Jake Pavelka's dogs are barking -- from wearing heels!

The Bachelor-turned-dancer published his very first blog post on Tuesday. "I never thought I would say this as a guy," the 32-year-old pilot writes.

"My feet hurt. They put me in these low-rise dance heels. Girls, I will never make fun of you again when you say your feet are sore. I get it!"

Nice pecs! See Jake and other Bachelors without their shirts

Pavelka has been training with partner Chelsie Hightower for his Dancing With the Stars debut March 22. "Today, I got so embarrassed at my freestyle dancing, I had to stop and laugh at myself," he admits. "I caught two of Chelsie's elbows today. Cheek and nose...It's really easy to get hurt on the dance floor."

Vienna Girardi's fiance also looks back on his just-wrapped series. "Season 14 on The Bachelor was incredible! I want to thank everyone for their huge support," he says, adding that he has "received and read all the fan mail...I WILL be writing everyone back."

Pavelka's celeb competitors on DWTS will include Kate Gosselin, Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls, Shannon Doherty and Pamela Anderson.
