Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas with her newly betrothed love Jesse Csincsak by her side proclaimed that her second choice, Jason Mesnick, will make the "perfect catch."Pappas and Csincsak told the Yo on E! radio show that the new Bachelor would make a wonderful mate. As for the new crew of ladies who will vie for his attention, Pappas chimed in: "He needs... a woman who is down to earth and doesn't care about all the business going around, because Jason's normal."

"All I am missing, really, is someone to share it all with. And what this gives me is a chance to find that."But the ladies won't have to worry about and DeAnna baggage.

With the most recent installment of ABC's The Bachelorette ending in success, we've got to wonder: Why is it that The Bachelor seasons are 0-for-12 when it comes to resulting in marriage, and only 2-for-12 for couples who at least remained together? We decided to take a look back — at both shows — to see where they all are now.
Season 1: Alex Michel chose Amanda Marsh over Trista Rehn.Outcome: There was no proposal, and Alex and Amanda didn't last long at all.

Amid much secrecy and behind several layers of closed doors, DeAnna Pappas dropped by TVGuide.com on Monday not to merely preview The Bachelorette's finale, but to actually discuss, in detail, who she chose and why, as well as those she didn't choose, and why. What led her to pick Jesse? Does she share any viewers' concerns about his ability to give her what she needs? Did Jason's son factor into her decision? And who was harder for her to send home, Graham or Jeremy? Check out the video Q&A. Matt Mitovich
