There’s just one rose left as Monday's season finale of The Bachelor approaches, and it’s down to Melissa Rycroft and Molly Malaney, two people as worthy of being called Mrs. Jason Mesnick as any we could imagine (sorry, Hilary Mesnick).
While spoilers abound as to who wins it, one mystery is solved: The single dad will be presenting this ring and doing some crazy name-dropping of product placement references when he gets down on one knee at the final rose ceremony:
The marquis-cut diamond-and-platinum ring from Neil Lane features a 1.94-carat marquis-cut diamond encrusted with 170 smaller ones for a total of 3.18 carats.
As is custom on the show, Jason Mesnick actually had three rings from which to choose, including pear-shaped and oval-cut diamonds. The hunk was torn between a marquis and oval-cut sparkler, but ultimately opted for the marquis.
Host-pimp Chris Harrison probably steered him in that direction.
“He loved the marquis because it had so much fine detail and he thought it was really feminine, and she would love it,” says a source close to The Bachelor.
So... who do you want to receive that sucker?
