On Monday night, ABC wrapped the ninth season of The Bachelorette with Desiree Hartsock finding love with Chris Siegfried. During an Aug. 6 appearance on LIVE With Kelly and Michael, the couple revealed that they're planning an "intimate" wedding.

"We would like to get married in the summer -- next summer," said a newly engaged Hartsock, who added that she isn't sure if she wants to film their nuptials for ABC. "We want to keep it intimate."

Only time will tell if these two will make it down the aisle. As fans know, most Bachelor and Bachelorette relationships fizzle within the first year. So how can Desiree and Chris make it last?

The Bachelorette Couples: Where Are They Now? 

The Bachelorette season 4 winner Jesse Csincsak advises that in order to make it work, the couple need to get out of the spotlight -- quickly!

"Run for the hills and get out of Hollywood," he said, speaking to EnStars back in June. "Get back to real life if you want it to work. You'll still be offered stuff in the limelight, but you won't have TMZ or cameras on your doorstep."

Although the romance seems perfect in front of the cameras, Csincsak says most couples fake it for the fans.

"The couples are just kept so busy in front of cameras at red carpets and events after the show is over that they don't have time to break up," he told EnStars.

In the history of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, only two couples who got engaged on the show are actually still together. Those two pairs are Trista and Ryan Sutter, who met on the first season of The Bachelorette, and newlyweds Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. (The Sutters will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary later this year.)

Although The Bachelor and Bachelorette appear to be one the most romantic shows on TV, all ending in one epic rose ceremony, the on-screen romance doesn't always last off-screen. The franchise's relationship success rate is pretty low. Former couples including season 16 Bachelor Ben Flajnik and fiancée Courtney Robertson ended their engagement in early October 2012. Season 8 Bachelorette Emily Maynard and fiancé Jef Holm followed suit just one week later.

Season 17 Bachelor Sean Lowe starred in the franchise's 25th season and is still with Catherine Guidici, whom he proposed to on a season's finale. Guidici accepted the proposal and the 3.15 carat sparkling Neil Lane diamond engagement ring that Lowe presented her at the final rose ceremony in Thailand. Although the two have been speaking publicly about their wedding, only time will tell if the Dancing With the Stars alum will actually make it down the aisle.

The two, who have said they will tie the knot on TV, have not started any wedding planning yet.

"We are in no rush," Lowe explained during an interview with Good Morning America following the finale episode.
