WFAA8's GMT puts former Bachelor lover boy back in local spotlight

Dallas-bred Jake Pavelka, still on a high-profile rebound from his split-up with made-for-TV fiancee Vienna Girardi, will be guest-hosting both the Friday and Monday editions of WFAA8's Good Morning Texas, the station announced Wednesday.

Pavelka, 32 and a pilot by trade, segued from his starring role on last season's The Bachelor to Dancing with the Stars to a recently filmed guest shot on Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva series.

Girardi supposedly grew tired of his "fame whore" tendencies, although she hasn't exactly shied from the spotlight during their several months as a celebrity couple.

"She was watching these doors open for me, and it was causing an intense amount of jealousy," Pavelka says in the upcoming edition of People. He also accuses her of sleeping in while he was out pursuing new ways to capitalize on his Bachelor-fed fame.

Good Morning Texas airs at 9 a.m. weekdays on the Dallas-based ABC affiliate station.
