First of all - I don't want to hear a what Deanna did. Her show is over and she and Jess do not need to reappear on my tv for any reason re: The Bachelor. I hated it everytime that Brad was charged over and over with being the cause of all Deanna's troubles. Enough. Go away. Don't appear this season AT ALL!
Ty himself is not the reason that Jason was chosen, the fact that Jason is a single dad looking for love on reality tv and willing to run through it a second time with the agreement his child can be used as a viewer hook - is why he has been chosen. Huge sympathy vote - and for now all reports say he is indeed a great guy. I hope Jason can force us to look at who he is rather than his single father status. There is nothing unique about being a single father with a cute kid.
Now Jason is being charge with doing the show for the same reasons that Jesse did. Ego, promotion, exposure ... and look how it turned out for Jesse - the girl was fine with all that, knew about it early on, and put a stamp of approval on it. I am betting the woman whom Jason chooses will do the ame. Everyone who is willing to be part of this venue has enough showmanship in them to risk the unknown results and be okay with it. Jason has gotten lots of advice. I think most people go on this show for the same reason they go bungy jumping
