Kristin Chenoweth and
Jake Pavelka's Cozy
Hollywood Date


Jake Pavelka is flyin’ high these days!

In Touch can reveal that the 34-year-old Bachelor star is secretly dating actress Kristin Chenoweth, 42.

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

So are the odd couple undercover lovers or just friends?

"They had lunch and held hands across the table," the eyewitness says of their affection. "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.”

While the Broadway songstress and reality star may seem like a strange pair, both are admittedly very religious— which may play a role in their chemistry.  

“I think it's important to remember that Christianity was based in love and tolerance and forgiveness and acceptance,” Kristen once said of her religious beliefs. “I want people to understand that there is a group of Christians out there who want to be more open and understanding and tolerant and loving of all kinds of people, even the people that don't believe in God at all. I guess that's one of my purposes in this life.”

Similarly, Jake was once asked, “What is the most important thing in your life?” to which he responded “God.”  And when the pilot was asked for his definition of love, he quoted Scripture.

Perhaps this is actually a match made in Heaven?
