‘The Bachelorette’: Have Any of the Couples Gotten Divorced?
As viewers prepare to watch a new season of The Bachelorette, it’s important to remember the seasons that came before it. The franchise has gifted fans with so many couples from The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, and Bachelor in Paradise. Many of the couples who met on these shows called it quits before they ever made it down the aisle. But have any of the ones who said “I do” later changed their minds?
Who has gotten married?
The Bachelorette got off to a good start with Trista Rehn and Ryan Stutter meeting on the first season and getting married in 2003. The two are still together. Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney from The Bachelor got married in 2010. Ashley Herbert and J.P. Rosenbaum were wed in 2012, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici were married in 2014, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried tied the knot in 2015 and Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham were married in 2019 after Luyendyk broke off his engagement with Becca Kufrin. Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasalo were also married that year.
When it comes to spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, a few couples have also made it down the aisle. Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert got married in 2016 and now have two children. Carly Waddell And Evan Bass met on season 3 of the show and are now married with two kids. Ashley Iaconetti And Jared Haibon met on season 2 of the show and after a series of makeups and breakups got married in 2019.
Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone met on season 5 and returned the next season to get married.
Have any of ‘The Bachelor’ couples gotten divorced?
Bachelor nation is now experiencing its first divorce. Though Nielson and Randone were just married last season, they have already called it quits.
“It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate,” the two said in a joint statement on the Bachelor Nation blog. “Never did we imagine this scenario, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves. We are best friends that love and care for each other so deeply. We’ve appreciated everyone’s love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this.”
Are Krystal and Chris still friends?
Since filing for divorce, Randone and Nielson haven’t kept in touch.
“We don’t talk at all,” Randone said on Blake Horstmann’s Behind The Rose podcast. “This is nothing against her, but even throughout this entire time, she never even called me once to see how I’ve been doing, how I’m feeling.”
Even though Nielson has moved on from the relationship, Randone still thought she would have reached out at some point.
“If a person cares about you, they’ll let it be known, or if they want to talk to you, they’ll find time to talk to you,” he said. “It hasn’t been like that. I don’t think we might ever exchange a word again. It’s almost as if the relationship never existed.”
Things between them have gotten so bad that it’s almost like the marriage wasn’t legitimate.
“It’s something where the wedding doesn’t even seem like it happened,” he said. “My memories with my family don’t seem like they happened. It’s just wild because it just doesn’t seem like it was even real.”
