ABC’s mega-successful dating-show franchise “The Bachelor” has, without a doubt, become a cultural phenomenon. After its premiere in 2002, the show has not only garnered millions of fans and a female spinoff, “The Bachelorette,” but it’s also produced actual couples.

Though the show has steadily gained more and more popularity — including Hollywood big dogs such as Jimmy Kimmel and Ashton Kutcher as fans — it’s always had a very invested following. In other words, if the fans don’t approve of the winning couple, they’ll make it known.

During the last season of “The Bachelorette,” the show made history with its first African-American lead, 32-year-old Rachel Lindsay. However, it also seemingly made history when her man of choice, Bryan Abasolo, won Rachel’s heart in the end and caused an uproar from fans.

In a nutshell, people believed she chose Bryan because he was willing to propose, not because she actually loved him.

And after a weekend under the sun in Miami, photos of the two getting steamy have upset fans yet again.

Fans called out the two on Twitter as completely “fake,” saying they wouldn’t last:

Although Rachel and Bryan seem very happy with one another, it’s clear the show’s fans aren’t over her season’s turbulent ending. But, like with all relationships, both on and off TV, only time will tell if “The Bachelorette” will have succeeded in sending yet another couple down the aisle
