Kimmel to Bachelor: “You’ve Been a Very Bad Boy”

Celebuzz / March 3, 2009

Jimmy Kimmel said what America is thinking about Bachelor Jason Mesnick.

“You’ve been a very bad boy haven’t you?” Kimmel asked when Mesnick appeared on the show last night immediately following his shocking Bachelor finale.

No one sums up the whole situation better than Kimmel. “Our next guest proposed on national television to the love of his life and then an hour later, dumped her to go out with the other love of his life.”

“He is a fickle pickle.”

Mesnick made Bachelor history when he dumped the woman he chose to be his wife (Melissa) to take back the runner-up (Molly).

Jason wanted to tell the audience that this was “his real life.”

“People can question that, or doubt that, but they’re real feelings,” he said, attempting to be sincere.

Mesnick explained that on the last day of shooting the show proper, he was “falling in love with two girls.”

The cad explained that after spending the six weeks in between the finale and the After The Rose special (which aired directly after the finale) with Melissa, the “chemisty was completely different. The relationship was completely different. How was I supposed to lead somebody on….if it really wasn’t there?”

Kimmel grew somewhat sympathetic to Mesnick’s explanation.

“You should have married her and lived with her for 40 years and then broke up,” he joked.

Mesnick also revealed that they were broken up before camera rolled for After The Rose. And that he was forced to dump her for the first time in person in front of the camera per his contract with ABC.

“I hated that,” he admitted. “If I could go back and take that pain away from her…I would.”

The fickle father says that he’s “really” with Molly now.

“Do you have the numbers of the other contestants in case your change your mind?,” Kimmel jabbed.

Good question!

Do you think Mesnick is a “bad boy” or do you accept his explanation.
