Why The Bachelor’s couple success rate is so much higher than the Bachelorette’s

The Bachelorette Australia has been marred by a trail of heartbreak since its first season aired in 2015.

While half of the couples who found love on The Bachelor are still together to this day, only one Bachelorette couple has managed to survive the test of time. 

According to Shameless podcast co-host Michelle Andrews, the reason behind The Bachelorette’s comparatively dismal success rate is simple.

‘I think the women going on this show are more likely to be hopeless romantics who actually do want a romantic relationship,’ she explained. 

‘I feel like with the recent Bachelorettes we’ve had in Elly and Becky, Angie Kent, Ali Oetjen, Sophie Monk – I feel like they really do get that frat boy, boys’ trip vibe of the contestants going on, and it truly doesn’t seem like many, maybe only a couple on each season, are genuinely invested in a relationship,’ she continued. 

‘The rest of them just want to go on for a holiday,’ Michelle added.
