Jake Pavelka Isn't Ready to Date … Yet
"I'm not dating yet. I'm still just taking time for me," the former Bachelor told PEOPLE at the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in Chicago, right before he got ready to run the 13.1 miles. "I'm definitely doing some 'me time' right now."
That didn't stop him, however, from weighing in on this season of the Bachelorette.
"I feel like I know Ali Fedotowsky pretty well," he said. "I think any decision she makes is going to be the right one for her. She could go either way."
Just being on the show, he said, is a transformative experience. "You grow up so much during that show," he added. "You're not the same person when you start that you are when you finish. It's an incredible experience."
