In 2007, DeAnna Pappas was one of two women to be rejected by Brad Womack (who had decided he wasn’t ready to connect to either of them). The next year, DeAnna opted to give the series another go, this time with her in the driver’s seat. Despite viewers rooting for adorable single dad Jason Mesnick, DeAnna settled on snowboarder Jesse Csincsak. Luckily for DeAnna, that wasn’t the end of her Bachelor journey as she then married the brother of a Bachelorette contestant. Talk about keeping it in the family!

This Canadian interior designer competed for the aforementioned hot pop, Jason, and went on to become the Bachelorette when she didn’t win. Sadly, her relationship with Ed Swiderski (the finalist of her season) didn’t last either. But Jillian soon found her happily-ever-after: she and fiance Justin Pasutto may not be in a hurry to walk down the aisle any time soon, but the couple has been together for more than six years and have two children together.

The Southern belle came close to walking down the aisle twice through The Bachelor – first by making it to the end of Brad’s second stint on The Bachelor and then by taking the reins herself in The Bachelorette. Emily was led to take this road to love after her NASCAR driver fiancé tragically died in a plane crash. Despite being three times unlucky in love, Emily eventually did find her man – and right under her nose. She had met Tyler Johnson in her hometown before becoming The Bachelorette.
