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!

Jason the jerk. I really liked Jillian and she seems to be a classy lady. I would have liked to see them together. However, Jason couldn't "see beyond" her talk of being married to her "best friend." Now that's exactly how he's referring to Molly...best friend. With friends like that....
Peace

While what Jason did was wrong Carol you really need to go back and reread things about Jason. He didn't give up on his marriage HIS exwife did. She left!!

Mellisa should get her on season. She is cute so women like her and me also like her. Few came be both: like Julia Roberts. Only if you can make fart sounds, then she could be perfect.

I am GLAD he picked Molly, she was the better girl for him...Did anyone know that Melissa is a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader??? Maybe that is not what he wanted for his 3 year old son....and she was NOT honest with him, she NEVER told him she was a Professional Cheerleader who traveled around the US to cheer for a bunch of football players... (Go Cowboys!) So really she didn't loose out on anything and Jason and Molly can live happily ever after...If anything poor Molly for being okay with being second best!!!!

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.

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.
