New ‘Bachelor’ hottie Ben Higgins is dishing all on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ about what life is like on the hit show. But believe it or not, he says that getting to choose from all those ladies was totally not a fun experience at all! Read on for more on Ben’s shocking confession!
Ben Higgins, 27, made the bombshell revelation that being ABC’s The Bachelor is actually no fun at all! Here we thought having 28 ladies chasing after his love, getting to go on exotic trips and vacations and getting to have so much female attention would be any man’s dream, but in Ben’s case it was actually “taxing” and exhausting work!
Ben looked super handsome in a gray suit and pink shirt for his sit down with Jimmy Kimmel Jan. 4. The tall drink of water from small-town Indiana looked completely at ease in his new role as the most sought after man in the world, but for him it wasn’t any fun! When Jimmy asked about the experience he said candidly, “I don’t know if I’d catalogue it as fun. It’s taxing, emotionally you get sucked up in everything and everyone’s nervous….fun is not the word.” Awww, poor Ben. He talked about how hard it was on both himself and the ladies and admits there are plenty of tears shed – Ben included! “Every good thing you try to do hurts someone else,” he added.
He also admitted he watched his debut episode all by himself, as seeing himself on TV makes him somewhat uncomfortable. “I wantched it alone on purpose. I call my parents and warn them” if something naughty is about to happen but the whole thing is a family affair, as even his Grandma is watching along, noting “Grandma having a watch party.” How cute is that?
Jimmy did his annual prediction list as he and his wife Molly watch the show and they’ve correctly picked the winner in the past three seasons just by watching the first episode. According to them, the runner-up with be Lauren B, but the ultimate love champ will be Jojo, who made her grand entrance wearing a unicorn head on the Jan. 4 debut. While Ben played it coy, he said “I like weird stuff, yes” without giving anything else away. So keep an eye on Lauren B. and Jojo because Jimmy and his wife always seem to nail it!
