face when he gets older.

  17. irena NL says:

    Knew he was never into her. How much did he make pretending?

  18. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    Men who star on this show become just D list enough to get invites to the Playboy Mansion and events where they meet aspiring models. That’s the only goal. Just date some chick long enough to be a minor celebrity who gets to pop up on The Soup and do the talk show circuit. The goal is to have access to women he might otherwise not be allowed to meet. And I DON’T mean the contestants. So, no one is at all surprised.

  19. Patrice says:

    Uhhh, I’m pretty sure you can only “break-up” if you were actually in a relationship at some point (which these two CLEARLY never were).

  20. Patrice says:

    Oh and as far as the ring, the contestants on the show are cotracted to return it to producers if they never actually wed. I only know this because I remember all sorts of legal drama a few years back when one of the female contestants refused to do this and tried to sell the ring on ebay.
    Naturally she was sued for the value of the ring and returned it/paid its value to ABC.

  21. Stop Kidding Yourself says:



  22. WTF?!? says:

    Please. They broke up because he is obviously, painfully gay.

  23. boohoo codes says:

    I do like the way you have framed this particular challenge plus it does indeed supply me some fodder for thought. However, from everything that I have observed, I simply hope as the actual opinions pack on that individuals keep on point and not start on a soap box regarding the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this exceptional point and even though I do not really agree with the idea in totality, I respect your viewpoint.
