Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney: Engaged!

by at . Comments

Last spring on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick sent Molly Malaney home on an emotional season finale, popping the question to Melissa Rycroft instead.

But on the show's "After the Final Rose" special, he famously had a change of heart, breaking up with Melissa and asking Molly for a second chance.

She was shocked, but giddily accepted.

That sums up Molly's reaction to Jason's most recent request as well. He asked her to marry him and she said yes. Jason and Molly are engaged!

According to People, Jason got down on one knee in New Zealand last week, the same nation where The Bachelor finale was filmed last winter.

Molly Malaney will soon be the newest Mrs. Jason Mesnick!

Since the controversial Bachelor ending, which resulted in serious backlash against Mesnick (Molly Malaney did nothing wrong, but Jason's national TV dispatching of Melissa was scrutinized), the two have kept a very low profile.

They've also been doing the distance thing, with her living in Milwaukee and him in Seattle with his son, Ty, from his first marriage to ex-wife Hillary.

But we suspect they'll be moving in together, likely in Seattle, quite soon, now that Jason Mesnick has officially asked for Molly's hand in marriage.

The couple just returned on vacation to the site of Jason’s ill-fated first choice so that “Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him,” says a source close to the lovebirds.

Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more photos:

This story is so confusing. It says they got engaged in New Zealand, but Queensland is in Australia. The bird that crashed the picnic looks like the Kiwi bird, the official bird of New Zealand, which is not so rare in that area.


I'm very happy for you Jason and Molly.congradulation and good lock.


Awesome! Molly was definitely the right choice and Jason was momentarily sidetracked. Realizing his mistake, he admitted "we're not right for each other" and chose his soulmate - Molly. I cannot imagine listening to squeaky Melissa long term "my peeeerants don't want publicness" . . . But no one's opinion counts except Jason's and Molly's. They are a gorgeous couple and I think this is great news.


Melissa is better off ..... Dancing with the Stars, Good Morning America. She got the last laugh!


This was my favorite two. I am so glad they are engaged and hopefully will get married soon. I could not stand Melissa - She was so fake to me smiling all the time. Congratulations to both and wish you the very best.


From the get-go I felt Molly and Jason should be together. Their chemistry was right and I felt they were being truly honest with each other. I don't know why anyone would be upset with him realizing his mistake. We all have made mistakes but at least he was honest.


congrats to them :)


i am so tired of people dogging these people. kudos to jason for letting melissa go, better now than in a marriage. i am glad apparently all are happy, and melissa has moved on


He claims there wasn't chemistry between he and Melissa...isn't that one of the first things you determine in a relationship...I relaly don't think you propose to someone if there's no chemistry, duh!...and it sure looked like he had enough chemistry with her on the show...Molly straddled him in the last episode and told him he was making a big mistake after he told her he chose Melissa...gee, could that be why he ended up with skank Molly?? Melissa is one of a kind and he passed that up...his loss!


i jus wish u had stayed with Melissa

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.
