Commercial pilot Jake Pavelka, who failed to win Jillian Harris’ heart earlier this year on The Bachelorette, will become Top Gun this winter, with 25 women vying for his attentions on the January 4 season premiere of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.

This will be the 14th edition of ABC’s romance reality series, and its first to be shown in ABC’s selected HDTV format, 720 Progressive.
