While there’s no question that The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are must-watch television shows, statistics show that out of a 19 seasons, only two couples have stayed together, while waiting to see how the latest relationship between bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez ends up. These are programs designed to produce long-lasting marriages, yet we often wonder whether we can call them reality TV or merely fantasy, designed to whet the appetite of women and men everywhere.  Season after season, the program dominates the ratings with an average audience of 10 million viewers taking part in a voyeuristic game of watching desperate singles attempt to find true love.

If you’re looking for “happily ever after” and contemplating the reality show route, here are a few things to keep in mind:

After finding love on the reality TV hit, The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez announced that they planned to elope.  Though still head over heels for one another, the happy couple has decided not to tie the knot immediately.  As Fedotowsky recently told People, “Nothing has changed — we’re still just as happy as we were when we were finished [with the show]; we were so excited.  We were like, ‘Oh, we’re going to get married right away.’  But if you’re rushing because you’re in love, why rush?  [Just] wait.  You’re going to get married anyway.  We’re both sort of enjoying life.”  The soon-to-be newlyweds have moved to San Diego together and are considering wedding venues on the west coast.Why is it important to take things slow?

Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky recently ran into an unexpected woman from her past: Vienna Girardi, former fellow contestant and fiancée of Jake Pavelka.  On season six of The Bachelor, Ali and Vienna went head-to-head in a competition for Jake’s heart.  In the end, Vienna snagged Jake, only to have their very public breakup displayed on Ali’s season of The Bachelorette a few months later.  The reality stars came face-to-face again at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge at Montage Beverly Hills, where they kept the conversation short.  An onlooker told US Weekly, “Ali made sure to keep her distance while hanging with girlfriends,” but both said ‘hi’ briefly.

(Spoiler alert!) Last week on ABC’s The Bachelorette, a competitive reality dating game show, Ali Fedotowsky, had a one-on-one date with contestant Ty.  She found out he ended his previous marriage because his ex-wife worked, and he was looking for a traditional stay-at-home mom.  Traditional is something that Ali is certainly not.  “I imagine a lot of the women cringed when they heard Ty make the comment about women being presidents of companies,” Fedotowsky told Reality TV Calender last week. “Ha ha. Trust me, I cringed too.”  Ty ended up being eliminated last night – Ali was still concerned about his traditional values.

What should you do if you’re dating a man who expects a “traditional” wife, and you are anything but?
