Ahead of the season 16 premiere of ‘The Bachelorette,’ we’re taking a look back at which couples from the Bachelor Nation franchise have actually been successful post-show.
Clare Crawley will begin her journey to find love on The Bachelorette when the show’s 16th season premieres of Oct. 13. Between 15 past seasons of the show, along with six seasons of Bachelor In Paradise and 24 seasons of The Bachelor, we’ve seen plenty of relationships implode in Bachelor Nation over the years. However, there are a few special couples who have made it work!
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon have the ultimate Bachelor Nation love story. Their journey began on season two of Bachelor in Paradise, but Ashley was left beyond heartbroken when Jared decided he didn’t want to pursue a relationship with her. She tried to win him back on the show’s third season to no avail. Eventually, Ashley moved on, which is when Jared realized that he couldn’t live without her. They started dating in 2018, got engaged that summer, and tied the knot the following year.

Of course, the OG Bachelor Nation success story is Trista Sutter and Ryan Sutter. Trista was the star of the very first season of The Bachelorette, and she chose Ryan at her final rose ceremony. They got engaged and have been together ever since! Over the years, they even had two kids together. Meanwhile, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have a similar story after meeting on The Bachelor in 2013. They tied the knot one year after getting engaged, and are now the proud parents of three adorable kids!
Not all of the Bachelor Nation love stories were so traditional, though. Peter Weber was torn between his final two women, Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett, on season 24 of The Bachelor earlier this year. After the show, he wound up being with neither of them, but a few weeks after the reunion, he got together with a different woman from his season, Kelley Flanagan. Peter and Kelley actually met when they were both staying at the same hotel the month before filming began in 2019, so it certainly seems like fate really wanted to bring them together!
