The Bachelor became an ABC sensation the moment it premiered March 22, 2002. Since then, the television smash hit has given us a few success stories along with 15 of the shortest Bachelor relationships.
Its fanbase even has a moniker — Bachelor Nation. Since its explosive debut, the Chris Harrison-hosted reality dating show seems to have gotten more popular with age, a rarity in the world of reality TV.
History has shown us that the success stories are few over the run of the series. Some couples called it quits so quickly it gave fans whiplash. Others managed to hold on for several months before succumbing to the realities of life and that their TV whirlwind romance was probably doomed to fail from the beginning.
