In the show's previews throughout this season, The Bachelor host Chris Harrison has been promising viewers "the most shocking twist in Bachelor history."
Suffice it to say, he made good on the hype.
Despite proposing to Melissa Rycroft on the season finale that aired just moments ago, Jason Mesnick's engagement to the beautiful former cheerleader from Dallas, Tx., is apparently off after some unknown events took place in the past few months.
Turns out those scandalous Bachelor spoilers were more or less right.
The skinny: Six weeks have passed since the season finale was taped, but mere minutes for viewers. Jason tells Chris that it's not gonna work with Melissa, he's been thinking about Molly Malaney, and he's gonna dump Melissa on national TV.
Talk about a d!ck move. Oh, sorry, we mean "emotionally difficult."
Jason's news certainly did not go over well with Melissa, who calls Jason a bastard and makes completely valid points ... albeit ones that lose something when cameras pan to Chris next to her. She storms off, and Molly Malaney takes the stage.
Molly, who supposedly has no idea why she's there, and has not talked to him in six weeks, confides to Chris that despite his choosing Melissa in New Zealand, Jason is definitely still the man of her dreams. Convenient, and not at all staged.
Jason Mesnick returns to the stage and tells Molly how he just ended it with Melissa, then asks Molly on a date. She looks at Chris and stares blankly. This is beyond ridiculous and kind of depressing that a real network is airing it.
Molly agrees to take him back and "see where things go."
So, with another "After the Final Rose" special on tap tomorrow, we can only ask: What now? Are you upset by this turn of events? Comment below!
