These are the few ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ couples who’ve actually stayed together

As a longtime viewer of The Bachelor/Bachelorette romance “reality” TV show, I’m well aware that the majority of the relationships on the series do not last. However, it wasn’t until I did some digging that I realized how few of these newly engaged contestants actually stay together.

Not counting the spinoffs like Bachelor in Paradise or the ill-fated Bachelor Pad, these are the handful of couples who’ve managed to tolerate each other long after the cameras stopped rolling.

1. Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi, The Bachelor: Season 21

In case you’re curious about the national stats; only 1 in 5 engagements typically gets broken off before the wedding and the divorce rate is roughly 50%.
