The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding: A Movieline IM Discussion

Last night's massive ABC special The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding united two troubadours of love. We had Jason Mesnick, who once valiantly tried to marry someone else, and his new bride Molly Malaney, who was still available for his call. Movieline's TVLine department had much to say about the epic, rain-drenched nuptials.

General Reactions

Louis: How many times did you tear up during the Bachelor wedding, Julie? Please round to the nearest hundred.

Julie: None, although Chris Harrison did almost get me after EACH commercial break when he'd remind us, "Guys, it's about to rain on the most important day of Jason and Molly's lives!!!!! Can you believe it?!?!?!" Also, I'd like to point out that the very first line of voice-over was a major turn-off for me: "Once upon a time, there was a handsome single father from Seattle looking for love. He dated 25 beautiful women in search of his soulmate."

Louis: That sounds like the beginning of Unsolved Mysteries. "And then he decided those 25 women needed to be set on fire."

Julie: I feel like there should have been a disclaimer on the bottom of the screen for the entire program: "Everyone in this program is a paid actor. What you are watching is not real."

Louis: Speaking of not real: I was tickled when Chris mentioned that this was "one of the most anticipated weddings in history." Albert and Victoria. Charles and Diana. Two serial daters who don't blink enough. History books, get ready.

  • Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such fantastic info being shared freely out there.
