"The Bachelorette" is a spin-off of the American competitive reality dating game show, "The Bachelor". In its January 2003 debut on ABC, the first season featured Trista Rehn, the runner-up date from the first season of "The Bachelor", offering the opportunity for Rehn to choose a husband among 25 bachelors. The 2004 season of "The Bachelorette" again took the runner-up from the previous season of "The Bachelor". After last airing on February 28, 2005, the series returns to ABC during the spring of 2008, following an absence of three years.

*Season 1: Trista Rehn selected Ryan Sutter, and their December 2003 wedding was broadcast in one of the most widely viewed programs in the history of reality television. They welcomed their first child, son Maxwell Alston, on July 26, 2007. They remain the most famous and most successful coupling produced by the television series.

*Season 2: Meredith Phillips chose Ian Mckee, but they ended their relationship in February 2005.

*Season 3: Jen Schefft, selected by Andrew Firestone in Season 3 of "The Bachelor", got a second chance at love, after her relationship with Firestone ended, in The Bachelorette's third season. She chose Jerry Ferris, an art gallery director, over fellow finalist John Paul Merritt in a first live final-rose ceremony. [Last names per [ "Ex-'Bachelor' Andrew Firestone dishes on Jen Schefft, July wedding" by Christopher Rocchio, 06/16/2008] ] During this last episode, Jerry proposed to Jen. She rejected his proposal, however, stating that the chemistry was not there.

*Season 4: DeAnna Pappas the runner-up from Brad Womack on the Bachelor, decided to choose Jesse over Jason. DeAnna and Jesse have set their wedding date for May 9, 2009.
