ABC and Macys.com would like to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Jason Mesnick!
Our Host Chris Harrison: “Once upon a time, there was a handsome single dad from Seattle who was looking for love and searching for his soul mate. He found his true love, then dumped her on TV and asked Molly to marry him. This is their love story.”
That’s right ladies and gentlemen. According to Harrison, this is the wedding that America has been waiting for!
Seriously. I didn’t make that part up. He actually said that on camera. With a straight face. And a twinkle in his eye.
This is why we adore the Hare.

Best former Bachelor cameos that made you think of six degrees of separation:
a. DDAHnna…who dumped Jake for Jesse the snow boarder, smiles lovingly at her new boyfriend Stephen who is the brother of Break Dancer Mikey who was dumped by Jillian. Harrison looks at DDAHnna’s left hand which is ringless. Mute Stephen says nothing. DDAHnna scolds Harrison for scaring her boyfriend. NOW SHE’LL NEVER GET MARRIED OR HAVE AN ABC WEDDING SPONSORED BY MACY’S.
b. Jillian…who was dumped by the groom…is there with Ed. Our Host asks if there is a wedding date set. Ed laughs and gives Hare a “bless his heart” look as Jillian confirms that their Macy’s sponsored wedding will have blue skies. Or at the very least…an inside contingency plan.
c. Snow boarder Jesse, who was dumped by DDAHnna sitting two rows over, had a wing man in Richard and is totally getting the 4-1-1 on Nikki who was also dumped by Jason.
d. Single Mom Stephanie…who was let go by Jason…is wearing the latest fashion forward style – pink fur. Her outfit was sponsored by the letter Q and the number 7.
The torrential downpour during Jason and Molly’s vows reminded you of:
a. Hurricane Ike
b. That scene in Karate Kid II where Daniel San has to save the little girl ringing the emergency weather bell.
