A lot of the time it's hard to take Bachelor relationships seriously since most of the Bachelors are not even together with their winners anymore. I'm not trying to be a cynic, but it is just pretty rare for one of these matches to work out. Something feels different this time though. There is this sincerity that comes with Ben Higgins that gives me hope. And there have been signs that Ben Higgins will actually marry the winner of The Bachelor.
Sure, plenty of Bachelor contestants have gotten engaged in the end, and the winner of Ben's season has not even been announced yet, but I just have a really good feeling about it. I have faith in Ben and the relationship he is coming out of this show with.
The 26-year-old has handled every moment with genuine intent and class. Yes, I know he said "I love you" to two different women within 24 hours, but I really feel like he is going to make the right choice, end up with the woman of his dreams, marry her, and give The Bachelor franchise some more credibility. If anyone can make a reality TV relationship work in actual reality, it's Ben Higgins and there are so many reasons why.
1. We Already Know He's Engaged
Ben Higgins revealed that he is engaged on Good Morning America! And he is over the moon about getting married. Now we just need to see who he picks!
2. He "Would Marry That Woman Tomorrow"
On The Women Tell All special, Ben said, "I would marry that woman tomorrow if I could" with such great conviction. It's evident that he is still happy in his relationship and is ready to be a husband.
3. He Is In Love
Everyone and their grandmother knows that Ben was in love with two women. Not only that, but he vocalized his love for both of them. He is not afraid to share his feelings and go after what he wants and what he wants is to be married!
4. He Has Two Great Candidates
Both Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher are amazing women. Ben fell in love with both of them so whoever he picks would be a great choice no matter what.
5. He Has Been Vocal About Looking For A Wife
Ben has made it so blatant that he wants to be married. He has said it over and over again that finding a wife was his objective for being on the show.
6. He Wants Mrs. Right Not Mrs. Right Now
Whenever Ben realized that he did not have potential for long-term relationships with a woman this season, he immediately let her go instead of letting things linger until the rose ceremony. He was very adamant about looking for the right partner.
7. He Wants To Be A Part Of The Legacy
Ben may have been playing around in this photo, but it is so clear that Ben wants a love like Sean and Catherine Lowe's marriage. Their success is inspiring and Ben seems ready for this to be his life.
8. He Is Emotionally Invested In The Process
Ben has shed so many tears this season. This is definitely not a dude who wants to be on TV for the sake of being on television: He wants to find love.
9. He Says The Process Worked
Ben tweeted that he is excited to show the world that he found lasting love once the winner is revealed.
10. He Is Great With Kids
Ben has made it clear that he is very good with children and wants to start a family of his own. A great step in that direction would be marrying the winner of his season!
11. He Has Support From Bachelor Nation
Ben's good friend Chris Soules tweeted a photo joking about Ben's future honeymoon location. There wouldn't be a honeymoon if there isn't a wedding, so I trust Ben's boy when it comes to predicting the good news with this tweet.
12. He Believes In The Franchise
Ben believes that The Bachelor and all its spin-offs are capable of producing last relationships, like Tanner and Jade Tolbert's, especially after attending their wedding.
13. He Is Ready To Take The Leap
This is super cheesy to say, but it cannot be ignored: Ben is so ready to be married. He is at a point in his life where he knows who he his and what he wants. And now we are all just waiting to know who he wants.
If anyone is going to give some credibility to the franchise, it is Ben Higgins. I would not be at all surprised if he ends up happily married with the winner of The Bachelor.
