10 Bachelor/Bachelorette Breakups We Totally Saw Coming
It’s probably not easy to develop a relationship as it’s being broadcast on national television. It’s probably even harder to do so when you have around 30 men or women all trying to charm their way down the aisle. So it’s not surprising that many of the Bachelor or Bachelorette couples didn’t get the happily ever after they all signed up for. Here are 10 breakups that viewers could have seen coming from a mile away.
10. Jennifer Shefft and Jerry Ferris (The Bachelorette Season 3)
When Jen initially turned down John Paul Merrit’s proposal, we all thought for sure she would choose Jerry Ferris. When the time came for Jerry to pop the question, Jen continuously questioned his intentions. It honestly came across as though Jen was the one second guessing her decision and was trying to lay the responsibility on Jerry. After the finale viewers were left confused and unsure about the supposed love Jen had for Jerry. Needless to say we all had our money on the fact that the two would never tie the knot.
9. Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado (The Bachelor Season 6)
Despite the couple managing to stick together for 5 years after the show aired, viewers were still not surprised when the couple finally broke up. Evidence that all might not be perfect in paradise arose during a show reunion when Byron joked about not actually marrying Mary. Mary was then arrested the night following the reunion for physically assaulting Byron; however, we can only speculate that the two events are correlated. Despite this, fans began thinking that something darker was going on once the cameras stopped rolling and none were shocked when the couple broke off their engagement in 2009.
