Drama, drama, drama. Chris Harrison teased some details about the upcoming season of The Bachelor, featuring Bachelorette alum Ben Higgins, on Wednesday, Nov. 18.

“Ben is going to be a phenomenal Bachelor,” the longtime host of the show, 44, told Good Morning America. “But at the same time, when you have somebody who is a great catch, there will be drama. I can’t wait for everybody to see this season.”

Higgins, 27, originally starred on Season 11 of The Bachelorette, vying for Kaitlyn Bristowe’s heart. He came in third place, behind runner-up Nick Viall and winner Shawn Booth.

“I think everybody is really going to fall in love with this guy,” Harrison gushed. “He’s just a very sweet, sincere guy.”

The Bachelor in Paradise host also reflected on his 15 years with the hit reality franchise, and shared his all-time favorite moment from the show’s history.

“Tristan and Ryan [Sutter]’s proposal, and then their wedding,” he said. “It really legitimized what we were doing. It let everybody know ‘this is a real thing. It was just that lightning-in-a bottle moment that probably set up the next 14 years.”

Season 20 of The Bachelor premieres on ABC on Jan. 4, 2016.
