First, comes love, then comes fame, then comes a short-lived engagement? That's pretty much the formula for most couples on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. And now, on the heels of Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi's not-so-surprising split only five months after their televised engagement aired, we're wondering if true love even exists anymore on this show.

And some stars — we're looking at you, Emily Maynard — have the privilege of having two failed engagements from the franchise. With 34 combined seasons from the shows (not including Paradise or Pad because LOL those stats are even worse, only a handful of Bachelor couples who are still together have actually made it down the aisle. And with stats like those, the odds are not on the side of these couples — keep scrolling to see the shortest Bachelor engagements — besides Nick and V, that is.

Jason proposed during the finale of Season 13 of The Bachelor, but then later changed his mind during After The Final Rose. He asked for the ring back and instead proposed to runner-up Molly Malaney.
