Chris Harrison, host of the hit ABC show The Bachelor, is known for referring to it as the “most dramatic show on TV,” and it’s no wonder why. Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick (formerly Malaney) of Season 13, which aired in 2009, have been a prime example of the show’s drama and heartwarming endings.
Jason Mesnick, a single father from Seattle, first appeared as a hopeful on Season 4 of The Bachelorette in 2008. While he was prepared to pop the question during the finale, the Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas, rejected his proposal and instead chose Jesse Csincsak.
The account executive was chosen as the lead for Season 13 of The Bachelor, which premiered on January 2009. After originally picking Melissa Rycroft as his winner, Jason decided to revisit his initial decision and break up with her. In an effort to make up for his broken promises, Jason proposed to Molly, the runner-up, in October of that same year.
Since then, Jason and Molly have been married and have a son together. Meanwhile, Melissa found her happily ever after with Tye Strickland, and they now have three children.
Bachelor Nation has been through the ups and downs and now, thanks to Netflix, viewers can finally catch up on the drama with Season 13 of The Bachelor, documenting Jason and Molly’s love story.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick (née Malaney) provided Bachelor Nation with a truly iconic love story that began on the fourth season of The Bachelorette in 2008. After DeAnna Pappas rejected Jason’s proposal and chose Jesse Csincsak at the finale, he was chosen to be the lead for Season 13 of The Bachelor in January of 2009. He initially chose Melissa Rycroft, but after proposing changed his mind and decided to instead be with Molly, the runner-up of the show.
The two reunited that October and were soon after married and have had a son together. While Jason and Molly have been together ever since then, Melissa reconnected with her now-husband, Tye Strickland, after Jason changed his mind and they now have three children.
Bachelor Nation can now catch up on the drama thanks to Netflix with Season 13, which documents the chaotic love story between Jason and Molly.
