Jason closes down Legoland California and treats one lady to a thrilling surprise, which leads to one of the most touching dates of the season.

This part also intrigued me - do you think they would bring Ty into one of the dates? The Legoland date would seem the most logical one, if they do, but maybe that would give the woman on that date an advantage over the others? (It's hard to imagine Jason having Legoland all to himself and not letting Ty share in the experience, though.)

"Touching" sounds like the child goes along doesn't it?

That's what I thought, too. I just don't know how much they will incorporate Ty into the season (at least until the end). It seems like Jason wouldn't have him meet too many of the women - just maybe the ones at the end. But I also can't see Jason having Ty miss out on a chance to have Legoland all to themselves. scratch

http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/jason-mesnick-dishes-about-his-upcoming-the-bachelor-journey-8174.php

Although The Bachelor's thirteenth-season premiere is more than two weeks away, Jason Mesnick said he decided to spill the beans about being engaged because it was something he didn't want to try and keep secret.

"How could I hold something like that back? When I'm as happy as I am and I feel as transparent as I am -- and there's only certain things obviously I can say with the show not even starting yet -- I just said this is me, and I'm so excited and so happy that I want everybody to know it," Mesnick told reporters during a Wednesday conference call.

"If people are going to ask me the same question over and over again, there's no way I could hold that back."

Mesnick, a 32-year-old divorced father from Seattle, WA who was rejected by DeAnna Pappas on this past summer's edition of The Bachelorette, recently revealed he got engaged on the reality dating series' thirteenth edition, which finished taping right before Thanksgiving.

"I have to say she's amazing. I can't say anything else," he told reporters.

Mesnick isn't the first The Bachelor star to gush about the woman he chooses, however he is trying to become the first to actually walk down the aisle with her. He added that having appeared as a suitor on The Bachelorette helped him come to the understanding that the show does work.

"I knew I fell in love with DeAnna; I knew it was possible," said Mesnick.

"I just knew that -- regardless of anyone who was watching this -- I just knew it was real. I mean a real love experience for me. I think it's one of those things that you've got to experience to really, truly know," he said. "If that didn't happen to me the first time, there's no way I would have done it before. I'm sure there's people that go on and have this experience but leave really early on and don't really get to know the full feeling of it."

In addition, Mesnick said that Pappas had a majority of the qualities he was looking for in a potential wife -- except for one.

"What I also learned through that experience is that the person that I need to be with has to have been through kind of their own experience in life to know that she's ready for a family," he explained to Reality TV World. "It's already [my son] Ty and I; I've already got a family."

Mesnick elaborated that Ty "already has a mother" and he's looking for the woman he selected via The Bachelor to fill a different role.

"I was thinking I'm not looking for a mom for Ty. I'm looking for somebody that could be a partner for me, that can be a mentor for him with more authority," said Mesnick.

"When I say a parent, I mean of course I want to have more kids. With that being said, I'm going to have more kids with the person that I've chosen -- we'll have a family, we'll have more kids -- and obviously my expectations with that are that we're going to be parents together."

Despite the large part that Ty plays in his life, Mesnick said his son actually has only a small on-screen role in The Bachelor.

"He plays a very small part in the show," he told reporters. "I think you'll see that early on, if you see him, it's him and I -- just him and I."

Still, Mesnick hinted that when Ty does make an appearance it will be significant.

"I've said this once before, I just knew there was no way I could truly fall in love with somebody unless they saw my son," he said.

Not surprisingly, Mesnick said it "wasn't an easy decision" for him to star in The Bachelor -- and his son was the main reason why.

"It was the same kind of question that went through my mind the first time going on The Bachelorette -- how would this impact Tyler," he said. "That was my first question, and I talked to a therapist and I talked to his pediatrician. They said, 'He's going to be fine and you're probably going to be more impacted by the fact that you're not going to see him as much as you typically do.' I just said I'm not going to go more than a week without seeing him. I just can't do that."

Mesnick said the producers were accommodating when it came to allowing him to spend time with his son.

"He was around when he needed to be and went home and saw his mom when he needed to," added Mesnick, who added his family also had some concerns about his own The Bachelor participation.

"They just don't want to see me hurt again, and that started with going through a divorce and then the public thing with DeAnna. But they trust me."

The Bachelor's thirteenth season, which premieres January 5, will begin with Mesnick moving into a Los Angeles bachelor pad and meeting his 25 suitors, which included four single mothers.

"Honestly it doesn't make a difference either way," Mesnick told reporters about the casting decision. "I think that I would hope people would view me as a person and not just as a single dad. So to me -- going into it -- I had no expectations really as to who was going to be there. But it didn't surprise me that there were single mothers. But it didn't make me think one way or the other, whether they were a mom or not."

Mesnick said he also had sympathy for the 24 women who ended up getting eliminated from the reality dating show.

"It has nothing to do with my experience on The Bachelorette necessarily, but I think I'm one of those people that no matter what I do in life I don't want to hurt anybody," he explained. "I think before I say anything and definitely the hardest thing I ever had to do was reject women. It didn't happen a lot in my regular life because I've had long-term relationships, but going through that [on The Bachelor] it was absolutely horrible having to do that."

Mesnick added that starring in The Bachelor was also more difficult than competing on The Bachelorette.

"It's way tougher being the bachelor -- way, way tougher," he said. "I wouldn't change that experience for the world and I'm actually glad that I was able to go through both of them because going through The Bachelorette, I learned a lot about myself. Going through The Bachelor, I was really able to reinforce myself and be proud for who I was."

Another thing Mesnick learned going through The Bachelor was that Pappas and The Bachelorette fourth-season winner Jesse Csincsak decided to call it quits on their engagement.

"When that all happened I was busy filming The Bachelor, so I don't know other than the fact that I thought they were going to make it," said Mesnick about the split.

"I saw them afterwards -- after [filming The Bachelorette] was done -- and it made me feel really good to see how in love they were. So when I heard that they were done, I was just completely shocked and sad for both of them because I know they both really, truly wanted it to work because they were in love."

While Mesnick had no problem trying to find love twice on television, he said that showing him walking down the aisle with his The Bachelor pick would be a different story entirely.

"I have not even thought about anything like that," answered Mesnick when asked about a TV wedding.

"My life is off of TV. I could not even imagine that happening."

Jason Mesnick Speaks on The Bachelor Experience


In preparation for the widely-anticipated January 5 premiere, Jason Mesnick spoke to the press today. Here's what he had to say about ...

... The decision to become The Bachelor:
"It wasn't an easy decision because my question was, 'How would this impact Tyler?' That was my first question. I talked to a therapist and a pediatrician and they said, 'He's going to be fine'. I just said, 'I'm not gonna go more than a week or so without seeing him.' I can't do that. The show was great and they gave me what I need. He was around when he needed to be and he was with his mom when he needed to."

... Single mothers being on the show this season:
"Honestly, it doesn't make a difference either way. I would hope people would view me as a person, not just as a single dad. It didn't surprise me that there would be single mothers but it didn't make me think one way or the other."


... His son Ty being part of The Bachelor:
"He plays a very small part on the show. You'll see that, early on, if you see him, it's him and I. Just him and I."

... Advice he gets from his son:
"He's 3 so he lives a life day to day and has a great time no matter what he's doing. I don't know about any advice by word, but his advice by living is, 'Let's just live today'. When you're with a little guy, you know it's all about today."

... Revealing his engagement:
"I just remember, in my opinion, how could I hold something like that back, when I'm as happy as I am? There's only certain things I can say with the show not even starting yet, but I just said to myself: 'This is me. I'm so excited right now and I'm so happy and I want everyone to know it.' There's no way I could hold that back."

... Trying to find love on reality TV a second time:
"I just knew it was real. A real love experience for me. It's something you have to experience to really, truly know. If that didn't happen to me the first time, there's no way I would do it [a second time]."

... The possibility of a TV wedding:
"I have not even thought about anything like that. My life is off of tv and I cannot even imagine that happening." web page

This was posted on another board:

Jason's season started filming around the 13th or 14th of October. He was nearly finished (HTDs or farther) when the news about D&J broke

New interview with the Seattle Times - today.

And an video interview link.

Thanks Mappy.



Q: How did the experience on the "Bachelor" compare to falling for DeAnna on "The Bachelorette"?

A: Everything happens for a reason. I wouldn't trade my experience with my ex-wife for anything; I wouldn't trade my experience with DeAnna for anything. But this, this is forever stuff. And it blows my experience on "The Bachelorette" away. DeAnna was right, and I can thank her for not picking me, because I found the right person for me.

Q: What does Ty think about your new fiancée?

A: Ty had a great time with both of them. It was just the last two. There's no way I wanted to introduce him to a group of 25 or 8 or 6. I knew I couldn't fully give myself to somebody in my heart until I saw him with them, saw how he interacted with them and how they interacted with them. It's something his mom and I talked about a lot.

hahaha... all the speculation is ticklin' my funny bone. I was snooping everywhere for spoilers the past few weeks and finally said guess I'll have to wait for March to know for sure. I think this speculation is one of the things that makes reality tv so much fun! Only a few more hours now.

The first night is when the girls get to vote out one of their own I think. I wonder if the one who looks like DeAnna is the one the girls target..especially after seeing the promo LOL
