Can You Tell 'Bachelor' Stars Apart By Their Eyes?

by Molly Freeman

A new season of ABC's hit reality dating competition, The Bachelor , is upon us! And, what a perfect time of year it is. With the winter weather really settling in and Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's a good time to fall in love. Or, to watch someone else fall in love. This year on The Bachelor, fan-favorite Ben Higgins from Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette is setting his soulful eyes on his own potential love interest and happily ever after. Now, they say eyes are the windows to the soul — I'm not sure who first said that, but it's been said so many times that it has to be true, right? — so I wondered: Can you guess these Bachelors by just their eyes?

Sure, there are distinguishing factors about each set of eyes to help you out, like color and shape, but to ace this quiz, Bachelor Nation fans will really have to know the show's 20 seasons of leading men. Seriously, it's not as easy as it looks! So, study up on your favorites from The Bachelor and challenge your fellow Bachelor Nation buds to see who can get the most correct!
