Jason appeared on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever with now-wife Molly Malaney by his side for a chat with Chris Harrison. The episode had just finished reairing the brutal Season 13 "After the Final Rose" breakup between Jason and Melissa Rycroft followed by Jason confessing his love to Molly, and current Jason knew that viewers probably weren't too happy with him.
