The Bachelor Spoilers: Blame Melissa Rycroft's Parents!

by at . Comments

Rumors that Jason Mesnick will choose Melissa Rycroft on next Monday's The Bachelor season finale only to dump her during the "After the Final Rose" special in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney have sparked controversy among fans.

This Bachelor spoiler bombshell, courtesy of a reality TV blogger claiming to be in the know, is now giving way to a slightly different iteration.

Rather that hatching this elaborate scheme with ABC from the beginning to create the most possible drama - a charge host Chris Harrison vehemently denies - the new theory is that Jason simply changed his mind and swapped girls on his own.

According to message boards on Reality Steve's blog - which first broke The Bachelor spoilers in question - a 67-year-old ex-ABC employee who knows people involved with the show claims Melissa's actions resulted in Jason's change of heart.

Melissa and Jason

Jason Mesnick's "hometown date" with Melissa raised red flags.

The insider says Jason Mesnick proposes to Melissa Rycroft in New Zealand and she accepts. That much has been rumored since the first promo of the year.

However, according to this Bachelor insider, the trouble begins when they return to the hotel and she calls her folks to break the engagement news.

Melissa's parents, of course, were conspicuously absent from the Bachelor hometown dates episode. Melissa said that they were private people not comfortable being on camera. Even stranger, none of Melissa's friends had ever met them either.

It seems in addition to their private tendencies that kept them off the show, her parents were also
not exactly keen on a match made on reality TV.

They were against Melissa Rycroft getting engaged, period.

Rumors has it that after this exchange, Melissa returned to Jason and told him she thinks they should slow things down and get to know each other better.

Supposedly, Jason Mesnick did not take this well and broke down crying. Could this be the scenario leading to the image of a devastated Jason in the promos?

Jason fell for both Melissa and Molly and made a choice based on who wanted to be with him more. Clearly, he was wrong and should have gone with Molly.

Then comes the infamous "After the Final Rose" special, where Jason describes how Melissa became more and more distant and gave off the impression that she never seriously wanted to see their relationship lead to marriage.

Feeling rejected, Jason calls up Molly and starts dating her.

Rumor has it all three key players in this Bachelor saga are on hand to hash out what went down - on a second "After the Final Rose" special filmed this week.

Ultimately, it is Melissa Rycroft who leaves the stage.

So, we now have two different versions of this giant Bachelor spoiler with the same basic outcome: Jason picks Melissa, but later ends up with Molly Malaney.

Does this spin on the season finale spoiler make things any better - and are you even buying it? Who do you think Jason should end up with?


On the first comment, Melissa had a breast reduction, not enhancement. I have to agree with everyone here. And coming from a guy, this sucks. What a waste of a show and finale! Less than 5 mins after an engagement we are met with a horrible reality, that Jason is a disturbed guy, that now wants to break up with Melissa on TV, and then ask back out Molly. Come on, what a joke. I hope ABC fails epic-ly in these economic times. And Jason, I hope you get fat, go bald, and some teeth fall out... So no longer will anyone even glance your way with a shimmer of hope and glee. When his semi-classic charming looks fade... he will be left with a truth of failed marriage, horrible dating record, a shame engagement, and a second best rejected girlfriend. And this is just another man, talking about how angry guys like him make me. Pathetic


Good God Molly, wake up. Jason is a jagoff. His nose is horrible and he runs like a girl. His parents and brothers treat him like a baby and his son is being mentally harmed with all this. Melissa, it's the best thing not to be engaged to the cry baby. You can do so much better.....


~~~People, people, people.... This IS REALITY TV, and in reality aren't ALL men jerks?~~~ FRANKLY NO we are not but thanks for the ASSumption and narrow mindedness


I couldn't help but feel awful for Jason After watching DeAnna dump him. He seemed so genuine and sincere. I was happy that he had a second chance on the Bachelor, but I am so gagged by the outcome. He just can't make up his mind. I think he'll change it again. I don't think I'll be watching again.


Jason is a cry baby NERD. Melissa, you are way too cool and hot for him and you should feel lucky you don't have to move to Seattle.


I feel if Melissa could not handle rejection then she should not have gone on the show. Molly showed so much grace, maturity and proved she would be a much better partner for Jason and Ty in the long run. Melissa obviously has issues if she's been dumped in every relationship. Let's face it Jason was smart, he probably got to sleep with both of them with this scenario. He had buyer's remorse! I wish Jason and Molly the best of luck. The chemistry is real and I feel they're meant for each other. The better girl won!


I liked Jason until last night. He seemed like he was trying to be pitiful or all poor me, willing himself to cry on Q .. He is just another wolf in sheeps clothing. Molly looked older than her "24" years she looks 34 and smug. They deserve each other. I can only imagine the Step-monster alone with the little boy TY. DFACS STAY CLOSE-BY Melissa seemed genuine, young,beautiful, kind and fun! I hope this catapults her to great fame and fortune!


Listen I have watched this crap on and off but have been on team Melissa the moment I saw her...What Jason did was BULL but after all it is TV... I don't understand what Deanna was doing there...for once a decent man was actually doing a good thing but he turned out to be a DOG like all the rest....Molly sorry hon you look like an intelligent woman WHAT THE HELL are u doing kissing him it is obvious to me and he kept repeating this moment that moment he seem to live in the moment so when your moment is up blame MOLLY dont be an ASS......Did anyone take time to find out why his wife left him.....But all of this was planned each party knew exactly what was going to happen.


People, people, people.... This IS REALITY TV, and in reality aren't ALL men jerks? It's funny that we take time from our own relationships to watch this crap on TV expecting to see a fantasy where men are good and treat women like princesses. Wake up! Yeah, it upset me too. Poor Melissa getting dumped for skanky Molly, but this IS real life!!! Save the sappy stuff for Disney, so that all young girls can grow up to be disappointed like the rest of us!


TEAM MELISSA! Jason is a jerk and a dumb a--. I hope that Melissa finds what she is looking for. I was really rooting for her. I cant believe Molly said yes to Jason what a dumpy.I lost a lot of respect for Jason last night. How can he do that. He deserves to be alone.
