What happens on The Bachelor, doesn’t always stay on The Bachelor! While many couples have found — or lost — love on the reality TV dating franchise over the years, others have met their match within Bachelor Nation after their season ended.
Katie Thurston joined the club of offcamera Bachelor Nation couples in November 2021 when Us Weekly confirmed her relationship with John Hersey — who she sent home in week two of The Bachelorette season 17 — after her broken engagement to Blake Moynes. The duo dated for more than six months before their June 2022 split.
While Thurston and Hersey got a second chance after the cameras stopped rolling, some Bachelor Nation members never crossed paths onscreen before finding love later on, such as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick, who dated from January 2019 to August 2023 before going their separate ways.
