The Bachelor 2016 finale is finally here, and spoilers indicate that Ben Higgins could be revealing a lot with his possible inclusion on Dancing With The Stars.
[WARNING: Bachelor finale spoilers ahead]
Fans who have been watching this season may have seen the most agonizing decision in Bachelor history, with Ben Higgins very much torn between Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher. Viewers have seen him go back and forth, exchanging “I love you’s” with both women, and seemingly falling for them both.
Through it all, Ben has done his best not to tip his hand, not giving away which woman he will pick on Monday’s finale. In a blog for People magazine, he would only say that he fell hard for both women.
“I am in love with two women. Two very different, but equally remarkable, women,” he wrote. “Believe me, I am just as surprised as you all are and was even more so when it was all starting to happen. Especially considering that going into this, I still had a fear that I may be unlovable, and now here I am with not just one woman that I can see a real and wonderful future with, but TWO. I’m still not sure how it happened but it did.”
But the Bachelor 2016 finale spoilers indicate that Ben will ultimately see his future only with one woman — Lauren Bushnell. That has been the pick of insider Reality Steve, who has correctly predicted the ending of all but one season of the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise.
While these Bachelor spoilers reveal what will happen when Ben Higgins has to deliver his final rose, it hasn’t given a lot of insight onto what happens afterward. There are lingering rumors that Ben and Lauren may be breaking up, as Ben has lingering feelings for JoJo that are reportedly tearing them apart.
There could be another sign that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are headed to a happy ending. As the Bachelor neared its ending this season, it was leaked that Ben is a pick to appear on Dancing With The Stars. The network hasn’t made this official, and Ben hasn’t said for sure if he would appear.
“I’m not against any opportunity that presents itself,” Ben told E! News. “I need to analyze if that option was there to say, OK, is this the best thing for me? I don’t know yet, I don’t. I don’t want to say this is the way I’m going to go with it because I haven’t decided.”
If Ben Higgins were to appear on the show, he would join small group of Bachelor and Bachelorette alums that include Chris Soules, Sean Lowe, Jake Pavelka, Trista Sutter, and Melissa Rycroft — who won during the dancing competition’s All-Stars season. What do all of them have in common? For the most part, they represent the successful couples of the show, those who remained engaged, stayed together for the long run, and even gotten married.
It appears that ABC only picks Bachelor contestants that have a good chance at a lasting relationship, which makes sense from a programming standpoint. Dancing With The Stars and The Bachelor share a very common viewership, and those watching want to see the happy couples together and supporting each other. That would appear to point to a lasting and strong relationship for Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.
Viewers who want to find out if the Bachelor 2016 finale spoilers come true can tune in on Monday night to see who Ben Higgins picks for his final choice, Lauren Bushnell or JoJo Fletcher. And the After The Final Rose special could reveal if he will indeed appear on Dancing With The Stars.
