The Bachelor and it's spinoffs are probably some of the most watched dating shows on TV. And while they have had some success stories, here are 8 couples we expected to make it but didn't.
1. Joe Amabile and Kendall Long
Joe and Kendall had a rocky start on "Bachelor in Paradise," but reconnected after the show and have been going strong for almost two years. Their breakup came as a shock to fans, who have followed along as they moved in together in LA and even adopted a rescue puppy. They announced their "mutual" split in a join statement.
2. Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty
After breaking new ground together on "Bachelor in Paradise" as the franchise's first same-sex couple, Demi and Kristian were the ultimate #couplegoals. They even left the series engaged! Unfortunately, their love didn't last long off screen, and the pair confirmed their breakup with a join statement on Instagram.
3. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Boothe
After 3 years together, Kaitlyn and Shawn were one of the strongest Bachelor Nation couples in the show's history. Sadly, after rumors that they were on the rocks began to surface, and they released an official statement announcing their breakup.
4. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell
One of the cutest and sweetest couples, yet not even they could escape the curse of game show couples!
5. Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray
I think Andi ruined, not only Josh, but also her runner-up Nick Vaill. Both have gone on to be on other seasons of "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor in Paradise" and their relationships always end in a break up.
6. Nick Vaill and Vanessa Grimaldi
After trying multiple times to find love on "The Bachelor", 4 to be exact, it seemed as if Nick had finally found his person... but he didn't.
7. Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray
Does the name Josh sound familiar? Probably because he had a failed relationship with Andi Dorfman. And another with Amanda. I'm gonna have to blame this one on Josh because Amanda just seems like the sweetest soul.
8. Ashley I. and Kevin Wendt
After looking for love multiple times, not unlike Nick, Ashley I. finally found the lover of her life after winning Bachelor Winter Games, or so it seemed. After leaving the winter games, her ex from "Bachelor in Paradise" slid into those DMs and let her know he still loved her. So she left the oh-so-lovable Kevin for Jared.
