Is Ben Higgins The Tallest 'Bachelor'? The Show Has Seen Some Height Over The Years
The time has come! Fans have waited long enough and now 28 lovelorn women are here to compete for the heart of one man. That's right, Season 20 of The Bachelor is upon us and with it comes a new man for viewers to either love or loathe. (But, based on his time on Kaitlyn's he's gonna be pretty popular for fans). This season of The Bachelor features the uber handsome, tall drink of water Ben Higgins. And, friends, there is heavy emphasis on the "tall" part of that. At times, it seems like the man is nearly skimming the clouds. We have seen a wide range of the height spectrum throughout the past 20 seasons of the show but Ben may take the prize of tallest bachelor. So at 6'5", is Ben the tallest Bachelor?
Well, he almost gets the prize on this one. But it seems like the tallest Bachelor is actually Season 12's Matt Grant who stands at a reported 6'5", an inch taller than Ben. Still, our current Bachelor is pretty damn tall. Looking back on Ben's time competing for Kaitlyn Bristowe's love, it becomes pretty obvious just how tall 6'4" really is. She may be pretty petite but he legitimately towers over her.
Anyway, here's how Ben stacks up compared to the rest of The Bachelor leading men (in order from shortest to tallest).
Jake Pavelka - Season 14
Definitely standing a tad below the rest of the gentlemen, Jake is representing the little guys.
Andrew Firestone - Season 3
I couldn't find his height anywhere, but he looks to be about Chris Harrison's height which is reportedly 5'10" (although I swear he looks taller).
Lorenzo Borghese - Season 9
Respectable. Lorenzo isn't winning the height award, but he also isn't the shortest of the bunch.
Juan Pablo Galavis - Season 18
Pretty average for a guy.
Andy Baldwin - Season 10
But you wouldn't know it when you see him dwarfed by Matt Grant in this pic.
Aaron Buerge - Season 2
Now we are getting into the competitive territory.
Alex Michel - Season 1
Does anyone even remember this far back in Bachelor history?
Jason Mesnick - Season 13
So weird how television distorts reality. Jason doesn't look that tall!
Brad Womack - Seasons 11 & 15
Moving into the big leagues, fellas!
Chris Soules - Season 19
Prince Farming is pretty tall.
Ben Flajnik - Season 16
I would have pegged Ben for even taller.
Byron Velvick - Season 6
Above six feet seems to be the height requirement for The Bachelor!
Jesse Palmer - Season 5
That seems like an ideal height for an athlete like he is.
Sean Lowe - Season 17
Handsome and tall!
Bob Guiney - Season 4
Come on. Adding the extra half is silly.
Charlie O'Connell - Season 7
Again with the half! Just own your 6'3" stature, boys!
Travis Lane Stork - Season 8
Almost gets to share the top trophy! So close, Travis!
Matt Grant - Season 12
Sitting pretty (and huge) at the top just above Ben!
