Maurissa didn’t receive much screen time on her original season of The Bachelor. The 25-year-old bachelorette first appeared in Peter Weber’s season. But Peter eliminated Maurissa on the first night.

Meanwhile, Riley made more of a splash on Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette. Riley slowly developed a solid relationship with Tayshia, and he became a fan-favorite.
