Justifiably or not, Jason Mesnick will always be remembered as the man who pulled the switcheroo on the "After the Final Rose" special of The Bachelor.
And while he is a few months removed from his stint on reality TV, Jason still must fend off Bachelor backlash for breaking up with Melissa Rycroft.
On the aforementioned special, he was seen dumping Melissa (though it was over between them prior to that), for another chance with Molly Malaney.
"I think the time when people have been negative is when, like, a girl's boyfriend just broke up with her and they look at me like it's all my fault ..."
"I'm sorry if you feel that way, but it's not me! It happens every day and it wasn't me, I promise. I didn't put him up to it," the single dad protests.
Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos Maria caught up with Jason and Molly in Turks & Caicos, where the couple was enjoying a weekend mini-vacation to celebrate the grand opening of Beaches Turks & Caicos' New Italian Village.
The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick ended up with Molly Malaney, while Melissa Rycroft, left, and Jillian Harris, both of whom went on to further reality TV stardom.
After spending months being hounded by cameras for The Bachelor, have the two gotten used to life in the spotlight? Or are they happy to be free of it?
"I don't think you can ever get used to the cameras being on you," Molly Malaney, who still lives in Milwaukee but is mulling a move to Seattle, admitted.
"We really stepped away from everything. That's not why we did the show. That's not why we did any of this," the father of four-year-old Ty added.
As has become customary, once The Bachelor ends, one of the jilted lovers lands their own show - as is the case with new Bachelorette star Jillian Harris.
So does Jason have any advice for Jillian, who made it to his final three last season before he selected Melissa and Molly as his final two?
