She chose Ryan Sutter, and have become the most successful chosen couple in the two shows' history. Both shows are hosted by Chris Harrison.
The Bachelorette is featured in the episode "Brian the Bachelor", where a woman named Brooke Roberts is the woman looking for a man. After eliminating contestants such as Count Chocula, Trevor, and Frankenberry, her final two choices were Brian Griffin and Glenn Quagmire, and she chose Brian. According to he episode, the winner also receives the duty to pay the mansion bills, which Michael Eisner hands them. This choice misled Brian into thinking there was going to be a longterm relationship, but it turns out she only did it for the show and publicity.
