It is down to the wire for Ben Higgins. He is about to choose which woman that he wants to spend the rest of his life with on The Bachelor. Actually, he has already chosen one of them, but viewers have yet to see the finale, which is coming up in two weeks. Will it be Lauren or JoJo? Ben has chosen one of the ladies and not only that, but he has confirmed that he is definitely engaged. In fact, he is shouting it from the rooftops.
This is the first time that The Bachelor has mentioned anything about the ending of how the show has turned out. He has pretty much kept mum about whether he proposed marriage, or even picked either of the two women. On Tuesday, he exclusively told Good Morning America that he now has a fiancée. Higgins couldn’t seem to hold back his excitement.
“I am engaged! It’s a pretty big deal. You don’t know how much stress and weight that is to carry on you for so long.”
He said that he could finally reveal to the world that he is getting married. Last night was a tough one for The Bachelor, as he was left with three women, Lauren, JoJo, and Caila, who are all in love with him.
Of course, that is how it pretty much goes for every woman who is left at the end. All three ladies have confessed their undying love to this man, and Ben also confessed his love as well on Monday night. However, it was not just to one of them, but he said “I love you” to two of the women. Yes, he did indeed confess his love to two women back-to-back. He has certainly got his web all tangled up at the moment.
Unfortunately for Caila, she was not one of the women who he said “I love you” to. She was totally shocked when Ben sent her home on The Bachelor. She was pretty sure that he loved her back, but that was not the case. When she was interviewed on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Caila was asked if she had any regrets. She said that she had no regrets, but that she was hurt that he didn’t love her back.
“I have no regret what so ever. I would have regretted not giving my whole heart to this experience and I really felt like I did that and I fell in love. It really does hurt me that he didn’t but I can’t help that.”
It sounds like she is doing okay now, but Caila will have her questions that she can fire at Ben on The Woemn Tell All. That will air next week when all of the women that he booted off the show will be all together with their comments and questions for The Bachelor. The following week, fans will get to see just who Ben Higgins picks to be his wife.
“When I got this opportunity to be the Bachelor, the part I never thought about was having to sit in front of a firing squad of my ex-girlfriends. Many of whom were not too happy when I said goodbye to them. Maybe Caila most of all. That was maybe my hardest goodbye and I haven’t seen her since that moment she got into the car and Jamaica. I have no idea what to expect but I think I get now why they call that seat next to Chris Harrison ‘the hot seat.’ “
The Bachelor fans will have to wait another two weeks before it is revealed whether Ben chose Lauren or JoJo to spend the rest of his life with.
Who do you think will be the future Mrs. Ben Higgins?
