Trista Rehn says she isn’t sure why all Bachelor relationships have failed.
ABC’s cornerstone reality series The Bachelor has produced zero successful relationships, while both seasons of The Bachelorette have produced, so far, happy couples. The first Bachelorette, Trista Rehn, says she isn’t sure why this is, although she suspects intervention from heaven. “I don’t know that there’s a magic potion. It may just be the luck of the draw that Meredith and I found who we were supposed to be with, and someone was watching over us.” She adds, “I don’t know if it’s because it’s TV and the media craze that happens afterwards, or whether [the other couples] were really ready.” Trista is now living in Colorado with poet/firefighter husband Ryan, and says she’s not pregnant.
