Jason Mesnick

Jason Mesnick came ever so close to winning the heart of DeAnna Pappas. Instead, he finished second on her season of The Bachelorette. This single father did endear himself to millions of women, however, and was considered a favorite to be an upcoming Bachelor from the get-go.

Well, he's going to get his chance in January 2009.

ABC announced that Jason Mesnick will star on the 13th season of the long-running reality show, giving this hunk a second chance at reality TV love which barely eluded him the previous time. We hope it works out this time for all involved!

Jason Mesnick is from Kirkland, Washington.
