Andi Dorfman and Chris Soules
It's no secret that The Bachelorette's Chris Soules was a front-runner to star on The Bachelor. He's hot, successful, left his season broken-hearted — all the makings for the perfect lead. But with another past fan-favorite -- Arie from Emily Maynard's season -- also in talks for the gig, host Chris Harrison says the decision came down to the wire.
Desiree, Sean Lowe
Did The Bachelor's Sean just say goodbye to his soul mate? Host Chris Harrison thinks he might have.
"I'm pretty sure he let go of the love of his life," Harrison tells TVGuide.com about Desiree's exit.
On Monday's episode, Sean headed to the hometowns of the four remaining women. Although he and Desiree have had a connection since the start of the season, her brother's negative comments to Sean turned him off, and he let her go. But what did viewers not see from Des' hometown date? Harrison fills us in on that and more in our weekly interview.

Oh thank you, ABC. After something like 120 seasons and only two weddings, someone finally found a way to milk even more drama from The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise without involving Dancing with Stars. And it is the best trash ever. It's the Battle of the Not Working Stars.

As the next installment of ABC's hit dating show stars premieres with a returning Bachelor looking for a second shot at love, we've got to wonder: Why would anyone want to go back to a show that has such a poor track record when it comes to couples who stay together? Is it possible that TV isn't the best place to look for love? We decided to take a look back — at both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — to see where all the contestants are now.
