Every Single 'Bachelor' Couple That's Still Together Today
There have been plenty of final roses given throughout The Bachelor's 20+ years on television. And thanks to spin-offs like The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Pad and even The Bachelor Presents: Listen To Your Heart, so many couples have fallen in love right in front of our eyes. But how many Bachelor couples are still together in 2022? You don't have to be a die-hard member of Bachelor Nation to know that not every romantic proposal was followed by a wedding—in fact, some couples didn't even make it to the After The Final Rose finale special. So, if you're curious to know which Bachelor couples are still together today, we did the
Instagram searching investigative work for you. Because while there have been plenty of dramatic fights and breakups over the years, the show has also produced quite a few beautiful love stories. Read on to see the 19 Bachelor couples that are still together today.
Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter
Trista Rehn was the very first Bachelorette back in 2003 and set quite a precedent—she and her final pick, Ryan Sutter, are still together today. Rehn first appeared on Season 1 of The Bachelor, starring Alex Michel, where she left as the runner-up. The former Miami Heat dancer was selected to spearhead the first season of the spin-off series, where she fell in love with Sutter, a firefighter and former football player. He accepted her final rose, and the two were married in a televised wedding that amassed over 26 million viewers. Today, the couple resides in Colorado with their kids, Maxwell and Blakesley.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney
Of all the dramatic seasons in Bachelor history, Jason Mesnick's tops them all. The realtor appeared first on DeAnna Pappas' Bachelorette season, where he proposed during the final rose ceremony. Pappas ultimately declined, which led to his selection as the next Bachelor in 2009. He originally got engaged to Melissa Rycroft, sending runner-up Molly Malaney home. But during the After The Final Rose special, he revealed he changed his mind and ended his engagement—on live television, that is. Minutes later, Malaney joined Mesnick on stage where he confessed his love to her and asked for a second chance, which she granted. The two dated for a few months before Mesnick proposed on a vacation in New Zealand, which Malaney happily accepted. Their February 2010 wedding was televised during a two-hour special on ABC. They're still together today, and they live in Washington with their two kids: Ty, Mesnick's son from a previous marriage, and Riley.
Holly Durst and Blake Julian
Contestants Holly Durst and Blake Julian got their start in the Bachelor franchise on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, respectively. Their paths crossed on Season 2 of Bachelor Pad, a spin-off that took place inside the Bachelor Mansion where contestants competed in various challenges while going on dates with each other in hopes of finding love and winning a cash prize. Durst won the season with Michael Stagliano, but the pair broke off their engagement before the finale taping. She went on to marry Julian in 2012, who was eliminated during the fifth week of their season. They're still together today, and after a years-long battle with infertility, they adopted daughter Poppy in 2019.
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici
After his shocking rejection by Bachelorette Emily Maynard, fan-favorite Sean Lowe landed the coveted Bachelor role for the 17th season in 2013. One the first night of the season, 26 women arrived at Bachelor Mansion (as opposed to the usual 25), but it was ultimately Catherine Giudici who won the Bachelor's heart. Lowe proposed to his love on the season finale in Thailand, and they were married one year later during a televised wedding special. Today, they reside in Dallas and have since welcomed three children together: Samuel, Isaiah, and Mia Mejia. Given their Bachelor success story, the two frequently appeared on later seasons to give advice to fellow hopefuls looking for love. And in a fun TV special, they once starred on Celebrity Wife Swap with their Bach friends Jason and Molly.
Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried
Desiree Hartsock first appeared on the Bachelor scene during Sean Lowe's season, though she was eliminated during the eighth week. The bridal stylist was beloved by fans, and she was later named the next Bachelorette. Contestant Chris Siegfried was not one of the six men who received a first impression rose on the first night, but he ultimately popped the question during the season finale—and Hartsock happily accepted. Today, they remain married in Seattle with their sons, Asher and Zander.
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert
Which Bachelor in Paradise couples are still together? We can't forget Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, the very first success story to come from the tropical spin-off. Roper first competed on Chris Soules' Bachelor season, while Tolbert appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe's. They met on the sandy beaches of Mexico and quickly fell in love—by the finale, Tolbert popped the question, thus earning their BiP royalty status. (Many contestants who try their hand at a second shot of love on the series reference these two as their inspiration.) Their 2016 wedding was documented on a special episode of The Bachelor, and today they have three kids: Emerson, Brooks and Reed.
JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers
It was love at first sight for Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers. (No, really: Rodgers received the first impression rose on night one, and the rest was history.) Their ultra-romantic proposal took place on the sandy beaches of Phuket, Thailand, securing their spot as one of the most adored Bachelor couples that's still together. Although their six-year engagement was never intended to be this long, as they've had to postpone their wedding plans multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic, it gave them plenty of time to perfect their wedding details (like their ultra-personalized registry on The Knot). Fletcher opened up to us in an exclusive interview about their perspective on waiting to have their ideal wedding day, which is set for early 2022. "We feel married already, so we want to have that day be what we dreamt it to be," she explained. "And we want the people that are there to also feel very comfortable."
Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo
When you think of Bachelor couples who are still together today, you can't forget Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo. Lindsay led a historic season, as she was the first Black lead in franchise history. Much like Fletcher, Lindsay gave her first impression rose to Abasolo—and he received the final rose too. Just two years later they married in a glam beachside wedding in Mexico. Lindsay opened up to The Knot about their wedding day, saying, "We always said we wanted a wedding where we are bringing two different families together and they are able to celebrate life and love and have the best time doing it. When we reflect on the entire wedding weekend, that is exactly what happened."
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham
In a dramatic season finale that resembled Jason Mesnick's, Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. first proposed to Becca Kufrin. But after changing his mind—and saying he was still in love with runner-up Lauren Burnham—he ended his relationship with Kufrin in an emotional on-camera breakup. He and Burnham couple rekindled their romance off-camera, and Luyendyk proposed during the After the Final Rose special. They got married twice: first, at a romantic Hawaiian ceremony, and later at a Vegas vow renewal after the birth of their daughter, Alessi. Since then, they've also welcomed twins Lux and Senna.
Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk
Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk are another Bachelor in Paradise couple still together today. They met while filming Season 4 of BiP, and while they were notable a couple by the time the season wrapped, Gottschalk didn't propose. (They revealed that, because they were living in separate cities, they wanted time for their relationship to grow off-camera.) They got engaged two years later, when Gottschalk popped the question on a rooftop in Dallas. After multiple wedding postponements due to the pandemic, the pair tied the knot in April 2021. In January 2022, they welcomed their first son together, Gates.
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon
Yes, it's true: Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are happily married today, despite a rocky start to their relationship. Iaconetti, who first appeared on Chris Soules' Bachelor season, had her sights set on Haibon when they arrived in Mexico for Bachelor in Paradise Season 2. Haibon, an alum of Kaitlyn Bristowe's season, didn't return Iaconetti's romantic feelings, and they went their separate ways. They found themselves in a similar situation the following season, which prompted plenty of memorable (yet tearful) confessional interviews by Iaconetti. After another failed attempt at romance with Haibon, she appeared on The Bachelor Winter Games, which she won with then-boyfriend Kevin Wendt. They later broke up, and a love letter sent by Haibon ignited their romance. They got engaged in June 2018 while filming the 5th season of BiP, and their Rhode Island wedding took place one year later. In January 2022, they announced the birth of their son, Dawson.
Kevin Wendt and Astrid Loch
Kevin Wendt is a familiar face in the Bachelor franchise. The Canadian firefighter won season 1 of The Bachelorette Canada after proposing to Jasmine Lorimer, though the two split a few months after the finale. He then had a stint on Bachelor Winter Games where he began dating Ashley Iaconetti. Their relationship quickly ended when Iaconetti moved on with Jared Haibon, prompting Wendt to search for love once again on Bachelor in Paradise Season 5. While there, he struck up a romance with Astrid Loch, who originally appeared on Nick Viall's Bachelor season. Despite breaking up before the season ended, they reconnected off-camera and began dating once again. Wendt proposed in his native Canada in August 2019, and amid a few wedding postponements due to the pandemic, they welcomed son August in November 2021.
Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes
Like many other Bachelor in Paradise couples still together, Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes found love on the beaches of Mexico. Unglert first appeared on the fourth season of BiP, though he quit a few weeks into taping. After a short time on Bachelor Winter Games, he once again returned to BiP Season 6, where he met Miller-Keyes. Their connection was quick and undeniable, but Unglert once again quit the show three weeks in. He returned during the fifth week and asked Miller-Keyes to leave with him so they could pursue their relationship in real life. She agreed, and they began traveling across the country in Unglert's infamous van. The couple made quite a few headlines regarding their stance on marriage, often saying an engagement or wedding wasn't in their future. But during an episode of his podcast Help! I Suck at Dating with Jared Haibon, he hinted that an engagement might actually be on the horizon in 2022.
Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick
Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe did indeed find love, but not in the traditional way. Although she ended her season engaged to Shawn Booth, the couple called it quits after three years. A few months later, she went public with Bachelorette alum Jason Tartick, who competed on Becca Kufrin's season. The now-couple met during a taping of Bristowe's podcast Off The Vine, though their relationship was strictly friendly in the beginning. Eventually, things turned romantic, and Tartick proposed in May 2021 while they were filming an episode of her podcast. While there's no word on when they'll officially swap vows, Bristowe has hinted at an October 2022 date.
Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour
Yet another couple to find love in paradise, Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour are still going strong today. Like many others, though, the beginning of their story wasn't without drama. Godwin found herself in a love triangle with Barbour and Blake Horstmann. After a few emotional weeks, Godwin chose Barbour and they ended their time on BiP with an oceanside proposal. They bought a house in San Diego while planning their nuptials, which were postponed a few times due to the pandemic. They're now eyeing a 2023 date.
Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell
Matt James—a close friend of Bachelorette fan-favorite Tyler Cameron—made history as the first Black male Bachelor in franchise history. His season, which took place at Nemacolin resort in Pennsylvania amid the pandemic, wasn't without controversy. While the show was airing, photos leaked of contestant Rachael Kirkconnell participating in racially-insensitive activities (like attending an Antebellum-themed party in college). Although James didn't propose to Kirkconnell, they did end the season in a relationship. During the After the Final Rose special, he revealed that he broke things off once the photos surfaced online. Kirkconnell, for her part, apologized for her actions and has since used her social media platform to amplify anti-racism resources and share her learnings. She and James have since rekindled their romance, and in January 2022 they returned to Nemacolin to celebrate their relationship one year later.
Katie Thurston and John Hersey
After being eliminated from Matt James' season, Katie Thurston was named one of two upcoming Bachelorette leads, alongside Michelle Young. She kicked off her season in June 2021, but the drama truly heated up when Bachelorette alum Blake Moynes showed up during the third week, asking for Thurston's approval to join the show. (Moynes originally appeared on Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams' crossover season.) Thurston accepted, and they ultimately got engaged during the finale. Their brief engagement ended after just a few months, and Thurston announced she was dating her former contestant John Hersey a short time later. The two are still together today, most recently sharing heartfelt letters to each other in honor of Valentine's Day 2022.
Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs
Like some of her predecessors, Bachelorette Becca Kufrin's love story began after her season ended. Following a short-lived engagement to Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr., she landed her own season where she got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. Their two-year romance ended in September 2020, prompting Kufrin to return to the franchise via Bachelor in Paradise Season 7. While there, she struck up a connection with Thomas Jacobs, who first appeared on Katie Thurston's Bachelorette season. Despite their chemistry on the show, they broke up during the finale…only to start dating again a few weeks later. While they're not engaged yet, Kufrin teased that a wedding may be in their future on an episode of her podcast Bachelor Happy Hour.
Michelle Young and Nayte Olukoya
One of the most recent Bachelor couples still together is, of course, Michelle Young and Nayte Olukoya. Like quite a few Bachelorettes before her, Young gave her first impression rose to Olukoya—and her intuition proved strong. She accepted his proposal on the season's final episode, calling him "my person." They've since revealed that they're taking their engagement slow and enjoying the process of getting to know each other and strengthening their relationship off-camera.
Clayton Echard and Susie Evans
Clayton Echard's season of The Bachelor was full of ups and downs, but the drama culminated in the final episodes when contestant Susie Evans left the show after learning Echard was intimate with the other two women in the group, Rachel Recchi and Gabby Winde. (He also pulled a move reminiscent of Ben Higgins', telling all three women he loved them.) Echard broke things off with both Recchi and Winde, saying he wanted to pursue his connection with Evans. They appeared together on the show's live finale special, revealing that they reconnected off-camera and decided to give their relationship another try. "I spent the last four months with her," Echard told host Jesse Palmer. "She just impresses me more and more every day. And she continues to give me reason after reason why following my heart was the best decision I could have ever made, and I could not be more in love with this woman."
