Melissa Rycroft is a beloved reality TV staple, having shown up on everything from Dancing With The Stars to Melissa & Tye. But one area of Melissa reality TV history shed rather forget is her breakthrough: Bachelor Season 13.
Now that Jason Mesnicks season of the Bachelor has dropped on Netflix, fans are living in the nostalgia of his journey with Melissa.
Shockingly, that season is now a DECADE old, but as audience Netflix and chill with their favorite reality show, all of the old suitors and stories are buzzing again, much to season winner Melissas dismay. Yep, you heard us, right, Melissa is not happy to at all of Bachelor Nation is throwing her back under the microscope again.
To remind you, Melissa did in fact WIN Jason season, said yes to his proposal, only to be dumped LIVE on air for the runner up, Molly Maleny.
Oh my God, Im so embarrassed that my 25-year-old self is documented on TV, Rycroft told Us Weekly. I didnt watch it the first time around. And now its been what, 11 years? I dont really need to go back because its so far away.
Among other things, Rycroft is cringing at her fashion and contouring, making sure to let us know that shes up-ed her appearance game since her run on the show.
A notorious family gal, Rycroft added, you know whats funny is my daughter, shes eight, so she kind of knows a lot of the stuff that Ive done. [But] she has no clue about The Bachelor, and Im terrified of the day that shes going to find out. I just need it to be off Netflix by then. So then she has no access to it, and she cant see it. I do not want my daughter to have access to me in a hot tub with anybody. Especially anybody thats not her daddy.
Have you been watching the new season, and do you feel that Melissa should be as cringed out as she is? Let us know in the comments.
