Jake Pavelka is getting ready to start his new job as the host of the bare-chested Chippendales show in Las Vegas and he exclusively told RadarOnline.com that not only is he terrified about the live audience, but he’s been told his job is to “get the girls into their underwear!”
A hunky alum of the reality show The Bachelor, Jake is making his debut appearance with the Chippendales on February 23 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, and he says he’s afraid of going out on stage.
Keeping a good sense of humor about his new gig, Jake admitted that he’s “been nervous for a month,” about appearing before a live audience.
“Everything I’ve done before this has been scripted shows, or taped, but this is the real deal.
“I’m intimidated to shake it on stage,” Jake said.
Showing off his incredible abs wouldn’t really disappoint the fans in the audience, but Jake said he isn’t going to be stripping or performing. “I can’t dance! These Chippendales have choreography, they’re professionals. I’m going to have costume changes but John Cook the choreographer told me my job is to get the girls into their underwear.”
Going out for a job in Sin City isn’t going to affect his relationship with girlfriend Ashley Ann Vickers, who is a model in Los Angeles.
“Ashley is overwhelmingly supportive. Our relationship is black and white so there is no room for her to worry.”
Yearning to leave his troubled relationship with Vienna Girardi behind, Jake said he doesn’t mind talking about her, but wishes he didn’t have to because of Ashley. “I feel bad for her that my ex’s name keeps coming up.”
Check out Jake as the host of the Chippendales show starting February 23 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
