Ben Higgins has gone through the 2016 season of The Bachelor with 28 women starting out and hoping to win his heart. After one night, about a fourth of those women were eliminated and sent home without a rose. Now, he’s gone through the drama, the heartache, the strange, and the shocking to get to the season finale. Only two women remain – Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher – and he’s going to make his choice tonight.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelor starring Ben Higgins. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
Honestly, Ben Higgins has not had an overly dramatic season on the hit show, but that was until about two episodes ago. Last week, it was the “Women Tell All” special and things got a bit heated as talks of racism started being thrown around.
The week before that, Ben had three women left as Caila Quinn was still around and it was time for the overnight dates in the Fantasy Suite. As the group enjoyed their time in Jamaica, Ben actually spent the night with all three women and made each of them feel as if they were “the one.”
It got even more serious from there as reported by US Magazine.
“Ben was intimate with all the finalists. The women were all so confident in Ben’s feelings after the fantasy suite dates.”
That being said, Ben had to let one woman go and it was Caila Quinn who was shown the door on that night and sent home from Jamaica.
Still, two women were left and Ben actually ended up saying “I love you” to both Lauren B. and JoJo which cause a lot of criticism online. It also brought some rather harsh words from The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, and he said that Ben’s actions shocked him.
No matter the case, there are two women remaining and the season finale is set to happen tonight. When it does, Ben Higgins will be choosing between JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell as the woman he truly loves and wants to spend his life with as a happy man.
ABC has revealed that Ben is going to meet the parents of both JoJo and Lauren on the season finale and see if he would fit in with their family. There will be some tears from both a man and some women while the final dates take place.
Eventually though, Ben does have to make a choice.
Once all is said and done, even though he told both of them he loved them, Ben Higgins sends JoJo Fletcher home and chooses Lauren Bushnell as the love of his life.
On a beautiful beach in Jamaica, and right by the water, Ben lets Lauren know that she is the one for him and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He lets her know that he wants to “wake up next to her every morning.”
Lauren B. thinks she is the “luckiest girl,” but that excitement does die down a little bit. Ben eventually reveals to her that he also told JoJo he loved her and it did hurt Lauren. Still, they both know that it will be nothing but the truth from this point on, and they will always be happy together.
The 2016 season of The Bachelor is coming to an end, and Ben Higgins started with 28 women but managed to get it down to just one – Lauren Bushnell. Now, the test of life begins after the season finale as the couple begins planning a wedding and their future together.
