It’s been 17 years since the OG Bachelor, Alex Michel, stepped out of that famous limo to meet the group of women vying for his heart. Like many Bachelors and Bachelorettes to come, Michel did not find his wife-to-be on the highly-addictive reality show. However, there are some Bachelor couples who *have* found everlasting love. (We see you, Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter!) Peep our full gallery to find out the fate of every single Bachelor couple in franchise history. *We’re not counting post-show hook-ups among Bachelor Nation members, otherwise this gallery would have a BAJILLION slides.*
Ben Higgins and Jessica Clarke
Show + Season: The Bachelorette Season 11, The Bachelor Season 20 and Bachelor Winter Games
Actually got married? Not yet!
What went down at the finale? After appearing on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette, Ben became The Bachelor on Season 20 of the show. In the March 2016 finale, Ben proposed to Lauren Bushnell, a flight attendant from Oregon.
Where are they now? In May 2017, after over a year together (and their own reality show, Ben and Lauren, Happily Ever After?), Lauren and Ben ended their engagement. In February 2019, Ben went public with his very non-Bach nation related GF, Jessica, a fitness entrepreneur. And now, they're engaged! Ben reportedly popped the questions on March 27, in Jessica's hometown of Franklin, Tennessee, with Ben telling ET: "I was super nervous. She's my best friend, my partner and I love her. I was nervous to kind of do this whole thing in front of her. I wasn't anxious, it's just a big moment!"
