DeAnna & Jesse: 'Bachelorette' Romance Over!
The love story is over for "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak -- and the heartbroken pro-snowboarder spills to "Extra" about the split.
Jesse reveals how Pappas ended things, saying, "We took time apart... She came back to Colorado and told me, 'I love you, but I'm not in love with you.' ...I picked her up from the airport and she told me while I was getting her bags."
Csincsak also admits that he was shocked and surprised that DeAnna released a statement about their broken engagement. "She told some of our business associates today first... I didn't know this had been released today," confesses Jesse. "We had agreed after she broke up with me... that we would put together a statement and have it released."
Despite Pappas calling it quits, Jesse admits that he's still in love with the brunette beauty. "I love that woman. She is an amazing person. I am willing to work through it. I love her... I love the way she made me feel. She made me feel like no other." When asked if he'll fight for her and the relationship, he said, "I don't want to fight for a lost cause. I just want her to be happy whether it's with or without me."
DeAnna told her fiancÚ that she wanted to move to Los Angeles -- and was not willing to go to counseling with him. Jesse explains, "DeAnna said, 'I'm not willing to try anymore.' She had a different idea. I can't argue with her feelings... She's the only one who knows how she feels." The snowboarder now wonders if their relationship was based on publicity, telling "Extra," "the only time she was touchy feely with me was around the cameras."
When asked if he would like to send a message to DeAnna via "Extra," Jesse tearfully said, "I guess I would say I'm sorry for whatever I did to make you not want to be with me."
Jesse and DeAnna are over -- and Csincsak admits that he's jealous of Jason Mesnick, who is looking for love as the next "Bachelor." "I really envy Jason's position right now... It's an amazing show... You could go and fall in love. I would love the opportunity to fall in love again."
