Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney Are Engaged!

Jason Mesnick, who infamously reversed his decision after the finale of The Bachelor to choose Molly Malaney instead of original choice Melissa Rycroft, has popped the question once again, asking Malaney to marry him in New Zealand.
Last fall, as cameras rolled there, Mesnick sent Malaney home on the final episode of The Bachelor, choosing Rycroft instead. Jason then memorably announced during the After the Final Rose special that he had made a mistake, dumped Rycroft on national television, and embarked on a romance with Malaney.
Now the couple, who have been maintaining a long-distance relationship (he lives in Seattle, she lives in Milwaukee) have returned to the site of Jason's ill-fated first choice so "Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him," says a source close to the couple.
Last night, as part of a romantic weeklong trip in New Zealand, he did just that, proposing to Malaney, who giddily accepted.
