10. Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado
With over 20 seasons now aired, fans may have a hard time remembering season six Bachelor Byron Velvick. The pro bass fisherman ended up choosing Mary Delgado and the duo went on to have a whole lot of ups and downs. They were on and off for five years and then things got really bad in 2007 when Delgado was arrested for allegedly assaulting Velvick. Despite the incident, the two stayed together for two more years but after five years, a lot of fights, and the arrest, they finally split in 2009.
