The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons takes us back to Jason Mesnick’s season!

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever is going down memory lane as we revisit Jason Mesnick’s infamous season. For those who watched Arie Luyendyk’s season and saw his last minute decision to break up with Becca Kufrin and go with runner-up Lauren Burnham will find Jason’s season a bit too familiar.

Technically, Arie pulled a Jason Mesnick, the man who kicked off the “I think I want to be with the person I just broke up with, not the one I proposed to” move. And with that, I’d like to get you hyped for the look back at Jason’s season on the next episode of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever.

Pulling a Mesnick

Jason Mesnick was the lead all the way back in The Bachelor Season 13 (feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it?). His season started off as any other did with your usual dose of Bachelor drama, fights, and heartbreak. But the true heartbreak didn’t come until the season came to an end and Jason found himself in a very unfortunate predicament.

Initially, Jason proposed to Melissa Rycroft, and broke up with Molly Malaney. But in the moments that followed, it became very clear to Jason that he had made a grave mistake. Prepare yourself to see the iconic balcony scene–it’s a doozy!

A brutal After the Final Rose special

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever will surely make us relive the moment Jason Mesnick decided to break things off with Melissa–on live television. I think we can credit the producers for making that happen.

Melissa learned from Jason that he wanted to be with Molly instead and had to endure a breakup on live television as her fiancé went off with his runner-up. It was brutal.

10 years later…

A decade has passed since that awful moment, and it seems like everyone is living out their happily ever after. Jason and Molly are still married with two kids (their daughter and Jason’s son from a previous marriage), and Melissa is married with three kids. So, yay for happy endings!

However, having to rewatch that ending is not going to be fun for anyone, and I’m sure that they will all be stopping by The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever to share what life has been like since that awkward breakup.

Jason Mesnick had no idea he’d start a trend in Bachelor Nation (we’re looking at you Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Peter Weber!).
