Right off the heels of the story about DeAnna and Jesse's breakup ABC has announced that the thirteenth season of "The Bachelor" will debut January 5th, 2009 with a special two hour episode. Ironically, DeAnna's first rejected bachelor Jason Mesnick will star in the show and search for a potential love interest. This is the first time a "Bachelor" will be a dad, as Jason has a three year old son named Ty from a previous marriage. It's also the first season to air at 8pm. After the first week, the show will air 90 minute episodes for the remainder of the season.
Jesse must be jealous, huh?
