Jake Pavelka is ready to test his acting chops in a role that isn't entirely unfamiliar.
The former The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love star and Dancing with the Stars tenth-season celebrity participant will star in an August 22 episode of Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva, Us Weeklyreported Monday.
"I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season, and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew," Pavelka told Us.
The 32-year-old will play Toby Davlin, a suitor on a dating show called Finding the One who dumps one bachelorette in favor of another -- leading the producer to be sued for "for intentionally conflicting emotional harm," according to Us.
Pavelka will begin taping scenes for the episode -- titled "Good Grief" -- on June 18.
