Ben Higgins is the new ‘Bachelor’

He may have been eliminated by Kaitlyn Bristowe from Season 11 of “The Bachelorette,” but 26-year old Benjamin Higgins’ immense popularity with his fans has brought him back, this time as the new Bachelor for the 20th season of ABC’s popular reality show.

The announcement came from Chris Harrison in the last episode of ‘Bachelor Paradise: After Paradise.’ Higgins, seemed overjoyed, “It’s incredible. People like me don’t get opportunities like this, and I never would have thought that this opportunity would be something I could have and I’m excited. Everything leading up to this has just been incredible.”


A software salesman by profession, “Ben H,” as he was affectionately called, was immensely popular with fans for his gentle personality; even after he was rejected in favour of Nick Viall and Shawn Booth, he had good-naturedly tweeted his best wishes to Bristowe. This time however, it will be Higgins up on the dais as he returns to the Bachelor Nation.


In response to a question on tying the knot, all Ben had to say was, “A lot of my closest friends are married. They’re starting their families… I’m ready for it. I’m excited to start… sharing my life with somebody.”
