Trista Rehn

THE BACHELORETTE, season 1 (2003): Pediatric physical therapist and former cheerleader Trista Rehn -- runner-up on the very first season of The Bachelor -- got cast as The Bachelorette after "fans rooted for her during the first show," said producer Mike Fleiss, in a People magazine interview. Trista's final suitors were financial analyst Charlie Maher and quiet, poetry-spouting firefighter Ryan Sutter. Although clever editing made it appear that she'd fallen for Maher, Trista offered her final rose to Sutter -- who proposed immediately. Their lavish wedding (the Badgley Mischka bridal gown alone was worth thousands) in December 2003 aired as an ABC special that broke ratings records. The Sutters now live in Colorado with their two children.
