James, Desiree Hartsock
The Bachelorette is usually lighthearted and full of fun, but this week's episode, which incorporated the tragedy caused by Hurricane Sandy, had a more serious tone.
As part of the episode's one-on-one date, Desiree and James headed to the New Jersey shore where they met a couple whose home was destroyed and who had to celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary in a Red Cross shelter. Des and James then gave the couple their date and instead spent their night grabbing pizza and eventually joining the couple for a private concert by Darius Rucker.
How well does Chris Harrison remember all 25 seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette?
Video: Go back in time to the top moments of The Bachelor Season 1!
In 2002, ABC tested the reality waters by introducing a competition reality show where one man, Alex Michel, would search for his a potential wife out of 25 women. Eleven years later, the franchise is still going strong with a few marriages, a lot of broken engagements, tons of tears, many meltdowns and innumerable hot-and-heavy hot-tubs scenes. But does Harrison, the host since Day 1, remember all those memorable moments? TVGuide.com put Harrison to the test! Watch below to see how well he does.
It's hard to believe that The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise has already hit 25 seasons.
In honor of all the tears, the hot tubs, the helicopters, the proposals and rejections over the last 10 years, we're taking a look back at two of the best moments from the inaugural season.

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.
