Jason Mesnick Becomes New Bachelor

With Lincee in Colorado playing in the mountains, and considering a relocation there (according to her Tweet), I will be playing DH, for this announcement.

ABC has announced that Jason Mesnick — who proposed to DeAnna Pappas on last season’s Bachelorette, only to be rejected — will become the new Bachelor.

Rumor has it his son, Ty, will be picking the winner for this upcoming show.  Actually, I just made that up for this post.  I am shifty like that.   Talk amongst yourselves until Lincee returns.

Hmm. Interesting. Not sure how I feel about that.

Jason’s a good pick, but I’m not keen on using the kid in the show. How many of us were hopeful that Jeremy would get picked so we could stand in line for a shot at him? I know at least 5! 🙂

I’m really not very happy about this. I’m sure that Jason is a nice guy and all…but he annoyed me with his neediness and puppy dog expressions. Is he going to be jumping up and down when they get out of the limos? Gag. I am seriously considering skipping this season 🙁

I can’t wait to see how many of them bring a golf ball for the little guy to play with. (Remember, D’s little gift) I hope ABC does the right thing, and keep him out of the picture until her narrows it down to the hometown visits. I don’t think Ty needs to be meeting all of those crazy women….

I think Jason is actually in a mindset to get married…unlike a lot of the men who go on this show to get famous so they can get lots of women. So, there’s that.

I hope he doesn’t involve his kid too much…if at all. Keep the kid away from the ka-razies!

Webman, thanks for being on top of this.

I always say I am not going to watch this show…but i always do.

Hmmm…. I really loved Jason on the show, and this isn’t too surprising. But, I do think it’s a little strange – bringing a kid into a process like this is kinda shady? I think Jason is an awesome enough dad to keep Ty sort of removed from it, though. I will DEFINITELY be watching! I think it’ll be nice to have a Bachelor who we know isn’t a total douchebag!

P.S. I totally forgot about his neediness. Oh boy. That’ll make for some snark.

mixed emotions. he’s a doll and i thought he was so sincere. but i just don’t know. i can’t help wondering if he weren’t a dad, would we all heart him as much?

i’ll definitely tune in. if there are sincere girls, i could see it working out for him.

This will take him away from Ty, and whether or not Ty is even affected by it, it just makes him look bad. Maybe we’ll find out more about the mom – MAYBE they should have the mom be a “mole” in the contestants & get the inside scoop on who’d be a good/bad stepmom for Ty. Everyone is crazy on this show – let’s not bring a toddler into it.

So does this mean that the bachelorettes that will be introduced to him might have kids too? I wanted them to pick Jeremy too. Darn.

Lincee, you’ll love Colorado…. although it’s always hard to leave your family and friends, there are wonderful friendly people here and lots of dedicated readers. Webman, what happened to the box on the right side where you could click on the recent comments, instead of scrolling down?
Jason – ok, I can see it. A toddler involved? Not so much…..

I personally am much happier with Jason than I would have been with Jeremy. Jason is needy, but I’d rather hear about a 3 year old for the whole season than Jeremy’s mom. And knowing them, ABC would have been evil enough to put at least 5 girls on the show whose moms had also died. Then we’d really never hear the end of it. I’m not trying to be insensitive, I just don’t want to be depressed either.
Jason should be a good bachelor, and I hope he finds a good girl!
