Jason Mesnick, The Bachelor to Return January 5

by at . Comments

It seems like just a couple of months ago that Jason Mesnick was shockingly rejected by DeAnna Pappas on the season finale of The Bachelorette.

Oh, that's right, it was. But despite losing out to Jesse Csincsak - who DeAnna broke up with a week or so ago - Mesnick has gotten the last laugh.

The Bachelor will return to ABC on January 5 and this time, Jason Mesnick - a normal, single dad from Washington state - will be the man of the hour.

A two-hour episode will kick off the season. After that, the show will return to its usual 90-minute episode format, starting at 9:30 pm on Mondays.
