They gave out their final roses, but what have they been up to since? Welcome to MsMojo and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 10 Bachelorettes: Where Are They Now?

For this list, we’re looking at some of the most memorable Bachelorette leads and where they are today. We’ll be excluding Rachel and Becca since they were part of the most recent seasons– so there aren’t many updates yet!

#10: JoJo Fletcher

Season 12’s bachelorette, JoJo, was so popular with fans after appearing on “The Bachelor”, that producers scrapped their initial plans to have Caila Quinn star in the spin-off show. She ultimately chose professional football player Jordan Rodgers and he proposed in the final episode in 2016, but the two still have yet to tie the knot. We haven’t seen the last of JoJo though, because she has said that she would be open to having their wedding televised. You can watch her and Jordan on their web series, Engaged with JoJo and Jordan on YouTube, where they answer questions about their time on the show and give you a behind-the-scenes look into their life today!

#9: Kaitlyn Bristowe

In a somewhat questionable move, season 11 of “The Bachelorette” actually began with not one but TWO bachelorettes, with the men getting to choose which one would stay. The guys picked Kaitlyn Bristowe, and she went on to give the final rose to Shawn Booth. The season aired in 2015, and in late 2018, the couple had officially announced their breakup. Bristowe has also been working on her own podcast, called "Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe" and has released a scrunchie line! She is also currently dating Jason Tartick, who was one of the final men on Bachelorette Becca’s season.

#8: Andi Dorfman

Bachelor Nation first met Andi during season 18 of “The Bachelor”, when she memorably left the show after spending the night in the fantasy suite with Juan Pablo. When she became the 10th “Bachelorette”, she eventually chose Josh Murray, who proposed to her in the finale. The following year however, the two split, but Andi has been thriving ever since, publishing two books about her experiences: “It’s Not Okay,” and “Single State of Mind.”. She remains positive about her time on the show, saying, “People often ask if the show was good or bad for my life and without hesitation, I always say good.”

#7: Desiree Hartsock

There are fewer and fewer happy endings to be found in the “Bachelor” franchise, but Desiree and Chris are one of them. After getting together on season nine of “The Bachelorette”, the two got married in early 2015. In October of 2016, they brought a new addition home: a son named Asher Wrigley. In January of 2019, the couple welcomed their second child together, named Zander Cruz. Outside of her family life, Desiree is also a wedding dress designer with her own brand. If you want to follow along on this family’s adventures, Desiree posts a lot of content on her Instagram page.

#6: Emily Maynard

Even though she had a couple of chances to find love within Bachelor Nation, ultimately Emily Maynard met her prince charming outside of it. Maynard was the winner of the 15th season of “The Bachelor”, but she and Brad Womack split soon after the finale aired. She then became engaged to Jef Holm, who she picked during her season of “The Bachelorette”, but that didn’t work out either. She then met Tyler Johnson though, and in seemingly no time at all, the couple had had three children together in just two and a half years! She has been busy with her growing family ever since.

#5: Ashley Hebert

Just like Emily, Ashley Hebert was a contestant on season 15 of “The Bachelor”, and she ended up as the seventh “Bachelorette”. In the finale, which took place in Fiji, Ashley chose J.P. Rosenbaum, accepting his proposal. Hebert and Rosenbaum tied the knot in a televised ceremony in December of 2012 in Pasadena with several “Bachelor” alums in attendance. Ashley finished up her dental schooling and is currently working as a Pediatric Dentist. The couple since had two children together, Fordham, born in 2014 and Essex, born in 2016. In 2018, the two headed to Aruba to renew their vows!

#4: Ali Fedotowsky

One of the most successful “Bachelorettes” has to be Ali, who starred in the show’s 6th season. She became engaged to Roberto Martinez, but the two broke up not long after. Her career as a TV journalist flourished though, working for Fox News in San Diego as well as hosting “1st Look” on NBC. She also worked as a correspondent for E! News, and in September 2017, joined the talk show Home and Family on the Hallmark Channel. She eventually met and married fellow TV host Kevin Manno, and the couple now has two children together.

#3: Jillian Harris

Another “Bachelorette” who used the show as a springboard for a successful media career is Jillian Harris. While her relationship with Ed Swiderski may not have panned out, she has managed to translate her interior design skills into frequent roles on home and garden shows. She has worked on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “Canada's Handyman Challenge” and is one of the hosts of “Love It or List It Vancouver”, tasked with redesigning people’s homes to convince them to stay rather than move. She has also found love outside of the show, and now has two children with Justin Pasutto.

#2: DeAnna Pappas

DeAnna was part of one of the most memorable moments in “Bachelor” history, when Brad Womack famously rejected both women in the finale. During her season of “The Bachelorette”, she picked Jesse Csincsak as the winner, and the two became engaged, though they called it off shortly after. All of that went down about a decade ago now, and DeAnna has essentially stopped being in the public eye. She did end up marrying someone with a “Bachelor” connection though- Stephen Stagliano, whose twin brother Michael was a contestant on “The Bachelorette”. They have two children together, Austin and Addison.

#1: Trista Rehn

The very first “Bachelorette” has become one of the franchise’s biggest success stories, in a time where it seems that few of the couples ever stay together. Trista became engaged to Ryan Sutter on the show, and they’re still happily married to this day. They have two children together, and Trista has appeared on a number of different reality shows over the years, including “Dancing with the Stars” and “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.” And how’s this for adorable- Ryan actually kept the rose that Trista gave him in the final rose ceremony, and still has it all these years later.
