Even though Bachelor Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell called off their upcoming wedding, the couple is not breaking up just yet. In fact, reports indicate that Ben and Lauren are looking to monetize on their relationship like no other reality television couple has done before.
Seeing how so many ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ alums have had very nasty public fights and break ups before them, both Ben and Lauren know they have to keep their showmance going if they plan on being regular television fixtures. Just like many couples before them, even ‘The Bachelor’ fans know that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell both decided to participate on the show for the fame and money.
And now that ratings for their Freeform network show, ‘Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?’ are sinking, the couple needs to think up of a plan fast to not only keep their names in the tabloid headlines, but avoid getting their show pulled off the air, too. That’s why there’s so many confusion as to why Ben and Lauren called off their upcoming wedding even though they claim they are still together.
Ben himself admitted that the couple simply couldn’t deal with the pressure and stress that came with preparing and organizing for their wedding. But as many fans and critics know, Ben and Lauren simply don’t want to be left humiliated by having a televised wedding that no one will watch. That’s why they are hoping that by fabricating drama between them, they can rev up fan interest about their engagement without making the same mistakes that ‘The Bachelor’ couples have made before.
That’s why they are calculating every move they make going forward, including breaking up and rescheduling their wedding, all the while keeping their fans and the public guessing and on their toes. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell know that the only successful reality television couples are the ones that stay in the gossip headlines, as many people want to see them fail just as they want to see them succeed.
So far, both Ben and Lauren have not made any comments as to what they plan on doing next. Of course, it’s not surprising that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell wants to keep everyone in suspense, especially since they are desperate to bring up viewership before they both end up in celebrity obscurity. After all, they’ve seen it happen to plenty of Bachelor couples before them. Come back to CDL for all The Bachelor news and reports!
