If you recall, Jason,33 famously proposed to Melissa, 26, on the Bachelor finale only to then dump her on the reunion show for Molly, 25.
Melissa has however previously said that she is “happy” for the two. The wedding ceremony will reportedly take place at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. Bachelor alums Jillian Harris, Ed Swiderski, Trista and Ryan Sutter are expected to be in attendance.
As for what the wedding will be like? Molly revealed, “We don’t want an hour-long ceremony and assigned seating and fancy food. I’d rather have people walk away saying, ‘That was the most fun, badass wedding I’d ever been to!”
ABC is set to air the wedding as a two-hour special, The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding, on March 8.
The Bachelor’sJake Pavelka has narrowed down his final choices of bachelorettes to the final 2, and according to our Bachelor poll, an overwhelming 81% of you are pulling for TenleyMolzahn to win Jake’s heart.
Another person who seems to be rooting for Tenley is someone all too familiar with the situation. Former BacheloretteJillian Harris reveals to UsWeekly that she is Team Tenley, while her fiance Ed Swiderski is pulling for Vienna.
UsWeeklyinterviewed both Jillian and Ed, during which they shared their thoughts on this season’s Bachelor, and discuss their openness to having a televised wedding.
Us: What are your thoughts on the women on this season’s Bachelor?
ES: We had a chance to meet most of the girls, and I still take them at face value, yes I’m biased because I went through the ringer with you guys, but the truth is I read that stuff and I’m like she’s [Vienna's] a normal person, she really is, yes she’s gone through some weird stuff, she had some fun and whatever she did, but she’s been pretty loyal to Jake as far as we know.
JH: The thing is everyone has a past, everyone was young and dumb at one point, everyone was vulnerable at one point, everyone has made mistakes, we all have our skeletons in the closet, and maybe she has more for whatever reason. If he picked her or if he picked any other girl, it doesn’t even — we hope that it will last, but in the grand scheme of things this is supposed to be fun and it’s supposed to be light-hearted and there’s so many more awful things in the world to stress out about. For me I just look at it and am like well she probably shouldn’t have done all the bikini shoots and maybe shouldn’t have signed up for the show but everybody is human and all those girls on the show deserve to find happiness. Not one of them is a vindictive awful bad person.
Us: Having been on the show and talked to Jake, who’s your preference? JH: I’ve always thought Tenley was a good person for [Jake].
ES: They come off as the perfect couple I think because they’re both religious, they’re both praying to end up together. But who knows. Maybe Vienna is a better person than she’s being portrayed. Ali I don’t know, there’s something about her that rubs me the wrong way. She was a bit too sassy for my liking. I think she was cute, a great-looking girl, great personality, intelligent but maybe she was a little too sassy. She left a little too easily I thought. Us: What advice would you give to Jake?
JH: It’s so hard because as much as you say hang on tight, don’t listen to what anyone says, lean on your friends and family, it’s hard.
ES: It’s got to be like one-on-one get through it together, otherwise you won’t. you can’t just say ignore it, it’ll go away, because it’s not going to go away. You have to learn how to deal with it and either improve your relationship or move on.
Former Bachelorette star Jillian Harrisand fianceEd Swiderskimade a special appearance onthe Bachelor early on this season as the two were set to publicly announce their wedding date. Things however changed when the couple asked ABC to remove their wedding date announcement from the episode.
Their reason back then was that they wanted more privacy. However in a new interview with RadarOnline, it seems the couple have decided to slow things down a bit.
“Well, our wedding plans are coming along slow,” Jillian revealed. Ed quickly chimed in: “We want to do it right.” He added, “I would say the size is not that important as well we need a location. We need a venue that supports the dates that we want.”
In a different interview with Inspiredbythis.com, Jillian reveals their wedding will likely be taking place next year, and no longer Fall 2010 as they had previously planned. When asked if she had a wedding date, Jillian said “no, not yet!” She added that they aren’t ready to commit to a date. “I’m pretty sure I know where I want to do it, what I want to wear, and who I want to come, but that’s really it.”
When asked about rumors she wanted Ed to propose to her again in private and away from the cameras by RadarOnline, she revealed, “I think that would be nice, but… I am not waiting to get married for that. But like, let’s just discuss it again non-televised…in private.”
Ed also joked about this Bachelorseason, mainly Ali leaving early for work, something he did to Jillian last season. “People just think they can come and go every time they please,” he said about Ali “pulling a Swiderski.” Added Jillian: “She might come back. You’ll see if Ali loves Jake as much as Ed loves me.”
Every time I read something about this couple, the first thoughts to race through my head is “She’s still with him?” and “They’re still together?” If you’re wondering why those thoughts, it has to do with the very widely publicized cheating scandal that plagued Ed last year. You can read all about that here. With that being said, it’s good to see them taking things slow and more power to them.
YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS TAKEN BY JILLIAN AND ED BELOW -
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, confirmed to RadarOnline that Jillian andEd will definitely tie the knot and have finally set their wedding date. Apparently, the two were suppose to announce their wedding date on Monday night’s premier episode of the Bachelor, but they later had a change of heart after deciding they wanted some privacy for their wedding.
ABC had teased weeks before the premier that Jillian and Ed would make a special announcement on the show. An ABC spokesperson confirms to RealityTVWorld that the announcement was indeed going to be a wedding date. “They were worried about how the announcement would have affected their personal life, so they decided to pull it.”
It is a bit surprising to see these two going the distance considering the fact that two women came out publicly last year with evidence claiming Ed had cheated on Jillian with both of them. Lindsay Johnson and Bethany Steffen claimed that Ed slept with both of them during his relationship and engagement with Jillian.
Jillian has always stood by her man by dismissing the claims of the other women. “It was strange the way they were attacked and kind of still are, but they are kind of like what the hell are you going to do? They are living their lives and they are doing good,” Harrison said of the couple.
The couple told GMAa few months ago that they expected to get married in Canada.
In less than a week,The Bachelorwill premiere on January 4th on ABC. And as usual the bachelor, Jake Palvelka is at a dilemma as he struggles over who to keep and who gets to go home first out of the 25 ladies.
Fortunately for Jake, during the season premier episode former Bachelorette Jillian Harris and her beauEd Swiderskicome to his rescue. Let’s not forget that Jillian and Ed are making history since they are one of the very few success stories to emerge from several years of ABCs The Bachelor and Bachelorettes shows. The couple appears on the premiere and offer advice to Jake .
If this isn’t the blind leading the blind, then I don’t know what is.
In less than three weeks, Jake Pavelka’sseason of the “The Bachelor” On the Wings of Love,” will premiere Monday, Jan 4th on ABC. The question on everyone’s mind is did Jake find love? In a recent interview, Jake talks being the new Bachelor, the 25 amazing bachelorettes, relationship with Wes Hayden and more.
In a previous interview, Jake promised a dramatic and steamy season. And we love drama! Overall, it seems like Jake had a great experience and may have found his soul mate even though he didn’t confirm or deny it.
Below are excerpts from Jake’s interview:
Did you find someone special on the show?
I don’t want to ruin the ending but I will say I stayed true to myself. From the very beginning, I went in and said very honestly if I find love, I’ll come out engaged. If I don’t find love and don’t have that feeling, then I won’t. I didn’t promise a ring at the end of this and I stayed true to myself and didn’t necessarily do what everybody wanted me to do.
What were the girls like?
All 25 women were absolutely amazing, very high caliber. All walks of life. Just incredible journeys. I’m sitting here just running different girls through my head and they were all amazing, really amazing.
What was your reaction when you were approached to be the next bachelor?
I did a back-flip on my front lawn. I was so excited. I was just really flattered and humbled to be considered and have it actually happen. I still can’t believe that all of this happened.
What made you decide to do the Bachelor? Was there any one deciding factor?
The one deciding factor was how well Jill and Ed were matched up. Casting and producers knew Ed really well; they knew and loved Jillian with a mad passion. The way it feels when you’re going through this journey is like your best friend that knows you setting you up with the perfect girl. In this case, it happens to be 25. You know how a lot of times in life, your best friend knows you but also knows this girl over here and they make a match and it ends up working. That’s exactly what I saw in Jill’s season and that was the determining factor.
Jillian very famously had some steamy scenes during her seasons that she said she had to apologize to her dad for. Are you in the same position to apologize to your parents for any steamy scenes?
In a normal dating relationship, would you get into a hot tub in a swimsuit with a girl? Yes. I’ve done that in past relationships. Why would I not do that now and give the relationship every chance I can? I don’t think I have anything to apologize for. I’m very confident with how I handled myself on the show.
Melissa Rycroftis officially a married woman. The 26-year-old Good Morning America correspondent was dumped on national TV earlier this year by The Bachelor winner – Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to her on the finale, and then later changed his mind. All that drama is now in the past for Melissa as she exchanged vows Saturday afternoon in Mexico with fellow Texan – Tye Strickland.
“Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he’s my partner forever. We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world,” Rycroft told In Touch Weekly. “I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!”
Melissa got married in a beautiful Alfred Angelo gown. Tony Dovolani, Melissa’s dance partner on Dancing With The Stars and the Bachelorette’sJillian Harris were on the guest list. Both Melissa and Tye dated on and off for a couple of years before finally reuniting earlier this year. We certainly wish them the best.
