'Bachelorette' reject gets second chance at the final rose!

Bachelor_lFile this under things we didn’t see coming a mile away: ABC just announced that Jason Mesnick, who you might recall got down on bended knee during the last season’s Bachelorette finale, but didn’t get the girl, is the new Bachelor!

His season won’t air until January 2009, so we’re all going to have to wait till then to see which lucky woman will win his — and his son Ty’s (remember him?) — heart. God knows there have been plenty out there trying since Deanna passed on him for Jesse.

Personally, I think it might have been fun to see how Jeremy would’ve handled a slew of women coming at him from every which way — maybe he’d learn to stop being so robotic with his emotions. Still, I’m OK with Jason as the elected bachelor. At least he has some personality!

    Thoughts? Comments? Yeah, okay. I’ve got some. I think everyone that has ever appeared on any season of The Bachelor/Bachelorette needs to taken into the street and shot – right on TV for all of America to see. That way these shallow, souless, attention-hungry losers in our country will wake up and think twice about participating in something so stupid.

    This show is STILL on?

    whoo-hoo!! great news. He is the ONLY reason I watched the Bachelorette. Now its his turn

  • JS

    I feel sorry for his son who’ll at the very least will be separated from his only parent again. Of course, the show will probably trot him out for display at every opportunity. Poor thing!

  • Ceballos

    So “The Bachelor” is another pseudo generic-looking white dude with dark hair. In a related story, the sky is blue.

    If Rob Lowe and Steve Carell could genetically have a son, he’d look like the guy above.

    I am totally happy about this. While it seemed like Deanna wasn’t ready for what he had to offer, I thought he was a truly genuine, stand-up guy. I am psyched to see him as happy as Deanna!

    Well deserved Jason! Jason was the most popular male contestant on a Bachelorette show ever and he totally deserves this!!! Ty and him need a stable mom to certify their family setting. I wish Jason all the best!

  • Maria

    Good for Jason! He’s a really nice guy and a great family man. I’m excited to see how he does on the show.

    with a kid involved I hope they let Jason pre-screen his future-suitors (or suitees?). :-)

  • Janeway

    I will definitely watch. I have met Jason and I know his family. He is a very sweet guy and a great father. I hope it works out for him this time.

  • Earthluver

    This will be a nice change. I hope they choose the women wisely and maybe a mom or 2 !!

  • Laura

    YAY JASON! I absolutely adored him and wish he’d gotten his happily ever after. Who knows, maybe this will work out for him :)

  • heather
