Bachelor Jake Pavelka is now flying for Delta

The Bachelor‘s Jake Pavelka has resumed the job he had before he became a hated famewhore who appeared on Dancing with the Stars and Drop Dead Diva: He’s piloting commercial airlines for Delta.

Jake “piloted an Oct. 24 Delta flight from Atlanta to Augusta, Ga.,” Us Weekly reports, adding that “Pavelka’s rep confirms to Us that he is indeed flying planes again.” However, a passenger on that flight told the magazine, “The flight attendant asked us not to tell anyone because he didn’t want it to be known. When they announced our captain they just said, ‘Your captain today is Jake’.”

Let’s hope he doesn’t have any angry outbursts and tell air traffic controllers to shut up or tear out the plane’s GPS and hurl it at his co-pilot.
