The Bachelorette Stars: Ranked By Relationship Length!

by at .  Updated at .

If The Bachelorette spoilers are any indication ... Hannah Brown may have her heart set on The One already on the new season.

If you just look at the venerable franchise's track record, however, Hannah Beast's odds of long-term success are mixed at best.

Why do we say that?

Isn't it obvious? This is a dating competition throwing two people together under a pretense that is literally impossible to sustain.

Can they transition into real life, establish a new normal and make it work? They can, but often times, they fall short of that goal.

We have ranked the 14 stars of The Bachelorette based on who was most successful at finding love during her stint as ABC's queen.

See how they stack up from worst to first, and see if HB can find what some (if not all) of her predecessors have found ...

1. Jen Schefft

Jen Schefft
Bachelorette Jen Schefft broke up with winner Jerry Ferris on the After the Rose special because she just "wasn't feeling it." Not even making it to the day after the finale? That's a low bar set for everyone else.

2. Emily Maynard

Emily Maynard
Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up just a few months after his proposal in 2012. He was never the right guy anyway. Should've picked Sean Lowe. Not that she or Sean (who is happily married to Catherine Giudici, who he met on The Bachelor) are overthinking it right now. Emily has since married and had a bunch of kids with Tyler Johnson.

3. Andi Dorfman

Andi Dorfman
Andi Dorfman found love with Josh Murray on The Bachelorette. Unfortunately, their engagement ended after only six months or so.

4. DeAnna Pappas

DeAnna Pappas
DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak broke up seven months after their finale aired. She went on to marry Stephen Stagliano, a high school teacher and the twin brother of former Bachelorette contestant Mike Stagliano!

5. Jillian Harris

Jillian Harris
Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski broke up one year after their finale aired. Swiderski later appeared on Bachelor Pad. Jillian now appears on HGTV's Love it or List it Too.

6. Meredith Phillips

Meredith Phillips
Meredith Phillips, the second Bachelorette, chose Ian McKee as her groom. The two broke up just over a year later, with little fanfare.

7. Ali Fedotowsky

Ali Fedotowsky
Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez made it one year and three months before going their separate ways. Pretty decent compared to some Bachelor flame-outs.

8. Kaitlyn Bristowe

Kaitlyn Bristowe
Haters and recurring breakup rumors be damned, Kaitlyn Bristowe and final rose recipient Shawn Booth lasted three whole years ... which is a long time. Then they broke up in November 2018.

9. Becca Kufrin

Becca Kufrin
They're one of seven Bachelorette couples still together, by our calculations, including the last three. While they already outlasted skeptics' predictions, and seem happy as clams, Kufrin recently said the engaged duo's nuptials are "very far in the future." So there's that. One thing at a time, we suppose.

10. JoJo Fletcher

JoJo Fletcher
She's still engaged to Jordan Rodgers and sure seems happy about it, two years later, despite many of their critics assuming this relationship was DOA. Still no wedding, but the joke is most definitely on those of us assuming they'd be over by the time tabloids moved on to the next season. Not so at all.

11. Rachel Lindsay

Rachel Lindsay
The long-term love game appears to be a reality for Rachel Lindsay, who went public with fiancee Bryan Abasolo following the Season 13 finale two years ago. They've been going strong ever since their season came to an end, and recently revealed that wedding planning is in the works!

12. Desiree Hartsock

Desiree Hartsock
Desiree Hartsock, after famously settling for her second choice on The Bachelorette, Chris Siegfried, went on to make a successful relationship happen. Sometimes when one door closes, a better one opens. They're married as of 2015 and have a family together!

13. Ashley Hebert

Ashley Hebert
Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum got engaged in 2011 and married in 2012 in a special that aired on ABC. They're still married and living happily ever after. Safe to say that counts as a success story.

14. Trista Sutter

Trista Sutter
Trista Sutter, the OB (ehhh, that's original Bachelorette), wins this one by a long shot! She and hubby Ryan Sutter have been married for almost 15 years. Fifteen! The first-ever Bachelorette makes for an unbeatable standard-bearer in terms of pure longevity.
