Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi announced on Friday that they would be ending their engagement, and just like that, another Bachelor franchise couple has officially bitten the dust.
While the show and its various spinoffs have produced some long-term couples — Trista and Ryan Sutter, Sean and Catherine Lowe and Jade and Tanner Tolbert are among the pairs married with children — the franchise has also seen its fair share of breakups after the big proposal.
Click through to some of the franchise couples that spent the shortest amount of time together between their engagements and subsequent splits.
Mesnick proposed to Rycroft during his Season 13 finale, before breaking up with her on After the Final Rose, which was filmed before the finale even aired. During the special, Mesnick confessed his love for runner-up Molly Malaney, and the pair is currently married.
While today's Bachelor fans might not quite recognize their faces, the Season 2 pair was engaged for just six months before going their separate ways in February 2003, less than two months after their finale episode aired.
Womack proposed to Maynard during his second go-round as The Bachelor during Season 15, but the pair stayed together for just five months before calling it quits in June 2011. On his first season as The Bachelor, Womack didn't propose to either of his final two ladies.
The Season 19 couple were together for six months before calling off their engagement in May 2015, with Soules later telling Entertainment Tonight their breakup was the "darkest moment."
"We tried really hard and once we both knew it wasn't right, it wasn't right—and that was the hardest part," he said, via E! News. "When something like that doesn't work out, that's the darkest moment."
Viall's season of The Bachelor wrapped up in March of this year, with a romantic proposal in Finland, and he and Girardi moved in together in Los Angeles a few months later.
The couple announced their split on Aug. 25.
