The woman who says she was seeing Jake "The Bachelor" Pavelka after he proposed to Vienna Girardi is Tanya Douglas from Marianna, Florida, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Until now, her identity has been a secret but as RadarOnline.com reported she is an ex-girlfriend of Jake’s.
As RadarOnline.com reported exclusively, Douglas, 25, came forward for the first time Thursday morning in a radio interview in which her voice was disguised, and revealed that Jake Pavelka contacted her after the taping of The Bachelor and told her that he still loved her. He also said, according to her, that all the women on the show, including Vienna, meant nothing to him.
RadarOnline.com obtained the audio clip of Douglas revealing her explosive confession with radio star Steve Kramer of “That Guy Kramer” on Island 106 in Panama City, Florida.
In the interview, Douglas says that Jake was forced to propose to Vienna. “When you get down on one knee and propose marriage to someone I take that very seriously,” she says, with the audio distorted. “The fact that he did that exclusively because he was instructed to do that, it disappoints me so much.”
While Douglas has not revealed her identity, RadarOnline.com reported days ago that she was preparing to go public within the next week. But we discovered her identity as the scandal surrounding her claims about Jake continued to grow.
Jake denied Douglas’s claims, telling Entertainment Tonight, "The relationship with Douglas was prior to 'The Bachelor,' it simply did not work out," he said. "There was no overlap with that or any other relationship during the show. It is unfortunate that people such as this are trying to financially capitalize on or disparage my incredible relationship with Vienna. I only wish everyone could be as happy for us as we are happy together.”
