Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, one of the most controversial (and successful) couples in the history of The Bachelor, are getting married in just over a month.

ABC will be televising it in a two-hour special.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding, will air Monday, March 8. We're fairly sure that's one week after the current season finale, which would make sense.

The big wedding special for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will also show the bride's dress fitting, planning for the day, bachelor/bachelorette parties, etc.

Past participants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will be on hand, which probably goes with the territory when Mike Fleiss gets to plan your nuptials.

The Bachelor's 0-13 marriage steak is about to come to an end! Well, technically not, as Molly Malaney didn't receive Jason Mesnick's final rose ... but close enough!

The Bachelor wedding is only the second such event in the franchise's 19 seasons. The Bachelorette star Trista Rehn married Ryan Sutter on TV in 2003.

Jason proposed to Molly Malaney in New Zealand, the site of the infamous March 2009 season finale where he initially chose Melissa Rycroft instead of her.

He soon broke up with Melissa and asked Molly for another chance on the After the Final Rose special. She said yes, and they got engaged in October.

Mesnick first became a franchise fixture as runner-up on DeAnna Pappas' edition of The Bachelorette. He then became The Bachelor's first single dad.

Everyone on The Bachelor hates Vienna Girardi.

We're starting to understand the reason (or two reasons) why the only one who's opinion matters, star Jake Pavelka, has taken a liking to her, however.

ABC's official "bio" for Vienna Girardi, who has quickly become the enemy of every other girl left on the series, lists her as a "marketing representative."

Looks like they conveniently left out some of her free-time pursuits ...

  • Vienna Girardi Topless
  • vienna

Vienna Girardi sure can strategically wear a scarf, and clean up nice.

The above pic, unearthed by some site called Hollywood Life, is from a pinup calendar sent to over 2,500 clients and friends of C.O.D. Trees, Inc. of Oviedo, Fla., in 2009.

We have no idea what any of that means. What we do know is that it will surely fuel the fire for V's haters (as if rumors of her dating someone else weren't enough).

One wonders how Jake will feel when he finds out about this.

The Bachelor spoilers we've read project Vienna as one of the final girls standing. If that's true, we can see this (topless!) bomb being dropped on Jake soon enough.

You know Mike Fleiss is salivating over this ... possibly in more ways than one.

Jake Pavelka's quest for a life partner continued last night, and The Hollywood Gossip staff endured The Bachelor to recap it for you with our exclusive point system.

Awarding and deducting scores as we deem fit, here's THG's take on last night's episode, which saw a very serious Jake narrow his field of contestants to five:

Chris Harrison announces that he will now be pimping the girls up and down the California coast. Bachelor road trip, RV style. Lots of screaming ensues. Minus 5.

The girls not in Vienna's RV start bashing her immediately. Plus 3.

First stop on the road trip? Wine country. Jake on the vineyard: "There are fields of grapes in all directions." One typically will see that in a vineyard, yes. Minus 4.

Tenley Screams

The first 15 minutes of the episode summed up in one image.

Gia and Jake spend their critical one-on-one date in the vineyard playing hide-and-seek and spin the bottle. Nauseating, but at least she's really trying. Plus 4.

Jake Pavelka confides that in 9th grade, his nickname was "Mr. Dateless." Minus 6, because there's no way Jake or any 9th grader has ever been called that.

Group date time. This mostly consists of Jake rolling around in the sand with a squeaky, flirty Tenley Molzahn. Doesn't look like the worst time ever. Plus 7.

Minus 2, though, for how he lamely says "it's time to get down n' dirty." Jake, stop reading the cue cards and acting like a stiff for five f*%king seconds.

Tenley Molzahn gets a rose. Ali is going to poison Vienna pretty soon. Plus 5.

The 2-on-1 date is going to be "so difficult" for Jake, but he's "going to do what my heart tells me." By his heart, he means Chris and Mike Fleiss. Minus 9.

Jake Sets Rose on Fire

Jake tries to act like this scene was totally spontaneous.

Jessie totally pulls a Jake Pavelka on Jake Pavelka, who is now in Jillian Harris' position. Jessie "warns" Jake about Vienna 'cause she cares SO MUCH! Plus 6.

Besides how much Vienna supposedly sucks, the big narrative producers are beating into our skulls this season is that Jake is, like, really serious about finding a wife. As opposed to other Bachelor stars who are there for what reason? Minus 11.

To that end, Jake boots both girls after the 2-on-1 date. Deep in thought, he then SETS THE ROSE ON FIRE! Plus 12 for that staged, but hilarious moment.

At the rose ceremony, he calls time out! Minus 5, because you shouldn't be able to do that. He wants to cut an extra girl. Understanding pimp Chris agrees.

The final rose goes to ... Vienna Girardi! Plus 8 for dragging that inevitable result out as long as humanly possible to mess with us - and royally piss off Ali.

TOTAL: +1. SEASON: +24. Rose recipients: Gia, Corrie, Tenley, Ali and Vienna. Sent packing by Jake Pavelka: Ashleigh, Jessie, Kathryn, and Ella.

Things our wives said:

  • "I really hate how much they scream."
  • "[Gia] looks like a high-maintenance airhead, but she's so pretty."
  • "[Vienna] needs to lay off the dark eye shadow. Her clothes are really bad too. I mean, where do you even BUY some of those outfits?"

Former Bachelor star Matt Grant, who starred on the show's 12th season and got engaged to Shayne Lamas for like 12 seconds, has a new show in the works.

Its name? Pimp My Bride! Sadly, we are serious.

"[It's] an organic follow-up to The Bachelor," the British financier said, adding that he first conceptualized the series after finishing filming The Bachelor back in 2008. "It's bascially about the groom being in control of the wedding."

No couple from The Bachelor has ever had a wedding, of course (minor details) but maybe Jake Pavelka can pimp Vienna Girardi on the series premiere!

Matt Grant is returning to reality TV. Do you care?

In addition to producing Pimp My Bride, Grant, whose engagement to Shayne Lamas was quite short-lived is also considering taking part of another new show.

"They've asked me to possibly do the Bachelor Pad show," he said. "It's like Big Brother Bachelor with all the Bachelors in a house. I've thought about doing it because I'm obviously not famous anymore and it would give me 15 minutes!"

Well, at least he's up front about that. Gotta give him credit there.

Here's an enduring image from Matt's season of The Bachelor ...

Shayne Lamas Pic

Shayne was really, really, REALLY excited about getting a rose.

As if this season of The Bachelor couldn't get any more scandalous, sources say Vienna Girardi has been dating a guy on and off for years - including while on the show!

How much blatantly manufactured drama can Jake Pavelka endure?

First, there was Rozlyn Papa and her “inappropriate relationship” with producer Ryan Callahan. Now it's Vienna Girardi whose dalliances are being called into question.

Here she is with the alleged beefcake ...

Vienna Girardi, Boyfriend

Is this The Bachelor contestant Vienna Girardi's boyfriend?

Anonymous sources tell THG that the hunk in the photos is from Vienna’s hometown of Sanford, Florida and that Vienna pulled an Ed Swiderski, telling her boyfriend “she was going to the bachelor so she can be on TV and to wait for her.”

A source also claims Vienna and he were together the night before she left to be on The Bachelor! If true, she's operating straight out of Ed's playbook!

This must be taken with a grain boulder of salt, however.

Other reports say this relationship lasted from 2008-2009 but is now over, and that the boyfriend (whose name we have withheld) is not in the picture.

Perhaps more significantly, we don't trust any Bachelor news. This, very likely, is part of a coordinated effort to sour public opinion on Vienna Girardi.

A narrative was seeded last week in which the girls begin to despise Vienna for unknown reasons. We believe this is to make us "shocked" when that "b!tch" receives the final rose in the season finale instead of sweet Tenley Molzahn.

Think we're talking out of our a$$? Our Bachelor spoilers are rarely wrong. This show makes up drama because 90 percent of viewers fall for it every time.

The other 10 percent? We are totally on to Mike Fleiss, Chris Harrison & Co. and their conspiracies, but we still watch anyway, so it's a win-win for them.

The drama on The Bachelor so far this season was nothing, Jake Pavelka says.

According to an interview he did with Entertainment Tonight, the lowest point on the hit ABC series hasn't happened yet, and when it does, look out!

"That is yet to come and it won't be any secret," the 31-year-old commercial pilot says. "It's horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10."

Jake says that he was "so devastated" by the events that he had to turn himself off a little bit. "It is juicy now, but it is going to get a lot juicier."

Will You Accept This Rose?

Despite everything that has happened on The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka says none of the women ever got on his nerves and there was no point at which he wanted to bolt.

In fact, he hopes that Rozlyn Papa, who was accused of an "inappropriate relationship" with producer Ryan Callahan, which she denies, finds love.

As for crazy Michelle, who came off as bat$hit insane, he says, "Great girl. Maybe a little over emotional, but she was there for me, not anybody else."

And then there is the lovely Vienna Girardi, who has proven to be a huge hit with Jake so far, but not exactly with the other girls in the mansion.

"There is a level of honesty that comes from her that is turning the girls off," he says. "It is like on our bungee jumping date, it went really well."

"She goes back and starts talking about it, saying, 'You really get to see who Jake is,' but the other girls don't want to hear that. She is naturally trying to talk about something wonderful in her life. Bless her heart, it gets her in trouble."

Bless her heart indeed, my man.

Tenley

Early favorites Tenley Molzahn, left, and Vienna Girardi.

As the pretenders are culled from the field of contenders each week, the show is getting closer to overnight, fantasy suite dates. Jake's take on that?

"I have nothing to apologize for," he says. "The greatest thing about the fantasy suites is you don't have to go in there and make babies. It is a great opportunity to go in there and spend more time with a girl you are falling in love with."

So we're guessing Jake doesn't get Tenley pregnant in the fantasy suite. Too bad, that would make for a great subplot after he chooses Vienna.

Despite making every episode two freaking hours long, The Bachelor apparently didn't have time to air the bombshell scene it spent the past week promoting.

Conveniently, that scene was edited, manipulated nonsense.

An exchange in which Tenley Molzahn was shown telling Jake Pavelka she was pregnant was hyped to no end on the show's commercials, only to be omitted.

"It was cut for time," a show spokesperson said of Tenley's pregnancy confession, which, as predicted by THG, was just her punking Jake for a brief moment.

"There's something I have to tell you ... I just found out I'm pregnant," Tenley Molzahn told a stunned Pavelka. Pause. "I'm just kidding! I'm so sorry!"

The deleted scene appears below ...

As is their tradition, ABC's commercials had promoted a highly edited version of the exchange: "Just when this bachelor thought he couldn't take any more drama!" ABC's announcer proclaimed as Tenley told Jake "I'm pregnant" and appeared to sob.

The failure to feature any mention or explain the quote in Monday's episode marked the third straight week the show failed to include promoted material.

The season premiere promised a "special announcement" from Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski that didn't end up happening. It was their wedding date.

Week two was hyped up with a sound bite in which an unidentified girl referred to Rozlyn Papa's alleged "inappropriate relationship" as "a sexual affair."

That clip never aired on the episode either.

Tenley's pregnancy joke actually took place prior to when she gave her earnest speech about her past and her painful divorce. It was playful and meant for Jake to laugh, and was actually pretty funny ... at least in its intended context.

The Bachelor's Michelle? Not what you would call sane. But at least she says she can laugh looking back at her memorable appearance on the reality show.

Laughing through tears? Laughing as she plots the murder of Jake Pavelka, Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi? Possibly. Hope they have alarm systems.

Ben Flajnik Shirtless

On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Michelle became the second contestant this season to make an exit before any roses were even doled out.

The previous week, Rozlyn Papa was booted off for her so-called "inappropriate" conduct. This week, Jake asked crazy pants Michelle nicely to hit the road.

Michelle basically demanded that Jake kiss her, then threatened to leave because of their lack of one-on-one time, unless Pavelka insisted that she stay.

Jake's response: "I think it would be better if you did leave."

The booted Michelle, a fan favorite, appeared today on Wednesday's Ellen, and told Ellen DeGeneres "I laugh about it!" as she recounts how it all went wrong.

"You have to expect something like that going into the show," she says, which is ironic, as she seemed completely unprepared to deal with ... well, anything.

Michelle tells DeGeneres that she sensed "hesitation" from Jake Pavelka when she asked if she could kiss him - ya think?! - and it hurt: "I was in it full force."

"I didn't feel anything back from him. Why waste each other's time?"

She blames the encounter on the group date format: "It would have been different if we had one-on-one date," she said. "It was like eight of us and it was the whole day and evening; I didn't even get to talk to him until that night."

A fact that she let everyone know on a routine basis with icy glares, near-meltdowns, panic attacks and serial-killer eyes. We'd say Jake made the right call.

Some of our interns are into the crazy thing though. Call us, Michelle!

As usual, The Hollywood Gossip staff endured The Bachelor last night to bring you our official recap, with points awarded/docked according to our scientific system.

In the season's third episode, Vienna Girardi emerged as a frontrunner, and Michelle became even more insane. Here's THG's take on that and so much more ...

Jake takes Vienna bungee jumping "to overcome their fears as a couple." A couple who met like 10 days ago. And jumps off a bridge entirely by choice. Minus 5.

Plus 12, though, for the show blatantly recycling this story line from Jason and Molly's season, but Minus 12 for V saying she's "on cloud Jake right now." Wow.

Michelle: "I really want a 1-on-1 date with Jake. I really do." You're joking! Plus 16, as she also wants to kiss Jake softly and pull his hair. She is bat$h!t insane.

Jake and His Harem

Jake Pavelka and his Bachelor babes after their comedy venture.

Plus 6 to Jon Lovitz for purposely not being funny at his own comedy club, in order to help take the pressure of the suitors. (That is what he was doing, right?!?)

Corrie absolutely trashes Vienna Girardi in her standup routine, and other girls throw her under the bus too. Minus 10 for the cattiness, even for The Bachelor.

The girls HATE Vienna, yet we never see her do anything bad. A theory? It's part of the narrative so we're "shocked" when she wins (see Bachelor spoilers). Even.

Ali on Michelle: "She just seems a little off." Ya think?! Plus 2.

Ella had a nice date with Jake at Sea World. They're great together, but Minus 4 because they involved her 7-year-old son when she's obviously not gonna win.

Tenley Molzahn opens up to Jake about her past and divorce. We admit it, we're finally hooked on a contestant. She seems so sincere and squeaky. Plus 13.

Tenley and Jake

Jake and sweet, sweet Tenley have a tender moment.

Jake: "I'm not a serial dater." With the exception of appearing on two reality shows based around dating. Minus 4, because we thought he "believed in the process."

Mean, when Michelle pressures Jake to kiss her, and he reluctantly does so, his expression is PRICELESS. Plus 1,000 because he's as scared of her as we are!

Minus 7 for Elizabeth being such a tease, and a really bad one at that. Seriously, girls used to play these games with us in fifth grade. They totally worked, but still.

TOTAL: +1,007. SEASON: +23. Roses: Vienna, Ella, Gia, Corrie, Tenley, Ali, Jessie, Kathryn and Ashleigh. Eliminated: Valishia, Elizabeth and crazy a$$ Michelle.

Things our wives said:

  • [on Jake, multiple times] "Was that him attempting to be funny again?"
  • "These girls are even dumber than I thought, which is saying something."
  • "I'm going upstairs to watch videos of my own stomach instead."
  • [on Michelle] "Doesn't she make you nervous? I'm uncomfortable."
  • "I wish I could accept a rose ... so I could stab myself with its thorns."

With the drama of Rozlyn Papa and her "inappropriate" relationship with producer Ryan Callahan dying down, you knew The Bachelor had a new scandal brewing.

The bomb waiting to be dropped this week? Tenley Molzahn reveals to Jake Pavelka that she's pregnant! Well, maybe. Kind of reeks of a promo-only stunt to us.

Shayne Lamas and Matt Grant Photo

Tenley, who works in admissions for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Huntington Beach, Calif., confesses in a preview that she's knocked up.

The 25-year-old was previously married, and said last week, "I haven't dated anyone since my ex-husband," leaving us wondering who the father of her baby is.

Our guess? No one. Tenley Molzahn is punking Jake and two seconds after she drops the baby bomb, she'll proclaim "Ha, just kidding!" Take that to the bank.

PERFECT TENLEY: Pregnant or not, will she win The Bachelor's heart?

Interestingly, the sweet, beautiful Tenley is said to make the final two this season, along with Vienna Girardi, according to The Bachelor spoilers we've read.

That's just speculation, but our source has been right before.

Namely, we knew about the Molly-Melissa switcheroo by Jason Mesnick, Ed Swiderski winning The Bachelorette (and likely cheating on Jillian), and the Rozlyn scandal.

What do you think? Is Tenley Molzahn pregnant? Does she have good chemistry with The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka? Are you rooting for her this season? Comment!

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.
