Jason Mesnick is the New 'Bachelor'

The Bachelorette‘s DeAnna Pappas rejected Jason Mesnick’s proposal last season, as he dropped to one knee to profess his love. Now he’ll get another shot at love when The Bachelor returns in January 2009 (it’s 13th season). Here’s what we know:

Jason is a native of Cleveland, Ohio, moved to Washington at the age of eight and received his BA in psychology at the University of Washington
– Single father from Seattle with a three-year-old son, Ty
– He divorced two years ago but wants to start another family
– He’s the middle son in a family of three boys and lives with his younger brother, Larry, and with Ty.
Jason is an account executive in estate and legacy planning,
– He loves a variety of sports, including swimming, golf, basketball and football.
– In his spare time, he takes guitar and swing dance lessons.
Jason is a “big brother” for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America. A philanthropist himself, he hopes to some day form and run his own children’s charity.

    WELL HOW DOES BACHELOR PICK THEIR GIRLS, I ENTERED MY SISTER NAME BEFORE I KNEW IT WAS JASON, NOW KNOWING IT WAS JASON, THEY WOULD BE PERFECT TOGETHER, THEY ARE BOTH PASSIONITE AND LOVE CHILDREN, SHE CARES SO MUCH ABOUT MY NIECE WHO MY PARENTS RAISES WHO HAS A BIRTHDEFECT , THAT SHE WOULD LOVE TO HELP ALL CHILDREN LIKE HER, BUT SHE WAS NOT PICKED- IT IS WEIRD ESPECIALLY SHE IS BEAUTIFUL- SO WHY DID BACHELOR NOT PICK HER.
    MY SISTER LOOKES LIKE EVA LONGRIA, LOVES SWING DANCE, BELIEVES IN MAGIC AND WANTS CHILDREN, BUT THE BACHELOR DID NOT PICK HER TO BE IN THE SHOW, THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME, HOW SHE DID NOT GET BACK- HER AND JASON WOULD OF BEEN THE PERFECT MATCH.

  • jACCI

    Jason is cute…like a child cute…..NOT handsome

    He even walks and runs like a child (tiny steps with arms in the air) and he has the tendency to talk like a child.

    He will not make a good bachelor……what bachelorette would want a “ready made family” with all the “baby momma drama”!!!!????

    Get Real!!!

  • kit

    of course i will!! i love jason!!

  • Mia36

    I will watch it for sure….he had his heart in the right place with DeAnna. I truly feel he will find someone for him. No one should pass judgement on him on why he is doing this show and leaving his son. I saw the relationship between him and Ty on tv and he loves his son more than anything in the world. He will find true love-and I will watch and cheer him on!! Go Jason Go!!!

  • jennifer

    Everyone as there opinion on this show and I have been watching since the 1st one aired with alex and marsha and you know all the guys want is to be notice and nothng else . Time will tell if Jason is for real or not I do think he is in this for real deal we shall see so don’t say he a idiot or the girls are dumb for I m like DeAnna every one needs love and you can find it on this show.

  • Victoria

    YAY!!!!!!!!! GO JASON! I can’t wait to see him find happiness. Deanna was an idiot to chose Jesse. Jason is they type of guy that most women dream of meeting. I don’t think him having a son will be as big of a deal since it doesn’t seem the mom is around much. I will definitely watch.

  • gianna

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    i loveeee him.

    and for all you people who dont like jason you honestly just want to marry him yourself.

    but to bad because im going to be on the show and he is GOING to pick me.

  • Linda

    Heck Yes, I am going to watch it only because he will be on it…He is the Bomb. I wanted Ms. D to pick him but maybe this is for the best him and Ty will find the right one this time. I am very excited about watching Jason in Jan. 2009 he is a Hottie with a body. I will be ther with the rest of my household standing there waiting and watching Jasons moves and watching to see who he picks. Our Blessings go out to Jason and Ty.

  • SINDHU MITSUISHI

    My name Sindhu. I come from India 2 years ago and never have seen such a cool show. I thought like totally Jeremy was like the best like dude ever and like if Deanna doesn’t like him, I’ll take him! That is, I would if I were a girl. I totally like thought Jeremy was a sexy beast. Lol but seriously I couldn’t like stop staring at him, and then I was all like, “I totally LOVE him!” But then my dad said I couldn’t watch it anymore because he was afraid I was gay. Whatever.

    You stupid losers who have nothing better to do then bash on Jason shut your pie holes and get a life. Some of us accutally like this show and you are wasting your time on these comments. If you do not have anything nice to say shut up. I Love Jason he was such a nice guy and TY was adorable!!!!!

  • Jodykay

    YES!! I absolutey 100% love this man! He is so freakin’ fine and he’s smart and funny and has the cutest little boy EVER!!! Of coarse I’ll be watching him!!!!!

  • Tina

    YAYYYYY! Jason is by far the best guy ever on this show. I wish him the best.

  • Danielle

    does anyone know the name of the song that is playing in the promotion of the new bacelor with jason mesnick for the jan 5 show? I love it and can’t figure out who sings it. please email me at
    sassydaneee@gmail.com
    thanks

  • http://cox Laura

    Jason is Awsome………..seems to be a great catch.
    Sounds like he has a big and loving heart.
    He deserves to be happy with a good loving and caring woman.

  • Annette

    Yes, I am looking forward to seeing how his season unfolds. We already know the ending is a happy one. He and his son, Ty, deserve a great beginning of a new life with someone they love. All things happen for a reason, and this is the reason that he was not chosen last season by DeAnna. God had other plans for him!

  • Lori

    Why is everyone so mean about Jason, I think he is a great guy from what I saw last season. I think you guys are just jealous of him, you guys know that if you had the chance to go on a reality show you would, so don’t dog him for doing it. I think he is a great catch and I can’t wait to see who the lucky woman is.

  • Amy

    Danielle, The song is “What about now” by Daughtry. Great song.

  • http://yahoo don’t take deanna back

    i hope that you pick the lady that has a little girl and i think that she will make a good mentor for your son ty. please don’t take deanna back because she will hurt you all over again.

  • http://yahoo pamela godfrey

    i hope that he tells deanna that he has already picked one of the other lady’s. i’m just hoping that he will tells her that she already had her chance and that he has moved on with someone else. i don’t think that deanna should be there and i hoping that all them other women tell her that it is to late.

  • rockiesnboots50

    i luv this show, and 1 thing i want to say is—-kick dianna pappas to the curb and dont even give her the time of day. i truly believe she is a player and a fake and just wants attention. she doesnt deserve a guy like jason. she would rather have a stupid acting person like jessee.

  • Kathy Ann

    Out of all the bachelors and bachelorette shows only one has worked out. I don’t think that it is fair for Deanna to come back into the picture because her and the snowboard guy didn’t work out. Jason is who she should have picked at the end of last season and just because it didn’t work out for her and Jessie she wants Jason now? I know this is a reality show and it is kind of silly, but it keeps me watching. Plus, this is the first the season where ALOT of the women have kids. Deanna is only on to keep our attention to see what Jason does. She won’t be on for long. Hang in there ladies. He will pick the right lady.

  • stop

    stop being mean he came out to find true love

  • newlywed

    All the woman this seasons show are so ditzy and not mature at all

  • http://www.jasonmesnick.com/ SHelly

    Can’t wait for the next episode! I just ran across a fan site dedicated to Jason: http://www.jasonmesnick.com/

  • B.SINGER

    I think Jason is extremely handsome, and very polite. The woman that he

    will choose will be very lucky. I enjoy the show very much.

  • Tante Liv

    DeAnna Pappas was an idiot not to choose Jason, but he was probably lucky to get away from a girl so immature. The big baby , skibum Jesse needs to grow up. I really hope Jason will find a kind and sweet woman that will love him and Ty, but it seems impossible to find a decent person before a camera.

  • Glynis mclaughlin

    What is Jason’s date of birth? Does anyone know?

  • angie

    Jason is fine. He went on the show to find true love and happiness. Was he contracted to do certain things and people shouldn’t judge him.

  • jessica

    Jason is not a man because he left mellisa for white ugly “Molly” 4 real is he ok or WHAT HE DID NOT WANTED 2 FIGHT 4 THEIR LOVE
    jASON NOT A MAN!!!!1
