The Bachelorettes: Where Are They Now?
Clare Crawley is officially the season 16 Bachelorette and while hopes are high for the 38-year-old Sacramento-based hairdresser, does the franchise's history actually negate our expectations? How many former Bachelorettes found love during their season? And how many were able to maintain their relationship beyond the walls of the Bachelor mansion?
Join us on a walk down memory lane, catch up with the 15 women you watched fall in (and out of) love over the course of 12 weeks, and find out what they're up to today.
After Ryan Sutter popped the question to Rehn in season 1, the two officially tied the knot in 2003. Their wedding was televised in a three-part special because of course it was. The couple is still going strong over a decade later. Rehn and Sutter are now parents to two children, Maxwell and Blakesley. Bachelor-verse 1, haters 0 (for now).
Phillips won America's the heart on the second season of The Bachelorette, but her engagement to winner Ian Mckee didn't last too long. The pair split shortly after the show aired. Phillips doesn't live her life in the public eye anymore, and last we heard, she was married and remodeling her home in Portland, Oregon.
Schefft remains the only Bachelorette in history to not choose anyone during the final rose ceremony. Today, she lives in Chicago with her husband Joe Waterman and two daughters, Mae and Charlotte, while keeping a relatively low profile.
Pappas and Jesse Csincsak of season four broke off their engagement just a few months after the show aired. Pappas did get her happy ending, however, with Stephen Stigliano, whose brother Michael appeared on season five of The Bachelorette and on the now-canceled Bachelor Pad. The married couple have two children together, Addison and Austin.
Harris and Ed Swiderski may have called it quits almost a year after her season aired, but don't feel too bad for the reality star-turned-home décor and lifestyle specialist. Harris went on to host HGTV's Love It or List It, Too and W Network's Love it or List It Vancouver. She's currently engaged to longtime partner Justin Pasutto, with whom she shares a son named Leo.
Fedotowsky broke all of our hearts when she and season six winner Roberto Martinez called off their engagement. But Fedotowsky hasn't shied away from the public eye, serving as a Fox correspondent, hosting NBC's lifestyle show 1st Look for a few years, and guest blogging for E! Online. She and husband Kevin Manno, who wed in 2017, share daughter Molly and son Riley.
Both America and J.P. Rosenbaum fell in love with pediatric dentist Ashley Hebert, and the duo tied the knot in a televised special in December 2012. The couple are still happily married with two children, Fordham and Essex. Another Bachelor-verse happy ending in the books!
Maynard's engagement to season eight winner Jef Holm didn't last long. The couple called it quits just a few months after the show aired. But America's sweetheart did get her happily ever after with Tyler Johnson, an automotive management consultant, and the two wed in June 2014. Today, they have four children together: Jennings, Gibson, Josephine, and Gatlin.
Another happy ending for the Bachelor-verse in Hartsock's season! Chris Siegfried got down on one knee at the end of season nine and the pair wed in January 2015. They are still going strong today and welcomed a baby named Asher in October 2016 and a second named Zander in 2019. Other than being a Bachelorette success story, Hartsock is also a bridal stylist and DIY blogger.
Dorfman may be best known for telling off Juan Pablo in season 18 of The Bachelor, but she came back to find true love on season 10 of The Bachelorette. She and winner Josh Murray (who you probably know from season three of Bachelor in Paradise), called off their engagement just five months after the final episode aired, though it was probably for the best given what she revealed about Murray in her tell all book, It's Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After.
Bristowe famously broke Nick Viall's heart on season 11, sending him home a day early because her heart was already set on Shawn Booth. After a three-year engagement, Booth and Bristowe announced they'd ended things in the fall of 2018. But rest easy, Bachelor Nation, Bristowe's affiliation with Bachelor-style romance didn't end there. In early 2019, she began dating fellow Bachelorette alum Jason Tartick (from Becca's season), and they've been together ever since.
Fletcher fell hard for season 12 winner Jordan Rodgers, and fans weren't too surprised when she said yes to his proposal at the final rose ceremony. The duo are still engaged today and expected to wed in summer 2020.
After a two-year engagement, Lindsay and Bachelorette beau Bryan Abasolo tied the knot in Cancún. Lindsay, an attorney, also serves as co-host of MTV's Ghosted, and the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast alongside fellow Bachelorette alum Becca Kufrin.
Kufrin's been engaged to her season's winner, Garrett Yrigoyen, since 2018. In addition to co-hosting the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast with Lindsay, Kufrin has her own clothing line: B the Label.
While Brown initially chose Jed Wyatt as her fiancé, the pair split midway through the season's run when she learned that he'd had a girlfriend when they began filming. After filming, Brown asked runner-up Tyler Cameron on a date, but a relationship did not develop. Brown went on to compete in (and win!) season 28 of Dancing with the Stars.
