Bachelor Finale- I hate Jason Mesnick


Well all my questions were answered last night. Is Jason a jerk? Yes! He's an idiot too, with no class. Should I go on? Why not!

The first part of the show went on exactly as it always has with parent meetings, last dates, I love you's and kissy face. I thought Molly was the more genuine one, setting up massages and cooking dinner, making him the cute story book...wait...am I falling for Molly not Melissa? A little! Melissa was way better with Tai but I felt like Molly was pretty good too. It just seemed like Melissa was ready to be a mom and hang and Molly was more career and family. I thought Molly seemed more mature and secure. I felt like he was liking Melissa more because of Tai.

Deanna of course, messed everything up. Not because she wanted him back but because she said she picked the wild card and it didn't work out. Okay, Jason obviously took that all in and freaked. (Hello the same thing happened on Top Chef where Carla let another chef take over her menu and she lost...ah the reality TV...)

First of all Jesse was a class A idiot snowboarder who had no direction. Molly (the supposed wild card here), is a career minded golfer who likes to have fun! Big difference!!!! I think that's why Jason made the safe choice and then BAWLED when Molly left. Molly was smart though, playing the Jedi mind trick on him of "you're making a big mistake". You could tell her was unsure and he wanted her to tell him why and what to do!

So then he proposed to Melissa who I thought wore an ugly dress and had a weird reaction to his proposal. They all jumped in the pool, Tai too, and were going to be a family. I knew it wasn't going to happen so I couldn't be excited.

Now comes the Jason jerk part.

He shows up to the final rose show, says he made a mistake, it's not working out, and gives the impression Melissa already knows. Melissa comes out, looking AMAZING! and clearly did not know he was going to break up with her. I was proud of her except when she talked about herself in the third person. She made awesome points of him not working on the relationship and having doubts. He picked her? WHY? Why didn't he let her go and pick Molly? He really had no answers and clearly wanted to bring up Molly which I think was the rudest. He couldn't let Melissa have her moment, he made it about Molly. She was pissed, called him a bastard, (loved that)and gave the ring back with a don't call me, leave me alone exit, she left. Good girl.

Okay, he changed his mind, made a mistake, but he involved his kid, a girl who had her heart broken a million times and as Melissa said, he should know better. If he really couldn't decide he should have asked for more time, more space, another date with each or something.

When Molly comes out she is of course adorable, except when she said she never had her heart broken (ahhh Molly the heart breaker!), and wants answers. Jason comes out and she asks the questions. How come you had no reason for not choosing me? When did you know? When Jason tells her he broke up with Melissa and wants to have coffee I wanted to gag. Um what? Molly was stunned, but she should have kicked him in the balls and walked off. Instead she was so glad to be right she couldn't stop smiling. She even kissed him a hundred times. Hello? You really want to be with this type of person? Someone who could do this?

Jason then makes sure I will never watch the Bachelor ever again saying the most important thing is to follow your heart (no matter who you hurt along the way), and it's not the most classy move (ya think?), but he has to follow his heart. My heart says he's a jerk. I am watching the final rose sequel tonight, but then I am DONE!

Okay, what did you think of this nightmare? The spoilers were right!!!

I wrote my thoughts on my blog already, but I basically agree with everything you wrote.

I felt so sorry for Melissa and I think this whole thing could have been handled better by Jason. It's not a crime to change your mind, but hello, don't propose so fast after being in fantasy land created by ABC for weeks! Have a real relationship and see where it goes first! I think he's showing his son a very bad example of how to break up with women...

Pink in a sea of blue said...

It was crazy. However, I thought Melissa was the "wild" card and Molly was "safe" and he ignored Deanna and went for the wild card. It didn't seem like Melissa was ready to move on from life in TX- to me. ALSO, he handled Molly so poorly on the "couch". He should have said he was SORRY for hurting her and for what she's been going through these weeks and hopes he can make it up to her, etc....he didn't say any of that! What a loser. I said all along I didn't like this bachelor and now Ty is probably even more confused!!

I had not been watching the show at all, but I had heard about the spoilers and I wanted to see how it all played out. I think it was all a set up from the beginning. I feel so bad for Melissa who was hurt just for the sake of ratings!

Jillian, Inc said...

As I posted on my blog, Jason is a big flake....not to mention wimpy and a big loser. Could he have possibly cried any more? What a jerk. I hope Molly disses him and gets on with her life with a real man.

Clare said...

I had read the spoilers, but I thought it was even worse than the spoilers. The way he did that to Melissa, she really handled herself, but I still couldn't believe it! Molly is just an idiot, and maybe Jason was just the weirdo to begin with. I think we all liked him because he was a dad, etc, but I think he might be the worst bachelor they have ever had!!

Bama Girl in AZ said...

I was just shocked. I knew it seemed too good to be true and then with the private ceremony I was thinking for sure something is going to change but I was still shocked!

Brie said...

I agree with you 100% - except I liked Melissa's dress :) I thought it was pretty, not something I'd choose for me but it looked great on her. Jason is a boob to the third power. The ring was beautiful and I would not have wanted to give it back

Houses, Couches and Babies said...

On Jimmy Kimmel last night he said that he was contractually obligated to have the break up conversation with Melissa on TV. He said they had already broken up which is why she came out so pissed because she knew exactly what was happening and couldn't stop it because she was "contractually obligated." And did you happen to pause and read the letter Molly received from the show that she put in the book. It was such a fantasy letter talking of a luxurious mansion incredible fantasy dates...what lame producers. But if there is one thing to say about the people and this show...it's not like this is the first time it has aired. They have all seen the show and know exactly what goes on...to expect anything less than a break up is silly! Oh yeah, I think he is a douche bag!

Mrs.Preppy said...

I did not watch this season, but had to Tivo the episodes from last night. Jason is a complete jerk and screwed Melissa over - big time. And I cannot believe that Molly was that happy to be someone's 2nd choice. Ugh.

Surf Girl said...

All I can say is what a way to set an example for your son, by being a jerk in front of millions of people. I don't care if he was contractually obligated, he was still classless for hurting Melissa like that. I hope Molly sees him for what he really is before he changes his mind again.
Loser!

Ol' Sport said...

Jason is a dip-shit...I want my money and my time back! He reminded me of George Bush when the girl he dumped called him on his bullshit..."I never wanted to hurt you..." what a douchewah!

The Mr.

ursula said...

um, but we do know that the "ending" was planned, right? Jason had planned on picking Molly, but was informed that it would be boring tv...so they were all in on the switcheroo.....and I actually don't think that Jason is that good of an actor......the crying bit is a little over the top - note to Jason: don't try the BIG emotions....leave that to the likes of Tom Hanks.....

I am angry said...

I cannot stand Jason Mesnick - he is a total jerk and I wish that Melissa would have slapped him across the face - hard. He completely deserved it. As for Molly - Get a clue and run really fast. Jason is an weak, lowly, slime of being and his place on earth is a waste of space.

Maria said...

I didnt see the whole season but I saw one episode of it and the finale. Seriously, Jason is a jackass for lack of a better word (though I do blame Deanna alot for it). I didn't like the ring he picked either - the first one was better. And Molly's purple dress was nicer. And I agree with Melissa - the problem with Bachelor and Bachelorette is that even though they market it as a reality, the whole process of meeting and picking someone is a fantasy at the end of the day! That's why only one of the relationships have survived (and if I remember, Trista didn't propose and they took it to a 'relationship' level for a decent amount of time after the vacuum of the show).

pinkpolkadotaa said...

It was CRAZY! I really liked Jason, and now I think he's the biggest idiot! There was a point where it seemed to me it was all so scripted when they brought Holly out and she was all "my feelings have never changed" blah blah. But who knows.

Dionne said...

I totally agree with everything that has been said. I think Jason is a jacka@@ and I cannot believe that he agreed to do this. ABC is wrong for playing with real emotions and feelings. I feel so bad for Melissa, I couldn't stop thinking about how hurt and embarrassed she must feel. it is just terrible. He is a real jerk and I cannot believe that Molly thought it was acceptable to be second-whatever!! I would've told him where he could go. He is a bastard!!

nanny said...

You summed it up perfectly. I loved Jason and was so happy for him to be the bachelor,,,and he turned out to be a number 1 Jerk!
Molly should have told him to drop dead and walked off. And what about him wanting to have coffee or go out and talk::::how many hundreds of miles apart do they live,,really. Engagement couldn't work but dating and going for coffee will HA HA
I think we all know why he is divorced,,,probably thought he loved his wife then decided against it!

Anonymous said...

Jason is a jerk. I think his ex-wife needs to sue for full custody of little Tai. No child should be a pawn in a parent's sick dating game. I will never watch the Batchelor again. The whole thing is a nightmare.

Mrs. K said...

Do I have something to tell YOU!! I 'found' out - of course NOT CONFIRMED...through someone who claims to KNOW Melissa that ABC paid them an extra 5 figures to show up last night- they did all know what was going to happen. And part of the reason Jason couldn't stop thinking about Molly was...and don't kill the messenger....

I guess they did the bedroom samba on their date night and somehow she may have made a comment that she could be preggers. Could that be the twist they are talking about tonight?

Petunia said...

Wow! I missed quite the drama!!! It sounded crazy!

Molly Laufman said...

you are SO right! jason is an ass... he has ruined the show for me and tons others too. he is at fault for being a terrible person but molly is just an IDIOT for going for that. i hope they don't work out. he deserves no one.

Cindy said...

Well, finally someone explains the whole thing to me! I don't watch, but even I have been aware that something very big happened. Now I'm in the know. ;)

Solar Powered said...

I'm so done with it all. I wouldn't doubt for a second that ABC would stoop to that. Love your blog and loved the post about Gwen...so sweet.

Tickled Pink And Green said...

I was going to post what happened on Jimmy Kimmel last night, but someone beat me to it. I really don't know what to think about ABC's role in all of it.

I'm getting ready to watch my tivo'd episode of the 2nd ATR show!

And I absolutely LOVED the dress Melissa wore when he proposed!! Molly's? Not so much.

:)

Bee and Rose said...

I agree with everything you wrote! What a complete jerk! I cannot believe he put his son through all of that. Just ridiculous!

Elizabeth said...

Amen, sister, Amen! :)

WPMomOf2 (jen) said...

I did not watch this season but I know he has caused a huge uproar!

sle said...

I liked both girls but at the after the rose ....if Molly had no clue what was going on and out of the blue Jason says I want to be with you why in the H*** was she so all over him...hmmmmm....I think its pretty obvious she already knew what was coming.

coffee said...

the Bachelor finale wasn't really that ground-breaking -- the guy just acted like a tool, the same as he did from the beginning.
