The Bachelorette has just wrapped its 10th season, with Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray engaged, moving in together, over the moon and talking about a spring wedding.

Will the Atlanta lovebirds actually make it to the altar, however?

The very first woman to star as The Bachelorette, Trista Sutter (nee Rehn), married her final rose recipient. She remains the franchise's standard-bearer.

After Trista came a long dry spell of ill-fated romances which fizzled, some after a relatively decent amount of time and others very, very quickly.

Two of the last three Bachelorette stars prior to Andi are in long-term relationships, however, as the reality show is experiencing a recent renaissance.

Where will she and Josh rank when all is said and done?

Check out this list of the 10 Bachelorette stars ranked by relationship length and see what kind of competition the ABC show's latest love match is up against:

From a matter of months to more than a decade, ABC's The Bachelorette has produced more successful relationships than its male-driven counterpart.

What's the secret to the bachelorettes' success? Well, we have no idea. 

Maybe the women are just better at picking them. Maybe the men doling out roses are just a bunch of cads (except THE Bachelor, Sean Lowe, of course). 

Whatever the reason, we tune in season after season, hoping the men are there for the right reasons, so our beautiful bachelorettes can ride off into the happily ever after sunset. 

Which of the women found love on reality TV? Who said adios during the After the Final Rose special? Let's rank the 10 Bachelorette stars in order of whose relationship lasted longest:

Former Bachelorette lovebirds Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez recently split up after an 18-month engagement, but may be back together just like that.

They allegedly hooked up at Ashley Hebert's wedding.

Ali Fedotowsky, who starred on The Bachelorette two summers ago, recently offered her views on who Emily Maynard should pick and as her lifelong mate.

"Okay, I keep going back and forth. Like, literally, I’ve changed my mind 500 times," Ali said of Emily's remaining aspiring husbands, of whom four remain.

While Ali first thought it was either Jef Holm or Arie Luyendyk, Jr., she now says she's ruled out Arie and doesn't think Jef is ready to be Ricki's stepfather.

  • Sean Lowe Picture

She likens Emily and Jef to herself and Chris Lambton, the runner-up to Roberto Martinez (who she broke up with after an 18 month-engagement) in 2010.

"This is a confusing season! She keeps saying that her relationship with Jef is slow to develop – that’s what I always used to say about Chris," says Ali.

"I mean, Chris is a great guy, such an awesome guy. But that’s like code on The Bachelorette for 'we’re really just not romantically into each other.'”

Which brings her to the pick:

"If I had to guess right now, I’m going back to Sean Lowe," the insurance salesman from Texas who moonlights as a male model, she finally answered.

The Bachelorette spoilers offer some hints as to who makes it past the hometown dates, but as far as her final rose recipient, all bets are still off!

Whom do you think Emily should end up with?

Ali Fedotowsky, the former star of The Bachelorette, looked poised to join the elite club of contestants on the ABC reality franchise to actually tie the knot with her chosen partner ... but it was not to be. She and Roberto Martinez split.

Not that she's sitting at home crying over it.

Ali has a new late night travel show, 1st Look, coming Saturdays on NBC after SNL. In an interview with SheKnows, Ali discussed the program, living the single life, controversial Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson and more ...

Hot Ali Fedotowsky

"I'm so excited," Fedotowsky said of 1st Look. "It's just the best job that I could possibly imagine. I get to travel all over the country and go to cool places."

When she’s not working, she’s enjoying life in a new city three hours north. After her split from Roberto Martinez, Ali moved from San Diego to L.A.

"I love L.A. I love the weather. I love the interesting things there are to do. And I love my apartment. It's small, and cozy and I'm doing things really girly."

One of her favorite pastimes? Watching The Bachelor with friends.

"I definitely still have Bachelor viewing parties with my girlfriends," said Ali. "I watch in different light now that I've been through it, but I do enjoy watching it still."

Ali revealed that despite the backlash last season’s winner, Courtney Robertson, has received, she found the Santa Monica model to be nice in real life.

The Bachelorette's newly-minited star, Emily Maynard, was spotted bonding in L.A. with two women who have been in her shoes: Ali Fedotowsky and Ashley Hebert!

The reality star joined Ali and Ashley for a makeup appointment and some chitchat at Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge in West Hollywood ... obviously.

According to a source, the ladies were talking about the ABC reality show, wth Ali Fedotowsky and Ashley Hebert giving Maynard advice about what to expect.

"All three ladies got along so great," a source says.

  • Bachelorettes
  • Emily M.

"The ladies were really cute together; they joked around and ... were all in very good moods – energetic and excited about being in each other's company."

After the makeup session, the women filmed a promo for Emily Maynards Bachelorette season to air during the February 27 episode of The Bachelor.

The following week is The Bachelor season finale. Our Bachelor spoilers page has the latest scoop on what (we think) plays out with Ben Flajnik's season.

The women of The Bachelorette? Not unattractive.

With a new season of The Bachelor underway, it's only fitting, sort of, that three well-known cast members who went on to dole out the roses themselves cover In Touch Weekly, baring their bikini bodies and sharing their weight loss plans and tips.

Okay, it makes no sense. But who's complaining?

Bachelorette In Touch Cover

Ashley Hebert, who dispatched current Bachelor Ben Flajnik last summer, is prepping for her wedding to JP Rosenbaum with a low-carb diet. Sounds amazing.

Ali Fedotowsky, now single and ready to mingle after calling off her engagement to Roberto Martinez, is targeting thigh and butt jiggle. It looks well targeted.

Trista Sutter, the standard bearer for successful relationships spawned by a nonsensical reality show, still looks amazing - yet is contemplating a boob job.

Not that she needs it and not that you can believe anything you read in In Touch, but that's all we've got for now. Just sit back and enjoy the bikini photos.

After meeting fiance Roberto Martinez on The Bachelorette, then experiencing an epic courtship, Ali Fedotowsky said she was ready to marry him, and quickly.

Fast forward a year and a half, and it's over.

The pair had a nice run by Bachelorette standards (18 months qualifies as a long-term relationship by any measure), but she broke up with Roberto last week.

Now, in People's new cover story, Ali explains why.

Ali F., Roberto M.

"I wouldn't be being truthful if I said this came out of nowhere," a tearful Fedotowsky said, reflecting on the rocky times she and Roberto endured of late.

"We definitely were having problems. But I always believed we could work it out."

Despite putting the brakes on their fast-tracked wedding plans last year, and then twice more postponing plans to walk down the aisle with Roberto, Ali says they did make a concerted effort to stay together and to weather the tough times.

In spite of that, their arguments continued, and worsened at that.

"We both realized we were unhappy more than we were happy," says Ali, in a candid take of a romance born on a show so often phony. "And we both deserved more"

Sad news from The Bachelorette world today, as 2010's engaged pair ... no longer is.

"Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship," their rep said. "As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple's privacy."

The duo's romance unfolded in 2010 on the sixth season of the reality show, when she sent home Chris Lambton and accepted Roberto's proposal on the season finale.

In October, Ali Fedotowsky downplayed rumors that their relationship was on the rocks, saying there were other reasons for putting their wedding plans on hold.

"We didn't meet in the most traditional way. We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged," Fedotowsky said.

"We are still figuring out our lives as individuals."

The 27-year-old maintained she had still planned to tie the knot with her former fiancé. "We're still engaged, we're still living together," she said at the time.

No more. Are you surprised their relationship unraveled? In the grand scheme, dating for a year and a half is pretty successful by Bachelor standards ...

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez got engaged on The Bachelorette season finale in the summer of 2010, with the actual proposal taking place months earlier.

They've been together the whole time since, living in San Diego and going about their lives. But with no wedding on the horizon, is there trouble afoot?

According to Us Weekly, more than you even KNOW.

While Ali Fedotowsky has blamed the postponements on scheduling conflicts and a bad kickboxing injury, "pals" say their issues run way deeper than that.

"Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one," a mutual friend says of the pair, whose nuptials were supposed to be an ABC Bachelorette special.

Due to both of them working long hours and other stresses taking their toll on the couple, "They're either extremely happy or can't stand each other."

"They bring out the worst in each other," the source adds, noting that after one spat, "Ali was in tears ... she's miserable in the relationship and he is too."

For what it's worth, Ali seemed very happy in her interview with THG this summer, and this is the first we've heard of any strife between them. Time will tell.
