The Bachelor Couples: Where are they now?

The popular ABC show, ‘The Bachelor’ first aired in 2002 and has become a reality TV sensation. For 22 seasons, viewers watched anxiously being left with cliff hangers, suspense, and drama. People just can’t get enough of the show and anticipating which lucky girl or guy will receive the final rose and possibly a stunning Neil Lane engagement ring. I’m not sure what is more fun, watching the show, or the viewing party with all of our friends to watch together and talk about who you think they should pick.

However, things are not always how they seem on TV. Not even reality TV. Do you ever wonder what happened to the winners of every season? Who stayed together? Where did your favorite couples end up? We’ve got all the answers! Here’s a trip down the memory lane of Bachelors and Bachelorettes, and what these couples are up to now!

The Bachelor, Season 1: Alex Michel and Amanda Marsh

Alex Michel, a businessman and TV producer, was the first Bachelor! It was a fun first season, with everyone basically learning as they go along. At the end of the first season, Alex chose a gorgeous event planner, Amanda Marsh. However, after choosing to be with Amanda, Alex didn’t propose. Alex chose Amanda over the season one runner up Trisha.

Instead, the couple decided to continue dating. Sadly, their relationship only lasted for a few months before they inevitably broke up. What a sad way to start off the first season of the show. I don’t think this really phased anyone since there are so many versions of the Bachelor and Bachelorette around the world. Also, there are multiple spin offs.

Now: Alex Michel

After his breakup with Amanda, Alex seems virtually non-existent. He doesn’t have any form of social media, which is unusual in 2019.

However, Alex is now working for a consulting company in Washington, DC. He seems to be doing well. If any of you ladies are wondering, yes he is still single… for now.

Now: Amanda Marsh

Amanda however, is not single. She married her childhood friend Jay Caldwell. The couple has a daughter named Chloe. Amanda is currently working as a nurse and lives in Kansas with her family.

Although Amanda is married, you may be surprised to hear that she and Alex still stay in touch. They don’t constantly talk, but they call a few times a year on birthdays and holidays to check up on each other.

The Bachelor, Season 2: Aaron Buerge and Helene Eksterowicz

Season two of “The Bachelor” was the first season to end with a proposal! Aaron chose Helene in the finale and asked her to marry him.

A few months after the show ended, the couple broke up. I guess the British accent wasn’t enough because Lamas was accused of being more interested in the fame than she was in Matt.

Now: Matt Grant

Grant continued to look for love and began hanging out with Natalie Getz. A winner of ‘Bachelor Pad’ which is a spin-off show to the bachelor. It was never confirmed if the two were actually dating.

Although Lamas acted in a couple of movies, Lamas never fully returned to the spotlight. She appeared on VH1’s show ‘Couples Therapy’ after marrying her husband, Richie. I guess their marriage is a little rocky.

The Bachelor, Season 13: Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft

Account executive Jason Mesnick shocked Bachelor Nation in season thirteen of the show. Jason proposed to Melissa Rycroft in the season finale. However, on the ‘After the Final Rose’ special of the show, Jason dumped Melissa for runner up Molly Malaney.

Mesnick Justified his actions but explaining that he was really in love with Molly. Everyone makes mistakes, but a mistake like that on national TV made him one of the most hated bachelors on the show. Molly decided she wanted to be with him, and the two got married.

Now: Jason Mesnick

Jason married Molly in 2010. Even though she didn’t win the show, she won his heart, making Jason the first bachelor to find his wife on the show. Jason is now working as a real estate agent and living in Seattle.

The Bachelor, Season 14: Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

Pilot Jason Pavelka chose to mean girl Vienna Girardi in the fourteenth season of “The Bachelor.” The couple tried to prolong their 15 minutes of fame for as long as they could, but unsurprisingly, the two broke up just a few months later.

A month after the breakup, Jake and Vienna appeared on TV where they had a screaming match. This made them even more unlikeable, proving how fame-obsessed these two are. Apparently, the exes are friendly now, and by friendly I mean they are no longer screaming at each other on national TV.

Now: Jake Pavelka

After his break up with Vienna, Jake openly dated several different women. He decided not to leave reality TV and appeared on multiple shows including ‘Bachelor Pad.’

Rumor had it that Pavelka started dating Broadway star, Kristen Chenoweth but it didn’t last long, and the two ended it. In 2018 Jake began dating a woman for Arkansas. Let’s hope for his sake, this one sticks around.

Now: Vienna Girardi

Vienna stated dating Kasey Kahl, a ‘Bachelorette’ contestant. They were together for almost a year before breaking up in 2014. Vienna moved to Florida where she opened up a boutique clothing store and living the single life.

Some people say Maynard only came on the show so that she can be the next bachelorette. However, this didn’t seem to bother Bachelor Nation. Womack was already unliked for how he acted the first time he was on the show, so no one was too disappointed when he ended up alone again.

Now: Brad Womack

Womack left the public and focused his energy on the bars in Texas that he owns with his brothers. He began dating Ashlee Frazier from season fourteen of ‘The Bachelor.’ Unsurprisingly, the two ended it shortly after.

Reality TV is clearly not the place for Womack to find love. He now stays out of the spotlight and social media. He deleted both his Twitter and Instagram accounts. He seems to be having better luck as a bar owner than he did being the Bachelor.

Now: Emily Maynard

If the rumors were true and Emily Maynard only went on ‘The Bachelor’ to be in the spotlight, her plan worked. She became the next Bachelorette! She picked Jef Holm at the end of the season, and the two got engaged. The relationship ended a few months after the season did.

Ben explained how he only chose her because he couldn’t believe a model was into him, which sounds very superficial. No wonder the couple split up just one year later. To make matters worse, both of them gave interviews slamming each other! I guess they didn’t end it on good terms…

Now: Ben Flajnik

Ben moved on and became a co-founder Fernet San Francisco, an artisanal Fernet Company. There were rumors that Flajnik was dating Kris Jenner following his breakup with Robertson. Oh, and before appearing on ‘The Bachelor,’ this stud was apparently dating Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Since ‘The Bachelor’ brought them together, Sean and Catherine didn’t end their time in reality TV. They appeared on ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,’ and in 2015 they were in ‘Celebrity Wife Swap.’ Sean was also on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

As if things couldn’t get worse, he thought it would be a great idea to televise the entire break up, and then televise his proposal to Lauren. Let’s just say Becca was not pleased but turned it around when she became the next bachelorette.

Now: Arie Luyendyk, Jr.

Arie and Lauren became TV personalities, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel, “Good Morning America,” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” To most people’s surprise, the couple is still engaged.

Colton made it clear that he was looking for marriage. When Cassie wasn’t sure if she was ready for marriage, she left the show early, before Colton dramatically jumped a fence for her. Colton dumped the other girls and told Cassie he wants to continue their relationship. Without the pressure of a proposal, Cassie agreed.

Now: Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph

Although it didn’t end in a proposal, Colton and Cassie are one of the rare couples who actually stayed together after the show. However, this season just ended a few months ago, so only time will tell. So far, they seem to be doing well.

Colton made a huge decision and moved away from his family in Colorado, to be closer to Cassie in Las Angeles. The couple decided not to move in together quite yet and are trying to figure out how their lives mesh together outside of the show.
