The Bachelorette 3 is the third season of ABC reality television series The Bachelorette. The show premiered on January 10, 2005, featuring Jennifer Schefft dating 25 men..

Schefft was selected and proposed to by Andrew Firestone in the third season of The Bachelor. For her season, Jen had the opportunity to assist in helping to cast the 25 bachelors from which she will choose.

However, when Jerry proposes, she replies, "I have 100% fallen for you but I've been here before and just want to make sure that we do it right. I want you to keep that, I want you to give it back to me if you feel the same way about me down the road that you do now. I just want to make sure that we do it right.

Reunited on a live stage, Jen rejects Jerry's proposal, telling him, "I think that you know I was so committed to this -- I hope that you know that -- and I really tried to make it work but I think we talked a lot and we saw each other and I think that we both came to the realization that we were better as friends."
