Brett Michaels, Jason Mesnick
The Bachelor's fellow reality dating star, Bret Michaels, has a few words of advice for the most-hated man in America.
"He definitely better hide his car because it's about to get keyed," said the Rock of Love star.
Just as Jason Mesnick dumped Melissa Rycroft after the Bachelor finale, Michaels was dumped in the first ROL season by Jess, the woman who had won his heart. She told him he made a mistake and they weren't right for each other.
And while burns suffered in front of the camera sting the worst, they're usually for the best, the Poison front-man believes.
"In a sick way, I think he did Melissa a favor," said Michaels. "It's better to know now than after ten years of a phony marriage. If someone isn't into me, I want them to tell me. I don't want to come home to find them trying to get the milkman out of the house before I get back."
While fans can't seem to wrap their heads around why Mesnick got down on one knee when he wasn't completely sold, Micheals can attest that the final decision isn't grueling.
"I know it sounds brutal, but he may have run out of time," said the rock star. "When the show was coming to an end, I wanted more time with Jess and Heather. I liked them both a lot. It sucked because it forced me to make a decision that night."
Though Michaels feels Mesnick deserves credit for coming clean, he also believes that the Bachelor could stand to learn some break-up etiquette.
"[Jason] went about it wrong way. I would have done it completely privately — and my show is only about dating. She thought she was getting married!" said Michaels. "I think he owes her a heart-felt apology."
