TV’s Betraying ‘Bachelor’ is Officially an ‘Old Maid’
Perhaps the play-on-words title doesn’t quite work, but nonetheless, it’s staying…
Whether you like them or not, Jason Mesnick (33) and Molly Malaney (25) are officially hitched, reported People.com. Saying their “I do’s” in a well ta-do ceremony fit for celeb reality’s finest, the world’s most controversial couple to come out of the The Bachelor celebrated their nuptials in front of family and friends during a ‘private’ ceremony this past February 27, 2010.
Sure to be a love that will stand the test of time (rolls eyes accordingly), Jason and Molly weren’t always the perfect couple. In fact, they weren’t a couple at all… ahhh, yes, the referenced controversy ensues. For those of you not familiar with The Bachelor, let me give you the nickel tour of what was one of television’s most epic love triangles. In this rendition, the part of “Boy” will be played by Jason, and the part of “Second Runner Up Girl” will be Molly.
Boy meets 25 Girls. 25 Girls compete for Boy’s love. Boy eliminates 24 Girls in hope to find his one, true love. Boys finds One True Love. Boy proposes to OTL (One True Love). Boy takes OTL to reunion show. Tells OTL she’s really not, and transfers said title to Second Runner Up Girl. SRUG accepts. Months later Boy proposes – again. This time to Revised OTL in New Zealand. They get married and live happily ever after… at least for now.
It’s your classic bait ‘n’ switch / whoops-sa-daisy scenario – surely devised by TV executives and acted out by “real” people. I mean, truly, this is a marketing dream come true for most, especially now that it has ended with wedding bells chiming loudly… for all to hear… on their station (ABC)… Monday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET).
While I can’t help but be bit a bit skeptical, the hope-full romantic in me – alas! – takes over, and I’m still secretly rooting for them… yep, I just can’t help myself. Plus, it would be for shame to have Molly’s $45,000 Monique Lhuillier gown and American Idol’s Jason Castro’s rendition of “Over the Rainbow” go to waste… not to mention the time released, white doves, fresh orchids, Neil Lane jewelry and Casablanca lillies!! Psssshhhh, and my papa thought I was an expensive bride – hehe!
So, cheers… to many, MANY years of happiness and love!
