Bachelor couple Charlie O’Connell and Sarah Brice break up

And another Bachelor couple is over. Charlie O’Connell and Sarah Brice, who met on the seventh season of the series, officially broke up this past summer.

They were done long before Charlie’s brother Jerry married in July, according to Sarah, who told In Touch Weekly, “It was a clean break-up, nothing out of control. … I definitely thought I’d spend the rest of my life with him…but there were some things between us that we couldn’t resolve. We still love each other a lot.”

They were one of two couples still together from the show; now, just The Bachelor 6‘s Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado are the show’s only success. Before this most recent break-up, MSN’s TV blog looked back at every couple, surveying the relationship carnage the show left in its wake.
