Since 2003, ABC's The Bachelorette has brought fans more than enough drama, tears, fights, dates and roses to their TV screens for a lifetime. 16 years later, the show is still going strong. To celebrate, all of the former Bachelorettes recently came together to celebrate the milestone for a special that the network will air on May 6.
Trista Sutter, DeAnna Stagliano, Jillian Harris, Ali Fedotoswky-Manno, Ashley Rosenbaum, Emily Maynard Johnson, Desiree Siegfried, Andi Dorfman, Kaitlyn Bristowe, JoJo Fletcher, Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin all made it to the reunion.
“Even though we’re all different ages we’re all friends,” Ali, 34, who was Bachelorette in 2010 told People. “We’re like sisters, it’s really cool.”
“If I hadn’t had the Bachelorette experience, I don’t think I would have prepared to meet and marry my husband,” Emily, 33, said of her husband, Tyler Johnson, whom she married in 2014 and with whom she has three children. “I have a clear vision of what I want. And I know that my purpose on earth is to be a mom," she said.
Fan favorite Jojo, 28, who has been engaged to winner Jordan Rodgers since her season's finale in 2016, talked about how the franchise has changed her life. “I’ve grown immensely as a person, and as a woman, and I will forever be grateful for that," she said.
