Two of The Bachelor franchise's success stories met up recently in Las Vegas. Jason and Molly Mesnick — who took the long, bumpy road toward two marriages after his unlucky Bachelor Season 13 — spent some time with the new couple on the block, Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez of The Bachelorette Season 6.
Way back when Ali was doing pre-season interviews for her season of The Bachelorette, she said she applied to be on Jake Pavelka's season of The Bachelor after watching Jason Mesnick on his season.
"The first season I ever saw of The Bachelor was Jason Mesnick's season," Ali said at the time. "And I loved it. I thought he was such a great guy. And I remember thinking to myself 'Oh, if I could only find a man like that.' And that’s when I applied for the show. I thought 'Why not? I can't lose.' I never thought in a million years I would be on it, never mind The Bachelorette! So, yeah, I watched Jason's season and then that's what got me hooked. I guess I fell in love with the idea of falling in love."
It's pretty safe to say Ali upgraded from Jason when she found Dimples. But thanks, Jason, for giving her the idea! At least someone didn't mind that you dumped Melissa Rycroft in favor of your current wife. Speaking of wives, Ali said she and Roberto almost got married in Vegas recently after watching Jason and Molly renew their vows during the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in Las Vegas. It didn't happen then, but we sure hope she and Roberto eventually tie the knot!
