Season 13 of “The Bachelor” brings back Jason Mesnick as the bachelor, after he was dumped by DeAnna Pappas for professional snowboarder Jesse Csincsak on the season finale of “The Bachelorette 4.” Pappas and Csincsak have since split but Mesmick says he has found love and is engaged to the winner of “The Bachelor 13.” Mesnick told People Magazine that an outpouring of support from fans and family helped convince him to try to find love in front of the cameras again.
Jason, a 31-year-old account executive in estate and legacy planning and a father to 3-year-old Ty, became a fan favorite on “The Bachelorette.” His story of a single father raising a son on his own in Seattle moved fans who emailed him messages of support after he was left heartbroken by DeAnna. Jason became the bachelor in hopes of finding a woman with a curiousity about the world and a passion for life. According to what he is saying now, he did found her.
“The Bachelor 13” brings together 25 women vying for a chance to date and possibly marry Jason. For the first time in Bachelor history four of the women- Megan, Stacia, Stephanie and Treasure- are all single mothers hoping that Jason and Ty will complete their families. The group of bachelorettes also includes, Raquel, a 27-year-old medical student from Brazil, Sharon, a 32-year-old teacher from Batavia, NY, Renee, a 36-year-old jewelry designer from Los Angeles, CA, Molly, a 24-year-old department store buyer from Grand Rapids, MI, and Nikki, a 29-year-old administrative assistant from Blue Island, IL.
These women have come from around the country to compete in weekly competitions and fight for a chance at love with this latest bachelor. Each week, Jason will give the women he felt the biggest connection with a rose and ask them to stay. The woman who does not receive a rose at the end of the week will be asked to leave, missing her opportunity to create a life with Jason. Of course, this season is sure to provide a dose of drama and tension among the ladies as they live together and compete for Jason. But what would “The Bachelor” be with out a catfight or two?
“The Bachelor” premieres January 5th at 8 p.m. on ABC.
I would really like to see Jason end up with Jillian. She is mature, sexy and knows what she wants in life and in a partner. I don’t dislike Melissa but she is just too young to know what she wants.
I certainly think Molly is completely wrong for Jason. She is a prep who thinks she is just so cute and will do whatever daddy and mommy wants. I am just affraid she will think Jason’s son shouldnt come before her because she loves to be center of attention and her parents taught her she is the most important person in the world. Jason really needs to think hard before choosing her.
As for DeAnna, what a joke! She is all about the glamour. Jason really needs to consider his son before considering her. If she would walk off and leave Jesse once the fantasy mansion, fantasy dates were gone, would she really think sitting up nights with a sick 3 year old wiping snot and diarea is the romantic fantasy she thinks she deserves?
Just be careful Jason and think of your baby first. You are a wonderful person and you deserve the best, DeAnna is not the best. You are indeed to good for her. Good luck to you and whomever you choose, and remember, she is the lucky one. Be well –
