jason-mollyMove over, Trista and Ryan. It looks like number 13 is lucky after all.

A year after he scandalized Bachelor and Bachelorette fans  by dumping his Final Rose, Melissa Rycroft, for first runner-up Molly Melaney on live TV, Bachelor No. 13 Jason Mesnick will wed Melaney in a two-hour television special on ABC March 8.

The series’ first Bachelorette, Trista Rehn (coincidentally the first runner-up for the affections of Bachelor No.1 Alex Michel) married her last man standing, Ryan Sutter, on Dec. 6, 2003, in a lavish ceremony broadcast a few days later on ABC to the delight of 17 million viewers.  The pair now have a 9-month-old daughter and two-year-old son.

The Mesnick-Melaney wedding special will reportedly feature former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants (no word if the recently married Rycroft will be among them) as wedding guests and also trail the future Mrs. Mesnick as she tries on dresses and plans her big day.
