Is The Bachelor 2016 being faked, or is Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ex Ben Higgins really searching for love and possibly a wife? Over the past few seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, fans have lost a lot of faith in the “process” and the contestants true motives.
When The Bachelor Season 20 spoilers confirmed that Ben Higgins had been selected as the next Bachelor, fans were thrilled by the casting news – they were certain Higgins was a perfect fit and after suffering through Chris Soules and Juan Pablo’s seasons, Ben seemed like he was generally interested in finding love and didn’t have ulterior motives. But, the more and more we learn about Ben Higgins, the more and more we question if he was the right choice after all.
When Bachelor Ben Higgins began dating Kaitlyn Bristowe on Season 11 of The Bachelorette, he won fans over instantly because he seemed shy and completely unaware of how much of a catch he really was. In more than one scene of the reality TV show, Ben discussed how inexperienced he was when it came to dating and relationships – and implied that there had not been a lot of women in his life. However, since The Bachelorette finale – there have been more women in Ben’s life than we can keep track of.
The week that it was revealed that Ben Higgins had been chosen as the 2016 Bachelor, US Weekly reported that Ben had been dating Bachelor In Paradise star Tenley Molzahn. Ben and Tenley reportedly broke up so that he could star on The Bachelor. Then, we learned that Ben Higgins almost, most definitely has a girlfriend back home in Denver named Kelly Osborn, and they were hanging out up until a day before he left for filming. Kelly even posted photos of herself with her Bachelor boyfriend on Instagram.
Now, Bachelor spoiler king Reality Steve is reporting that Ben Higgins was also texting and trying to hook up with Cassandra Ferguson, who also starred on The Bachelor (Juan Pablo’s season) and Bachelor In Paradise this summer. Obviously that didn’t pan out because Cassandra is now dating Bachelor In Paradise star Jonathan Holloway – but that isn’t the point. The point is…Ben Higgins is obviously not the shy and unlucky in love guy that we all thought he was. He’s actually quite the opposite, and is starting to look like quite the player.
With all of these women coming out of the woodwork, Bachelor fans are beginning to question Ben’s intentions already and whether or not Season 20 of The Bachelor is completely fake. And, we can’t say that we blame them. What do you guys think? Is ben really looking for love? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
