Is This Our Final Rose?

May 30, 2014 - Kim Collette
Since 2002, (or for easy math 12ish years) we have watched the men and women of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette line up to receive their roses. And, even though through 18 seasons of The Bachelor and 9 seasons of The Bachelorette, there haven't been many love connections, there are still a few that give us hopeless romantics hope. So, in honor of the 10th season of The Bachelorette starting a couple of weeks ago, I thought now would be an appropriate time to take a look back at which couples have made it..... Let's start with the Bachelors: Season 1: Alex Michael and Amanda Marsh---broke up a year after the show Season 2: Aaron Buerge and Helene Eksterowicz---broke up 5 weeks after the finale aired Season 3: Andrew Firestone and Jen Schefft---broke up 7 months after the finale aired Season 4: Bob Guiney and Estella Gardinier---broke up one month after the finale aired Season 5: Jesse Palmer and Jessica Bowlin---broke up one month after the finale aired Season 6: Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado---broke up, but after several years of dating and even being engaged Season 7: Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice---broke up after a great run of 4 years together Season 8: Travis Stork and Sarah Stone---broke up a week after the finale aired Season 9: Prince Lorenzo Borghese and Jennifer Wilson---broke up 2 months after the finale aired Season 10: Andy Baldwin and Tessa Horst---broke up 3 months after the finale aired Season 11: Brad Womack and.....He didn't even choose one of the finalists Season 12: Matt Grant and Shayne Lamas---broke up 2 months after the finale aired Season 13: Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft--or is it Molly Malaney----Jason chose Melissa, but broke up with her when the after the final rose aired and chose to spend his life with the runner up Molly (and they are married and expanded their family with a little boy) Season 14: Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi--broke up 3 months after the finale aired Season 15: Brad Womack and Emily Maynard---broke up at least once while the show was airing but officially ended things a few months after Season 16: Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson---broke up a few months after the finale aired Season 17: Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici---still together and recently married! Season 18: Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell---still together and heading to the tv show "Couples Therapy" As for the ladies: Season 1: Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter---The First Bachelorette and still married! They recently renewed their vows! Season 2: Meredith Phillips and Ian McKee---broke up a year after the finale aired Season 3: Jen Scheftt and Jerry Farris--broke up on After the Final Rose Season 4: Deanna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak---engaged but broke up in 2008 Season 5: Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski---engaged but broke up a year after the finales Season 6: Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez---broke up in 2011 Season 7: Ashley Herbert and JP Rosenbaum---MARRIED! Season 8: Emily Maynard and Jef Holm---broke up in 2012 Season 9: Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried---still together and living together

As you can see, the Bachelorettes have a better success rate than the Bachelors....All in all, that is 5 couples that are still together. Hopefully, season 10 Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman has a successful story!

I know I will be watching!
