Before Chris Soules hands out his first rose on The Bachelor, take a look back at the show's track record for finding lasting matches.
Who he chose: Amanda Marsh Where are they now? They dated for about a year before breaking up. Alex is now in a steady relationship and was a "romance and proposal expert" for Princess Cruises.
Who he chose: Helene Eksterowicz Where are they now? They broke up weeks after the finale aired. Aaron is married to Angye McIntosh, whom he met through an ex-flame, and Helene went on to pen the book Nobody's Perfect: What to Do When You've Fallen for a Jerk But You Want to Make It Work.
Who he chose: Jen Schefft Where are they now? The two were engaged for a bit, but soon broke up. Andrew married actress-model Ivana Bozilovic in July 2008, and they have two children. Jen, who struck out again on The Bachelorette, wrote the book Better Single Than Sorry: A No-Regrets Guide to Loving Yourself and Never Settling. She eventually married Joe Waterman, with whom she has two children.
Who he chose: Estella Gardinier Where are they now? Despite giving her a promise ring, Bob ended his relationship with Estella weeks after the finale aired. Bob met his future wife, soap star Rebecca Budig, on Bachelor XYZ, an ABC Family recap show, but the two announced their divorce in April 2010.
Who he chose: Jessica Bowlin Where are they now? Although the former NFL player gave Jessica a one-way ticket to join him in New York, the relationship ended after just a few weeks. He can still be seen on TV covering college football.
Who he chose: Mary Delgado Where are they now? Byron and Mary ended their somewhat rocky six-year relationship in December 2009.
Who he chose: Sarah Brice Where are they now? They continued to date before breaking up in 2007. They reunited in 2008, but separated again in 2010.
Who he chose: Sarah Stone Where are they now? They have since parted ways, and Travis, who married a fellow physician, can now be seen on The Doctors.
Who he chose: Jennifer Wilson Where are they now? When Jennifer and the prince broke up, he dated runner-up Sadie Murray. That relationship fizzled as well.
Who he chose: Tessa Horst Where are they now? The two stayed together even after breaking off their engagement, but eventually ended things completely. Andy is now involved in numerous charities and has competed in several triathlons and Ironman competitions.
Who he chose: Brad Womack was the first Bachelor to not choose anyone, rejecting both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft. Where are they now? Brad caught a lot of flack for not handing out a final rose, but he decided to come back for a second round in 2011. DeAnna and Jenni, meanwhile, are both happily married.
Who he chose: Shayne Lamas Where are they now? They confirmed their break-up in July 2008. Shayne went on to star with her family in the reality show, Leave it to Lamas and also appeared with her husband on VH1's Couple's Therapy.

After becoming a fan favorite on Dancing with the Stars, Melissa scored a gig as a correspondent for Good Morning America and married Tye Strickland, with whom she has a baby girl.
