Michel did not propose to Marsh, but instead they entered into a relationship. Marsh is now married to her childhood friend, Jay Caldwell, and they have a daughter named Chloe.Velvick and Jay Overbye started as two candidate bachelors. On the season's finale, Mesnick had called off the engagement with Rycroft, and resumed a relationship with runner-up Malaney.The show's success has led producer Mike Fleiss to create multiple spin-offs, including The Bachelorette, in which the format is gender-reversed.

The women competing had to vote on which man they would like to be the bachelor. Rycroft is now married to Tye Strickland, and they have three children together daughter Ava and sons Beckett and Cayson.

Flajnik and Robertson originally broke up in February 2012 while their season was airing.

Most roses are presented at a rose ceremony at the end of each episode, but roses can also be bestowed on dates.

Typical activities include If a rose is at stake on a date, the participating women pack their suitcases in case they fail to receive a rose.

The two most notable cases where the bachelor violated the premise of the show are Brad Womack, who selected neither of his final two women, and Jason Mesnick, who in the After the Final Rose episode broke off his engagement and several months later proposed (offscreen) to the first runner-up.

(The two are now married.) For the first two weeks of filming the contestants stay in "Villa De La Vina," a 7,590-square-foot (705 m), six-bedroom, nine-bath home in Agoura Hills, California.The Agoura Hills, California mansion has not been used on several occasions, including during season 7- where filming took place in New York City, home of Charlie O'Connell, who had appeared in Sliders with his brother Jerry O'Connell; Paris, France for season 8; and Rome, Italy- where Lorenzo Borghese, who is half Italian, lived- for season 9.On each Bachelor episode, the bachelor interacts with the women and presents a rose to each woman he wishes to remain on the show. Eliminations are based upon the bachelor's personal feelings about each contestant, guided primarily by the impression made by each woman during dates or other events of the week.The other women learn that a woman has been eliminated when that woman's suitcase is taken away by a crew member.A woman may withdraw from the competition at any time if she is no longer interested in the bachelor.For example, Sean Lowe presented several roses at his initial cocktail party.
