So longtime fans of the show may be wondering who is showing up at The Bachelorette Reunion, exactly, and will there be snacks?

Finally, the special will feature an intimate sneak peek of Hannah's hometown, complete with Harrison rifling through her closet, apparently. Needless to say, it's poised to be a jam-packed episode. Here's a quick refresher on every Bachelorette alum you'll see there.
The Bachelor runner-up who started it all will be among the reunion attendees, and she's truly a franchise icon. She not only was the first Bachelorette ever, but she's also still happily married to the recipient of her final rose, Ryan Sutter. The pair have two children together, Max and Blakesley, and currently reside in Colorado.
Deanna was the fourth Bachelorette after competing on Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor. Womack memorably dumped both of his finalists in the season finale, and Deanna went on to accept Jesse Csincsak's proposal on The Bachelorette, rejecting Jason Mesnick. Deanna and Jesse's engagement dissolved a few months later, and she went on to marry Stephen Stagliano, brother of The Bachelorette Season 5 contestant Michael Stagliano. The pair have two kids together, Addison and Austin.
Jillian appeared on Jason Mesnick's season of The Bachelor, and went on to become the Bachelorette after being his second runner-up. She was the series' first Canadian Bachelorette, and got engaged to Ed Swiderski in the finale. However, they broke up the following year. In 2016, she announced she was having a baby with her longtime boyfriend Justin Pasutto. The pair went on to get engaged and they had a second child in 2018.
Ashley was another reject from Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor, and she went on to star as Bachelorette #7. She wound up engaged to J.P. Rosenbaum and the pair are now happily married for six years and counting! They have two kids together.
Emily Maynard Johnson
Emily actually departed Brad Womack's second run as the Bachelor with a ring on her finger. But the pair later split, making her yet another Brad Womack reject who went on to star as the Bachelorette. She walked away from the show engaged to Jef Holm, but they, too, broke up just a few months later. She went on to marry Tyler Johnson in 2014 and the pair have three kids together, in addition to Emily's oldest daughter with deceased NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick.
Desiree is among the few Bachelorettes who wound up happily married to her final pick, Chris Siegfried, after getting dumped on Sean Lowe's season of The Bachelor. The pair now have two sons together.
Andi Dorfman famously walked out on Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor, and after he went down as one of the worst stars in the show's history, she rose from the ashes as the next Bachelorette. She picked Josh Murray at the end of her run, another relationship that ended in disaster and which she chronicled in a book titled It's Not Okay. The former assistant district attorney has been one of the franchise's most vocal champions of single womanhood.
Kaitlyn Bristowe became the Bachelorette under controversial circumstances when, after she'd been eliminated from Chris Soules' season, the show decided to appoint two Bachelorettes and have the male contestants vote on whose roses they'd rather vie for. It was a decision criticized at the time for stripping women of their power on a show that was supposed to be about them.
Kaitlyn went on to inspire a reckoning in the culture of the show when she decided to sleep with a contestant before fantasy suites. She acknowledged that it was a mistake but the slut-shaming vitriol she became the target of sparked a conversation about the show's double standard when it comes to sex. Kaitlyn is currently dating Bachelorette alum from Becca's season Jason Tartnick.
JoJo came to The Bachelorette from Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor and, after a lifetime of dating bad boys, it appeared that Ben had finally taught her the joys of dating a kind one. But, she wound up picking the bad boy of her season anyway. She and Jordan Rodgers are still together and in the process of planning their wedding, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Rachel Lindsay goes down in history as the first black Bachelorette, and, as previously stated, the reunion will feature a special look into her wedding planning with her final pick Bryan. Rachel came to The Bachelorette from Nick Viall's season, where, as the fifth place contestant, she'd made it further than any black contestant in any previous season.
Becca Kufrin famously went down as Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s final pick. Then, just a few weeks into the bubbly publicist's engagement, Arie dumped her in a breakup that the show decided to air "unedited." He went on to get back together with his first runner-up, Lauren Burnham, and Becca became the Bachelorette. She got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, and the pair just celebrated their one-year anniversary.
The Bachelorette Reunion airs Monday, May 6 on ABC.
