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.


Well, ABC lost me as a fan, this whole after the Rose crap has me realizing just how low the network will go to get ratings. and Jason is so superficial and can turn on the tears like a water spigot, Molly will end up looking like a fool, and I think Melissa already knew she was going to be dumped in front of millions of watchers. Hum, could she be the next Bachelorette? Well, count me out, this last show lost me as a viewer.


This is crap!!! Why did he do that to melissa?? I think molly is a big fonny, I think the real her is going to get tired of being second in his life because his child will come first!! She looks really high maintance and is going to want all his attention and he will regreat what he did!! I think him an deanna deserve each other after all this!! What a bunch of crap!!!


If it were me, I would not have involved my young child. He must already be very confused about all the the "women" in his Dad's life!!


wow! Melissa's parents are looking smarter and smarter every day, no? Molly should run, not walk, for the hills; this guy is NUTS; has anyone interviewed his ex? They have only been divorced a year, around the time, I guess, when the kid was 2/3 yet he talks about it being him and Ty "alone forever" .... ah, hello, girls? the "it's me, not you" line is sounding AWFULLY convincing right about now!


Here is the reality's not reality on TV!!!! In the "real life" Jason and Melissa just didn't click....and he realized it, and went with his HEART, and was honest with her and is now honest with himself, AND with his feelings for Molly. I always thought Molly was the right one for him, from what I could "see" on TV!!! She genuinely loves him, and I wish the best for the two of them. Everyone deserves to find someone they love, that loves them back!! With best wishes for Molly and Jason!


um lets just say i just finished watching the bachelor and the after rose show and my mouth was hanging open... the whole time. honestly who does that to a girl. on television and then turns around and confesses his love for molly. Melisa and him have been together for what? like 4 months and he just ends it and moves on just like that?! uhh this makes me so mad. i uesed to think of him as such a sweet and hot guy dont get me wrong but now what i see him as is basically and lunitict and a heart breaker. melisa was completly right to call him a bastard. i cant say anything but that melisa was perfect and he just couldnt handle it, hes a wussy.


To Paige: evry other white mail???? Are you serious? Mail?


jason is like evry other white mail they want their cake and eat it too... molly needs to spit on him and jason deserves to be alone...


I hate Jason for doing what he did to Melissa on international television. He is such a scumbag !!!! I wish him nothing but heartbreak and heartbreak ten fold on his precious son Ty because that may hurt him as much as Melissa was hurt. Jerk !!!
Go ahead Molly, have the leftovers.


I totally agree with hired this realty steve once again throw us off....I think it is Melissa, who will ultimately be the one he is engaged to. I don't think abc is in it to make us hate molly or jason, they are in it for watch and see it will be Melissa
