'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka's ex Tanya Douglas says he's only in it for the money

bachelor-jake-pavelka-tanya-douglas.jpgThere may be some evidence from ex Tanya Douglas that "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka's romance with Vienna Girardi is all a sham.

According to the latest issue of Life & Style, Tanya Douglas has proof that Jake was only doing "The Bachelor" for the money.

She claims he said to her, "I know a way I can get out of this financial burden -- I could be the Bachelor. Maybe I can persuade the producers to let you be on the show and be one of the 25 contestants, and then it's rigged for me the whole time, and in the end we can still be together and have the money."

She also claims that after the taping wrapped, Jake continued to call her from a suspicious phone number, which turned out to be a pre-paid cell phone that Douglas believes ABC knew nothing about. She says she has text messages where Jake urges her not to go to the media.

Jake is currently continuing to grace television screens as he competes on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" and Vienna Girardi, his "Bachelor" choice, has been seen by his side at the tapings.
