Ben Higgins and Dean Unglert were also with her on the red carpet. Ben seems to think that Colton Underwood as ABC’s The Bachelor is a great idea. He shared saying, “I think we are going to see his whole story play out throughout this show. We are going to see failures, success, and hopefully he’s down on one knee, and he’s in love. But with Colton, we are getting the raw view of it, and I think Jason and Blake were kind of prepped to be the Bachelor.” Ben and Dean have both done the show, but they are also both still single.

Becca’s time on The Bachelor

If you remember, when Becca Tilley was on The Bachelor her big storyline was her virginity as well. They like to talk about this kind of thing. She was on Ben Higgins season. Things didn’t work out with them, but Ben and Becca are still friends.

Becca Tilley ended up dating Robert Graham for a while. He is from Bachelor Nation and was on The Bachelorette. Things just didn’t work out between these two either and they split. Maybe viewers will get lucky and Becca and Ben will realize they were meant to be someday.

Reality Steve shared that a girl named Heather is on The Bachelor this season. She is actually a virgin as well. This is going to be something they really focus on. This could be a reason that they picked her as a potential suitor for Colton Underwood. It will be interesting to see how far she ends up making it. Steve will have those spoilers before the show even starts to air.

The new season of ABC’s The Bachelor starring Colton Underwood will start airing in January of 2019.
