Are Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick Really Together?

by at . Comments

The Internets are buzzing over The Bachelor spoilers from a blogger who seems to be at least somewhat in the know, and who adamantly claims the ABC reality hit's producers rigged this entire season - right from the beginning.

In this Bachelor spoiler bombshell is to be believed, single dad Jason Mesnick picks Melissa Rycroft on the March 2 finale, but after the proposal to the former NFL cheerleader, he secretly continues to date runner-up Molly Malaney.

The "shocking" details will supposedly be revealed at the "After the Final Rose" special airing immediately after the season finale, with a second "After The Final Rose, Part 2" special now on tap to air the next night, March 3.

An ABC rep would not confirm these rumors, except to say that the finale has been taped, and that both "After The Rose" specials are still in production.

But The Bachelor host Chris Harrison said at the end of last Monday's episode that the developments were so shocking, producers kept the cameras rolling.

So does Molly Malaney really end up with Jason Mesnick, or is this prescient blogger just making stuff up to get hits on his site (it's working if so)?

For whatever it's worth, a writer from her hometown Grand Rapids Press says The Bachelor conspiracy theory posited by "Reality Steve" makes sense in part.

"I think this might actually have something to it, because this theory, that Jason chooses Melissa, only to change his mind and later choose Molly, actually lines up with what my sources have been saying," opines Lorilee Craker.

"Three sources who know [Molly Malaney] and have stayed in touch with her since the show started have said she probably doesn't win, from what they can gather, but that she has told them all the experience was 'life changing.'"

"I also think the fact that there is a second 'After the Rose' special is odd, and also seems to give a more weight to this theory. I've also heard that Molly has been making trips to L.A. 'for work,' which would corroborate this as well."

Yet there's one part of The Bachelor conspiracy theory she isn't buying.

"What I don't think is true, though, is that [Jason Mesnick] would pick Melissa or anyone because the show told him to. He may be a kissing fool, but he's not an ice cold lying dog. At least, he doesn't seem like one to me."

Therein lies perhaps the most intriguing element of this.

If this Bachelor spoiler turned out to be true, the biggest twist - and most controversial facet - would be that it was all planned by the ABC powers that be.

Possibly from a very early stage, even.

That means both ABC and Jason Mesnick agreed to make Melissa Rycroft suffer a huge amount of shock, heartbreak and embarrassment in front of America.

Hey, it makes for great TV, and you can only feel so sorry for anyone who voluntarily appears on a show like The Bachelor. At the same time, pulling a stunt like that for ratings would certainly dent Jason's good-guy image, wouldn't it?

What would Ty say?!

Hottest Bachelor Ever

If he really did participate in an elaborate ratings ruse at the expense of Melissa Rycroft, Mr. Nice Guy Jason Mesnick may lose at least part of his huge fan base.


JASON MESNICK IS A BASTARD..... Molly and him deserve each other because they are both ugly people with no considerations for anyone else but themselves.


I don't think any woman should trust Jason now, he is a 'PLAYER' Men like him make me sick and I so hope he reads all these comments. He decided to put his life in the public eye and will just have to get used to all the negativity about himself, Jason, you made your bed, now lie in it. Anyway you aren't attractive and look like George Bush, another reason women shouldn't trust you!


Well, we all know now what that dumb BASTARD did, and somebody should kick his ass!!! Molly is a poor excuse for a woman, taking Melissa's sloppy seconds. Has she no pride? He is not that great that I would allow myself to be dumped, just to have him come back with his line of crap and just so readily jump into his arms, she is as disgusting as he is. And not that it matters, but, yes, she is ugly, but I think he feels safer with her because he knows he's no prize, and, he wouldn't have to worry about too many men wanting her. At about 35-40 she is going to be a real looker... NOT!!! You pick in life what you feel you deserve, he obviously knew he did not deserve Melissa. Molly was more his league, guys like to ogle the pretty ones but are usually too afraid of the competition to actually marry them, the more plain girls are safer in their minds, Molly's just safe. He wanted his wild card, and, she got her joker, they make a perfect pair... Of losers


you all obviously like the show if your taking time to blog about it...I like molly i think she is beautiful and melissa had a huge over-bite and was to winey not to mention secretive not even her good friends knew anything about her parents...I will always watch this show, people strive for drama especially when its not their own!!!And whats up with all this talk about him not being a good parent, how does anyone know that you saw him on a show which they cut out half of what was actually taped so seriously if you dont like drama watch the news because half of the shit on tv is drama!!!


I could see how he was so terrribly upset when he let Molly go. He was deeply in love with Molly. I loved to see him with Melissa. They looked good together, however in the end I felt she was alittle imature. Molly coped with his reaction well on tv and I can understand Jason tried, truely tried with Melissa, and he did say he gave it his best. Live tv and cameras are definately different than day to day. I dont believe he is an actor and feel he really did show his heart on his sleeve. Best of luck to Jason and Molly.. Iwish you much love and happiness.. Melissa I hope we see you again on this show, you are a wonderful sweet woman....


I agree with fedupwithABC.....Let's show them that no matter if this is a joke or serious it doesn't belong on TV....What a network will do for money...Why do shows start off with a good idea then after so many seasons we have to see garbage.
Let's not watch tomorrow night and maybe this show will go away....I was loyaled to watching but no more, I'm done.
So tomorrow night enjoy without me and hopefully many others. I'm not helping ABC make top ratings for two nights in a row not after this sick prank..
Jason you are over 32, grow up! Was it really worth it? You talk about your son, what example are you really showing to him. How to be a player a selfish uncaring person or how to make money with no morals? That's what you showed us tonight...Sad...For us and your son!


I sooooooo agree with you "disgusted"!!! You said it best shame on all of them! And Melissa if you read any of this DO NO DO THE BACHELORETTE!!!!! None of this should have been allowed to happen on TV! But God sees everything and what goes around comes around!! ABC, Jason and Molly will all get theirs!!! I too am lost as a viewer. Im repulsed by the entire situation!


Jason is complete scum!! What he did to Melissa is disgusting and the fact the Molly has taken him back is just as disgusting if not worse! And she is a complete MORON for not realizing he is just going to do the same to her!!! HELLOOOOOO!!! Divorced, then does what he did to Melissa!!! I really liked him all thru the show until the last episode now when I see him cry i just wanna throw up! The man doesn't have an ounce of sincerity in his body! I should have known better when he told Gillian he didn't want to marry his best friend!! Wow did she dodge a bullet by being 3rd! I feel so bad for Melissa and she is waayyyyyyyy too good for him! I LOVE YOU MELISSA!!!!!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to you!


Molly is just plain FUGLY.


Don't be daft. Do you really think Jason would go along with the producers of the show dreaming up that he would choose the one he doesn't want, spend 6 weeks with her, and risk losing the one he really loves. He would have to be some really good actor to pretend to be in love and wanting to marry the wrong girl. He chose the safe girl, the one who was extra, extra sweet and professed to love him, giving up the girl he was passionately in love with and unsure about the passion that she might have or not have for him. It was there, but Melissa blurted it out and threw the passion at him. One does not have to blurt out and throw passion at another to show love. I think that is where Jason was confused and might have thought Melissa loved him more. Good thing he realized his mistake early. His heart had always been with Molly and just took a little longer for him to figure out than he realized. I think Jason and Molly make a great couple.
