'Bachelor' Alum Jake Pavelka Joins the Chippendales!

The airline pilot turned reality star will guest host the world-renowned male-stripper revue for four weeks beginning Feb. 23

Jake Pavelka has graduated from a mansion full of women to a stage full of naked men! The former Bachelor star has announced that he'll be hosting the world-famous male-stripper Chippendales stage show in Las Vegas four four weeks, beginning Feb. 23 and ending March 18. But will he be taking it all off?

Sorry, ladies -- the airline pilot turned reality star says he's going to stay modest.

"As for not stripping, I am the guest host for the run of those weeks, so I'm leaving it to the professionals who have kept this brand thriving since the 1970s," Pavelka, 28, tells The Hollywood Reporter.

On the other hand, he may not be able to resist showing off his abs -- and his Dancing with the Stars moves!

"At this time, he's not officially stripping, but you never know what can happen," a source close to Pavelka tells Us Weekly. "It's a live show and the audience always plays a big factor."

According to the press release, Pavelka "will use his charm, sex appeal and hosting skills to keep the women entertained" in between dance numbers. For Pavelka, the job is a welcome change from performing for TV cameras.

"You know, I've always loved the idea of a live audience," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Hosting in front of an unpredictable crowd forces you to draw from the energy of the crowd. It's challenging but also exciting to work off that kind of adrenaline, knowing no two shows will be the same."

Recent Chippendales guest hosts have included Ronnie Ortiz-Magro from Jersey Shore and Jeff Timmons from the band 98 Degrees.

Before he flies to Vegas, Pavelka will be filming the next few webisodes of his Bachelor recap series, Jake Means War. Watch the latest installment below.

Pavelka split from his Bachelor winner fiancee Vienna Girardi in June 2010. He is now reportedly dating model and Sweet Home Alabama contestant Ashley Ann Vickers. Bet she'll enjoy the show!
