There has been speculation lately regarding Ben Higgin’s relationship status not long after his breakup with Lauren Bushnell; is Ben currently in a relationship with someone?
According to E! News, the answer is a solid “no!” In a report from the publication, the former star of The Bachelor was at the 2017 iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas where he stated his status in the dating pool.
Ben said, although he has been hanging out with lucky ladies lately, he isn’t ready to choose one just yet. He said, “I’m not trying to hide anything. I’ve gone on a couple dates. It’s been nothing but dates.”
According to the reality star, “it’s all been blown out of proportion,” but he has hung out with several women lately, despite not being in a serious relationship, yet.
Higgins was formerly dating – and about to get married to – Lauren after the 20th season of The Bachelor. However, the pair called their relationship off shortly after, and Bushnell is now dating Dave Antin.
Sources at the time of their split claimed they were merely incompatible and it was pointless to continue their romance. It’s better to move on when the initial sparks have worn off; it’s not meant to be!
As for Arie Luyendyk Junior, Ben opened up about what he thinks of the new Bachelor star who will compete for the love of many young beautiful women.
Ben has high hopes for him; “he’s going to do fine,” though the former star of the Bachelor did admit that Dean Unglert and Peter Kraus would’ve been great options for the prestigious honor as well. Ben thinks that Arie “is a little bit of mystery though.” Ben claimed that Arie is a great contestant because of his age and maturity, as well as his background and family history.
