Would You Leave Your Child to Be on a Reality Show?

We met this season's lovable Bachelor, Jason Mesnick, last year on The Bachelorette and quickly learned the Seattle divorced dad is raising his son Ty all by his lonesome. Jason's devotion to Ty was central to almost every conversation he had on the show so it comes as no surprise that the lil guy will play a role (and make appearances) during his father's quest for a wife.

While I understand the appeal of Jason's sporty and sweet dad persona, I was shocked to learn how many of the female contestants on the show have young children at home. The fact that Jason is open to finding a family for Ty and that producers are willing to cast mothers is applaud-worthy, but is the chance at love worth leaving your child?
