Bachelor Jake Pavelka Has a New GirlfriendJake Pavelka may be putting his 'Bachelor' days behind him, thanks to new girlfriend Meghan Jones!

The reality show contestant, who split from fiancee Vienna Girardi over the summer, has been dating Jones for a few months and tells PEOPLE he is relieved to find a relationship off-screen.

"[It's] nice," he says. "It's normal."

Despite his desire for privacy, Pavelka, a pilot, hasn't stayed totally out of the public eye. Following his stint on 'The Bachelor,' he competed on the tenth season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' as well as guest-starring on Lifetime's 'Drop Dead Diva." Pavelka has more small-screen stardom in his future as well and has been working on a new series. He says, "I can't tell you anything more about it yet, [but] it's 18 episodes."
