'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' have started to get extremely popular among a millennial crowd obsessed with finding true love. On the show, one guy or girl is wooed by a large number of suitors through a combination of dates and romantic evenings. At the end of the show, two people find their fairytale ending, fall in love, and get married. Sounds pretty good, right?

All a myth

The reality TV shows are probably the furthest thing from reality you could ever watch. A majority of the couples who find love on these two shows end up breaking things off less than a year later. And there have only been a handful of people who have actually stayed together after their time on the show.

It's great that these people stayed together, but facts tell us that this is an extremely rare case.

As of now, there are just three couples who have remained together after spending time on 'The Bachelor.' Just three out of twenty couples? I thought these people had fallen in love and were going to live happily ever after? Maybe the women of 'The Bachelorette' have had more success with their choices.

'The Bachelorette'

Twelve seasons of 'The Bachelorette' have actually produced several successful relationships. Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, who were on the first season, remain together and are happily married. Two other couples from the show are in the same boat. And JoJo Fletcher could join them if she actually falls for Jordan Rodgers, who has ripped his brother and used the show as a stepping stone for his career path.

Somehow I don't think that relationship will work out.

But seven of those twelve couples have already failed! An overwhelming majority of the love found on reality Television landed in heartbreak central. Maybe it's time to finally accept the fact that you can't force love between two people on a television show like 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette.'

True love

It's amazing that some people were actually able to find amazing partners on the two shows, but a far greater majority failed to find a suitable one. Less than 30% of the people on these two shows were able to find the love they were looking for. Those individuals who failed to form a successful relationship will now look to form them in real life, where everything might not be perfectly romantic all the time. For now, America will just continue to enjoy the entertainment provided by well produced shows like 'The Bachelor and 'The Bachelorette.'
