  1. Congratulations Jason!!! I wish I could see the look on her face. :D

  2. Yay! Congratulations!!! Wish him lots of happiness. Dreams do come true!

  3. Congrats! They look cute there. That seems romantic.

    Is he what? 21? Maybe it’s my impression, but most idols seem to get married at a early age.

  4. I remember Jason telling the AI Extra host, when he was on after his elimination, that they had not kept up the relationship due to them going to school in different states. So I am not sure if that means that they had dated before Idol. But then they decided to give it a shot when he was on the show. That is when she had given him a promise ring, which he has been wearing in his hair. I am so happy for them. Congrats, Jason and Mandy!:-D

    He turned 22 on March 25. I remember his age because my oldest son is now 22, which he turned in January, :-). Yes, several Idols seem to get married young. Phil Stacey married his wife, Kendra, when she was pretty much out of high school. He had by then completed a year of college. Brooke White, I believe, is also in her early 20’s, and she of course, was already married when on Idol. Kristy Lee will be getting married soon, if she is not already. She is also in her early 20s, I believe. Off-topic, but I keep misplacing the quotation marks. I am still trying to get the hang of them.

  6. Congrats to them! I can’t say I’m surprised since he definitely seems to be the settle down type. But I’m already tired of the stupid blog/fan headlines that he’s committing career suicide by getting engaged. Seriously? Are you supposed to stay single just to please your fans?

    Agreed. I believe that the more support you have, the better off you are when you take on a music career. Many are successful at it. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are one example, and I’m sure there many others that I cannot even remember now, lol. I know I mention Phil Stacey a lot, but he is my favorite Idol, and he has a very strong support system. He will be the first to say that he would not be where he is if it weren’t for his wife. And Kris Allen is another one who is married. I do not see it as career suicide at all.

  8. Aww, I’m so happy for Jason and Mandy. They make a very cute couple. I wish them joy and happiness.

  9. How sweet, I’m happy for him and her. They’ve been dating a long time and seem to know what they’re doing. I don’t think it stops fans from enjoying the music and having romantic daydreams if they want to, it never stopped them before : )

  10. Oh, that’s great! So happy for them. I’m glad he’s with someone he knew before fame. I had a nice, long conversation with her at Jason’s first post-idol concert in Tulsa. She was very sweet. She made a point of introducing herself and asking my name. She seemed to have no problem with the hundreds of girls in line for his attention and completely stayed out of the limelight. I think it’s a great match.

    Congrats Jason!

  11. aww, that’s so sweet. congrats to both of them. lucky, lucky mandy!

  12. Aww, cool that he proposed on Halloween! I wish them happiness! :-)

    Looking forward to the album.

  13. She also was an extra in the music video, but she’s basically just running around in the background with a bunch of other extras.

  14. Holy crap he makes a good-looking prince!!!! What a smart thing to do,ask her when it wouldn’t be weird to dress up like a prince!!!! I love the whole “Marry Me” on the pumpkin! I see he even shined his shoes for the occasion! haha
    What kind of idiot wouldn’t listen to someone’s music just because they are engaged???? Lot’s of artist were married! Elvis was married !!!!

  15. How cool! She’s a sorority sister of my niece, and the proposal took place at the home of one of my true loves, OU football. :)

  16. OMGosh, some of Jason’s fans are so rude! Look at some of the stuff they are tweeting directly to him…

    @jasoncastro’s news is the #theworst news of the day.

    I can’t believe @jasoncastro just decided to do that. I wanna vomit!

    @jasoncastro NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Why you couldn’t wait until your album is released? Don’t you know that it will affect your career?!!

    @jasoncastro Your engagement was wrong timing! You could have waited until your album is out! It won’t do anything good to your career!

    @jasoncastro Hello, your album isn’t out yet!!!! Why do something stupid b4 it’s out!!!!

    @jasoncastro I’m not surprised if Atlantic will drop you after your 1st album! Your single isn’t even doing well!!!

    @jasoncastro You’ll be lucky to sell 50k!!!!!

    @jasoncastro why are you engaged… asshole

    @jasoncastro since you never respond to me anyways, good luck with the engagement & future marriage…be sure you get a prenup!!!

    It’s really just 3-4 people saying negative things. The main culprit is this one tweeter called @shennch. She’s going on a major tirade. Check out her tweeter page for a good laugh…

  17. Those fans of Jason’s may be jealous that they are not the one he is marrying. A true fan, I feel, will be happy for their favorite. Plus, if they knew about him and Mandy before, they should have had an inkling that this could happen.

  18. Congrats to Jason and Mandy. Cute couple with a lot in common. I’m happy for them and happy that Jason’s dream is coming true.

    The out of control “fan”, shennch, is a teenager in Asia. Two of the other names that I recognize making negative comments are also teens.

    Most of the Twitter comments are positive with congrats being extended.

  19. Congrats to Jason!!!
    I couldn’t care less whether someone I’m a fan of is married or not although I think it helps them to be more stable in their life if they are!!
    Its the music that’s the most important thing & if some of Jason’s fans are just there for the “image” then they’re not fans worth having to be honest!!

  20. Aww, too cute. Congrats to Jason and Mandy. But wow, those twitter fans are scary… yikes.

  21. May the future hold nothing but happiness for Jason and Mandy! I hope he has much success with his career. Jason deserves the best!

  22. Very romantic gesture proposing while she is dressed as a princess. Getting down on one knee and everything. Congrats Jason and Mandy.

  23. Grats to Jason and Mandy! What a sweet and fun proposal.

    Jason, beware of overly hormonal teenage girls. They are the debil.

  24. … But I’m already tired of the stupid blog/fan headlines that he’s committing career suicide by getting engaged. Seriously? Are you supposed to stay single just to please your fans?

    Seeing as David Cook can’t even go out on a date w/o it freaking out some of his fans, I’m not too surprised by some of the reactions to Jason’s engagement.

    And concerning the tweets about becoming engaged before the album release – maybe he got tired of waiting. Hasn’t the album release been delayed a couple of times now?

    Congratulations to Jason and Mandy. Hope they have many wonderful years together.

  25. Congratulations Jason! I hope you and Many find happiness in your life together! Hey, here’s a thought! Have your friend David Archuleta sing Ave Maria for your wedding!

  26. Do they sing Ava Marie at weddings? I know the Wedding Song is very popular in church.

    Actually they do, especially in Catholic churches.
