Childhood & Early Life

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.

Rise to Stardom

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.

During his student life, Ben Higgins served as the Event Manager at Jonah Club Fish Fry for one year and three months in 2007-08. He was the Student Ministries Intern at the Warsaw Community Church for about a year since May 2009. In April 2011, he joined as the Marketing and Fundraising Coordinator at the Bakers Youth Club and served in that position for two years and four months.
