Jason Mesnick of "The Bachelor" appeared before Ellen DeGeneres as the most hated TV personality in this time frame. Just days after "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" nabbed the appearance of Melissa Rycroft who was dumped by Mesnick on After the Final Rose, the show has scored a double visitation from the controversial bachelor himself and his final choice, Molly Malaney.
Jason was welcomed with Katy Perry's song "Hot and Cold" that represents aptly his backing out from Melissa. He began his talk with Ellen, apologizing to all fans of the show out there. "... thank you for watching, but this was my real life and it was the hardest thing I had to do. And I made some big mistakes and that's what I wanted to sit here and talk about today-the mistakes that I made. But in the end I found my true love," Jason said.
On humiliating Melissa on national TV, Jason admitted that he regretted that decision. "I regretted it every single day since that happened and I will regret probably every day for the rest of my life," he said. "The producers obviously really wanted me to do it on the show, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I could've not shown up and when I look back, I was just trying to do what I thought was right for me, and if I could go back and do it again I would not do that."
Melissa said on her interview with Ellen that she believed Jason had talked to Molly prior to breaking up with her but Jason insisted that he had not.
Molly was then invited in the second segment, welcomed with Black Eyed Peas' "Don't Phunk With My Heart". She said that there are moments where she "sympathized with Melissa for sure." She further explained that she knows what Melissa is going through but "if there is any time to be selfish, it's when love is involved."
Ellen spurted a rather good question in the middle asking why Jason said that Melissa would make a good wife and whether that means Molly wouldn't. Jason said that Melissa is what he saw for the future while Molly is rather the middle of it and unfortunately he only realized 6 weeks later.
