    DeAnna was NOT IN LOVE with Jason so she did the right thing by letting him go. He deserves a chance to find the right woman for him. He will find somebody that will love him the way DeAnna loves Jesse.
    He was not in love with DeAnna, he was ready to be in love, there is a difference.

    He is such a loser! Can’t believe he’s going to expose his kid to a series of women, bring someone into their lives and take a chance that it works out. What a lazy putz.. I saw this guy on the Bachelorette – He’s too scared to try meeting a woman on his own.

    Thank you Victoria #31. DeAnna is thrilled with Jesse and they’re having a ball. I can’t believe STILL all these harpies won’t accept that.

    And before some of you ladies get too excited just know that this dork sweats profusely, is balding and has absolutely no booty whatsoever. If that floats your boat then enjoy! On the plus side he has a nice chest, but that’s about it. Bottom line is he’s a part-time single dad who should find another way to meet ladies. But he won’t because he craves the attention he’s been getting after getting rejected. Pathetic man.

    I think I would watch it. I really enjoyed Jason on the Bachellorette. I though he was nice, hot, and I thought DeAnna was really going to pick him. I would totally watch it. I just feel bad for him and his son cause it seems like they are SO close

    I really think Jason is so desperate to find someone he’s resorting to publicly displaying his escapades for the world to watch. I find the whole reality factor a ruse to get people to watch, however, most ‘normal’ people would not subject themselves or their families to such public exposure. I am surprised that Jason has agreed to do this – I suppose they offered him a lot of $$$… which is also very sad. Has he not followed all of the shows and does he not know what the success rate is … only 1 couple…It’s a legacy that I highly doubt his son will be bragging about when he is old enought to get it… Also his wife left him… has not anyone heard there are always 2 sides to every story… He is a sad sort of sap… which does not come across as too attractive. Love is such a private matter that I think these shows make a mockery of it all…

    Yes!!! I love him, I should have applied. I hope he meets some one genuine, it would be a first on that show but it could happen.

    Gross. Isn’t the bachelor supposed to be some sort of fantasy? Young, rich, single, tall, dark and handsome with no attachments. Who wants to see a PG version of the show with a single father? Especially this pansy?

    I don’t watch, and these men always look so, for lack of a better made-up-word, plasticy.

    Pat Says:

    I didn’t know his wife left him, and if he really can’t help it, well – then I truelly am sorry for him. And it’s good that he takes care of his son.
    But still, I’d rather date someone who didn’t have children, because as a stepmom you have many (also financial) responsabilites and almost no rights. When a child goes of the rails, there is nothing a stepmom can do (without her husband) but very often she is forced to help pay the alimony for the first wife. Many second wifes can’t afford to have children of their own, because more than halve of what they earn goes to the ex-wife and the children from the first marriage.
    So still, no matter what his circumstances are – a divorced father is not exactly my first choice. I’d rather date someone considered ‘too old’ or ‘too young’ that would still be less stressfull than deal with all the issues of a failed first marriage. I see so many stepmoms bend themselves over backwards, they have almost a second job with all the extra housework the children bring – and the children’s father seldom chips in. The time, money and affort a stepmom gives is taken for granted most of the time.
    So even if I do feel somewhat sorry for him, I still wouldn’t want to date him. And I certainly wouldn’t want to be on this kind of reality show. The only reality shows I like are when people talk about their jobs, like Dirty Jobs on Discovery and the reality shows filmed in hospitals like we have over here (I live in Europe, not the US). I don’t think you can build a real, honest relationship when there are camera’s in your face all the time and when you have to compete with so many other woman. I’m just uncomfortable with the whole idea of being chosen out of such a large group of woman. No matter what the guy had going for him, it just doesn’t feel right. And the relationships that are formed this way seldom last, they seem to disintergrate almost as soon as the camera’s are gone. It is not the way to get a proper and healthy relationship, IMHO.

    Jason is a great guy, he is one of the normal, and genuine person the show has ever had. I wish him the best, he deserves someone amazing, but not sure going on national TV to find love is the way for him. really dont want to see him get hurt again..

    I did watch most of last season. I will say that I did not agree with Deanna’s choice of Jesse orginally. I thought that Jason would be a better match but it is her choice. I did get a chance to do a search on Jesse, only to find out that he does in fact have his own company and foundation to help kids in Colorado. I was a bit surprised. I guess he is a little more together than he appeared to be on the show! Good luck to all!!

    Give your telephone number to Jennifer Aniston. John Mayer just dumped her and I heard she and her publicist are looking for another guy. She I think I read somewhere that she is desperate and is dialing for dates.

    NAY! he is a ***. Why would someone want to date a used man, with a child. The bacherlor is suppose to be a fairy tail typr show. There is no fairy tail in a divorced man with a ugly child. I love the bacherlor , now i do not even want to watch it. Actually i will not watch it, and i have watched every season. I was so excited now im so dissapointed. BOOO
