They were always there "for all the right reasons." And even now, after 25 combined seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, fans still haven't gotten tired of the drama, cat fights, and hot tub hijinks that make for an amazing season.
Who should win as the best Bachelor of all: Jake Pavelka, who chose bad-girl Vienna only to break up with her in a vicious televised special? Sean Lowe, who vowed to hold off on sex with his pick, Catherine Giudici, until their summer 2013 wedding night? Or Jason Mesnick, who popped the question to Melissa Rycroft, then pulled a switcheroo at the reunion? (He just had a baby with his final choice, Molly Malaney.) And remember Season 2 star Aaron Buerge? He ranks as the highest rated Bachelor of all time, with 26 millions viewers tuning in as he popped the question to Helene Eksterowicz in 2002.
