Over the years, there have been a number of couples that have gone on to lead great lives together and flourish in their relationships. Others have not ended so well, and that’s always a great possibility, considering The Bachelorette has one woman starting out with 25-30 eligible bachelors at her disposal.
Here is a full list of the past winners on The Bachelorette for each of the Previous 11 seasons, and a bit of an update on all of them.
The Bachelorette Season 1 — 2003
Bachelorette: Trista Rehn
Winner: Ryan Sutter

Believe it or not, the very first couple from the series is still as happy as can be together and have two children.

Bachelorette: Meredith Phillips
Winner: Ian McKee

JoJo Fletcher has two finalists to choose from on the season finale of The Bachelorette, and they are shocking options to many people. Still, they are her choices, and she has gotten to this point through her own decisions and she hopes that the last one she makes is the right one. In the past, some shocking choices were made and not all of them worked out, but JoJo is really hoping that her path is a good one.
