With ABC’s The Proposal in full swing, fans are dying to know if the show’s first five couples, Mike Crow and Monica Villalobos from Episode 1, Ashlee Hewitt and Jordan Coon from Episode 2, Stephen Lukinovich and Sophia Schöenau from Episode 3, LisaRaye McCoy and Anthony Bryant from Episode 4, and Dr. Buck Parker and Nicole Kulovany from Episode 5 are still together.
As of now, the relationship stats are at about 50/50 of couples who made it work vs. couples who called it quits! Here’s hoping that love wins out for the rest of the season. (However, as we know, most reality TV couples don’t get their happily ever after.) So keep scrolling to find out where your favorite Proposal couples are now.
Mike Crow and Monica Villalobos: Still together and engaged
According to People, Mike, a police officer from California, and Monica Villalobos are not only still together, but still engaged. During Mike’s episode, he was able to narrow down all ten ladies to the final two mystery gals and of course, the lovely Monica was one of them.
He eventually popped the question (after an hour) and believe it or not, she said yes! Nowadays, the duo is more in love than ever. In fact, they recorded a video for the show’s official Twitter account expressing just that.
"Hey guys," Mike began. "Never thought anything like this would happen in a million years, never thought I’d be on television, never thought I’d get down on one knee and propose to somebody in under an hour — but it happened and I got to meet this beautiful gal. We’re having a good time and we’re excited for what the future has in store for us," he said. How sweet!
Ashlee Hewitt and Jordan Coon: Not together
While Ashlee Hewitt and Jordan tried to make things work following their appearance on The Proposal, they sadly called it quits. Only July 6, Ashlee took to Instagram to explain (in a post that has since been deleted) the emotional situation to fans and she cited that distance was the reason they split. "I am thankful for this experience and thankful for meeting Jordan," she concluded the message. Good for them for handling things maturely!

You’d think with names like Sophia and Stephen, these two would be destined to make it. Unfortunately, that’s not how things played out. That said, just because they didn’t end up together romantically, doesn’t mean it wasn’t a happy ending! In fact, both Proposal contestants took to the show’s official Twitter on July 3 to share their thoughts about their experience and Sophia's was especially sweet.
"Stephen is one of the most genuine, loving guys I have ever met and I really don’t have a bad thing to say about him," she began. "Unfortunately, I was graduating [college] and moving back to New York, and we kind of just realized [that] we were better off as friends. We are no longer together," Sophia continued. Sounds like a case of the right person at the wrong time, if you ask us!
However, the NY native continued that she and Stephen "talk all the time" and that "hopefully, he’s coming to visit" her. Good for them! Who knows? Maybe these two will rekindle their love connection at a later date.

Despite the fact that Adonis Gonzales was a sexy fireman who loved to dance, LisaRaye took the plunge with sweet, quiet Anthony Bryant. By the end of Episode 4, he was down on one knee and LisaRaye was saying yes! Fortunately, the beautiful couple is still together today.
A producer on The Proposal, Mike Fleiss, took to Twitter following the episode on July 9, to announce the joyous news. “Here’s some info on tonight’s episode of [The Proposal]...the couple is still together!!!” he wrote.
How amazing! We can’t wait until LisaRaye starts posting pics with her new boo on Instagram. We want more relationship cuteness.
Dr. Buck Parker and Nicole Kulovany: Still together and engaged
Ironically enough, Nicole was the first gal to be introduced on Dr. Parker’s episode of The Proposal — fans should have known right then and there that she was going to be the winning lady! After a pretty intense third round, the NYC model beat out Stacie and Katie for the doctor's heart and the rest was history.
Dr. Parker, who is affectionately known as Buck, got down on one knee, slipped Nicole a gorgeous engagement ring, and they shared some passionate kisses. The show's official Instagram account happily reports that the couple is still going strong today.
Be sure to catch The Proposal Mondays at 10 P.M. ET on ABC.
