With filming currently under way on the new season of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” pilot Jake Pavelka tells AccessHollywood.com correspondent, Laura “Dish of Salt” Saltman that he has met his future wife.

“She is in Los Angeles right now. I have met Mrs. Pavelka,” Jake revealed on a group date for the show.

To be fair the 31-year-old Texan says he has not officially chosen the woman he’ll marry yet, but that she is among the 25 hopefuls currently vying for his love.

“I don’t know who the one is yet but she is one of the girls that is here with me on the show,” Jake admitted.

With a few weeks of filming under his belt, Jake believes he has been making the right choices so far when it comes to elimination. He says he isn’t fearful of making a mistake and choosing the wrong woman like last season’s “The Bachelor” contestant, Jason Mesnick, did when he proposed to Melissa Rycroft and then dumped her on the “After The Final Rose” special in favor of his second choice, Molly Malaney.

“It doesn’t scare me. I am going to let my heart lead,” he says. ‘I think Jason Mesnick in the end wound up with the right decision. I understand they are engaged. I bumped into Molly a couple of weeks ago in the airport and she is just giddy over that guy. So he is walking on a good path.”

Back to Mrs. Pavelka. So, what type of woman will win Jake’s heart?

“I’m looking for the woman who absolutely has a heart of gold. We’re all gonna be ugly in the end. Looks are only skin deep.”
