Former Bachelor Jason Mesnick to Marry on ABC

America loves a fairy-tale ending, and ABC aims to deliver on March 8, when former Bachelor Jason Mesnick will marry Molly Malaney in a two-hour broadcast that includes the bride's dress fitting, wedding planning, and the ceremony, according to the Hollywood Reporter. ABC's last Bachelor wedding was huge hit; over 17 million people tuned in to to watch Trista and Ryan Sutter walk down the aisle in 2002 (and those two crazy kids continue to grace the cover of People every time they pop out another baby), so ABC has reason to believe that this wedding extravaganza will also deliver. Jason and Molly's engagement story comes with some drama, if you remember — Mesnick had originally proposed to Melissa Rycroft on the show's finale, only to dump her during the postshow six weeks later. ABC also promises to bring back some former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants as wedding guests, and here's hoping that Melissa shows up, The Graduate–style, to win back Jason's heart. Now that would make for good TV. Jaaaasssssssoooooooonnnnn!
