Michel did not propose to Marsh, but instead they entered into a relationship. Marsh is now married to her childhood friend, Jay Caldwell, and they have a daughter named Chloe.
It is common to accuse a contestant of not being on the show "for the right reasons", meaning that her aim is not to establish a relationship with the bachelor, but rather to garner publicity for her own career, induce jealousy in an ex-boyfriend, become selected as the next Bachelorette, or simply to get a free trip to exotic locations.During the course of the season, the bachelor eliminates candidates (see The elimination process), with the bachelor typically proposing marriage to his final selection.The participants travel to romantic and exotic locations for their adventures, and the conflicts in the series, both internal and external, stem from the elimination-style format of the show. In practice, the show does not always follow its designed structure, and those variations are often a source of drama and conflict.AND Syndicated Productions(2002-2009)(seasons 1-13)NZK Productions Inc.(2010-present)(season 14-present)Next Entertainment Warner Horizon Television(2006–present)(season 9-present)Telepictures Productions(2002-2006)(seasons 1-8) The Bachelor is an American dating and relationship reality television series that debuted on March 25, 2002 on ABC.
