The Bachelor..."What a Douche Bag!"

The title of this post is a direct quote from my husband tonight during the After the Rose show. And I will agree that even if he isn't a douche bag in real life, the producers and show sure did just make him look like one.

If you didn't watch, here is the quick recap. He chose Melissa, proposed to her and jumped into a pool with his super-cute son who was dressed in a tux. Then, he decided after dating Melissa after the show that she wasn't right for him, gave her the boot on the After the Rose show, and then asked his runner-up Molly if he could have a second chance with her.

I mean, come on...how wishy-washy can you be! Molly better watch out! (And on a mean side note, how thrilled must his ex-wife be to say to everyone, "See, I told you so!") I hope this doesn't negatively affect his son in any way...it seems funny how he didn't mention how he was considering his son in the situation at the After the Rose show like he did throughout the season!

Although, keep in mind, this isn't the first time in Bachelor history that a bachelor has dated the runner-up after breaking up with the chosen one. The Italian Prince, Lorenzo, dated Sadie, the runner-up from his season shortly after he gave the final rose to another girl.

In any case, the producers of this show should know that in the world of a show "jumping the shark" when it has seen its last hurrah, this is the case of a show jumping a thousand sharks in the most dramatic Bachelor season ever! Boooo!

One other note, Jason was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and did say that he was contractually obligated to break up on TV with Melissa. He said that he would have never wanted to do it like that but the show made him. To quote Melissa, the producers are such "bastards!"

It sounds like an excuse to me that the producers made him do it. All he had to do was either pretend to be happy with her until after they taped the show or break up with her way before. I feel like he is the ultimate d-bag!!! And I can't believe Molly would take him back after that! He has NO class.

my boyfriend said jason is a poor excuse for a man. who cares if you are contractually obligated to break up with her on TV... just the fact that he isn't willing to work it out with melissa shows that he is always going to want what he can't have.

molly is equally as ridiculous.

whatever. i hope melissa is alright. texans are tough, and she'll get through this with more class and grace as ever.

he doesn't deserve her anyway...

Jason needs to make up his mind, maybe not propose so fast next time, and set a good example for his son!

I agree with your husband! Still can not believe that is what happened!

I googled "The Bachelor douchbag" and it brought me here. I knew he had to be a douche since the very beggining.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my little blog! I love new friends!

Okay..Jason and I used to be lovers (in my head) and now he can just suck it. I'm done with him and the Bachelor/ette. I think the producers are horrible, horrible people for what they put Melissa through. That poor girl. Love your blog!
