Michelle Kujawa was one of the 25 contestants who competed for the heart of Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love. She claims that she came on the show to marry Jake and to have babies with him right away.
In the first episode of The Bachelor, she flew over to Jake with her arms out, hoping to become his co-pilot, and got too emotional when she thought she wouldn’t get some one-on-one time with him. Though Jillian and Ed, as well as the viewers, were a bit skeptical about Michelle, Jake decided to keep her in the competition, making her a part of the top 15. By the second episode, though, she was convinced that Jake was no longer into her so she told Jake and the other contestants that she wants to leave.
Michelle stayed until the third episode of The Bachelor in which she became part of the group date at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. In the same episode, she asked Jake for a kiss but was not satisfied with it so she threatened to leave again only this time, Jake called her bluff and sent her home.
After her elimination on The Bachelor, Michelle lingered in the reality TV circuit as one of the cast members of the first season of Bachelor Pad, where she competed with other contestants from the franchise for $250,000. She was, however, eliminated in the first episode of the competition. In 2014, she joined the cast of Bachelor in Paradise.
