After 18 seasons and more than 360 women left broken-hearted, The Bachelor has reached the end of its latest search for love, with leading man Juan Pablo Galavis ready to hand out his final rose — to nurse Nikki Ferrell or hairstylist Clare Crawley — on the March 10 season finale.
Ahead of the big moment, Us Weekly editors Jennifer Peros and Travis Cronin couldn’t help but revisit some of the biggest, baddest and most tear-filled breakups in Bachelor history.
Included on our list: Repeat Bachelor heartbreaker Brad Womack, who dramatically dumped DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft in 2007, only to propose and break things off with Emily Maynard three years later during a second turn on the series. (Proof of his dirtbag status: “I think I dodged a bullet with that relationship,” Womack once sniped of his time with Maynard.)
And of course, Bachelor fans will remember Ben Flajnik, who lost out on love during Ashley Hebert‘s season of The Bachelorette only to attempt his happily ever after with Courtney Robertson in 2012. Mere months after their engagement, Us Weekly exclusively broke news of Flajnik’s secret trysts — with three women in one weekend!
Jokes Cronin of Flajnik’s exploits: “He made out with them in the middle of the street like he wasn’t even famous and people didn’t know who he was. If you’re going to cheat, be a little sly about it: Get a hotel room!”
