The Shocking Bachelor Finale

Are You Still Interested in The Bachelor?

Last night's season finale of The Bachelor made some big headlines this morning! Jason (the Bachelor) made his final choice proposing to Melissa and then during the After the Rose special six weeks later dumped her on air and tried to get together with the runner-up Molly instead. Fans all over were outraged that he could be so insensitive and hurt Melissa on TV.

There's another followup episode tonight, six weeks since Jason changed his mind, so we'll see how things are going now. Many of you have already proclaimed Jason as the worst bachelor in history, but the ratings were amazing. Tell us — are you still interested in the show?

I watched the first 3 seasons. I haven't watched since then but knew about the "surprise ending" before it happened..obviously they needed it to happen for the ratings, b/c I honestly didn't know it was still on the air either until recently.

If it weren't for this site, I would not have even known this show was STILL on the air.

I'm never watching again.I actually thought Jason was a nice guy but what he did to Melissa was really wrong.He deserves Molly though.Both seem boring and don't have a personality.

I would have watched if they'd put ANYone else in as the bachelor. I think it's great that this guy is such a devoted and loving father. However, he's still a wet blanket with absolutely ZERO personality. I mean, for cripes sake, there wasn't anyone worthy they could put on there? And then, when I heard DeAaaaaaaaaaahna showed up (the cow) that just clinched it. The two of them deserve each other. So, I will likely watch the bachelorette and the bachelor NEXT season, but no way was I watching THIS dolt.

Did you notice Melissa was wearing a silver filigree charm on her necklace... and did you know that Melissa is the name of a computer virus... oh, I noticed; yes I did. LOL

I used to be a fan of this show, then stopped watching for a couple years. This season made me want to watch again because Jason seemed so genuine and many of the girls did, too. I loved Melissa and I was really rooting for her. I have heard what happened, but haven't watched it yet for myself. I will watch it because I want to see it go down, but I will never watch another season of this sham of a show. ABC has made it painfully obvious that this whole show is a setup AND that they don't care who they hurt. Poor Melissa. Boycot this show.

It is soooo obvious it is scripted...but I still watch, I liek the drama but don't look at is as reality tv at all! And I feel worse for Molly, what kind of girl would take a man like that back! And she talked about never dating someone her parents didn't approve of - what kind of parents would approve of Jason after this?

I can't watch it...too fake. The idea of it is sickening to begin with. And this guy looks like a guy friend to take shoe shopping anyway.

Given that all of this info was leaked WEEKS ago I found the finale hilarious and yes, he's a sleeze, however it gets worse. Part of the leaked info contained things I haven't seen mentioned in awhile...1) From the get-go he was picking Molly, but to amp up ratings he was told to choose Melissa and then change his mind....2) Molly was aware of what was going to happen. She was seeing Jason on the off weeks that he wasn't seeing Melissa. All arranged by ABC. Again...this is just speculation provided by Reality Steve, but he's been correct about everything else. I did find Molly's reaction to hearing that Jason dumped Melissa to be completely fake so I tend to believe that she was in on the whole thing... Either way I suppose to some extent he was CONTRACTUALLY obligated to do things on camera, but MORALLY he's pretty corrupt and I'd hate to see what Ty things of his dad's actions when he's old enough to realize what occurred...

This was the first season of the bachelor I've watched, I got into it a couple weeks ago because I liked Jason so much....but I just ended up disappointed by him, boys are good at that. just kidding! kinda. Well Melissa is way too good for him and I hope she finds true happiness soon. Molly could tone down the eye makeup a bit...

I used to watch, but I was appalled at the finale. Jason is a horrible person - completely insensitive, makes me sick to my stomach, crybaby - a fickle jerk. How could someone change their mind so quickly without really even giving a relationship a true shot? Ugh. It was like a soap opera. I can't believe ABC let that air. I will not be watching again.

I've never watched the show, but did so last night with a friend. What an awful waste of time and energy. Jason is a jerk for breaking her heart on national television; I hope he ends up alone. Maybe ABC should start paying for everyone's therapy bills. The show is completely messed up - how could anyone expect to find true love when you are essentially dating a bunch of girls at once.

This poll is not constructed very well. This was the first season I watched and I'm so disgusted with Jason I don't know if I can watch it any more. I love Melissa. I even liked Jason but I think something is seriously wrong with that guy. I hope he ends up alone.

STILL? How about never... I really really dislike reality TV. The only "reality" shows I watch are DWTS and SYTYCD

I haven't watched in a while. But people at my school are talking about it a lot. So I kinda wanna watch now. He doesn't look as cute as the other bachelor's in the past.

This is the first bachelor season I've watched in a LONG time, and while I did enjoy the whole season last night KILLED IT for me! Melissa got it right when she called him a bastard..hate him now..

I love the show but the finale last night was just horrific. Jason showed no respect at all for Melissa by breaking up with her on TV. I'm sure it was all scripted by production but still. I was so uncomfortable watching the ATFR!

you need to have an "other" option. I wont watch the bachelor anymore, though I might check out the bachelorette. I thought that this season was great with the way the girls supported each other and that Jason really seemed to care. That all changed last night when we found out Jason true personality. What a jerk. Honestly, there are other ways to handle the situation in which he was placed and he did every thing possibly wrong. I thought that Melissa saying that he took things away from her was totally valid...getting engaged is supposed to be a once in a life time thing and he took that from her. He didn't seem like he was fighting for their relationship...6 weeks is barley any time at all. Though what he did was terrible, she is better off without him because he obviously is not the guy we all thought he was. His family must be embarrassed...they were so worried that he would get his heart broken, but instead he was not only deceitful, but he was just mean. And don't even get me started in on Molly...what girl would take a guy who just humiliated another woman and had already dumped her once? She isn't much brighter then he.
