Wedding plans, house hunting and job searching! The Nov. 1 episode of ‘Ben & Lauren’ was filled with life’s biggest hurdles! The usually happy couple was not so pleasant as they were trying to survive starting their life together. But, they got some help from your favorite ‘Bachelor’ stars! Check out our recap!
Ben, 28, and Lauren, 26, really gave us a scare this week! We always knew they were unbreakable, but their relationship was really put to the test on this emotional and stressful episode!
First task on the “let’s begin our dream life together” list: House hunting. When the couple start to look for their dream home, it’s not as easy as they thought. So, Ben calls Lace Morris to help them search for a future place to “build their roots” as Lauren would say. Let’s pause — Who knew Lace was a realtor?… Maybe she has more in common with Chad Johnson than we thought?
Well, Lace ends up bringing them to a haunted house instead of an actual home. Then, she shows them Lauren’s dream home, and that’s when things go from stressful to just plain rocky. Ben and Lauren disagreed about finances, and then it lead to him saying she wanted too many things. Ouch!
Next up, job searching. (This photo above will make sense in just a second). Incase you guys didn’t know, Lauren was a flight attendant when she joined The Bachelor. Well, not anymore. She reveals that she couldn’t do that anymore after the show because she wasn’t able to do her job “efficiently.” This was due to the fame from the show. CRAZY! So, after she tries and fails to basically be a zoo keeper, she realizes that fashion and lifestyle blogging is her calling.
She threw a huge party in LA for the launch of her blog and some of your favorite Bachelor starlets joined in on the fun to support her. Becca Tilley and Ashley I both celebrated her blog launch! We love visits from the Bachelor family!
Last but not least, the biggest feat of them all — Wedding plans. After all of the stress from their other issues, cake tasting was the last thing they wanted to do. On top of the photos, the food and the finances, Ben had enough. He totally flipped on Lauren when she didn’t know he was allergic to coconut, (yes, coconut), and it led to him second guessing everything! Now, we know Ben was just frustrated, and it really wasn’t over something as little as cake.
At the end of the episode Ben went to a batting cage with his friend and he had a huge vent session about his take on their tumultuous wedding plans. This week concluded with Ben’s reservations about actually tying the knot! In the previews for the next episode (which isn’t on for two weeks, Nov. 15, FYI), it looks like Ben calls off the wedding to Lauren’s face as she is seen crying! OMG! How are we supposed to wait two whole weeks?!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Ben and Lauren will be able to figure out their wedding plans?
