After 21 seasons of The Bachelor, 13 seasons of The Bachelorette, four seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, and three seasons of Bachelor Pad, as well as the latest Bachelor Winter Games season, it's a little shocking to know that only 18 of those couples are still together. Some never made it to After the Final Rose, some dated for a few months, and some... well, some got dumped on national television (sorry, Becca!) Here, read about the fates of all the Bachelor (and the various Bachelor iterations) couples from the first seasons to the most recent.
The first season of The Bachelor didn't end with a proposal, but it did end with Michel and Marsh in a relationship. The pair dated for nearly a year before Marsh broke up with him for keeping in touch with runner-up (and someone you'll see on this list in a bit) Trista Rehn. Marsh married her childhood friend, Jay Caldwell, and they have a daughter named Chloe.
Buerge and Eksterowicz broke up after several weeks—according to Eksterowicz, she was "dumped at a Starbucks." Buerge married Angye McIntosh in 2009 and they have a daughter named Aven, and Eksterowicz married tech consultant Andrew Goodman in 2013 and they have a son together and live in New Jersey.
Rehn and Sutter were married on national television on December 6, 2003, and are still together after 15 years. They have two children, Max (born in 2007), and Blakesley (born in 2009). Truly #couplegoals.
Schefft and Firestone broke up after several months together, but they remained friends. He married actress Ivana Bozilovic, and they have three children, while Schefft went on to become The Bachelorette. We'll get to her in a bit.
Another case where the show didn't end with a proposal. Guiney offered Gardinier a promise ring with an agreement to date after the show ended, but they wound up breaking up after the show aired. Guiney later married Rebecca Budig, but they split in 2010. In 2016, he later married Jessica Canyon. Gardinier appears to be single, working as a fitness instructor in California.
McKee and Phillips broke up a year after the finale of their season aired in 2005. Phillips married her high school boyfriend in 2011; McKee seems to be single.
Palmer didn't propose to Bowlin, much like Bob Guiney and Alex Michel. The pair dated, but broke up shortly after the show aired. Bowlin married Omar Rawi and has two children, and Palmer got engaged to his girlfriend, model Emely Fardo, in July 2019.
Pro Bass fisherman Velvick and Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader Delgado dated for five years before they called off their engagement. Velvick married a hospice owner named Belinda and they have a child together, while Delgado, who has had a few run-ins with the law, married her husband in Cuba.
Technically, Schefft and Ferris broke up on the live After the Final Rose special. Schefft turned down Ferris's proposal, saying the chemistry wasn't there. She got married in 2009, and has two daughters, while Ferris is also married with a son.
O'Connell didn't propose in the end, but he and Brice dated on-and-off from 2005 to 2010. Brice has three children with Brandt Calver, and O'Connell married Playboy Playmate Anna Sophia Berglund in 2018.
Stork and Stone broke up shortly after the finale aired. Stork married pediatrician Charlotte Brown in 2012, but they divorced in 2015; Stork married Parris Stork in 2019. You can also see him on The Doctors. Stone married Brock Smith, and they have three daughters together.
Borghese wound up not proposing to Wilson at the show's finale, but they entered into a relationship and dated for several months. Borghese went on to date Sadie Murray, the runner-up from his season of The Bachelor for a few months before breaking it off with her in March of 2007. Wilson is now married to Lee Gerschultz.
Baldwin did propose to Horst, but they wound up calling off their engagement a month after the finale of their season aired, yet continued to date until September 2007. Horst is now married to Tom Pickard and they have a son together.
Grant proposed to Lamas, but they wound up ending things in July 2008 because they felt their lives were going in different directions. Lamas married Nik Richie, founder of gossip website TheDirty.com, and they have two children together. Grant is now married to Rebecca Moring.
Pappas was the first Bachelorette following a three-year long hiatus for the franchise. She accepted a proposal from Csincsak in the show's season finale. They had set a wedding date for May 9, 2009, but broke up in November 2008. According to Csincsak, Pappas said, "I love you, but I'm not in love with you." Ouch. Pappas married Stephen Stagliano, twin brother of Bachelorette season 5 contestant Michael Stagliano, and they have two children. Csincsak also married within the Bachelor family, settling down with Bachelor season 13 contestant Ann Lueders after meeting at a reunion show. They have three children together.
In one of the most dramatic moments in Bachelor history, Jason Mesnick called off his engagement to Melissa Rycroft after he changed his mind and decided to pursue a relationship with runner-up Molly Malaney. Don't forget—he also did this live on national television. It all worked out, though: Mesnick and Malaney got married in 2010 with an ABC special, and have two children together. Rycroft won the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars, married Tye Strickland, and has three children.
Harris, the first Canadian bachelorette, accepted Swiderski's proposal in the season finale, but they broke up a year after their finale aired. Swiderski is married to Natalie Bomke, while Harris has two children with fiancé Justin Pasutto.
Noted for being one of the most messy and public breakups in Bachelor history, Pavelka and Girardi ended their relationship in September 2010. Pavelka remains single and has been seen on many a reality television show, while Girardi is engaged to marry Todd Allen, a race car driver.
Fedotowsky accepted Martinez's proposal and offered him her final rose, but they wound up breaking up a year after their season aired. Fedotowsky married television and radio host Kevin Manno in 2017, and they have two children.
Brad Womack was The Bachelor twice, but only proposed once, to future Bachelorette Emily Maynard. (Spoiler alert!) They broke up while their season was airing, but got back together after the season's finale. They eventually called it quits for real in May 2011. Womack has no social media accounts, so there's no clue of what he's up to. We'll get to Maynard in a moment.
These two made it all the way down the aisle! Hebert and Rosenbaum married on December 1, 2012, and their wedding aired as a TV special that year. They have two children, Fordham (born 2014) and Essex (born 2016).
These two met on Bachelor Pad 2, and got engaged after only knowing each other for a couple of months. Julian had appeared on Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette, while Durst was a contestant on Matt Grant’s season of The Bachelor. The duo married in June 2012, and they welcomed their first child through adoption in 2019.
The rollercoaster that was Ben-and-Courtney was one for the ages: They broke up while the show was still airing, then got back together and got re-engaged, before ultimately breaking up and calling off their wedding. Robertson wrote a book about her time on The Bachelor called "I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends." She's currently dating Humberto Preciado; Flajnik may still be single.
Maynard and "Jef with one f" got engaged at the end of her season of The Bachelorette. But after a nasty and public cheating scandal, Maynard and Holm broke up in October 2012. Maynard married Tyler Johnson in June 2014, and they have three children. Holm is still single, the last update we heard on his love life was that he was dating public relations executive Hayley Enzor in February 2018.
Underdog Guidici stole Lowe's heart on his season of The Bachelor, and he proposed during the season finale in Thailand. Lowe and Giudici got married in an ABC special on January 26, 2014 and have two sons: Samuel (born 2016) and Isaiah (born 2018). Their Instagram is totally swoon-worthy.
Hartsock gave Siegfried her final rose and he gave her an engagement ring. Then, the lovebirds headed down the aisle on January 18, 2015. They live together in Seattle, Washington, with their sons, Asher (born 2016) and Zander (born 2019).
Galavis broke with the recent tradition and didn't propose to Ferrell, instead choosing to continue their relationship off-camera. They dated for a few months, even appearing on Couples Therapy, before they decided to call it quits in October 2014. Farrell married Tyler Vanloo in October 2016, and Galavis married former Miss Earth Venezuela Osmariel Villalobos in August 2017.
Dorfman accepted Murray's proposal in the season finale, turning down future Bachelor Nick Viall (but more on him later). Dorfman and Murray announced their breakup on January 8, 2015, and Dorfman published a tell-all book about her time on the show and their relationship. She also recently had dinner with her third runner-up Chris Soules (who also shows up in a few slides) but apparently it wasn't romantic. We'll get to Murray in a minute.
The first Bachelor in Paradise wedding ended...uh...awkwardly? The duo ended the show's first season engaged and held a wedding ceremony on the show's second season premiere, but called it quits less than a year after saying "I do" in front of the cameras. Grodd later admitted that the two were never legally married. He actually married Ally Lutar in January 2018, and Faddoul's instagram is private, so we may never know what her relationship status post-Marcus is.
Money, a Bachelor and Bachelor Pad alum fell for Sattler, one of Andi Dorfman's suitors, on the first season of Bachelor in Paradise. They announced they were donezo in December 2014, only to get back together in June 2015...only to break up again. They reunited and made an appearance on Marriage Boot Camp, but it wasn't enough to save the relationship for a third and final time. Now, they're both dating other people.
