Vienna Girardi has put a price on seeing ex-fiancé Jake Pavelka again -- and it's a jaw-dropping $250,000. has exclusively learned the broken-hearted Bachelor winner has rejected a television request to have her and the pilot she grounded in the same room together for one final time.

Producers of the hit ABC reality TV show dreamed of filming a second reunion between the warring couple because the first one -- which aired Monday night -- didn't quite go to plan.

While Jake was prepared to give it a go, we’re told Vienna wasn't.

"She wanted a quarter of a million dollars to face him again," a source familiar with the negotiations told

"But producers won't pay that."

The high price of love has effectively dashed hopes of what would have been a highly-anticipated and top-rating sequel to their first showdown.

The Bachelor couple revealed they were breaking up last month, days after Vienna was photographed stepping out with Greek TV star Gregory Michael.


Although rumors have been circulating that Vienna cheated on Jake, she has refuted the claims.

"I know Jake and I knew that as soon as we broke up he was going to run to a media outlet and tell his side of the story," Vienna told Bachelor host Chris Harrison during the duo's he-said, she-said two-hour interview.

"I wanted to make sure I had a voice also. I haven't had a voice this entire time."
