These Bachelor and Bachelorette Couples Are Still Together as of 2019

Proving you can find lasting love on reality TV!

Call us hopeless romantics, but we believe The Bachelor and its related spin-offs can result in true and lasting love. (Well, sometimes.) The 17-year, 46-season franchise is built around a simple promise: One Bachelor or Bachelorette is given 25 to 30 suitors to choose from, with the season ideally ending with love and a marriage proposal. While drama sometimes steals the spotlight, the franchise has led to many over-the-top television engagements and weddings, and many more happy couples.

While some couples meet on their respective Bachelor or Bachelorette seasons—like the now-married Trista and Ryan Sutter, Jason and Molly Mesnick, Sean and Catherine Lowe—other franchise stars are making connections on the show's spin-offs, including Bachelor Pad, Bachelor in Paradise , and Bachelor: Winter Games. And others are even meeting off-air at Bachelor Nation events, over social media, or through mutual friends. The weddings, however, are always practically holidays for Bachelor Nation fans and, much to their excitement, often televised.

So which of these reality-show couples are still together? To celebrate Colton Underwood's dramatic finale on the current season of The Bachelor, we rounded up all the still-standing duos of Bachelor Nation. And we hope, just as much as you do, that Ashley I. and Jared remain on this list forever.

Once dubbed the “godmother and godfather” of Bachelor Nation by Chris Harrison, Trista and Ryan were the first couple in the Bachelor franchise to be (and stay) happily married. When Trista finished second in the debut season of The Bachelor, producers knew she’d make the perfect Bachelorette. Ryan was the top choice as he finished season 1 of The Bachelorette with a handwritten poem and a marriage proposal to Trista. The couple wed on December 6, 2003, as part of a three-episode ABC special. They now live together in Colorado and have two children, Blakesley and Maxwell.

Jason Mesnick served quite the term during his on-air time in Bachelor Nation. In his debut on season 4 of The Bachelorette, he made it as far as runner-up, when bachelorette DeAnna Pappas ended their relationship in the season finale. Mesnick's broken heart was mended when he took the lead on season 13 of The Bachelor. Unfortunately, Jason fell in love with both of his final two women and initially proposed to Melissa Rycroft. However, in the subsequent live special, After the Final Rose, Jason revealed his lingering feelings for runner-up Molly Malaney. Onstage, he ended things with Melissa and asked Molly for a second chance. Jason and Molly were engaged and married within a year. Now the couple live together in Seattle and have a daughter, Riley.

Jesse Csincsak won season 4 of The Bachelorette, but his relationship with its star, Deanna Pappas, ended within the year. Shortly after, Jesse attended a Bachelor contestant reunion cruise where he met Ann Lueders, a first-episode castoff from Jason Mesnick’s season of The Bachelorette. Jesse and Ann hit it off and married in the summer of 2010 in Las Vegas. Today they live in Arizona and have three children. And, perhaps to pay it forward, Jesse organizes Bachelor and Bachelorette reunions!

Chris Lambton was the runner-up in Ali Fedotowsky's season of The Bachelorette, while southern gal Peyton Wright competed on Andy Baldwin's season on The Bachelor in 2007. Peyton appeared on Bachelor Pad in 2010, where she met Jesse Beck, another one of Ali's suitors, whom Chris knew well. Though she left the spinoff show solo, Jesse invited Peyton to an event that Chris was attending. Sparks flew between Chris and Peyton and they were engaged a year later. Following their June 2012 wedding, the couple signed on to cohost a HGTV show called Going Yard (Chris is a landscaper), and the rest is Bachelor Nation history. Today, they live together on Cape Cod with their daughter, Lyla.

Ashley Hebert, who competed for Brad Womack's heart during his second run as The Bachelor, got her chance to pick a suitor as The Bachelorette, and J.P. Rosenbaum was a standout from the start. After a proposal in Fiji, the couple settled down in Princeton, New Jersey. The lovebirds said "I do" during a televised ABC special in December 2012 in front of guests that included Trista and Ryan Sutter, Jillian Harris, Emily Maynard, Sean Lowe, and Jason and Molly Mesnick. They have since welcomed two children, Essex and Fordham.

Holly Durst, a contestant on Matt Grant's 2008 season of The Bachelor, showed up to the second season of Bachelor Pad with former fiancé Michael Stagliano—the two had a difficult relationship. Blake Julian, from Ashley Hebert's Bachelorette season, also appeared on the spinoff. As Holly and Michael sorted through their feelings, she and Blake began seriously flirting. Holly and Michael went on to win the show's grand prize, but their relationship was over thanks to her new romance with Blake. On the season finale, Michael was shocked as Holly and Blake announced their engagement. The pair tied the knot in June 2012. Today, they live together in South Carolina where Blake continues his dentistry practice and Holly is an author.

When Emily Maynard sent home Texas-based insurance salesman Sean Lowe near the end of her Bachelorette season, she confessed that she said goodbye to "the perfect guy." ABC agreed and made him the next Bachelor. His season culminated with a proposal to Catherine, a graphic designer from Seattle. The pair beat the odds and became the only couple from the Bachelor franchise to get engaged during the finale and ultimately wed. Sean and Catherine said "I do" on live TV in January 2014 before a crowd of former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants. Their televised wedding special chronicled their planning and decision to wait to have sex until their honeymoon. Today, Sean and Catherine live in Dallas with their two sons, Samuel and Isaiah.

Sean Lowe sent Desiree Hartsock home on The Bachelor, but her girl-next-door persona won her a spot as the next Bachelorette. She fell hard for Brooks Forester, who suddenly left the show before the finale. But former baseball player Chris Siegfried helped her pick up the pieces and before she knew it, they were yachting through the Caribbean. Chris gave a heartfelt proposal during the finale, and the couple got married off-camera in January 2015. Since then, Desiree has launched her own line of bridal gowns, and has welcomed a son, Asher.

When this twosome announced their engagement in October 2013, many were surprised that they were even dating! Elizabeth Kitt, a castoff from Jake Pavelka's season who later appeared on Bachelor Pad, and Ty Brown, a musician who had competed for Ali Fedotowsky's heart, reportedly met through mutual Bachelor friends (of course) and began dating soon after. They got engaged at the home they share in Nashville, and tied the knot in March 2013.

Getting an onscreen invite to the wedding of these two Bachelor Nation alums was the sweetest Valentine's Day treat we could think of, and we devoured every moment of The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love special like a heart-shaped box of chocolates. After attempting to win the hearts of *The Bachelor'*s Chris Soules and *The Bachelorette'*s Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert met on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, fell madly in love, and tied the knot in a televised wedding which aired on February 14, 2015. The reception was basically a big Bachelor reunion with alums like Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth, Trista and Ryan Sutter, Andrew Firestone, Andi Dorfman, and Chris Soules all in attendance. Chris Harrison even officiated! Today, Jade and Tanner live in California with their daughter, Emerson, and recently announced a second baby boy on the way!

Carly and Evan were an unlikely pair who fell in love through relatively extreme circumstances. On season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, Evan had very clear feelings for Carly, who seemed frankly uninterested in him. Following Carly's trip to the emergency room, her feelings began to grow and by the end of the season, Evan was down on one knee and Carly enthusiastically accepted. The pair wed in the beginning episodes of season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. They have since welcomed a baby girl, Bella.

After suffering heartbreak on Ben Higgins’s season of The Bachelor, JoJo took the reins on her own season of The Bachelorette in 2016. Jordan was a clear front-runner, snagging the “first impression rose” among many one-on-one dates, and the season ended with Jordan on one knee. The pair is still very much in love (according to social media, anyway), but have yet to announce a wedding date.

Following an unsuccessful run on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, Rachel headed season 13 on her own. Of her 24 eligible men, Rachel selected Bryan as winner of the show and her heart. As with many previous seasons, Bryan was the recipient of the first impression rose, and that initial attraction carried him through to the end. Though they have not announced any wedding plans as of yet, Rachel has reportedly been spending time with popular Bachelorette and bridal designer Randi Rahm.

An audience favorite from Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, Raven met Adam (of Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette) in Mexico on season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise. The two got off to a late start but left the season together and have remained that way ever since. There has been no mention of a ring or a white dress yet, but we see only good things coming this slow-and-steady couple's way.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham

Her season: The Bachelor, season 22

After heartbreak on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette, Arie was called back five years later to star in his own season of The Bachelor. In the finale, he ended his relationship with Lauren and proposed to Becca Kufrin. Months later, however, during After the Final Rose, Arie revealed that he couldn't stop thinking about Lauren during his time with Becca, broke things off with her, and reunited with Lauren. During that live show, he proposed to Lauren, promising to make everything up to her. Well, that he did, as the two quickly got pregnant and married. Lauren is expecting a baby girl with Arie, due in June of this year.

After a bait and switch in the finale of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season 22 of The Bachelor, no one was more deserving of a journey to everlasting love than Becca. On night one, he pulled up in a minivan full of diapers and orange slices. That was enough to earn Garrett the first impression rose and eventually the final rose, too. The pair recently moved to San Diego and will make a beautiful bride and groom, as this styled shoot proves!

Ashley I. is arguably one of the biggest icons to come from The Bachelor franchise, and wouldn’t we all be heartbroken had she not eventually found love with one of the handsome, eligible men she met there? Finally, in early 2018, Ashley and Jared announced their official couple status after years of an on-again, off-again friendship with benefits. Just months later in June, Jared proposed with a classic Neil Lane diamond while filming Bachelor in Paradise season 5 in Mexico. The pair is clear that this is the real deal and took beautiful engagement photos ahead of their summer 2019 wedding!

Chris "The Goose" Randone and Krystal Nielson

Both deemed the villain of their respective seasons, Chris and Krystal were an unlikely pair. But they met on season 5 of Paradise and their love blossomed before our eyes. Chris proposed in the season finale to Krystal, and they remain engaged today. They recently moved in together in San Diego, and addressed recent pregnancy rumors with the announcement of adopting another puppy. We are so excited to watch them become Mr. and Mrs. Goose!

Kevin Wendt and Astrid Loch

His seasons: The Bachelorette Canada, season 1, The Bachelor: Winter Games, season 1, and Bachelor in Paradise, season 5
Her seasons: The Bachelor, season 22 and Bachelor in Paradise, season 5

Kevin was the "winner" of Bachelorette Canada, and Winter Games, but, sadly, both of those relationships did not work out. Already a fan favorite to viewers in the U.S., his arrival in Paradise was a welcome surprise. He and Astrid hit it off early, but after watching his ex-girlfriend, Ashley I., get engaged on the beach, Kevin broke down, broke things off with Astrid, and with the show. The two both went home from Mexico. Outside of filming, the two reunited and decided to make things work. At the reunion show, Astrid and Kevin revealed they are dating, and that things are going well. In December 2018, Astrid moved to Canada to be with him.

Kendall Long and Joe Amabile

Her seasons: The Bachelor, season 22 and Bachelor in Paradise, season 5

Similar to Astrid and Kevin, Kendall and Joe met on Paradise but split before filming ended, taking into account life's realities—like living across the country from one another. And again, at the reunion show, the pair announced they had been seeing each other and making a relationship work. Also during the live show, Chris Harrison offered Joe a spot on ABC's Dancing With the Stars so that he could live in Los Angeles (with Kendall) for the fall. It was a success as Kendall was at almost every show, and the two continued to fall in love! He's now touring with Dancing With the Stars, but the two plan to find a place and settle down when it's over. As for a ring? Maybe he'll give her an iconic Neil Lane sparkler during this year's Paradise!
