Once a reality TV couple, always a reality TV couple? Trista and Ryan Sutter, who met and made small-screen magic on ABC's very first season of The Bachelorette, are planning to renew their vows in a televised special airing on Jan. 19.
The two will once again exchange heartfelt messages on air to toast their ten years of wedded bliss. The prime time special will be part of a series of Bachelor-franchise events, dubbed "Juan-uary," in honor of upcoming Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis's long-awaited season. This includes, of course, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's much-anticipated nuptials, which will air live on Sunday, Jan. 26 (between the cheeky save-the-date and revealed registry items, we really can't wait for them to say "I do!"). And let us not forget Lance Bass's and Kimye's televised nuptials that are also currently in the works.

As for the original Bachelor/Bachelorette fairy tale, Trista told Good Morning America host Robin Roberts this morning that the secret to her and firefighter hubby's marital success is timing. "I think if you compare The Bachelor and Bachelorette to real world, it's probably not that different in that how many relationships you go through before you find the one that you want to spend the rest of your life with," she said on GMA. "But we just had all the components—trust, honesty respect, love, commitment, friendship, humor—you know, all of those things wrapped into one."
The reality star outlines her secrets to success further in her new book, Happily Ever After: The Life-Changing Power of a Grateful Heart. Her tips, adorably labeled "Happily Ever Actions" include creating an "Appreciation Jar." While Sutter suggests using the jar as a gift for a teacher, we think it's a great tool to have at home, and a great way to show your hubby how much you care!
We can't wait for the special and hope the Sutters' six-year-old son Max and four-year-old daughter Blakesley are involved in the ceremony somehow! In the meantime, watch the rest of the ABC darling's GMA interview, above.
