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:

DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano of The Bachelor and Bachelorette fame are parents for the first time! The couple welcomed a little girl last week.

Stagliano tweeted the joyous announcement on Saturday.

“Our little angel is here! She was born on Feb. 6th," the 30-year-old posted. “Daddy now has two loves in his life! Thank you all for the love and support.”

Stagliano announced the baby’s gender via Twitter, “We couldn’t wait…so we scheduled another ultra sound this afternoon… and we saw a… GIRL!!!! #BabyStag.”

The couple met because of The Bachelorette.

She starred on the popular ABC reality show, and Steve's twin brother, Michael, was a contestant on Jillian Harris' season (on which Stephen had a cameo).

Michael also went on to win Bachelor Pad.

Former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano, are married!

The couple wed Saturday in her home state of Georgia.

DeAnna Pappas, 29, walked down the aisle in a strapless Disney Bridal wedding gown with a birdcage veil and cowboy boots. "They were giddy with excitement," an observer at the unforgettable affair said. "She looked incredibly happy."

Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, his then-fiance and also a contestant on The Bachelor, originally set the couple up. Stephen proposed in August 2010.

Durst and Michael Stagliano went on to win Bachelor Pad this summer, but he was caught off guard by her engagement to cast member Blake Julian.

Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack the first time he starred on The Bachelor, became The Bachelorette and got engaged to Jesse Csincsak.

That did not last long. But this one's gonna be forever!

Three great guys remain after last night's hometown dates, and The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky faces tougher and tougher decisions every week.

But former star DeAnna Pappas is totally on Team Roberto.

"They have so much chemistry," she says of Ali and Roberto Martinez, whose time in his native Tampa, Fla., featured a (literal) trip around the bases.

"You can tell she really likes him," DeAnna says. "When she gave him a hug and straddled him... He's good looking and seems like the total package."

"His family was wonderful and [Ali] seemed comfortable."

Will the season end with an Ali Fedotowsky-Roberto Martinez engagement?

"Ali is still a little standoffish with everyone," DeAnna Pappas adds, noting that the star seems nervous. "But for Roberto, I think, she's coming around. They're holding hands more, she's cuddling more, and the kisses seem more natural."

She also had high marks for Ali's Cape Cod visit with Chris Lambton: "They had a nice little makeout session at the end. He climbs higher and higher in my book. I think the chemistry is growing, but at first it was hard to tell."

"At least on Chris' part ... I think he's a great candidate for The Bachelor."

No arguments here.

"As much as I like Chris L., I don't think she chooses him in the end," Pappas adds. "I think Chris is the safer choice, but she's infatuated with Roberto."

As for the third man left standing, Frank Neuschaefer, DeAnna says run for it! "Frank is leading her on," Pappas says. Where would she get that idea?

Who should Ali choose on The Bachelorette?

DeAnna Pappas, the former star of The Bachelorette, is not only dating Stephen Stagliano, the brother of a former contestant on the show, they are engaged.

Supposedly. And planning to wed. Like soon.

DeAnna and Stephen, whose brother Michael pined for Jillian Harris on her season of The Bachelorette, were fixed up by his twin and his girlfriend, Holly Durst.

Holly was let go by Matt Grant when she was a contestant on The Bachelor, and also dated Jesse Csincsak, who got engaged to DeAnna on her season finale.

We know, it's really confusing.

The Bachelorette castoff Michael Stagliano, left, set his brother up with DeAnna Pappas. She was previously engaged to Jesse Csincsak, but that didn't last long.

As for DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano's wedding, it's supposedly imminent, although specifics aren't exactly available, courtesy of anonymous sources.

Take it with a grain of salt is all we're saying.

Hopefully, hosting her Lifetime series Get Married, where she offers wedding advice and tips to brides-to-be, will help prepare DeAnna for her own big day.

Yes, DeAnna Pappas hosts a show about weddings, despite two failed attempts at marriage proposals on national TV ... is this a great country or what?!

The lovely D is currently back home in Georgia where plans for the quickie wedding "is all they're talking about." Congratulations if this is in any way true!

DeAnna Pappas wishes nothing but the best for The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris, who recently moved to Chicago to live with fiance Ed Swiderski.

She's just not sure it's gonna work out.

"I do hope it works out for them; the odds are against them," DeAnna told Us Weekly, though she did add that the couple is doing better than ever.

"Supposedly Jillan and Ed are still together, and head over heels in love. I haven't hung out with them, but we have mutual friends, and they say they are crazy about each other," Jillian's Bachelorette predecessor added.

"It seems to be working so far."

It was a difficult summer for Jillian and Ed, thanks to rumors that he slept with Lindsey Johnson a week after proposing to her on the reality show.

Another woman, Bethany Steffen, says he tried to get in her pants a week later. DeAnna Pappas' take? She wasn't that surprised by the report.

DeAnna Pappas, who famously chose the wrong guy on The Bachelorette finale, won't say if Ed was the wrong pick for Jillian. But she wasn't a big fan of Swiderski.

"I wasn't an Ed fan while [Jillian Harris] was filming the show," she said. "I think some people go on [The Bachelorette] with different intentions."

"Maybe they are not open in the beginning what their intentions are," she told Us Weekly, without elaborating. "So in the end, you get duped."

Another controversial reality couple from The Bachelor franchise's recent history, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, also still on, Pappas reports.

"They are so happy, and I do think that they are going to get married," she said of the two. "They really just get each other, it works for them."

Will Jillian and Ed last?

It's down to Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke (with Reid Rosenthal possibly to return and join the party) in the fight for Jillian Harris' love on The Bachelorette.

Who's The Bachelorette gonna pick? There are arguments (and spoilers) that suggest all three - but Jillian's predecessor, DeAnna Pappas, thinks she knows.

"I think she's going to chose Ed," DeAnna, who chose Jesse Csincsak over Jason Mesnick last season, tells Extra. "She's only had eyes for Ed from day one."

Jillian Harris, Ed Swiderski

In addition to predicting a proposal by Ed Swiderski, DeAnna Pappas also thinks that Jillian regrets letting bad boy Texas musician Wes Hayden into her life.

"I'm sure Jillian is sitting at home [watching the show] going, 'Why did I let him get past night one?'" said DeAnna, who was interviewed for some reason.

DeAnna admits it was a big challenge to confront the dismissed suitors for the taping of "The Men Tell All" special, confessing that she was "extremely nervous" and had "really strong feelings" for the final four bachelors.

The traditional "The Men Tell All" special airs this Monday, July 20, with no Wes Hayden or Reid Rosenthal on attendance. Reid's absence has sparked The Bachelorette spoilers that the ousted suitor makes a return on the big finale.

The season finale airs Monday, July 27.

Who will win The Bachelorette?

Former star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas didn’t get her fairy-tale ending after enduring two seasons on the reality TV shows.

But that hasn’t stopped her from helping other frazzled brides-to-be plan their big day as the host of Get Married, a wedding advice show that airs on Lifetime.

She's definitely got the right experience! Oh, wait.

In an interview with People, DeAnna Pappas, 27, chatted about weddings, why she and ex Jesse Csincsak broke up, and her much-anticipated visit to The Bachelor pad now inhabited by her Bachelorette runner-up, Jason Mesnick.

Q: Tell us about your new co-hosting gig on Get Married?

DeAnna Pappas: It is the bride’s guide to getting married, from finding the right dress and invitations to writing vows, picking a cake and planning the honeymoon. The show handles broad topics and refers viewers to the site GetMarried.com where they can find local vendors and even more tips. My co-host Colin Cowie and I also have blogs on the site. Me, I just talk about everyday life and my ongoing quest for love.

Q: Why did you want to host this show?

DeAnna Pappas: When the opportunity first came about, I was engaged, and when the president of the company contacted me in Colorado, I thought I could learn something [for my wedding] and follow my TV hosting dream. I flew back home to Atlanta and met with her. It is a very close-knit family, a comfortable setting and I really liked their goal of helping brides and grooms.

In was a little over a week ago that Jesse Csincsak revealed via webcam that his world had been shattered by fiancee DeAnna Pappas.

Today, the spurned snowboarder is opening up about the breakup and discussing his dating future in a deep interview with TV Guide ...

Q: Why go on YouTube to present your side? Why not just issue a joint press release?

Jesse Csincsak: We were going to do that, but some people found out [before we wanted]. The easiest thing seemed to be to hop on the webcam and put it on YouTube. I did it because I wanted to tell the fans what happened. [DeAnna and I] have gone our separate ways. I love her and I wish her nothing but the best. I felt that that's what I portrayed on YouTube and I hope that's the way it was taken.

Q: What response are you getting?

Jesse Csincsak: Thousands of emails, 20,000 to 30,000 hits a day on my MySpace page and 5,000 emails to my MySpace page.

Q: Any ladies interested in picking up where DeAnna Pappas left off?

Jesse Csincsak: There are definitely a few ladies who have contacted me, but I'm taking things one day at a time.

Q: Did going on-camera allow you to express more how you truly felt?

Jessie Csincsak: Yeah. I figured there's no better way to tell someone how you feel than to get out there and look right into the screen and say this is what's going on. I spoke to the fans about how I was really feeling. I didn't discuss anything about what had gone on [privately]. The answer I got [from DeAnna Pappas] was that she loved me, but "wasn't in love with me." That's what she told me.

It was a stunning breakup everybody totally none of us saw coming.

Reality TV lovebirds DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak are history.

Ashley Hebert on the Season Finale

The host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison, tells Entertainment tonight: "DeAnna went to Breckenridge last week and broke up with Jesse. He was stunned. I've talked to Jesse several times, and he did not see it coming."

Harrison claims DeAnna Pappas leaked the break-up to the press early:

"They agreed that this was not going to get out to the public until Thursday, they were going to release a joint statement and try and keep this above board, and she went out on her own, leaked it, and so he's just feeling a little beat up."

Jesse Csincsak and DeAnna Pappas in happier times. Like this summer.

"He really truly loved DeAnna," Harrison said of Jesse Csincsak. "He was so happy. He's like, 'Let's just go to Breckenridge, let's go to Atlanta, let's get the heck out of here, and let's live our lives. Let's just get to know each other and hang out.'"

Interestingly, Harrison says that the supposedly down-home DeAnna Pappas started having big Hollywood dreams and getting "bad advice" from people in L.A.

"... Paparazzi guys and some of the other people that she's been running into that have filled her head with, you know, these dreams that she's going to come to Hollywood and make it big and do all this stuff. And I think her head's getting a little bigger than it should and I think that's led to this as well."
