Jason Mesnick has already started his quest for love in the 13th season of The Bachelor, which premiered on January 5.  After getting his heart broken by DeAnna Pappas in the second season finale of ABC's The Bachelorette this past summer, the 32-year-old a single father from Seattle tries to narrow down his search for love from 25 women to the one that will capture his heart.  Hoping to lend an additional helping hand, soap stars Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms will treat Jason and six women to a behind-the-scenes look at long-running drama General Hospital.

As Jason and the ladies visit the Los Angeles-based General Hospital set, Anderson (Damien Spinelli) and Storms (Maxie Jones) will be coaching the women in the fine art of screen kissing.  The women will also get the chance to act out their secret fantasy with Jason.

Aside from the General Hospital set visit, Jason's search for love includes a whirlwind travel adventure where he brings one woman to the Walt Disney Hall for a private performance by R&B superstar Robin Thicke, while taking another for a ride over the Los Angeles area courtesy of the famous Goodyear blimp.  Other dates consist of shutting down Legoland California, as Jason treats one lady to a thrilling surprise.  Another finds herself wearing a million dollars worth of jewelry, just as Mesnick takes her away on a private getaway to Las Vegas for a breathtaking helicopter ride over Red Rock Canyon, with a cozy dinner and a performance by pop singer Kate Voegele.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, The Bachelor is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television, a division of Time Warner's Warner Bros. Studios.

The upcoming General Hospital-themed episode of The Bachelor is slated to air on Monday, January 26 at 8pm on ABC.
