Alex Michel, the very first Bachelor, who also started the Monday nights sensation, is still very much single. Michel’s tenure was almost 18 years ago and is making a comeback as part of ABC’s The Bachelor Greatest of All Time. Some of today’s contestants are too young to even remember Alex’s season when it aired.

Alex gave his final rose to Amanda Marsh however, he did not propose during the finale. The pair continued to date for a brief period after the show. Alex talked about his feelings after the romance. “I thought I was falling in love. Looking back, it’s not reality,” Alex said. The couple made a few public appearances together after their short-lived romance.
After his brief period of fame on The Bachelor, Alex moved on to become a spokesperson for Match.com in 2003. “Whether you’re a Bachelorette television star with 25 bachelors to choose from, or one of the millions of singles with profiles on Match.com today, who often have hundreds of compatible matches from which they can make their dating selections, so much of dating success depends on your choices.
I encourage singles to follow both their heads and their hearts, as romantic magic is part strategy and part chemistry,” Alex advises.
Presently, Alex is a managing director for Generation Consulting, a consulting company according to his LinkedIn profile.
