Face-Off: Did DeAnna Pappas Make the Right Decision?

by at . Comments

Jesse Csincsak. Jason Mesnick. The stunning Bachelorette finale last night, in which Jesse was chosen over Jason by the lovely DeAnna Pappas, has sparked massive reader responses - and is the subject of this afternoon's Face-Off ...


YES by mischalova

Kids can be awfully cute (see Rossdale, Kingston). But they can also create enormous amounts of pressure, causing certain third basemen to stray from marriage and have sex with exotic dancers named Candice Houlihan.

This is relevant to Deanna Pappas' decision to choose Jesse Csincsak over Jason Mesnick because the latter Bachelorette contender has a child. While this may endear him to many readers, it was an obvious turn-off to Deanna.

And isn't it her right to make that decision for herself, people?

Following her heart-wrenching, public rejection by Brad Womack, Deanna was still willing to put herself out there, still willing to open herself up to America in her quest for a soul mate. That takes guts.

Know what else takes guts? Earning a living as a professional snowboarder, the field chosen by Jesse Csincsak. It's an industry ripe with potential injury, yet not with a guaranteed monthly paycheck.

Sounds a lot like reality television star, doesn't it?

So instead of questioning Deanna Pappas' selection of Jesse, I'm here to praise it. Let's just hope one can avoid pain on the slopes of Colorado, while the other can avoid further pain in her heart.

NO by Free Britney

This celebrity gossip blogger's heart ached for Jason Mesnick last night.

After a full season of saying she wanted to settle down with a mature man with strong family values, with the goal of having children, DeAnna Pappas pulled a 180 at the last second and rejected the perfect candidate.

In his place, D got engaged to an awkward snowboarder.

Despite no discernible chemistry with Jesse Csincask, DeAnna Pappas let the right choice go in Jason Mesnick - a classy, sincere businessman from Seattle who - as we saw - has the right priorities and is great with kids.

The stark contrast in maturity was evident when the guys picked out rings for DeAnna (nice product placement BTW, Bachelorette). Jason was confident and collected. Jesse was about to puke at the prospect of "forever."

This is the guy she's supposedly marrying?

In the end, perhaps DeAnna Pappas just got cold feet. Maybe she was more in love with newfound fame and freedom than she is with Jesse, and couldn't bear the thought of settling down with the sure bet. At least not yet.

Collateral damage: A nice guy finishing last yet again.

Did DeAnna Pappas make the right move getting engaged to Jesse Csincsak (left) on The Bachelorette - or was Jason Mesnick the better option?


Isn't Deanna the only one who can decide who is right for her and who she loves. How can anyone else decide that. At first I thought Graham might win her heart but they had such a communication problem & it takes more than looks to make a lasting relationship.What amazes me the most is people say they want these bachelorettes, etc to find love, but only if they can decide who that person is. Love is not about who is the best looking or makes the most money. Jason best expressed it when he said that when he saw the way she looked at Jesse and wished she had looked at him like that. I don't see how anyone could have watched the rose ceremony & ATRC and doubted that she had not made the right choice. I saw more realness between these two than any other bachelor/bachelorette couple. We each have to find that person who we feel is right for us. I wish them much happiness


Yes. All about money isn't? A steady paycheck, a "well regarded" career, etc.. If someone doesn't fit that mold, they're not good enough right? There's nothing wrong with being a pro snowboarder. It's a wonderful career which takes dedication, passion and hard work. As much if not more than any other job. Difference is, you get paid less. I'm a ski instructor and I do get judged unfairly because of it. Jesse has passion and he didn't seem to only have it for the sport, but also for Deeana. No one can say she made the wrong choice. She's the one who spent time with him, who got to really know him and get passed the stereotype of the ski bum. I wish them happiness.


Umm, hello? Jeremy - can anyone else say Serial Killer in the Making?


NOOOO!!! Jeremy should be the next Bachelor! I think she can pick who she wants...everyone has their own heart....but put that Hottie Jeremy back on for all eyes to see. I thought Deanna was a little rude on the first sit down two weeks ago to Graham and Jeremy, but redeemed herself last night when confronted by Jason


DeAnna ABSOLUTELY made the wrong decision, but her loss is someone else's game. Personally, I think Jason was too good for DeDe. ABC should definitely make him the next Bachelor!


I think Jason Mesnick should be the next bachelor!!! I think that there are plenty of women who would love to have a guy like Jason!!!


Not at all! Jesse told her that he had no idea what his future plans were for employment, why would she want to be with someone like that? I would never have given this guy the time of day and if my daughter ever thought about marrying a guy like him I would disown her.


What the heck is she thinking???!!! Jesse is cute, but if she wants to settle down, she picks a guy without a steady paycheck??? I think she's just got cold feet and decided to pick the "fun" guy. I predict the curse of the bachelorette lives on!!! I don't think they're going to last. (sorry De Anna)! By the way, Jason honey, call me!!! I don't mind being treated like a queen!




Heck NO!! Definitely was rooting for Jason!

DeAnna Pappas Quotes

DeAnna Pappas [on Trista Rehn]: She’s like the poster child for The Bachelorette. She gave me some pretty good advice: Follow my heart and be true to myself. I can only hope to have a successful relationship like she has.

I’m thankful that he didn’t propose to me. Everything happens for a reason and I’m where I am today because of all of that and I’m very happy for that.
