Let's take a look back at all the love connections made (or not) on the ABC reality hit!Not even the first season of the entire franchise featured a proposal. Runner-up Charlie Maher didn't stand a chance against Ryan Sutter, who Rehn then married in December of the same year.Byron proposed to Mary Delgado, who also competed in season four, in Spanish so that her Cuban parents could understand.She accepted, but they never actually married before breaking up in 2009."We just want to see—build our lives together and get to know each other in a normal sense." Bryan also revealed that he and Rachel had spoken to his mom together over the phone, and that despite her terrifying warnings about being the main woman in Bryan's life, she welcomed Rachel into the family. "They've spoken a couple of times since the proposal and they get along great." Rachel's family, on the other hand, is still not entirely sure of this whole thing. Rachel went on to say that during the hometown date, she shocked herself by referring to Bryan as her best friend, and that's when she realized that he was "the one." And while that finale left us more than a little shook (which is a word we do not use lightly), it was hard not to be affected when Bryan came out and re-proposed to Rachel on live TV.
They got back together later, and then broke up again just a couple months later. After losing out on Brad "Forever Alone" Womack, Ashley Hebert actually managed to successfully find love with J. They tried again, and even got engaged again, but they were over by October. After breaking up with Brad Womack twice, Emily Maynard got a second (third?He did, however, give her a promise ring, which is only one of the most high school things that has ever happened on this show.Their promise did not last long, and they broke up shortly after the show aired.Ed might also be remembered for having to leave in week 5 in order to keep his new job with Microsoft, but he managed to return in week 7.That should have been a sign of true love or something, but Jillian and Ed were broken up a year later.Brad Womack's (first) season is one of the show's most infamous seasons due to the fact that Brad didn't choose anyone.He rejected both De Anna Pappas and Jenni Croft, and everybody went home alone after the most dramatic finale so far.Unfortunately, his relationship with Jen Schefft did not pan out after his proposal, because they broke up after just a few months.Bob Guiney,got his own time in the love-finding spotlight, but he didn't end up proposing to his winner, Estella Gardinier.Love is in the air...sometimes..a few months, at least.Season after season of TV's most romantic reality show have come and gone. Most of them..let's just say it's the journey that counts.
