The Bachelor Winner is ... Melissa Rycroft!

by at . Comments

After what was an incredible 13th season and an emotional, two-hour season finale chock full of twists, turns and heartbreak, Jason Mesnick got down on one knee and proposed to Melissa Rycroft on The Bachelor Monday night.

It was an outcome many expected ever since a promo appeared to show Melissa's pinky ring. But it wasn't just ABC's sloppy editing job that gave the ending away - the chemistry between Melissa and Jason was palpable from the start.

This is not to suggest Melissa Rycroft had it easy tonight. She was grilled hard by Jason's parents and brothers and even more importantly, win over little Ty.

Runner-up Molly Malaney put up a heck of a fight, only to fall just short. She may be second guessing the re-use of her high school prom dress as we speak.

As for DeAnna Pappas' much-hyped return? Well, that was completely useless, staged and comical, but it at least ate up a good 10 minutes of air time.

In the end, absolutely no one could quite measure up to Melissa Rycroft's rare blend of beauty, love and charm. She and Jason Mesnick are engaged and happy ...

... or ARE they?

You may have read The Bachelor spoilers suggesting Melissa and Jason are headed for a shocking early breakup - with Molly taking her place by his side.

Is this for real? Would you be happy if so? And did Jason make the right choice? We'll find out on the "After the Final Rose" special airing ... right now!

Sound off on Melissa Rycroft and The Bachelor finale below!

If a man finds a good wife is a blessing. But what Jason did was unforgivable. If Jason had a wisdom he should think wisely before he proposed to Mellisa. As a divorced man & got hurt, I don't think that Jason is sincere to find his soul mate in life forever. It's like his enjoying the fame for sure. As you are one victim of divorced you should know better how it fells to get devastated.???... and yet you do that to others??? Now, I asked you Jason who gives you the right to hurt Mellisa?...you will sow what you reap becareful God is watching you.

Look at the end of the day Jason appeared to have chosen Molly - but his little chat with ex DeAnna seemed to have changed his mind and so he chose Melissa. AS IF

You could tell Melissa's connection with Ty was evident. Run Molly Run!!!! I can't believe a father would involve his son in this mess. The best word to describe Jason is FICKLE. Melissa might have been hurt but it's what is what is best for her. Jason is an emotional BOOB. I can't believe Molly feel for his line!

Jason, is a Bastard.Everyone knows this was a set-up. As for Molly, Coffee, you've got to be kidding me. Melissa, I wish i had a brother for you. Unfortunately, you made only one mistake, giving back the ring. I will never watch the Bachelor again.

From the time Melissa stepped out of the Limo, I could see how winey she is. Hiiiiii!!. Molly is more mature. And very beautiful. Jason said because of a contract, he had to break up with Milissa on camera, Jason had already let her know they weren't right for each other. I think Jason saw things after the fact, about Melissa that he didn't see before. Maybe about how jealous and immature she really is. Jason wasnn't "THE ONE" Melissa, move on Sweetie, even though it hurts.(I know because I've been hurt before,)who hasn't? Good luck Melissa and good Luck to Molly, Jason and Ty. May God Bless You! You did the right thing Jason, even though it hurt you and Mellisa.

I THINK THAT JASON IS STUPID GUY BECAUSE TOO LATE FOR RIGHT LADY FOR HIM. I LIKE MELISSA BETTER THAN MOLLY BECAUSE TY LOVES MELISSA NOT MOLLY. I DON'T THINK THAT MOLLY WON'T WATCH TY BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO SPEND WITH HER WORK. YOU NEVER KNOW THAT SHE THINK THAT SHE IS SWEET LADY. MELISSA IS RIGHT FOR HIM AND THAT IS AWFUL THAT MELISSA FEEL HURT BY HERSELF BECAUSE TOO LATE FOR ENGAGEMENT RING THAT WHY JASON IS BAD LUCK. I THINK THAT MOLLY IS TOO MUCH TO PUSH HIM AWAY FROM MELISSA OR OTHER THE LADIES. SHE MIGHT BE JEALOUSE. SO HE SHOULD GO TO DEANN BECAUSE JASON IS STILL FEEL FOR HER LOVE. MESS UP WITH THE SHOW AND LOOK AWFUL WITH THE SHOW. SHOULD STAY WITH MELISSA NOT MOLLY.

Melissa, Gurl keep your chin up! You are and were the best choice! Jason Mesinck is an AS*HOLE!!!! Molly is a skank! You saw how she seduced him on their last date and you kept it real by being the classy girl you are! And HOW DARE ABC make us so freakin happy and crying at the end of the bachelor and in the next 5 minutes PISS us off! Couldnt they have waited at least one night and let us go to bed with the joy that Melissa felt????? That A--Hole claims to be an honest and good guy and Dad and what did he do, the same thing DeAnna did to him. I dont care about your feelings Mesnick,

I did not watch the entire show when Jason and DeAnna were on. The only episode I saw was the After the Final Rose.. Jason was so broken up. I actually felt sorry for him. Not anymore. What a jerk, bastard, crep...etc?! No wonder he is divorced. I hope he doesnt have custody of his son. His family was worried about him getting hurt. They should have been warning those girls to run quickly away from Jason. That little boy deserves to be brought up with MORALS and VALUES. Jasons is a selfish bastard and Molly is a desperate idiot with a lack of self-worth for taking him back after he dumped her. Ever heard the term "sloppy seconds". They deserve each other. Melissa even though it may not seem like it right now this idiot(Jason) did you a favor. You can do so much better.

Jason lied...to himself, to the girls, to everyone. He was NOT in love with 2 girls...he was only in love with Molly, and his reaction at her departure proves it. A man doesn't fall apart like that over a woman he's gonna dump; he might be kind of relieved, as he was after he said goodbye to Melissa. But those tears, that was for a woman he loved, and how big of an idiot does he have to be that he couldn't figure that out???

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
