'The Bachelorette': Where Every Former Lead Is Now

By

The bigBachelorette reunion is almost here! 

In honor of the upcoming 15th season of the Bachelor spinoff, starring Hannah Brown, ABC has gifted us with a walk down memory lane in the form of a get-together with almost every past Bachelorette.

Trista Sutter, Ali Fedotowsky, Kaitlyn Bristowe, Rachel Lindsay, Becca Kufrin and more all got together for a day of "talking, telling stories of motherhood and just being women today," according to host Chris Harrison. 

"There was no producing, no nothing. It was just raw them," he told ET. "And then having them lined up in the driveway later that night, like, looking from Trista to Becca like, 'Wow, we did this.' Like, all these kickass women doing their thing. I thought it was pretty cool."

Missing from the event was Bachelorette No. 2, Meredith Phillips, and No. 3, Jen Schefft (more on that here). Here's what they -- and the rest of the women -- have been up to since their seasons wrapped. 

Season 1: Trista Rehn

Our very first Bachelorette, Trista, married her final pick, Ryan Sutter, in a televised ceremony on Dec. 6, 2003, and they now share two children together, son Max and daughter Blakesley. The couple renewed their vows in 2014, and recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary

Season 2: Meredith Phillips

Meredith ended her season engaged to Ian McKee, though they ended their relationship a year after her season finale, in February 2005. She recently made headlines last May after alleging that she was sexually assaulted by a masseuse while filming her season. She said she didn't tell anyone about what had happened for a long time. Both ABC and Warner Bros. had no comment at the time Meredith's allegation surfaced. 

Season 3: Jen Schefft

Jen chose Jerry Ferris in the show's first live final rose ceremony in 2005, and he got down on one knee, only to have her reject his proposal. At the After the Final Rose special, she explained she saw Jerry as more of a friend. Jen, who is now married to Joe Waterman and has two daughters, has stayed away from the public eye in recent years.

Season 4: DeAnna Pappas

The next Bachelorette season occurred three years later, in 2008. Pappas accepted Jesse Csincsak's proposal during her season finale, rejecting Jason Mesnick (who went on to become the Bachelor). Pappas and Csincsak had a wedding planned for May 9, 2009, but didn't make it down the aisle, breaking up in November 2008. In 2011, Pappas married Stephen Stagliano, whose twin brother, Michael Stagliano, appeared on season five of The Bachelorette. She and Stephen share two children: daughter Addison and son Austin.  

Season 5: Jillian Harris

Jillian chose Ed Swiderski on her season finale in 2009, but the following year, they ended their engagement. The Canadian designer is still on TV screens, appearing on Love It or List It Vancouver as well as a four-part documentary series, Jillian and Justin, with her fiance, Justin Pasutto. They have to kids together, son Leo and daughter Annie. 

Season 6: Ali Fedotowsky

Ali was with her final pick and fiance, Roberto Martinez, for a year and a half after her finale until their breakup in November 2011. She went through a few career changes (fans will remember her quitting The Bachelor to return to her job at Facebook), becoming a morning show correspondent and later TV host. She married radio personality Kevin Manno in 2017, two years after their engagement. Ali and Kevin are parents to daughter Molly and son Riley

Season 7: Ashley Hebert

The first Bachelorette to stay with her final pick since Trista's season was Ashley, who tied the knot with J.P. Rosenbaum in a televised wedding in December 2012. Her runner-up, Ben Flajnik, went on to become the Bachelor. The pediatric dentist now lives in Miami, Florida, with J.P., and they share two kids: son Ford and daughter Essie

Season 8: Emily Maynard

Emily, who also came from Bachelor Brad Womack's second season, like Ashley (DeAnna came from his first, so technically three Bachelorettes share the same ex), accepted Jef Holm's proposal on her season finale of The Bachelorette in 2012. She and Holm lasted just a few months before splitting, and her runner-up, Arie Luyendyk Jr., became the Bachelor in 2018. Emily married Tyler Johnson in 2014, and have given her daughter, Ricki, three younger brothers, Jennings, Gibson and Gatlin. 

Season 9: Desiree Hartsock

Des also stayed with her final pick, Chris Siegfried, after getting engaged in 2013. They tied the knot less than two years later, and currently live in Seattle, Washington, with their two young sons, Asher and Zander. She also made her dream of becoming a bridal gown designer true. 

Season 10: Andi Dorfman

Andi dumped Nick Viall before accepting Josh Murray's proposal on her 2014 season finale, but she and Josh broke up shortly after making a joint appearance on Chris Soules' Bachelor premiere in January 2015. The pair's split wasn't exactly amicable, with Andi writing about Josh in her book, It's Not Okay. She's since gone on to write another New York Times bestseller, Single State of Mind, and recently hung out with another of Murray's ex-fiancees, Amanda Stanton. 

Season 11: Kaitlyn Bristowe

Nick was another runner-up on Kaitlyn's season in 2015; she ended up choosing Shawn Booth, and the pair were engaged for three years, until November 2018. Kaitlyn, who hosts a podcast called Off the Vine, is now dating another Bachelorette alum, Jason Tartick, who appeared on Becca's season. 

Special Mention: Britt Nilsson

Britt missed out on becoming the Bachelorette after the men chose Kaitlyn over her in the season's premiere. One contestant, Brady Toops, quit the show in order to date Britt, but their romance soon fizzled out. She married Jeremy Byrne in 2017. 

Season 12: JoJo Fletcher

JoJo and her final pick, Jordan Rodgers, are still engaged, nearly three years after fans watched him propose on the season 12 finale of The Bachelorette. The couple lives together in Dallas, Texas, and recently revealed on their web series that they're going to set a wedding date this year. 

Season 13: Rachel Lindsay

Also getting ready to walk down the aisle is Rachel, who will say "I do" to her final choice, Bryan Abasolo, in a destination wedding in August, two years after her 2017 season finale. The pair recently moved from Dallas, Texas, to Miami, Florida, and have both been in and out of the spotlight with various TV appearances. Fun fact: Rachel is the third woman to date Nick, after appearing on his Bachelor season. 

Season 14: Becca Kufrin

Becca accepted Garrett Yrigoyen's proposal on her season finale last year, and they've since moved to San Diego, California. In a February interview with ET, they revealed that they're not rushing to get married. "If we were to meet in a normal daily setting and date normally, I think we would still extend that, so we're just trying to keep that going," Becca explained.  

Season 15: Hannah Brown

Hannah's season is set to premiere in just over a week, and right about now, she's narrowing down her final men in the hopes of leaving her season an engaged woman. Here's to Hannah finding fierce love! 

The special Bachelorette reunion airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Brown's season kicks off the following week, on May 13. Join ET's Bachelor Nation Facebook group here
