Jason Mesnick lost "The Bachelorette," but now he's "The Bachelor."


Though he wasn't picked in the finale of "The Bachelorette," Jason Mesnick isn't just giving love another shot -- he says he's found it.

Mesnick, ABC's newest "Bachelor," says he's engaged to one of the women who compete for his affection on the 13th season of the reality series, which premieres tonight.

The 32-year-old accountant has finished filming "The Bachelor," but can't reveal his pick until the finale, which will air this spring.

Mesnick says being pursued by 25 women made him empathetic to DeAnna Pappas, who chose snowboarder Jesse Csincsak over him during the "Bachelorette" season finale.

"It gives you a lot more respect for what she had to go through," Mesnick said.

Csincsak and Pappas, co-host of Lifetime's "Get Married," have since broken up.

This time around, "The Bachelor" has a new twist: There's a child in the mix -- Mesnick's 3-year-old son Tyler. Mesnick checked with Ty's pediatrician and a psychologist before exposing him to the show's unique situation and any separation involved.

"He's always in the forefront of my mind," Mesnick said.
