As we wait to see how Matt James’ journey on season 25 of ‘The Bachelor’ plays out, we’re taking a look back at former success stories from the franchise!
Viewers will find out whether Matt James found love on The Bachelor when his season comes to an end on March 15. Between 24 previous seasons of The Bachelor, along with 16 seasons of The Bachelorette and six seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, we’ve seen many relationships from this franchise implode over the years. However, there are some couples who’ve been able to make it work after meeting through Bachelor Nation!
Ashley Iaconetti & Jared Haibon
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. Now, they’re trying to start a family together!
Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici
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! Sean and Catherine love documenting their family life on social media.
Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo
Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo got together on her season of The Bachelorette in 2017. They got engaged at the end of the show, and spent two years getting to know each other off-camera. In August 2019, Rachel and Bryan tied the knot in Mexico.
