WOW! This week’s episode of ‘Ben & Lauren’ wasn’t like any other. The couple decided to celebrate their anniversary by giving back in a very interesting way. Check out our recap to see how the couple spent their special day. And, did Ben just admit that the wedding is back on? Disclaimer: It’s really emotional…
Ben Higgins, 28, and Lauren Bushnell, 26, really outdid themselves this week! It was their anniversary, and the couple wanted to celebrate it in a way they would never forget. In case you weren’t caught up, Ben and Lauren had a pretty emotionally draining episode last week. Long story short, Ben called off the wedding because he felt as though they were rushing their lives together. So, they decided to spend their anniversary giving back to someone deserving.
Lauren searched for the lucky person who would get the gift of a lifetime from she and Ben, and found the perfect woman — Ranya! This woman is one special person. Ranya has spent her whole life giving back to our troops and their families, by providing them with fresh foods, home goods, and living needs. However, in the process of aiding millions of people, she’s let her home become a half-done project. So, Ben and Lauren wanted to give her a little getaway trip to be pampered while they gave her a complete home makeover!
They contacted friends of Ranya’s and people of the community and everyone chipped in. The couple even got Secret deodorant to sponsor the project! And, the best surprise of all… They had the hilarious help of the twins — Emily and Haley Ferguson. At one point they were running out of time, but just made it with the help of some generous troops who were more than happy to help. After hard work and dedication, they completed the home and it looked amazing! Ranya was so grateful and emotional. It was definitely a moment she will never forget, and neither will Ben and Lauren because it brought them closer together. The best part happened next…

When the project was all finished, it was like Ben and Lauren’s relationship got a complete makeover! They were so happy they were able to spend their anniversary giving back to someone deserving. When the hard labor was done, they had an extended anniversary celebration. Ben surprised Lauren with dinner in their backyard after he debuted life-sized, light-up letters of their initials, “B” and “L”. AH!
The couple talked over dinner and Ben gifted Lauren with the flying pendent she gave him when they first met on The Bachelor, however it had an addition to it. The pendant had their names engraved on it so when Lauren wore it, she could carry the both of them with her everywhere. SO CUTE!
Ben and Lauren talked some more and things got emotional. He told her, the highlight of his year was “proposing to you, and you saying yes… and knowing we were right for each other.” But, Ben did admit his one of the hardest parts of his year was not knowing life wasn’t going to be easy together. Lauren teared up and told Ben, “I can’t live without you.” He replied, “You don’t have to.” Then they kissed and danced in the moonlight, and Ben confessed behind the scenes that maybe he shouldn’t have called the wedding off! OMG! What an ending! Do we hear wedding bells?!
