We've got a situation: Jake Pavelka thinks he has a hotter six-pack than Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
"I have better abs than he does, that’s for damn sure!" he told UsMagazine.com Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Easy A.
But he had some good words for the 28-year-old MTV reality stud: He thinks he'll succeed on Dancing With the Stars.
"He comes with a big fan base; he is going to do well with votes," said Pavelka, 32, who competed on the hit ABC show last season. "My favorite would be Michael Bolton because he is dancing with Chelsie [Hightower, Pavelka's former partner]."
Even though they clashed off-camera, Pavelka said, "I have a soft place in my heart for Chelsie.”
How has post-reality TV life been for Pavelka?
"Busy!" he told Us. "I just started filming a new series. I’m a working actor! I signed on for 18 episodes. I haven’t been cleared to talk about it yet, but it will probably start airing in about four months."
He told Us it's a "dark comedy" and he has a supporting role.
"I couldn't believe it when they asked me to do it!" he said.
Is he dating again?
Said the former Bachelor, "Of course!"
