Executive producer weighs in on ‘The Bachelor’ drama

Just more than a week after ABC aired Jason Mesnick dumping  Melissa Rycroft, the woman he had proposed to on “The Bachelor,” the show’s creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss spoke with Time magazine about the season.

More than any other Bachelor in history, he was committed to love and to truly following his heart even though he knew he was going to have to go through hell to do it,” Fleiss told the magazine. “It’s really a romantic notion, that he sacrificed chunks of his popularity to at least try to be with the woman he loved.”

Rycroft has also turned her stint on “The Bachelor” into another opportunity to be on TV. She was a last minute addition to “Dancing With the Stars” after singer Jewel and TV host Nancy O’Dell had to back out of the competition because of injuries. Holly Madison, Playboy model and former Hugh Hefner girlfriend, is the other new dancer.
