Here we go again! Just one day after the world watched him get eliminated on ‘The Bachelorette,’ Ben Higgins or ‘Ben H.’ as the world has grown to know him, is the next ‘Bachelor,’ according to a new report.
I don’t want to say I told you so, but I totally told you so. Ben Higgins, 26, is in the final steps of becoming the next Bachelor, multiple sources are telling E! When Kaitlyn Bristowe sent him home on the July 13 episode of The Bachelorette, #BenHForBachelor started trending on Twitter as the ladies can’t get enough — and now they don’t have to!
ABC does not comment on casting rumors, but E! has reported that he is “pretty much a lock.” Ben, a business analyst from Denver, Colorado made it to the final three, but was sent home after overnight dates — Kaitlyn didn’t get the chance to meet his family. So it makes sense that he’d be next Bachelor after landing in third place; Andi Dorfman was third in Juan Pablo‘s season; Chris Soules was third in Andi’s season and Kaitlyn was third in Chris’ season.
Basically, if you get lucky number three, you get to be the next Bachelor.
Women were totally heartbroken when he was eliminated, but he took the high road. After the episode, he shared a sweet picture of them and wrote, “This wonderful girl deserves happiness. Much respect for you @kaitlynbristowe and glad you were our bachelorette.” I mean, talk about being a good sport! Also, his Twitter bio reads “sweetly broken, wholly surrendered.” SWOON! Right ladies?
So, do you think he’ll be a good next Bachelor? Did you want Nick Viall or Shawn Booth instead? What about one of Kaitlyn’s other men? Let us know where your head’s at below and vote.
