thebachelor pavelka jake Memo to ABC: Get 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka's name rightWe love the new promo for ABC’s “The Bachelor.” Not only does it feature way too many pilot/flight metaphors, it also mispronounces the name of new Bachelor Jake Pavelka. Video below.

First of all, it’s pronounced “Pah-VEL-cah.” Not “Pel-VAY-ka.” ABC might want to get that right before the show airs. Secondly, all the flight puns need to stop. In this promo alone (for “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” no less) we hear:

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard Rose Air.”

“Your captain today is Jake Palveka (sic).” (We already covered the name thing)

“This heavenly pilot is ready for take-off.”

“Fasten your seatbelts ’cause this bachelor needs to make his connection.”

“Starting Monday, January 4th on ABC, the new Bachelor takes flight. But this trip is bound to get a little bumpy.”
