Were jason and molly dating
) while Chris Harrison hosted the event for home network ABC.
The couple waltzed to Molly's favorite song "Follow Through," sung by Gavin De Graw himself, while former Bachelor stars looked on -- Trista and Ryan Sutter, to name two.
One partygoer with a good sense of humor toasted Jason, saying, "Of all the women Jason’s proposed to, I think Molly’s the best." Jason, of course, proposed to Molly only after originally proposing to Melissa Rycroft on the season finale of the reality show.
After he and Melissa had been dating for a while, he broke the news to her that he'd started seeing Molly again -- on national television.
I'm doing all I can to make this work with Melissa but I can't control how I'm feeling -- the real, honest true feelings -- and I wish they weren't there." "Ya," Jason responded when Chris asked if he was saying that he was still in love with Molly, but added that he hadn't spoken with Molly since he proposed to Melissa. I fell in love with Melissa, I was engaged to Melissa, and all my attention and all my focus was with her," Jason said. I would do that, but I can't." "I have to [end it]," Jason told Chris.
"I can't live my life with any regrets and I would have always regretted not asking Molly what if?
"You're such a bastard," she muttered under her breath while Jason spoke.
"I came here to find someone to spend the rest of my life with," a somber Jason told Melissa.
When Rycroft was brought out, he broke up with her, and she returned the engagement ring.
Molly Malaney, the runner-up, was then brought out.
"And we're not right for each other." "Maybe I wasn't the right person to come and do all this because I didn't think there was any capacity in the world to fall for two people at the same time, but I do still have feelings for Molly," he explained to Melissa.
Visibly angry, Melissa said she couldn't believe Jason's decision to give up on their relationship after the first signs of trouble instead of trying to work on it.
