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:

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.

The original star of The Bachelorette, Trista Sutter, renewed her wedding vows with final rose recipient Ryan Sutter after 10 years of marriage this weekend.

On Saturday, the couple who America tell in love with a decade ago said "I do" all over again in a more intimate ceremony in their hometown of Vail, Colo.

"It's an understatement to say I hit the jackpot," Trista, 41, said of the man she met on reality TV. "He is such a good person. He gets better with age."

Cameras captured the vow renewal, which will be featured in a special The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories, on Sunday, January 19, at 8 p.m. ET.

It's part of a series of specials ABC has planned to coincide with the current season, which starts January 5 (follow the link for The Bachelor spoilers).

Juan Pablo has a long way to go if we wants to top Trista and Ryan.

Looking to celebrate 10 years of marital bliss with Bachelor nation, Trista Sutter and Ryan Sutter will renew their vows in an ABC special next month.

Perhaps that's for the best ... from what The Bachelor spoilers are now indicating, this may be the happiest moment of the 2014 season. We'll leave it at that.

Appearing on Good Morning America to plug her new book Happily Ever After, the original Bachelorette announced her plans to re-marry Ryan on TV.

The occasion will be part of "Juan-uary," the network's series of four different specials to hype current fan favorite Juan Pablo Galavis' upcoming season.

Asked by Robin Roberts what makes her relationship with Ryan work (unlike so many other Bachelor couplings), Trista chalked it up to "perfect" timing.

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.
