Bachelor Nation: Which "Final Rose" Couples Are Still a Thing?

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are TV shows with a clear goal. One you don’t need The Bachelor spoilers to figure out:

Set up a man and a woman with his or her soulmate.

Heck, nearly every season ends with a proposal, right? And yet… for years, almost none of these proposals actually lasted.

Very few couples from Bachelor Nation last several months; let alone several years; let alone an entire lifetime together.

Have their been exceptions?

Yes, just look at Jason and Molly. Or Rachel and Bryan. Or JoJo and Jordan. Or Becca and Garrett. Or even Arie and Lauren.

Yet it’s still an uphill battle. See Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt, whose engagement didn’t even make it to the end of the season.

Jed is a unique kind of tool, but the fact remains that it’s hard out there for couples spawned by this franchise to make it work.

So looking back through the years, who is still living happily ever after after the very final rose was handed out?

Take a look at notable duos from The Bachelor and Bachelorette and see whether they’re still a romantic item since the show:

1. JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers have been an interesting case, both seemingly over the moon in love and behind the proverbial eight ball since day one. They certainly seem to have weathered whatever storms have been in their path thus far, and enough time has passed that they’re no longer in the “honeymoon” phase that they’ve proven us wrong, for sure. Whether or not they make it to the altar is still an open question, but there’s zero signs of trouble right now, at least publicly. Hey, they even got engaged, again. For whatever that’s worth.

2. Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph

Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph are your most recent addition to this esteemed list of couples. By all accounts, Cassie was The One for Colton from the start, and it would appear that she was along for the ride as he busted the inaugural nut. Whether they actually get engaged and make it to the altar is suspect, however, given the hesitation we’ve already seen on the show … and just the overall odds. Not good.

3. Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen

Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen hit it off from the very start, and after a fairly conventional season of The Bachelorette, they got engaged on the finale. Perhaps the most notable obstacle for this duo came prior to the season, when his Instagram “double-tapping” of some seriously offensive posts and memes came to light. But in the year or so since they met, there’s been no trouble in paradise that we can tell. Only loving each other.

4. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham

Yes, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are still together … and MARRIED. And they have a baby!! Needless to say, the consensus was that Becca dodged a bullet when Arie pulled the ol’ switcheroo after his season and that Lauren might have her heart broken next. We weren’t rooting for that sad outcome, but just saying … it’s Arie. It seemed plausible, if not likely. But we are happy that they’re proving us wrong. We wish them the best with their marriage and family!

5. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo

Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are a match made in heaven. Bachelor Nation seemed to prefer runner-up Peter Kraus, but Rachel went with the smooth (too smooth for some fans’ liking) doctor from Miami at the last minute. And it worked out for them! These two got married in August 2019!

6. Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi

Look … we wished Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi all the best. But after the least inspiring public debut from a Bachelor couple since Juan Pablo and Nikki, it was no surprise that they eventually broke up. Come on, people. We were talking about Nick Viall, who was clearly bitten hard by the fame bug, and fell for a girl who didn’t want to be in the “business” or leave Canada, where he had no interest in moving. Just saying. The odds made them a definite underdog from the start, and their short-lived relationship proved skeptics correct.

The Bachelor & Bachelorette Couples: Who’s Somehow Still Together?

The Bachelor’s 2019 season came to a close with Colton Underwood finally experiencing what it’s like to be inside a woman.

But what’s going on in his head in terms of his future with Cassie Randolph, and how will that change in the months ahead?

Will they be a new golden couple for the show, a la Trista and Ryan, Ashley and J.P., Jason and Molly, or Desiree and Chris?

Or just a collossal bust, a la Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi? 

Perhaps somewhere in the middle.

Some recent franchise pairings weren’t given much of a chance at the onset, but are still together after a year or more.

At least so far, Rachel and Bryan, JoJo and Jordan, Becca and Garrett, and Arie and Lauren all have the last laugh.

As for the new Bachelorette, Hannah Brown, The Bachelorette spoilers suggest she’s got her eye on one man in particular.

Who is he? That we’ll have to wait and see about on the Bachelorette premiere. But as for those who have come before her: 

Who is still living happily ever after?

Take a look at notable duos from The Bachelor and Bachelorette and see whether they’re still together since the show:

Bachelor Nation seemed to prefer runner-up Peter Kraus, but Rachel went with the smooth (too smooth for some fans’ liking) doctor from Miami at the last minute. Don’t be fooled by the finale, which centered primarily on Peter waffling over his willingness to propose and Rachel being obsessed with him. Bryan and Rachel have been on solid footing ever since that day, and are going very strong to this day, with wedding planning in the works.

5. Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi
