6 Couples from The Bachelorette That Are STILL Together Today
The 13th season of The Bachelorette has been full of drama, romance, awkward dates and sad goodbyes, but we’re FINALLY at the finish line — by this time tomorrow, we will know which finalist Rachel Lindsay chose to spend the rest of her life with. We were so pumped to watch the 32-year-old find love as the very first African-American Bachelorette, especially after we rooted for her and Nick Viall to get together on The Bachelor. Right now, we know that the Dallas-based lawyer narrowed it down to three hotties to choose from to be her future hubby — Eric Bigger, Peter Kraus and Bryan Abasolo. While we aren’t sure who she’ll pick in the end, we DO know that she’s currently in love and planning to get married.
“[I am engaged] to someone from the show,” she told Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! several weeks ago.
In honor of tonight’s epic three-hour reveal finale, we started reminiscing about all our fave Bachelorette couples from the past. Although the show has been on for 13 seasons, only a handful of the pairs who got engaged on the show (that was all of ’em, BTW) followed through with a relationship that is still going strong. While some are still getting to know each other on a more personal level after rushing through a romance on television before they walk down the aisle, others are married and have children all thanks to the reality series.
To all those critics out there who say The Bachelor/Bachelorette is a total scam, we have to ask you to click through the below gallery. We’re not saying the small-screen hit is perfect by ANY means, but sometimes it DOES work — the proof is in the pudding…or maybe in the marriage licenses?
Trista Rehn & Ryan Sutter
The OG The Bachelorette couple has been the prime example of finding true love on TV since 2003. Trista was the very first Bachelorette contestant who just so happened to make it to the alter with the man who won the show. The pair has now been together for 14 years and has two beautiful children.
In a recent interview with Good Morning America, the 42-year-old revealed that he still has the final rose that the 44-year-old gave him back in the day. How sweet is that?!
