7. Why Their Relationship Lasted

Trista Sutter believes her relationships is one of the few from Bachelor nation that actually worked because of what they chose to do after the show ended. “Whenever I hear of people going on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ right after, it’s heartbreaking to me,” she said to Today. “It is a really short period of time, and you are in a bubble. For six, eight, 10 weeks — however long you’re filming. For us, it was six. So that’s all you’re focused on…You’re just solely focused on developing these relationships. And for some people, they get caught up in the glamour of it all, and the excitement. And maybe they realize, after they get back to the real world, that they’re not compatible.”
