Ben Higgins was one of the best-loved characters on this season of “The Bachelorette”, and with good reason: he’s successful, good-looking, and respectful.
Plus, now he’s single, so that helps.
It was sad to see him go after bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sent him home as the third runner-up, but there’s a pretty big silver lining: Higgins is reportedly “pretty much a lock” to be the new Bachelor, according to E! Online.
The former contestant, who is a 26-year-old software salesman from Indiana wouldn’t be formally announced until after the current season wraps, E! writes, but if chosen Higgins would be the star of the 20th season of the show.
