Do you watch The Bachelor? If so, you may find yourself wondering what actually happens too many of these couples that wind up linking up and supposedly falling in love within the fast forward mode of television reality shows. You might actually be surprised to find that there are some that do indeed discover true, lasting love that they would not have otherwise been able to experience without being a participant in the show.
Throughout the seasons that have aired thus far, the show almost always ends in a marriage proposal and the claim of being in love. However, the couples seem to call it splitsville shortly thereafter. On many occasions, the break-ups have been quietly announced shortly after the season finale airs. There are happy endings, too, though.
So far, two couples have made it down the aisle and are living out their happily ever after dream, although these successes are from The Bachelor’s sister show, The Bachelorette. Three other couples out of the 24 that were matched up on the show in total still remain together, as well. It may be a fairly low success rate when you look at it all statistically, but that doesn’t stop the matchmaking show from being a hit. The show viewer rates boast over 7 million weekly.
Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, from season 1 of the Bachelorette are married with two children and celebrated their 10 year anniversary this year as well as renewed their vows. Their wedding was aired on ABC and over 26 million people tuned in to see the couple recite their vows and say their I do’s. They became the original poster couple for the show in finding “the one” but the recent marriage of Ashley Hebert to J.P. Rosenbaum shows that there are indeed successful loving relationships in the works once the cameras stop.
There are also many instances where couples have dated, lived together and even been engaged for awhile. Even if it didn’t work out in the long run for the couples, many have found happiness through dating contestants on the show outside of the taping.
