Jason wants Melissa back, tabloid says

There may be another twist to The Bachelor 13‘s saga: Jason Mesnick might want Melissa back after dumping her for Molly, which of course would mean he’s now dumping Molly.

Star Magazine says that’s what happened in a teaser for an upcoming story, which Seattlest reproduced:

Bachelor Jason Mesnick has changed his mind–again! After handing Melissa Rycroft the rose and then, in a shocking turnaround, dumping her for Molly Malaney, STAR has learned that he’s had another change of heart and wants Melissa back! ‘I made a mistake!’ he confessed to Melissa, who’s now dazzling fans on Dancing with the Stars. Will she take him back? We have the inside story!”

Even if that’s true, it’s unlikely Melissa would take him back, if only because she is now dating Ty Strickland, who People said commutes from Dallas to be in the Dancing with the Stars audience each week.
