Every Rose Has Its Thorn! Bachelor Nation Couples Who Have Split in 2020
US Weekly 2hrs ago
Final rose not accepted. In Bachelor Nation, 2020 has consisted of the shocking end to Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor, the announcement of a new Bachelorette and then the season being delayed. Once The Bachelorette — with Clare Crawley at its helm — began, she chose to leave and Tayshia Adams was brought in. Amidst all of that, Matt James was announced as the new Bachelor for a season that won’t air until 2021. However, Bachelor Nation is all about finding love. Unfortunately, 2020 has seen quite a bit of heartbreak. Such an interesting beginning — like finding love on national television — sometimes ends up being the reason for the split. “I think one of the biggest issues was me going from one show to the next, with really no time to process,” Chris Randone told Us Weekly exclusively of his split from Krystal Nielson. The pair, who met on Bachelor in Paradise and married in June 2019, announced their split in February. “Because I think after I got eliminated from [Becca Kufrin’s] season [of The Bachelorette], it was only a couple of weeks where I was back on another show. But I traveled back, my sister had a baby, and then I literally was back on a plane to Mexico.” For others, being in the public eye makes it tougher to handle the split. Kufrin tearfully revealed that she and Garrett Yrigoyen had called it quits in September, via her “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast. “It’s really hard to be sitting here talking with you all today and admitting this because I don’t think anyone is prepped for giving a public statement for a breakup,” she said at the time. “We went on this crazy TV show over two years ago in hopes of finding love, and we were lucky enough that we did,” the season 14 Bachelorette continued. “We really, truly did. I’m so grateful for that opportunity and to have had the two-plus years with Garrett. Like I said, I still have so much love and compassion in my heart for him. Just because we’ve arrived at this decision now doesn’t take away all of the years and the countless memories that we’ve made together. I will always look back at this time in my life with so much gratitude and love.” Scroll through the gallery below for all the Bachelor Nation couples who called it quits this year.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
