It's been six months since The Bachelors. Here's what the cast have been up to since.

The Bachelor season 10 – which was actually The Bachelors, plural! – was a moment in time.

It was small and mostly forgettable, but still! A moment nonetheless!

The series, starring three leading men looking for love/publicity, aired throughout January 2023, and I hate to be the one to tell you this, but... that was six months ago.

Watch: The Bachelors trailer. In case you need your memory jogged. Post continues below video.

I know, I know.

So, what's happened since? Here's what the Bachelors and their winning women have been up to since.

Thomas and Leah.

Despite professing their love for each other and getting engaged on the show, Thomas and Leah went their separate ways a few months after the finale.

"I think it was two or three months after the finale," Thomas told 10Play.

"We had an amazing time together, and we spent incredible moments together on the show and also after the show...but we realised, spending time together, we had lots of love and care for each other but we weren't compatible and compatibility is so important."

"We made the decision to stay friends, to still support one another but obviously go our different routes finding love."

Leah also said it was amicable at the time, but in May, she told The Advertiser that Thomas allegedly "doesn't believe in modern medicine".


She claimed that things took a turn soon after the series.

"Now that my rose-coloured glasses are off… when we went on our first date [after the show], he told me he wasn't vaccinated," she said, adding that he reportedly asked her to "not get the fourth vaccination".

"I'm upset because I considered it because I was in love with him," she said.


Leah, who has asthma, said she found herself having to use her ventolin privately when she was with Thomas.

"He said, 'I think you have asthma because you believe you have asthma,'" she said. 

"My mum's sister died of asthma."

In response, Thomas told The Advertiser he was disappointed that their relationship was now being "dragged through the mud".

These days, Thomas is doing fine, sharing fitness and uh, biohacking(?) content on Instagram.

Leah is working as a personal assistant to an Adelaide orthopaedic surgeon, as well as a makeup artist.

At the end of the season, Jed and Alesia got not-officially-engaged, despite him dropping to one knee and Alesia agreeing to wear the ring in the finale episode.

Following the finale, Jed told 10Play that he and Alesia were in a "really good place".

"We're taking it day by day and are excited to actually just have a coffee with each other and live a normal life after this," he said.

"We've had to hold a relationship together by phone and text," Alesia said. "To not have actually have gotten out to have a coffee with someone is so odd in a dating sense.

"It'll be good that we can actually go out and do that and see what it's like to be with each other in a normal setting."

Despite this, they always seemed like they were more 'hanging out' than officially dating. 

In Feb, Alesia replied to an Instagram comment saying they "aren't 'in a relationship' but we are in a really good place".

And then a month later, she shared they were "no longer together" – while they were out to dinner together.



Things cleared up slightly when, according to So Dramatic!, Alesia's friend uploaded a photo of her kissing actor Darren Barnet. AKA... Paxton Hall-Yoshida from Netflix's Never Have I Ever.

He was in town for a few months filming a rom-com with Sydney Sweeney and Glenn Powell.

Since then, both appear to just be living their lives, full of travel, drumming and nail polish.

You know the drill by now: no, Felix and Jess did not last. Like, at all.

Moments after the finale aired, the pair confirmed that they had split.

"I've been in a long-distance relationship in the past and it's incredibly strenuous because if you feel strongly about someone, you want them to always be around you. With us, we didn't know when the show was going to air or what was going to happen," Felix told 10Play.

"We're still on great terms, we're still incredibly close and we've chatted throughout the process."

Jess then added that it had been difficult to "kick off a relationship".

"I still care for him as a person and I think he was a massive part of my life, I would never want to discredit that, but from the get-go, I knew he wasn't going to be my life partner and he deserves someone who is completely all the way in and not half in."

Jess is now in a relationship with a man named Spiro Xerras.

And Felix is busy working as a sports commentator and posting photos of himself with cute animals on the Gram.
