Tonight, Ryan Sutter will compete on American Ninja Warrior in the Denver qualifiers. Reality TV fans may recognize Sutter from the hit reality series The Bachelorette, and tonight, he’ll be cheered on by his wife Trista as he attempts to make it to the city finals on ANW.

Read on to learn more about Ryan and Trista.

1. Ryan Won Season 2 of the Bachelorette

Trista was the season 1 runner-up of The Bachelor, and was subsequently chosen as the network’s first bachelorette. She chose Ryan Sutter as the winner.

On December 6, 2003, Ryan and Trista were married in a million-dollar wedding near Palm Springs, California. According to Reuters, 300 guests attended the ceremony, and some of them were Trista’s former contestants on the series.

ABC bankrolled the wedding ceremony, according to People. They report Trista as saying, “Never ever would I have been able to afford this.” She wore a Badgley Mischka gown for the wedding, while Ryan wore a tuxedo from Kenneth Cole.

Tying the knot came with its fair share of stresses. According to People, the wedding led to a lawsuit from Rehn’s former manager, “who claims she owes him a commission fee of $200,000 on the $1 million she earned from ABC for the wedding rights.”

2. The Couple Has 2 Children

Trista Sutter, daughter Blakesley Grace Sutter, husband Ryan Sutter rrives at the JCPenney’s “Joy Of Giving” Holiday Event at the Sunset Towers Hotel on December 15, 2009 in West Hollywood, California.

In July 2007, the couple gave birth to their first child, Maxwell Alston, a baby boy born 5 lbs 3 oz. They shared in the news in February, telling People, “We are so happy after two years of trying…” Ryan added, “I am happy to be able to finally be a dad.”

In April 2009, they gave birth to their daughter, Blakesley. She was delivered by c-section and weighed 6 lbs 2 oz.

In an interview, Trista told Life & Style, “She’s healthy. Everything is really good.” A family member told the outlet that the name Blakesley is a family name that dates back to the 1700s.

3. Ryan Is a Colorado Firefighter

The couple currently lives in Eagle County, Colorado, where Ryan works as a Vail firefighter.

Trista, a former physical therapist, is a purse designer.

Ryan prepped for American Ninja Warrior with his children. In a recent interview with Too Fab, he dished:

Its kind of funny, the day after I found out I was going to be on the show, I used every opportunity to do like a pull up or like jump up onto a rock on one leg and balance it was kind of a game I would play with my kids… We would find just little things to jump on or do a pull up or a push up, or something like that. So it kind of because just like an obsessive daily focus. I was always looking for an opportunity to increase my upper body strength and balance.
