Are Bachelor Pad’s Erica Rose and Jake Pavelka dating?

We saw tonight on ABC’s Bachelor Pad that Erica Rose has a little thing for Jake Pavelka. She expressed admiration of Jake’s package and prowess during a synchronized swimming competition, and told the camera that she hoped Jake won so she could save him from elimination. Jake didn’t win, but he did get a chance to sample Erica’s ample, injected lips during a make-out session.

Erica told Access Hollywood that Jake is a better kisser than Kasey Kahl (Erica briefly hooked Kasey Kahl at a Bachelor reunion before Vienna dated him.) Erica added: “I do know that [Vienna] hates Jake and she thinks he is such a bad guy. I honestly didn’t see that side of him. Around me, he was nothing but very sensitive and caring and very deep and smart.”

InTouch has a source claiming that Erica says she’s in a full-fledged romance with Jake. “‘She says she’s started a romance with Jake. They got together while filming BB2m and she thinks he’s really hot and sweet. She says she wants to see where it goes.”
