After a shocking and controversial end to this season on "The Bachelor," are Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney still going strong?
"Molly and I are happy," Jason tells People.com.
Recently he flew to her hometown near Milwaukee, where he met her friends ("They all gave him the stamp of approval!" Molly says) and learned some new Midwest expressions, including "grilling out."
"I've learned new terminology," he says with a laugh about the common expression for barbecuing. "It's normal, right, to say 'grilling out'?" Molly replies with a smile.
Right now the two are still trying to find time to get to know one another despite the distance between them. "I'm headed out to Seattle in a couple of weeks," Molly says. "I'm excited to just spend some time with [Jason's son] Ty outside of the cameras and production."
