Jason and Molly Mesnick are one of the Bachelor franchise’s greatest success stories, so when they talk about, well, basically anything, we sit up and listen. These days, like pretty much everyone else, they’re talking about who the next man to hold the title of Bachelor should be. So who do they think is worthy of the all-important title of Head Rose Giver?


Their opinions couldn’t be more different from each other. Molly, who was once a staunch supporter of Andi Dorfman cast-off Chris Soules, has changed her tune and is now firmly #TeamArie — that’s Arie Luyendyk, Jr. of Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette, for those of you not as obsessed with the Bachelor Nation family tree as we are.

We’ve gotta say we’re pretty shocked by the change of heart, since she previously declared she would move to Iowa for the gentleman farmer. So what caused such a drastic flip-flop? Apparently she’s a sucker for all things mud covered, because Arie’s recent appearance on Wipeout: The Bachelor vs The Bachelorette edition was all it took for the race car driver to win Molly over. In her podcast with hubby Jason she said “he’s just a nice guy.”

Jason, on the other hand, says Arie “isn’t relevant.” Instead, he’s casting his vote for a guy who is currently owning our Monday night TV time: Bachelor in Paradise’s Graham Bunn. As Jason notes, G.Bunn has been on every other Bachelor franchise show — including The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, and now BiP — why not make him the first guy in franchise history to appear on all four shows? We kind of like the idea — It’ll be like the EGOT of Bachelor Nation!
