'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert Explains Why The Show's Relationships Don't Last (VIDEO)

As fans of "The Bachelor" are all too sadly aware, the dating competition show has only produced three marriages in its 24 seasons -- "Bachelorette" Trista Rehn (now Sutter) married Ryan Sutter in 2003, "Bachelor" Jason Mesnick married Molly Malaney (now Mesnick) , who was not his original choice on the show, in 2010 and newlyweds Ashley Hebert and J.P Rosenbaum tied the knot earlier this month. But Hebert has a theory on why her fellow contestants have been so unlucky in love.

"I think that people feel like they want it to happen so bad and they don't actually trust their emotions," Hebert told "The View" hosts Thursday. "So I think if you stay true to yourself and true to your feelings, and you are yourself, you're acting like yourself, then you get to know the other person a lot earlier." Hebert chose Rosenbaum at the conclusion of season seven of "The Bachelorette."

Rosenbaum, who joined his new wife on "The View," explained that because he didn't know anything about Hebert's dates with his competitors, he was able to focus all of his attention on his own dates with her.

"Ever since the second we met we've just had a connection," Rosenbaum said.

The newlyweds' wedding will air Sunday on ABC. Watch the video above for more details on Hebert and Rosenbaum's nuptials.
