After the Final Rose

During the "After the Final Rose" special, aired immediately after the season finale, Jason Mesnick told Chris Harrison that he felt the chemistry with Melissa changed and that he would break up with her and then ask Molly to give him another chance. Jason explained to Melissa how he was feeling. After some arguing, she then gave him his ring back, asked him to leave her alone, and left. During Chris' interview with Molly, she admitted she still loved Jason. Jason told Molly that he broke up with Melissa and that he hadn't been able to stop thinking about her. He asked her if they could have another shot and he admitted that he still loved her. She agreed to "see where things go."

On the "After the Final Rose: Part Two" episode, which was taped six weeks after the "After the Final Rose: Part One" episode, Jason and Molly stated that "things were going really well" and that this had been "the happiest they had been."

In the other hand, host Chris Harrison that announced Jillian became the next bachelorette in the fifth season of The Bachelorette and has insisted that the outcome was not manipulated by show producers to increase ratings.
