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.

    yes I will watch. I thought ms. Pappas made a big mistake. By the way are they still together. I don’t believe it will last.

    Obviously if you are on this site and commenting, you pay attention to the show regardless if you watch it or not. Many women would date men with children and he is a “real” guy and being a single dad none the less how do you date, so I think its great he does the show. Some, very few have been lucky on it. Good Luck Jason, I will be watching.

    WHAT!? Jason and all of us have to wait till January 09 for The Bachelor! That’s too long! I guess good things come to those who wait. Jason is so charming, (and a great listener) and I hope he finds the woman of his dreams. I’ll definitely watch and hope he finds a great woman who will respect and love him and Ty. They both deserve it.

    Brianna Says:

    Yay! I will definetely watch this because I watched him get rejected by Deanna. I really wanted her to pick Jason.

    Everyone thats saying no one watches this show…. they are wrong because a lot of people do and thats obvious or it would be discontinued.

    I hope he finds a good girl!!!!!!

    Jeri Says:

    Quite disappointed that he seriously is going to be on the show again. I thought that he was interesting on the show and I have to say, quite into it near the end. But now…not so sure I would watch it. I feel he shouldn’t pursue this type of exposure for himself for his son’s sake.

    ash n. Says:

    That would be a defanite YES!!!
    He is sooooo cute if I was deanna I wouldn’t let a good guy like that slip through my fingers. She was such an idiot!!
    But that’s her deal. Now hopefully he can find a girl who can love him and his son with all her heart because he’s a great guy,and now a days that’s pretty hard to find. I wish him the best of luck!

    rbgold Says:

    That would be a YES!!!
    He is sooooo cute!! Deanna is such a dim wit and that dang accent of hers lordy …..jessie was ugly an had the personality of a flee and short as heckhe could have been mistaken for greek with that nose of his or was he greek hmmmm…an all that i dont wana kiss you yet was so corny i cant be leave she fell for it but then again (deanna) you can’t take a gurl from the hills an make her a lady she wouldnt have been able to handle the life style jason lived in he better off in finding a classy lady

    cONSTANCE Says:

    Hey, has everyone forgotten that you can vote for your next bachelor-ette? I think it is great that he gets the chance to find someone. He was strung along by DeAnna, who kept saying she wanted children right away and that it didn’t matter that he had a child and even her family loved Jason, not Jesse. I believe Jason was truly in it for the chance to find his true love and Jesse wasn’t in it for any serious reasons. Just remember his jacket. He wasn’t serious and isn’t serious about a relationship. He just didn’t have to spend the money for an expensive engagement ring, has the spotlite on his every move now and is having his ENORMOUS ego stroked constantly. I feel Jason has a chance to find someone and this time it is HIS CHOICE. On the other hand, I would loved to have seen the editing floor of all that went on with DeAnna and her quest to find someone. Maybe thousands would not have been shocked by the outcome. YOU DON’T JUST WAKE UP ONE MORNING AND CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT SOMEONE AND ABOUT A MAJOR DECISION LIKE MARRYING THAT GUY.

    Jason, you can count on me watching to see who is the lucky lady..

    Amanda Says:

    Wow, all you people are harsh!! If any of you watched the last season when he was falling in love with Deanna then maybe you would know he is a really nice guy who is trying to find Mrs right. If none of you watch the show or plan on it then why are you researching it? Get a life of your own, and stop critizing people who are trying to do what they think is right for them!!

    Jenifer Jones Says:

    Can Jason pick a person who was on a show previous the first lady would be Amber A and second one is Holly D one from the Andy Baldwin set, and the next one is from Matt Grant.I think they both would fit Jason type and Amber looks like DeAnna the story teller is not very honest with her feelings and I do hope her and Jesse last.

    Jenifer Jones Says:

    yay yay yay you better know I will tape it also.

    Yes, I will definitely watch. I think DeAnna made a mistake by choosing Jesse.

    iluvjason Says:

    Definitely will watch. I loved Jason from the first clip they showed of him. Any girl would be lucky to date him. DeAnna was stupid and made the wrong choice which I’m sure will come back to haunt her one day. I am so happy ABC decided to go with Jason. I have NEVER liked any of the bachelors on the shows before. Jason seems like the first sincere guy. Most of the others seemed only interested in meeting a bunch of hot ditzy girls. I hope his selection is better than what has been shown in the past and that he actually has some quality women to chose from. I can’t wait. For the first time, I will actually be looking forward to the show.
