Every Emotion You Felt About Ben H. Becoming the Bachelor
The world of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is like a revolving door: the star finds a match, and one of his or her exes from the show becomes the subject of the new season. This week, Ben Higgins begins his stint as the new Bachelor, so it's an exciting time for those of us who can't get enough of the stud.
