Since The Bachelorette premiered over a decade ago, there have been more than a dozen women who looked for love on the show. But “Who’s still together from The Bachelorette?” is the real question.
The Bachelorette premiered in January 2003 with Trista Rehn as Bachelor Nation’s first-ever female lead. Trista was the runner-up on season 1 of The Bachelor with Alex Michel. And it’s a good thing that Alex didn’t pick her, as Trista (and her husband Ryan) became one of the most successful couples from the franchise. Not only are they married (the two tied the knot in Bachelor Nation’s first-ever televised wedding, we might add), but Trista and Ryan also share two beautiful children.
Since the first season of The Bachelorette, there have been many women who have given out roses on the show. While some have been success stories (such as season 13’s Rachel Lindsay and season 9’s Desiree Hartsock), there have been many Bachelorettes whose relationships just didn’t work out. (Season 15’s Hannah Brown ended her engagement to her winner, Jed Wyatt, before her finale even aired. Ouch.)
Ahead, we looked back at every couple and winner from The Bachelorette to see where they are now. Find out who’s still together.
Season 1: Trista Rehn & Ryan Sutter
Status: Married with children
Trista was the first-ever Bachelorette in 2003. Trista was chosen as the Bachelorette after she came in second on season 1 of The Bachelor with Alex Michel.

The two tied the knot in the franchise’s first-televised wedding, which consisted of three episodes, in 2003. The two are parents to two kids: daughter Blakesley, who was born in 2009, and daughter Maxwell, who was born in 2007.
Season 2: Meredith Phillips & Ian McKee
Meredith came in fourth place on season 4 of The Bachelor with Bob Guinney. She became the season 2 Bachelorette and got engaged to her winner, Ian McKee, in the finale.

He proposes again in the “After the Final Rose” special, but she rejects it a second time and tells him that they’re better as friends. “I think that you know I was so committed to this — I hope that you know that — and I really tried to make it work, but I think we talked a lot, and we saw each other, and I think that we both came to the realization that we were better as friends,” she said. She married businessman Joe Waterman in 2009. The two share two daughters, Charlotte and Mae.

After eight years of marriage, the couple announced their divorce in 2020. “I think we’ve both come to realize that we are just two very different people, with very different personalities and perspectives, who just don’t see eye to eye on a lot life fundamentals, those which are the building blocks for a happy and healthy marriage,” J.P. wrote.

On night one, the contestants chose between Kaitlyn and Nilsson (another contestant from Chris Soules’ Bachelor season) as their permanent Bachelorette. Kaitlyn won over Britt and went on to accept a proposal from Shawn Booth in the finale. The couple split in 2018, three years after their season. “Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time,” the two wrote in a statement at the time. Kaitlyn went on to date Jason Tartick, who came in third on The Bachelorette season 14 with Becca Kufrin.
Season 12: JoJo Fletcher & Jordan Rodgers
Caila Quinn, who came in third on season 20 of The Bachelor with Ben Higgins, was originally chosen as the season 12 Bachelorette.

Season 13: Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo
Rachel came in third on season 21 of The Bachelor with Nick Viall. She went on to become the season 13 Bachelorette, making her the franchise’s first-ever Black lead.

Season 14: Becca Kufrin & Garrett Yrigoyen
Becca was originally chosen by Arie Luyendyk Jr. as the winner of The Bachelor season 22. However, after she got engaged in the finale, Arie changed his mind and chose his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. Becca then became the season 14 Bachelorette and got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. The two were engaged for two years before their breakup in 2020. Their breakup came after Garrett’s controversial comments about Black Lives Matter.
“I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” Becca said on an episode of her podcast, “Bachelor Happy Hour,” at the time. “After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details. It’s no one’s business other than what I’m telling you right now.”
Season 15: Hannah Brown & Jed Wyatt
Hannah B., who came in fifth on season 23 of The Bachelor with Colton Underwood, got engaged to Jed Wyatt on the season 15 finale of The Bachelorette. However, as their season aired, reports came out that Jed had a girlfriend he hadn’t broken up with yet before Hannah’s season. The news led Hannah to end their engagement, which was filmed for her season’s “After the Final Rose” special.
Season 16: Clare Crawley & Dale Moss
Before Clare’s season of The Bachelorette premiered in 2020, news broke that she left in the middle of the season to be with her winner, Dale. (Tayshia Adams, a runner-up from season 23 of The Bachelor, went on to replace her.) Life & Style reported at the time that Clare—the season 16 Bachelorette and Juan Pablo Galavis’ runner-up on The Bachelor season 17—had accepted Dale’s proposal and the two got engaged. “She told producers she no longer wanted to participate in the show,” a source told Life & Style at the time.
