Here comes the reality bride! People.com has reported that The Bachelor couple of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will say there I Do’s on national television, following in the footsteps of the only other successful couple the show has produced: Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter. ABC has confirmed that the wedding episode will air on March 8th, and will follow preparations such as dress fittings and even the bachelor/bachelorette parties.
More than 17.1 million viewers tuned in to the Rehn/Sutter marriage in 2002, and another astronomical number is predicated for this marriage, especially consider the unusual circumstances surrounding Mesnick’s choice. As you may remember, he originally chose Melissa Rycroft on the show’s finale, only to let her go at the Final Rose Ceremony and ask runner-up Molly to give him another chance.

We all remember Jason Mesnick from The Bachelor, who famously reversed his decision on the popular ABC show to dump his first choice, Melissa Rycroft, and ask Molly Malaney to take him back. The two have been together ever since, handling a long distance relationship from his hometown of Seattle and hers of Milwaukee. People first reported that Jason had popped the question to Molly while they were on a trip to New Zealand, which happened to be the setting where the last episodes of The Bachelor were filmed. The pair stayed at the luxurious lakeside Eichardt’s Private Hotel in Queenstown, and while having a picnic on the Shotover River, Jason slipped the diamond and platinum ring into Molly’s champagne glass. No wedding date has yet been set.
