Jake Pavelka may have chosen Vienna Girardi on The Bachelor but that doesn’t necessarily mean that a fairytale ending is the cards for the recently engaged couple.  Because if history has taught us anything, the chances of actually seeing couples produced on the ABC reality TV dating franchise walk down the aisle are pretty slim. The only exceptions thus far are Trista and Ryan Sutter from The Bachelorette season 1, and recently hitched Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney from The Bachelor 13

Still, Jake and Vienna could prove their detractors wrong. After all, Jake has made a lot of bold decisions on The Bachelor and has pretty much disregarded everyone’s opinion about his future wife, while Vienna, the most hated bachelorette in the house, has had the last laugh by ultimately winning Jake’s heart. So who’s to say they won’t end up getting married eventually?

But going against the norm is one thing and being blinded by love is another thing. And based on what I’ve seen on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special, it looks like it will take more than a few thumps and rumors to change Jake’s mind about Vienna.

In the meantime, the Bachelor couple plans to move in together immediately in Dallas, where their happy ending has seemingly just begun. Or is it the beginning of the end?

Can Jake and Vienna really live with their decision to spend the rest of their lives together? How long before Jake wakes up and smells the coffee?
