Born March 23, 1988, in Denver, Colorado, Ben Higgins was the second runner-up on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season 11 of The Bachelorette in 2015. Higgins won the hearts of viewers when he confessed that he had always felt he was “unlovable.” He was chosen as the leading man on season 20 of The Bachelor in January 2016. After narrowing the contestants down to the two finalists, JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell, Higgins ultimately proposed to Bushnell in the show’s March finale.
Higgins and Bushnell are still engaged and are premiering a reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, in October 2016 that will follow the next chapter of their lives as they prepare for their wedding.
