Rise to Stardom

Ben Higgins, who easily got female attention during his youth, decided to earn fame on the small screen by appearing as a contestant on the 11th season of 'The Bachelorette', featuring Kaitlyn Bristowe, in May 2015. Despite being a fan favorite, he was left without a rose by Bristowe in the eighth week of the show. Higgins, as well as the entire Bachelor Nation was heartbroken over the elimination.

Realizing the disappointment among the fans of the show, he was announced as the next Bachelor during episode four of the first season of 'Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise' on August 24, 2015. This was his opportunity to pick his own partner on the 20th season of 'The Bachelor'. He ruled the hearts of the contestants of the show and the female fan base of Bachelor Nation equally. During the filming of the show, he got the opportunity to meet celebrities like rapper Ice Cube, comedian Kevin Hart, soccer players Alex Morgan, Kelley O'Hara, comedian Terry Fator, and Indiana Pacers basketball player Paul George. He also got to travel across the nation to Las Vegas, Nevada, Mexico City, Mexico, Pig Island in The Bahamas and his home state of Indiana.
