The Bachelor is a long-running reality TV show on ABC that never actually results in lasting relationships. Recent stars of The Bachelor...

The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis and his final rose recipient Nikki Ferrell are on Couples Therapy these days, and their situation hasn't changed much.

In fact, if you watch Couples Therapy online, you'll wonder how the heck these people are even together ... which is what we thought on The Bachelor, too.

If anything, last night's Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 5 was a true low point, simply because it showed us how little has changed in six months plus.

Every glimpse we get of their relationship makes us less invested in them, and more concerned for Nikki's self-esteem for putting up with this dude somehow.

Not that she's coming across as a real prize either, the way she complaints 24/7 about cameras following her and acts like she doesn't want to be there.

On a VH1 reality show that SHE SIGNED ON FOR.

That card didn't work on The Bachelor, but one could at least buy the notion that behind closed doors, perhaps they were private people who were truly happy.

No longer. It's as bad as we thought, if not worse.

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis of The Bachelor and now Couples Therapy fame face an uncertain future, and not because of any sort of cheating or scandal.

No, it's a tried and true relationship-killer that does in many duos every day, and that may soon claim another victim in the controversial reality TV pair:

Long distance.

Juan Pablo Galavis, Nikki Ferrell, Daughter

As we learned last week on Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4, Nikki is still waiting to be "chosen" by Juan Pablo even though she won The Bachelor.

Meanwhile, the pressures of fatherhood, in addition to whatever his personal attitude toward relationships might, keeps Juan from making any moves.

Quite literally.

Nikki Ferrell broke down on the show, admitting that being closer together - she's in Kansas City, he's in Miami - might be the only way this is going to work.

The Bachelor stars and embattled lovers Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have a breakdown, but later a breakthrough, on Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4.

Watch her get emotional in this talk with Dr. Jenn Berman as she finally admits why she has her guard up, and what's been hanging over her head for months ...

If you watched The Bachelor, you have to kinda sorta feel bad for Nikki Ferrell, even though she is far from perfect and dating Juan Pablo by choice.

Watching him give her the final rose, but no engagement ring or even the words “I love you,” rubbed many viewers the wrong way earlier this year.

Equally bizarre? Her willingness to defend him and even emulate her boyfriend's bitterness toward the reality show they signed up for in the first place.

Clearly, the pediatric nurse from Kansas City isn't truly happy with the way things are going with El Bachelor, and Dr. Jenn finally got that out of her.

Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul got engaged on the Bachelor in Paradise season finale, but is there already trouble in paradise for the attractive duo?

Recent reports suggest that Marcus is dating around after proposing to Lacy. Could this revelation spell the end of their whirlwind romance and engagement?

The other woman in Marcus’ life, allegedly, is Sydney Rae James, who insiders claim assumed that her new beau’s relationship with Lacy was already over.

Of course, she assumed that, having seen him get engaged on The Bachelor and Bachelorette spinoff on ABC. Why would he ask her out otherwise?

On the flip side ... how could this not have come up!?

On the flip flip side ... it's Bachelor In Paradise. Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul got engaged after like a month. Then they went back to real life.

Crazier assumptions have been made. Just saying.

Says a source who dished on Syd's alleged date:

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell appeared on the premiere of VH1's Couples Therapy Wednesday night, and it was literally painful to watch.

Seriously, if you watch The Bachelor, you know how indescribably bad he was on that? Well, this is probably worse, because he's almost more earnest.

Normally that's a good thing, but with Juan Pablo? Being more earnest just means being even more open and honest about what a douche he is.

Remember when Juan Pablo Galavis non-proposed to Nikki Ferrell and didn't tell her he loved her, but she agreed to stay with him on the finale?

Well, that was then and ... it's also now. On Couples Therapy, we learn that he still hasn't done so, and still has no idea (or concern) about Nikki's feelings.

Dr. Jenn Berman, the soothing counseling and reality show host, asked Juan Pablo gently on the premiere what he thinks about the duo's future.

“I haven’t thought about it,” he says.

Words fail us at this point, honestly.

The Bachelor's Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe are head over heels in love, enjoying marriage, and looking to start a family sooner rather than later.

Not shocking if you know Sean and Catherine. These two basically reside on Cloud Nine, which might get irritating if it weren't so darned adorable.

So when are the lovebirds thinking about procreating?

"Eventually," Catherine said when asked that very question. "Not like in the next couple months, but we're definitely thinking about it in the next year or so."

Sean Lowe, Giudici's husband of nearly nine months, said that "we're all over the place" with travel plans, but that it's in the cards for them, and soon.

If you watch The Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise, you know that relationships which thrive on ABC don't always continue to do so in the "real world."

Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 7 marked the finale for the inaugural trip to Paradise - but you can rest assured, ABC has already green lit Season 2.

How did the first one end? Who found love, who left disappointed and what epic twists awaited for the cast members who made it this far on the series?

Follow the link to watch Bachelor in Paradise online, then continue on as we recap the shenanigans from start to finish below ... and there were plenty:

No more date cards, no more new arrivals, and no more rose ceremonies. It's all about the relationships and it is ultimatum time. The duos have a choice:

Commit to a real relationship, or pack up and GTFO.

Certainly changes the nature of the game, doesn't it. So who's out and who's all in? Let's break down the six couples who came into the finale together ...

Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd: Engaged!

Marcus professed his love for Lacy several weeks ago, and she finally follows suit in the finale, telling him she's all in ... and then he does her one better.

They're about to do the final exchange of roses when Marcus asks for a minute alone with Lacy. He gets down and asks, "So, Lacy, will you marry me?"

Bachelor in Paradise is returning to ABC, and also to paradise, come summer 2015.

ABC has ordered a second season of the spinoff series that finds The Bachelor and The Bachelorette alumni living together in a tropical setting.

As they look for love, drama and utter nonsense ensues. But darned if it's not fun!

Bachelor in Paradise Crew

Paradise is something of a replacement for Bachelor Pad, the summer competition spinoff that aired for three seasons (2010-12) before getting axed.

The Pad was all about Big Brother-style games and trying to win money, whereas Paradise is all about love (though confusing rules apply to both throughout).

The news comes on the heels of confirmation that the network named Chris Soules The Bachelor for its 19th (yes, 19th) season, kicking off in January.

And just as ABC renewed Bachelor in Paradise, its inaugural finale airs tonight.

Is Jesse Kovacs the biggest loser in the history of The Bachelor franchise?

Juan Pablo Galavis won't be watching the ABC show, but he should be grateful it's on, because Kovacs is certainly making a strong argument for that title.

Compared to this douche, JPG is looking like a standup individual.

Jesse Kovacs Pic

If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you know it's hard to take seriously. Still, some participants seem at least moderately interested in finding love.

Or at least they're open to the idea of it. Jesse Kovacs, on the other hand?

He's there for free booze and to get his joint worked around the clock.

Having likely succeeded in getting it in with Christy, Michelle, and Lacy (remember last week's Jesse Kovacs threesome?), his house of cards collapsed Monday.

With news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are married (SURPRISE!) we started thinking about the many, many celebrity weddings we've witnessed over the years.

And man, have we witnessed a lot of celebrity weddings!

Some stars have even managed to get married more than once recently coughKimK​cough leading us to take a look at some of the best celebrity wedding dresses we've ever seen:

Kate Middleton Wedding Dress
Wow. That's all we can say about Kate Middleton's wedding dress. She looks simply stunning.

Regardless, when brides like Kate Middleton step out in front of the cameras, the world takes notice. Likewise with famous faces such as Kaley Cuoco and Kim Kardashian.

It's no surprise that their fancy frocks fuel an entire industry, because what woman doesn't want to look like a LITERAL princess on her big day?

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
