By Bach Bracket

After 20 seasons of The Bachelor, 12 seasons of The Bachelorette, 3 seasons of Bachelor Pad, and 3 seasons of Bachelor In Paradise, watchers might find themselves wondering how many of the couples actual made it.

The short answer to that question is, well, not many. But season after season, Bachelor Nation gathers around their TVs (with wine, one might add…) in hopes that the Bachelor or Bachelorette will make the right decisions.

So, which couples actually have lasted? Here’s a quick list of couples that are still together after their appearances on The Bachelor franchise.

1. Jason and Molly Mesnick

While Jason did not technically propose to Molly in the finale of Season 13 of The Bachelor, he did break up with the winner, Melissa, and admit his fault on After the Final Rose. Since then, the couple has married and had children.

2. Trista and Ryan Sutter

Trista, the first Bachelorette ever, and Ryan have been together for over ten years, having married in 2003. They now have two children – Max and Blakesley.

3. Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum

Ashley chose JP in Season 7 of The Bachelorette. The couple has been married since 2012, and has one child.

4. Sean and Catherine Lowe

Sean and Catherine rode off into the sunset (via elephant) in Thailand back in The Bachelor’s Season 17 finale, which took place in 2013. Since then, the couple has married and had one child, Samuel.

5. Des and Chris Siegfried

After being broken up with by the frontrunner of Season 9 of The Bachelorette, Brooks, Des went on to accept a proposal from Chris. Since then, the two have married and are now expecting a baby boy.

6. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth

Shawn proposed to Kaitlyn Bristowe in the finale of Season 11 of The Bachelorette. This, however, was not much of a surprise to viewers, as Kaitlyn mistakenly posted a Snapchat of the pair in bed together before the finale aired. The two are still engaged, living happily in Nashville, with their beloved dog, Doodle.

7. Jade and Tanner Tolbert

While Jade and Tanner were not the first Bachelor in Paradise couple to marry, they are the only BIP couple that is still together. The pair resides in Kansas City and are currently awaiting the completion of their new home.

8. Joelle Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

JoJo and Jordan got engaged 2016, but since have experienced a storm of media after Jordan’s ex-girlfriend claimed that Jordan is a liar and a cheater. Regardless, the couple is seemingly happy as ever, claiming that they, too, are in the process of planning their wedding.

9. Carly Waddell and Evan Bass

This adorably weird couple met on season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise and got married soon after. They are currently expecting their first child together.

10. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo

Rachel and Bryan got engaged at the end of season 13 of Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette. Though most fans were rooting for the runner up, Peter, Rachel sent him home before the day of the engagement and proceeded to accept Bryan’s proposal. Rachel and Bryan have talked about getting married sooner than later, and hope to someday have kids.

11. Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan

After a somewhat rocky journey during season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, Derek and Taylor decided to leave paradise as boyfriend and girlfriend. During the After Paradise special, Derek surprised everyone and proposed to Taylor, who accepted!

12. Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk

Raven and Adam got together on season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise. They decided to leave paradise as boyfriend and girlfriend and have been together ever since!

So… after 21 seasons of The Bachelor, 13 seasons of The Bachelorette, 3 seasons of Bachelor Pad, and 4 seasons of Bachelor In Paradise, TWELVE couples have stayed together. Whether that number will increase or decrease as The Bachelor franchise continues has yet to be seen, but you can bet that we will be watching (while drinking).
