the_thornOK. I thought I was finished posting about this round of The Bachelor. As crazy as it sounds, there was really was an After the Final Rose Part 2 (just when you thought it was safe to return to ABC). Of course, I came this far with the “amazing journey” and just had to see what part 2 had to offer. 😉

Thankfully Melissa was not there. Enough public pain already. They did bring in a handful of this season’s cast off women to weigh in on Jason’s decision. The girls were split in their opinions of Jason’s actions. There is some news circulating around the web containing emails melissa_jasonsupposedly between Jason and Melissa after the taping of the 1st After the Final Rose. Click on this pic. for source if you want to read some and determine for yourself what you think about the content.

Many of you watched the show, so I don’t really need to re-cap the blow-by-blow. What was interesting to me was the contradictory nature of some of Jason’s comments while he and Molly were sitting together being interviewed about their relationship by Chris Harrison.

jason_mollyWhat is it that Jason finds most important in his new relationship with Molly?

Is it the chemistry (which he said went south with Melissa)?
Was it the passion?
Was it how Molly is with his son Ty?

No! It is the fact that she is his “best friend.” Hmm… does that sound familiar to anyone else? I thought so. It is because that is the very reason Jason gave for letting Jillian go. He re-stated the “best friends” factor at least 3 times when questioned by Chris Harrison. I don’t find anything surprising anymore when it comes to Jason and his ability to flip-flop his way toward “love.”

jason_jillianSpeaking of Jillian:  the best friend searching, hot dog testing, hot tub cavorting Canadian is going to be the next Bachelorette. I think most of us saw that one coming. She did tell Chris that her goal for her next shot at finding love on TV was for her father to not have to see her in a hot tub again. We will see about that! 🙂

You know, all through this season (and frankly during Jason’s last TV appearance on The Bachelorette) I have often commented to my honey how odd it seems that the show went out of its way to characterize Jason as a “single dad”–with zero mention of Ty’s mom or her possible involvement in Ty’s life. Clearly someone has to be taking care of Ty while dad is gone for weeks at a time “looking for love.” Who is Ty’s mom? Jason’s ex-wife jasons_ex_2Hilary Mesnick (now Hilary Madison Wynn?). Evidently she lives in Seattle. And as I suspected is more involved in Ty’s life than The Bachelor’s characterizations would lead the public to believe (per this snippet, click on pic. for source).

I guess one can tell if their show has hit the “big time” when conspiracy theories begin to circulate. Believe it or not (or whether you even cared to know or not) there are conspiracy theories surrounding Season 13 of The Bachelor. I’ll let you go check it out here (or here) if you are even the slightest bit interested. 😉

If you couldn’t care less? We now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging. 😉

proposesSo here is the scene:proposal

The Bachelor Jason Mesnick romantically proposes to Melissa in New Zealand saying: “I am completely in love with you… I love you, will you marry me?”

weeping_jason(Of course, only moments after weeping profusely about having to let Molly go).  dump_molly1

But I digress, after Jason’s “amazing” romantic proposal to Melissa the new couple jump into the pool fully clothed along with Jason’s son Ty–quite the happy new family scene. Hmm… not for long.

Cut to 6 weeks later and After the Final Rose Jason says to his new fiance “Um yeh, something happened with the chemistry.” And then after dumping Melissa on TV he says to Molly “I am hoping we can get some coffee or something.” WTF Jason? Really?!

Well, at least for once Chris Harrison was not exaggerating when he said it was ‘‘most dramatic season finale in Bachelor history.” Chris gives a little more on his blog: “Jason proposed to Melissa right before Thanksgiving over in New Zealand. It was an awesome day and night. They couldn’t have been happier. … They were both very much in love and the scene couldn’t have been better. It appeared to us he had found a terrific woman who would become his wife. I talked to Jason and you_bastardMelissa several times after the proposal and all was going well. After the holidays something changed…” and that is all we heard from Jason as TV land watched Jason dump Melissa in front of millions of viewers.ring_back

Melissa, of course, appears confused and crushed–whispering under her breath “you’re such a bastard.” Finally before leaving (the conspicuously audience free show set) she says to Jason “don’t call me–leave me alone.” Understood!

mistake_2Oh yeh, the whole DeAnna Pappas thing was anti-climactic as I suspected. She showed up, told Jason she made a mistake and wanted another chance with Jason. Jason said “thanks for this opportunity to tell you that I am in love with two other women.” Then DeAnna left with her parting advice to Jason “be smart.” He must have blocked that last comment.

So here is the time line. Around Thanksgiving Jason proposes to Melissa and they have 6 weeks of clandestine dates. Six weeks after the proposal was last night’s After the Final Rose show when Jason dumps Melissa and asks Molly out to coffee. Apparently another 6 weeks has transpired since THAT show last night to thering_stare present. Now, tonight After the Final Rose Part 2 will be on TV.

I wonder what we will hear tonight. Will TV viewers get any more answers? From what I saw with Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Jason last night I highly doubt we will ever get any more answers than “I just changed my mind–you can’t make me marry someone I’m not in love with.” Is THAT why he was staring at the engagement ring for 10 minutes?


Here are the final results from the poll that many of you voted on. Clearly most of the voters thought Jason was going to pick Melissa. And they were right… for like two seconds!jason_loser


Ah! “Moving on”–TV romance style!


New Poll…
