"The Bachelorette's" DeAnna Pappas pops up on tonight's episode of "The Bachelor" and she's speaking for the first time since breaking it off with fiancé Jesse Csincsak.
The brunette beauty tells "Extra" the reason she called off her engagement. "I believe that we all make mistakes in life and we learn from them... it came down to two totally different people. Jason [Mesnick], who has it all together has everything a woman would want. And then there's Jesse, who kind of was like a wild card." Pappas admits, "For me, I felt like the wild card was going to work out. Someone to keep me on my toes. Eventually, it wasn't what I was attracted to anymore."
Jesse has moved on and he's currently dating "The Bachelor: London Calling" alum Holly Durst. Csinscak and Durst told "Extra" in January they were introduced by a mutual friend at a club. Pappas reveals, "Jesse and Holly met while we were seeing each other."
Pappas surprises the competition and her ex during tonight's episode of "The Bachelor." She says, "I believe that it's going to resolve some issues for myself and possibly some viewers." DeAnna shows up while Jason and the final three are on a romantic vacation in New Zealand.
"The Bachelor" Jason Mesnick reveals he was shocked by DeAnna's surprise visit. "Of course it threw me off. I fell in love with her and I went through my healing process. And she's the last person I expected to see, especially in New Zealand."

Is Jesse Csincsak ready to talk about the end of his engagement with "The Bachelorette" star DeAnna Pappas? The former lovebirds gave rock steady relationship advice on "Extra" last month.
And he opened up to "Extra," saying the exes text message each other "every now and again," adding, "But we're trying to give each other our space." The relationship is over, but there are no hard feelings. "We both went on the show with the best of intentions. We did fall in love on the show, but things didn't work out. I wish her nothing but the best. She's a great person. I hope to see her do well. I don't regret anything with her."
The pro snowboarder is "taking things one day at a time." Jesse has been extremely open about the breakup, posting info on his MySpace page and on YouTube. "All the fans have been super supportive. I've gotten thousands of emails. Everybody basically has my back." Fresh on the market, Csincsak tells "Extra" what he is looking for in a girl. "I want a down-to-earth, honest outgoing girl that loves to be outside and snowboard."
Jesse would hop back into the world of reality TV to find the right girl, "If it was offered to me, I definitely would have to consider it for sure." He continued, "I'd want to put them [the girls] in my element... to be out in Colorado... doing the things I like to do... if I could meet a girl that is into doing all those things and is honest and outgoing, I think I could find true love again."
DeAnna dumped Jesse by saying, "I love you but I'm not in love with you." Should the exes remain friends?
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 fiancé 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."
