In the past 15 years, The Bachelor & Bachelorette have given us plenty of shockers, from emotional meltdowns to twists we never saw coming.
Usually, these events result - or stem from - an elimination.

Suddenly it's no surprise that this franchise has left a mark on the genre, airing for more than THIRTY-FIVE seasons, with no end in sight.
The men, women and moments featured on this list made their way onto it for very diverse reasons. Often through no fault of their own.
All provided images we won't soon forget, however ... at least not 'til the next season airs on ABC and we update this list once again.
Where does this week's Bachelorette season finale, and its devastating heartbreak for Blake Horstmann, place in our rankings?
