Is The Bachelor engaging if you already know how the season ends?
This season's rose distributor, Jason Mesnick, already spilled the beans to People magazine—he and his winner are betrothed.
"I found exactly what I was hoping for, what I was looking for," the show's first-ever single dad gushes. "I'm completely in love."
Mesnick, who has a 3-year-old son, hopes that the "third time is the charm." He lost at this game of love on the most recent season of The Bachelorette, when DeAnna Pappas chose Jesse Csincsak in the final rose ceremony. That pairing ended last month.
"I really did fall in love with DeAnna," Mesnick says. "I was shocked [when they split]. I thought they were going to make it."
For those keeping score at home, this season, which kicks off Jan. 5, will be the sixth (of 13) to end in a proposal. To date, no Bachelor coupling has walked down the aisle and only one of the four Bachelorette couples has.
