Personal Life

Pavelka was educated at Calallen High School in northwest Corpus Christi, Texas(1997-2001)[1] and the University of North Texas(2001-2003).[1][2] At UNT, he studied business and was certified as a trainer.[3]

Pavelka had been involved in athletics from an early age; his mom took him to the track from 4th grade[4] and he played football in both his senior year and at college,[5] although he later gave this up after sixteen years devoted to the sport.[3] This choice allowed him to put more effort into health and fitness.[3]

Pavelka states that Ed Conners gave him his first break in the industry,[4] encouraging him to enter his first bodybuilding competition at the age of 20, where he came in fourth.[5]

He frequently flew to LA from this point on,[3] to continue bodybuilding/shoots and started a personal training business[5] with Australian Fitness Star David Rylah.[4] Having become disenchanted with a bodybuilding lifestyle, Pavelka gave it up and worked for a commercial construction company in Texas for about a year.[5][4]

On 07/07/07 Pavelka decided to move to California, citing a 'spiritual experience' - spurred on to write a five and ten year career plan - he eventually moved to Long Beach, California[4] on September 2, 2007, where he has since emphasized promoting a holistic healthy lifestyle.[5]

Since then, he has appeared in numerous fitness magazines - and, by October 2008, had appeared as a cover model on three titles in the space of only six months.[5]

Film & TV

Pavelka has recently increased his media profile via his work on television's DietTribe. He originally didn't want to do a reality show, but realised DietTribe's concept could have a significant impact on its audience.[4] His agent, Gar Lester, suggested he audition - which also involved him putting together a diet and exercise program.[3] The first series was shown on Lifetime from January 5th 2009 10/9c[6] and a second series has been airing since October 2nd 2009.[7]

In October 2008, Pavelka announced he would appear in a comedy web series, The Rise and Fall of Tuck Johnson,[5] playing the character Peter Porker.

On 19th January 2009,[8] Pavelka also appeared in an episode of Rita Rocks, entitled 'It's My Party.'[9]

Pavelka's Body

Pavelka has several tattoos: his first being a Japanese symbol for inner power/inner strength on his left shoulder[4]; as well as a cross on his right arm; an inscription for 'Fear No Man' in Japanese on his stomach; 'For My Brother' in cursive writing on his side; the alpha & the omega on his wrist and a cross ring on his left ring finger.[4]
