Season 22 of The Bachelor is in full swing. But did you know that if that dreamy couple isn’t together for two years after the final day the show airs, then they have to give the ring back? Here are five other surprising things you might be shocked to know about The Bachelor.

1. How Many Bachelor Couples Have Stayed Together

The first thing you didn’t know about The Bachelor – there has only been one couple so far that is still together: Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici from season seventeen. The Bachelorette, however, has faired much better, with a whopping six couples that are still going strong.

2. The Bachelor Pays Families to Move Out

Next up, that gigantic mansion that they film the show in is really someone’s home. The homeowner is paid an undisclosed amount to move out during the taping. All those tears and champagne are cleaned up after filming, and ABC turns the house back over to the family.

3. The Most Common Bachelor Contestant Name is…

The third thing you didn’t know about The Bachelor is that almost fourteen percent of the contestants this year are named Lauren. Yep, there’s Lauren B., Lauren G., Lauren J., and Lauren S. Hopefully that will help clear up any confusion…

4. There’s a Bit of an Age Gap

On this season, only six of the twenty-nine contestants are in their thirties with an average age of twenty-six. The Bachelor’s average age is thirty-one. But each contestant does have to be at least twenty-one because there is a lot of drinking happening on the show. Maybe a little too much drinking.

5. What’s with Those Bachelor Limo Exits?

And the final thing you didn't know: the contestants are responsible for those limo exits. Yeah…that meant someone did this on purpose.
