"I followed my heart, I followed my head, and even though I had to hurt people along the way, I feel I did it with integrity," Jason said.

Jason was joined on the TV special by Molly.

The couple, who kissed on Tuesday night's special say they have been seeing each other since Jason chose Molly over Melissa six weeks ago (as seen on the episode that aired Monday night), and Molly revealed she is moving to Jason's hometown of Seattle.

"Things are going well. I don't regret the way things came to be," Molly said.

"She's great for me and great for my son Ty," Jason said, adding "I hope everybody can look and see that we followed our hearts."
