Andrew Firestone is now married to actress Ivana Bozilovic and they have three children together, son Adam Brooks (b. 2009), daughter Anja Jasmine (b. 2011) and son Shane (b. 2014).

Jennifer Schefft went on to star in the 3rd season of The Bachelorette. She originally rejected both men in the finale. During the first live final rose ceremony, she chose Jerry Ferris, an art gallery director, over John Merritt. Ferris proposed to Schefft, but she rejected his proposal, stating that the chemistry was not there.

Jennifer ultimately married Chicago public relations executive Joe Waterman in May 2009; they have two children, Mae Elizabeth and Charlotte Grace.
