In preparation for the widely-anticipated January 5 premiere, Jason Mesnick spoke to the press today. Here's what he had to say about ...... The decision to become The Bachelor:"It wasn't an easy decision because my question was, 'How would this impact Tyler?' That was my first question. I talked to a therapist and a pediatrician and they said, 'He's going to be fine'. I just said, 'I'm not gonna go more than a week or so without seeing him.' I can't do that. The show was great and they gave me what I need. He was around when he needed to be and he was with his mom when he needed to."... Single mothers being on the show this season:"Honestly, it doesn't make a difference either way. I would hope people would view me as a person, not just as a single dad. It didn't surprise me that there would be single mothers but it didn't make me think one way or the other."
