Let us behold upon the ‘Perfect Ben’ as we’re getting our first look at Ben Higgins’ journey to find love on the upcoming season of ‘The Bachelor.’ He looks as dreamy as we remember in the new promo for the show, where he gets to take center stage.
Kaitlyn Bristowe, what were you thinking when you eliminated gorgeous Ben Higgins, 27, from The Bachelorette? The good news for us is her cast-aside is now the one who gets to go looking for love as ABC’s newest The Bachelor, and we’ve got a sneak peek of the lovely ladies the handsome hunk is going to be handing out roses to. He’s even getting a series first – a set of blonde identical twins – to choose from, so this should make for a pretty sizzling season!
Ben Higgins is looking for love and we’re getting our first look at his new journey! ABC has debuted the new promo featuring what they call the “Perfect Ben” as in the saying “perfect ten,” which we gotta say is a lot smoother than poor Chris Soules‘ nickname, “Prince Farming.” And Ben does look perfect, he’s even more handsome than we remember on The Bachelorette!
Already the ladies are loving their new suitor, as during the first episode one contestant raises her wine glass and says “cheers to the hottest man in America,” to which the other women gladly toast to. We also get to see a number of them as they make their grand entrances to meet Ben for the first time as they exit their limos. Ben looks thrilled and confident as the new Bachelor but he’s even caught off guard saying “no way” when a set of blond identical twins step out, causing him to ask for a “group hug,” which the ladies respond in unison, “yes please!” We hope as the competition goes on that he’s able to tell them apart because if they weren’t wearing different gowns, we sure couldn’t!
Ben’s journey to find true love looks to be an adventurous one. The business analyst is seen going on a hot-air balloon date, as well as going on a helicopter trip, though it isn’t clear where the locale is. He also watches a romantic fireworks display along a city skyline with his lovely dates. Ben is also shown getting quite affectionate, tenderly hugging one constant while sweeping another one up and into his arms. We’ll all get to meet the ladies competing for Ben’s heart when The Bachelor Season 20 kicks off Jan. 4 at 8/7c on ABC.
