Ben Higgins proudly headed over ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ with his new fiancée Lauren Bushnell after ‘The Bachelor: After The Final Rose,’ and now that the secret’s out, the pair couldn’t wait to dish on their relationship.
Ben Higgins, 27, was all smiles on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, and even more when he sat down with Jimmy Kimmel, 48 — and his choice, gorgeous southern California flight attendant Lauren Bushnell, 25. The couple played a fun newlywed game that showed how much they really know about each other’s families and personal lives!
Ben and Lauren played “Fiance My Name,” where they had to answer personal questions about each other. They both got their sweetheart’s middle name right, as well as the names and number of siblings, but neither knew each other’s mom’s maiden name, even though Ben got off the hook with the answer “Beautiful.” Awww!
Then they each had to give the name of one uncle, and Ben correctly named her Uncle John while Lauren couldn’t name one of his. Lastly came “name each other’s childhood pet” and Ben proved yet again how well he knows his lady, noting her beloved dog was named Tessa, but Lauren came up short, just describing his “black lab,” that Ben noted was named Zoey. Womp womp. Boy, does Ben sure know his lady well!
Jimmy asked about if they’ve discovered anything new about each other since appearing on the show, and Ben said that while he felt he got to know her pretty well during taping, he found out Lauren loves her rest. “She loves to sleep in and I’m up at 7:30 am, she sleeps until 10 am,” making it hard for the pair to have breakfasts together. But Lauren noted whose boss, saying “I’ve trained him to let me sleep.” Whoa, now we know who’s in charge in this relationship! She also noted that Ben is a heavy mouth breather when he sleeps, and sometimes he’s too loud when he prays.
Jimmy did one of his hilarious segments featuring a montage of “Bachelor Ben’s stares at nothing” moments, which had the audience in stitches. The show spliced together all the moments from The Bachelor that featured him speechless, looking off into the distance, deep in thought across the various locations along his journey to finding true love. It was priceless!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Ben got his pick right? Is Lauren B. truly the one for him?
