Stepping out of the limelight and meeting his new girlfriend "is nice," Pavelka toldPeople after Monday night's show. "It's normal."
The Bachelorstar said he met Jones "a couple months ago and we just clicked."
Pavelka -- who split from former The Bachelor fiancee Vienna Girardi in June and been keeping homes in both Los Angeles and Dallas -- said he and Jones have been maintaining a long-distance relationship but the separation hasn't posed any problems.
In addition, Jones is originally from California, and the couple said they plan to spend Thanksgiving there together.
"I am from here -- I have family in Orange County," Jones noted.
"My parents are coming out and my brother is still here," Pavelka added.
Pavelka also said he is still pursuing acting and working on a new upcoming series, but declined to reveal any additional details.
"It's 18 episodes," Pavelka said. "I can't tell you anything more about it yet."
