During last night's Drop Dead Diva, The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka made his grand acting debut, playing a dating/reality show contestant who's attempting to get an acting career off the ground. So in other words, a giant stretch from real life.

Jake's character is on the witness stand because he was supposedly pressured into choosing one girl over another as the winner of the reality show. He claims the producers of the show gave him "strong suggestions" about who to pick because one girl tested better among audiences than others. Kind of meta, right?

Honestly, it all reminds us a little too much of his interview on The Bachelorette discussing how his engagement to Vienna went down in flames (you can watch that big ol' mess here.)
