Breakups, breakdowns and a Bachelor baby — 2018 was a big year for our favorite dating franchise! 

With Bachelor Winter Games thrown into the mix this year, our Bachelor show total was upped to four, and the drama was through the roof! This year marked a few firsts for the franchise (we had international contestants, the shortest Bachelor engagement of all time and the first Bachelor to propose twice in one season), as well as unfortunate repeat offenders (can we go a year without a social media scandal? Or a big split?), but there’s just something about The Bachelor that keeps earning our roses. 

So, cheers to another great year of drama — scroll down to relive 2018’s biggest Bachelor moments.
