Jason Mesnick, 32, is a handsome and single dad - the first in the history of The Bachelor. Tonight, he begins his own quest for true love and the pursuit of his ultimate soul mate, choosing from among 25 aspiring bachelorettes.
Millions of viewers were stunned when DeAnna Pappas rejected his proposal, as he dropped to one knee to profess his love in the season finale of The Bachelorette.
Jason Mesnick was left brokenhearted, wondering how he could have misjudged DeAnna's intentions, but his fans flocked to support him after the stunning dismissal.
Fans rushed to e-mail him in droves, as his story as a single father from Seattle with a three-year-old son, Ty - the apple of his eye - struck a chord with many. Tonight, he'll start over - and we know this journey ends with his engagement!
Jason, the middle son in a family of three boys, would like to start a new family this time around. His older brother, Sean, is married with children.
Jason Mesnick currently lives with his younger brother, Larry, and with Ty.
An account executive in estate and legacy planning, Mesnick says he is looking for a woman who has a real curiosity about the world, who loves life to the fullest and with whom he can share the passion in life's smallest moments.
Open and honest, the star of The Bachelor loves sports like swimming, golf, basketball and football. In fact, he used to be a golf pro at a local club. In his spare time, he takes guitar and dance lessons.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Jason Mesnick moved to Washington State at the age of eight. He has a B.A. in psychology at the University of Washington.
