Melissa wins Bachelor finale, gets dumped 6 weeks later for the runner-up

Fans of TV series The Bachelor are up in arms after a rather cruel twist.

Bachelor Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa Rycroft in Monday night’s season finale, as we predicted back in January. But a follow up special taped 6 weeks after the finale disclosed that Mesnick had a change of heart, and had dumped Rycroft for runner-up Molly Malaney

Mesnick said he hated himself for what he was doing, but that didn’t console Rycroft who said “Don’t call me and don’t talk to me. Leave me alone.” Maleny then agreed to give her relationship with Mesnick another go.

Fansites and forums nearly universally attacked Mesnick, calling him virtually everything under the sun.
