ABC’s The Bachelor is down to two women officially vying for the hand of single dad Jason Mesnick. One of them is Molly Malaney, a department store buyer and the other finalist is former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Rycroft. Earlier, we reported a spoiler that Jason Mesnick chooses Melissa Rycroft, based on a You Tube video that showed Jason Mesnick proposing to a woman with a pinky ring on her right hand. Melissa Rycroftwas the only contestant that wore one, so we were pretty sure that this theory was correct. Now new information is coming in to the contrary and we wanted to update you on the latest scoop.
It is currently circulating on the internet that The BachelorJason Mesnickdid choose Melissa Rycroftintially to be his bride, but right now they are no longer together. Apparently at some point between his proposal to Melissa Rycroft in New Zealand and the taping of the first, After the Final Rose ceremony (yes there will be two of them) Jason Mesnick began dating Molly Malaney.
During the first After the Final RoseshowJason will apparently end his engagement with Melissa Rycroft, and announce his relationship with Molly Malaney.
The reason the second After the Final Rose special, which will air the next evening on March 3, was added, was to tell us Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney’s story. No one is currently reporting whether there is a marriage proposal involved, but according to internet reports, the special will update us on their relationship.
The wild card of the finale is the return of DeAnna Pappas from last year’s Bachelorette. She turned down JasonMesnick in that show and reportedly has changed her mind. There are no spoilers circulatingthat he chooses her to be his mate though, so I guess her shot at fame is finally over. Thank goodness he throws her to the curb where she belongs!
