"The Bachelor" is flying solo again. Jake Pavelka and Vienna Giraldi, the lovey-dovey couple who met and became engaged in front of millions of viewers on the 14th season of the ABC dating series, have called off their engagement, according to Pavelka's spokeswoman.

Janice Lee said "Jake and Vienna have split. They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time." No additional details were provided.

After choosing 23-year-old marketing representative Giraldi on "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love," 32-year-old pilot Pavelka competed on the 10th season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" and was eliminated fifth from the competition.

Only four of the 13 previous couples who met on "The Bachelor" are still together.
