7 Most Shocking Bachelor/Bachelorette Breakups
Most fans don’t usually expect to see the beginning of a 65 year long marriage when watching The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. However, once in a blue moon, there are couples that seem to defy all odds and find the happily ever after we’re all looking for. Some couples, despite being ridiculously cute all season, don’t have that luck. Here are several Bachelor Nation breakups that shocked us all.
7. Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins (The Bachelor season 20)
Despite Ben shockingly confessing his love for two contestants during his season, none were surprised when he asked Lauren to be his bride. From the beginning, the two had a calm and sweet connection and we all thought they would be the couple that could make it work. However, on May 15th of this year, Ben and Lauren announced their split and it was a slap in the face for fans of the couple. The full details of the split have yet to be revealed, but Lauren has stated that for her the emotional connection fizzled out. Although we’re sad to see the couple part ways, they are both equally sweet and charming, so love can’t be too far around the corner.
6. Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez (The Bachelorette season 6)
Roberto had been the season’s front runner as his immediate connection with Ali was undeniable. Not only did Roberto win the first impression rose, but through a drama-filled season that included men walking out on Ali, Roberto acted as her rock. He was one of the most consistent men on the that seemed to genuinely make Ali happy. However it wasn’t until their split in 2011 that the skeletons came out of the closet. Although we all knew Roberto was traditional, we didn’t expect it to cause such a rift in the relationship. It was a shock to hear that Roberto did not want Ali to have a career which would lead to explosive fights.
