Hey, don't forget about Trista Sutter!

In the wake of the latest Bachelor bombshell that dropped earlier this week when sweethearts Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff "mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement" roughly six months after Soules popped the question (in real life, not when the finale aired), the original Bachelorette is sticking up for the franchise. 

We were deep in a Ben & Jerry's binge mourning the loss of Prince Farming and his soon-to-be princess when the show's creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter to reminisce on just a few of the success stories that have come out of 19 seasons. 

"3 weddings in 2 years ain't bad, #Bachelornation...," Fleiss tweeted, reffering to the recent successful matches made in rose-accepting heaven, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, and Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum

Sutter then retweeted Fleiss, adding her own example of wedded bliss with Ryan Sutter to the mix. 

"And I'll raise u an 11 yr marriage. Hard work? Yes! Any marriage is! But without Bachelorette, no intro, no marriage," she reflected

To which Fleiss rejoiced, "The Queen has spoken!"

The 42-year-old mom of two does have a point, though, and it's nice to think that there's a final rose out there for all of us.
