Whether you are happily coupled up or enjoying the single life, watching other people try and find romance can be a great pastime. The awkward first kiss, the “ground, please swallow me up” silences, and the constant questioning by friends and family are enough to make anyone embarrassed – so it’s even better when it’s broadcast on national television for the world to see! Dating shows are in their plenty, with the likes of ‘Beauty and the Geek,’ ‘Blind Date,’ and ‘A Double Shot at Love’ having all put their own spin on the dating life over the years, there is always one show that stands out above all the rest.

Alex Michel – now

Getting back to business, Alex has since become a spokesperson for Princess Cruises and Match.com (not that he seems to be having luck with his own dating life!). Alex is one for privacy though, appearing to have no social media and fading from public view!

Amanda Marsh – then

Amanda and Alex started dating after she won Alex’s heart – not enough for a ring though! The two broke up a year later amidst rumors he still had feelings for the season’s runner-up, perhaps she knows where Alex has disappeared off to?

Trista Rehn – then

The 28-year old banker was star bachelor of season 2 of our favorite dating show. Aaron chose Helene as his partner and proposed in the finale of the show. The couple, however, broke up in the following weeks after just three short months together. Ouch!

Currently, Aaron is successfully running a family bank. He has since gone on to marry wife Angye McIntosh, an insurance agent, in 2008. The couple has also welcomed their daughter, Aven, into the world. The family live in Missouri and have found their happy ending.

Kirsten Buschbacher – now

The last thing we heard, Kristen has made a move to the Big Apple in search of a career on the stage! Kirsten is a hard one to track down, but we hope that whatever she has decided to do she is happy, and hopefully found some love.

Season 4: Bob Guiney – then

Bob landed his role as the bachelor after being booted off The Bachelorette earlier in the year. This dark-haired charmer chose Estelle to hand his ring to, but she chose a promise ring instead to declare they would date not get engaged – ouch!

Estella Gardinier – Then

Estella was working as a sales representative during her time on the show. She asked Bob to buy her a promise ring over an engagement ring as she only wanted to date the bachelor, and ended up calling off their relationship just weeks after the show wrapped up. Awkwaaaard.

 

Estella Gardinier – now

It appears now as though Estella may still be single after her swift public relationship with Steve Holy back in 2004. Teaching pilates and yoga, and being a full-time fitness trainer, seems like enough to keep Estella busy nowadays.

Kelly Jo Kuharski – then

On the show, Kelly was not welcomed by Bob’s mother after she was taken by the bachelor to meet his family. That’s got to be pretty upsetting. She reported as being heartbroken after the finale that saw her leaving engagement-less.

Jessica was the lucky winner of Jesse’s heart (confusing enough?), but the dream team was apparently not meant to last! The couple continued to date after there was no engagement but broke up shortly after leaving the show.

Now

Jessica has now married her other half, Omar Rawi, and seems to be enjoying her new family life. Having earned her law degree since the show, the couple has since welcomed two children into the world. A happy ending for one Jess at least.

Tara Huckeby – then

It seemed as though this 23-year old at the time had it written in the stars as she and Jesse fell for each other on the show. Jesse’s dad even told him to chose Tara, but unfortunately for her, she was not the one in his heart after all.

Tara Huckeby – now

Following on from her dramatic exit from the show that saw Tara cause a scene as she left, she has done everything she can to stay out of the limelight. It appears as though life in the spotlight may not have been the one for Tara!

Season 6: Byron Velvick – then

Byron was 40-years old and a professional fisherman when he made his appearance on the show and went on to chose Mary Delgado as his partner. The two continued to date after the show, but it wouldn’t be a smooth ride for the pair…

Season 7: Charlie O’Connell – then

This actor walked in as bachelor number seven to the show. After Charlie’s initial round of body shots that commenced with the potential girls on the show, he was set to cause a stir with his partying ways!


Charlie O’Connell – now

After the on again off again relationship between Charlie and winner Sarah Brice, he has moved on to date Anna Sophia Berglund, a Playboy model. Charlie has continued to act over the years and is now sober from alcohol. Maybe the body shots did it.

Travis was working as a resident in a local hospital at the time of the show. Season 8 didn’t see Travis become a doctor of love though, as he chose Sarah Stone to leave with, but the two split up a week after the show aired. That’s quick, even for The Bachelor.

Season 10: Andrew Baldwin – then

Andrew Baldwin – now

Andrew is currently single, so ladies, there’s an opening! He was briefly involved in a relationship with Dancing With the Stars dancer Karina Smirnoff, but in recent times he appears to have remained alone…Although, we’re sure this dry spell won’t last long.

Shayne Lamas – now

Shayne has, unfortunately, had some minor troubles with the law, but has since set herself straight. Astoundingly, she and husband Nik Richie knew each other for mere hours before getting hitched. They have gone on to have two children together, so must have done something right!

Chelsea Wanstrath – then

In a bid to win over the British stud, Chelsea entered season 12 of The Bachelor. She was working as a pharmaceutical rep and was the favorite of the two to win, even thinking she was the one that was going to win Matt’s heart! Oh, how wrong we were…

Now

Chelsea keeps the world updated through her social media accounts, especially Instagram! Here she is often seen posting photos of her many outdoor adventures, with plenty of snaps to make anyone jealous. It doesn’t appear as though Chelsea is dating right now.

Juan Pablo Galavis – now

Clare Crawley – now

Clare has made attempts over the years to find romance on The Bachelor’s spin-off shows but hasn’t been lucky so far. Moving back to Sacramento, Clare has returned to the world of hairstyling rather than attempting any more dating shows.
