Eight years prior to Becca Kufrin parlayed her public Bachelor discarding into the plum Bachelorette gig, manufacturers attempted that relocation with Melissa. They even got Jason Mesnick—the man who had actually simply ended their engagement in front of ABC’s electronic cameras to work things out with runner-up Molly Malaney.
“That was their number one thing of doing the thing with Melissa,” Jason described to E! News of the program asking him to go through with the on-camera break up. “They wanted to deliver her as the Bachelorette to America. They had me call her!”
Yes, Jason telephoned his ex-fiancé to talk about being the next lead due to the fact that she was “mad” at manufacturers, according to the previous Bachelor. “In their mind, they’re like, ‘We gave you Molly, now can you give us Melissa?”
Melissa passed, ultimately going on to wed an old sweetheart, Tye Strickland, and the couple now have 3 kids, a child called Ava Grace, and 2 boys, Beckett and Cayson. But she did stay in the Bachelor household, acting as a co-host on the spinoff series Bachelor Pad.
