WINNING 'BACHELORETTE' COUPLES: Where are they now?

It's hard to believe, but "The Bachelorette" has been on the air since 2003.

ABC's hit reality series wrapped up season 12 when JoJo Fletcher said "yes" to the proposal of Jordan Rodgers, a former pro football player and brother of Greenbay Packers quarterback Aaron.

But when "The Bachelorette" launched in 2003, no one knew it was going to last so long. After failing to get a big audience, the show went off the air in 2005 before it came back to TV in 2008, revamped and ready for drama.

Today, it's now one of ABC's best performers and responsible for producing (and populating) multiple spinoffs, including "Bachelor in Paradise." But after 12 seasons, what has become of the many bachelorettes? 

Shocker: The majority aren't with the winner they fell in love with over the course of a short few months.
