- There have been a combined 51 seasons of “Bachelor“-related TV, to date.
- And with that, there have been dozens of relationships, both failed and successful.
- Katie Thurston ended her season getting engaged to Blake Moynes.

Instead, she went on a final date with Moynes — who joined the season late after previously being on Clare Crawley/Tayshia Adams’ season — decided she loved him, eliminated Justin Glaze, and got engaged in the end. It all worked out, even after Thurston’s mom and aunt totally grilled him.
Except, that break-up wasn’t permanent. Over the last few months, James and Kirkconnell have been spotted out and about together. In April 2021, James told People that he’s “not pursuing any relationships right now outside [of Kirkconnell].” He added, “I said I was going to focus on my relationship with her and that means focusing on it.”
By May, James and Kirkconnell had both confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that they are officially back together.
“I think it’s unfair to leave people without the ability to unlearn and be better,” he said of the decision to give her another chance. They made their red carpet debut in July 2021.
Almost immediately, they were plagued with rumors and cheating accusations, and Moss posted on Instagram (seemingly without telling Crawley) that the two had broken up in January 2021.
However, the two have been spotted together relatively frequently since then. They have posted on social media together, and they even went on a trip to Hawaii together. Moss finally spoke about it during an episode of the “Hollywood Raw Podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn,” saying, “We are definitely taking time, and spending time together. When the time is right we will definitely talk about all those things. For right now, we’re just focused on one another.”
Moss added, “Clare and I are in a good place. Focused on one another and leave it at that.”
In July 2021, Us Weekly reported that the two are engaged once again.
But either way, after their final date when Clark was able to fully calm Adams down and ease any fears — she knew he was the one. So, she sent her other contestant, Ben Smith, packing and was left with just Clark.
After one of the most genuinely heartfelt proposals in this franchise’s history, they got engaged. They’re still together as of July 2021.
Horstmann had even flown down to Alabama to visit her pre-filming of “BIP,” a fact that was withheld from everyone for a few weeks — or days? The passage of time on “Paradise” is confusing.
But thankfully for Barbour, Godwin chose to stick with him, and the two got engaged on the finale. She even revealed she moved to California to be with her fiancé. They recently bought a house together.
After Unglert, who was on Rachel Lindsay’s season of “The Bachelorette,” the fourth season of “Bachelor in Paradise,” and “Bachelor Winter Games,” left the show, Miller-Keyes was devastated. But he returned to say he had made a mistake, and asked Miller-Keyes to leave Mexico with him to figure out their relationship.
Miller-Keyes, who made it to hometown dates on Colton Underwood’s season, left behind her rebound guy, Connor Saeli from Hannah B.’s season of “The Bachelorette,” to join Unglert in his much-discussed van.
The two are still together, adopted a dog, and even bought a house together in Nevada.
Tartick came in third on Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette” in 2018, and he was a fan-favorite. In fact, many fans were rooting for him to be named the next “Bachelor.”
However, Colton Underwood was chosen, which left Tartick on the market at the perfect time — Bristowe and Tartick originally started messaging on Instagram not soon after Bristowe and Booth announced their split. They went public with their new relationship in January 2019.
After over two years of dating, a cross-country move to Nashville, and two dogs, Tartick proposed to Bristowe in May 2021.
Wendt, straight off a stint on “Bachelor Winter Games,” copped to still being affected by his split from ex-girlfriend Ashley Iaconetti (who appears elsewhere on this list). Loch, from Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor,” was blindsided.
Thankfully, the two reunited during the reunion episode, and they have been giving us relationship envy ever since. Loch revealed in December 2018 that she moved to Toronto to join Wendt.
In September 2019, the two shared on Instagram that they had gotten engaged a few days prior in Toronto. While their wedding was postponed due to the pandemic, they did buy their first house in August 2020 — and in May 2021, they announced they’re expecting their first child together in November.
After the proposal, Luyendyk decided he had made a mistake and contacted Burnham, the runner-up from his season, before breaking up with Kufrin while the cameras were rolling, making for a controversial moment in Bachelor Nation’s history.
Luyendyk and Burnham began their relationship anew, and he proposed to her on the live “After the Final Rose” special, which aired after the finale.
But all thoughts of Adam Junior were pushed aside once these two fell in love — and now they’re the only couple left from their season of “Paradise.”
In June 2019, they posted matching Instagrams announcing their engagement. Gates revealed on Instagram that they postponed their May 2020 wedding due to the coronavirus, but they finally tied the knot in April 2021.
In July 2021, they announced they’re expecting a “honeymoon baby” next Janaury.
But these two have made it work. They live together in Miami, Florida, and, in Lindsay’s own words are “living their best lives.” Their wedding took place in August 2019 at a resort in Cancun, and was “island chic.”
Last fall, the two temporarily entered a long-distance relationship, as Lindsay moved to Los Angeles for her new job as a correspondent on “Extra,” while Abasolo stayed in Miami. He has since made the cross-country move to LA as well.
The duo is still together, and remain engaged. In fact, in August 2019, Rodgers “re-proposed” to Fletcher, complete with a jaw-dropping new ring — and they finally picked a wedding date in 2020, though it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They also bought their first house together.
They’re keeping busy with a reality series on CNBC, “Cash Pad,” focused on the duo “partner[ing] with homeowners hoping to turn their properties into ideal short-term rentals.” They also hosted the competition show, “Battle of the Fittest Couples” from October to December 2019 on the Paramount Network, and are set to host a new dating show, ‘The Big D.”
The timeline of their relationship is tricky, so they released a 45-minute video on Iaconetti’s YouTube channel explaining how they fell in love. Essentially, Haibon realized he had to make his move once Iaconetti returned from “Bachelor Winter Games” with a boyfriend (Kevin Wendt).
Their relationship was made public in May 2018, and Haibon proposed just a few weeks later. The couple tied the knot in a dreamy Rhode Island wedding in August 2019, attended by many members of Bachelor Nation, of course.
In March 2021, they announced they’re moving to Rhode Island permanently — and in June 2021, they announced their first child is due in February 2022.
The Lowes revealed that they had a third baby on the way one year later. “It was a little overwhelming to think about but we wanted a big family. This is just the way it was supposed to happen. So we’re excited ” she told People. Their daughter, Mia, was born in December 2019.
Despite the controversy, Siegfried and Hartsock got married in January 2015. Their son, Asher, was born a year later. In July 2018, Hartsock announced on Instagram that the couple was expecting their second baby, Zander, who was born in January 2019.
The two appeared on “Marriage Boot Camp,” which aired its finale in November 2018. The couple, thankfully, decided to stay together and work on their issues.
The two were married by June 2012, and have since moved to South Carolina, where Julian is from.
In July 2019, Durst posted an Instagram video detailing their 7-year-long struggle with infertility, IVF, miscarriages, and surrogacy. But happily, in September 2019, Julian and Durst revealed they had adopted a baby, Poppy.
But it worked out. Malaney and Mesnick were engaged later that year in October 2009, and were married just a few months later. Now, they’re one of the few “Bachelor” success stories, even if their love story didn’t start off in the most conventional way. They had their daughter Riley in 2013.
It worked out for Rycroft, too. After the break-up, she reunited with her ex, Tye Strickland. They got married in 2009, and have three kids.
Rehn chose Sutter in the finale, and he proposed. Their wedding was televised (the first of the franchise) and shown as a miniseries called “Trista and Ryan’s Wedding” in December 2003.
Rehn also appeared on the first season of “Dancing with the Stars,” and the couple appeared on “Marriage Boot Camp” in 2014. They’re still married, live in Colorado, and have two kids, Max and Blakesley.
Lambton, on the other hand, made it all the way to the final two in Ali Fedotowsky’s season of “The Bachelorette,” and even turned down the opportunity to be the next “Bachelor.”
The two of them didn’t find love on TV, but were introduced to each other at a “Bachelor” event in 2010, and they hit it off. They got married two years later in May 2012, and have been together ever since. “I’m so glad Andy Baldwin left me standing there on that aircraft carrier,” Wright told People, “I’m glad it didn’t go any further because it wouldn’t have worked out.”
Csincsak and Lueders married in 2010 while Lueders was pregnant with their first child, Noah. Their daughter Charlotte was born three years later, and their third child Brian was born in December 2016.
Since they both left their seasons so soon, you’d be forgiven if you had forgotten all about them. They met through a private “Bachelor” alumni Facebook group in July 2009, and were engaged by February 2010. They were married later that year, in November.
Durr gave birth to their son, Warner, in June 2012, and their daughter, Ellery, in 2014.
