Local bachelor Jason Mesnick lost out to a snowboarding rival on Monday night's "The Bachelorette" show on ABC.

Mesnick, a single father from Kirkland, was one of two final contestants on the show. And Monday night, DeAnna Pappas took the two remaining bachelors to Georgia to meet her family.

But while Pappas' family seemed to like Mesnick, Pappas chose rival Jesse.

Pappas, 26, who became a fan favorite last season on "The Bachelor" after being rejected by Brad Womack, was selected to pick her dream man this season.

And for a while it looked like that might have been Mesnick. Competing against 24 other bachelors, the 32-year-old Eastside account executive made it as one of two final contestants. Earlier, the divorced father seemed to be at a disadvantage, especially since Pappas confessed she had never dated a single father before. Mesnick tried to turn that into his advantage by showing how loving and responsible he is with his son, Tyler, age 3.

At the show's end, though, Jason remarked, "The only for sure thing I have is my little boy."
