Last Friday, Jake Pavelka kicked off his four-week engagement as a Special Celebrity Guest Host at Chippendales in Las Vegas, and the former Bachelor says he's learned a great deal from his hosting stint, especially how to entertain an often rambunctious crowd of lusty ladies.
"Dirty jokes-- I think women like dirty jokes," revealed Pavelka of his go-to strategy for keeping the girls happily distracted while the featured professionals transition from one scene to the next. "The trick with the audience, and I don't have it mastered...is audience participation. Everybody wants to feel like they were part of the show. That's probably why Chippendales has lasted so long. They make their audience feel special."
Although Pavelka arrived to the opening night festivities bare chested, flaunting an enviable 8-pack, he will unfortunately not take part in the dancing end of the sexy revue. "I can't dance like the performers can… I can't dance at that level," admitted Jake humbly. "Those twelve guys there they are trained professional dancers. That's the bulk of the show right there and the most impressive thing is how tight the choreography is."
While he may get a free pass on Chippendales' dancing duties, Jakes says he still gets butterflies each night when he steps out onto that venerated stage. "It's the number one male revue in the world. That's the intimidating part. I'm just a little bitty guy from Texas and I'm the front guy for the franchise… That's pressure."
