This season's Bachelor, Jason Mesnick, is familiar to the millions of viewers who watched as his proposal was rejected in the finale of The Bachelorette. Brokenhearted, Jason's fans flocked to support him. Now this handsome single dad, the first in Bachelor history, stars in his own bid for true love, choosing from among 25 sexy bachelorettes.
Jason, 32, an account executive in estate and legacy planning, met 25 potential soul mates as he began his exciting search for true love. In the premiere episode, "1301," Jason prepared for the night of his life, as the 25 beautiful bachelorettes, who can think of nothing but him, arrived. Then Jason, in his first rose ceremony, eliminated ten of the 25 women, leaving 15 to compete for his affection and, in the end, his heart.
At the emotional and intense cocktail party, the women vie for Jason's attention - especially those who didn't get a date. The claws come out and tensions run high as two ladies clash about not getting enough time with the Bachelor. And to everyone's surprise, one bachelorette makes an outrageous exit in the middle of the party! At the nerve-wracking rose ceremony, Jason must decide which two women to send home, leaving 12 bachelorettes to stay in the race for his heart.
A lusty group date is all for a good cause, as Jason and eight of the bachelorettes raise money for breast cancer research for the "Keep-A-Breast" Foundation. Each woman makes her own "bust cast" to be auctioned for charity and finishes with a flourish, painting on their own personal touches on their casts. At the cocktail party afterwards, things get serious as one bachelorette shares with Jason that she had breast reduction surgery, another shows him pictures of her child, and another becomes visibly upset about the competition. Jason checks out the results of their artistic labors and offers a rose to the woman who impressed him the most
