The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever revisits Ben Higgins’ season!
The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever kicks off this week by introducing (or reintroducing the world) to Ben Higgins. His introduction was full of people complimenting his character. We relived some of the limo entrances, including JoJo Fletcher wearing a unicorn mask, the chicken lady, and the twins, Haley and Emily Ferguson. The rest of the episode focused on dates and how a few of the women were doing now.
The women of Ben Higgins’ season
The first date we looked at was with Caila Quinn. Ben and Caila went on a drive around town with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube as passengers. The group purchased roadside flowers and popped into a liquor store before sharing a hot tub. Their chemistry was obvious from the very beginning.
The next lady we saw was Jubilee Sharpe. The episode had us relive their heart to heart conversation that took their relationship to the next level. Ben complimented Jubilee by saying she was a strong woman.
Ben’s season had many fun group dates, including when they went swimming with pigs in the Caribbean. The pigs weren’t as peaceful as everyone hoped, though.
Another featured woman on this episode of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever was Lace Morris, who was the first to kiss Ben. She was an emotional wreck from the first night. Not many of the women liked her since she may have had too much to drink. She confronted Ben about not looking at her enough during the rose ceremony. Eventually, her emotions got the best of her, and she decided to leave the house. Chris Harrison video chatted with her, and she said she’d become a whole different person now.
Next up was the season’s villain, Olivia Caridi, who received the first impression rose. No one in the house liked Olivia, and they celebrated her departure. Ben famously left Olivia stranded on an isolated island. Harrison interviewed her, and she knew she self-destructed when she saw Ben’s feelings toward her plummet. She was very hurt when she watched the season when it first aired. Ben joined the video chat and apologized to her. Harrison welcomed her back to The Bachelor family and gave her an open invitation to join paradise.
Ben’s time with Amanda Stanton was precious. Amanda is the single mom of two girls. She shared so much of her daughters with him. Amanda said none of her boyfriends had ever met her girls, but she let Ben meet them during her hometown date. But their time ended after hometowns.
Ben’s final three women were Caila, JoJo, and Lauren Bushnell. Caila was the first to go home because Ben couldn’t say he loved her back. They had an emotional goodbye, and then she joined Harrison on video. Caila’s doing well now as a lifestyle blogger in New York City–and she’s engaged!
Harrison also checked in with Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes during the “Bachelor in Quarantine” segment of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever. They have been traveling the world in a van since they left Bachelor in Paradise together. Both of them have embraced traveling, but they have an apartment in California too. Dean had a ring on his finger, and Harrison asked if they were married. Dean said he was committed to Caelynn, but they weren’t formally married. They said they would let Harrison officiate their marriage if they ever decided to get the government involved.
Ben shocked BachelorNation when he told both JoJo and Lauren B. that he loved them. Both women were incredibly happy, but ultimately Ben chose to propose to Lauren B., not JoJo, who went on to find love during her time as the Bachelorette. Ben and Jojo’s breakup was heartbreaking, to say the least.
At the end of the night, Harrison and Ben chatted again. They discussed how Ben made his decision to propose to Lauren B. They didn’t work out in the end, but Ben is now engaged to someone outside of Bachelor Nation, Jessica Clarke. Their chemistry was strong on camera. Their proposal story was adorable. Then before ending the chat, Ben presented Jessica with a rose that she gladly accepted.
Next week’s episode of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever is JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette.
