Ben Higgins is obviously approaching his love life using a different method by navigating his new relationship on his own terms.
Aye aye captain!
The reality TV star surprised the Bachelor Nation when he acknowledged the fact that he’s dating someone new after his recent breakup last two years from his fiance Lauren Bushnell.
In a peek from yesterday’s episode of “The Ben and Ashley I. Almost Famous podcast, Higgins is gradually unveiling the facts of his love life.
When addressing a fan’s question, the 29-year-old actor confirmed that his girlfriend wasn’t a contestant on the show (Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor) airing on ABC. He went further to explain that, “The reason that I just didn’t want to put out names yet is because at some level I didn’t even really mean to slip up. I didn’t think I slipped up. I’m not hiding anything.”
He also confirmed he isn’t quite ready to make the mystery lady known to his millions followers and fans yet. He, however, made it clear that he is waiting for “the right time” to “publicly put everything out there” with hopes to avoid “the pressure” that comes with dating in the spotlight.
“Dating is fun, and it’s exciting, and I’ve been able to get back into it,” he explained, “So life’s good, but she’s not from Colton’s season. Not at all. Not from the show.”
But what else can be said of the lady that snatched the young bachelor off the market? From his point of view, she is “the best, purest person” he knows. However, the most shocking part of it all is that they are currently involved in a long-distance relationship.
Fans of The Bachelor franchise have apparently identified Ben’s mystery girlfriend as a Nashville, Tenn. resident and a recent college graduate by the name of Jessica Clarke.
