Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

These two lasted about four minutes.


Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

14. Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

Juan Pablo's now-infamous non-proposal made him persona non grata for many fans, but he and winner Nikki Ferrell are still together and - gasp - happy.


  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

Courtney Robertson isn't the most beloved girl to take part on The Bachelor. Okay, she's one of the least beloved. But boy, was she ever talked about!

Perhaps not surprisingly (except for the fact that we expected it to happen earlier), the MODEL is penning a tell-all book about her time on the series.

Courtney Robertson won The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik's hand in marriage in 2011, only to break up with him after a year or so in October 2012.

In the aftermath, she of course landed a book deal for a work entitled I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain.

"Going on The Bachelor was the most amazing opportunity I've ever had, but I did not have a fairy tale ending!" Court tells celeb gossip magazine Us.

Even Ben Flajnik had to see the light sooner or later.

The Bachelor star admits, supposedly, in a new interview what everyone said about Courtney Robertson from the moment she debuted on the ABC show.

She lies. And kind of sucks.

And Ben, who's rumored to be getting a new reality show focused on his winery business, wants the women whose opinions he ignored to know he’s sorry.

Courtney, who recently split with Bachelor fiance Ben Flajnik, notes that Arie is a nice change. “I was miserable with Ben; he treated me so badly,” she says.

Ouch. She had been planning to move to San Francisco to be with The Bachelor star, “but he was all like, ‘I just turned 30, and I’m not ready,’” she adds.

Courtney Robertson is speaking out about her split from Ben Flajnik, blaming the long-distance factor for the end of The Bachelor stars' relationship.

Of course, if you're engaged, don't you typically move in with your fiance?

"Our relationship has been tested pretty much the entire time we’ve been together,” she confides. “When I stayed [with Ben] for long periods of time, it helped."

"I think if we’d lived together, we wouldn’t have broken up.”

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson haven't been heard from for awhile, which is probably a good thing, considering the negative press they got earlier this year.

Even before The Bachelor star proposed to the brunette model during the show's March finale, they were inundated with an avalanche of bad publicity.

Now that it's been five months, it appears the embattled couple is going as strong as ever, and may be finally thinking about their nuptials to boot.

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson Twitpic

Via Twitter on Friday, Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik shared pics of their visit to Baker Beach in San Francisco, Calif., where the couple resides.

Both of them suggested that it'd make a perfect wedding venue.

"Should we get married here? ;) a picture of Courtney and I observing a wedding," Ben posted with a pic of himself, Courtney and his dog Scotch.

Added his model fiancee: "I love this candid photo of my boys playing at Baker Beach this morning! I am in love with this place, first time here."

"I think this would be a fun place for a wedding @BenFlajnik ;)"

Almost as soon as Robertson accepted Flajnik's proposal, the couple said there was no date set and they were taking it slow for the foreseeable future.

That seems to have been a good plan for them, if they're still happy and talking about weddings. What do you think, Bachelor fans? Will it last?
