I believe they were chosen with Melissa in mind, because back in December or very early January TPTB knew that Jason wanted to dump Melissa for Molly. (They knew before the season premiere ad aired, that is why they showed us clips from the FRC that identified Melissa as F1.) I think they were hoping they could talk Melissa into being the bachelorette.Originally Posted by CaFan;3444340;
I don't know how serious they were about making Molly the bachelorette, they were probably discussing who it could be after the finale wrapped in November, I am sure Molly's name was in the mix back then.
Someone reminded us that Bonnie Hunt asked Molly if she was ever asked to be the bachelorette and she said no, but I take everything these contestants say with a grain of salt. They are always fibbing in interviews to present the story in a way that pleases TPTB.
