Is The Bachelorette's Jason Mesnick ABC's Next Bachelor?
It’s safe to say that Jason Mesnick walked away from this season’s The Bachelorette broken hearted. He was convinced that he was meant to be with DeAnna Pappas, and credited her with teaching him that he could fall in love again. A single father, Mesnick was left by his ex-wife for another man, a move that caused him to close himself off emotionally. One would never know that watching The Bachelorette. Jason was open and honest from the beginning and always let DeAnna know how he was feeling. She took him all way to final two before turning down his proposal while millions of Americans watched in shock. DeAnna ultimately chosen Jesse Csincsak, a pro snowboarder and quite the opposite of Mesnick. Since the show, Jason has stated that he’s not sure he’s ready to date again but that doesn’t stop his female fans from trying to get a little attention from this eligible bachelor.

The Seattle Post Intelligencer repots that Jason Mesnick fans are popping up everywhere, nominating him to be the next star of ABC’s The Bachelor and offering to go out with him on a date. "I have been totally into him from the start of the show and I was praying DeAnna wouldn't pick him, so he could be set free for me to meet him,” one fan posted on the newspaper’s website.

"Jason ... there is a woman in Los Angeles, who would hop on a plane at the drop of a hat to meet him for a glass of wine in Kirkland today ... tomorrow ... this week,” another wrote.

Pappas and Csincsak have already thrown their support behind Mesnick for becoming the next Bachelor but he says he hasn’t been approached yet. That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t head back to reality TV, though. “If they asked me, it's something I would consider,” he said in a press conference call earlier this week.  If ABC chooses someone from this season of The Bachelorette to become the next Bachelor, it would seem that Mesnick and Jeremy Anderson would be the two frontrunners. ABC is set to air a new season of the reality dating show later this year.
