DeAnna Pappas Speaks on The Bachelor

at . Comments

With her "shocking" return to The Bachelor just two weeks away, DeAnna Pappas spoke about why she rejected Jason Mesnick in favor of Jesse Csincsak on The Bachelorette last summer - then later dumped Csincsak.

"I believe we all make mistakes in our lives and learn from them ... it came down to two different people. Jason, who has it all together has everything a woman would want. And then there's Jesse, who kind of was a wild card," DeAnna told Extra.

"I felt like the wild card was going to work out. Someone to keep me on my toes. Eventually, it wasn't what I was attracted to anymore," she added.

Both Jason Mesnick and Jesse Csincsak attempted to propose to DeAnna Pappas during July's broadcast of The Bachelorette's fourth-season finale.

DeAnna Pappas rejected Mesnick before he could, then presented Jesse Csincsak (above) with the final rose. After months of wavering over a wedding location, Pappas announced in November she had broken up with Csincsak.

As for her reunion in New Zealand with Mesnick on The Bachelor, Pappas called it positive experience - for her and hopefully Bachelor viewers as well.

"I believe that it's going to resolve some issues for myself and possibly some viewers," she said.
