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

Jordan rodgers and jojo fletcher after the final rose
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

Arie luyendyk jr and lauren burnham in iceland
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

Nick and vanessa on atfr
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?

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

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez: Will They Make It Down the Aisle?

Alex Rodriguez is used to hitting home runs, having power 696 balls over the fence during his Major League Baseball career.

But he really hit one out of the park earlier this month.

That’s when Rodriguez proposed to Jennifer Lopez and the singer/actress/all-around-goddess replied with one simple, albeit hugely meaningful, syllable:

YES.

Indeed, the mega famous and ultra wealthy couple is now engaged.

And they’ve spent the two weeks since this announcement basking in each other’s hotness, while also gushing over each other on social media.

“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself,” shared Rodriguez the day Lopez agreed to be his wife, posting a quote online that also reads:

“A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.”

Who knew he was such a romantic, right?

This past weekend, meanwhile, Rodriguez posted the first photo we published above on his Instagram account and praised his fiancee’s acting ability in the caption.

“This beautiful woman starts shooting her movie tomorrow, ‘Hustlers,'” he began. “I won’t play spoiler, but I can’t wait until you all see how she transforms herself into a completely different character!!”

Adds the long-time steroid user:

“She’s been working so hard lately. I’m glad we were able to enjoy a quick little break before she dives into this new project. Love you baby and continue to shine, fly high and inspire all of us.”

Lopez, for her part, has also appeared quite smitten with Rodriguez.

She has shared a couple photos from his proposal and she’s seemingly brushed off claims that he’s been cheating on her.

So, everything is all good, right?

You can practically hear the wedding bells ringing already, can’t you?

Maybe, some followers believe.

Maybe not, others counter.

Rodriguez, for example, loves to play the field.

We don’t mean this in a baseball sense, even though he won a pair of Gold Gloves over the course of his tainted career.

We mean it in the sense that, ever since his divorce in 2008, the legendary slugger has gone to bed with Torrie Wilson, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, just to name a few beautiful women.

Some might say he found the literal most beautiful woman in Jennifer Lopez and he’ll therefore be satisfied and settle down.

But Rodriguez was not an honest baseball player, serving lengthy suspensions for performance-enhancing drugs and lying multiple times about his experience with these substances.

So who’s to say he’ll be an honest lover?

Lopez, meanwhile, has been married three times.

Which is totally and completely fine. Zero judgment here.

You just get the sense that she’s maybe more in love with the idea of being in love and desperate to finally make a union work.

We mean, let’s be honest, Rodriguez came across like a total tool during his days on the diamond. It’s hard to imagine he’s changed all that much simply because he gave J. Lo a giant diamond.

To be clear, we’re rooting for these stars to make it.

We’d never actively cheer for anyone to break-up.

We just have a few questions and many doubts.

Jennifer Lopez Shares Proposal Pics, Still Loves Alleged Cheater A-Rod

Jennifer Lopez doesn’t seem to care that Alex Rodriguez may have had multiple women down on their knees in front of him over the past several months.

Because the former Major League Baseball player and ongoing alleged cheater got down on one knee himself this past weekend.

Indeed, days after Rodriguez proposed to Lopez and announced to the world that “she said yes,” the singer/actress has shared a few photos from the special moment on her Instagram page.

It’s almost as if the whole thing was staged and actually NOT a surprise in any way, shape or form.

The beautiful images were snapped during sunset while Rodriguez and Lopez were on vacation in the Bahamas.

As you can see above and below, both superstars are dressed impeccably, with Rodriguez hilariously rocking the 2009 World Series ring he won as a member of the New York Yankees.

According to online estimates, the diamond presented here is worth around $5 million.

“Locking it down. #futuremrsrodriguezthis Rodriguez captioned his Instagram post on Tuesday, which featured these same snapshots.

The famous couple began dating on February 3, 2017 and have legitimately seemed very much in love ever since.

HOWEVER, shortly after news of their engagement went viral, Jose Canseco took a pretty hard shot at his fellow former steroid user.

The polarizing ex-Oakland Athletics slugger stated very plainly on Twitter that Rodriguez was carrying on an affair with Canseco’s ex-wife.

“Watching World of Dance watching J.Lo text Alex Rodriguez little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica poor girl she has no idea who he really is,� Canseco wrote.

He then added:

“I was there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone.”

Canseco, for whatever it may be worth, was the same person who was maligned way back in the day when he wrote a book in which he claimed tons of Major League Baseball players took performance-enhancing drugs.

He turned out to be correct, of course.

Elsewhere, a random fitness model named Lauren Hunter told The National Enquirer last year that she was also sleeping with A-Rod during his relationship with Lopez.

She complimented Rodriguez on his sexual prowess and penis size and said their affair ended in May of 2017, about three months after he started to give it to J-Lo.

“He told me he loved me, and he’s loved me for a long time,” she told the Enquirer.

None of these rumors appear to have dampened Rodriguez’s mood, though.

Not when, to use his own words, he just locked down one of the world’s most breathtaking human beings.

Rodriguez went ahead and opened up about their engagement in his Instagram story on Tuesday.

arod story

“There aren’t many words to share with you, only feelings. Gratitude. Excitement. And just … joy,� he wrote alongside a photo from the proposal in which he’s kissing Lopez’s forehead.

He concluded:

“We know there is work to do to keep building a family and future we can be proud of, and we can’t do it without all of you.

“We are so thankful for all your messages of love and congratulations.â€�

Do you think Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez will last?

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez: Engaged! With This HUGE Ring!

Alex Rodriguez ended his Major League Baseball career with 696 home runs.

But the polarizing third basement saved his biggest swing for Saturday night…

… when he aimed for the fences with Jennifer Lopez and connected!

On an agreement to become husband and wife!

That’s right, readers, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are engaged! To be married!

Both superstars shared the enormous news at the same time posing a photo of the gigantic rock Rodriguez gifted to Lopez on Instagram.

“She said yes,â€� captioned the image, which featured the diamond on his bride-to-be’s finger, while J. Lo published the same snapshot along with including eight black heart emojis in her caption.

Prepare yourselves to be blown away — but here’s an up-close look at the rock in question:

According to a People Magazine insider, Rodriguez popped the life-altering question during a vacation in the Bahamas.

He also did so after posted a quote on his Instagram Story defining a soulmate.

It reads as follows:

A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself.

A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.

Who knew Alex Rodriguez was such a romantic, huh?

rod/lo

The happy news comes nearly seven weeks after the couple celebrated its two-year anniversary on February 3.

Back when they first got together, most observers assumed this would be a mere fling between two very rich and attractive people with an extensive dating history.

But they actually have proven to support each other at all times in public and the feelings have seemed quite real for awhile now.

“You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place … in the midst of our ever-changing, ever moving life,� Lopez wrote in part of a touching Instagram post to celebrate the two-year mark.

Added Rodriguez in his own message at the time:

“We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”

soulmate

Rodriguez was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis.

They divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage and share two kids, Natasha, 14, and Ella, 10.

Lopez, meanwhile, was previously married to Ojani Noa, Chris Judd AND Marc Anthony. She shares twins Max and Emme, 11, with Anthony, who she divorced in 2014.

Yes, that’s three marriages — but Lopez has said in the past she would still be open to a fourth.

so good looking

“I do believe in marriage,â€� she told Harper’s Bazaar a year ago. “And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship.

“But I’m not forcing anything right now.â€�

As for A. Rod? She told this same magazine in this same interview:

“It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t.”

CONGRATS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!

Kylie Jenner: Okay, This HAS to Be an Engagement Ring, Right?

Hooray! Yipee! Congratulations!

All of this praise is finally due to Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott because the superstar couple has at least agreed to marry.

How exciting, right?!?

Granted, neither Jenner nor Scott has confirmed this development.

Nor has anyone in Jenner’s family nor anyone in Scott’s camp.

But still. Kylie has shared a new picture on her Instagram Story and we’re convinced it’s of a diamond engagement ring.

As you can see below, the image features Jenner’s left hand on the steering wheel and a pretty huge rock taking up a sizable portion of her finger.

She included a timestamp, showing that the photo was taken at 8:18 a.m., and the caption reads: “two cover shoots on this fine Sunday.”

Kylie Jenner diamond

To be fair, this is not the first time Jenner has rocked a diamond ring that resulted in her fans wondering if Scott finally popped the life-altering question. 

Heck, just a few weeks ago, we wondered whether Kylie was engaged AND pregnant.

How else were we to respond after Jenner posted the picture below of her and Scott and even wrote along with it, baby #2?

It’s rather obvious at this stage that Jenner likes teasing her fans, playing with their emotions and seeing how they’ll react to a potential engagement.

Just consider:

On social media, Jenner and her rapper often refer to each other as “hubby” or “wifey” — and they even labeled their Christmas gifts to one another as “daddy” and “wifey.”

The duo is apparently so secretive about their plans to marry (or not) that Kim Kardashian has admitted she isn’t certain where they stand.

“I think she would have told me,” Kardashian recently said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when asked about Jenner and Scott’s relationship.

Kim added in this interview:

“She’s pretty secretive, but I’m sure she would have told me. I’m not really sure. But I don’t think so.”

Really, though, it remains a question of when, not if, at this point.

Scott himself admitted as much late last year in a cover story for Rolling Stone.

“We’ll get married soon,� Scott said quite simply to this magazine, teasing his proposal and making it sound as if he knows what the answer will be when it happens:

“I just gotta study up – I gotta propose in a fire way.â€�

The artist doesn’t speak on Jenner very much, but he did gush over her in his own unique way when speaking to this publication.

“People don’t understand how real my girl is. How ill she is,” Scott said, making us laugh by concluding:

“They have assumptions, bullshit-ass remarks of what they think is going on. Nah, bro… She’s the coolest motherf-cker of all time.â€�
