For the first time in Idol history, 13 finalists were selected instead of 12, cementing Jasmine Murray, Megan Corkrey, Matt Giraud and Anoop Desai to the final list.

Bachelor Jason Mesnick Proposes to Melissa, Changes His Mind

It was a scandalous finale on last night's The Bachelor, when single dad Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa Rycroft during a romantic finale in New Zealand, then dumped her for runner-up Molly Malaney on the reunion show.

"After we got back into the real world, all of a sudden, we had less to talk about and I didn't know why," Mesnick explained to host Chris Harrison. "There was a part of me that wanted things to work out with Melissa so bad. But the other piece was I had these crazy feelings for Molly."

In the end, it seems that Mesnick got what he wanted. 

He ended it with an angry Melissa ("You are such a bastard," she said), and the swooned-over Molly was willing to give their relationship another go. ("We have a lot to talk about," she noted.)
