Um, second time's a charm?

Flip-flopping Bachelor star Jason Mesnick—whose flaky ways single-handedly launched Melissa Rycroft's career and generated new interest in the ABC franchise—has finally, formally popped the question to his second-banana soul mate, Molly Malaney, Mesnick's rep confirms to E! News.

It was only a year ago that Mesnick opted to spend the rest of his life camera time with Rycroft, thus denying Malaney his final rose. But he quickly and publicly dumped the Dancing queen for the castoff. Mesnick attempted to make amends by proposing in New Zealand, the same place where he initially gave her the boot.

All's well that ends well.

And while the choice of proposal spot may not exactly bring back the most romantic memories for the couple, well, you don't argue with free airfare, folks!

The duo was flown to the idyllic nation as part of a promotion for Tourism NZ, arriving on an Air New Zealand special matchmaking singles' flight and being put up in Auckland and Queenstown to appear in further promotions before heading back home.

You can't put a price on true love. Especially when that price is comped.
