​All ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ couples: Who stayed together?


The Bachelor fans are still reeling over season 19’s dramatic finale, which saw farmer Chris Soules propose to fertility nurse Whitney Bischoff over runner-up Becca during the final rose ceremony. Now, the couple has mutually decided to split just two months after the finale.

The indecisive bachelor from Arlington, Iowa left viewers placing bets until the very end, when 26-year-old’s Becca’s lack of certainty sealed the deal for the bubbly blond from Chicago, 29, who seemed much more confident about her eagerness to marry Chris.

Now in full swing, season 10 of The Bachelorette had a shocking new format. For the first time ever, the show pitted one woman against another during the opening night cocktail party, after which the men got to choose the lucky lady who continues on her journey to love.
