It's Official! Ben Higgins Is the New Bachelor

Big news for Bachelor Nation! ABC has confirmed that Ben Higgins has been selected as the next star of The Bachelor. Higgins came in as Kaitlyn Bristowe's second runner-up on the recent season of The Bachelorette, and he's a fan favorite. When we caught up with him at the "Men Tell All," Higgins said he would consider the gig if asked. "As a single man, if they put 25 women in a house with similar personality styles and they have already gotten to know you through another show, and you date them — yeah, that sounds great."

We're rooting for him — heaven knows we're still in love with him thanks to his Instagram account!
