Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, the first “Bachelor” couple to ever walk down the aisle, will share a dramatic new chapter of their love story with millions of viewers when ABC televises their much anticipated wedding on “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding,” MONDAY, MARCH 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The couple, who announced their engagement in October, will let viewers in on all the exciting festivities – from Molly’s dress fitting for her dazzling custom-made gown to Jason and Molly planning the big day with their wedding planner and event designer. Then it’s on to their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the next stage of their romantic journey with a beautiful wedding ceremony in the perfect location.
Past “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” couples, stars and participants (to be announced at a later date) will be on the guest list to help the couple celebrate, along with their families and friends.
Jason and Molly have had a rocky road on their way to happily ever after, which makes this momentous event that much sweeter for them. Jason’s journey goes back more than a year, when he was one of the final two bachelors on DeAnna Pappas’ edition of “The Bachelorette.” Although ultimately rejected by DeAnna, he was the overwhelming fan favorite and the first ever single dad on “The Bachelor” to try his luck at finding love again. He proposed to Melissa Rycroft in the finale, only to find that he had a change of heart. In a heartbreaking and shocking “After the Final Rose” special, he broke up with Melissa – and hoped it was not too late to beg Molly to give him a second chance to win her love. Good thing he took the gamble – despite the intense scrutiny from fans and media, his risk was rewarded. The couple took slow and steady steps to build their relationship, including Molly’s building a bond with Jason’s son, Ty, as they saw their connection develop into a real, lasting union.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding” is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.
“The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding” will be available on ABC.com the day after airing on the network for users to watch online.
