Jake contacted his ex-girlfriend the day after taping wrapped, a source told in March.

He tried to convince his ex-girlfriend that he still loved her and the women on the show ­ including Vienna ­ meant nothing to him, the source added.

But despite the relationship road-bump, the couple gushed about impending wedding bliss.

"It's a giant love story," Jake said in March, before turning to Vienna on television and proclaiming: "You're my best friend in the whole world -- and that's the most important thing to me."


Just last month, Girardi, 24, had gushed about a possible summer wedding next year, preferably on the beach or on an island somewhere.

Pavelka chose Vienna, who was loathed among the Bachelor roommates, over the more grounded Tenley Molzahn, in March.

Three months, it is over.
