Every couple from 'The Bachelor' universe that's still together

Every couple from 'The Bachelor' universe that's still together
  • There have been over 50 seasons of "Bachelor"-related TV.

  • And with that, there have been dozens of relationships, both failed and successful.

  • "Bachelor in Paradise" ended with two proposals, a couple of breakups, and a surprise pairing.

John Henry Spurlock and Kat Izzo got engaged on the beaches of "Paradise" in summer 2023.

Izzo, from Zach Shallcross' season of "The Bachelor," dated a few people before Spurlock, of Charity Lawson's season of "The Bachelorette," was able to lock it down.

During the finale of "Bachelor in Paradise," which aired in December 2023, viewers watched Spurlock get down on one knee and propose to Izzo.

"My heart's telling me that you are amazing, you are everything that I'm looking for. I really do see a future with you. I'm not falling in love, I am in love with you," he said.

According to social media, the two are still together and engaged.

Aaron Bryant also proposed to Eliza Isichei on "Paradise."

Bryant, of Lawson's season, proposed to Isichei, of Clayton Echard's season, after going strong almost the entire season of "Paradise."

However, during a "where are they now" montage at the end of the finale, it was revealed that the two had hit some "speed bumps" in their relationship.

Neither has posted on social media since the finale aired.

Kylee Russell and Aven Jones left "Paradise" as a couple.

Russell, originally of Shallcross' season, came to the beach with a plan: to meet Jones, who first appeared on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey's season of "The Bachelorette." She told everyone on the beach and the viewing public as much.

Her plan was successful — the two met and began a relationship, even though there was some drama at the end, as Russell wanted a proposal and Jones didn't think he was ready.

According to the show, their relationship has "blossomed" since the show ended.

Gerry Turner, our very first "Golden Bachelor," is set to wed Theresa Nist on live TV in January 2024.

Turner, a 72-year-old widower, made "Bachelor" history when he became the star of the first season of "The Golden Bachelor," which showed Turner's journey to find love after the death of his wife in 2017.

While there were some bumps in the road, fans eventually got to see Turner get down on one knee and propose to 70-year-old Nist during the finale that aired in November 2023.

During "After the Final Rose" that night, host Jesse Palmer revealed that Turner and Nist are set to get married in a live televised ceremony in January 2024.

Dotun Olubeko got down on one knee and proposed to Charity Lawson, as fans saw on the "Bachelorette" finale in August 2023.

Lawson, who appeared on Shallcross' season of "The Bachelor" earlier in the year, proved herself to be a steadying presence on a show usually filled with drama.

"The Bachelorette" viewers saw Olubeko and Lawson develop a strong relationship, grow as a couple, and eventually get engaged in Fiji.

"We're not really trying to have a super incredibly 17-year length engagement," Lawson told People following the finale. "We obviously came here to find love, and we have successfully done that."

Tessa Tookes of Clayton Echard's season of "The Bachelor" found love on "Bachelor in Paradise Canada" in 2022. She's engaged to Joey Kirchner.

Tookes, who was eliminated during week two of Echard's season in 2022, provided viewers with a franchise first during the season two finale of "Bachelor in Paradise Canada": She became the first woman to propose to a man on the show when she asked Joey Kirchner (first seen on season one of "Bachelor in Paradise Canada" in 2021) to marry her.

Speaking to Yahoo Canada about her decision, Tookes said, "I know my love for Joey. Even if he declined, I'd still feel really good about making that call. And women can propose." She added, "It felt really good to do something that's never been done before."

According to an Instagram post by Tookes, the two celebrated with a secret engagement party last summer, and have been going strong ever since.

Fans watched as Zach Shallcross successfully proposed to Kaity Biggar in March 2023.

After a very dramatic final week as the lead, Shallcross — who originally appeared on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2022 — got down on one knee in Thailand and proposed to Biggar during the finale, which aired in March 2023.

That month, Shallcross told People, "Right now, the main emphasis is living together in Austin, getting to know each other more and more, and just see how things go. There's no rush."

In July 2023, Biggar posted on Instagram that the two are "officially roommates" in Austin together.

After weeks of speculation, Greg Grippo and Victoria Fuller confirmed their relationship in November 2022.

In October 2022, reality TV blogger and podcast host Reality Steve tweeted a video of Grippo and Fuller on vacation together in Rome — but at the same time, fans were watching Fuller (who was first on Peter Weber's season in 2020) fall in love with Johnny DePhillipo (from Gabby Windey's season earlier in 2022) on the eighth season of "Bachelor in Paradise."

Fans speculated online for weeks about what happened between Fuller and DePhillipo before finally getting the full story in November 2022 during the "Paradise" reunion. The two had ended the season engaged, but DePhillipo revealed on stage at the reunion that the two had broken up.

According to Fuller and Grippo (who is originally from Katie Thurston's season in 2021), the two began talking once she got home from "Paradise," her relationship with DePhillipo started breaking down, then Fuller and Grippo took a trip to Rome together and got matching tattoos, as the two discussed during the reunion.

"Yes, Greg and I are together," Fuller said on stage. "No one has to understand it or get it and that's OK."

Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile got married (again) in Charleston in September 2023 in after meeting on the seventh season of "Bachelor in Paradise."

Throughout the entire seventh season of "Paradise," there wasn't a stronger couple than "Grocery Store Joe" Amabile (originally from Becca Kufrin's season in 2018) and Pitt (from Matt James' season in 2021). Even though Amabile's "Paradise" ex Kendall Long showed up at the proposal, nothing could shake their relationship.

They left the beach engaged in fall 2021, and just over a year later they got married at a New York City courthouse with "Paradise" castmate Natasha Parker as a witness. The couple posted footage from their courthouse ceremony to Instagram in October 2022, and wrote in the caption that they still planned to have a wedding the following September.

Shortly after getting married, they told People: "We still plan on having a big wedding next fall that we are already planning, but with everything being so public in our relationship, having a private moment just the two of us felt so special and intimate."

In September 2023, they got married again, this time in front of their friends and family — with "Paradise" bartender Wells Adams officiating. The wedding, which was in Charleston, South Carolina, was documented on Instagram.

Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin wed in November 2023.

Braasch and Pepin had a rocky time in "Paradise."

After starting off strong, Pepin, who was on Matt James' season in 2021, decided that she wanted to be able to date other people. Braasch, from Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams' season in 2020, then started pursuing castmates Demi Burnett and Tia Booth.

However, Pepin soon decided she wanted Braasch back, and they got back together. He even proposed at the end of the season.

As People reported, the two got married in Puerto Rico in November 2023.

Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs broke up, but they later rekindled their romance off-screen. Now, they're engaged, and Kufrin gave birth to their first child together in September 2023.

After getting dumped on TV by Arie Luyendyk in 2018, Kufrin went on to star in her own season of "The Bachelorette" that year. Her relationship with the winner Garrett Yrigoyen ended in 2020, she confirmed on an episode of her podcast, "Bachelor Happy Hour."

Then, when Kufrin appeared on "Paradise" in 2021, she was hesitant to date Jacobs, who had appeared on Katie Thurston's season earlier in the year and was portrayed as one of the season's villains. However, the two built a solid relationship during the show, until Kufrin called things off during the "Paradise" finale.

The two reconnected off-screen and began dating. In May 2022, they revealed on Instagram that they'd gotten engaged and, as Kufrin wrote in the caption, "in the ultimate plot twist," she proposed to Jacobs.

In October 2022, Jacobs returned the favor and proposed to Kufrin. "We are so excited! It's time we can finally start wedding planning," Kufrin told People at the time.

Kufrin announced her pregnancy in April 2023. The two confirmed the birth of their son, Benson, on Instagram in September 2023.

Noah Erb and Abigail Heringer got engaged in August 2023.

Heringer, from Matt James' season in 2021, and Erb, from Tayshia Adams' season in 2020, went on the first date of their season of "Paradise" and they were together for the entire season, with a few hiccups along the way.

In the penultimate episode of the season, Erb decided that he was simultaneously falling in love with Heringer and didn't think she was "his person." They left Mexico separately.

But like Kufrin and Jacobs, the two reconnected post-"Paradise," which they confirmed during the reunion in October 2021.

The two announced on Instagram in August 2023 that they are engaged, accompanied by a caption with a reference to Taylor Swift's song "Lover."

Chris Conran and Alana Milne are dating after getting kicked off "Paradise" together.

Conran, who was eliminated on night one of Clare Crawley's season in 2020, was originally dating Jessenia Cruz of Matt James' season in 2021, but that changed when Alana Milne, also from James' season, entered the beach.

The two quickly decided to pursue a relationship, leaving Cruz in the dust. In turn, everyone on the beach ganged up on them and claimed that they'd been dating pre-"Paradise," a claim they both denied.

After the cast essentially told them that none of them would speak to the couple if they stayed, they left separately.

But then Conran and Milne were spotted hanging out together, and Milne confirmed the relationship on her Instagram story, posting a photo of the two kissing captioned, "Paradise is wherever I'm with you." Conran reposted and wrote: "3 months of no cameras or producers," Us Weekly reported.

They moved in together in November 2021, according to an Instagram post shared by Conran.

Matt James is dating his season's controversial winner, Rachael Kirkconnell.

While James' season of "The Bachelor" was airing in 2021, controversial social-media content that showed Kirkconnell attending a plantation-themed ball was found by fans and shared on Reddit.

The fallout led to the permanent exit of Chris Harrison; Rachel Lindsay leaving the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast, which she announced on the show; "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man" author Emmanuel Acho hosting "After the Final Rose"; and finally, the breakup of James and Kirkconnell.

Except, that breakup wasn't permanent. In April 2021, James and Kirkconnell were spotted together in New York City. That same month, James told People that he's "not pursuing any relationships right now outside" of Kirkconnell.

By May 2021, James and Kirkconnell had both confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that they are officially back together.

"I think it's unfair to leave people without the ability to unlearn and be better," he said of the decision to give her another chance.

After a rocky start, Dylan Barbour and Hannah Godwin made it through season six of "BIP." They got married at a French estate in August 2023.

Barbour (from Hannah Brown's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2019) made it clear that he was only there for Godwin — who was left blindsided on Colton Underwood's season of "The Bachelor," also in 2019 — during the first episode of season six of "Paradise" in 2019. However, she needed a little more time to explore things with Blake Horstmann, a runner-up on Becca Kufrin's season of "The Bachelorette."

Horstmann had even flown down to Alabama to visit her before the two began filming for "Bachelor in Paradise," a fact that was withheld from the rest of the cast (and the viewing public) until the fourth episode.

But Godwin chose to stick with Barbour, and the two got engaged on the finale, which aired in September 2019. They married in August 2023.

After meeting on "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2019, Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes wed in September 2023.

When Unglert, who was on Rachel Lindsay's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2017, left "Paradise" early, Miller-Keyes was devastated. But he returned to say he had made a mistake, and asked Miller-Keyes to leave Mexico with him to figure out their relationship.

This wasn't a complete surprise, as E! News reported in July 2019 that the two were dating, but fans finally got to see how their relationship unfolded during an episode of "Bachelor in Paradise" that aired in September 2019.

Miller-Keyes, who made it to hometown dates on Colton Underwood's season in 2018, left behind her rebound guy, Connor Saeli from Hannah Brown's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2019, to join Unglert in his much-discussed van.

In October 2022, a source told People that Unglert and Miller-Keyes were engaged. That month, Unglert also spoke about the proposal during an episode of his podcast with fellow "Bachelor" alum Jared Haibon. A few days later, Unglert confirmed the news on his Instagram.

They got married in September 2023 at a Colorado mountain resort outside of Aspen.

Kevin Wendt and Astrid Loch starting dating during "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2018. They're now married with two kids.

Known affectionately by their fellow "Paradise" contestants as "Mom and Dad," the cast was shocked when the most solid couple of the season broke up on the last day of "Paradise" during season five in September 2018.

Wendt, straight off a stint on "Bachelor Winter Games" in 2018, copped to still being affected by his split from ex-girlfriend Ashley Iaconetti (who appears elsewhere on this list). Loch, from Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor" in 2017, was blindsided.

The two were brought together again during the reunion episode. They got engaged in August 2019 and welcomed their son August in November 2021, People reported. They married in October 2022.

In February 2023, Loch shared that they were expecting their second child, and their son, Nash, was born in October.

Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham got engaged on the "After the Final Rose" special, after Luyendyk shocked the world by dumping Becca Kufrin on TV. They're now married with three kids.

Luyendyk first appeared on the eighth season of "The Bachelorette" in 2012, competing for the love of Emily Maynard. He eventually became the runner-up.

In 2017, ABC made the surprising move to bring him back for the 22nd season of "The Bachelor," where viewers watched him propose to Kufrin.

Soon after the proposal, however, Luyendyk decided he had made a mistake and contacted Burnham, the runnerup from his season, before breaking up with Kufrin while the cameras were rolling, making for a controversial moment in Bachelor Nation's history.

Luyendyk and Burnham began their relationship anew, and he proposed to her on the live "After the Final Rose" special, which aired after the finale in March 2018.

They had a destination wedding in Hawaii in January 2019, People reported, and their daughter, Alessi, was born in May of that year.

They later welcomed twins, Lux and Senna, in June 2021.

Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk found love on season four of "Bachelor in Paradise." They got married in April 2021 and now have two kids together.

Gates quickly became a fan favorite while she was a contestant on Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor" in 2017. After finishing in second place, she made her way to Mexico for "Bachelor in Paradise" that August where she met Gottschalk, who had been a contestant on Rachel Lindsay's season of "The Bachelorette" earlier that year.

In June 2019, they shared matching Instagram posts announcing their engagement. Gates revealed on social media that they postponed their May 2020 wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they finally married in April 2021, as she shared on Instagram.

Their son Gates was born in January 2022, and their son Max was born in July 2023.

Rachel Lindsay shocked fans when she chose Bryan Abasolo as her winner, but they got married in August 2019.

Lindsay made history for being the first Black Bachelorette after she came in third on Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor" in 2017.

After her emotional breakup with Peter Kraus, fans were a bit dubious when she immediately said yes to Abasolo's proposal in August 2017. (Abasolo wasn't the most popular with fans of the show.)

But the two have made it work. They are, in Lindsay's own words, "living their best lives," as she told Kraus during the finale in 2017, ET reported. Their wedding took place in August 2019 at a resort in Cancun, and was "island chic," as reported by People at the time.

Jordan Rodgers proposed to JoJo Fletcher during season 12 of "The Bachelorette." They married in May 2022.

After Fletcher, first seen on Ben Higgins' season in 2016, sent Robby Hayes home, she accepted a proposal from Rodgers on the "The Bachelorette," which aired later that year.

Years later, Fletcher and Rodgers are still together. In fact, in August 2019, Rodgers "re-proposed" to Fletcher, complete with a new ring, as Fletcher shared on Instagram. In May 2022, after six years together and two postponed wedding dates, Fletcher and Rodgers married at a California winery.

The couple also had a reality series on CNBC, "Cash Pad," where they partnered with "homeowners hoping to turn their properties into ideal short-term rentals," according to the network.

They also hosted the competition show, "Battle of the Fittest Couples" from October to December 2019 on the Paramount Network, and another competition show, "The Big D," on USA from June to August 2023.

Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti's love story began in 2015. They married in August 2019 and welcomed a son in 2022.

In 2015, Haibon and Iaconetti competed on Kaitlyn Bristowe and Chris Soules' seasons of "The Bachelorette" and "The Bachelor" respectively, and met during the second season of "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2015. At the time, Iaconetti was smitten, but Haibon wasn't as interested.

According to a 45-minute video the couple released on Iaconetti's YouTube channel about how they fell in love, Haibon realized he had to make his move when Iaconetti returned from "Bachelor Winter Games" in 2018 with a boyfriend (Kevin Wendt).

Their relationship was made Instagram-official in May 2018, and Haibon proposed just a few weeks later, as E! News reported. The couple married in Rhode Island in August 2019, with a number of Bachelor Nation members in attendance at their wedding, as People reported at the time.

In March 2021, they announced their move to Rhode Island on Instagram, and opened a coffeehouse and lounge called Audrey's in South Kingstown.

Their son, Dawson, was born in January 2022.

Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert met on "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2015 and got married eight months later. They welcomed their third child in November 2020.

Tolbert was originally on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season, while Roper was on Chris Soules' season of "The Bachelor," both in 2015.

But now, "Janner," as they're known, are the gold standard for "Bachelor in Paradise" couples. They were the first in the spinoff's history to get engaged and actually get married — there had been a few false starts with other couples — and they have been making it work ever since their finale aired in September 2015.

They had their issues — which were shown on their season of "Marriage Boot Camp" in 2016 — but they worked through them.

Their first daughter, Emerson, was born in August 2017. Their son, Brooks, was born in July 2019, after Roper gave birth in her closet, which she shared on Instagram. And in November 2020, they welcomed their third child, Reed.

In August 2023, Roper shared on Instagram that she was experiencing "a missed miscarriage," and said her unborn son's heart had stopped though her body hadn't "released the pregnancy yet."

"I've been carrying him with so much pride and cherish every moment still left with part of him, but it has also been equally as challenging and devastating," she wrote.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici remain the sole winning "Bachelor" couple to get married. Giudici gave birth to their third child in December 2019.

Sean Lowe is the only "Bachelor" lead (season 17, 2013) that has stayed with the winner of his season — both Jason Mesnick and Arie Luyendyk returned to the runners-up of their seasons. Lowe had previously appeared on Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette" in 2012.

As People reported, Lowe and Giudici had their first son, Samuel, in July 2016, two years after their televised wedding in 2014. Their second son Isaiah was born in June 2018.

Their third child, a daughter they named Mia, was born in December 2019.

Chris Siegfried proposed to Desiree Hartsock on season nine of "The Bachelorette." They got married in 2015, had their first child in 2016, and their second in January 2019.

Hartsock originally appeared on Sean Lowe's season of "The Bachelor" in 2013, but she was sent home. Her season of "The Bachelorette" was especially controversial — she was broken up with by Brooks Forester during the second-to-last week of the show, who many considered to be the frontrunner. Some fans believed Hartsock was settling when she accepted Siegfried's proposal back in August 2013.

Despite the controversy, Siegfried and Hartsock got married in January 2015. Their son, Asher, was born a year later. In July 2018, the couple told Us Weekly that they were expecting their second child, Zander. He was born in January 2019.

In 2018, the couple appeared on "Marriage Boot Camp," a show where couples confront the marital issues they're facing, and decided to stay together and work on their relationship.

Holly Durst and Blake Julian have the distinction of being the only successful couple from the short-lived spinoff series "Bachelor Pad." They have two kids.

Durst and Julian met during the second season of "Bachelor Pad" in 2011. Julian was fresh off Ashley Hebert's season of "The Bachelorette," and Durst had last been seen on Matt Grant's season in 2008. Julian's proposal was announced during the season finale.

The two got married in June 2012.

In July 2019, Durst posted an Instagram video detailing their 7-year struggle with infertility, IVF, miscarriages, and surrogacy.

In September 2019, Julian and Durst revealed on Instagram that they had adopted a baby, Poppy.

Then, in January 2023, they announced the adoption of their son, Knox.

Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa Rycroft on the finale of his season of "The Bachelor" but revealed on "After the Final Rose" that he was still in love with runner-up Molly Malaney. They celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary in 2022.

Mesnick was originally on DeAnna Pappas' season in 2008. He proposed to Rycroft, dumped her on "After the Final Rose," and immediately asked Malaney if they could resume their relationship in March 2009, which they discussed during an interview with People that month.

Malaney and Mesnick were engaged later that year in October 2009, Mesnick confirmed to Us Weekly, and were married just a few months later.

Now, they're one of the few "Bachelor" success stories, even if their love story didn't start off in the most conventional way. They had their daughter Riley in 2013.

Things worked out for Rycroft, too. After the breakup, she reunited with her ex, Tye Strickland. They got married in 2009, and have three kids.

Trista Rehn was the very first "Bachelorette" and set a high bar for the franchise — she's been with the winner of her season, Ryan Sutter, since 2003.

Just uttering the words "Trista and Ryan" around a "Bachelor" fan will send them on a trip down memory lane. The year was 2003, and Trista was the very first "Bachelorette," after getting sent home as the runner-up of the first season of "The Bachelor."

Rehn chose Sutter in the finale, and he proposed. Their wedding was televised (the first of the franchise) and shown as a miniseries called "Trista and Ryan's Wedding" in December 2003.

Rehn also appeared on the first season of "Dancing with the Stars" in 2005, and the couple appeared on "Marriage Boot Camp" in 2014. They're still married, live in Colorado, and have two kids, Max and Blakesley.

During the finale of season nine of "Bachelor in Paradise," audiences learned that Brayden Bowers and Christina Mandrell had began dating off-screen.

Bowers, of Lawson's season, might have been eliminated from "Bachelor in Paradise" after failing to secure a rose, but he was still able to find love within the franchise.

During the finale of season nine of "Paradise," which aired in December 2023, it was revealed that Bowers has been dating Mandrell, from Shallcross' season, for the last few months.

"Beyond the cameras and reality show drama, Brayden (aka MY BOYFRIEND!) and I found something truly special," Mandrell wrote on Instagram.

Anna Redman and Chris Bukowski announced their relationship on Instagram in March 2022.

Redman and Bukowski, both Chicago residents, made their relationship Instagram-official in March 2022, with Redman captioning a series of photos "hard launch." They moved in together a few months later.

While these two never interacted on-screen, they're both "Bachelor" alums. Bukowski has famously has appeared on multiple seasons, including Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette," season three of "Bachelor Pad," and three seasons of "Bachelor in Paradise." He unsuccessfully attempted to join Andi Dorfman's season of "The Bachelorette" as well.

Bukowski got engaged to Katie Morton on his last appearance on "Paradise" in 2019, but they broke up a few months later, according to a since-deleted Instagram post, Bachelor Nation reported.

You might remember Redman from her controversial appearance on Matt James' season of "The Bachelor" in 2021 when she spread rumors that a fellow contestant was "entertaining men for money." She later briefly appeared on "Bachelor in Paradise" later that year.

According to an episode of Joe Amabile's podcast "Clickbait," Amabile and his wife, Serena Pitt, introduced the two.

Jordan Chapman and Corrinne Jones never appeared on-screen together, but they found love in Bachelor Nation.

Chapman and Jones, from Clayshia's season in 2020 and Matt James' season in 2021, respectively, made their Instagram debut in September 2021.

It's unclear how exactly they met, since they never overlapped on our TV screens, but Bachelor Nation is well-connected.

Peyton Wright and Chris Lambton also never interacted on-screen, but they met through friends from Bachelor Nation.

Wright and Lambton were never part of the same show — Wright appeared on the 10th season of "The Bachelor" competing for Andy Baldwin's heart in 2007, but was left behind on a two-on-one date. She later appeared on the first season of "Bachelor Pad."

Lambton, on the other hand, made it all the way to the final two in Ali Fedotowsky's season of  "The Bachelorette" in 2010, and even turned down the opportunity to be the next "Bachelor," he told Boston.com.

The two didn't find love on TV, but hit it off when they were introduced to each other by friends from the Bachelor Nation at a golf tournament in 2010, People reported in 2013.

They got married in May 2012 and have been together since.

"I'm so glad Andy Baldwin left me standing there on that aircraft carrier," Wright told People ahead of the couple's one-year anniversary in 2013. "I'm glad it didn't go any further because it wouldn't have worked out."

They have two children: a daughter, Lyla, who was born in November 2016, and a son, Hayes, who was born in December 2018.

The couple hosted the HGTV show "Going Yard," which ran for two seasons. They also collaborated with HSN on a furniture line called Chris and Peyton by Design.

Jesse Csincsak won the season of "The Bachelorette" he appeared on in 2008 and proposed to DeAnna Pappas, but the two broke up after a few months. His future wife, Ann Lueders, was eliminated on night one of Jason Mesnick's season in 2009.

The couple met on a "Bachelor" reunion cruise that Csincsak organized.

He told Hollywood 411 in 2017 that he "realized that there were a lot of women who had gone on the show who were also single and could understand what I was going through." Csincsak added that he began inviting past contestants to the reunions he hosted.

"Ann just happened to come on the first cruise I hosted to Mexico and the rest is history," he said.

Csincsak and Lueders married in 2010 while Lueders was pregnant with their first child, Noah.

According to Us Weekly, their daughter Charlotte was born three years later, and their third child Brian was born in December 2016.

Durr was eliminated after night one of Lorenzo Borghese's season of "The Bachelor" in 2006, and Presser was eliminated after night one of Jillian Harris' season of "The Bachelorette" in 2009.

According to People, they met through a private "Bachelor" alumni Facebook group in July 2009 and were engaged by February 2010. They were married later that year, in November, the St. Augustine Record reported at the time.

They have a son Warner and a daughter Ellery.
