Your Favorite Bachelor Nation Couples: Where Are They Now?
The Bachelor Nation has swept our country! We can’t help but get caught up in the drama and romance that the franchise has brought us since the first episode in 2002. And many fan favorites go on to find love in the spinoff shows, such as Bachelor in Paradise. But where do all of our favorite contestants go after the last episode airs? How many of the couples are still together? Here’s a look at where some Bachelor and Bachelorette couples are now.
Jared Haibon & Ashley Iaconetti: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 2
After both Jared and Ashley failed to find love in 2015 on their respective shows, they both tried their luck at finding “the one” on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise. While the start of their relationship was more one-sided on Ashley’s part, the couple finally got together in 2018.
Unwilling to waste any more time, Haibon got down on one knee a few weeks later. The couple married in 2019 in Rhode Island, deciding to honeymoon in Greece.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Lauren Burnham: The Bachelor, Season 22
If you don’t remember the media whirlwind Arie started, let us remind you. Arie broke it off with then-fiancee Becca Kufrin a few weeks after he’d proposed, wanting to give things with the runner-up of the season, Lauren Burnham, another shot.
The two had their wedding in Hawaii in January 2019 and welcomed their first daughter a few months later May. As of October 2019, their daughter, Alessi, already has 322,000 Instagram followers. Let it sink in that a baby is more Insta-famous than you.
Catherine Giudici & Sean Lowe: The Bachelor, Season 17
Season 17’s Sean Lowe is another Bachelor record-holder, actually going through with his proposal to his winner and marrying her. Even though it surprised America when Lowe proposed to Catherin Giudici, they have proven that their love was built to last.
Their wedding was officiated by the host of the franchise, Chris Harrison. Since, they have built a life and family in Dallas, Texas. They have two boys with a third child on the way. While she’s not working as “mom,” Giudici works on her stationary card company, Lowe Co.
Kevin Wendt & Astrid Loch: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 5
It shocked everyone when the “mom and dad” of season fives Bachelor in Paradise split after the last episode. Kevin and Astrid hit it off from the get-go on the beaches of Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita, Mexico. Thankfully, the two reconnected during the show’s reunion episode.
In December 2018, Loch announced that she had moved into Wendt’s home in Toronto. Then in September of 2019, the two got engaged. Do we hear wedding bells on the horizon?
Colton Underwood & Cassie Randolph: The Bachelor, Season 23
No offense to Colton, but everyone thought he was going to end up alone. After Cassie Randolf sent herself home and he broke it off with the last two contestants, what else were we supposed to think? It ended up not being the case.
Underwood managed to convince Randolf that there didn’t need to be a proposal at the end of the season. The two agreed to date and now live a few miles apart in Los Angeles while Cassie studies for her master’s in speech pathology.
Tanner Tolbert & Jade Roper: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 2
Tanner and Jade, aka Janner, tied the knot eight months after the final episode of The Bachelor in Paradise‘s second season. They now have the distinction of being the first couple to get engaged and actually married off of a spinoff show.
They now live in Tolbert’s hometown of Kansas City, raising their daughter Emmy and son Brooks, who the couple welcomed in July 2019. Believe it or not, Brooks was born in the couple’s closet while Roper was getting dressed to rush to the hospital! She now focuses on parenting along with her jewelry line, Reviver.
Joelle (Jojo) Fletcher & Jordan Rodgers: The Bachelorette, Season 12
The first night Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers met at the Bachelorette mansion, sparks flew high. So high, in fact, that Fletcher awarded Rodgers the first impression rose: a symbol of their connection and immunity from elimination.
Since the final episode, the couple started a web series about their life together, “Engaged with Jojo and Jordan” and in 2019 they became the stars of a new reality show Crash Pad. They even purchased their first house together and have decided on a 2020 wedding date!
Carly Waddell & Evan Bass: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 3
There’s nothing like faking your own death to get your crush’s attention! During Bachelor in Paradise, Evan Bass faked a medical emergency that landed him in the ER. Somehow, it worked out and he got the attention of Carly.
The two are now happily married and living in Nashville, Tennesse. In February 2018, they welcomed their first daughter, Isabella, and in May 2019 they announced that they were pregnant again! When she’s not busy being a mom, Waddell works on her jewelry line, Reviver, with Jade Roper.
Holly Durst & Blake Julian: Bachelor Pad, Season 2
Holly Durst and Blake Julian proudly hold the title of being the only successful couple to come out of the short-lived spinoff Bachelor Pad. The two got married in 2012 and now live in South Carolina.
While Julian is a dentist, Durst is holding down three different jobs. She’s a children’s book author, runs a party rental business, and competes in beauty pageants. Well, maybe the last one isn’t a “job,” per se. In 2019, Durst opened up about their struggle with infertility, miscarriages, surrogacy, and IVF.
Becca Kufrin & Garrett Yrigoyen: The Bachelorette, Season 14
Season 22’s Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk, told Becca, the woman he proposed to, that he had made a mistake and that he wanted to get back together with runner-up Lauren. Yikes. Thankfully, Kufrin was able to find love with California-native Garret Yrigoyen on her season of The Bachelorette and the two got engaged during the finale episode.
In the summer of 2019, Becca launched her own clothing line, B the Label, and Garrett has taken to Instagram to show his support. The two are living in San Diego with their adopted corgi, Mino.
Kaitlyn Bristowe (The Bachelorette, Season 11) & Jason Tartick (The Bachelorette, Season 14)
Unlike most of our Bachelor Nation couples, Kaitlyn and Jason did not meet on their respective seasons of the show or any of the spin-offs. Instead, they met on Bristowe’s podcast, Off The Vine, shortly after she ended her three-year engagement with the winner of her season, Shawn Booth.
The two went public with their relationship in January 2019, moving in together a short five months later. In June 2019, they decided to ass a fur-baby to the mix — a rescue dog from Korea named Ramen.
Chris Randone & Krystal Nielson: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 6
What’s Bachelor Nation without a good villain or two? Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson were considered just that in their season of Bachelor in Paradise. Although their on-screen meltdowns left both of them without the immunity rose or a strong fanbase.
Randone and Nielson left the season engaged, getting married in Mexico in July 2019. They two now live in San Diego, California, with their two dogs, documenting their lives together on their YouTube series, “Glitter & The Goose.”
Jason Mesnick & Molly Malaney: The Bachelor, Season 13
So, Jason proposed to Melissa Rycroft on the final episode of his season, only to completely diss her on the After The Final Rose episode. That’s not even the best/worst part! Afterward, he asked to resume a relationship with his runner-up, Molly Malaney.
That doesn’t seem like the best way to start a relationship, considering he didn’t originally select her, but their romance seems to have flourished. They married in 2010 and live in Seattle with their two kids. Mesnick works as a real estate broker while Malaney is a KISS FM radio host.
Desiree Hartsock & Chris Siegfried: The Bachelorette, Season 9
After being let down by the person who everyone thought to be the front runner of her season, Brooks Foster, many Bachelor Nation fans thought Desiree Hartsock was going to end up alone. Unexpectedly, she ended up accepting a proposal from the last man standing, Chris Siegfried.
The two have been happily married for four years as of late 2019. They currently reside in Portland, Oregon, with their two sons, welcoming the youngest at the beginning of 2019. While she’s not at home doing mommy things, Hartsock works as a designer of her namesake bridal line, Desiree Hartsock Bridal.
Joe Amabile & Kendall Long: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 5
These two are known for their “odd jobs” and nicknames “grocery store Joe” and “taxidermy girl.” But they beat the odds and found love in Mexico during season five of Bachelor in Paradise. Not to say they didn’t have their issues.
The two have since rekindled their romance, moving into a West Hollywood home together in April 2019. When asked about their future plans, namely marriage and kids, Kendall told Life & Style, “We don’t have a specific timeline, but we talk about it a lot.”
Demi Burnett & Kristian Haggerty: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 6
These two ladies made Bachelor history when they became the franchise’s first same-sex couple. But their relationship didn’t come without its challenges. They briefly dated before the filming of season 6 but Burnett struck up a relationship in Mexico with fellow contestant, Derek Peth.
Unable to get Haggerty out of her head, she ended things with Peth. The show’s producers then flew Haggerty out to Mexico where the two women fell even more in love. Burnett proposed during the season finale!
Raven Gates & Adam Gottschalk: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 4
After they got together on season four of Bachelor in Paradise, Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk can proudly say that they are still going strong. Even though America watched as they fell in love, they decided to hold off on getting engaged after the six-week show came to a close.
The couple had a long-distance relationship before Gates moved from her home in Hoxie, Arkansas, to live with Gottschalk in Dallas, Texas. After nearly two years of dating, Adam finally popped the question and Gates said yes!
Dylan Barbour & Hannah Goodwin: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 6
This relationship was a classic case of girl likes boy, boy likes girl, but the boy wants to pursue other relationships before committing. Only, this time, it was Goodwin that didn’t want to commit right away.
She eventually gave in, and the two got engaged during the last episode of the season. Goodwin is now preparing to leave Alabama and move to California to be closer to Dylan. She’s continuing to model while her entrepreneur fiance works to grow his business.
Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo: The Bachelorette, Season 13
Rachel Lindsay caused quite the uproar during her season of The Bachelorette. Not only did she make history, being the first African-American bachelorette, but she accepted a proposal from Bryan right after telling Peter Kraus she loved him. Ouch.
In August 2019, Lindsay and Abasolo had their “island-chic” wedding in Mexico, moving to Bryan’s Miami house right before. As for their future, Lindsay told ET in 2018, “I want to have kids. I really want to start next year…We’ve been traveling so much and I want to create this family unit and a home for us.”
Caeylnn Miller-Keyes & Dean Unglert: Bachelor in Paradise, Season 6
Season four “bad boy” Dean Unglert finally redeemed himself and found love with former Miss North Carolina, Caeylnn Miller-Keyes, during season six of Bachelor in Paradise. Unfortunately, his “change” didn’t happen overnight, and he left the Mexican beach after breaking up with Miller-Keyes on her birthday. Somehow, he was able to win her back.
Now, Unglert lives in a camper can after selling virtually all of his assets. Miller-Keyes told Access Hollywood that she’s the happiest she’s ever been in a relationship, even joining Dean on some of his van travels!
