They found love in a hopeless place: the hell that is being eliminated from a reality dating competition!
Though there's technically only one winner at the end of each season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, that doesn't mean you can't stll find love within the ABC reality hit franchise if you're one of the 24 rose-less contestants.
Thanks to the show's tightknit crew and hookup-encouraging spinoffs (Bachelor Pad, we're looking at you), plenty of former Bachelor and Bachelorette stars have gone on to find love, or at least temporary companionship, with their fellow contestants.
And guess what? Some have even gotten married and have had kids! Hey, who says you can't find love on reality TV?
To prove that it isn't totally impossible to find love on (or adjacent to!) The Bachelor, Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad, we've rounded up 10 couples that have hooked up off the shows!
And Bachelor Nation should prepare to see even more hookups go down within the show's family (you know what we mean!) when Bachelor in Paradise premieres on Monday, Aug. 4, and finds former contestants, such as Michelle Kujawa, Graham Bunn and Clare Crawley, living together in a romantic paradise in an attempt to find everlasting love.
