All the Besties Who Found Love with Each Other *Instead* of the Dude on The Bachelor

These women went on The Bachelor and ended up walking away with a BFF instead of Mr. Right—and their friendships are why we believe in love, tbh

Being on The Bachelor and part of Bachelor Nation is good for exactly two and a half things. The first is getting a surge in Instagram followers, of course. The second, and most important, is that you get a once in a lifetime opportunity to find that special person who will be there for you forever, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, ‘til death do you part—your long-lost soul sister, obviously! ‘Cause 20-odd women cooped up in a mansion for two months with no access to the outside world is bound to make for some unbreakable friendships.

(Editor’s note: The added possibility of actually developing a long-lasting relationship with the Bachelor himself is the final half, and it’s more like a bonus than anything else, plus it’s just half a thing since most of those relationships end prematurely anyway and, duh, a newfound bestie is what’s really important here.)

Let’s meet the *real* Bachelor couples we ship!
