    No he couldn't. In the beginning the Bachelors use to be real catches.... great guys with great jobs and a secure amount of money. They were able to buy their own rings and have great fantasy dates that they COULD pay for.

Are there many similiarities between the Movie and the Show??? If so, it's clear that this Show was scripted from day 1.
    I finally got an answer to my question about the comparisions between Jason's Show and the movie, "Sleepless In Seattle." See below:

This is why I have a very hard time believing that this wasn't a set-up from the very beginning. I still didn't get an answer to my question regarding the movie "Sleepless In Seattle." Did the "main" character choose one person (for whatever reason), and then changed their mind and chose someone else? Are there many similiarities between the Movie and the Show???

To make a long story short at the end she calls off her engagement to Walter because she can't stop thinking of Sam and she will regret it if she doesn't see what will happen. In the end she ends up with the single dad Sam and his son Jonah. I left a lot out but that's it in a nutshell.

    It's pretty clear that the Show was scripted/set-up. I wondered why Jason kept starring at both Melissa and Molly, like he was waiting for them to say something. Now I believe that Jason was waiting for his "clue" line from them.

    I saw an OTHER ring last night...

    Jason was holding it and looking at it.

    It was the ugly round one.
    I was wondering what it was doing in the footage since we knew he wouldn't propose to Melissa with that one.

    However, it was shown BEFORE the FRC last night.

    Maybe he does use that one to propose to Molly tonight....

    Melissa WAS wearing the ring when she came out, you can see it if you look closely. During her conversation with Jason at some point she took it off and had it in her lap.

Why would you want to pretend it is?? Help me here.
    No, no, no...nothing fake. If it's not there, it's not there...I just am tired of the manipulative editing to make it seem like it's there when it isn't. Yup, the hopeless romantic that would love the happy (and real) ending but realistic enough that I concede it may never happen.

    Can't help but hoping that someday it would happen though.

    I'm thinking he was going to use that one, but changed his mind???

    This is probably the case considering he changes his mind at the drop of a dime

    Ok, ok, so I lack some eloquence...

    Sorry I can't find it to give credit where credit is due, but someone made a post regarding the fact that a year ago Brad was the bad guy because of what he did and then along came Deanna and she vindicated Brad with her season and then Jason vindicates Deanna with this crap that he has pulled. The just of the post was a year from now someone will have come along that will have vindicated Jason.

    I don't know about anyone else, I don't want to see what they could come up that would vindicate Jason.........
