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.
Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray
After one of the toughest seasons in the show's history — and certainly the most tragic — The Bachelorette has ended with a happy engagement.
The last suitor to exit the limo on the first night, Josh caught Andi's attention immediately, but she remained skeptical of him because he was a former pro athlete. Still, the Tampa native remained a frontrunner and eventually won her over. In fact, she was so smitten that she dumped Nick the morning of the final rose ceremony. After Andi was finally able to profess her love, Josh got down on one knee, proposed and she said, "Yes!"

A new wave of Bachelor and Bachelorette alums are returning to TV for another shot at
Bachelor in Paradise, which premieres August 4 on ABC, features previous contestants sharing a house in an isolated romantic paradise. Unlike Bachelor Pad, known for its drunken debacles, hook-ups, competitions and prize money, this installment is simply about finding love. Check out the cast as it stands now -- three more men from Andi's current season will announce later — be announced —below.
Andi Dorfman, Chris Harrison
Coming off of Juan Pablo's turbulent season of The Bachelor, it seemed that The Bachelorette could only go up. But Chris Harrison says his experience with Andi and the newest batch of hopefuls far surpassed his expectations.
"I don't know if it's because we had such a rough go on Juan Pablo's season ... but when you're with someone who's a delight and also really nice and kind and grateful it makes a huge difference," Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "Everything really permeates from the [star], and it's a ripple effect to the camera guys, producers, etc. When you're going to work for 24 hours straight and haven't showered and are in a jungle like these people do for this show, if you're doing it for someone really grateful it makes a big difference and makes the whole season better and it really comes through on air. It felt so much easier with her."
J.P. Rosenbaum, Ashley Hebert
The Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are expecting their first child, In Touch reports.
Hebert is three months along and due in October. "I'm a little nervous, but we're very excited," she told the magazine. "I've wanted a child for a while."

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis
The Bachelor might have just ended, but like most viewers at home, Chris Harrison is still wondering what the heck happened on Monday night.
At the end of the two-hour finale, Juan Pablo sent Clare home, ultimately choosing Nikki. The live audience applauded as Clare gave the Venezuelan a piece of her mind and were also dumb-founded as Nikki professed her love, only to have those feelings hardly reciprocated when he offered her the final rose. At the live After the Final Rose special, things only got more bizarre and tense as a defensive Juan Pablo refused to truly say whether or not he even loves Nikki and all but chided Harrison for asking the questions that anyone who stars on this show is supposed to be asked.
Juan Pablo Galavis
It's no secret there's been a ton of negativity surrounding this season of The Bachelor. But while fans, celebrity and otherwise, have shared their distaste for Season 18 star Juan Pablo, it's also been one of the most talked-about seasons in the series' 14-year history. Which begs the question: Does a detested Bachelor actually make for a more successful season?
The Bachelor: Where are they now?
Juan Pablo Galavis
The ladies of The Bachelor were feisty on Monday's Women Tell All, but not amongst each other. Instead of the usual cattiness, this time around the group banded together to attack Juan Pablo.
From Andi's follow-up of last episode's ending to Kelly's emotional reaction to Juan Pablo's off-camera remarks and a bunch of stuff in between, Juan Pablo certainly took his fair share of heat. But it was also surprising who came to his defense, especially when it came to the almost unanimous claim that all his conversations were superficial.
