Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell

Though things didn’t work out with Bachelor star Ben Higgins, Lauren Bushnell has found her happily ever after with country singer Chris Lane. The pair have been friends for awhile, but they made their official debut as a couple at the BMI Country Music Awards back in November 2018. Chris recently popped the question to Lauren while visiting her hometown of West Linn, Oregon in June and she said yes!


Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams

Former Bachelorette star Wells Adams slid into the Modern Family actress’ DMs back in 2017 and well, the rest is history. Wells and Sarah officially started dating in September 2017 and have been inseparable ever since. In fact, they recently got engaged while on vacation in Fiji and are planning their nuptials.

January Jones and Nick Viall

Longtime Bachelor fan January Jones has not been shy about her love of the show, so it’s no surprise Nick Viall reportedly capitalized on her affection back in January 2018. Rumors began swirling that the couple was dating around this time, but just a few months later both Nick and January confirmed they were single.

Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron

It’s happening, people! A few weeks after supermodel Gigi Hadid followed Tyler Cameron on Instagram, the pair was spotted getting drinks together at Soho House in Brooklyn on Sunday, August 4. While this doesn’t necessarily mean they’re dating, it is clear they’re both interested in one another.


Aly Raisman and Colton Underwood

Before he became the Bachelor, Colton Underwood dated Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman. The couple got together following the 2016 Olympics, but ended up calling it quits less than a year later. Though Colton is happily dating Cassie Randolph, we’ll never forget his time with Aly.


Scheana Shay and Robby Hayes

We don’t know if we can say Scheana Shay and Robby Hayes ever officially dated, but they definitely had a fling. In fact, their flirtation was even documented on Vanderpump Rules. They’re no longer a thing, but they are still buddies.
