If Bachelor Pad didn't tune you into the fact that being a contestant on The Bachelor or Bachelorette enters one into quite an exclusive social club, let this news do the trick: Three separate couples, all associated with the Bachelor franchise, have gotten engaged this week, including one set of twins, Michael and Stephen Stagliano, who are reportedly now hoping for a televised double wedding to their respective Bachelor star brides.

Ironically enough given the purpose of the show, more love connections seem to take place off camera than on. Behold, the Bachelor wedding web at work:

Michael Stagliano, who appeared on The Bachelorette 5 to compete for the affections of Jillian Harris, announced on Twitter today that he is officially engaged to Holly Durst, who lost out on Matt Grant's love during The Bachelor: London Calling.

Michael's identical twin Stephen, who never appeared on the show as a contestant but did pop up during Michael's hometown visit with Jillian, also popped the question to former Bachelorette Deanna Pappas.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Pappas broke off her engagement to Bachelorette 4 finalist Jesse Csincsak shortly after he won out over Jason Mesnick in 2008.

And thus the Bachelor matrimonial magic comes full circle: Csincsak and girlfriend Ann Lueders, who appeared on The Bachelor 13 with the Pappas-spurned Mesnick, just got engaged over the weekend (and released a video of the proposal to RadarOnline, where you can go watch if you wish).

The Hollywood Gossip cites an unknown source as saying that the Stagliano brothers and their future brides are shopping the idea of a televised double wedding. Once again, Twitter confirms: Durst and Pappas say that they are indeed planning a double wedding, and the details will go public in US Weekly today.

Judging from this adorable engagement photo of the Staglianos and their brides-to-be in matching light blue outfits (from Durst's twitter account), a double wedding is more than appropriate for these four. But will we get to peek in on the festivities through our TVs? Only time--and ABC, the big Bachelor bosses--will tell.
