Jake Pavelka's dating strategy has apparently gone from playing to the cameras to hiding from them.

The former second-season Bachelor Pad and The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love star has secretly been dating Kristin Chenoweth, In Touch Weekly reported Wednesday.

"Kristin and Jake walked into Joey's Cafe in West Hollywood on Nov. 13 and sat together at a cozy table," a source told In Touch. "They both had sunglasses on like they didn't want to be recognized."

Pavelka and the singer and actress were reportedly flirty and affectionate while on their quiet date.

"They had lunch and held hands across the table," the source added. "They started to kind of nuzzle and Jake seemed so into Kristin. He looked like he was starstruck and in love at the same time -- just beaming and smiling the whole time."

The 34-year-old pilot from Los Angeles, CA -- who starred in The Bachelor's fourteenth season in 2010 after originally appearing on The Bachelorette's fifth season -- reportedly dated Ashley Ann Vickers, a model who competed on the second season of CMT's The Bachelor-like Sweet Home Alabama reality dating series, in late 2011.

Before Vickers, Pavelka dated Meghan Jones, a Dallas wedding planner, in Fall 2010 following his messy June split from former The Bachelor fiancee Vienna Girardi.

Pavelka and Girardi both awkwardly competed against one another on Bachelor Pad 2, which aired in the Summer 2011, but Girardi made it much further in the game as Pavelka was eliminated during the season's third episode.
