Each and every season of The Bachelor brings about a new set of women looking to win the heart of a man that couldn’t find love with just one. Such is the case for the 2016 season, where 28 women have been pining for the love of just one man, and it’s brought about some dramatic and controversial moments that have the fans talking. With that, host Chris Harrison has some some interesting things to say about Ben Higgins and what he really thinks.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new season of The Bachelor starring Ben Higgins. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
There are two episodes left this season and one is the “Women Tell All” special airing on Monday. 17 ladies will return to talk about their time with Ben and what it was like to spend it with the other women and then be sent home.
After that, the season finale for this season of The Bachelor will take place, and that is when Ben Higgins reveals who he loves and who he picks. It all comes down to JoJo Fletcher or Lauren Bushnell, and he needs to select who he loves — even though he has admitted he loves them both.

Yes, Ben did tell both JoJo and Lauren that he loved them during the Fantasy Suite happenings for the overnight dates. Fans were shocked around the world and had plenty to say on social media, but host Chris Harrison had plenty to say as well.
After word got out that Ben had been intimate with JoJo, Lauren B., and the recently eliminated Caila Quinn, Harrison had strong words to say. Buddy TV revealed that the host of The Bachelor wasn’t overly impressed and believed Ben was “not gentleman enough” in his actions.
Once he had been intimate with all three finalists on separate overnight dates, Ben told JoJo and Lauren B. “I love you,” according to Us Magazine.
Yes, Chris Harrison did say that “a gentleman can still be a generous lover,” but that seemed almost like a cop out. He had something rather harsh to say about the current bachelor, and needed to make it better, but he wasn’t done.
Hollywood Life had even more of what Chris Harrison had to say, and it once again led to the situation with Ben telling two women he loved them. Sometimes, a person can’t end up ever finding “the one,” but Higgins appeared to find more than one.
“I was a little bit shocked that he really did get there with two women.
“It’s not something you can script. It just doesn’t work like that and he’s just not that good of an actor. It really just was something that happened and it took us all a little bit by surprise.”
Chris Harrison wasn’t the only one who was shocked by the actions of Ben Higgins this season on The Bachelor. Many of the fans and viewers have been surprised by what has taken place, but they do appear to love the two finalists and have no real issues with them.
Still, Harrison believes that Ben Higgins reminds him of someone and it happens to be a former contestant.
For those that may have just started watching, that someone is Jason Mesnick who was the bachelor in Season 13 of the popular show. Mesnick is famous for actually changing his mind during the After the Final Rose special and switching from one woman to another.
“And then in the finale, obviously, you’ve seen how emotional Ben gets – he does pull at least a 3/4 Mesnick. He is that emotional. He really narrowed it down to two women that he loves and he is trying to make this decision. He knows that he’s going to hurt somebody and he knows that he’s going to lose somebody he cares about, so it is really moving. I think people are going to love it.”
Chris Harrison may be the host of The Bachelor, and some think he should be unbiased, but he’s human and he has his opinions. Some of the things that Ben Higgins has done this season and that’s been revealed by spoilers have been quite questionable, but it’s obvious that he isn’t in a normal, everyday situation.
