‘The Bachelor’ doesn’t premiere on ABC until tonight, Jan. 4, but Ben just dropped a major hint at the outcome! Watch this interview here.
Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer knows she can’t get too much out of Ben Higgins ahead of The Bachelor premiere, but she’s still going to try (and we’re happy about it!). The 26-year-old hunk stopped by the ABC morning show on Jan. 4 and he teased at a happy ending on season 20 — could he be engaged?
“I think there’s a lot to consider,” he said when asked why at first he turned down the show. “When they asked initially, I think I just wanted to process everything make sure it was the right decision for me… and ultimately it was. It definitely was.” With that he flashed quite the smile, which many started freaking out about.
“I would never take it back,” he continued. Lara also asked if at 26, he thinks he’s old enough to get married. “Yeah, definitely. There isn’t a question in my mind,” he answered without missing a beat.
Of course we don’t yet know if he finds love, but we do know that past Bachelors come on to the premiere to give him some tips — including Sean Lowe. During a recent interview, Sean actually said that he was sure Ben would find someone (and this was after the show was filmed). “I think he will find someone, much like Catherine, someone who doesn’t care to be in the spotlight, someone who maybe doesn’t show up until midway through the season,” Sean said in an interview with HuffPost.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Ben find love? Will you be watching? Let us know! The Bachelor premieres on ABC on Jan. 4 at 8pm ET.
