The Bachelorette premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC

Eight years ago, Jake Pavelka starred on The Bachelor. Now, it seems that maybe he’s found love.

While in Las Vegas to help unveil Bachelor slot machines at the MGM Grand over the weekend, the season 14 suitor told PEOPLE that he is firmly off the market.

“We’ve been dating for about eight months. She’s an attorney from Arkansas. She has the most beautiful electric blue eyes that I have ever seen on any human being in my life,” he said of his girlfriend Tiffany.

Pavelka said he was working out a Dallas gym when she first laid eyes on her.

“I was working out and she came walking in in a red dress in high heels, and man, she is a train-stopper,” he said. “She is beautiful inside and out, and it is crazy that God made a person like that.”

Tiffany had no idea that Pavelka was once handing out roses to women vying for his heart. He told her on their third date, and he said she was initially hesitant about dating him, but her reservations subsided.

“She’s been smart to guard her heart,” he said. “With her, I’m dating up.”

The Bachelorette premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
