Where Are Melissa, Jillian & More of Jason Mesnick’s ‘Bachelor’ Contestants Now?
Despite his Season 13 airing over 11 years ago, it is safe to say Jason Mesnick is still one of the most controversial Bachelor leads of all time.
After breaking up with his final pick and fiancée Melissa Rycroft in the After the Final Rose special after the finale, Jason “pulled a Mesnick” (as it’s now referred), by turning around and asking out his runner-up, Molly Malaney. (Interestingly enough, nearly a decade later, Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. did the same thing, breaking up with winner Becca Kufrin for now-wife Lauren Burnham.)
Still, the Seattle-based single dad had to deal with his fair share of blowback at the time, but it’s obvious he made the right decision as he and Molly are still married today and have a child together!
The Monday, August 10 episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! takes us back down memory lane and reminds us of the incredible cast of characters on Jason’s season, from future Bachelorette and fan favorite Jillian Harris to Bachelor Pad alum Natalie Getz. Scroll down to get an update on where some of the Season 13 women are today.
