{ Meet... Melissa P. }

Our next Bachelorette hopeful, Melissa, lives in Washington DC and works as an Analyst with the Department of Justice.  She loves working for the government and living around military families in our nation's capitol.  Melissa has a gazillion talents, and people love her baked goods and tell her she gives awesome massages.  One of her less obvious talents is in her words "a knack for being able to toss small objects (paperclips, small candies, etc.) into male dress shirt front pockets.  I know it sounds strange, but every time someone (guys are the only ones would would ever challenge and/or doubt my skills) thinks I can't do it, they end up completely shocked.  After that typically comes the "I bet you can't do it again" and I do it again.  Needless to say, I don't ever sit around the house practicing this skill on my nights/weekends...I guess it's just something I picked up!



When asked why Melissa wants to date Kent she replied, "I want to date Kent because he is ready to find someone to share his life with, as am I. I'm looking for someone to challenge me and vice versa.  Someone who can put up with my crap and give it to me straight :) Kent seems to be a kind hearted guy who would do anything for his family, who loves what he does, exemplifies his priesthood calling and finds amusement in life.  These are definitely qualities I'm looking for. I feel we would be a good match and make each other laugh, every day."  





Tell us why you think Melissa and Kent are a match made in heaven...

Melissa just seems real! I think she would be a lot of fun for Kent and they would have common interests from the sounds of things... I vote Melissa! :)

Melissa would be an AMAZING bachelorette!!! Kent would have so much fun with her. She is pretty much the full package- smart, fun, spiritual, and beautiful!!! Plus she drives a sweet car, makes amazing chocolate chip pancakes, and loves America!

She's smart, quick, talented, loves to travel, slightly mysterious (I once heard a man refer to her as "a female version of Jack Bauer"..), and loves the Gospel! She has a great sense of humor and is so fun to be around.

Melissa is one of the most genuine and sincere girls I know. She has such an immense amount of passion for everything in her life - her family, her job, her faith, and yes, shopping. Kent would be extremely lucky to have a chance to date Melissa, unless funny, spontaneous, smart, beautiful girls aren't his thing!

Melissa is one of the greatest girls I know! She is fun, SMART, will challenge him, spiritual, etc, etc, etc! The first comment about hoe she seems real is right on the nose. Mel knows who she is - a real catch!

Kristi said...

Melissa has one of the quickest wits of any girl I've ever met! She's incredibly ambitious and isn't afraid to go after what she wants. Some men may be intimidated by an independent woman like her(and, truth be told, many men HAVE been intimidated by Melissa), but those who stick it out come to realize that she has all the trappings of a FANTASTIC wife and mother.

What makes Melissa sexy--BESIDES THE OBVIOUS--is her confidence. She's a great example of what a modern Mormon woman should be, and would most definitely make for a multi-faceted, entertaining bachelorette!

Devon said...

Amen to everything that has been said on here; such a down-to-earth, fun, genuine, kind-hearted, beautiful, amazing girl. Mel is absolutely the realest of all deals.

B said...

We're rooting for Melissa. If Tuttle wants a great girl, he needs someone as ambitious, smart, and attractive as Melissa.

rachel! said...

I forgot to add that she is also totally drama free. She's not jealous or catty and really gets along with everyone. It's a rare occasion for this lovely lady to not be in a light hearted mood. Such a catch!!!

Jcplowman said...

You are amazing Melissa. Look at you girl! You've got our vote (and Sierra, Celeste, and Curtis').

Christine-Chioma said...

Melissa is great! She's smart, funny, and kind. Kent would be lucky to have her!

Grace said...

Melissa is A-wait for it.... MAZE-wait for it.... ING! As her former roommate I can tell you that this girl is easy to live with, has a great shoe collection, a great sense of style, and I don't think anything scares her! I wish I was as spontaneous and ballsy (am I allowed to say that?) as Mel! TMB would indeed be a lucky (and SMART) guy to even go on ONE date with Mel!

Brenna said...

Melissa DEFINITELY has my vote. She's one of my best friends. She has a great since of humor, is easy going, down to earth, and someone that knows she wants! I respect her and look up to her. I go to her for advice on anything from clothes to spiritual things. She's always had my back and been there for me even when she moved accross the country! (But we still find time to travel to cancun together) ;) She is someone you can always feel comfortable around. PLUS she's a California girl...WIN!

Wait. Why don't they mention her age like all of the other bachelorettes? Being 27 is awesome! (I believe that is how old Kent is?)

Living in DC! How cool is that?

Janelle said...

Living in DC--cool!
