Gia is a beautiful woman and has a very successful career as a swimsuit model and owns a hair salon and resides in New York. She was 26 years old when she participated in "Bachelor 14" Jake Pavelka. She was eliminated during the 7th rose ceremony.
She is best known for telling Jake that bullies stole her shoes in grade school. She was also one of the ladies who participated in the photo shoot for In Style Magazine. Jake's feelings for her seemed to grow, especially during episode 5. She got a one on one date when in episode 5 they played Hide n' Seek and Spin The Bottle.
Jake and Gia seemed to grow closer during her hometown date but her ability to express her true feelings were blocked in some way. Consequently, she was eliminated, landing in third place.
She appeared on "Bachelor Pad
1" and found herself attracted to Wes Hayden
. Remember him from the "Bachelorette
" season with Jillian Harris
? The Country Music Singer who was looking for fame. He convinced Gia that he had feelings for her. She betrayed her alliance and did not vote him off as agreed. He remained one more week, but was gone after that. Gia exited soon after that too. She and Wes dated for some time but eventually it ended. One factor may have been that her now friend, Vienna, hooked up with Wes. Needless to say, her friendship with Vienna was over.
Gia once again appeared on "Bachelor Pad 2." She and Jake had become friends and Vienna wanted her gone as well as Jake. Gia had a difficulty creating a large alliance and realizing that she would be voted off
quickly, self exited.
She has been linked with some prominent individuals, but nothing truly serious has transpired. I truly hope she finds the man of her dreams some day, but I think at sometimes she is her own worst enemy.
