Tenley Molzahn (left) and mother Beth (right) travelled to Moose Jaw on Monday so she could host the Warriors' A Bachelor Evening at the Heritage Inn. Molzahn said she loves the Friendly City because of its people, who have been warm and inviting on both of her stops here.
“I really love the people. … I love feeling so welcomed here,” Molzahn told the Times-Herald Monday. “It’s fun to get to meet people who are so far away from where I live. This is just a different place,” she added. “(And) it’s a beautiful place.”
She has visited Moose Jaw twice, and both times with her mother Beth.
In their two visits, the pair said, they have been checking out everything the Friendly City has to offer — even taking a photo with the iconic Mac the Moose.
Molzahn rose to fame after appearing on the popular reality television series The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love. She later joined the cast of Bachelor Pad.
She was in Moose Jaw for the Warriors’ A Bachelor Evening — a ladies’ night at Heritage Inn that she hosted, and which featured a screening of the latest episode of The Bachelor. Many of the women attending the event also had a chance to personally meet and speak with Molzahn.
Molzahn said she finds watching new seasons of The Bachelor “really interesting” as a former contestant.
“I see how things are very much the same production-wise, and I can imagine how things are happening behind the scenes,” she said. “But every year, the ladies are very different. And sometimes, they can be frustrating, because I can see them conforming into what the producers ask for when my experience was so real.”
For her part, Molzahn said staying true to herself was essential to her Bachelor experience.
“It was very important to just be me. I really hadn’t imagined being there for more than the first night, and when I realized I was still there, I figured I had to show everyone who I am,” she said. “There was a reason I was there … I was there to meet someone who I could potentially fall in love with.
“I didn’t want him to fall in love with someone who I’m not,” she added.
When asked if she would come back to Moose Jaw a third time, she said, “absolutely.”
“If there is an opportunity and a reason to be here, definitely,” said Molzahn. “I really love Moose Jaw … it’s a fun place.”
