Though he wasn't picked in the finale of "The Bachelorette," Jason Mesnick isn't just giving love another shot -- he says he's found it.
Mesnick, ABC's newest "Bachelor," says he's engaged to one of the women who compete for his affection on the reality series, which premieres Monday night. The 32-year-old accountant has finished filming "The Bachelor," but can't reveal his pick until the finale.
Mesnick says being pursued by 25 women made him empathetic to "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas, who chose snowboarder Jesse Csincsak over him.
Says Mesnick: "It gives you a lot more respect for what she had to go through."
Csincsak and Pappas have since broken up.
What The El!?! Editorial:
I hate to confess, I missed the premiere last night. I know, I know, shame on me.
I tuned in just in time to see the sneak peek at the rest of the season and it looks like it's high drama this season, but it's the same ol' high drama just add a dash of DeAnna.
The tease makes you believe she shows up at the house unannounced to tell Jason she picked the wrong guy. Of course the women are livid.
There's an encore next week, I guess because they knew a ton of women were watching the Longhorns kick some Buckeye butt!
