Jesse Csincsak: Don't Hate on Jason Mesnick

at . Comments

Fans undoubtedly remember Jesse Csincsak as Jason Mesnick's rival for the love and affection of DeAnna Pappas on ABC's The Bachelorette.

Now, Jesse weighs in on Jason's turn on The Bachelor this season. Here's what the pro snowboarder had to say in a recent interview ...

Q: First of all, you are in a new relationship?

Jesse Csincsak: Yes, I'm dating Holly Durst from the previous season of The Bachelor. I'm psyched. She's cute and outgoing and fun to be with.

Q: So, how did you guys get together?

Jesse Csincsak: We met at a party in California, and I was actually still in my previous relationship. Holly had some interest in going to grad school in Boulder, Colorado. Once I wasn't in a relationship anymore, I shot her a text message and said, “Hey, you know, if you still are looking for a tour of Boulder and the college, I'd love to go down there with you.” She ended up coming out and going snowboarding, and it's all history from there.

Q: I don't know if you've been reading the blogs, but The Bachelor spoilers about the end of this season are pretty huge ...

Jesse Csincsak: My view on that is, hey, no matter what the outcome is, as long as Jason finds his true love, for him and Ty, more power to him. You know, I don't care what he has to do to be in love. You can't hate on the guy.

Q: Let's talk about Jason Mesnick. You got to know him pretty well. Based on what you know if him, who do you think is the better match for him?

Jesse Csincsak: You know, it's tough. I would like to call it 50-50. Molly and Melissa both have qualities that I think really fit Jason well. From what I can see, I think Melissa's better with Ty, but maybe Molly might be better with Jason.

Q: You have been in the same shoes as Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft are right now on The Bachelor. Can you give some insight on their position?

Jesse Csincsak: When you're down to Final Two, you've got nothing to lose at that point. You've been through the ringer. Your heart's out there, you're already in love. The worst-case scenario is you're going to get your heart broken, but it's worth it to be with that person.

Q: You aren't with DeAnna Pappas anymore, but do you have any idea what is going to happen next week? All season, ABC has said she's coming back ...

Jesse Csincsak: They always lead you to believe something, you know? I think she's coming back and she's going to give some sort of advice.

Q: What advice would you give Jason Mesnick?

Jesse Csincsak: Just to be true to himself and to not compromise himself to go after he wants. It doesn't matter what the viewers think or what anybody else thinks. It's all about him and Ty. As long as he does that, he'll be happy.

The Bachelor Quotes

I would definitely prefer not to be the first Bachelor rejected at the end of all of this.


This is not another season of The Bachelorette. Or Paradise. This is actually The Bachelor. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
