The Bachelorette

michelle young cast small

Given the instant success of The Bachelor, it is no surprise that ABC wanted to give the reality dating competition, which premiered in 2002, a spinoff.

Instead of having men hand out roses, The Bachelorette gave the women the power to select their future partner — and also not surprisingly, the show has a way higher success rate than its predecessor.

Since Trista Rehn handed out the first rose pin during Season 1 of the show, there have been 17 proposals.

How long has The Bachelorette been on?

The show premiered in 2003 and the inaugural season featured Trista Rehn, who chose firefighter Ryan Sutter as her winner. Today, the couple is still happily married and has two children together.

The Bachelorette also made headlines in 2015 when it selected both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson as contenders and had the men decide who should hand out the roses. Spoiler alert: Kaitlyn Bristowe won.

In 2021, Michelle Young was selected as the next Bachelorette, after competing on Matt James' season.

Does The Bachelorette get paid?

According to Amy Kaufman’s book Bachelor Nation, initially the Bachelorette's salary depends on the pay they’d normally earn at their job.

So, Season 2 star Meredith Phillips took home $10,000 for her appearance. However, the pay has significantly increased since then and stars are now earning no less than six figures for appearing on the show.

Unfortunately, the contestants are not paid to appear on the ABC series.

Bachelorette Winners:

  • Trista Rehn — Winner: Ryan Sutter (still together)
  • Meredith Phillips — Winner: Ian Mckee (broken up)
  • Jen Schefft — Winner: Jerry Ferris (broken up)
  • DeAnna Pappas — Winner: Jesse Csincsak (broken up)
  • Jillian Harris — Winner: Ed Swiderski (broken up)
  • Ali Fedotowsky — Winner: Roberto Martinez (broken up)
  • Ashley Hebert — Winner: J.P. Rosenbaum (broken up)
  • Emily Maynard — Winner: Jef Holm (broken up)
  • Desiree Hartsock — Winner: Chris Siegfried (still together)
  • Andi Dorfman — Winner: Josh Murray (broken up)
  • Kaitlyn Bristowe — Winner: Shawn Booth (broken up)
  • JoJo Fletcher — Winner: Jordan Rodgers (still together)
  • Rachel Lindsay — Winner: Bryan Abasolo (still together)
  • Becca Kufrin — Winner: Garrett Yrigoyen (broken up)
  • Hannah Brown — Winner: Jed Wyatt (broken up)
  • Clare Crawley — Winner: Dale Moss (broken up)
  • Tayshia Adams — Winner: Zac Clark (still together)
  • Katie Thurston — Winner: Blake Moynes (still together)

Where is The Bachelorette mansion?

The Bachelorette is filmed at the exact same mansion as The Bachelor, which is located in Agoura Hills, Calif. The mansion is owned by the Haraden family, who rent it out to ABC for six weeks at a time to allow filming.

The family is also used to Bachelor Nation fans coming by on surprise visits. "Sometimes, you know, he’s not having it. They have got to turn around," Nick Haraden said of his father letting fans get a look inside. "Other times he’s like, 'Yeah, come on in, I’ll show you around.'"

Does The Bachelorette get to keep the clothes?

Despite having gowns custom made, The Bachelorette is not allowed to keep the clothes from the show. However, Andi Dorfman did admit to taking home a few items. "Let's just say some things might have gotten 'lost' along the way," she cheekily said.

She added, "We spent eight hours trying on everything and picking out outfits; then a seamstress came and fitted everything for me. A few weeks into filming, we did another fitting and picked out more outfits, and we were still picking out outfits all the way until the end."

According to the show's stylist, Cary Fetman, the show's wardrobe budget during Emily Maynard's season was $350,000. "It was bigger than any previous season – and we still went over," Cary told In Touch.

The Bachelorette couples still together:

  • Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter — The couple tied the knot in 2003 and welcomed their first child together, son Max, in 2007. Daughter Blakesley was born in 2009.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Seigfried — Despite not getting her first choice (remember the drama surrounding Brooks' unexpected exit), Desiree is still happily married to Chris, and the couple have two boys, Asher and Zander.
  • JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers — JoJo and Jordan are still engaged years after proposing in the Season 12 finale. However, the couple is in no rush to walk down the aisle.
  • Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo — Rachel was the first Black Bachelorette and her wedding to Bryan was in the summer of 2019.
  • Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark — Tayshia was the second Black Bachelorette and she's currently still engaged to her winner, Zac.
  • Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes — Katie was the first Bachelorette from Matt James' season of The Bachelor. She is still engaged to winner Blake.
