‘The Bachelor’: These Couples Are Still Together in 2022
Fans recently watched the conclusion of Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor. Clayton surprised everyone after a rollercoaster ride of a journey when he and Susie Evans announced they had reunited after the finale. The couple is still together, and Clayton moved to Virginia to avoid a long-distance romance. However, as of now, they’re only dating, and Clayton hasn’t proposed. Let’s take a look at which of the couples from The Bachelor are still together in 2022.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney from ‘The Bachelor’ Season 13
When it comes to dramatic finales of The Bachelor, Jason’s might rank as number one. Jason proposed to Melissa Rycroft during his season’s finale, but he shocked everyone during his “After the Final Rose” episode when he broke up with Melissa on live TV. As if breaking Melissa’s heart in front of a live audience wasn’t bad enough, he immediately asked runner-up Molly Malaney if she wanted to get back together. Molly and Jason are now married and have a daughter together.
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici from season 17
Sean first appeared on Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette, but when Emily rejected him, he nabbed the coveted lead in The Bachelor Season 17. During his season, Sean fell hard for Catherine Giudici and proposed to her during the finale in Thailand. The couple has remained strong throughout the years and often pops up on current seasons of the show to give other Bachelor hopefuls advice on how to make things work.
Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham from season 22
Folks watching The Bachelor Season 22 may have gotten some deja vu from Arie’s season. The finale played out similarly to Jason Mesnick’s when Arie first proposed to Becca Kufrin. Arie then decided Becca wasn’t the one for him and broke up with her on television. Fans watched, horrified, as Becca and Arie’s emotional breakup happened before their eyes. To make matters worse, Arie went after his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, almost immediately.
After filming ended, Arie and Lauren rekindled their romance. During the “After the Final Rose” episode, Arie proposed to Lauren, and she accepted. Arie and Lauren had two weddings to celebrate their relationship. Their first wedding took place in Hawaii, while the second one was a vow renewal in Vegas to celebrate the birth of their first daughter. The married couple now has three children together and is still going strong.
Matt James and Rachel Kirkconnell from ‘The Bachelor’ Season 25
Matt made history as the first Black male lead in The Bachelor franchise. However, his season suffered from several unflattering incidents. The show decided to introduce five new women into the fold a few weeks into filming, which sent the women into a panic. Plus, the season’s villain, Victoria Larson, made everyone’s life pretty miserable. On top of that, racially insensitive photos of Rachel attending an Antebellum-themed party in college surfaced midway through the season. Matt did not propose to Rachel during the finale of The Bachelor Season 25. Although, the two eventually rekindled their relationship. As of now, the couple is still happily together.
