Season 10 of the Bachelorette premieres tonight, with Juan Pablo-dumper Andi Dorfman reappearing on our TV screens to get a second chance at finding foreverlove. Though the Bachelor franchise is a frequent punchline given its longevity compared to the amount of successful matches it has made (we picture just about every fight in Trista and Ryan Sutter’s home ending in a variation on “We can’t break up. Harrison would never get over it”), the franchise is certainly adept at producing a whole lot of matches, period — however short-lived they might turn out to be.

In that spirit, before we meet Andi’s crop of new suitors, we invite you to study our breakdown of Bachelor, Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad alumni hookups. Pay attention; there might be a quiz later.
