The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever

2. Ben Higgins: Season 20

After failing to woo Kaitlyn Bristowe during her time as the Bachelorette, Ben Higgins got his chance to be the lead in season 20 of The Bachelor. It was a cause for celebration given how much of a fan-favorite Higgins has been since we first laid our eyes on him.

From the get-go, there was something really special about Higgins, his dreamy looks, and kindhearted soul that won over Bachelor Nation’s hearts. Or perhaps it was the fact that he called himself unlovable after Bristowe sent him home packing. Either way, there was just something about him that cast a spell on all of us.

But his vulnerable, emotional, and very human side spilled through when he confessed his love to not one but two contestants. In fact, he pulled a very big Bachelor no-no and uttered the words “I love you” to JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell. If you’re a fan of the shows, you know that is something they are not supposed to do, but the guy couldn’t help himself and was placed in quite a predicament because of it.

While things didn’t last with Bushnell in the long run, Higgins did eventually find love with his now-fiance, Jessica Clarke, with whom he has just bought a home with–a wedding to follow in a post-COVID world.

Given how much love Bachelor Nation feels for Ben Higgins, seeing him find his happily ever after is nothing short of amazing. May Bachelor Nation’s sweetheart always be smiling, happy, and stay absolutely head over heels in love with Jess!
