'The Bachelor' Jason Mesnick raised questions and critics after backing out of his choice to go out with the other girl, and so he defends himself on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'.
Jimmy Kimmel is cashing in on the fever of "The Bachelor" which was just wrapped up on Monday, March 2. The talk show host welcomed Jason Mesnick to his show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and aired the episode right after his big decision of choosing Melissa over Molly and rethought his decision later on.
Jason for a fact was there to explain why he had a change of mind. Kimmel joked, asking Jason whether his hand is sore from handing in and taking the rose. Jason in defense said, "First of all, it was my real life and people can question that or doubt that but they're real feelings. On that last day I was falling in love with two girls but the time.. you don't know until you go through it."
On the decision that he decides to break up with Melissa on national television, Jason said, "I had to do it. Before we walked out for the After the Final Rose, we were not together. ... She knew exactly what was going on but we could not see each other before that so we had to have the conversation on the phone. ...So I had to do it in front of everybody. And I hated that. If I could have done it, you know with her in person one on one, of course that's the right thing to do. But my relationship was agreed by everybody involved to be done in front of everybody else."
Jason also admits in the interview that there has been no talk of marriage between him and Molly yet. "We are taking our own pace," he said. There will be another After the Final Rose episode tonight, March 3.
