This bachelor is getting hitched.
Amherst native Jesse Csincsak, who has parlayed his ABC TV “Bachelorette” reality show appearance into other TV appearances and charitable fundraising, confirmed website reports that he plans to marry former “Bachelor” contestant Ann Lueders at the end of August.
Csincsak declined to give the exact date but said the couple will wed at Rumor Boutique Hotel in Las Vegas.
The couple has plenty in common, according to the 28-year-old, who continues to raise money and make appearances for his Breckenridge based JSAK Snowboarding Inc., a nonprofit organization that trains and equips Olympic snowboarding hopefuls.
“Ann loves to snowboard,” he said. “That’s one of the things that attracted me to her. She loves camping, Jeeping and just loves to be outside. We share the same interests.”
The Marion L. Steele High grad popped the question during a trip to South Bass Island in Put-in-Bay on Friday. They flew in a plane piloted by Dan Gross of Gross Plumbing and former county commissioner Dave Moore.
“It was Dan’s son, Doug, who got me into snowboarding,” Csincsak said. “And I was Dave Moore’s paperboy.”
Giving Lueders an impressive looking ring said to be worth $22,000, Csincsak asked her to be his wife on a stretch of South Bass Island beach.
In a www.radaronline.com video showing the trip, Lueders said yes, calling the whirlwind outing “the epitome of spontaneity.”
Lueders, 26, first met Csincsak on a cruise to Mexico in November that reunited a number of “Bachelor” contestants. Lueders appeared on the 13th season of the long-running reality series in which Jason Mesnick dumped winner Melissa Rycroft in the finale.
Mesnick was among the men who vied with Csincsak for the hand of Greek beauty Deanna Pappas in mid-2008 on “The Bachelorette,” which Csincsak won. The couple’s much-publicized relationship and presumed wedding fell apart later that year.
“She was just the brown-eyed girl who caught my eye,” Csincsak said. “We just hung out for a while to get to know each other before we started to officially date.” many months later…
A registered nurse, Lueders plans to continue in her profession, while Csincsak will continue work for his foundation and other causes. The couple plan to have a family, he said.
“We definitely want to have two kids,” Csincsak said. “We’ve already started with two Siberian Huskies.”
