True love isn’t found only in Bachelor Mansion on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Some of Bachelor Nation’s most successful couples have emerged from “Bachelor in Paradise” and the white sand beaches of Mexico.
Over the course of five seasons — with the sixth just beginning — we’ve seen relationships begin and end and, sometimes, begin again. Not all “Paradise” relationships last, but the percentage of couples still together isn’t too shabby.
These “Bachelor in Paradise” couples — whether married, engaged, or in relationships — have thus far stood the test of Bachelor Nation time.
Jade Roper & Tanner Tolbert
Jade and Tanner are a great example of “Bachelor in Paradise” success. They got together on Season 2 of the show and were engaged by the end. Jade and Tanner have a daughter Emmy and just welcomed a son, Brooks Easton Tolbert.
Carly Waddell & Evan Bass
Evan Bass essentially set the standard for great love stories on “Paradise.” He went to great lengths to prove his dedication to Carly, like the time he faked an injury just to get her attention. True love isn’t dead! Now they’re married with a daughter and have another on the way. Mind if we steal your move, Evan?
Raven Gates & Adam Gottschalk
Raven and Adam are a prime example of “Paradise” working relationship magic. These two thrived throughout Season 4 and decided to leave Mexico as a couple to explore their relationship. Raven later packed up and moved from Arkansas to Dallas, where they’ve lived together for about two years. Adam proposed to Raven on May 31 on a rooftop in Dallas.
Ashley Iaconetti & Jared Haibon
All of Ashley’s tears were worth it in the end because she finally got her guy after a few overlapping seasons with Jared. Though they met on Season 2 of “Paradise” in 2015, it would take another three (three!!!) years for them to start dating. The Rhode Island native finally popped the question in June 2018. Their wedding date is scheduled for this month.
Krystal Nielson & Chris Randone
Are Chris and Krystal the fittest couple in “Paradise” history? Probably, but they’re also one of the best, too. These lovebirds met on Season 5 in 2018 and got engaged at the end. They got married in Mexico in June, which we’ll luckily get to see this season. They live in San Diego and have hinted that they’re ready to start a family together. Bring on Baby Glitter Goose!
Astrid Loch & Kevin Wendt
Bachelor Nation breathe a huge sigh of relief when Astrid and Kevin announced they were back together as a couple. Kevin broke up with Astrid on Season 5 of the show seemingly out of nowhere, but admitted that a lot of it had to do with his own fears and insecurities. They mended their relationship after the show and decided to take things slowly and date. In December, Astrid moved to Canada to be with Kevin. Talk about a cute love story, eh?
Kendall Long & Joe Amabile
Kendall and Joe were another one of those “will-they-or-won’t-they” couples in “Paradise” last season. Joe wanted Kendall and only Kendall, whereas she wanted to test the waters a bit. Although they didn’t leave Mexico as a couple, they got together after the show when Kendall realized her true feelings for the grocery store owner. In April, Joe and Kendall announced that they moved in together. Hurrah!
