Jason Mesnick, 32, an account executive in estate and legacy planning, makes "Bachelor" history as the first-ever single dad to star in this highly rated romance series. Millions of viewers were stunned when DeAnna Pappas rejected Jason's proposal, as he dropped to one knee to profess his love in the dramatic season finale of "The Bachelorette." The handsome single father from Seattle was left brokenhearted, but his female fans, who experienced his emotional heartbreak with him, flocked to show their support. Hoping the "third time is the charm," Jason believes that the woman who will complete his family is one of the 25 lucky bachelorettes waiting to meet him.

The 15 remaining bachelorettes move into a luxurious villa in Malibu, and Jason pays an unannounced visit, attempting to catch the women off guard and find just the right one to complete his family. A sexy pool party breaks out and the fun begins, as one woman after another seeks to lure him away for a few precious minutes. Shannon invites him for a suntan lotion rubdown, and then throws ice cubes to break up his conversation with another woman on the balcony. Lauren takes him to a bedroom for an intimate chat about life and love. Once a rose arrives for Jason to offer to a lucky lady for the first one-on-one date, the battle between the women begins to escalate, but the woman who charms the Bachelor with her fun approach to life captures the prize. As the envious group looks on, he whisks her away to the Walt Disney Concert Hall for an unforgettable night -- a VIP tour of the hall, a champagne toast and a performance by R&B superstar ROBIN THICKE.

Jason orchestrates a touching reunion with Stephanie and her daughter, Sophia, and the surprises keep on coming as they all go to Legoland California for a day of fun.

Most of the ladies spend the 30 minutes they are allotted working hard to write an appealing tune for their guy, but one woman is so overwhelmed by the task at hand, she breaks down in tears. The women sing in the styles of opera, country and even a lullaby for Jason's son, Ty, to try and convince the Bachelor that he should choose them.

At the end of each evening, the Bachelor will present the bachelorette with an invitation to spend the night in a "fantasy suite." But will she accept?

8 The Women Tell All
It's an explosive reunion viewers won't want to miss, as the most memorable bachelorettes from this season -- including Jillian, Erica, Megan, Naomi, Natalie, Nikki, Shannon and Stephanie -- return to confront each other and Jason one last time on national television, to dish the dirt and tell their side of the story. Jason and Chris Harrison discuss the most dramatic moments of the season that happened both on and off the air, and Jason finally reveals what happened in that camping tent with Molly! Some of the bachelorettes will be put in the hot seat for a revealing question and answer session, including a devastated and emotional Jillian who reveals how truly in love she was with Jason and why she thought she was "the one." She has the opportunity to confront Jason for the first time since their trip to New Zealand about why he dealt her the "friend card."

In this gripping conclusion, Jason prepares to make one of the most difficult decisions of this life.

The bachelorettes must meet Jason's family -- his parents, two brothers and his sister-in-law -- and they confront both women with some serious questions.

I refuse to pay to watch my favorite show when it's a FREE local Network. This is absolutely ridiculous, how can you do this, take a free thing and charge out the yingyang for it. hope you fall short of making a killing for something that most can not afford. only giving a 1 star because you can not post without it.

too much back biting on the part of the contestants. kiss them and leave them. Who wants someone who just went to bed with someone else. every girl looks naked most of the time. I think it was a big deal to have a verging on the show. But I was saddened to see him fall off his pedestal for tv.

Here's a quick synopsis of Nick. This girl's awesome, it's so easy to do things with her my family loves her, she has so many great qualities, she's just what i need! And this other girl is really hard to deal with, and has a lot of issues, super insecure, lives in a completely different country, every time we hang out I'm arguing and never have true fun, it's basically conflict city and women I've chosen like her in the past has NEVER worked out and they even at least lived in the same country. I'm going to choose the one that has the most issues because the one I get along with, that my parents love, that I just have fun with all the time, that I could be myself, someone who'd have my back, be a strong support, can just relax and be a great wife, mom etc, I'm going to tell her all the wonderful things about her and then let her go because she just makes too much sense and who wants to do something that makes sense? Yup. That's basically the whole show. Waste. of. time. show. Never. Again. 😐
