It's a question that stumps fans of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" every season: WHY is the driveway always so darn wet?!

The high-gloss formulas work on concrete, stucco, artificial stone and more, reportedly protecting these surfaces from the elements while making them look worthy of a first-impression rose.
It's the more you know, people.
