Yep, buckle your seat belt for this season of The Bachelor, because this is about as risque as Ben Higgins comes.
Us Weekly confirms that the 27-year-old will be the 20th lead of The Bachelor and let me tell you…it’s gonna be…probably pretty underwhelming. Sure, the software salesman is aiight to look at and isn’t a terrible human, but come ON.
Also according to US Weekly he turned down a promotion at work and halted a romance with Season 14’s Tenley Molzahn. Says the source, “They want to hook up but haven’t. They’re being careful not to jeopardize Ben H.’s Bachelor stint.”
Bristowe’s fiance, Shawn Booth, for one, wants his former competitor to find love: “He’d make the perfect Bachelor. He deserves nothing but the best.” First, though, Ben H. will have to get used to reality stardom.
“I’m not extremely comfortable with the attention,” he told Us in July of reality show fame. YA THINK? Watching this dude on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season was like watching really, really hot paint dry.
