There have been over 20 seasons of The Bachelor, but when it comes to how many couples have survived since filming the ABC reality dating show, the number is way, way lower.
So, how many couples from The Bachelor are actually still together?
You can count them on one hand. Yes, there are just four couples — not counting The Bachelorette or Bachelor in Paradise — who have proved haters wrong and shown the world that you can find love on reality TV.
Chances are slim, but not impossible. So, who are the lucky couples? Keep reading to find out.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney (Season 13)
Although Jason and Molly did not get engaged during a Bachelor finale, we're going to include them because their 12-year marriage is pretty inspiring. Not only did Jason dump his first pick and fan favorite, Melissa Rycroft, for Molly on live TV, but the couple tied the knot on national television in 2010, too.
Today, Jason and Molly are the proud parents of their daughter, Riley Ann, and Jason's oldest son, Ty.
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici (Season 17)
Sean and Catherine have not only beaten the odds and stayed together since getting engaged in 2013, but the couple is now the proud parents of three kids — Samuel, Isaiah, and Mia — and have started a few successful businesses together as well.
And if you're not following Sean on Twitter, you are seriously missing out.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham (Season 22)
Just like Jason Mesnick, Arie also dumped his first pick — Becca Kufrin — and went back with runner-up, Lauren.
So far, it seems that Arie made the right decision. Not only did Ari and Lauren tie the knot in 2019, but they also welcomed daughter Alessi just a few months after their Hawaiian nuptials. In June 2021, Lauren gave birth to twins Lux and Senna.
Don't feel too bad for Becca, though. She found love with Thomas Jacobs on Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise.
Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell (Season 25)
However, Matt revealed on After the Final Rose that he ended their relationship after Rachael's racially insensitive social media posts came to light. Nevertheless, the pair reconciled in April 2021, and their romance continues to flourish today.
How many 'Bachelorette' couples are still together?
But what about The Bachelorette? How many of those couples are still together? The number is the exact same; however, at just four couples out of 18 completed seasons, the percentage of couples that are still together is slightly higher. As of this writing, The Bachelorette boasts a 22 percent success rate compared to The Bachelor's 15 percent.
So, who are these successful couples? Keep scrolling to find out!
Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter (Season 1)
The very first season of The Bachelorette proved to be a success since Trista Rehn left the series engaged to firefighter Ryan Sutter. The two were married on national TV in December of 2003.
In July 2007, Trista and Ryan welcomed their first child, a son named Maxwell Alston. Then, in April 2009, the couple welcomed a daughter named Blakesley Grace. Honestly, they are our #couplegoals and #parentgoals.
Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried (Season 9)
In the Season 9 finale of The Bachelorette, lead Desiree Hartsock ended her journey engaged to Chris Siegfried.

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers (Season 12)
Once JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers met on the first night of The Bachelorette, viewers knew they were endgame. The pair got engaged during the Season 12 finale and tied the knot nearly six years later in May 2022.
"It sounds cliché, but I really am marrying my best friend," JoJo told People. "Everything that's happened in our relationship has only made us stronger. And we just feel so lucky."
