Not every former Bachelorette found The One on the ABC series — but they’ve all captivated audiences with their search for love.
The Bachelor spinoff started off strong with Trista and Ryan Sutter, who got engaged during the first season of The Bachelorette in 2003. The couple, who have been married since December of that year, have since welcomed two children.
“I do not [regret it],” Trista exclusively told Us Weekly in March 2021 of her nuptials. “It was the best day ever. A close second to my children’s births. … But no, I don’t regret it at all. It was a beautiful day and I feel very lucky to have had the experience.”
In addition to celebrating her own love story, Trista told Us that she’s rooting for the rest of the franchise’s leading ladies to find a lasting relationship with their final suitor.
“I am, like, a hopeless romantic, and I believe that everyone on the show is going to last like Ryan and me,” she exclusively told Us in February 2021. “I’m sure that’s a little naive, but I try to think positively, and I want the best for [the other Bachelorettes].”
