"Bachelor" Jason: You're a Douche!

Single Mom Seeking followed Twitter during last night's "Bachelor" ... and the tweets were brutal!

bachelor jason with final two contestants

I've never in my life heard one man called a "douche" so many times in the span of two hours.

As I watched the oh-so-dramatic finale of "The Bachelor" last night, I simultaneously followed Twitter online.

In case you missed the climatic ending, "Jimmy Kimmel" put it well last night, following the "After the Final Rose Ceremony, " saying Jason Mesnick, the first-ever single dad Bachelor, "proposed to the love of his life, and then an hour later dumped her to go out with the other love of his life."

Ouch. Because Jason had signed away his right to privacy when he became the Bachelor, he had to dump Melissa on live television -- before professing his love to Molly.

"What a douche bag," Rachel, aka "The Candy Queen," wrote.

This Tweeter practically had me on the floor with her entertaining, honest criticism.

The Candy Queen went on to call Jason a "douche bag, douche candy, douche ball."

And she wasn't alone.

Every 30 seconds, someone else on Twitter was calling him a "douche" - along with "loser," "low class," and "insensitive."

(Not to go off on a tangent, but isn't "douche" an odd insult for a man? Is referring to a man as a cleanser for a woman's yoni really such a bad thing?)

"Maybe he just wanted to bone them both," The Candy Queen said. "How could you really be in love with two people at the same time? Has that happened to anyone out there?"

Uh, no. How about you?

"Melissa is incredible, sweet, and beautiful," Jason said last night during the finale. "But since this all ended, things have been different. We're not right for each other."

"Over the past few weeks, I haven't been able to stop thinking about Molly," he continued. "As soon as she left, I felt like a huge piece of me was gone."

As Jason went on to chuck Melissa on national TV, host Chris Harrison -- who looked like he might laugh or cry -- doubled as a couple's therapist. He gently tried to coach Jason to break up with Melissa, followed by the reunion with Molly.

"I could not do Chris Harrison's job," said The Candy Queen. "It's completely unethical"

To her credit, Melissa gets praise for handling this public humiliation with utmost maturity. I cheered her on when she muttered "bastard" under her breath. Did you?

No one seems to have empathy for Jason -- except maybe his family? (Jason's mom had seemed concerned about the fact that Molly was had a career, and therefore might not be a good mother.)

Lastly, I'd love know:

Did it annoy anyone else when Jason referred to every woman on Monday night as "a girl"?

Hello? If you're really hoping to find a life partner and step-mother, then we'd hope you'd have your sights out for "a woman."

Secondly, do you think that Jason had to give Melissa's engagement ring back to ABC?

When he proposes to Molly, will he have to fork over his own dough for a second engagement ring? Do you even care?

Just proves how ridiculously unrealistic this stupid program is.
Who finds their “life partner” or “soulmate” in six weeks? Maybe only Trista.

I truly feel for Melissa, but I believe Jason did the right thing. I respect all the parties involved. Maybe it should not have been on TV, but blame the producers for that. Also, about Jason crying, I respect a man who shows his emotions. I do wish the couple well and hope their love continues to grow.

Well it seems to me that not only is Melissa lucky, so is his first wife. What happened with them? She probably got smart and they supposedly have joint custody…also, I’m betting Melissa’s parents are certainly glad they stood by their guns and didn’t go on TV. Jason makes me sick. My husband said he was a jerk all along and he only passed through the living room occassionally!

I find it strange that only one other person thought it was thoughtless that he didn’t help his mother up. I think he’s spoiled by his family. The Bachelor Show should quit making them become engaged. They are no more ready for marriage after that show than they could fly.

if anyone had done that to my daughters i would snap them in half like a twig…he would even cry on my shoulder..what a sadist

The thing is, Molly gave in sooo fast, not even having him work for it. How convenient for Jason. I see this happen a lot and with dire consequences later. Marriage is good,waiting is better, Molly seems desperate. Being single is a blessing and a test of character in being able to live happily and WHOLLY as a single person. Jason is fickle and Molly should consider her pride and dignity..for goodness sakes she was SECOND in line and he was ADAMANT that Melissa was the one. Molly, get a spine girl!

After Jason proposed to Melissa,that should have been it. Whatever he decided to do a few months later, should never have been aired for everyone to witness. I’m sure that when Jason advised ABC that he intended to break it off with Melissa, they thought hmmm,this would be great stuff to air for ratings!
How sad that Jason was so shallow and spineless that he agreed to go through with this on national tv.If Jason chose to breakup with Melissa,and then pursue Molly,because he didnt feel he had made the right choice, well thats ok. But, after seeing him break down after sending Molly home,I thought this guy should not be proposing right now,he should have thought about it and said lets see what happens… How many of the other bachelors broke off their egagements,well lets see,probably most of them, and ABC would have loved to capture some of that drama for ratings.However,there are,I hope,very few people who would lend themselves to such a selfish,unkind and lowclass way of doing things. Did the people at ABC,and/or Jason ever think,how they would I feel if this was done to their daughters, sisters, mothers,or anyone that they love? My heart broke for Melissa,but she is certainly better off without someone like Jason! I do hope the best for Molly and Jason, but after seeing this on tv,and realizing what kind of guy would agree to go through with something like this,even if he was pressured by ABC, it is evident that Jason is not such a great guy after all.

Oh come on…what is the big deal? Other than Trista, there hasn’t one bacelor or bachelorette who hasn’t changed their mind. That italian prince guy was the first to dump the girl he picked and picked up with the second runner up, albeit that didn’t work either. Look at Deanna, she made the wrong choice and the program even exploited the fact on the finale! She wanted Jason back. she made a mistake.
I think it was Deanna’s visit that convince Jason to pick Melissa, because Deanna told Jason not the pick the fun one. Jason said over and over again how much fun and and Molly had.
Come one people…its better that he told her now that years down the road.

Sarah, The big deal is, that the breakup was done months after the engagement.The rose ceremonies were all over,the rest should not have been aired.And yes,Deanna,the Italian prince, and most of the others, also chose the wrong person and broke up.We’ve all been through breakups. None of them however,has been callous enough to do it in front of a national audience until now. You can bet that Jason was not the first one that ABC approached to do this kind of thing for the public to witness. Sure,I agree it’s better to tell her as soon as he realized that she was not right for him.But,the show was over,he didn’t have to agree to do this to Melissa in such an unkind manner.And the way he did it Sarah,is what makes it a big deal.

In a word Jason: THERAPY. You’ve got issues. Married, divorced, proposed to Deanna, proposed to Melissa, is going to propose to Molly…He’s really gay but can’t admit it. He’s a total DOUCHE!

fay March 4, 2009, 9:27 PM

What a loser this guy is. He apparantly is so full of himself that he thinks Molly will take him back
Whoops, she did.

bob March 4, 2009, 10:06 PM

This guy is an as*hole. He ripped that fine, sweet girl apart. He has the mental stability of quicksand. Their are millions of guys who would cut off several toes to date her.

Betty Jean from Florida March 4, 2009, 11:27 PM

Ashley from Florida said it best. I completely agree with her. Melissa was so good with Ty. Molly was too conceited.
