14 Reality Show Couples Who Lasted And 9 Who Broke Up In Less Than A Year

    Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. 🤷‍♀️

    Reality TV shows are great for bringing us drama and entertainment. They're also great for creating onscreen romances (for the most part).

    Sometimes, those romances that start on our favorite reality shows continue IRL once the cameras stop rolling. But unfortunately, not all reality TV romances continue offscreen.

    So here are 14 reality TV couples that stood the test of time:

    1. Starting off strong with Lauren and Cameron from Love Is Blind. They met on the dating show we all watched during quarantine and have been together ever since.

    Currently, they are about to celebrate their third wedding anniversary and have done just about any and everything.

    2. Amber Pike and Matt Barnett, another couple from Love Is Blind, are going stronger than ever.

    Just like Lauren and Cameron, this couple is also about to celebrate their third wedding anniversary.

    3. Despite a rocky journey and being the cause of way too many rule breaks in Season 2 of Too Hot to Handle, Cam and Emily proved that their time on the retreat worked as they're still happily together.

    They are still thriving and showing the world that all the money they lost on the show was well worth it.

    4. After being on Season 1 of The Bachelor and being runner-up, Trista was the first-ever contestant on The Bachelorette. And that's where she met Ryan.

    The couple has been happily married ever since and now has two children.

    5. Even though Love Island USA Season 3 recently wrapped this past summer, not many couples are still going strong. Cashay and Cinco luckily are.

    Once Cash was voted off the show, she immediately met up with Cinco and they've been together ever since.

    6. Love Island UK Season 6 couple Eva and Nas went through some small challenges, but they found each other at the end of the day and have been together ever since.

    Even though the show ended, that didn't slow Justine down at all.

    Similar to Justine, Caleb has also been keeping very busy since his time on the show.

    19. Sharron and Rhonda on Season 1 of Too Hot to Handle seemed like the perfect match but sadly their spark dimmed.

    These days, Rhonda spends her time in Atlanta living her best life with her adorable son.

    20. For Love Island fans, it wasn't shocking when Amber and Greg won Season 5, especially seeing how much everyone loved them. Sadly, their love didn't stand the test of time and they broke up five weeks after they first met.
