The Bachelor Bible: Babies, Breakups And Chasing Birds
The emotional 'Bachelorette' finale has us reminiscing about the most memorable Bachie couples to hit our screens. So where are they now?
Over the last five years, the Bachelor and Bachelorette romances have given us engagements, dramatic breakups, wedding bells and a baby.
Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich (2013)
Five years later and Australia's original Bachelor couple -- Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich -- are still going strong and very much in love.
The chiropractor and lawyer got married in Italy in June this year and -- just last week-- bought their first home together.
"I’m a very lucky man! I can’t believe I got to marry the most gorgeous human I know! What a journey... and it’s only just begun!" Robards wrote on Instagram after their wedding ceremony. Cute!
Heinrich is also set to star in 10's new series Trial By Kyle with Kyle Sandilands in 2019 while Robards kicked off his acting debut this year and has been appearing on Neighbours.
Blake Garvey and Sam Frost(2014)
The following year saw one of the biggest upsets in Bach history (until this year, that is) when Blake Garvey proposed to Sam Frost but then quickly changed his mind and began dating runner-up, Louise Pillidge.
"We went from having a chat about what to expect after the finale aired to Blake saying, 'I want to break up with Sam', Frost told Cleo mag in 2014.
Frost then went on to become Australia's very first Bachelorette but split with winner Sasha Mielczarek 18 months after the finale aired.
Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski (2015)
Another one of Australia's favourite Bachie couples -- Sam and Snez -- got together on the reality show three seasons ago and now have the cutest little family together.
Wood become a stepfather to Snezana's now 12-year-old daughter Eve and the couple gave birth to Willow Wendy Wood in October last year -- making her the first ever Australian Bachelor baby!
Sam and Snez had originally planned a lavish overseas wedding but told Now To Love that their growing family meant they've decided to "keep it a bit closer to home and a bit simpler."
Richie Strahan and Alex Nation (2016)
Richie and Alex looked set to last but, alas, it wasn't to be. The pair stayed together for a year before announcing their split in 2017.
Nation told news.com.au that long-distance put a strain on their relationship, saying: "Inevitably, it fell apart" of their short-lived romance.
Strahan opened up about their split to New Idea, describing it as "heartbreaking".
“The months leading up to it were the most difficult, crazy and confusing time I’ve been put through," he said.
"Having something dissolve the way it did was heartbreaking, but at the same time, there was a lot of relief that the emotional rollercoaster was finally over,” he said.
Georgia Love and Lee Elliott (2016)
Lee certainly made a lasting impression when he brought a donkey up the red carpet the first time he met our 2016 Bachelorette, Georgia Love.
The pair has been inseparable ever since Georgia chose Lee over future Bachelor Matty J in the heartbreaking finale.
And while there are constant rumours about the pair being engaged, married, or pregnant, it seems the couple is happy enough playing soccer with their cat, Pawdrey Hepburn.
Matty Johnson and Laura Byrne (2017)
It's only been a year since Matty J gave his final rose to Laura -- even though she was worried she'd only make it to the runner-up spot.
And while their romance blossomed very much in the public eye, Matty said that meeting on a reality TV show means you can relive the experience of falling in love any time you want!
"12 months ago we got spat out into the real world and our secret was no more," he wrote on Instagram a year after they started dating.

"We often joke about the fact that we found each other on reality TV and I’m so glad that’s how it happened -- it means I get to take a trip down memory lane and relive it any time I want," he wrote.
Sophie Monk And Stu Laundy (2017)
She was the people's Bachelorette and the whole country was genuinely gunning for a happy ending for Sophie. The former Bardot singer picked Stu over Jarrod Woodgate and his pot plant but the couple sadly announced they'd broken up about four months after the finale.
“I gave it the best shot I could and my intentions were everything I said I was looking for, but unfortunately it just didn’t work out," Monk wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Nick Cummins and ... (2018)
Well, we all know what happened there. But according to his Instagram, the Honey Badger is ready to joke about the whole situation, writing that he was out "chasing a few birds" yesterday. Too soon, Nick.
Ali Oetjen and Taite Radley(2018)
It's only been a few days since we found out Ali picked Taite Radley over Hot Todd but they're looking pretty damn smitten after months of keeping their relationship going both long-distance and under complete secrecy.
"These past couple of months have been so hard, long distance relationship plus keeping us a secret plus how over the moon happy I am!" Ali wrote on Instagram.
"I’ve never been more spiritually, emotionally, physically connected and in love. You light up my world beautiful!"
