In just a few short weeks, The Bachelor will return to ABC as Jason Mesnick meets 25 women who are looking to fall in love. This season marks the first time that a single dad has been named The Bachelor and ABC has included 4 single mothers in their group of women, hoping that he might form a strong connection with them early on. In a conference call held today, Jason said that he felt that it did not matter whether the woman he falls in love with is a mother or not, as long as she has a strong connection with his son. On the January 5th premiere, Jason will spend time getting to know the women before he is forced to eliminate 10 of them at his first rose ceremony. Here is a look at the 25 women that Jason will get to know better and, somewhere in that group, is the woman that he is currently engaged to!
