First DeAnna Pappas gets a second chance, now Jason Mesnick will get his too by becoming the new Bachelor, with a twist!
In the shocking season finale of the Bachelorette, DeAnna rejected Jason to the surprise of female viewers everywhere.
After the show, we all thought that Jason would not remain single for long as his fellow competitors Jeremy Anderson and Graham Bunn found love, but one month ago, Mesnick said in a press conference call, “I am in a place where I could start dating again, but to be honest, I don’t even know how right now. My focus is on getting back to work and just being a dad.”
Now it seems, his focus has changed and he will search for that special someone…again, not only be his life partner, but the father of his son when the 13th season of the reality show returns in january.
ABC said Wednesday that the 32-year-old single father is looking for a woman who “has a real curiosity about the world, who loves life and can find passion in life’s smallest moments.” The network is casting for eligible women to vie for Mesnick’s attention.
The questions that I am pondering are, willJason bring along his son to help search for a wife and mother and will the women who are cast on the show this season have children of their own?
Jasonjust spent four to six months away from his child while on the Bachelorette and now he will spend that same amount of time away again. He is a single dad for heaven’s sake! If a single mother did the same thing, would she not be accused of abandoning her child?
None the less, Jason has agreed to do the show which should make for an interesting season!
