ROMANCE IS IN THE AIR WITH "THE BACHELOR: LOVE STORIES,"
SUNDAY, JANUARY 19
Follow couples who found success with love,
Including the franchise's original Bachelorette Trista and Ryan Sutter
as the duo renew their vows
Viewers will get to catch up with some of their favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette couples of all time and discover how these love stories have continued long after their final rose ceremonies when Chris Harrison hosts a one-hour special edition of "The Bachelor" entitled "The Bachelor: Love Stories," SUNDAY, JANUARY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Successful couples Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum, Jason and Molly Mesnick and other fan favorites welcome us back into their lives to see how their relationships (and in some cases, their families) have grown, including a stop in Beaver Creek, Colorado, where Trista and Ryan Sutter celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. Over 26 million viewers watched the original Bachelorette say "I do" to the love of her life in 2004. A decade, and two children later, Trista and Ryan are still deeply in love and will display their continued devotion to each other with an extremely moving vow renewal ceremony. And you won't believe the surprise that Ryan has in store for Trista! Here's a hint: it's a tender gift that not only ties back to their wedding, but also connects Trista to all the Bachelor/Bachelorette brides who came after her! However, this night of romance is just the beginning, as America prepares for the wedding of the year between Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. Bachelor Nation's newest sweethearts will not only reminisce about their own journey to find love, but also will tour their gorgeous Southern California wedding venue and luxurious honeymoon suite as they gear up for their own live wedding special on SUNDAY, JANUARY 26 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET)
