Jillian Harris has clearly moved on as the star of the fifth season's The Bachelorette where she will supposedly find love among 30 suitors. However, most people still associate her as the "hot dog theory" girl who got dumped by Jason Mensick on the 13th season of The Bachelor. Thus, it's only natural for people to ask whether Jillian would take back Jason if asked for another chance.
When TV Guide posed this hypothetical scenario to the Canadian beauty, Jillian answered truthfully: She probably would!
"I hate to say this but I'm one of those people who forgives and forgets sometimes way too easy... [If] I thought that we were good match still and he asked for me back like for example what Molly did, I think [it's] a really sensitive subject but I think yeah, I've taken boyfriends back after they've hurt me so I probably would," Jillian told TV Guide.
But we all know that both Jillian and Jason are in a better place now ---the former Bachelor is still with runner-up Molly Malaney while Jillian is currently narrowing down her suitors on The Bachelorette
. So considering how everything worked out for the best, Jillian isn't likely to rekindle her romance with the former Bachelor.
"I think in hindsight I do not think Jason and I were a good fit. I think we'll always be friends. I think we have a tremendous amount of respect for each other but I do think he made the right choice in terms of a match," Jillian explained.
Meanwhile, Jillian now identifies with Jason more than ever as she now struggles with her choices on The Bachelorette.
"It's definitely been a roller coaster. It's way harder being the one calling the shots," she said. "[But] I'm not going to worry about my reputation. I'm just going to go with it."
